Adipose tissue. Is it just fat?Adipose tissue

Adipose tissue is a particular type of fat that has a primary role of storing energy has many benefits. But what happens when we have too much adipose tissue? There is actually recent research that describes this tissue as an organ, specifically a major endocrine organ. What types of this type of tissue are there? Where is this fatty tissue located and what are some specific uses of this type of fat? Are men more prone to this particular type of fat and if so, why is that? Is this tissue dangerous for us? Fat stores and fat in the food that we eat, serves many purposes. It’s like many other types of things. Moderation is the key. The old saying of “too much of anything is no good for you”, certainly rings true here. Body fat insulates us, believe it or not it also greatly helps our metabolism. When we accumulate too much of Adipose tissue, what can we do to reduce it and is this actually wise? Infrared heat, both far Infrared (FIR) as well as Near Infrared (NIR) heat energies have been show to help reduce fat stores. They help by emulsifying fat stores (including cellulite) to such infinitesimal particles that they are actually returned to their original form: calories. The body then consumes these particles, naturally, as energy. This can be applied to the body in many different ways such as far Infrared saunas or far infrared as well as near infrared body wraps such as the Formostar Infrared Body wraps. I found a very informative article on this fat on If you would like to read the article, I left a brief portion below and you can click onto to read the rest.

In humans, adipose tissue is located beneath the skin (subcutaneous fat), around internal organs (visceral fat), in bone marrow (yellow bone marrow), intermuscular (Muscular system) and in the breast tissue. Adipose tissue is found in specific locations, which are referred to as adipose depots. Apart from adipocytes, which comprise the highest percentage of cells within adipose tissue, other cell types are present, collectively termed stromal vascular fraction (SVF) of cells. SVF includes preadipocytesfibroblasts, adipose tissue macrophages, and endothelial cells. Adipose tissue contains many small blood vessels. In the integumentary system, which includes the skin, it accumulates in the deepest level, the subcutaneous layer, providing insulation from heat and cold.
