We’ve all known that “special” person who can eat second helpings of just about anything and not gain weight. Many of us want to be that person, yet it doesn’t seem possible when we’re still searching for ways to boost fat burn.
What is Adiponectin hormone?
Adiponectin is a hormone created by fat cells, used to regulate metabolic processes, including glucose regulation and fatty acid oxidation, or, how the body uses sugar and fat for energy and weight loss.
Research shows that adipose (white fat) tissue is not just an inert storage depot for lipids but is also a vital endocrine organ that plays a significant role in the integration of endocrine, metabolic, and inflammatory signals for control of energy balance.
Obesity is associated with low adiponectin levels, and adiponectin has been shown to reverse insulin resistance associated with obesity.
Summing up, adiponectin is made in and released from our fat cells, improves insulin sensitivity, and helps us lose fat. How strange that our fat cells help us lose fat! More importantly, how can we make more of it?
