Crave-Free is meant to put an end to dieting. Dieting is a much bigger health risk than is being overweight. Frequent dieting can lead to high blood pressure and can deprive your body of important nutrients that it needs. Staying on a diet is not sustainable anyway. Over 80% of those who begin a diet will eventually drop out and often gain more weight than they lose.
Many people try extreme caloric restriction to lose weight, but that means they don’t get the amount of protein and calories to build the muscle tissue they need to burn calories. Low protein diets which are deficient in amino acids (the building blocks of protein) also affect the brains ability to make neurotransmitters such as endorphins, dopamine, serotonin and epinephrine which affect mood, sensitivity to pain, and overall well-being. So, dieting can become a vicious cycle that can lead to rebound overeating and binging, adrenal burnout, constant hunger, and food cravings.
An essential amino acid that must be obtained through food. L-phenylalanine increases endorphins in the brain which help you tolerate pain and stress and is important in regulating mood and feelings of well-being.Dietary sources of L-phenylalanine include eggs, meat, fish, cheese and meat. If you crave sweets or alcohol and have a hard time getting enough sugary or starchy foods, you may need L-phenylalanine.??CAUTIONS: should not be taken with antipsychotic medication, MAOIs, or by people with schizophrenia or inherited disorders of phenylalanine (PKU).
An amino acid that can improve energy and concentration. L-tyrosine is a precursor of thyroid hormone and is necessary for the production of the neurotransmitters or brain chemicals that affect mood (epinephrine and dopamine). Without these neurotransmitters, you may feel mentally dull, tired and have low energy. If you need that morning cupof coffee to get going and you often have to have several cups of coffee throughout the day, you may be deficient in L-tyrosine.
Useful in stabilizing blood sugar levels, helps insulin work better and therefore, influences carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism.In research, chromium may increase muscle mass and decrease fat mass. Chromium is an essential trace element that may be deficient in those with diabetes, high stress levels, individuals taking medication for acid reflux (GERD) or those on corticosteroids or who are elderly. Other individuals may be deficient in chromium depending on their eating habits. The typical dietary consumption of chromium is well below the minimum adequate daily dietary intake established by the National Research Council, Food and Nutrition Board. Those who have a high intake of simple sugars and carbohydrates, those who engage in strenuous physical exercise, have infections or trauma may require more chromium. Chromium has no known side effects.
