What causes sugar cravings?

Sugar cravings start in the taste buds. Bite into something sweet, and the sugar molecules activate the sweet taste buds on your tongue. This immediately signals your brain and triggers cravings for more. The sugar in just one bite can activate your sweet taste buds for up to 30 minutes and your cravings can last just as long. Blocking the sweet taste buds on the tongue can break this cycle.

Does Sweet Defeat work for sugar substitutes and artificial sweeteners?

Yes, Sweet Defeat is effective for all natural, added, and artificial sweeteners, including stevia, sucralose (Splenda), and aspartame (Equal, NutraSweet).

Gymnema sylvestre is a leafy vine that grows in India, Africa, and Australia and has been used for centuries in Eastern and Ayurvedic medicine. One of the known effects of its leaves and extracts is its ability to temporarily suppress the taste of sweetness.

What is sorbitol?

Sorbitol is a sugar alcohol that our bodies produce naturally when breaking down sugar. It's commonly used as a low-calorie sweetener in chewing gum, candies, toothpaste, and mouthwash, in part because it does not promote tooth decay. The sorbitol in Sweet Defeat is derived from fresh peaches and is completely natural.
