Top 5 Appetite Suppressing Ingredients:  Make Your Next Diet A Little Easier!


Do you feel like no matter how hard you try to diet, you are always feeling hungry and wind up cheating due to hunger pangs?  What if you can take a supplement that will help curb your hunger and lessen your appetite to allow you to stick to your diet?  Welcome to the world of appetite suppressing ingredients found in some supplements.  These ingredients will do just that and help you on your way to a leaner looking physique in no time!




Yerba Mate

Yerba Mate has been around for a very long time and is found in both hot and cold beverages.  The leaves of this product are made into a tea and when ingested helps not only suppress appetite, but also boost metabolism and reduce fatigue.  Another property of yerba mate is its diuretic properties—helping pull water out of the body.  Along with being a diuretic, the caffeine in yerba mate will give you the feel of a stimulant to help burn off unwanted body fat.  

Hoodia Gordonii

Hoodia Gordonii is another product that has been around for a very long time.  The hoodia plant has been known for its ability to suppress hunger and even thirst.  Hoodia tricks the brain into feeling full due to steroidal glycoside known as “p57”.  The main concern about hoodia is if the form being used in many supplements is the true hoodia gordonii from South Africa.  It takes several years for the plant to mature where it can be harvested.  It has been said that 80% of the hoodia products on the market are bogus so be sure to do your research on the brand you choose to buy from to make sure they can verify that you are indeed purchasing the authentic 100% South African Hoodia.

Chromium Chelate

Chromium Chelate is a trace mineral that has been known to aid in fat metabolism, glucose regulation, and appetite suppression.  The properties of chromium allow the body to work more efficiently in burning fat and utilizing sugar for energy.  Chromium is found in some of the foods we eat, however not enough is present in these foods to significantly make a difference—therefore supplementation is necessary.  

Caralluma Fimbriata

Caralluma Fimbriata is a plant found in India that has been used for hundreds of years to aid in appetite suppression.  This plant contains phytochemicals (Pregnane Glycosides, Flavone Glycosides and Megastigmane Glycosides) that trick the brain into thinking you are full even when the stomach is empty.  Another amazing property of caralluma fimbriata is that it helps the body absorb both fats and carbohydrates to allow your body to use more body fat to burn as fuel.  This product is not a stimulant and will not affect the central nervous system.  


Most people associate caffeine as a stimulant which only gives you energy.  On the contrary, caffeine also contains appetite suppressing properties.  Not only could a cup of coffee in the morning help you get on your way, but it could also help you curb your hunger for quite some time after.  With that being said, with the amount of caffeine found in a cup of coffee, some people might find it to not be enough—that’s where caffeine pills can come into play.  Caffeine pills are quite inexpensive which make them a great addition to your weight loss plan.
