Flower Extract Found to Curb Hunger During Fasting

Flower Extract Found to Curb Hunger During Fasting

The intermittent fasting diet requires that you eat within a certain window of time and fast during the rest of the day. This diet can help you eat fewer calories and may help you lose belly fat. A recent study has found that a bitter hop flower extract from New Zealand may help curb hunger during an intermittent fasting diet.

Participants in the study included 30 adult men who fasted for 24 hours one day a week for three weeks. During the fasting period, they were given 250 mg of flower extract, 100 mg of flower extract, or a placebo at 16 and 20 hours into the fasting period.

The researchers found that participants in both flower extract groups had up to a 10% decrease in hunger from 18 to 24 hours into the fasting period. The placebo group experienced an increase in hunger at lunchtime, but the flower extract groups did not.

The study was conducted by researchers from The New Zealand Institute for Plant and Food Research Limited. It was published online ahead of print on November 13, 2019 in the journal Nutrients.
