Researchers in the UK have recently developed what some would call a miracle supplement. The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition published the study from scientists at Imperial College London and the University of Glasgow in April of 2016. The study of the new supplement, called inulin-propionate ester, was done with 20 participants and showed a decrease in their cravings for high-calorie foods. Though the supplement is still in its early trials, researchers found that it also made participants eat smaller portions. The supplement is based on a molecule produced by gut bacteria that signals to your brain that you've had enough to eat. We've collected some awesome videos on this topic. Watch them now to learn more.
