Contrary to popular belief, glucose, a simple sugar, doesn't necessarily lead to weight gain. In fact, it can actually curb appetite - the opposite effect of its infamous "evil twin," fructose.
This surprising fact stems from a key difference in how our brains utilize these sugars. The brain relies solely on glucose for energy. When we consume fructose, it doesn't fulfill this crucial need, leaving our brains unsatisfied and triggering cravings for more food.
This explains why table sugar, which is half fructose and half glucose (sucrose), isn't as effective at suppressing appetite as pure glucose. Additionally, sucrose requires digestion and processing to break down into its component sugars, further delaying its ability to satiate the brain.
This is where ChewFull comes in. Its readily absorbable glucose bypasses digestion and delivers a direct energy boost to the brain, satiating hunger sooner and potentially reducing overall food intake during meals.
