(NaturalNews) Suppressing the appetite is a key way to achieve weight loss. People are less likely to eat more than they should when their appetite is low. Studies show that natural supplements with extracts from artichokes, beans and vinegar may act as hunger suppressants.

Weight loss

Supplements containing artichoke and bean extracts may together be an appetite suppressor to promote weight loss. A study published in Phytotherapy Research in February 2011 found that participants given extracts of Cynara scolymus, from artichokes, along with extracts from Phaselolus vulgaris, from beans, were less hungry and lost weight. The participants took the supplements for two months. The control groups who did not take supplements did not experience a decrease in body mass index or a susceptibility to hunger like the supplement group experienced. Body mass index is a measure of weight compared to height that estimates body fat percentage.

Insulin

A study published in Phytotherapy Research in March 2011 found similar results in rats to the February 2011 study. Researchers fed normal weight and obese rats Cynara scolymus extracts an hour before their meals. Both the normal weight and obese rats showed a significant reduction in post-prandial glycemia, which is the level of glucose in blood before a meal. This is significant because your body releases insulin when glucose levels rise. Insulin stimulates glucose use for energy, but it also stores unused glucose as fat.

Satiation

According to a study published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 2005, vinegar supplements increase satiety and decrease the postprandial insulin response. Study participants were split into groups and given different levels of vinegar along with white bread. The higher the amounts of supplements the greater the feelings of fullness and the lower the insulin and glucose responses. Lower amounts of vinegar still decreased the responses significantly at 15 and 30 minutes; however, only the larger amount group saw a significant reduction when levels at 90 minutes post-meal.

Side effects

Supplements can help people avoid certain side effects. Drinking apple cider vinegar may work as a hunger suppressant, but it may can cause throat irritation when someone drinks it frequently because it is highly acidic, according to registered dietitian Katherine Zeratsky of the Mayo Clinic. A supplement cannot irritate the throat.

A natural appetite suppressant along with a healthy diet and reasonable exercise promotes faster weight loss and increases adherence to better eating.
