During today’s show, Dr. Oz and Chris Powell discussed ways of improving your metabolism. The pituitary gland is the reason for some of your biggest body complaints. In this segment, Dr Oz brought up Renee, an audience member, who stated that she has been trying to lose weight for several years. Doctor Oz had her put on the gloves and showed her pituitary gland, which is this teenie tiny pin-like gland located in the middle of the brain and produces the growth hormone, which some have called, "The Fountain of Youth." Dr Oz says if you don't have enough growth hormone, "bad stuff happens." Lack of growth hormone changes the way your body collects fat (you store more fat) and your skin may lose elasticity, which brings on crow's feet. You may also lose muscle mass, which gives you those horrendous bat wings under your arms.

So what supplements can we take to help our metabolism?
