Sad but true, the US has higher childhood obesity rates than 194 (out of a total of 197) other countries and is #12 for the highest numbers of obese adults. Women more than men are likely to become obese. For a nation where almost 75% of the population is overweight1, important news follows:
During their investigations, scientists discovered that boosting AMPK resulted in the desirable benefit of reducing abdominal fat2. While abdominal fat isn’t attractive, it’s dangerous and speeds aging by increasing inflammation. Deep abdominal fat morphs into its own endocrine organ, which is also a storage tank for toxins. This results in chronic inflammation, pain, and degenerative disorders including dementia, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, certain cancers, and potential bone and joint breakdowns.
While AMPK is essential for embryonic growth and development3, it plays a key role as a master regulator of cellular energy homeostasis. As we age, cellular AMPK activity decreases while weight gain degenerates into obesity. In addition to control of appetite, AMPK is a sensor of energy balance & nutrient status in the body.4
