Lovidia FAQs

LOVIDIA HUNGER CONTROL FORMULA

What is LOVIDIA Hunger Control Formula?
LOVIDIA Hunger Control Formula is an innovative, all-natural dietary supplement that has been clinically proven to reduce hunger. LOVIDIA is based on Gut Sensory Modulation science.

What is Gut Sensory Modulation (GSM)?
GSM was discovered by scientists who observed and studied hormonal changes that occur following gastric bypass surgery, specifically, higher levels of the hormones GLP-1 and PYY. These hormones, released by intestinal L-cells, act as satiety signals to the brain. GSM mimics those effects, by delivering a proprietary blend of natural ingredients to the lower gut where there is an abundance of L-cells.

How does LOVIDIA work?
LOVIDIA Hunger Control Formula is specially formulated to deliver natural food ingredients past the stomach to stimulate L-cells in the lower gut to release more of the satiety hormones, GLP-1 and PYY, than would be released by food alone. The hormones GLP-1 and PYY tell your brain “I’m full” helping you to feel satisfied sooner and eat less.

Is LOVIDIA FDA approved?
LOVIDIA Hunger Control Formula is a dietary supplement made with ingredients that are designated by the FDA as GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe). Dietary supplements do not require approval by FDA. LOVIDIA Hunger Control Formula is manufactured in certified cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practices) facilities.

What are the active ingredients in LOVIDIA Hunger Control Formula?
The LOVIDIA proprietary ingredient blend includes: Rebaudioside A (Stevia Leaf Extract), L-Glutamine, L-Leucine, lysine-hydrochloride and pomegranate fruit extract.

What are LOVIDIA’s Ingredients?
LOVIDIA’s patented blend contains all-natural, non-GMO ingredients that are gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan. The blend includes Stevia leaf extract, L-glutamine, L-leucine, lysine hydrochloride, and pomegranate fruit extract. Other ingredients include dextrose, sodium alginate, modified cellulose, silicone dioxide, magnesium stearate, medium chain triglycerides, oleic acid, glycerin and stearic acid. All ingredients are designated as GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe).

Is LOVIDIA Hunger Control Formula safe?
LOVIDIA is made with a natural blend of ingredients that works with your body’s natural hunger control process. In clinical testing, LOVIDIA has been shown to have a similar side-effect profile as placebo.

Does LOVIDIA interact with any medications?
There are no known interactions with any medicines but before starting any dietary supplement, you should speak with your primary healthcare provider, especially if you have known medical conditions.

How do I take LOVIDIA?
Swallow the tablet whole with a glass of water. Never break, crush, or chew the tablet; doing so, will affect the release timing of the ingredients.

The LOVIDIA tablet releases its natural ingredients faster than LOVIDIA. XR’s ingredients, typically in 1–4 hours. As a result, the LOVIDIA tablet can be taken prior to a meal

In our clinical studies, LOVIDIA was taken 1 to 2 hours before each of the two largest meals of the day, typically lunch and dinner. We recommend that you begin with this dosing schedule since it works for most people. However, some customers have reported that a different dosing schedule works better for them, so feel free to adjust to the schedule that works best for you.

When should LOVIDIA be taken?
In our clinical studies, LOVIDIA was taken 1 to 2 hours before each of the two largest meals of the day, typically lunch and dinner. We recommend that you begin with this dosing schedule since it works for most people. However, some customers have reported that a different dosing schedule works better for them, so feel free to adjust to the schedule that works best for you. Always swallow Lovidia whole with a glass of water. Never cut, crush, or break a Lovidia tablet; doing so will affect the release timing of the ingredients.

How long will it take for LOVIDIA to start working?
Everybody is different. Some feel LOVIDIA Hunger Control Formula working right away. For others, it can take a few days to feel the effects and, on some days, you may feel the effect stronger than on other days. This is natural since you don’t eat the same foods every day and your level of physical activity varies day-to-day. Lovidia is more effective on a low-carb diet than on a high-carb diet.

How will I know that LOVIDIA is working?
People eat because they are hungry but also due to emotional triggers such as stress and boredom. LOVIDIA doesn’t affect emotional factors that may drive overeating; Lovidia lowers hunger, so if hunger is your major issue, Lovidia can help you. It is important for you to be aware of the range of hunger feelings that you experience. For that reason, we have created a short video to help you recognize the different levels of hunger. After watching the video, you might consider practicing hunger awareness by taking Lovidia for a few days while paying close attention to your hunger level and then stop taking Lovidia for a few days. This should help you “feel” the difference. In addition to reducing hunger, customers have reported decreased cravings and less snacking.

Will LOVIDIA help me lose weight?
LOVIDIA Hunger Control Formula is a tool that can help you lose weight. It is not a magic pill. On a diet, you reduce your caloric intake which increases hunger and increased hunger is the major reason diets fail. LOVIDIA can help you be more successful on any diet. LOVIDIA can also help you lose weight when you are not dieting if you reduce your carbohydrate intake and increase your level of physical activity. If you are not consciously reducing your calories, the rate of weight loss will be slower.

Should LOVIDIA be paired with a certain diet?
LOVIDIA is a useful tool that can help on any diet but works best when paired with low-carb diets.

Is LOVIDIA safe for children?
Persons under 18 years of age were not included in our clinical studies so we cannot recommend LOVIDIA for anyone under eighteen.

Is LOVIDIA made from natural ingredients?
The active ingredients in LOVIDIA are natural and classified by FDA as GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe). Some of the “other ingredients” in LOVIDIA that are used for binding purposes and for the tablet coating are not natural.

Can I stop taking LOVIDIA once I reach my desired weight?
There are no long-term effects from LOVIDIA so you can start or stop taking LOVIDIA as often as you like. Most people take LOVIDIA on a regular schedule, but some just take it in situations when their hunger is most challenging.

LOVIDIA XR HUNGER CONTROL FORMULA

What is LOVIDIA XR Hunger Control Formula?
LOVIDIA XR is a 2nd generation product based on the same GSM technology as regular LOVIDIA. XR contains the same ingredients as regular Lovidia but with the addition of the herbal extract, berberine. The XR tablet releases its ingredients much more slowly than regular LOVIDIA.

How do I take LOVIDIA XR?
Take 1 tablet with breakfast and 1 tablet with lunch. Swallow the tablet whole with plenty of water. Do not break, crush, or chew the tablet.
The LOVIDIA XR tablet releases its natural ingredients much more slowly than regular LOVIDIA. XR’s ingredient-release takes place over 3 – 12+ hours compared to LOVIDIA’S release-time of 1 – 4 hours. As a result, a LOVIDIA XR tablet taken with breakfast begins working about mid-to-late morning and a tablet taken at lunch will start to take effect by dinnertime. Average digestion times vary by individual so feel free to adjust to the schedule that works best for you.

How does LOVIDIA XR work?
LOVIDIA Hunger Control Formula is specially formulated to deliver natural food ingredients past the stomach to stimulate L-cells in the lower gut to release more of the satiety hormones, GLP-1 and PYY, than would be released by food alone. The hormones GLP-1 and PYY tell your brain “I’m full” helping you to feel satisfied sooner and eat less.

What is the difference between LOVIDIA and LOVIDIA XR?
There are two major differences; the active ingredients are different and the ingredient release-time in the body is different. XR contains the same ingredients as regular Lovidia but also contains one additional ingredient called berberine. Berberine is an herb, used in Chinese medicine for centuries, that has been shown in 3rd party clinical studies to increase the release of GLP-1 and PYY. The Lovidia XR tablet also releases its ingredients much more slowly than regular Lovidia. XR’s ingredient-release takes place over 3 – 12+ hours compared to Lovidia’s release-time of 1 – 4 hours.

Does LOVIDIA or Lovidia XR work better?
Based on customer feedback, XR has a stronger effect than regular LOVIDIA for about 4 out of 5 people. This may be due to the addition of berberine or the longer ingredient-release time, or both. But, everyone is different, and we have many customers that prefer regular LOVIDIA. We also have some customers that use both products daily.

Is there any difference in the side-effect profiles for LOVIDIA vs. LOVIDIA XR?
Some people have reported bloating and nausea due to the berberine in XR and this has also been reported in some of the 3rd party clinical studies of berberine. If you have an overly sensitive gastro-intestinal system, we recommend starting with one XR tablet per day for the first week to make sure you are tolerating the berberine and not experiencing any GI side effects.

If you have an overly sensitive GI system, we recommend starting with one XR tablet per day for the first week to make sure you are tolerating the berberine and not experiencing any GI side upset.
