Fat loss is substantially harder as one ages. Hormonally, the body has specific requirements that oftentimes are not being met. If you have tried and failed continuously at weight loss, our suggestion to you is to get a blood test of your current hormone levels. By identifying the hormonal deficiencies you are experiencing, you can take control of your weight before it worsens. There are a number of hormones that are associated with the regulation of one’s fat storage. Leptin for example is an adipokine. Leptin is released from fat cells and hormonally signals the brain regarding food consumption and energy expenditure. When one’s body fat is in excess , oftentimes there is far too much leptin being released. This can cause leptin resistance, thereby altering normal signalling to the brain. The result causes a vicious cycle which does nothing to improve fat loss. Peptide supplementation has been known to assist those looking to lose weight.
