#5 - Insulin Lock and Key Model of Metabolism The Meta Health Podcast

    • Nutrition

This episode will explain the important interaction between insulin, insulin receptor, and a key protein called IRS (insulin receptor substrate).  I'll use a simple lock and key model to simplify how these molecules interact and serve as an important doorway to metabolism.  Understanding the information in this episode will move you closer to gaining deep insights into future episodes where I discuss the molecular and lifestyle basis for insulin resistance and related issues with metabolism.
