Why do men and women accumulate weight on the belly after the “door”? And why in particular is the weight accumulated on the belly visceral fat? Over time, experts have responded in a very varied way to the problem of the belly and visceral fat, risky for health because it is linked to greater exposure to diabetes and coronary heart disease. In women, one of the possible explanations is hormonal: with menopause, the level of estrogen drops, causing a tendency to accumulate fat on the belly “in a man style”. But today an interesting scientific discovery could explain how this phenomenon occurs more precisely, and also how to lose the belly after the “wings”.
According to a study published in the journal Nature, and conducted by Dr. Vishwa Deep Dixit, Professor of Comparative Medicine and Immunobiology, the accumulation of weight on the belly occurs because the energies are not burned as they should but become more easily accumulated fat, that is, metabolic efficiency is lost. According to Dr. Dixit, this happens due to an immune problem : macrophages, a type of immune system cell, are also found in visceral fat and with age they tend to become inflamed and stop communicating properly with their neurotransmitters
It is perhaps no coincidence that researchers at the Washington State University of Spokane also arrived at a similar solution, who would have identified the risk of spreading prostate cancer cells in the “inflammatory” activity of this enzyme. And that they too have identified some old antidepressants as a way to keep the enzyme at bay.
The antidepressant in question would be clorgyline , but it has never been marketed and at the moment more in-depth studies are needed to test its effectiveness in humans, given that in both cases, both for the belly and for the tumors, the studies are been conducted on mice.
