“How can you diet when you’re hungry?” It’s a common refrain. It is easier to stick with a diet if hunger doesn’t plague your day. Vibrant Flora: Lean Body Support helps keep hunger at bay with the following ingredients:
Acacia gum fiber, which, along with pea protein in VFW, works to create a feeling of fullness and satiety.
D-phenylalanine, an amino acid that is the mirror image of L-phenylalanine. Before the D isomer can be metabolized, it must be converted to L-phenylalanine. However, it will cross the blood brain barrier, and, while waiting around to be converted, is instead picked up by specific cells of the brain and converted into phenylethylamine, called PEA for short. PEA is your brain’s natural amphetamine. It both improves attention and focus AND suppresses hunger. As a side note, D-phenylalanine also suppresses enzymes that break down endorphins and encephalins, your brain’s natural “feel-good” opioid neuropeptides. As those enzymes are suppressed, your brain’s natural, homemade feel-good biochemical increase, and a positive mood ensues. So D phenylalanine may suppress your appetite, and make you feel good about not eating.
Satiereal® is derived from the flowers of saffron crocus, Crocus sativus L. It is a natural serotonin reuptake inhibitor that improves levels of the neurotransmitter, serotonin. Improving levels of serotonin increases satiety and decreases appetite. Double-blind placebo controlled human clinical studies show that Satiereal® indeed increases satiety, decreases hunger, reduces sugar cravings, and reduces compulsive snacking between meals. In the studies, at 100% of women taking Satiereal® reported decreased hunger. 80.7% of women lost weight, with a maximum of 11 lbs lost in two months. Notably, the Satiereal® group preferentially lost fat mass, instead of lean mass. The recommended daily dose of Satiereal® is 176.5 mg per day. You will notice that a serving of VFW contains the full recommended serving.
