Toxins Stored In Your Fat Cells Are Making You Fat And Swollen. Here’s How To Cleanse Them
Therefore, toxicity is almost impossible to avoid, which means that our digestive system and liver can easily become overwhelmed. We are all designed to continuously and naturally remove toxins from the body.
Toxins can be divided into two categories: water-soluble and fat-soluble. Water-soluble toxins are easily flushed out of the body via the blood and kidneys.
On the other hand, the fat-soluble toxins are more challenging to be eliminated. However, the human body is designed to continuously and naturally remove toxins. These fat-soluble toxins include pesticides, preservatives, food additives, heavy metals, pollutants, plastics and other environmental chemicals. They need to become water-soluble in order the body to be able to eliminate them entirely.
It is believed, however, that in the case of a balanced digestion, stress levels and detoxification pathways, the storage of these harmful toxins and chemicals in our bodies can be prevented.
To be more specific, when we digest a meal, the nutritional and toxic fats are shuffled through the stomach into the small intestine where bile secreted from the liver and gallbladder emulsifies them. There are millions of small villi and lacteals in the small intestine, which are little finger-like “grasses,” or mucus membranes.
They sweep the gut and help the absorption of nutritional fats and send the toxic fats on to the liver for processing. If this detoxification pathway is damaged, the body will not remove toxic fats, but will store them instead.
Moreover, the very beginning of the body’s lymphatic system is called the Gut Associated Lymphatic Tissue (GALT), and it surrounds the entire intestinal tract. It is here, in fact, that lacteals help absorb and process both nutritional and toxic fats.
