Visceral fat is toxic body fat stored within the abdominal cavity around vital organs such as the heart, liver, pancreas and intestines.
Storing higher amounts of visceral fat is often associated with increased risks of a number of serious health problems, including:
· Type 2 diabetes
· Breast cancer
· Colorectal cancer
· Alzheimer’s disease
· Cardiovascular disease
· Metabolic syndrome
· Other obesity related diseases
BVI is the only app through an API available to calculate visceral fat without the need of additional hardware.
