Your Stomach Has a Mind of It's Own
Ghrelin activation is vital for maintaining your blood sugar during calorie restriction or starvation. Ghrelin does this by activating growth hormone in your brain. Most overweight people suffer from leptin resistance, meaning they are in a false state of perceived starvation. This causes ghrelin to excessively activate even though there is excess food consumption – causing drastic metabolic confusion.
The issue of fixing ghrelin is one of fixing the efficiency of the hormone. This is reflected primarily by having a normal appetite and a lack of cravings for food or a lack of subconscious drive to eat excess food at any one meal or as a binge episode. Here's how to reduce excess ghrelin activation to control cravings.
1. Reduce Leptin Resistance
2. Reduce Bacterial LPS
Nutrients that Help Reduce Sugar and Food Cravings
Wellness Resources LeptiSlim® contains colostrum, chromium, and bitter herbs that have a long, traditional use in controlling cravings for sweets. These herbs may also have a natural balancing effect on the bacterial contents of your digestive tract.*
Wellness Resources Pine Nut Oil contains 1,000 mg of pure korean pine nut oil per capsule. This nutrient is soothing to the digestive tract. Studies show that 3,000 mg of pine nut oil can reduce appetite for up to 4 hours.*
It is also helpful to get 30 - 50 grams of fiber per day, take a high quality probiotic supplement, and take mercury-free DHA fish oil. Other nutrients that support the pancreas and improve blood sugar metabolism include chromium, cinnamon, vanadium, banaba, and green coffee extract. These nutrients are found in Wellness Resources Cinnamon Plus™ and LeptiSlim®.*
Cravings for sweets and carbohydrates, along with weight gain, put major stress on insulin function. LeptiSlim® helps curb appetite, reduce food cravings, increase metabolism and promote stable blood sugar. It is one of our best nutritional supplements to help overcome food cravings.*
Cinnamon Plus™ is a premier product for blood sugar support, containing three different standardized extracts (cinnamon, coffee berry, and banaba), each with clinical science showing effective support for healthy blood sugar metabolism. It provides direct nutritional support for your pancreas and liver to effectively metabolize blood sugar, and also helps muscles utilize sugar in an optimal way.*
Leptinal® - The Leptin Helper
Leptinal® helps promote healthy function within your white adipose tissue, a vital necessity for proper leptin and consequent insulin function. Specifically, the DHA fish oil in this product is known to boost the production of adiponectin by white adipose tissue. Adiponectin is vital for normal and healthy blood sugar metabolism. Because the nutrients in this product also support better leptin entry into your brain, brain-related insulin function is also supported.*
Fiber Helper™ provides a great source of three different soluble fibers that help absorb toxic waste products like a sponge: oat beta glucan, psyllium, and arabinogalactan. Many people do not get enough fiber because they do not eat enough fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Adequate fiber is essential for your bowels to move well and the final elimination of toxins, as well as normal blood sugar and insulin response to a meal.*
Probiotics that help to nourish the intestinal tract, thereby supporting healthy digestion. These super strains of friendly bacteria help to promote a more normal intestinal environment. This helps to reduce the toxic burden in your GI tract as well as reducing unpleasant gas or bloating.*
