Adiponectin is a hormone. Adipo comes from the word adipose,
meaning fat tissues of animals.
Adiponectin, like leptin, is a hormone found in fat cells. Here
is a short list of what adiponectin does:
- helps increase insulin sensitivity
- enhances muscle tissues’ ability to use carbohydrates for
- tells your body to burn fat for energy, instead of
- helps increase and improve the rate by which your body
breaks down fat for energy
- fights inflammation
- helps prevent diabetes
- helps prevent heart disease
- decreases and prevents hypertension (high blood pressure)
- helps prevent cancer
- suppresses your appetite
Adiponectin, like leptin, is found in fat tissues.
Now for the irony: the more fat you’ve accumulated, the less
adiponectin circulates through your blood stream.
When you start to lose weight, adiponectin begins to flow. The
thinner you get the greater your adiponectin levels in your
bloodstream. But the more fat you have, the less is secreted to
circulate throughout your body.
So, in other words, adiponectin is like a cop, in that, when you
need one, there’s never one around.
Now that you know this, I’m going to tell you how to release MORE
adiponectin, lower your inflammation, decrease your appetite, and
burn more fat.
You knew there was a catch.
Yes, just exercise. Walk, bike, play badminton, go bowling,
bounce on your re-bounder.
As the doctor said: You’ve got 23 and a
half hours in the day to rest, sleep, sit. How about just one half
hour moving about?
Piper betle is an Ayurvedic shrub with over a thousand years of
use in India. It supports respiratory and digestive health, but it
also regulates blood sugar.
Dolichos biflorus comes from a seed and has been used as a home
remedy for urinary tract infections. It also benefits lipid (fat)
levels in our blood.
Some guy who wanted to make a million dollars put these two
herbs together and discovered that they helped people not just double
their weight loss, but slightly more than double their weight loss. On the web, you’ll find people pitching this
product under a whole bunch of different names at some outrageous
Again, we've found the cheapest version at Swanson Vitamins.
It’s called Lowat™.
This combination inhibits fat accumulation and potentiates its
breakdown, and sure enough, adiponectin has a lot to do with all
Studies of Lowat™ showed a “significant increase in serum adiponectin
concentration and significant decrease in serum ghrelin
concentration . . . .”
Adiponectin tells you you’re full, and ghrelin tells you you’re
hungry. So you can see how this supplement can help people to lose
weight. Just don’t fall for some wild sales pitch about how you can
lose weight eating your favorite foods and doing nothing; not when you can find it

And here is a surprise: many of you have probably read about
Ginkgo Biloba, something touted for boosting mental clarity, memory
and protecting against cancer. We've published here that it is also
a blood thinner, thus protecting us from cardiovascular problems.
But researchers in Korea decided to check even further into what it
could do for the heart, and they took a bunch of fat rats with
metabolic syndrome (insulin-resistant) and fed them ginkgo and
checked for the usual things (cell death & injuries to the arteries)
but found something quite significant. The rats' levels of
adiponectin had been significantly boosted. So now, we have one
supplement that is good for both your brain and your heart. [Clean

Atkins was wrong. Sure, a lot of people lost weight on his low
carb diet, but they
also trimmed a few years off their lives. Our bodies need
carbohydrates. We don’t need chips and pretzels and breads and baked
potatoes smothered in sour cream. But we need fruits and vegetables
for their health benefits and protection.
Some carbohydrates are better than others and now you’re going
to learn about some of the best carbohydrates; the ones containing anthocyanins.
The word anthocyanins is Greek. It literally means a “dark blue
flower” but for us, anthocyanins are pigments (one of the pigments)
that make our fruits and vegetables blue, purple, and red. They are
also powerful phytochemicals that “have demonstrated ability to
protect against a myriad of human diseases . . . .” [PMC]
Anthocyanins also increase the amount of adiponectin coursing
through your bloodstream.
Here is a list of fruits and vegetables containing anthocyanins:
apples, blackberries, blueberries, chockberry/chokecherry,
elderberries, red and black currant, gooseberry, grapes (red and
blue), nectarines, peaches, plums, raspberries, strawberries,
beans, small red beans, red cabbage, red peppers, eggplant, red
lettuce, red onions, red radishes, pistachio nuts, and pomegranates.
Black raspberries contain the most anthocyanins, with blueberries
coming in a close second. But you’ll never guess number three.
Red Cabbage comes in third when we’re talking anthocyanins. Every
salad you make should have some red cabbage in it. If you make our
very tasty coleslaw, make sure you use a head of red cabbage.
So, there you have it: Three wonderful (pretty easy) ways to increase your fat
burning, stop the inflammation, and make your body feel full faster.
But just in case, I’m going to leave you with an advertisement
for Cardia-7 (click to read
about it), because I do believe that everyone over fifty should
be taking Cardia-7 daily to stop inflammation and keep those pipes clean.
Cardia-7 is purified monounsaturated fatty acid on steroids. There
is nothing like it, anywhere. And studies have shown that Cardia-7,
while cutting your C-Reactive Protein in half, turns on fat burning
metabolism while increasing expression of adiponectin [http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3155149/].

my favorites list. I don't go a day without it.)
