LOVIDIA Frequently Asked Questions

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 Hunger Control Formula is based on Gut Sensory Modulation (GSM) science.

How does LOVIDIA Hunger Control Formula 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 are the active ingredients in LOVIDIA Hunger Control Blend?
The LOVIDIA Regular proprietary ingredient blend includes: Rebaudioside A (stevia leaf extract), L-Glutamine, L-Leucine, lysine-hydrochloride and pomegranate fruit extract.  LOVIDIA XR contains the same ingredients as LOVIDIA Regular plus the herb berberine.

Are there other ingredients in LOVIDIA Hunger Control Formula?
In addition to the LOVIDIA hunger control proprietary blend, the LOVIDIA Hunger Control Formula contains dextrose, sodium alginate, modified cellulose, silicone dioxide, magnesium stearate, medium chain triglycerides, oleic acid, glycerin and stearic acid.  These ingredients are tablet binding agents and provide the enteric coating that protects the core tablet from stomach acid.  These ingredients are non-GMO, gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan and FDA-designated as Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS).

What is Gut Sensory Modulation (GSM)?
GSM is an emerging science, 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 targets L-cells in the lower gut with natural ingredients to produce a wide range of beneficial effects.

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

Will LOVIDIA help me lose weight?
LOVIDIA Hunger Control Formula is a tool that can help you lose weight. On a diet, you reduce your caloric intake which increases hunger.  This is the major reason that 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 caloric intake, the rate of weight loss will be slower.
