There must be a reason why all the famous “‘Doctors”‘ around the world talk about the role of ghrelin on weight loss.
Dr.oz and Dr.Mercola to name a few as well as major health websites like webmd.
I delved deeper and deeper in my own personal research about what the ghrelin hormone actually is, and what it can and will actually do; and what I found astounded me in ways I never thought another seemingly “fake pill” could ever have done.
Now, before you go and close this window, or open another tab and just forget about this, “another generic piece of content on the internet”, hear me out, and check out what I’ve found regarding not only what ghrelin is and what it can and will do; but also, what this ghrelin blocker supplement is all about.
What Is Ghrelin; What Does It Do?
First off, what in the world is ghrelin? And no, before you go making that joke I’m pretty sure you’re thinking of right now, it is not those little green goblin lookalikes which multiply in number when they get soaked with water; although water is somewhat related to ghrelin.
Ghrelin is a type of peptide (this is just a bunch of amino acid monomers (a fancy term for molecules) chained together by peptide bonds, also known as amide bonds, which again is just essentially another fancy term for covalent chemical bonds; ghrelin is a peptide of 28 amino acids chained together) and growth hormone.
Ghrelin is a particular kind of peptide and hormone, and it is primarily released by your stomach, and is essentially the reason why you store food in your body and the one to blame for your food intake.
It essentially is a hunger-stimulating hormone. Oh, and by the way, you need not even look this info up at Wikipedia. All of these information and details are simply taken off from the dictionary, so it’s a sure bet that this is fact.
Now, you may already be forming your own conclusions—based on the information you’ve already read about ghrelin directly above—as to how this ghrelin supplement works. However, I assure you that you are only halfway into towards the right direction regarding your almost-complete conclusion.
You see, ghrelin may be the hormone which is ultimately responsible for the body’s food storage functions and food-initiating stimulations, and you may be thinking,
“What need do I actually have for a hormone specifically dedicated to stimulating my hunger? Can’t it just be eliminated all together, completely?” However, it does not work by itself. With it comes a balancing hormone, which literally balances out ghrelin and its functions—leptin.
What Is Leptin; What Does It Do?
You’ve already found out about the very basics of ghrelin, and what it primarily is. Now, what about leptin? What in the world is this? Well, it is, in its most basic form, much like ghrelin. This leptin is a peptide and hormone as well, exactly like what ghrelin is.
However, as soon as this is where it, and ghrelin start their similarities with one another, this is also where both their similarities end. Where ghrelin is an amino acid peptide, leptin, on the other hand, is a protein peptide and hormone (again, this information is simply taken off from a dictionary; it is as basic as finding out what the definition of this word is).
However, this dissimilarity between ghrelin and leptin is only a supplementary difference, only accompanying the most fundamental differentiating factor between these two types of peptides and hormones. The main differentiating element between these two lies within their primary purposes within your body.
Where ghrelin functions as the primary hunger-stimulator for your body, leptin actually functions as the balancing agent, in which its primary task is to regulate energy ingestion and outflow.
It balances the body’s overall control of energy, which primarily comes from, what, exactly? That’s right; it comes from the intake of food. So basically, what all of this just means, is that this particular peptide and hormone, as opposed to ghrelin, is actually responsible for suppressing hunger, instead of stimulating it.
A lot of studies all around the world, just like this one particular research done by 3 various medical experts (Drent ML, Klok MD, and Jakobsdottir S) from the Department of Endocrinology from the Medical Center of VU University in Amsterdam, The Netherlands (you can check out the abstract of the research by simply clicking this, states that leptin is directly responsible for the regulation of long-term energy expenditure.
It suppresses the body’s urge to take in more food for more energy; since it lets the body regulate the overall energy it has previously taken in from the previous foods it has ingested.
Regulation of energy means less energy required by the body; means less energy taken in; means less food eaten; and less food eaten, means that, yes: less factors for weight gain. Ergo: leptin helps in overall weight loss.
The same study, along with supplementary sources—such as a highly informative website which focuses primarily on hormones—also reiterate that ghrelin and leptin, are actually peptides and hormones which ultimately balance each other out. These sources also state that although ghrelin and its balancing hormone were discovered years apart, they have already been working in tandem, balancing each other out, way before they were even identified, even when only one of them was identified and discovered first.
Believe it or not, it was actually leptin which was discovered and identified first (around 1994); and it was not only until half a decade later (around 1999), when ghrelin was later discovered and identified (this brings about an interesting side-note, since even though they work in tandem, and balance each other out, they are actually not easily detectable as balancing hormones for one another; if they were, they both would’ve been discovered and identified at the same time).
How to Decrease Ghrelin Levels
So, you want to know how to reduce ghrelin levels, the quick, simple, painless (and not to mention, side-effect-less) way? That’s right, with this supplement. Think of this particular hormone blocking supplement as a sort of fast-acting agent, which literally takes away those hormones—especially ghrelin—responsible for making you hungry.
While it’s doing that, though, it also maximizes those other hormones—such as leptin—which help the body regulate energy, burn fat, and lose weight overall. That may seem like a lot to take in, or to even believe. A fast-acting agent which literally makes you not eat a lot? Again, the question in which this boils down to, is how. This supplement can easily answer that by presenting its credentials, in the form of its ingredients.
Why would you even want to reduce your ghrelin levels? Isn’t that what leptin is for? Isn’t that why it exists in our bodies?
Isn’t its main function to balance out the effects which ghrelin produces? Sure, yes, it’s true that leptin does balance out ghrelin, and it is there to be the counteragent against too much ghrelin levels.
However, just as other parts and components of the body work in a natural, so does this particular balancing peptide and hormone.
Although it does neutralize ghrelin and its potentially excess or overindulging levels, leptin only does so naturally, and therefore slowly (albeit surely). Sometimes, you just want to lose that weight right away. However, most of the time, you actually need to lose that unnecessary weight—posthaste.
Yes, yes, though whatever I just said above only proves why you need to reduce ghrelin levels, it still doesn’t say how. So how in the world do you reduce ghrelin levels? Ah, dear reader(s), this is exactly where a ghrelin blocker comes in.
A patented ingredient made out of a mixture of extracts from the seeds of a plant called Dolichos Biflorus (a type of twining herb; very healthy), and extracts straight from the leaves of a plant (essentially a vine) called the Piper betle, or simply, Betel.
It’s utterly astounding just how leading medical and food scientists found a way to combine the specific extracts of these two plants and exactly measure a perfect dosage (about 900 milligrams in total per day) to be able to both get rid of excess ghrelin levels, and boost adiponectin (a type of protein, unlike ghrelin, leptin, or even one more hormone which this supplement as a whole targets, cortisol (more on this later) essentially responsible for controlling the levels of glucose within the body, and more importantly, the breakdown of fatty acids and fat all together) levels at the same time.
Controlling hunger and boosting the breakdown of fat at the same time? How in the world can possibly not lose weight from something like that? This ghrelin-blocking supplement could’ve just stopped here, and it would’ve been enough for it to do its function and make our bodies lose weight, but no; this is only the first ingredient.
Another patented concentrated ingredient originating from extracts from the decaffeinated beans of the green coffee plant. The exact extracts taken from this particular plant were narrowed down to 50 percent of the total polyphenol content, 45 percent of the total chlorogenic acids, and about 10 percent of the class 5-caffeoylquinic acids of each of the beans. Scientists amalgamated all of that, and came up with the final 400 milligrams stuffed into the supplement itself, for a daily intake. What does this particular ingredient do, you ask? Why, it only blocks additional, unnecessary sugars from being absorbed by the body. Once the body has enough energy from the sugar it has absorbed from the food intake, this ingredient kicks in and blocks the excess, unwanted sugars.
Concentrated extracts from the roots of the Rhodiola rosea (also known as the king’s crown, the orpin rose, the rose root, or simply, the golden root) originating all the way from Siberia.
Now this particular ingredient is a special one, not only because it was extracted from a plant that originates all the way from Siberia, but because what this particular concentrated, patented ingredient actually does, is lower stress levels, by means of lowering cortisol levels.
Cortisol is another kind of hormone in the body, this time, responsible, not for hunger stimulation, fat breakdown, or energy regulation. Rather, it is actually responsible for the amount of stress your body suffers from.
When your body’s stress levels reach a certain level, extra cortisol is released, and actually does something strange to your body, and makes it store fat (particularly around the underbelly, or belly area) to compensate for the other parts of your body which the stress is eating away. The ingredient derived from the Rhodiola Rosea Root, lowers those cortisol levels, so even if you do get stressed, those cortisol hormones will not do anything.
Pepper (shocking and surprising in its simplicity, but true) All these ingredients have specific purposes and functions: all of them target specific hormones within the body which are responsible for its hunger-stimulation, its fat-burning, its fat-storage, and its overall energy regulation.
Would you believe, that the main purpose of this ingredient in this particular ghrelin-blocking supplement, is actually to maintain the weight loss you will have already achieved, after the 3 previous ingredients have done their jobs? Who’d have thought?
Despite their own, specific and detailed functions, however, all these four invaluable ingredients of this ghrelin-blocking supplement work in tandem with each other and complement each other to comprehensively end up with a powerful, progressive, and potent weight loss supplement
