Here at Julian Bakery we are dedicated to helping people reduce carbohydrates, eat healthy, and as a result see a decrease in fat storage.
In today’s post we will discuss a very important hormone that single-handedly plays a major role in burning fat: estrogen.
As you may know, your body works on clusters of very precise cycles, called metabolic pathways. All of these pathways work together using proteins, chemicals, enzymes, and byproducts from each other to contribute to what shape your body takes on. Within these particular pathways, one of the important chemicals that we use are hormones.
Hormones are like the bullhorn of your body, amplifying signals sent from certain organs to direct your proteins. Certain hormones regulate weight, metabolism, and muscle mass.
When most people hear the word ‘estrogen’ they think female sexual function and reproduction. Research has found a two-way relationship between estrogens and fat storage. Estrogens increase fat-storage levels, and in turn the synthesized fat releases a signal to the body to produce even more estrogen. Estrogen also prevents healthy muscle growth through an enzyme called aromatase, which converts fat preventative testosterones to estrogen. On the julian bakery blog: a look into fat series, we discuss how to prevent this harmful conversion, so be sure to check that article out.
Estrogenic compounds have been found in fertilizers, pesticides, plastics, soy isoflavones, certain herbs, and petroleum products. There are multiple ways to avoid and decrease high estrogen levels. Staying away from refined foods, sticking to organic foods, eating lots of cruciferous vegetables, and exercising are good preventative practices. Flushing away excess estrogen can be done by increasing fiber intake, as well as an occasional liver-cleanse to eliminate stored estrogen in the liver.
Julian Bakery carries a number of supplements to help your battle with estrogen: Indole-3 aids in decreasing estrogen levels if you don’t eat enough vegetables, and adrenal complex prevents fatigued adrenals from overproducing estrogen as you age.
Knowing how fat-burning pathways work allows us to fight fats on multiple fronts. It is important to educate yourself on these processes and dieting methods before adjusting your diet or taking on an exercise plan. This knowledge will save you time and money.
