Crave Control by IP Formulas contains key amino acids and precursors (5-HTP, Glutamine, Tyrosine and dl- Phenylalanine) plus vitamins B6 and C that help convert these amino acids into brain neurotransmitters involved in appetite modulation, cravings for carbohydrates, drugs and alcohol, energy levels and mood. Chromium picolinate is present to aid in blood glucose management.
Crave Control contains key “neuro-nutrients” that supply the brain with raw materials required for normal neurotransmitter production. With neurotransmitters at normal levels, cravings become fewer and weaker, thinking is clearer, and feelings are more positive and focused. Sleep improves.
Crave Control contains targeted amino acids specifically needed for manufacture of dopamine, epinephrine, norepinephrine, and serotonin. These neurotransmitters enable “brain reward” activity. By providing nutrients for replenishing neurotransmitter stores, Crave Control helps to restore brain chemistry balance and related feelings of well-being and satisfaction. In addicted individuals, brain neurotransmitter levels may be so depleted that an diet alone cannot provide the amino acids necessary to restore balance.
D-phenylalanine works by preventing the enzymes that break down the “opioids” in the brain. This allows for more opioid (endorphin) activity; therefore, allowing for a calmer, happier you. The more endorphins that are present, the more sensitive, compassionate and solution-oriented you become; the more connected and in-touch your thoughts become.
L-glutamine builds the neurotransmitter GABA (Gamma Amino Butyric Acid), which is the major calming neurotransmitter in the brain. Those with low GABA levels have difficulty “turning their brain off” — No GABA, no calm, no sleep.
5HTP (5-hydroxy tryptophan) builds the neurotransmitter serotonin. This neurotransmitter is extremely important in balancing our sleep patterns and filtering all sensory input, so the brain is not overloaded or overwhelmed by excessive sensory information it receives. Optimal levels of serotonin also help us to be more hopeful, optimistic, patient and more able to respond thoughtfully and carefully. Low serotonin levels contribute to carbohydrate craving.
