Snack Attack

Snack Attack

A revolutionary new chewing gum has been released in Australia, formulated with six scientifically researched natural ingredients that have been proven to reduce hunger cravings and promote healthy weight loss. Research shows that almost all women and nearly 70% of men experience food cravings. In fact, the reason most diets fail is because people are unable to control irresistible cravings to snack between meals. Studies conducted at the University of Santiago’s School of Medicine in Spain have found that when a person’s blood sugar levels drop it causes a spike in the production of the hunger promoting hormone, Ghrelin. When Ghrelin levels rise a person experiences strong hunger cravings even though they don’t necessarily require food. To make matters worse, elevated Ghrelin levels also reduce the body’s ability to metabolise fat stores for energy. Fluctuating blood sugar levels in the body are due to two main factors; an excess consumption of energy dense food (such as sugary snacks) and an imbalance in nutrients such as biotin, thiamin, chromium and l-carnitine that are required to convert natural fat stores into daily energy.

Green coffee bean extract is proven to have significant health and weight loss benefits. The raw and unroasted bean contains a powerful antioxidant called chlorogenic acid that controls hunger cravings by having a positive effect on regulating blood sugar levels, slowing absorption of fat from food intake and inducing the use of fat as a source of energy. Research published in the Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity journal in January 2012 showed that overweight adults who supplemented with a special green coffee bean extract of chlorogenic acids at different dosages per day for 12 weeks lost an average of almost 18 pounds (8.1kg). The group of 16 adults lost 10% of their overall body weight and 4.4% of their overall body fat. Similarly, The Dr. Oz Show enlisted 100 overweight women between the ages of 35 and 49 who received either green coffee bean extract or a placebo and were instructed to not change their diet. In only two weeks, the group of women who took the green coffee bean extract lost, on average, two pounds (close to 1kg).

Snack Attack is an innovative new chewing gum that has been developed in association with leading Australian health and nutrition experts to replenish the vital nutrients needed to resist hunger cravings and help maintain daily energy. Snack Attack is sugar free and contains no artificial colours or flavours. The active ingredients include:

• Green Coffee Bean extract – obtained from decaffeinated green coffee beans, rich in chlorogenic acids and a source of caffeic and quinic acids
• Green Tea extract – rich in flavonols which are highly regarded for their antioxidant benefits and are purported to reduce fat absorption
• L-Carnitine – an amino acid that converts fatty acid into fuel the body can use for energy and also promotes growth and development
• Chromium – known to enhance the action of insulin, a hormone critical to the metabolism and storage of carbohydrate, fat, and protein in the body
• Thiamin & Biotin – essential for energy and macronutrient metabolism

How does Snack Attack work?

The secret to Snack Attack’s success is its patented triple layer active release technology that locks in the ingredients so that they are released rapidly into the digestive system as soon as the gum is chewed. Snack Attack incorporates 6 key nutrients that help control the urge to snack as well as support daily energy. Studies have shown that certain active ingredients are absorbed faster through chewing gum than with pills or capsules5 – Snack Attack provides 100% release of nutrients after just 5 minutes.

Chewing 2-4 pieces, up to a maximum of 4 pieces per day, will help beat the urge to snack between meals. In conjunction with a healthy diet and regular exercise Snack Attack is an ideal aid to help people reach their weight loss goals quickly and easily. Its delicious, long lasting mint flavor also freshens the breath and keeps teeth and gums healthy.

Each Snack Attack pack contains 8 pieces of gum, lasting 2-3 days and costs $5.95.
