Sensa Tastants Reviews
Sensa Tastants are a unique weight loss aid because they do not arrive in the average form of a pill or a beverage or even a powder. Sensa Tastants are, for lack of a more scientific term, sprinkles that you apply to your meals and that facilitate weight loss by increasing your satiety and decreasing your appetite. According to the manufacturers of this product you will use, “…your senses of smell and taste as allies in weight loss. Sprinkling Tastants on your food makes you feel full faster by stimulating the part of your brain that tells your body it’s time to stop eating.” Sensa Tastants are created using Maltodextrin (Derived from Corn from the USA), Tricalcium Phosphate, Silica, Natural and Artificial Flavors. Sensa also contains Soy and Milk ingredients. Sensa is sodium- free, sugar-free, calorie free, gluten-free, and there are no stimulants, drugs or MSG. This product is sold for $59 for a month supply.
Unlike a majority of the weight loss products we come across, Sensa Tastants has actually been proven to have weight loss abilities in a large clinical trial. In it, over 1,400 men and women lost 30.5 pounds in a period of 6 months—by doing nothing more than sprinkling the Tastants over their meals. This is not an astronomical amount of weight loss but it was achieving without additional exercise. This leads us to believe that the addition of exercise and a proper diet might encourage even greater weight loss over time.
The study wasn’t conducted with the strictest of guidelines and that makes the purported results somewhat fungible. The test subjects weighed themselves and reported in so the exact tally of weight loss achieved is not guaranteed by scientific parameters. Also, upon purchasing a month’s supply of Sensa Tastants you will be required to enroll in an auto-ship program (which really means an auto-billing program) and auto-ship programs are notoriously hard to escape from.
This product shows some innovation and some promise but there are too many variables to recommend it at this time. There is still a great deal of research that we would like to see done in a professional and rigorous way so that the exact potential of this product can be seen. We do not recommend Sensa Tastants at this time.
Dr. Alan Hirsch, an intrepid doctor and scientist, whose lifelong specialty has been understanding how our senses, and in particular, smell and taste affect the brain’s functioning. Dr. Hirsch noticed that many patients who had lost their sense of smell and taste due to illness or accident experienced rapid weight gain. Certain smells and tastes seemed to be acting on the brain to control the appetite.
Dr. Hirsch studied hundreds of compounds, and after years of research, developed a set of virtually odorless and tasteless food sprinkles that have shown a strong impact on the body’s appetite-control center, which he called “Tastants.” Then, in one of the largest studies of a non-prescription weight-loss system, these Tastants were tested for effectiveness as a means of weight loss.
The results were significant: Over a six month period, 1,436 women and men sprinkled flavorless “Tastant” crystals on everything they ate, and lost an average of 30.5 pounds; nearly 15 percent of their total body weight.
Participants achieved these results without having to follow any special exercise regime or diet.
Best of all, because it is tasteless, odorless, contains no stimulants, and doesn’t directly interact with the digestive system, there are no unpleasant side-effects. None of the horror stories associated with “fat-blockers” or stimulant based weight loss systems.
According to Dr Hirsch, “With SENSA, you can eat all the foods that satisfy your senses and you don’t have to deal with any intense food cravings or feelings of starvation. SENSA merely helps you eat less of the foods you love and gain greater satisfaction from smaller portions.”
