Wine activate AgRP protein in the brain, causing appetite to drink more alcohol.Scientists at the Francis Crick Institute, UK, discovered alcoholic beverages such as wine activates a protein in the brain related to appetite, according to Science Alert.
Therefore, we will feel hungry after drinking a lot of alcohol. The study results are published today in the journal Nature Communications 10/1. The researchers injected the alcohol (ethanol) in mice stomach once a day, for three days. Injected daily dosage equivalent to two bottles of wine or beer if the mouse is 10 people. After three days, the male mice and female mice participation experiments about 25% more food than mice not injected with alcohol.
We ate the most added on the second day, though scientists are not sure why.In addition to measuring the volume of food consumption, the researchers reviewed the activity of nerve cells Agouti-related protein (AgRP) in the mouse brain. AgRP is a protein that affects the cycle of rats foraging. When this protein is activated, the mouse will go eat and proteins are deactivated, mice tend to stop eating. Scientists detect electrical activity in AgRP neurons if mice are for “drink”. When they inhibit the activity of AgRP, ethanol into mice no longer the key factor deciding the rodents eat as much. A similar process may occur in humans, because we control hunger by AgRP in the brain. “If you drink a lot of alcohol, it will affect the brain and cause you to eat more,” Sarah Cains, a member of the research team, said.
