Where Nature Meets Rx:
The Science of Sugarbreak

resist

By blocking our taste bud receptors from tasting anything sweet, we disrupt our reward mechanism and remove our sugar cravings.

STEP 1
Gymnemic acid, which exists in the gymnema leaf, mimics the structure of the sugar molecule.
STEP 2
Upon the strip dissolving on the tongue, the gymnemic acid molecules latch onto the taste buds and block the sweet sensors.
STEP 3
When eating something sweet, the sugar molecules are blocked from contacting the sweet sensors in your taste buds and can't be tasted.
STEP 4
This disrupts the reward impulse from being sent to your brain, stopping the sugar cravings.
