Hormone Leptin plays a critical role in regulation of our body weight. It is naturally produced by fat in our body, but supplements are flooding the market and some people now question how beneficial they are. This is primarily because of some of the claims that manufacturers make, specifically the appetite decrease which should enable us to get to the desired weight with less issues. These claims have been refuted by some scientists, and scientific evidence that would fully support the claim does not exist.
- One of the hormones that helps us regulate weight is Leptin.
- The more leptin that you have, does not mean you will burn more weight.
- If you are sensitive to leptin, supplements may help, but the research is lacking.
