Toxins and Appetite

Did you know that toxins can increase your appetite?

In fact, toxins can actually make you overeat and feel hungry when you’re satiated.

Toxins come from the air you breathe, food you eat and water you drink. They can also come from the lotion, soaps and the cleaners you use.

Toxins Are Everywhere


When toxins enter your body your liver goes to work to get them out.

However, if the liver is overloaded then the body will protect itself by wrapping fat around the toxin to get it out of the blood stream.

Yes, your fat could be filled with toxins!

Toxins in your body will affect many of your bodily systems and in particular one of the most important hormones responsible for appetite control… Leptin! 

Leptin is the hormone that controls appetite.

After you’ve eaten a certain amount, leptin is released which tells your brain you are no longer hungry but too many toxins in your body will affect this hormone.

According to Dr. Mark Hyman, in his article, Systems Biology, Toxins, Obesity, and Functional Medicine, writes…

 Leptin’s inhibitory effect on appetite is impaired by toxins, leading to leptin resistance and increased hunger. 

If the hormone that tells your body you are full is not running optimally, you will overeat and store more fat!

The best thing to do is detox your liver and give it the support it needs to be able to do its job of releasing toxins from your body!
