Can Detoxing Underarms Cut Down on Abdominal Fat?

May 18th, 2012

The proportion of fat to body weight usually increases as we age. Especially women after menopause around 50 years of age. The extra pounds pile on around the midsection, causing that dreaded middle age spread also known as muffin top in women and beer bellies in men. This dreaded abdominal fat, is in actuality, visceral fat and it hides deep in the abdominal cavity of your body near the organs, which is why it can be a key component in many health problems. The other kind of fat that you can grab onto is known as subcutaneous fat.

Visceral fat is known to cause metabolic disturbances and increased risk for type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.  Some believe it is also  associated with the need for gallbladder surgery and even breast cancer, which brings to mind how our bodies deal with toxins.

For instance, did you know that many of the branded deodorants today on the market have aluminum, and other ingredients known to clog the sweat ducts underneath your arms?  One of the best-selling products is the Herbalix Detox Deodorant, which helps detox aluminum from the body through use nightly. More and more consumers are switching to non-aluminum deodorant today.

Check the labels to see if your deodorant products contain any type of aluminum, alum, petroleum or propylene glycol.  These ingredients can lead to the buildup of chemicals under your arms, resulting in irritation or worse. Antiperspirants may leave  alum salts in the underarm and some believe it can cause undetermined DNA damage.  Just remember that the detox deodorant Herbalix makes can help clean out your lymph glands and tissues to rid the body of aluminum.

And remember that  toxins in our bodies cause the accumulation of abdominal fat, which stores the toxins deep in the visceral fat, often causing excess inflammation and metabolic disorders.  That is why Herbalix is soon to announce a new and exciting product that uses the same theory of detoxing the underarms, to detox the fat in your body — and in particular, helping to rid the body’s visceral fat of toxins – while you sleep.  What for news soon.

Study Finds Physical Fitness Curbs Frequency and Severity of Colds

October 31st, 2011

According to a study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine people who are active and physically fit not only have milder
colds, but they have fewer colds. The severity of symptoms fell by 41 percent among those who felt the fittest and by 31 percent among those who were the most active.

In addition, the number of days the participants had cold symptoms varied quite a lot between winter and autumn, with an average of 13 days in the winter and 8 days in the autumn. Being older, male, and married seemed to reduce the frequency of colds, but after taking into
account some other influential factors, the most significant factors were
perceived fitness and the amount of exercise taken in.

The number of days with symptoms among those who said they were physically active on five or more days of the week and felt fit, was almost one half (43% to 46% less) that of those who exercised on only one or fewer days of the week.

Bouts of exercise spark a temporary rise in immune system cells circulating around the body, say the authors. Although these levels fall back within a few hours, each bout is likely to enhance surveillance of harmful viruses and bacteria,  so reducing the number and severity of infections, such as the common cold.

Nonetheless, no matter how much you exercise, when you do get a cold, it is nice to know that there is cold and flu relief from the Herbalix Respiratory Freedom™ Relief Salve. Get it this month for less!
