Repair Your Villi – Lose the Weight!

Have you ever wondered why the older you get the harder it is to maintain your weight, let alone lose it?

There are people that work out every day for an hour and eat low-fat foods, and they still can’t get those last few pounds off. As they get older they notice that their cravings for fats and sweets increase. They get more illnesses. They have more physical problems. They’re tired all the time.


In your small intestine there are finger-like protrusions called “villi”. If you look it up in the dictionary it’s under “villus”. It is through these villi that absorption of nutrients from food takes place. Through the years your villi gets damaged and break off.

Healthy Villi is in the photo on the left – Unhealthy Villi is the photo on the right.

Things that damage your villi are:

  • Stress
  • Alcohol
  • Additives & Preservatives
  • Airborne, Water & Soil Toxins
  • Medications & Drugs
  • Smoking
  • Fatty Foods
  • Salt
  • Lack of Fibre-Packed Foods
  • Not drinking enough Water

As your villi continue to become damaged, it becomes increasingly difficult for your body to absorb nutrients.

So what happens when your body is not absorbing the nutrients out of the food? First you start needing more food; your appetite increases as do your cravings; because your body needs more nutrients. You also start to crave fat and sugars because they are the easiest substance for your body to absorb. You become fatigued when your body is not getting the proper nutrition. When your villi is not healthy, your body thinks its starving and stores instead of burns fat. You may be saying “Well, I eat really healthy and I eat low fat foods and natural foods and I take vitamins”. Some of you may even be working out at the gym. Even though you may be doing all these things, you can still experience the symptoms just described. The underlying problem is most likely absorption. No matter how much good food and vitamins you take in, if your body is not absorbing them, then it’s a total waste.

How to fix: Start by weight control from the inside. To get rid of those last few pounds and keep it off, feed your body on a cellular level. Your body can then repair and rebuild the villi to the healthy state it was on when you were younger.
