Common types of Weight Managment Compounds
There are several oral medications that can help in your weight management program. It is believed they can help suppress appetite by dialing down the brain’s “reward center”, thereby decreasing the quantity of dopamine released by the body creates when you eat.
Bupropion: is a drug known as an NDRI (norepinephrine-dopamine reuptake inhibitor). It prevents the brain from absorbing norepinephrine (a.k.a. adrenaline) and dopamine (otherwise known as the feel-good hormone). This is similar to how nicotine patches help with smokers, by helping reduce the excitement our body gets from food.
LDN: otherwise known as (low dose naltrexone) appears to contribute to weight loss by a number of mechanisms. Some studies have shown that LDN may help curb your appetite by reducing the appeal of food. As a result, you start losing your cravings for food. LDN may also aid in the production of lean muscle mass by increasing the bodies growth hormones. Insulin resistance is another issue associated with weight gain, obesity, and a number of other diseases like diabetes, heart attacks, and strokes. LDN helps reduce insulin resistance therefore, not only does it have the potential to help with weight loss, but it may also address other potential diseases!
Supplements and vitamins: can be added to your oral weight loss medications to help with deficiencies found by doctor blood work. Many side effects of low vitamin d for example can have an in direct impact on weight loss. Supplementing your oral medications with vitamin d can decrease fatigue and increase time slept.
