Appetite Suppressant

Losing weight can be difficult for a foodie with a big appetite, or those who suffer from cravings. The appetite for food is a complex process, and involves a number of different chemical reactions in the brain. There are weight loss supplements available that are designed to suppress appetite, and give people the kick-start they may need on the way to achieving their weight-loss goals.

Appetite suppressants work by tricking your brain into not noticing hunger pangs, and helping you to feel full, even if you have not eaten. This means that you are more likely to eat fewer kilojoules. These supplements include:

  • Hoodia Gordonia – a cacti-extract that works by signalling to the brain that the stomach is full, even without eating.
  • Acacia Rigdula – extracted from the Blackbrush flowering shrub, this compound contains amphetamine substances that are known to inhibit the actions of neurotransmitters in the appetite centres of the brain.
  • Micellar casein – this protein from milk forms a gel in the stomach producing a protein sustained release effect. It may also assist in curbing appetite.
  • ALA (alpha lipoic acid) – may reduce appetite and stabilise blood glucose levels.
  • Soluble fibre-containing products – these can contribute to a feeling of fullness by forming a gel in the stomach. Examples of soluble fibre include guar gum, pectin and psyllium husk.

 

Other substances that may have an appetite suppression effect by increasing feelings of satiety, or fullness, include the Korean pine nut, CLA (conjugated linoleic acid), caralluma extract, and omega-3 fatty acids.
