This protein was been portrayed as the way
to a cure for obesity. Leptin was first described as an apiodocyte
- derived signaling factor, which, after interaction with its
receptors, induced a complex response, including control of bodyweight
and energy expenditure. It could be quite a fat burner. Research
shows that people who used high doses of leptin for six months
lost weight, most of it body fat.
One of the three branched chain amino acids.
They are called BCAA's because they structurally branch off another
chain of atoms instead of forming a line. Studies have shown that
BCAA's help to stimulate protein synthesis and inhibit its breakdown,
so BCAA's have powerful anabolic and anticatabolic effects on
the body. They may also potentiate the release of some anabolic
hormones, such as growth hormone.
Regular ingestion of BCAA's help to keep the
body in a state of postive nitrogen balance. In this state, your
body much more readily builds muscle and burns fat. Studies have
shown that athletes taking extra BCAA's have shown a loss of more
bodyfat than those not taking BCAA's.
Leucine appears to be the most important BCAA
for athletes, as it can affect various anabolic hormones, and
have an effect on preventing protein degradation. HMB is a metabolite
of Leucine. Some experts have suggested that if you do not have
Leucine in your body, you will not have muscle growth.
An essential fatty acid (EFA) that your body
cannot make itself. It is found in polyunsaturated oils such as
safflower, sunflower, walnut oil, etc. This is considered a type
of 'good' fat. You need approxiamately 2% of your daily calories
Substances that prevent or curtail the buildup
of fat in the liver, such as B-fatty acids and methionine.
