CraveArrest is a nonprescription diet pill made by a company based in the United States but that sells in both the U.S. and Canada. The company is called Designs for Health, which produces supplements in a range of different categories, from female health to cardiovascular wellness.
The brand claims that CraveArrest will provide dieters with an optimal neurotransmitter balance. Neurotransmitters are a type of brain chemical used in the brain to communicate with itself. Some examples of neurotransmitters include serotonin and dopamine. Neurotransmitters are responsible for a large number of brain signals and sensations, including certain cravings, such as those for food and for the sensation of hunger.
The idea behind CraveArrest is that it will alter the balance of neurotransmitters in such a way that hunger and food cravings will be reduced.
At the time this review was written, the CraveArrest ingredients were: Vitamin C, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, L-Tyrosine, 5-HTP, Taurine, Rhodiola.
Research has determined that there may be a certain amount of clinical benefit to each of those substances. For instance, that vitamin combination is known to promote healthy adrenal and endocrine function. When those glands are well balanced, it can be easier for an individual to manage his or her weight.
Similarly, 5-HTP is a serotonin precursor. Serotonin is believed to play a role in the sensation of food cravings as well as anxiety. By reducing both of those sensations, dieters may find it easier to reach their goals.
Taurine is also an amino acid which may also play a role in reducing anxious feelings while also decreasing the sensation of cravings. Rhodiola, on the other hand, is an energy boosting substance which may help to ease stress. These are both helpful for people who are trying to stay active and keep on top of their diets.
That said, regardless of whether or not the ingredients can live up to those claims, there has yet to be any evidence that this combination of substances can reducing cravings and anxiety while boosting energy enough that there will be a measurable difference on the scale. It is unclear as to whether or not the result of using this formula could actually result in fat loss.
Therefore, it is important to speak with a doctor before starting the use of this product, as a professional medical opinion may help to determine whether or not CraveArrest will be safe and effective for you based on your weight loss strategy, expectations and health needs.
