When we eat carbs/sugars:
- Your blood sugar level increases
- The pancreas senses the rise in blood sugar and releases insulin
- This insulin triggers the transport of glucose into cells, especially muscle and liver cells
- We have small sugar stores, so any excess is easily converted to fat, mainly by the liver, and then transported to the fat cells for storage
The body prefers to use fat as fuel for activity. However, with constantly full sugar stores, it tends to use this before using the stored fat. On a relative carbohydrate dominant diet, where the sugar stores are regularly refilled and overfilled, we store fat easily but have trouble burning the fat stores.
What happens when we add Peptides?
Some peptides stimulate your pituitary gland to naturally release more Human Growth Hormone (HGH), while another consists of the end of the HGH molecule. These peptides have been found to inhibit glucose burning and promote fat burning.
As a result, your body burns fat for energy immediately! Normally, a person’s body will seek to use their glucose energy reserves before seeking energy from fat reserves. By using peptides, your body is forced to seek energy from your fat reserves immediately, resulting in fat loss!
Energy is required for all aspects of living and because peptides force your body to burn fat for energy, you lose fat when:
- You are working
- Even sleeping!
- Heightened energy levels
- Faster metabolism
- Increased muscle cell production
- Increased strength
Peptides have the potential to inhibit glucose and fat storage in our fat cells and promotes fat promote therefore we burn fat performing everyday tasks… even while sleeping. It is important to remember that if you are already seeing an increase in unhealthy belly fat (visceral fat) you must make the necessary modifications to your diet and lifestyle sooner than later. Belly fat is oftentimes a precursor to chronic disease.
