Constantly hungry or hungry?

Everyone knows it. There are days when you hardly have an appetite and then there are days when you could eat nonstop even though it is completely clear to you that you have actually eaten enough.

A whole range of hormones and hormone-like peptides are responsible for our feelings of hunger and satiety. Big players are insulin and leptin, but we can also influence others.

For example:

Glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1)

GLP-1 is a peptide produced in the lower digestive tract and brain that leads to slower emptying of the stomach and a longer feeling of fullness.

Various studies on humans showed an opposite effect to ghrelin. Fatty and energy-rich food suddenly appears far less attractive under the influence of GLP-1.

GLP-1 is now available in various preparations as medication and, in cases of severe obesity, actually leads to a weight loss of an average of 4.5kg. The problem, however, is that this effect is not sustainable, as there is no influence on existing insulin resistance and GLP-1 actually stimulates the pancreas to secrete even more insulin, which is why the drug is also used in diabetes.

If it is stopped again, the kilos will come back and the loss will not be big enough to achieve an actual improvement in health. Some plant substances, such as substances from bitter oranges, stimulate the release of GLP-1 and can therefore be helpful in not feeling hungry on an energy-restricted diet and in developing less appetite for counterproductive foods.

Substances that dock onto the GLP-1 receptor in the body, such as bitter orange, can also be helpful. In the IN-SHAPE from QIDOSHA, bitter orange is cleverly combined with other stabilizing substances. It can be a helpful supplement both during an energy-reduced phase and especially afterwards.

The L-carnitine is a carrier for the fats from food (after beta-oxidation) into the mitochondria and the Coenzyme Q10, which is also contained, is important as part of the respiratory chain the mitochondria. As a result, ATP production (cell energy) can be strengthened.
