Crave Arrest


Product Description

Crave Arrest

Crave arrest is designed to balance the production of the major neurotransmitters, including serotonin and dopamine, that affect cravings of all kinds.
The Tyrosine and 5HTP found in CraveArrest are in an ideal 10:1 ratio for superior results. The adaptogenic herb Rhodiola Rosea known for aiding the stress response is included, as is Taurine.
Factors involved in cravings:
  • Physiologic factors
    • Neurotransmitter balance of Serotonin, Dopamine, Gaba, Glutamine, Acetyl-Choline and opioids. In general, any deficiency of these could trigger anxiety, hunger, depression, and cravings.
    • Genetic specificity of brain neurochemistry and hormonal balance.
    • 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.
    • The level of glycogen stores in the liver is communicated to the brain through the vagal nervous system, thus attempting to influence the appetite.
    • Blood glucose levels are perceived directly by the brain through glucoreceptors. Low blood glucose levels trigger carbohydrate cravings.
    • The adrenal hormones cortisol and adrenaline increase production of the sex steroid hormones estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone. These have a complex influence on appetite and mood.
    • 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.
    • Pancreatic hormones: high insulin levels signal the brain to reduce hunger if the tissues are insulin sensitive.
  • Environmental and lifestyle factors
    • Stress (psychological or physical) has an individual effect on appetite
    • Diet: -high-protein/low-carbohydrate diets lower serotonin and increase dopamine and CCK
      high-carbohydrate/adequate protein diets increase serotonin
      adequate or high fat diets boost CCK and Galanin
    • Exercise: high intensity increases endorphins, opioids
      low intensity/long duration (~ 45 min) exercise boosts serotonin Statements about products on this website have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
