Hunger hormone is also a stress hormone???
November 9, 2021
Do you ever feel like you need to grab something to eat when you're stressed? Well, there's a hormone for that!
Ghrelin, the hunger hormone, is now known to be part of our biological response to stress! This very recent study reviewed 10 other studies and confirmed that when people are put into a stressful situation (like a timed math test) levels of ghrelin quickly shoot up. That makes us want to seek food and start eating. The good news is that we now know that levels of this hunger hormone start going down soon after the stress is gone even if we don't eat anything.
But, this stress-ghrelin response is not the same for everyone.

Listen in to get the scoop on this new review study that links stress to hunger.
