More and more people struggle to keep themselves healthy and their weight under control. This time we will address the role of proteins that are an important part of fatty acid and glucose metabolism. It is important for everyone to understand the importance of proteins and other aspects that lead to weight gain. Other health problems are more serious.

There are numerous studies about the breakdown of fatty acids and other aspects, but there are still a lot of questions that require answers. One of the studies evaluated “if changes in the levels of proteins involved in adipocyte glucose and fatty acid metabolism as indicators for energy deficiency are related to adaptations in energy expenditure during weight loss.”[1] In the research participated men and women who had a very low energy diet for eight weeks. Researchers estimated such aspects as protein levels of fatty acid binding protein 4 (FABP4), fructose-bisphosphate aldolase C (AldoC), short chain 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase (HADHsc) (adipose tissue biopsy, western blot), TEE (doubly labeled water), REE (ventilated hood), and AEE. The results showed coloration between decreased AldoC and in TEE as well as decrease change in AEE as well as increased HADHsc and decreased in REE.

Adipose tissue definition

The adipose tissue is a tissue that is very important for energy storing and releasing. Adipose tissue function is also connected to metabolism as reduced metabolism of long chain fatty acids is one of the links to obesity (read more about obesity and metabolism).

Changes in the adipose cells for weight loss:

  • Lipid metabolism
  • Carbohydrate metabolism
  • Energy metabolism

Energy restriction requires more mitochondrial fatty and oxidation to maintain blood glucose levels and supply tissues that need glucose for energy (the brain, red blood cells). Many results also show that there might not be a significant change of weight with different physical activity. The whole process is more complex than that as fatty acid metabolism pathway consists of different participants.

Metabolic changes that occur during starvation is also not a healthy solution. The body might start not to burn fat but muscle not even mentioning the decreased immune system function. With weight loss, there is a positive correlation between change in AldoC and AEE. Thus, proteins that were involved in glucose and fatty acid metabolism had adaptations in the adipose tissue with a link to energy expenditure. There are changes in the physical level and molecular metabolism of fat cells. Adipose tissue is an important aspect for people who have problems with weight. A negative energy balance is one of the reasons for these problems. Simply taking supplements like Balance Cellular Phytonutrient Protein won’t help but with the right help, they might also be beneficial to get back on the track. Consult a specialist first.
