Correlation between Obesity and Connective Tissue

Fascia & Nutrition Part 4 - Fascia and Obesity

Being overweight is bad for connective tissue. In order to keep the fascia as healthy as possible, excess weight should be avoided. Excess weight puts a lot of strain on the connective tissue. Adequate sleep is also important for connective tissue. By bedtime every night, you’re likely to be about an inch shorter than when you got up. But assuming you sleep lying down, each evening’s rest restores you to full height - connective tissue and intervertebral discs can regenerate and soak themselves up with new fluid.

Simply put, healthy fascia requires a healthy lifestyle including proper diet, exercise and sleep.
