From our previous 2 articles discussed the two strategies to support healthy blood sugar – the Short Chain Fatty acids and Insulin Signaling Pathway, we can see how we can improve. What we use to think was from our genetics – we now know is mostly from our lifestyle and we can change this.
Today we will be discussing the most exciting new pathway – the AMPK Pathway.
- The SCFA Pathway
- Insulin Signaling Pathway
- AMPK Pathway
AMPK is an signaling enzyme that acts as our “fat switch”. It determines whether we burn calories to make energy or store them as fat. If we are not making energy we are making fat and damaging free radicals.
Our lifestyle choices such as exercise and fasting activate this AMPK switch. Another powerful boost to this fat burning switch are supplements such as resveratrol, Alpha Lipoic Acid, burdock root, rose hips,short chain fatty acids, and berberine, can activate this AMPK switch.
What are the other benefits of activating our AMPK switch:
- Reduces inflammation
- Reduces pain
- Improves energy
- Reduces Sugar Cravings
- Boosts fat burning and muscle building – key to successful weight loss
Below are a few of tissues and organs are impacted by this AMPK pathway.
It is really important to use professional grade supplements that actually work. It has been our experience that there are many inferior grade products on the market or products that have been stored in a warehouse for an undetermined amount of time. At Renovare, we carry only Pharmaceutical grade supplements.
Key Products we carry at Renovare that support the AMPK pathway:
