An exciting new animal study has found that the hormone oxytocin could be a potential breakthrough weight loss treatment
Weight loss is one of the most challenging issues for many people. There are so many suggested weight loss formulas and diets, that it is not surprising people become confused over the subject.
Oxytocin, a reproductive hormone, has been found to regulate food intake and energy metabolism, according to the study, which was presented at the Endocrine Society’s 94th Annual Meeting on June 24, 2012, in Houston. The study’s leaders presented how oxytocin helps initiate uterus contractions in women, and stimulates the milk-producing glands during childbirth. Previous research by the same medical team had also found a link between oxytocin and the body’s control over energy intake and use.
