What represents the term Body Fat?
Body fat is the body’s energy depot. Without fat, certain vitamins and minerals cannot be resorbed in the body, hormones cannot be produced, and fats also have important reproductive functions. Fats store energy, fats regulate body temperature, and so on. The percentage of body fat or fat is an indicator of the amount of adipose tissue of a person and is expressed as a percentage. This percentage is higher in women than in men, primarily due to the needs of childbirth, hormonal and other functions. Fats are stored in the body in subcutaneous adipose tissue, and also, fat deposits have a protective function around the internal organs.
