Emotional eating is a huge factor in weight gain for many people, triggered by chemicals in the brain. According to Life Extension, compulsive eating occurs in 30 percent of obese women, though its prevalence in the general population reportedly exceeds even this number. ”You crave carbohydrates. Why is that?” asked Dr. Oz on Monday’s show. “When take carbohydrates and put them up in the mouth you are actually turning on chemicals in the brain… They turn on this pleasure sensation, this craving you have, and they give you the satisfaction from doing this and relief.”
A saffron extract supplement will go into your intestinal system, go into your brain and stimulate the same feeling an emotional eater would get from eating, say, carbohydrates. “It gives you that feeling of relief without that short-term hit from the carbohydrates. So, when you see food, you don’t have to put it in; you don’t feel addicted to put it in there. You have the ability to say ‘no.’”
