Sensa - Cancelled

Tuesday, May 08, 2012

I have cancelled my Sensa and found this on the web today...

Is SENSA Your Only Option for Weight Loss?
No, it isn’t. In fact, there is something better than Sensa if you’re looking to lose weight safely – Saffron Extract.

For those of you who don’t know, Saffron is a coveted natural spice used to add color and flavor to foods – it is often used in Indian and European cuisine. It is normally rather costly, and the expense is attributed to the extensive harvesting and storage labor involved.

Saffron has been used for thousands of years, and is also known to help with many ailments and medical conditions. It has even been used as an aphrodisiac. More recently though – unlike Sensa – clinical scientific studies have brought satiereal saffron extract forth as a powerful appetite suppressant that can greatly assist with weight loss by reducing food cravings.

On a recent Dr. OZ show segment, Belly Blasting Supplements, the renowned Dr. Oz himself described satiereal saffron extract as being a “miracle appetite suppressant” that will “kill your hunger” and “squash your cravings.” He went on to discuss how it works, highlighted its benefits, and even tested it on two emotional over-eaters, Martha and Devon – they lost 3 and 5 pounds respectively over a weekend.

Both women reported significant loss of hunger and lack of cravings while on the supplement, and lost weight fast as a result. This isn’t just Sensa review hearsay.

How Saffron Extract Works
As Dr. Oz Explains, compulsive eating habits stem from low levels of serotonin, a primary mood regulator of the human body. When serotonin levels are low, depression and anxiety are triggered prompting one to reach for feel-good foods – aka carbohydrates. The problem is, these foods pack on the pounds fast, so this is not ideal.

Saffron Extract is the alternative. It comes in the form of a calorie-free pill that runs through the intestinal system up into the brain, stimulating its feel-good chemicals and providing relief. As a result, you don’t experience those intense cravings for food or feel compelled to ‘snack’ at every opportunity. The result is the power to say no to food, and then of course weight loss.

Much like Sensa, It is based on the concept that one can lose weight by curbing food cravings and urges. This is no fairy dust though – it really works. 88-90MG twice daily (as recommended) and you’re on your way to a slimmer, better looking you.

Here is the website I got it from...

    I have found Safron in Chinese markets and very reasonable. I like cooking with it and notice a calm, relaxed feeling after eating foods cooked with it.

    I was just browsing Spark and looked up Saffron. Hey, up came your blog. I'm not sure I would say something like this is a scam. Lots of suppliments ARE benneficial for some people. From what I have read it does help to up your seratonin (feel good brain chemical)...and if you are an emotional eater...some people have found it helps them not to overeat (carbs, sugar, etc DO offer temporary mood boosts at a harsh cost). Yes, only diet and exercise will get you where you need to go. It is ALL about the calorie...but to say that NO suppliments ever work is very harsh. Lots of people get extra energy with green tea, etc. So if you can afford it, give it a go!

    I agree. While I love saffron and wish i could afford it, the fact is I have to eat a little less and work out a little more if i want to lose weight. Miracle cure equals scam in most cases.

    This is intriguing, but if Dr. Oz is endorsing or recommending it, is he being paid to do so? I so want this to NOT be fairy dust.

    If it worked, everyone would be on it and America's obesity epidemic would be in remission. There's also a new supplement being advertised on ABC-tv for a pill that burns your fat, claiming it's FDA-endorsed (although they are cagey and use another word similar to approved- I hope the state attorney is gunning for these shysters). Sorry, but it IS all fairy dust.
