We all know there isn’t a magical secret to weight loss aside from healthy eating and exercise, but sometimes we could use a little boost—after all, there’s nothing like results to keep you motivated! But with so many “boosters” out there in the market, it’s hard to determine what works and what doesn’t, especially when it comes to products designed to curb hunger.
At Siti Med Spa, one of the products we recommend for appetite suppression is Diucaps. This safe, all-natural dietary supplement might just be the boost you need for your overall weight loss strategy.
What is Diucaps?
Get ready to time-travel back to high school biology class—remember amino acids? Also knowns as “the building blocks of life,” they combine to make proteins and perform all sorts of other essential biological functions. They’re also used frequently in drug manufacturing and food technology.
The active ingredient in Diucaps is the amino acid Phenylalanine, which inhibits appetite by increasing the brain’s production of the neurotransmitter NE (norepinephrine), generating feelings of joy, ambition, and alertness. Phenylalanine also releases of the hormone CCK (cholecystokinin), another appetite suppressor.
Amino acids vs. stimulants
As you probably know, there are enough appetite suppressant drugs on the market to fill an entire store on their own, but most of them are made from stimulants, which often have undesirable side effects.
Stimulant-based suppressants are typically made with amphetamine, which works by causing the brain to release NE—however, amphetamine products may not work for everyone. Phenylalanine (specifically, L-phenylalanine, the type used in Diucaps), boosts production of NE to replenish what it releases, without the resulting “crash” some people get when they stop taking amphetamines.
Avoid the dreaded crash
Those susceptible to the amphetamine crash risk depression and demotivation, increasing their chances of gaining the weight back after they stop taking the supplement.
When you start making progress in your weight loss goal, the last thing you need is a setback. What you do need are positive feelings shouting “you can do it!” like your brain’s own personal cheerleading team. Phenylalanine is so adept at this, it’s often used in cases depression, replacing anti-depressants quite successfully.
A multi-faceted approach to wellbeing
While many supplements that curb hunger have unwanted side effects, Diucaps has added benefits. Besides L-phenyalanine, Diucaps contains Vitamins C and B6. These are required to convert phenylalanine to NE by the brain, but they also maintain the protein collagen to strengthen blood vessels and work as an antioxidant.
Diucaps also contains Vitamin B6 Pyridoxine, which is a natural diuretic and mood stabilizer. Plus, it helps metabolize fats and carbohydrates, and maintain the balance of sodium and potassium to regulate body fluids. Another ingredient in Diucaps, Vitamin B5 Pantothenic Acid, is a “coenzyme” that helps release energy from carbohydrates, fats, and proteins and aids in utilization of other vitamins. It can also improve your body’s ability to withstand stressful conditions and help prevent premature aging and wrinkles.
