‘Imaginary meal’ tricks the body into losing weight

January 5, 2015
Ronald Evans, director of Salk’s Gene Expression Laboratory, has developed a compound called fexaramine that acts like an imaginary meal: It tricks the body into reacting as if it has consumed calories, and could lead to an effective obesity and diabetes treatment in humans (credit: Courtesy of the Salk Institute for Biological Studies)
Salk researchers have developed an entirely new type of pill that tricks the body into thinking it has consumed calories, causing it to burn fat.
The compound effectively stopped weight gain, lowered cholesterol, controlled blood sugar, and minimized inflammation in mice, making it an excellent candidate for a rapid transition into human clinical trials.
Unlike most diet pills on the market, this new pill, calledfexaramine, doesn’t dissolve into the blood like appetite suppressants or caffeine-based diet drugs, but remains in the intestines, causing fewer side effects./.../
