Appetite Suppressants

Hoodia Appetite Suppressants

There are - literally - hundreds of appetite suppressants to be discovered, all claiming to do the same thing, but have you ever looked closely into how they work and what the ingredients are?

Hoodia Gets to Work

You have the Hoodia, which can help you cut down on meal portions without causing your body harm.

Hoodia Gordonii will provide an all natural, yet potent and effective result. Hoodia is quickly absorbed into your body and starts working immediately.

Hoodia has been found to:

  • Be 10,000 times stronger than glucose at suppressing your appetite
  • Reduce your food intake by 50 percent
  • Cut your calorie intake by 2,000 calories
  • Increases your energy levels
  • Be 100 percent side effect free.

Casein Protein

Casein is a milk protein, similar to whey; however, casein is absorbed by the body much more slowly than whey. This means it is a good choice for meal replacements, which help you feel full longer. Another way to use casein as an appetite suppressant is to take it right before bedtime when it can supply your body with protein throughout the night as you enter a catabolic state.

Then you have other appetite suppressants that work by chemically altering your brain signals, and affecting your health as a whole.


Reductil was proven to help consumers lose a steady weight loss of 1 to 2 pounds a week - but, alongside these benefits consumers expected to experience a range of other effects. And not all of the positive nor pleasant.

Reductil worked in the central nervous system to help you feel fuller quicker, so you didn't feel the need to eat as much as you normally would.

While Reductil was popular and very effective, it is no longer available following a review by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) which suggests that the risks outweighed any benefits, because it could increase the chance of having a stroke or heart attack.

Some of the other not-so-pleasant effects included: Not Feeling Well

  • Palpitations.
  • Breathlessness.
  • Racing heart.
  • Stomach cramps.
  • Diarrhea.

And these are the tame side effects! Some of the less common side effects include coronary heart disease AND liver/pancreatic disease, not exactly inspiring.

Do your research and check out the history of a supplement before investing.

Beat Your Sweet Tooth with Scent

A whiff of vanilla may be the antidote for your craving for a double dip of Ben and Jerry's New York Super Fudge Chunk ice cream. Here's the theory: According to experts, the inherent sweetness of vanilla sends neuropeptides (gut to brain messengers) into a kind of sensory overload that fools you into feeling like you've satisfied your sweet tooth. Any vanilla scent -- extract, body lotion or a candle -- has a similar effect.
