How Healthy is That Extra Junk in the Trunk?

November 06, 2013 2 min read

One-hit wonder Sir Mix-A-Lot put it succinctly: "I like big butts, and I cannot lie!" It's interesting to note that a lot of the women that are believed to be supremely beautiful these days tend to be packing a bit more junk in the trunk. You've got women like Jennifer Lopez: jennifer-lopez-celebrity-plastic-surgery Nicki Minaj: [caption id="attachment_30562" align="alignleft" width="514"]Source: Source:[/caption] Beyonce: beyonce-bo-joke1 The one thing that all of these lovely ladies have in common is the size of their - to put it as Ellen would say - "badonkadonk". But did you know that these ladies may actually be healthier thanks to their ample cans?

Big Butts = Healthier You?

A study published by Oxford University revealed that women with big butts are actually protected against obesity-related diseases like diabetes, high cholesterol, and heart disease. They have lower cholesterol, lower blood glucose levels, and less risk of inflammation as a result of their body fat. BUTT How is this possible? Interestingly enough, it's all about the location of the fatty deposits… Women with extra belly fat tend to have a higher rate of heart disease and diabetes, as the fat is metabolically active. It produces toxic chemicals called cytokines, which cause inflammation in the body that can lead to heart disease, arthritis, diabetes, and even a few forms of cancer. However, the fat located around the hips is much more stable, less active, and releases fewer cytokines. This means that the fat is less likely to cause health problems - particularly obesity-related problems. As a bonus, having extra fat in the booty rather than in the stomach means that the levels of leptin are more balanced - promoting reduced appetite. Adinopectin - a hormone that protects your blood vessels and fight heart disease - is produced in greater quantities, and the fatty tissue in your butt traps fatty particles in your body that can cause harm. trasero-sexy-ass-sexy-boobs-hollywood-boobs-big-lucy-pinder-glamour-model-Modelling-career-lucy-1600x1200-pinder-photos-wallpapers-nude-sexy-big-ass-nice-boobs-lucy-pinder-biography-lucy-topless-560x350 All in all, having a large bottom means that you run a much lower risk of developing health problems - particularly problems with fat, cholesterol, and glucose.

The Role of Omega-3 in Big Butts

Interestingly enough, Omega-3 fatty acids play a role in the development of those two beautiful fat deposits that give your butt the rounded curve us men love. Having a large bottom requires an excess amount of Omega-3 fatty acids in the body - meaning you're getting more of this fatty acid than your body needs. That is actually a good thing in this case, as Omega-3 is a nutrient that fuels your brain. High levels of Omega-3 can help to prevent arthritis, fight heart disease, promote healthy brain function, and improve neural development. Studies have shown that women that have larger butts and wider hips have children that are smarter than the offspring of slimmer women. userimage-208747 To all the ladies out there with big butts, congratulations on having not just a delicious figure, but also having a much healthier body than those of us with a bit extra around the waist!
