As I write this, I am desperately craving a double bacon cheeseburger, so maybe I’m the perfect candidate for this weight loss shot.
The shot has a protein called GDF15, which naturally curve the appetite and cravings in humans and animals. GDF15 binds to neurons in your intestines in your stomach and intestines, sending a signal to your brain saying I DO NOT WANT TO EAT.
Here’s an excerpt of the science from New Scientist:
“Injecting the protein into mice revealed that it binds to neurons in the stomach and intestines. These gut nerve cells send signals to the area postrema, a part of the brain known to reduce appetite and change dietary tastes.”
When mice were given the GDF15 protein, they held food in their stomach twice as long, making them feel fuller.
