Weight loss mouth spray shows potential

NEWS

Easy solutions for weight loss have sprouted up over the years with mixed response, and the latest trick may surprise you. A group of researchers have developed a mouth spray that may help people feel full and lead to weight loss.

According to research published in the Journal of Neuroscience, researchers from the University of Florida have produced a mouth spray that includes the chemical peptide YY, a gut hormone produced after eating that make one feel full. The researchers claim that using the spray a half an hour before eating will make one eat less and feel fuller faster.

While other weight-loss oral sprays are currently available for consumers, the researchers say this one is different because it is backed by science. However, more research would need to be performed on humans, as these initial trials were conducted on mice, to prove the effectiveness of the spray.
