Recently, a certain liver hormone has been said to determine a person's craving for sweets. The hormone FGF21 is the determining factor if a person is a sweet tooth.

What Does The FGF21 Hormone Do?

A study indicated that those people with the particular variants of the FGF21 gene are likely to crave for sweets. In fact, Professor Matthew Gillum, the author of the study shared that the results of this study have been surprising. This has given the researcher a new way to look at the role of a hormone on being a sweet tooth according to Express.

This latest study also raised awareness about the role of the liver in determining what the person eats. The research suggested that the liver hormones with the FGF21 will dictate the person's cravings for sweets.

Meanwhile, this study also found that there is a link with this variant to alcohol and smoking. However, there need to be more studies done in order to find out about the latter. This liver hormone is at fault in the organ that lets the person crave for more sweets, as reported by Mail Online.

Hormone Directs Food Cravings?

Once this certain liver hormone is secreted, the person cannot control the urge to find more sweets. This new research may be a new way of determining certain diets in the future, as it may be helpful in dictating what the person eats.
