Most of us think of our fat cells as the enemy, simply accumulating “volume” to form saddlebags, love handles, and muffin tops – basically, robbing us of our youthfulness and self-confidence. Because of this, many turn to elective procedures that focus on the elimination of fat cells – procedures like liposuction or fat-freezing techniques. However, as intuitive as this might seem, recent medical research into how fat cells actually work now tells us that this approach, in the long run, is not only ineffective, it could actually be counterproductive.
OUR FAT IS AN ORGAN!
Previously viewed as just the body’s storage depot, recent research shows fat cells are dynamic, complex, and influential entities that affect an astounding number of bodily functions. As an endocrine organ, healthy lean fat is incredible and actually supports the processes that keep us lean! It helps regulate our metabolism and our immune system, and produces hormones and proteins, all of which are essential to a lean healthy body. When fat cells become enlarged, this critical organ essentially malfunctions at the exact job it is meant to manage, in turn creating detrimental effects on our health leading to heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and inflammatory disorders. Not to mention fatigue, joint pain, and low self-esteem.

Verjú does not harm the fat cell.
FAT CONTROLS YOUR BRAIN!
Our fat releases a multitude of hormones that affect our mood, hunger, and myriad of bodily functions. A hormone called Leptin is secreted by our fat cells when we eat which, when received by our hypothalamus, tells our brain that we are full. When our fat cells become enlarged, the Leptin signal is constantly being sent and the hypothalamus gland which, like an overloaded breaker, switches off and stops responding to the signal so we never get the message to stop eating! In essence, the fatter we get the more out of control the cycle becomes. Even when we know we are digging our grave with our teeth, we still can’t get out of the deadly loop because our hormones are controlling our brain.
THE IMPACT OF ENLARGED FAT CELLS!
Healthy lean fat cells secrete a hormone called Adiponectin, which assists the liver in processing or removing fat and toxins and our muscles to utilize insulin and keep our blood sugar down. When fat cells become enlarged they don’t produce enough Adiponectin and thus the liver becomes less efficient, muscles cannot use glucose for energy, more fat gets stored, and there is an increase in blood pressure. TNF and IL-6 are two other hormones that in a lean body regulate the immune system and control fatty acid and cholesterol production, however, obesity can lead to a surplus resulting in high cholesterol, heart disease, and insulin resistance, leading to type 2 diabetes. The bottom line – enlarged fat cells can send our entire body into dysfunction!
HOW TO PRESS THE RESET BUTTON
How do we get off the vicious growing fat spiral? First, see your fat as an organ and not an enemy! Cutting out or killing fat cells certainly is not the answer. If you had a breathing problem you wouldn’t cut out your lung but would attempt to get this essential organ working right.
Your fat cells are the greatest ally you have in the battle of the bulge IF you press the “reset button” and cause them to send the right message to your brain. There is the traditional method of diet and exercise, at which 80% of people will fail because of the exceptional will power it takes to overcome the cascade of hormonal forces listed above, or there is Verjú.
Understand that fat cells, like all cells of the body, communicate one to another through a series of neuro connections. Verjú causes our fat cells to release their fatty content for safe removal from the body by the lymphatic system. These fat cells now begin to act and function like healthy lean fat cells again; releasing the correct messages to your brain and, even more exciting, they begin a communication cascade throughout the fat organ causing other fat cells to react the same way, releasing their content and returning their hormone responses back to the positive! In other words, you NEED your fat cells to communicate this message to become lean.
WHY A PROCEDURE THAT KILLS FAT CELLS DOES NOT SOLVE THE PROBLEM
If you are looking only at spot reduction, you should be aware that procedures such as liposuction, or those that kill fat cells, can at best provide temporary improvement in your appearance. Statistics show that within the first year, the fat cells will regenerate or grow larger in new areas of your body, such as the arms and back, to compensate for what was taken (perhaps the fat organ’s attempt to heal itself). Fat will then start to regenerate in the treated areas within 4-5 years. The latest research shows that in fact these fat cells can multiply up to 300 billion times, shattering the previous notion that fat cells could only grow larger, but couldn’t grow new cells.
Yes, you read that right; our bodies can grow new fat cells! This is where a procedure like Verjú can make a significant difference. Verjú is a non-invasive, low-level laser therapy solution that effectively helps “reset” your fat cells to their healthy lean state. Verjú is the only green laser procedure in the world clinically proven to reduce the circumference of the waist, hips, and thighs and treat the appearance of cellulite.
