Certain fatty acids in pine nuts might help curb appetite, according to a new study.
Apparently the fatty acids in the Korean pine nut, releases an appetite-suppressing hormone called CCK
(to make a long word short)
The study was compiled by the Lipid Nutrition Company which makes a pine nut oil product called PinnoThin.
(an no I don’t own shares) Lipid Nutrition is a division of a Dutch company called Loders Croklann.
The pine nut is actually a seed and is used in many tasty ways including pesto sauce.
Researchers extracted those fatty acids from Korean pine nuts, tested the oil, and reported the results in Atlanta at the
American Chemical Society’s National Meeting & Exposition.
The study was done by a company called Lipid Nutrition, which makes a pine nut oil product called PinnoThin.
The researchers gave 18 overweight women gel capsules containing either the pine nut oil or olive oil. The women took the
capsules before eating a meal of carbohydrates.
The researchers checked the women’s levels of appetite-related hormones including CCK and GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide)
over four hours. The women also rated their appetite on the same schedule.
The women who had taken the pine nut capsules reported less hunger and showed higher levels of CCK and GLP-1 than
those who took the placebo pills.
The other by product is being that the oil is an essential fatty acid lower LDL is a good by product too!
So if you are ready to try something new, and don’t want to risk heart problems from dangerous medications perhaps
this may be worth your time.
Hey, its healthy. All you need is the will to succeed and with a little help from mother nature you can do it!
