Mighty Mitochondria and AMPK, can cause you to slim down.

"Mighty Mitochondria and AMPK" may appear tiny but are not so tiny, as it is scattered all over your body and is responsible for regulating your energy and affects your personality.

The recent research suggests the very tiny known Enzyme which responsible for your energy level can actually is that can promote weight loss and longevity of yours.

Work on to activate, "Mighty Mitochondria and AMPK" if you want to live longer and look lean, you have to work on triggering these enzymes to work more. When you eating a healthful diet and exercising the right way, these tiny bundle activates & they promote weight loss, optimal health and longevity.

How one can activate these little KNOW ENZYME, AMPK (Adenosine Monophosphate-Activated Protein Kinase)

AMPK, which is constituent of every cell in our body and perform the function of regulating switch for our metabolic molecule that plays a role in cellular energy homeostasis, largely to activate glucose and fatty acid uptake and oxidation when cellular energy is low and plays a major role in determining our body fat composition.

Degradation in our health is proportional to the degradation in cell energy level. Cells do not make or store fats when AMPK is activated but only utilise stored fat. AMPK determines our body fat composition, optimal health and how long one will live. With the activation of AMPK the cells activate and go empty with the stored fat, triggering weight loss, longevity and optimal health.

When our cells lose energy, the cell degrades and so does our health. AMPK determines body fat composition, optimal health and how long you’ll live. When AMPK is activated, cells do not make or store fat, burning-up only stored fat. Our cells are less toxic, healthier and live longer when AMPK gets re-activated. When the garbage can (our cell) is emptied of junk, optimal health, longevity and weight loss can occur.

AMPK spikes the production of mitochondria the powerhouse, propagating the insulin sensitivity also Mitochondria are crucial to our optimal health and longevity. We age when the mighty mitochondria losses its capability to power up. Mitochondria supply almost 90% of energy to us by converting food that we eat and the air that we breathe. Promotion of mitochondrial function, protecting us from heart disease and cancer, as well as a reduction of inflammation.

Excessive food intake and poor nutritional food decline the functioning of AMPK, reducing the metabolic activities which are the outcome of metabolic debris within our cells. The AMPK activity diminishes and hence our health resulting in weight gain, degenerative conditions, diabetes and a shortened life.

Active AMPK builds our health and belly fat decreases due to increased fat burning. There are certain diet strategies and food components that highly influence the AMPK activity and finally reducing weight.

Signs of AMPK Deficiency:

Difficulty Losing Weight

Increased Belly Fat

Elevated Blood Glucose

Insulin Resistance

High Total Cholesterol and Triglyceride Levels.

Decrease in Mitochondrial Function

Natural Nutrients That Activate AMPK.

Resveratrol – This antioxidant activates Sirt1 but AMPK activates it more directly.

Alpha Lipoic Acid – can activate AMPK in tissues, particularly muscle tissue.

EGCG plant phytochemical from green tea.

Curcumin the active component in the spice turmeric.

Fish Oil – the EPA and DHA in fish oil activate AMPK.

Quercetin – found in many plants including fruits, vegetables and grains, increases AMPK in fat, muscle and liver.

Vegetables, fruits like apple, oat, nuts and beans are also excellent sources of water-soluble, viscous fibre.

Fasting of any type also effectively increase AMPK, improve cardiac risk factors, protect against cancer, improve insulin sensitivity and longevity.

Involving brisk and interval training exercises also help to spike AMPK.
