Scientists have found a way to overcome sugar cravings

Acid plant Gymnema sylvestre (Gymnema forest) help to overcome sugar cravings, writes Meddaily with reference to Medical Express. As specified, this plant is actively used in Ayurvedic medicine as an antidiabetic remedy. According to a recent study, which involved 58 volunteers, this plant suppresses taste responses to sweet compounds in foods. The researchers wanted to figure out how Gymnema sylvestre affects the desire of people to consume foods with a high sugar content. We also evaluated the power of hunger and the positive feeling in the consumption of sugary products. Scientists point out that sweet food is very high in calories, has good flavor, which makes it especially attractive. According to experts, changing the taste of sweet foods will help to limit the intake of high-calorie foods. According to the results of the experiment revealed that the plant has reduced the consumption of products with high sugar content. The fact that it’s made of sweet foods to be less pleasant has reduced the desire to eat sweets. For example, in chocolate people felt not the sweetness and the bitterness. Moreover, the effect was particularly pronounced at the sweet tooth. It is noteworthy that the plant is exposed selectively on the taste buds that recognize sweet taste. The perception of other taste sensations have not changed. This effect was maintained for 30-60 minutes.
