Hunger Keeps You Young
An antiaging hormone called Ghrelin was discovered in 1999 in Japan and is effective to keep not only a youthful look but also youthful internal organs such as the heart, the blood vessel or the kidney.
What is aging?
Our body is formed of about 60 trillion cells. We can move our body and live every day with the energy each cell produces using oxygen delivered to them. But with aging, 60 trillion cells can’t use the oxygen efficiently and the energy produced by the cells decreases. That makes difficult to move the body. This is aging.
But if you can secrete antiaging hormone, ghrelin sufficiently, your 60 trillion cells can mass produce energy using oxygen.
When you are hungry, your stomach growls. This noise is caused by the function of ghrelin. Therefore, when your stomach is growling, a lot of ghrelin is secreted.
Ghrelin is a hormone which is secreted from the stomach when a person starts feeling hungry. When hunger reaches the peak, a lot of ghrelin is secreted and stimulates the stomach, making noise.
To secrete a lot of ghrelin, it is important to take meals when you are as hungry as your stomach growls.
The influence of ghrelin to aging was experimented.
When aging is progressed, the amount of waste matter in the cell increases.
Normal: 1-3 ng/ml
A 64 years old female who always feels tired: 7.53 ng/ml
This means that her cells’ aging is progressed.
Her usual dietary life was 3 meals and 2 snacks between breakfast and lunch and 2 snacks between lunch and dinner.
She stopped eating 4 snacks between meals for 2 days.
The first day she didn’t have growling noise but the amount of waste matter decreased to 4.43 ng/ml.
The second day she had growling noise before lunch and dinner and the amount of waste matter decreased to 2.93 ng/ml which is within normal range.
Let’s get as hungry as your stomach growls before meals and stay young!
