Some Basic Information about AMPK?

Q:
Some basic information about AMPK?

A:
AMPK is a kind of enzyme within people’s cells. It serves as the body’s “master regulating switch” and helps protect against obesity and diabetes.

It should be noticed that chronic nutritional overload is the main causes of decreased AMPK levels. When cells are chronically over-nourished, the energy-mobilizing enzymatic activity of AMPK will decrease.

The followings are some methods to increase AMPK levels.

  • Do more exercise
  • Eat a diet with low calorie
  • Take drugs such as Metformin
  • Take botanical extracts such as the Chinese herb Gynostemma pentaphyllum and trans -tiliroside derived from rose hips
