Researchers have shown that having a big behind signifies good overall health and also lowers the risk of chronic diseases.
Researchers at Oxford University show that fat distribution below the waist level acts as a barrier against diabetes, heart diseases and even problems related to obesity. Thus proper distribution of fat is important.
In the Journal of Obesity, they wrote:
“It is the protective role of lower body, that is [thigh and backside] fat, that is striking. The protective properties of the lower-body fat depot have been confirmed in many studies conducted in subjects with a wide range of age, BMI and co-morbidities,”
The Game Of Body Shapes
Health scholars have identified two major body shapes in people with more than 20% body fat. These are Apple-Shaped and Pear-Shaped body types.
Having a pear shaped body is very good. The fat stored in a pear shaped body is mainly in Thighs and buttocks. This fat is metabolically stable and thus prevents the onset of diabetes.
People with apple shaped body are in serious danger. They are under a constant threat of obesity related problems. This fat is metabolically active and thus has a profound effect on the brain and body. The apple shaped body is marked by a lot of tummy fat.
People with pot bellies also fall in the same risk bracket. The researchers have shown that this belly fat is also directly linked with widespread problems like chronic back pain and hair fall.
Managing Weight Gain In The Brain
The research has shown that Leptin levels in the body are also directly linked to the buttox fat.
The main role of Leptin in the body is to regulate appetite. The people who are obese, find it extremely difficult to control their desire for food. Their brain becomes unresponsive to the hormone Leptin, creating the problem known as Leptin resistance.
Elite daily reports that “Having a big butt also favors leptin levels in the female body, which is a hormone responsible for regulating the weight, and the dinopectina, a hormone with anti-inflammatory, vascular-protective and anti-diabetic attributes. The adipose tissue of the buttocks traps harmful fatty particles and prevents cardiovascular disease.”
Big Behind = Big Brain
For maintaining your healthy behind you need a proper diet and supplementation.
Omega 3 fats play a very important in maintaining the buttox fat, which is also extremely useful in boosting the memory and cognitive abilities. This proper supplementation also helps your body and brain to stay healthier for long.
It has been found in the research that children born to women with wide curvy hips are more likely to be intelligent compared to women with thin and curveless hips.
