Adiponectin – Secret Weight Loss Weapon

10 Oct, 2019 0

Adiponectin is not only a small protein produced in fat cells but also a hormone. Being naturally produced by the body, adiponectin plays an essential and fundamental role in the control of type 2 diabetes, weight gain and atherosclerosis.

Adiponectin can be your secret weight-loss weapon. Why? This protein-based hormone boosts your metabolism, enhances the ability of your muscle to use Carbs for energy and increases the rate in which the body breaks down fat. To make fat-burning adiponectin hormone function you must live a healthy lifestyle. Eat properly. Stick to foods high in proteins and amino acids. Exercise and get enough sleep every night.

Do you know that there is a contrary relation between the amount of fat you carry and levels of adiponectin in your body?

Adiponectin is really efficient in preventing weight gain. Working in tandem with leptin, adiponectin helps to regulate your body weight in a good way. The function of these two hormones enhances “communication” to and from your brain, allowing you to know when the right amount of food has been consumed.

It is also known that losing excess weight helps stimulate the production of adiponectin significantly. Although this fat-loss friend is produced by fat, it can efficiently help you to burn it up! But if you gain weight, your body starts to produce less of this natural fat burner.

Higher levels of this natural fat-loss hormone are associated with:

  • More calorie burning;
  • Increased insulin sensitivity;
  • Increasing muscle efficiency; and
  • Curbing appetite.

Is it possible to make your fat cells working for you, not against you?

Possible! Even though adiponectin is made by your fat cells, it actually helps you lose fat by perfecting how your body processes insulin and glucose from the food products you eat. There are foods that can keep your adiponectin levels up to keep your weight down.

Top 5 foods that increase your adiponectin:

  1. Avocados – the tastiest fat to eat! Having high amounts of potassium, folate and magnesium and being rich in monosaturated fats, avocados will surely increase your adiponectin levels. Take benefits of avocados as these tasty fats effectively act on your belly fat and help to reduce it
  2. Olive oil – the polyphenols present in this product helps your body to secrete adiponectin that helps to burn more belly fat as well as regulate the metabolism of fat and sugar. Top your salads with olive oil and lose weight more productively;
  3. Pumpkins – Whether you like eating pumpkins or pumpkin seeds – both products are perfect sources to increase adiponectin levels in the body;
  4. Chocolate – Surprised? This tasty food, which is known to make you fat, stimulates the protein that kills your fat. However, there is a small secret. You should eat dark chocolate. Only this kind of chocolate can stimulate adiponectin; and
  5. Peanuts – Of course, these are not low-calorie foods. However, they are beneficial during weight loss. Packed with nutrients and proteins, peanuts help the body burn extra calories. What’s more, they increase the levels of adiponectin. Therefore, weight-loss diets that include peanuts are often more efficient than diets excluding them.
