      Comments Off on Ghrelin can increase the urge to exercise, according to new discoveries

As observed by some researchers when conducting experiments with mice, restricting access to food increases the level of a specific hormone called ghrelin, which can increase motivation for exercise. This study, published in the Journal of Endocrinology, describes how increasing levels of this hormone can cause mice to spontaneously initiate exercise or physical activity. According to the same investigator, this… Read more »
