Adiponectin is the Body's Fat Burning Hormone
As your Metabolic Research Center consultant will tell you, hormones play a critical role in burning fat and losing weight. After your initial consultation, hormone levels are checked and followed by an adjustment plan to get them into the optimal fat-burning range.
One of the hormones playing a role in the body's ability to burn fat and lose weight is Adiponectin. This adipocyte-specific protein naturally circulates in high concentrations in the body. Studies have shown that adiponectin levels are quite a bit lower in overweight individuals than lean ones. Many doctors see this hormone as the one that tells your body to burn fat for fuel. Additional studies have shown that the more adiponectin you have circulating in your bloodstream the better you'll burn fat. The trick part is that when you're already overweight, your levels of this hormone are naturally lower.
There are several supplements which can boosts your body's production of adiponectin, like the high-quality supplements available through the Metabolic Research Center. Increasing your magnesium intake is one way to produce additional adiponectin. You can also snack on seeds, like pumpkin seeds, as well as eat more green, leafy vegetables like kale and spinach. At Metabolic, we believe in getting the majority of your nutrients from real food and using supplements to restore any deficits.
The Metabolic Research Center Has the Solution
Another aggressive approach that is being talked about online is called "intermittent fasting" where you work long periods of fasting into your week, as high as 24 hours. While this can significantly increase adiponectin levels, we do not recommend it. The negative effects on your health are not worth it when compared to simply getting more greens into your diet. To learn what methods are right for you, and what hormones you need to adjust, schedule your initial free consultation with a Metabolic Research Center consultant today. After we get to know you and your lifestyle better, we'll be able to set up a plan for you to get on the path to losing 2 to 5 pounds per week in no time.
