Science May Channel Your Hormones To Help You Lose Weight
Researchers say the LCN2 hormone has previously been shown to make mice feel full after a meal.
The hormone is secreted by bone cells and found naturally in mice and humans.
The study found that the LCN2 hormone was also associated with a reduced feeling of hunger after a meal.
