Balance 3H+ — What’s the “3H” and How Does It Affect Your Hunger and Weight?
Hormones are the body’s chemical messengers, and they travel through the bloodstream, delivering messages to tissues and organs throughout the body. Leptin, ghrelin and cortisol are the three most common hormones involved in the regulation of weight and weight-related senses like hunger and satiety. They need to be balanced in order for effective weight loss to take place.
Leptin, which produced in fat cells, plays a significant role in the regulation of body weight. Through the effect that it has on the brain, leptin controls the feelings of hunger and satiety. Because it is secreted by adipose (fat) tissue, people who are overweight or obese tend to have higher levels of leptin, causing a vicious cycle that makes weight loss all but impossible.
Gherlin, also known as the “hunger hormone,” is produced by specialized cells that live in the lining of the stomach and the pancreas. When levels of ghrelin are high, the hormone works in conjunction with the brain to stimulate hunger, slow metabolism, and decrease the body’s ability to burn fat.
Cortisol is known as the “stress hormone.” It is produced in the adrenal glands in response to stress. When cortisol levels are high, the body will believe that it needs to store extra fat, making it impossible to lose weight. In this scenario, fat tends to accumulate in the abdominal region, which contains large quantities of cortisol receptors.
