Excess Weight and Obesity
It’s not easy to control or reverse excess weight and obesity because of changes in metabolism. These changes affect the body’s ability to break down fat stores for energy. As a result, it may be harder to lose weight over time regardless of your diet or activity levels.
Weight gain has a domino effect. First fat cells grow larger, causing them to overproduce NNMT.
What is NNMT? Nicotinamide N-methyltransferase (NNMT) is a cytosolic enzyme that regulates cell energy balance. It’s a catalyst in methylation, one of the ways the liver metabolizes certain compounds. It’s predominantly active in fat tissue. And, in many cancers, levels of NNMT enzyme correlate with increased risk of death. Therefore, NNMT may be a biomarker of cancer.
Next, NNMT slows down fat cell metabolism, making it harder for cells to burn fat. At the same time, more fat tissue produces more hormones and pro-inflammatory signals responsible for weight gain, as well as chronic diseases.
In short, NNMT production increases as fat cells grow, making it harder for you to lose weight and more likely that you’ll accumulate fat. For this reason, reducing NNMT may be crucial to weight loss.
5-Amino 1MQ and NNMT
Researchers at the University of Texas tested a variety of NNMT selective and membrane-permeable small molecule inhibitors. And 5-amino 1MQ performed the best. So, 5-amino 1MQ may treat the root cause of weight gain and obesity because it prevents excess NNMT.
By reducing NNMT, white fat cell metabolism (fat burning) won’t slow down, and fat cells won’t grow. Furthermore, it may increase the metabolism within fat cells. Additionally, decreasing NNMT may help shrink fat cells and reduce the size of fat deposits.
5-amino 1MQ also didn’t affect any other enzymes’ activity in the metabolic cycles adversely, which lowers the risks of possible side-effects.
It may also treat many other diseases. In addition to increased body weight, scientists have linked NNMT to other conditions such as:
- Heart disease
- Parkinson’s disease
- Neurological dysfunction
- Metabolic disease
- Kidney disease
Is 5-Amino 1MQ an Effective Weight Loss Peptide?
5-amino 1MQ may be a valuable peptide for weight loss because it enables your body to burn fat for energy. What’s more, because of this, it maintains muscle mass.
It’s also relatively safe and effective for preventing and reversing obesity because it doesn’t affect other enzymes.
Besides, it’s potentially a better treatment option for someone with type 2 diabetes and other conditions related to obesity.
However, it blocks an enzyme that affects how your body uses energy, causing the basal metabolic rate (BMR) to increase. And an increase in BMR often causes an increase in appetite. For successful weight loss, you should still eat fewer calories than you burn. You can expect to see better physical performance roughly two weeks after starting treatment.
Other Benefits of 5-Amino 1MQ
While research is still ongoing, scientists have uncovered a few other potential benefits, including:
- It increases satellite cell proliferation and production in muscle tissue resulting in more athletic power and contractile ability.
- Lowers cholesterol
- Improves cellular energy
- Reduces inflammation
- Long-lasting increases in NAD+ levels. NAD+ is an anti-aging compound.
Pro Tip: 5-amino 1MQ may be a good option for individuals who want to develop a complete anti-aging plan. It stimulates an increase in NAD+, increasing metabolic rate, and activating a gene called sirtuin-1 (SIRT1), the longevity gene. SIRT1 may reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as:
- Heart, liver, and kidney disease
- Metabolic syndrome
Moreover, it may make you feel good. Patients taking 5-amino 1MQ peptides report experiencing less body pain, more energy, and better focus.
Overall, based on recent studies, 5-amino 1MQ may help those with severe obesity. It inhibits NNMT production, which may prevent fat accumulation, increase cell metabolism, and shrink fat cells. In other words, it has the potential to help reverse and prevent obesity, even for those who find it hard to lose weight. It also has the potential to treat various chronic conditions, such as heart disease and diabetes. Furthermore, it may have anti-aging benefits and improve athletic performance.
