So what if there was a way to move it from a necessity filled with equipment and time to something popped in the mouth? What if a person could theoretically consume exercise? A new study from Stanford University has brought the world one step closer to that reality. Publishing their results in the journal Nature, researchers from the United States have discovered the molecule behind exercise’s link to hunger.Their original intentions were to find out why exercise makes someone hungry.During the course of their investigation, they discovered the molecule, known as Lac-Phe, is produced during exercise.It is this molecule that contributes to reducing obesity and food intake.

Scientists identify molecule that could help drugs replace workouts

Scientists identify molecule that could help drugs replace workouts – The Independent

Scientists identify molecule that could help drugs replace workouts.  Findings in mice shed more light on physiological processes involved in exercise and hunger. Scientists have identified a molecule in mice that they say reduces food intake and obesity, an advance that may one day provide some of the benefits of exercise in the form of a pill. In the research, scientists, including those from Baylor College of Medicine in the US, conducted comprehensive analyses of blood plasma compounds from mice following intense treadmill running. Scientists identify molecule that could help drugs replace workouts in a study.  The study, published in the journal Nature last week, found that a modified amino acid called Lac-Phe was the most significantly induced molecule in mice following the exercise. “Regular exercise has been proven to help weight loss, regulate appetite and improve the metabolic profile, especially for people who are overweight and obese,” Yong Xu, study co-author and professor of pediatrics- nutrition and molecular and cellular biology at Baylor, said in a statement. “If we can understand the mechanism by which exercise triggers these benefits, then we are closer to helping many people improve their health,” Dr Xu said. The Lac-Phe molecule, scientists say, is…
