The Truth: About Double Chin

Posted on June 13, 2010. Filed under: Articles on Health |

A double chin is not just a sign of fat.

When the body is short of salt, it means the body really is short of water.  The salivary glands sense the salt shortage and are obliged to produce more saliva to lubricate the act of chewing and swallowing and also to supply the stomach with water that it needs for breaking down foods.  Circulation to the salivary glands increases and the blood vessels become “leaky” in order to supply the glands with water to manufacture saliva.  The “leakiness” spills beyond the area of the glands themselves, causing increased bulk under the skin of the chin, the cheeks and into the neck.
