For lots of woman, their large butt can be a source of pride and the envy of others. For some, it can be a source of worry and insecurity. If you are in the latter group, scientists from the University of Oxford have some good news. It turns out that women with naturally occurring ample posteriors are more intelligent and more resistant to chronic illnesses.
A study of 16,000 women found that those with big butts had lower levels of cholesterol and were far more likely to produce hormones that help to metabolise sugars. So women with a large booty are less likely to have diabetes and heart health problems.
In the female body, a big rear end favours the production of leptin and high dinopectina levels. Leptin is a hormone that helps regulate weight and dinopectina is a hormone with anti-inflammatory, vascular protective and antidiabetic properties.
The adipose tissues in the buttocks actually traps fatty particles and prevents cardiovascular disease. Similar studies have found that women with large behinds, wide hips and smaller waists may actually live longer.
When it comes to intelligence levels, having a big backside means having excess levels of Omega 3 fats. Omega 3’s have been demonstrated to catalyse brain development.
These researchers also found that children born to women with wide hips are intellectually superior to children of slimmer, less curvy women.
If you were looking for a reason to be proud of your ample behind this research may be just what the doctor ordered.
