Ghrelin is known as hunger hormone that activates your concentrated food yearnings, particularly for the food having high calories. You might be trying to diet but could not defy the alarm bell of the birthday cake of the office. But in new research it is proposed that it might be possible to develop a pill to block ghrelin.
An endocrinologist, Dr. Tony Goldstone at Imperial College London and the study author of the study explained that it elevated the likelihood that drugs which blocked the action of ghrelin hormone might help reduce craving for high-calorie food and helped people to lose weight.
The latest study also proposes that due to ghrelin a person who hops breakfast and finds high calorie food more alluring than low calorie foods. In a study trail two groups of eighteen males and females were shown the pictures of both type of foods on three consecutive mornings and asked to rate them.
The results of the study trail showed that the group which did not eat the breakfast and was injected with ghrelin had a grave yearning for the bad materials like cake, pizza and chocolate. Ghrelin hormone imitated speedy favoritism food plea toward high calorie foods, told Goldstone in a statement.
He further explained that changes in foods which you prefer to eat when missing meal might be elucidated by changes in the levels of ghrelin in your blood to regulate your overall calorie intake. Many drug companies are trying hard to develop a pill that could go nose to nose against the hunger hormone.
