Hormone from fat boosts metabolism in both exercise and cold. The article, Hormone from Fat Boosts Metabolism in Both Exercise and Cold, conveys information on a research conducted by Joslin Diabetes Center on individual’s valuable response to exercise. People respond differently to exercise routine and part of the reason is the hormone whose levels rise significantly during exercise and when exposed to cold.
The researchers studied a hormone called lipokines which is responsible for controlling fat. The researchers commenced their study by measuring the level of lipokines in twenty seven healthy male after exercise (Science Daily, 2018). Additionally, the level of the hormone was measured in twelve healthy young people male and women and the results reflected high level of lipokines.
The scientists also found out people who are more fit portrayed a greater resting level of the hormone (Science Daily, 2018). Moreover, when a similar study was conducted on mice, the results were similar to those of humans. The article also states that researchers around the world have been trying to come up with ways to increase energy expenditure and from the study it is vivid that lipokines acts as a signal to increase the use of fatty acid during exercise. The article concludes that if scientists develop more knowledge on how exercise works, it will help prevent metabolic diseases.
Hormone from fat boosts
I found the article informative and comprehensive. To come up with a conclusion more than one study was conducted to eliminate chances of coming up with biased results. For instance, two samples of human beings were used, one comprising of twenty-seven healthy men of different ages, and the other consisting of young male and female without an exercise routine (Science Daily, 2018). In this case, variables such as fitness, age, and fitness have been considered.
While reading the article I did not understand the significance of the study until I read the conclusion. Many Americans and people from all around the world are battling obesity and other diseases associated with excess weight. The study is, therefore, a step towards gaining more knowledge on the role of exercise in preventing metabolic debases. However, to achieve that goal more comprehensive study needs to be done.
One of the greatest flaws of the article is that it fails to clearly indicate the criteria that were used to select a sample. The first study entailed twenty-seven males fit males from different ages yet the article fails to state why the sample was fit for the study.
Furthermore, I failed to understand if gender played a role as a variable. The article also fails to give comprehensive details on how data was analyzed. On the other hand, the title of the article reflects the role of exercise and cold in influencing lipokines hormone. However, the study wholly concentrates on the aspect of exercise and fails to show the role of cold in levels of lipokines.
The article states that people do not respond equally to exercise. Furthermore, some people require little effort to lose weight while others have to maintain an exercise routine for a long time for results to show. When I was reading the article, I was hoping to get more information on the explanation for the valuables.
However, after reading the article, I only got to understand that exercise have an effect on brown fat. Therefore, the article is not comprehensive in indicating why people respond differently to exercise but rather gives an explanation of what happens during exercise. All in all, the study could be the breakthrough to eliminating metabolic disease if further study is conducted.
