Appetite Suppression

An Assisted Approach to Natural Weight Loss

Overeating is one of the biggest problems you face while attempting to lose weight. There are many reasons why this occurs. Some are emotional eaters; they eat to soothe feelings that they do not know how to handle otherwise. There are others that overeat because they have insulin problems that cause significant fluctuations in their blood sugar levels. When these levels drop, your body requires glucose to elevate it. The brain then signals that you should ingest more food. Genetics also plays a significant role in feeling hungry or full. Appetite suppression helps curb these food cravings, so you can actually lose weight without complicating your efforts.

Appetite Suppressants and Craving Control

Prescription appetite suppressants address hunger cravings from the source, directly within the brain. They function within the hypothalamus to tell it to stop sending out hunger signals. Appetite suppressants regulate the hormones associated with hunger, and what the body does when it thinks that it needs more food. Essentially, it releases norepinephrine; a neurotransmitter, when triggered, is known as the “fight or flight” response. This informs the brain, food is not needed. Many times, those who are obese are getting hunger signals for reasons other than the real need for food.

Small amounts of adrenaline and epinephrine are also released in the brain when triggered by appetite suppressants. When this happens, the body can begin to break down stored fat reserves and may trigger small surges in your metabolism. These things can help, but is not the reason people rely on appetite suppressants when they want help controlling their hunger cravings, and to lose weight.

Many appetite control medications and supplements for obesity have come and gone, but only a few have stood the test of time. Prescription appetite suppressants is one drug category that has been around since the 1950s. They have gone by many different brand names on their own, or part of a combination used to treat obesity. Though many of these have come and gone, some have stood out as safe, and useful tools for weight loss.
