What is..?

What is..? (2)

The section "Wat is..?" should be a place of reference to topics and measures discussed in the other categories. Just more elaborate and complete, so that we are all on the same page in understanding what I am writing about.

What is...Leptin?

How Your Hunger-Satiety System Affects Your Physical Shape
Your hunger-satiety system consists of multiple neuro-peptides that act to initiate or terminate your food intake. These are your hunger-satiety hormones. Their signals are integrated by centers in your brain to modulate how you consume, spend or store energy. The balance between these signals dictates whether your body is in a fat-burning or a fat-storing mode.
In order to maintain a healthy body weight, your hunger and satiety signals must continually adjust your food feeding quantities to your energy expenditure. Any imbalance between these two will affect your fat stores and physical shape.  The consequence of obesity, obviously is the result of a energy balance, gone astray, in which a surplus of accumulated food energy is stored as body fat.
The most important and well-known satiety hormones are insulin and leptin, but there are several others. In respect of hunger hormones, reported first in 1999,  ghrelin has also drawn attention in recent years.  Surely over the course of the next few years a lot of attention will be paid on important hormones and their impact on your health. Like it or not, those little things govern and rule the rest of our body (mainly) from our brain. It is really not your genes or DNA which simply are there and are rather "stable and immovable" except for some methylation processes as described in the preceding article "Epigenetics".

What is... Epigenetics?

In the article "Genetic- vs Lifestyle Disorders" I already covered the Human Genome Project in quite some detail and concluded that, to the surprise of the scientific community, the aberrant genes causing the serious disorders of mankind simply do not exist and that slowly but surely, evidence is emerging that epigenetic changes can alter the way genes are activated or silenced. This knowledge that one can influence one´s own genome is extremely important, since a person can take charge of his mental- and physical health to a substantial degree and is the basic reason why I am writing all these words on this page.
