Appetite and diet

APPETITE

These Substances Suppress Appetite

SOLAL PRODUCTS BOLDED FOR EASY REFERENCE

Amino Acids

5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) (300 mg administered thirty minutes prior to eating) reduces Appetite (for Carbohydrates) in persons afflicted with Obesity. Research
Glutamine reduces the craving for Carbohydrates.
Histidine suppresses Appetite. research
Phenylalanine suppresses the Appetite (by stimulating CCK production). research

Tryptophan reduces the craving for Carbohydrates (but stimulates the Appetite for other nutrients). research
Tyrosine suppresses Appetite. research

Carbohydrates

Glucomannans suppress Appetite (due to their ability to absorb 50 - 200 times their weight of water).

Hormones

Cholecystokinin (CCK) sends Appetite suppressing messages to the Brain:
- CCK affects the quantity of food consumed at meals. As food accumulates in the Stomach and upper Small Intestines, CCK is released, influencing the Satiety Center of the Hypothalamus (causing Satiety or suppressed Appetite).

GLUCOMANNAN SUPPRESSES APPETITE

Neurotransmitters

Norepinephrine (NE) suppresses the Appetite.
Serotonin suppresses the Appetite. research

Organic Acids

Hydroxycitric Acid (-HCA) suppresses Appetite: research
- -HCA causes the redirection of excessive dietary Carbohydrates into additional Glycogen synthesis which in turn increases Glucoreceptor stimulation in the Liver and amplifies the satiety signal to the Brain.
USE SOLAL “HCA WITH CHROMIUM POLYNICOTINATE”

Polyphenols

Epigallo-Catechin-Gallate (EGCG) suppresses Appetite. Research

Proteins

Whey Protein may reduce Appetite (i.e. increase satiety) by stimulating the production/release of Cholecystokinin (CCK). references

These Foods/Herbs Suppress Appetite

A low-Glycemic Index diet reduces Appetite (most low-GI Foods increase/prolong satiation, thereby delaying the onset of hunger). research

Herbs

Green Tea suppresses Appetite (due to the Epigallo-Catechin-Gallate (EGCG) content of Green Tea). research
Stevia (½ cup of Stevia tea consumed approximately 30 minutes prior to meals) helps to suppress Appetite. research

Myths Dispelled

Algae
Spirulina has not been shown to reduce Appetite - this claim was based on its (non-therapeutic) quantities of Phenylalanine.

Other Factors that may Supress Appetite

Timing of Food Consumption

The timing of Food intake may influence Appetite: references
- Persons who consume a high proportion of their total daily Calories in the Morning have greater satiety (= reduced overall Appetite) compared with persons who consume a high proportion of their total daily Calories in the Evening (= increased overall Appetite).

Exercise and Appetite

Contrary to popular opinion, Aerobic Exercise does NOT reduce Appetite. Although Aerobic Exercise temporarily suppresses the Appetite, when researchers measured the total daily calorie intake of people who participate in Aerobic Exercise, it was found that total calorie intake over the course of a whole day was not influenced by Aerobic Exercise.
