If you need to lose weight, you probably know how hard it can be. Scientists have been trying to figure out why it's so hard for decades. They discovered a lot of good information along the way, including thyroid issues, metabolism function, and many other reasons. But a new study may have gotten to the heart of the issue. And the results of this study could show you what you need to do before you go on a diet.
Scientists at the University of Bonn discovered that they can cause overweight mice to lose weight. All they have to do is convert white fat cells into brown cells. When they do, the fat literally melts away. That's because brown cells have an extremely high number of mitochondria. These are the power stations that burn white fat by converting it into thermal energy. So converting the white fat into brown fat caused the mice to quickly lose significant amounts of weight. Sounds simple.
But here's the problem. The researchers discovered that there was something that kept this conversion from happening. That something was inflammation. The body's inflammatory response blocks white fat cells from turning into brown cells. This is a huge discovery! It explains why obesity is such a huge problem in our country.

Remember, inflammation doesn't just happen. There's a reason for it. And the body uses inflammation to treat injury or damage to tissue. The body also uses inflammation to fight infection. So if your body has some sort of injury or infection that won't go away, you're going to find it extremely hard to lose weight. But once you remove the injury or infection, you may lose weight without hardly lifting a finger.
Now, what is the most likely cause of injury in the body? It could be just about anything. For some people, it might be an infected tooth from a root canal. For others, it might be chronic sinus infections. But for most people, it's usually leaky gut syndrome. This is where there's minute damage to the lining of the gut – usually from a poor diet. This damage allows substances to leak out of the intestines and into the bloodstream that shouldn't be in the bloodstream. In addition to the damaged intestine (which can cause inflammation), this can act like a systemic infection (also causing inflammation).
So if you're needing to lose weight, start by finding out if you have any unwanted inflammation in your body. Fixing that problem could make losing weight much, much easier. An anti-inflammatory, such as Reduloxin, can help reduce the inflammation. And it can help heal the damaged tissue in your gut. But if you don't fix the cause of it, the inflammation will keep coming back.
