5 Tricks to Optimize Your #1 Fat Burning Hormone LEPTIN (Anyone OVER 40)

There are 3 hormones which are primarily responsible
for how hungry we feel. The first is ghrelin, which stimulates hunger;
it is produced in the stomach and during fasting periods levels of ghrelin are elevated. Overweight
people have less ghrelin than others, and irregular sleep can effects its natural production. The second is peptide YY (PYY), which suppresses
appetite and is released by the ilium approximately 15mins after you start eating. Overweight people produce less PYY than normal,
and so will not feel as satisfied after a meal; this could be an effect of being overweight
rather than a cause though. The purpose of PYY is to prevent over eating. The third is leptin, which suppresses appetite,
and is produced, in adipose fat. Levels of circulating leptin are proportional to the
amount of adipose fat, meaning that overweight people produce more. Some sugars such as high fructose corn syrup
can inhibit the action of leptin, and regular over eating can make an individual resistant.
The purpose of leptin is to help maintain a healthy amount of body fat, and prevent
obesity. For more information on hunger hormones please
