Chewing gum to lose weight!

Chewing gum to lose weight! Tagged with:

Chewing gum to lose weight! It sounds very futuristic- but something similar is already being done with Aspirin to reduce pain and Nicotine to help people stop smoking. Aspirin and Nicotine laced gum have been available since the 1940’s-in the case of Aspirin, and in the 1980’s for Nicotine. Now a new type of gum is being developed to deliver an appetite suppressing hormone (PYY) to the stomach, for the purpose of helping people feel full after eating, and to prevent overeating at the next meal.
