  • Detailed Description

    Hormones, etc. that affect metabolism, blood glucose levels, gastric emptying and appetite control. 38 vials for use in kinesiolology, chiropractic, naturopathy etc. and by practitioners of Vega, Mora, Bicom etc.


    All these vials are available in other kits (Hormone, Body Biochemicals and Amino Acids). This kit simply brings the ones involved in weight managment into one place.


    WT 01    Anandamide    
    May increase appetite.

    WT 02    Arginine    
    An amino acid. Involved with glucose control mechanism in blood; enhances fat metabolism; involved in insulin production; stimulates human growth hormone.

    WT 03    Carnitine    
    An amino acid. Major role in transferring fatty acids into cells where used as energy sources; mobilising fatty deposits in obesity.

    WT 04    CART    
    Modulates the action of leptin and neuropeptide Y and so reduces appetite.

    WT 05    CCK / Cholecystokinin    
    Stimulates a feeling of satiety; may regulate feeding as a “stop eating” signal.

    WT 06    Corticotropin Releasing Hormone / CRH    
    Involved in the regulation of food intake.

    WT 07    Cortisol / Hydrocortisone    
    The principal gluccocorticoid; increases blood glucose levels by increasing cellular utilisation of proteins and fats as energy sources thus conserving glucose; stimulates liver cells to produce glucose from amino acids and fats.

    WT 08    Cyclic AMP / Cyclic Adenosine-3’,5’ - monophosphate     
    Causes adipose cells to break down triglycerides and release fatty acids more rapidly; stimulates thyroid cells to secrete more thyroid hormone.

    WT 09    Dipeptidyl Peptidase IV    
    Arrests biological activity of  GLP1 and Substance P.

    WT 10    Epinephrine/ Adrenaline    
    Slows digestion, increases blood sugar.

    WT 11    Exendin (9-39)    
    Reduces glucose levels; competes for the same brain receptors as GLP1 and so blocks the effect of GLP1 and stimulates appetite.

    WT 12    Galanin    
    Stimulates the appetite.

    WT 13    Ghrelin    
    Increases appetite; may be a hormonal link between stomach, hypothalamus and pituitary and so regulate energy balance; regulates growth hormone secretions; may signal to the hypothalamus when an increase in metabolic efficiency is necessary.

    WT 14    Glucagon    
    Raises blood sugar levels by accelerating breakdown of glycogen into glucose in the liver, converting other nutrients into glucose in the liver, and releasing glucose into the blood – opposes the action of insulin.

    WT 15    Glucagon-Like Peptide 1/GLP1     
    Stimulates production of insulin; inhibits production of glucagon and gastric emptying; reduces appetite; lowers blood glucose in people with diabetes.

    WT 16    Glucocorticoids    
    Conversion of non-carbohydrates into energy.

    WT 17    Glycogen    
    The principal carbohydrate storage material in the body; plays an important role in controlling blood sugar levels.

    WT 18    Glycogen Phosphorylase A    
    Involved in converting glycogen to glucose.

    WT 19    Glycogen Synthase    
    Involved in converting glucose to glycogen.

    WT 20    Growth Hormone Inhibiting Hormone / Somatostatin    
    Inhibits secretion of insulin and glucagons and slows absorption of nutrients from the gastro-intestinal tract.

    WT 21    Human Growth Hormone / Somatotropin    
    Helps to maintain muscle and bone mass and promote healing of injuries and tissue repair; speeds up the breakdown of liver glycogen into glucose; excess production may cause diabetes mellitus.

    WT 22    Insulin    
    Decreases blood sugar levels.

    WT 23    Leptin    
    Released by fat cells as they synthesise triglycerides; reduces appetite; non-insulin dependent diabetes.

    WT 24    Melanocyte-Stimulating Hormone / MSH    
    Suppresses appetite.

    WT 25    Neuromedin B    
    Involved in blood glucose control; suppresses the appetite.

    WT 26    Neuropeptide Y    
    Stimulates appetite; causes increased storage of ingested food as fat; reduces energy expenditure.

    WT 27    Orexin B    
    Generated when blood sugar levels drop, so acting as a trigger to eat.

    WT 28    Pheylalanine    
    An amino acid. Precursor of tyrosine and therefore dopamine, norepinephrine (noradrenaline) and epinephrine (adrenaline), so affects blood sugar levels and fat metabolism; necessary for thyroid; involved in weight control.

    WT 29    Prostaglandin  E2 / PGE2    
    Acts on adenylate cyclase to enhance the production of cyclic AMP.

    WT 30    Protein Tyrosine Phosphatase / PTP1B    
    Inhibits signalling of leptin and insulin1; may explain resistance to leptin and insulin; likely to be important in obesity and type 2 diabetes; drug research now being carried out to find drugs to inhibit PTP1B.

    WT 31    Reverse T3 / 3,3’,5’-Triiodothyronine    
    Reverse T3 and T3 are secreted in an inverse relationship allowing the thyroid to adjust the amount of thyroid activity; blocks the action of T3 by binding with the receptor sites.

    WT 32    Serotonin    
    Decreases carbohydrate cravings; provides a feeling of fullness; enhances mood.

    WT 33    Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone / TSH    
    Stimulates thyroid gland to produce its hormones.

    WT 34    Thyrotropin Releasing Hormone / TRH    
    Stimulates anterior pituitary to secrete TSH.

    WT 35    Thyroxine / Tetraiodothyronine / T4    
    Converted into T3; increase rate at which cells release energy from carbohydrates.

    WT 36    Triiodothyronine/T3    
    Regulates metabolism by stimulating carbohydrate and fat breakdown.
    WT 37    Urocortin    Inhibits appetite.

    WT 38    Val-Pro-Asp-Pro-Arg    
    Research on rats indicates that this is an appetite suppressant.
