CarbCrave Complex is designed to help lessen appetite and curb excessive carbohydrate intake by supporting healthy brain chemistry and mood.*
Uses For CarbCrave Complex
Lessens Cravings: CarbCrave Complex supports healthy neurotransmitter metabolism, affecting the appetite and mood centers of the brain.
5-HTP is a precursor for serotonin, the same neurotransmitter released by the consumption of carbohydrates and associated with enhanced mood. At the same time, dl-phenylalanine and l-tyrosine support dopamine and epinephrine production, responsible for the sensation of well-being. Vitamin B6 is integral as a cofactor for neurotransmitter synthesis. Rhodiola is also believed to encourage the activities of these neurotransmitters while strengthening the body’s resistance to stress and fatigue, common triggers for undesirable eating behaviors.
Both chromium picolinate and Relora have demonstrated the potential to promote more healthful patterns of carbohydrate and energy intake in adult subjects. In one study involving 49 volunteers prone to eating under stress, Relora helped reduce stress-related snacking of sweets by 76%. In another trial, chromium picolinate supplementation helped reduce carbohydrate intake and mood fluctuations.* Cravings and appetite are influenced by many factors, only some of which may be affected by the ingredients in this formula.
