visceral fat


Active Fat is Visceral fat is body fat that is stored within the abdominal cavity and is therefore stored around a number of important internal organs such as the liver, pancreas and intestines.


Visceral fat is sometimes referred to as ‘active fat’ because research has shown that this type of fat plays a distinctive and potentially dangerous role affecting how our hormones function.

Scientists show the fat, which is most visible around the middle with high levels of it restricting the function of major organs, increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, obesity, cancer and dementia. Storing higher amounts of visceral fat is associated with increased risks of a number of health problems including type 2 diabetes.

Researchers have found that greater consumption of saturated and trans fats was linked with higher mortality rates than consuming the same number of calories from carbohydrates.
