Belly Fat? Cortisol versus Oxytocin and Weight Loss

Weight gain is perhaps one of the most challenging health issues a person will ever have to face during their lifetime. Whether tackling the more serious condition of obesity, or just dealing with the more regular day to day issues of weight control, finding a solution to the issue is much debated among physicians, health professionals and of the public alike. Can oxytocin help with weight loss?

Oxytocin and weight lossThe fact is: weight gain is commonly associated with stress. When a person becomes stressed, the body reacts by releasing higher levels of the hormone, cortisol. Cortisol is an important hormone in our bodies, produced in the adrenal glands. It is essential to maintaining glucose metabolism, regulating blood pressure, keeping a healthy immune system and triggering an anti-inflammatory response. Stress typically secretes cortisol into the bloodstream, earning the hormone the common label of “the stress hormone,” meaning that it is present in the body at higher levels during the “fight or flight” response to stress. Increased levels of cortisol result in several defensive mechanisms during periods of stress, such as heightened memory, increased pain thresholds, increased immunity and increased short term energy levels.

August 21, 2012 Oxytocin and Weight Loss Comments Off

Ask anyone who has tried on that dress or those trousers only to find that they no longer fit and immediately they go on the defensive – “must have shrunk in the wash!” People simply don’t want to admit that they put weight on, that the increasing levels of sedentary occupations and hours in front of the TV are related to the lack of clothes that fit. Mind you the retail sector is rubbing its hands with glee – clothes that don’t fit mean more spent on new ones.

But is the culprit our own lack of self-control, does our desire for ‘feeling satisfied’ drive us to eat more? A paper published by The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) suggested that help may be more readily at hand than we first imagined – but don’t anticipate a miracle cure, like some gastric band without the discomfort! It seems that our bodies produce a hormone called oxytocin and that this naturally occurring substance can provide support in reducing our intake – it’s not, though, an appetite suppressant.
