Supplements to help with the weight loss process

Recent research points to a growing number of overweight people, this is a reflection of several factors that go beyond the obvious, such as the consumption of large amounts of calories and industrialized foods. As multifactorial conditions, overweight and obesity may be related to imbalances in the thyroid, hypothalamus and even compulsions induced by anxiety, stress, depression or lack of sleep, which lead many people to seek a “reward” in food.

These behaviors, when prolonged, can affect metabolism and generate insulin resistance, leading the person to gain weight more easily than before. To help the weight loss process, in addition to food re-education and a way out of a sedentary lifestyle, we can count on food supplements. Meet some of them:

Caffeine: is a phytochemical that stimulates alertness and concentration, helps to accelerate metabolism, increasing the activity of enzymes that make fat stored in the body available and providing more disposition during training;

Creatine: amino acid that contributes to better physical performance and muscle mass gain, in addition to improving cognitive capacity and mood;

Valerian and Passiflora: herbal medicines that can be used as a supplement, helping those who eat compulsively caused by anxiety and helping to relax and remain calmer;

Tryptophan: this amino acid is mainly responsible for the production of serotonin, which acts in the central nervous system, regulating mood and appetite, in addition to providing well-being and helping to lose weight in people who eat as a “reward” in times of stress;

Melatonin: this hormone, despite not being directly linked to weight loss, can help in specific cases, for example, for people who tend to feel more hungry and eat more during the day due to insomnia;

Chitosan: after consumption, this fiber forms a kind of gel in the body, prolonging the feeling of satiety and reducing the absorption of fats in the intestine;

L-Carnitine: can be ingested before doing physical activities to enhance the use of body fat during training.

Moronare® (Moro orange extract): Like other ingredients, Moronare® should be ingested regularly, it has antioxidant and anti-adipogenic effects, promoting localized fat burning as it is a derivative of moro orange extract.

Before using any supplement, it is important to consult a health professional for proper diagnosis and guidance.

Jambu: a botanical extract with several applications

Plants and their extracts represent an important source of food, chemical and pharmaceutical inputs, being used for centuries. Modern technologies for extraction, purification and analysis of chemically active substances have opened up a wide spectrum of uses, and are increasingly targeted at applications with great specificity.


Jambu or watercress from Pará – Acmella oleracea or Spilanthes oleracea – a plant originating in the North of Brazil, is well known in Brazilian cuisine and consumed as a seasoning in typical regional dishes, including tacacá and duck in tucupi. Its extract is the subject of research in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries due to its anesthetic action, coming from an active called spilanthol.


In popular medicine, its leaves and flowers are used through infusion to treat dyspepsia, malaria, toothache and oral infections. It is also used by riverside communities in fishing, as its anesthetic effect numbs the fish and reduces their mobility, facilitating their capture without the use of nets.


The use of jambu outside the culinary and popular sphere began in the treatment of xerostomia, a health condition known as dry mouth syndrome. Jambu extract has been found to stimulate the salivary glands, providing relief to people suffering from this condition, caused by opioid or radiation treatments, or also affected by metabolic disorders.


Its use as a topical anesthetic (or pre-anesthetic) is known in dentistry, soon expanding to cosmetology, where it is used in lotions or ointments for depilatory procedures or application of tattoos and micropigmentations. Spilanthol works by paralyzing peripheral sensory nerve endings and interrupting the transmission of pain sensitivity between nerve endings (nociceptors) and the brain.


This anesthetic action has been used in some anti-wrinkle dermocosmetic products for the immediate and temporary paralysis of some facial muscles which, prevented from contracting, do not express wrinkles or stretch marks on the skin. For this reason, spilanthol was elevated by the marketing departments of these manufacturers to the informal status of “vegetable botox”, in reference to the botulinum toxin used in aesthetic treatments as a systemic muscle paralyzer.


Still in the cosmetic sphere, jambu extract can be used as an antiseptic or deodorant, to prevent hair loss and even giving the skin a soft touch, in addition to preventing the appearance of spots or freckles.


Interestingly, one of the most popular applications of spilanthol is in the erotic products market, in gels that cause numbness or a tingling sensation in the mucous membranes of the body. Some studies also point out that jambu extract is capable of causing an increase in sexual desire, excitement and satisfaction in individuals of both sexes by increasing the levels of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH), and testosterone.


Other studies analyze the application of spilanthol in drugs for its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, antimutagenic and anticancer effects. Furthermore, the antiparasitic, insecticidal and larvicidal actions of the jambu extract indicate possible uses in veterinary medicine and agriculture.


Foreign researchers show great interest in this plant and its commercial potential, having registered 15 patents for use in the United States and 34 in Europe.
