If losing weight has become some kind of struggle for you and you think the diet or the work out is not yielding the wanted results, then the hormone – leptin may be what you really need to handle immediately.Leptin is the hormone that is secreted by the cells and its general function is to balance the body weight and the energy levels. There are 2 ways the leptin is performing its function. The first one is by signaling the brain when we eat and the second one is to stimulate the fatty tissue to burn the energy.
The body is releasing more and more leptin in the blood stream as you are growing fatter in order to make a balance, and to stimulate the fatty tissue in order to burn the excess fat. However, there are cases when leptin is malfunctioning. More accurately, many overweight people developed leptin resistance in their bodies.
