Pills that mimic food have been developed in the USA

A group of researchers at the Salk Institute (USA), led by Ronald Evans, Director of the Gene Expression Laboratory, has developed a new type of pill for obese people. The tablets are called fexaramin.

The new product helps to stop weight gain, lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Its principle of action is based on deceiving the body, which, having received a portion of pills, “thinks” that it has consumed calories and “gives the command” to burn fat.

Unlike many diet pills, fexaramine does not dissolve in the blood, but, like regular food, remains in the intestines without causing side effects. According to R. Evans, this pill is an imaginary food for the body.

And then everything happens according to the same scheme as when eating ordinary food - the body begins to free up space for the intake of a significant amount of food, but since there are no real calories, the appetite is not aroused.

In the course of research, scientists have found that the human body reacts to fexaramine by preparing for the influx of food, while not causing the release of bile acids involved in digestion. Also, the level of sugar in the blood does not change, and the body begins to burn fat in anticipation of new portions of food.
