Being overweight or obese increases the risk of various diseases, including diabetes, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, and atherosclerosis. In addition, the risk of death associated with these diseases will increase. Therefore, the treatment of overweight and reduction of fat mass is very important and noteworthy. There are basically only two logical ways to treat this problem: 1. Reducing energy intake 2. Increasing energy consumption. In order to increase energy consumption in the body, stimulating the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) and its associated neurotransmitter, norepinephrine (NE), is a logical and practical way; this is because thermogenesis (the production of heat and energy consumption during various physiological processes in a variety of body cells), as well as the metabolism of fats, is largely controlled by this system. This stimulation and increase in SNS activity can be directly mediated, such as stimulation of adrenergic receptors (especially its types b) by agonists such as indirect or green tea catechin polyphenols, such as the use of NE-enhancing inhibitors and its reuptake inhibitors from synapses, in order to increase the amount and half-life of NE.
Due to the increase of obesity and diseases associated with insulin resistance syndrome (IRS) in various populations around the world, dietary quality plays an important role in combating these metabolic disorders. One of these parameters is the quality of carbohydrates (GI) glycemic index, which is used to classify the glycemic response of typed of foods containing carbohydrates (GI is a criterion for classifying different types of carbohydrates, ranging from zero to 100, depending on how high your blood sugar level rises after eating a particular carbohydrate. Low GI foods, due to their slow digestion and absorption, cause a gradual and slower increase in blood sugar levels and insulin levels in the blood.)
Numerous scientific documents have shown that low GI diets have many benefits in the prevention and treatment of various IRS-related diseases such as cardiovascular disease and type II diabetes, and the prevalence of IRS; and metabolic syndrome is lower in owners of such diets.
Apple cider vinegar contains an organic acid called acetic acid, which can reduce glucose response (Increased blood glucose levels after each meal) after eating carbohydrate-rich meals, thus reducing the GI of the meal. The mechanism of action of acetic acid in the occurrence of these effects is to reduce the amount and speed of emptying food from the stomach to the intestines.
Vitamin B6, or pyridoxine, is involved in the metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats and helps maintain proper levels of thyroid hormones. Vitamin B6 is involved in the process of converting iodine to thyroid hormones. In addition, it is necessary for the proper digestion of food.
