【TGU Health Promotion : The Joy of Sports and Exercise】Understanding the effect of exercise intensity and duration on the secretion of hunger hormone

The acute effect of exercise intensity and duration on hunger hormone acylated gherlin and hunger level was studied collaboratively by Waseda’s Associate Professor Masashi Miyashita, Professor David Stensel of Loughborough University and other international researchers. As a result, they discovered that in comparison to exercise duration, exercise intensity lowered the secretion of acylated gherlin after running. Examining the response of gastrointestinal hormones against exercise intensity and duration is important for contributing to the development of exercise-based obesity prevention programs. The results of this study were published in the Journal of Endocrinology (latest Impact Factor 4.498).
