An independent, double-blind placebo-controlled study confirms a weight loss of 27.5 pounds in 6-months with the use of Sensa Weight-Loss System. The Sensa Weight-Loss System launched in July 2008 as the first weight-loss system that uses patent-pending Tastants that induce satiety when sprinkled on food. Sensa is based on the 20 years of research and multiple studies conducted by board-certified neurologist and psychiatrist, Dr. Alan Hirsch – including one of the largest non-prescription weight-loss studies ever conducted where 1436 people lost an average of 30.5 pounds in 6 months. The results of this new study complement the earlier research of Dr. Hirsch.
Part one of the independent study was a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study. Both the study administrators and participants were blinded as to the contents of the placebo and test product, which were identically packaged and randomly chosen by the participants. In this manner, 32 male and 46 female overweight adults were divided into two groups and instructed to sprinkle monthly sweet and salty shakers with each meal for six months.
Participants were also instructed not to change patterns in their normal diet or physical activity to ensure that any weight loss results could be attributable solely to the test product. Multiple data points, such as BMI, total body water, lean mass and fat mass, were recorded during the study to indicate the relationship between weight loss and time. Data recorded on day 0, and at the end of months 1, 3, and 6 were used for analysis.
The study found that subjects in the test group demonstrated an average weight loss of 27.5 pounds over six months, while subjects in the placebo group had an average weight gain of .34 pounds. The results of this independent study confirm the hypothesis of Dr. Hirsch’s original study – it is the actual Tastants, as opposed to the act of sprinkling onto ones food that induces weight loss.
Part two of the study involved a post-treatment written user evaluation by subjects in the test group and placebo group. Among other findings, subjects in the test group reported the following positive results regarding Sensa:
- 100% strongly agreed that their weight loss was a direct result of using Sensa Tastants.
- 96% strongly agreed that they felt full faster during each meal as a result of using Sensa Tastants.
- 91% strongly agreed that they felt they ate smaller portions while using Sensa Tastants.
- 96% strongly agreed they felt they ate less throughout the day while using Sensa Tastants.
- 91% strongly agreed that Sensa was an effective weight loss program.
- 100% strongly agreed that they experienced no negative side effects as a result of using Sensa Tastants.
“It has always been my goal to continue the research on the sense of smell and taste with weight loss,” says Dr. Hirsch. “This latest study has reaffirmed the findings of my many years of research – the Tastants in the Sensa Weight-Loss System are a highly effective way to facilitate weight loss and help the millions of Americans who struggle with it daily.”
Based on over 20 years of his research linking human olfactory senses to appetite and overeating, Dr. Alan Hirsch developed the Sensa Weight-Loss System. Sensa consists of patent-pending blends of scented Tastants that you sprinkle on food, and are designed to stimulate the olfactory senses and trigger satiety. Sensa has become a leading weight-loss tool to encourage portion control without restrictive dieting, stimulants or pills. http://www.trysensa.com
