Science & Research
CarbCrave Complex is designed to help lessen appetite and curb excessive carbohydrate intake by supporting neurotransmitters involved in appetite and mood. 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is a precursor for serotonin, the same neurotransmitter released by the consumption of carbohydrates; serotonin is also associated with enhanced mood.1,2 At the same time, DL-phenylalanine supports dopamine and epinephrine production, responsible for the sensation of well-being.3 Vitamin 6 is integral as a cofactor for neurotransmitter synthesis.4 Rhodiola and ashwagandha are believed to encourage the activities of these neurotransmitters while strengthening the body's resistance to stress and fatigue, common triggers for undesirable eating behaviors.sup>5,6 Research indicates that Sensoril® ashwagandha promotes relaxation and maintains healthy cortisol response. It is these actions that may be responsible for its supportive effects on glucose and fat metabolism.7 Both chromium picolinate and Relora® have demonstrated the potential to promote more healthful patterns of carbohydrate and energy intake in adult subjects. In one study involving 49 volunteers prone to eating under stress, Relora® helped reduce stress-related snacking of sweets by 76%.8 In another trial, chromium picolinate supplementation helped reduce carbohydrate intake and mood fluctuations.9 Cravings and appetite are influenced by many factors, only some of which may be affected by the ingredients in this formula.
