In human body, the seven fundamental principles that support the basic structure of the body are Rasa (plasma), Rakta (blood), Mamsa (muscle), Medo (fat), Asthi (bone), Majja (bonemarrow), Sukra (sperm) and the eighth Dhatu is known as Ojas. In our body, it takes about 22- 24 days to make a fat substance called adipose tissue, because the food we eat becomes Rasa Dhatu in 24 hours and in that rasa heena bhaga excretes in the form of Mala, Mutra.
Then takes place the formation of Rakta Dhatu from rasa Dhatu (Rasa Dhatu -> Rakta Dhatu ->Mamsa Dhatu -> Medo Dhatu -> Asthi Dhatu -> Majja Dhatu -> Sukra Dhatu). Totally 42 days is required in our body to form above Saptadhatus, in which it takes 21 days to make the fat tissue which indirectly provides nourishment and support to all the parts of our body.

These adipose fats travels in blood vessels, stores the fat cells where we needed and utilizes the stored fat whenever are necessary.
