Did you know that our bones act as appetite-mediators?
Yes, we have heard that eating dairy and calcium seems to help weight-loss, but why is that exactly?
Well part of the reason is now clear: our bones send messengers that cross the blood-brain barrier to let the brain know that sufficient nutrients have been absorbed to keep the bone-building process going.
We used to think that only our fat cells were in charge of that task, but it is now clear that our bones produce 10 times more of this appetite-curbing hormone!
Low bone-density = Increased hunger cravings + Weight gain
