Balancing our hormones as we age gets harder and harder. Trying to maintain our weight or even losing weight gets harder when you throw in hormonal imbalances.
One dynamic fat-burning duo – Leptin and Adiponectin – may be the culprit sabotaging your efforts. They actively control how your body makes, uses, and stores fat.
Adiponectin is an anti-inflammatory molecule that helps you burn more fat and also reduces inflammation and cholesterol build-up in the arteries.
Unfortunately, leptin is a pro-inflammatory molecule, which contributes to chronic inflammation in obesity. So when anti-inflammatory adiponectin is lower and pro-inflammatory leptin is higher, this helps to perpetuate chronic inflammation, which is a hallmark of obesity.
So what can you do?
Ways to increase your adiponectin levels:
- Omega 3: Include foods rich in monounsaturated fasts e.g avocados, nuts, olives, olive oil – into your daily diet.
- Fiber: also helps stabilize blood sugar levels
- Caffeine: organic coffee, or white or green tea
- Exercise: 30 mins of moderate exercise three times per week
I’m excited to have a plant-based tool that offers an additional way to not only increase adiponectin levels by 115% but also help balance leptin levels through clinically validated ingredients. Click here for more information.
If you feel like you’re fighting a losing battle sometimes, despite eating well and working out regularly, then this may be the missing piece for you.
