Glucagon Hormone for Weight Loss – How Does It Work?

Glucagon is a hormone produced by the pancreas. It plays a critical role in the regulation of glucose and fats in the body. Let’s understand why this hormone is so important for weight loss.

Why is glucagon important?

Glucagon maintains the blood glucose levels. It is released by the body as a response to low blood glucose levels, in situations when the body requires more glucose, such as when you’ve been through an intense physical activity. 

It also stimulates the liver and breaks down glycogen. This is released into the bloodstream as glucose. It activates the process of gluconeogenesis, a process where amino acids are converted into glucose.

Glucagon also breaks down stored fat, also called as triglycerides and converts them into fatty acids, which is used by the body as fuel for energy production in the cells.

What role does it play in weight loss?

If you want the body to burn fat even when you are not exercising, the blood glucose and insulin levels should be low. Glucagon, as said earlier regulates glucose levels in the blood.

Glucagon levels in the body rise and fall depending on what we eat. When we have too many carbohydrates, glucagon levels in the blood go down, to prevent the blood glucose levels from increasing beyond a point.

That’s why, to burn fat faster, it is essential to increase glucagon levels in the body. That’s how it plays such a critical role in weight loss.

How to increase glucagon levels in the body naturally?

The way to increase glucagon levels in the body is to reduce the amount of carbohydrates you take and have foods that are low in glycemic index.

This means having more protein-based foods such as whey protein, pastured eggs and poultry, beef and lamb (grass-fed), wild-caught seafood such as wild salmon, sardines and mackerel and game meats such as rabbit, bison and elk.
