CraveArrest, a unique synergistic formula, was designed for those who need extra help in controlling their food cravings, mood swings and addictions. It is designed to have a positive impact on neuro-transmitter production. Appetite control is an important factor in the degree of compliance of dietary instruction for weight control and for specific disease management and prevention.Many factors have an impact on brain neurochemistry and endocrine balance such as age, genetics, circadian rhythms and various environmental factors including stress, diet, exercise, and medications.

The perception of hunger is determined by many Physiologic factors:

1. Neurotransmitter balance of Serotonin, Dopamine, Gaba, Glutamine, Acetyl-Choline and opioids. In general, any deficiency of these could trigger anxiety, hunger, depression, and cravings.

2. Genetic specificity of brain neurochemistry and hormonal balance.

3. Body fat stores. Adipose tissue produces various metabolic signals that affect the appetite: leptin reduces hunger, inflammatory cytokines (TNF-alpha, IL-6, etc.) increase it.

4. The level of glycogen stores in the liver is communicated to the brain through the vagal nervous system, thus attempting to influence the appetite.

5. Blood glucose levels are perceived directly by the brain through glucoreceptors. Low blood glucose levels trigger carbohydrate cravings.

6. Adrenal hormones cortisol and adrenaline increase the hunger and sex hormones (estrogen, testosterone, progesterone) have a complex influence.

7. Gut derived hormones are produced directly in response to the macronutrient composition and size of the meals: CCK (in response to protein, fat and the stretching of the stomach by food/drink volume), Galanin (in response to fat), Ghrelin (in response to an empty stomach), and they signal the brain directly. CCK and galanin reduce hunger while Ghrelin stimulates it.

8. Pancreatic hormones: high insulin levels signal the brain to reduce hunger if the tissues are insulin sensitive. Research supports that higher protein diets are much more effective than higher carbohydrate diets at achieving weight loss results. The protein and fat in such a diet allows for proper satiety however the only downfall of such a diet is that it might not support adequate levels of serotonin due to lowered insulin levels. For this reason, Crave Arrest, could be used to raise serotonin and other essential neurotransmitters. These supplements are best taken on an empty stomach but will also work well if taken with meals. The time of administration should be decided by the patients depending on their need for satiety support or calming effect. Each patient should experiment with the timing and dosage, not exceeding 3 capsules at a time. The results obtained for the same individual may vary from day to day or depending on the time of the day due to all the factors mentioned above (including PMS, weekday versus weekend, sedentary vs active, etc). It is worth noting here that serotonin levels could also be boosted by things like: meditation, prayer, music, massage, or even acts of affection.

Research shows that Type II Diabetics have lower brain tryptophan levels and higher rates of depression. This may help explain their propensity towards sugar addiction beyond the typical fluctuating blood glucose levels. When twenty over weight, NIDDM patients were given 750 mg/day of 5-HTP or placebo for two weeks in a double-blind study, their daily energy intake decreased considerably as well as their carbohydrate and fat intake. Body weight also diminished along withappetite!
