Weight management with abalone

Abalone is rich in protein which is crucial for your health and wellbeing. Protein is an important component of every cell in your body and it is also found in your hair and nails. The body utilizes protein to build and repair tissues. In addition, protein is also used for the production of hormones, enzymes, and other body chemicals, and for building blocks of bones, cartilage, muscle, blood, and skin. Most people tend to associate protein with stronger, bigger muscles but you need it for weight management, too.

Protein has the tremendous potential to play the key role in the regulation of body weight. Studies show that protein increases total weight loss and it increases the percentage of fat loss. In addition, protein promotes satiety and keeps you full for longer[1]. That way, you avoid overeating and it becomes easier to resist cravings, particularly since most people crave unhealthy food such as pizza or chocolate.

The power of antioxidants

Besides proteins, abalone is high in carotenoids, potent antioxidants found in plant and some marine organisms. Carotenoids play a substantial role in the control of key aspects of adipose tissue biology including the production of new adipocytes from precursor cells, metabolic and secretory capacities of mature adipocytes and local inflammation. Numerous studies have confirmed an anti-adiposity and anti-inflammatory action of carotenoids[2].

Antioxidants protect the body’s cells from free radical-induced damage. By protecting the cells you get to protect the DNA located in the nucleus of every cell. As a result, the function of cells in your body improves significantly, thus leading to more efficient energy production. The energy boost and cells that function properly improve your body’s metabolism and its ability to convert fats and sugars into more energy for you to spend during your workout.

Omega-3 fatty acids

Abalone is a wonderful source of Omega-3 fatty acids which are crucial for our health. Omega-3s improve your cognitive functions, heart health, joint health, and they also prove to be beneficial for weight management. These fatty acids exhibit anti-inflammatory and immune-modulating effects that protect us from atherosclerosis and its consequences[3]. However, inflammation also causes leptin (weight control hormone) to be less effective, thus contributing to weight gain and increased risk of metabolic syndrome[4].

Evidence shows that supplementation with Omega-3 fatty acids can attenuate weight gain and reduce body fat, especially visceral fat (stored within the abdominal cavity and surrounds internal organs). These important fatty acids may promote increases in lean tissue mass, thus enhancing metabolic rate and indirectly contributing to the reduction of body fat. Another useful mechanism that Omega-3 fatty acids exhibit is vasodilator function and improved blood flow during exercise[5], thus allowing users to get the most out of their daily workouts.
