Having an appetite is more than being hungry!
Hormones that are produced in the gut have a major influence on our brain that stimulates the feeling of hunger and fullness.
These hormones have major actions involved in our appetite, including:
- Delaying gastric emptying
- Gastric motility
- Central nervous system effect
- Glucose-dependent insulin release
- Producing glucose
- Gall bladder contraction
- Pancreatic enzyme production
- Balancing blood sugar
- Growth hormone release
For these actions to properly occur, we need a healthy gut. A healthy gut starts with a healthy bacteria balance and a strong gut lining.
Need gut health support?
Begin by eliminating any gut disruptors and toxins and begin including probiotics, enzymes, and other digestive aids to support overall digestion.
We recommend beginning with the Boost kit, linked in our bio.
