Safe,no magic bullet: Sort of sensory fooling "tastant", flakes in different "flavors"/smells. No good studies, no good data. Not cheap. Until more and better data support its use and effects, i wouldn't recommend it.

Sounds safe: The ingredients seem safe though it will not likely help with weight loss. Over-the-counter weight loss aids (and prescription weight loss aids) do not lead to sustained weight loss, have significant potential side-effects, and have little to no clinical utility. Otc suppliments are not regulated for content and not tested for safety.

Sensa prob OK: A lit search seems to show that tastants (sensa) might actually have some effect on brain to reduce hunger. The study shown looks like a poster but not published (too bad). Still, i will prob try in some patients. Thanks.
