Sensa was designed to work with your sense of smell to help trigger sensory specific satiety. The scientific principle behind Sensa is remarkably simple. As you eat, smell and taste, receptors send messages to your brain which release hormones that tell your body it’s time to stop eating. This is a phenomenon we call sensory specific satiety. By enhancing smell, Sensa tastants were designed to help speed up the process and trigger your “I feel full” signal, so you eat less and feel more satisfied.
Sensa works with your body’s natural impulses, rather than against them, there are no feelings of hunger or intense cravings. Over the course of 25 years, Sensa creator Dr. Alan Hirsch has conducted ongoing research on the effects of smell and taste on eating habits, ultimately leading him to spearhead one of the largest studies ever conducted on weight loss.
Over a 6 month period, 1,436 women and men sprinkled scented, flavorless “tastant” crystals on everything they ate. Participants were instructed not to change their existing diet or exercise program. The 1,436 people in the treatment group who completed the program lost an average of 30.5 pounds, nearly 15% of their total body weight. Those in the control group lost only 2 pounds, on average.
Dr. Alan Hirsch, creator of the Sensa Weight-Loss System, has appeared on Dateline NBC, The Oprah Winfrey Show, CNN, The CBS Early Show, Good Morning America and Extra TV. Since its launch, the Sensa weight-loss system has been reviewed in hundreds of local, national and international media sources and is now available at Lucky Vitamin.
