Fat Loss Peptides
Our western lifestyle has resulted in a 24 hr availability of high calorie foods.
We drive through in haste, consume on the run and time constraints make physical activity a luxury.
Obesity, or excess body fat stores, causes physical wear and tear on the weight-bearing joints (especially knees and hips), and inflammatory degeneration of all tissues of the body. Overfat fat storage cells (adipocytes) release molecules (inflammatory cytokines) that damage all tissues leading to premature ageing. As we age, this stored fat has such a grip on our bodies that no matter how hard we workout, and how healthy we eat, we cannot keep up with the body and its fitness requirements. We begin to feel unmotivated, not seeing results fast enough and feel cheated by our efforts to drop the pounds. Not only that, subjecting our bodies continuously to fad diets and potentially starving ourselves for quick results, fails us again viaÂ metabolic shifts and increased fat stores.
Another way GH helps with fat loss is that it maintains blood glucose levels by inhibiting glucose uptake into peripheral cells, decreasing glucose oxidation for energy in the cells, and therefore increasing glucose production in cells from fat and amino acids (gluconeogenesis) (Copeland 1994, Ho 1996). The free fatty acids in the blood from lipolysis also partially block the insulin receptors on cell membranes, decreasing the effectiveness of insulin in triggering the removal of glucose from the blood, causing insulin resistance, or decreased insulin sensitivity. These all result in fat loss, especially from hard to move intra-abdominal fat stores (Johannsson 1997).
