A Breakthrough in Weight ManagementSlimBalm Infographic

SlimBalm is the world’s first and only lip balm that helps curb your appetite and control your weight. The intricate mix of natural essential oils found in SlimBalm temporarily reprograms your sense of taste and smell reducing the appeal and emotional satisfaction of food, creating a feeling of fullness. By using SlimBalm throughout the day, you will eat fewer calories and shed excess pounds and inches.

SlimBalm targets specialized regions of your brain known as the Feeding and Satiety (Fullness) Centers. As its name implies, your Feeding Center, mainly through taste and smell, causes you to feel hunger signaling you to eat. Your Satiety Center, on the other hand, is that part of your brain which gives you a sense of being full and tells you that it is time to stop eating. Your Satiety Center interprets chemical messages from the essential oils in SlimBalm as signals that you are full, so you refrain from eating.

How SlimBalm Works

The essential oils in SlimBalm contain a powerful local anesthetic, natural stimulants, and other natural compounds that make your brain think it’s full. SlimBalm works quickly because it is absorbed directly into your system through your lips (transdermal) and nose (aromatic). As the aromas waft through your nostrils and the molecules seep deeply into the specialized tissues in your lips, SlimBalm temporarily inhibits your smell and taste nerves. You will know it’s working when you start to feel a tingling sensation!

The reprogramming of your taste, smell, and satiety centers seen with SlimBalm represents a scientific breakthrough that promises to be an effective new strategy for reducing appetite, decreasing food intake, and losing weight.

That is because, according to aroma therapy expert, Alan Hirsch, M.D., “inhaling odors has a direct effect on the satiety center in the brain, which is the area that tells your body when you’ve had enough to eat.” It is in this way that inhaling aromas can help you lose weight.

Moreover, research has shown that appetite and the sense of taste and smell are connected. For example, your sense of smell canactually trigger feelings of fullness in the Satiety Center even without food ever reaching your stomach. The fancy term for this process is “sensory-specific satiety”. This is the likely mechanism behind the well-known phenomenon that beyond a certain age, body weight tends to decrease due to a normal decline in senses of taste and smell.

Taste and smell are perceived by multiple receptors found on the oral and nasal epithelial cells. They send signals directly through nerve pathways right into the brain’s “Satiety Centers” (the cortex, the amygdala and hypothalamus). With lightning-fast computer-like actions, they process nerve and sensory signals, hormones, neurotransmitters and other bio-data. They determine how pleasant a food is, its reward value, whether you have appetite for it, if you feel full, and signal whether you need to eat or not eat. When you block these sensory nerve signals and alter the olfactory and taste perception of food, appetite is immediately reduced, with a corresponding physiological response of ingesting less food yet with a feeling of satiety. But most importantly, … you consume fewer calories and may lose your excess weight and inches.

What’s in SlimBalm

Peppermint Oil

Peppermint oil is an essential oil extracted from the leaves of Mentha piperita. It is known for its tonic, stimulant, anesthetic, analgesic, decongestant, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. The sweet scent of Peppermint oil is one of the most powerful aromas in triggering the feeling of fullness and curbing appetite. A study on the effects of peppermint scent on appetite control found that study participants inhaling Peppermint essential oil were less likely to feel hungry and had fewer food cravings than individuals who didn’t inhale Peppermint essential oil. Subjects exposed to Peppermint oil aroma consumed nearly 3000 fewer total calories from saturated fat, total fat and sugar each week. That’s about 23% fewer calories based on an 1800 calorie a day diet. Test subjects also rated their hunger level significantly lower during the time they inhaled the aroma of peppermint.

Liquid Menthol

Menthol is an organic compound extracted from Peppermint oil with anesthetic and counterirritant qualities. Up to 70% of Peppermint oil is comprised of menthol. Menthol creates a distinct cooling sensation when inhaled and applied to the skin. Its local anesthetic and stimulating actions can block sensory ne

rve signals, changing your neurosensory perceptions to the taste and aroma of food to suppress appetite, prevent overeating and help with weight loss. 

Clove Oil

Clove essential oil is extracted from the evergreen clove tree, which grows mainly in tropical countries. It has a strong spicy scent and produces a skin-warming sensation. Eugenol, the main component of Clove oil, has extensive documentation for its as analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anti-stress, antimicrobial and stimulating effects. Eugenol inhibits sensory nerve impulses that decrease the sense of taste and smell, and reprograms neurosensory perception to reduce appetite and eating.

Grapefruit Essential Oil

Grapefruit oil is an essential oil extracted from the rind of the fruit of the Citrus paradise. It has a sweet citrus scent. Grapefruit oil is known for its antimicrobial and antioxidant effects. Inhaling the scent of grapefruit affects autonomic nerves causing body fat to breakdown. The scent of Grapefruit oil and its active component, limonene, has been shown to reduce appetite, decrease food intake and lower the body weight of test animals.

Pepper Oil

Black pepper oil is an essential oil extracted from the fruit (peppercorns) of the Piper nigrum plant. It has a warm, spicy, peppery scent. Black pepper oil is known for its stimulating, analgesic, anesthetic and antiseptic effects. The active ingredient in pepper that gives pepper its distinctive taste and odor is piperine. Piperine alters G-protein coupled receptors and decreases sensory signals of tastes and smells that alter neurosensory perception to reduce appetite and help with weight loss. Researchers also found that piperine disrupts the activity of genes that regulate the formation of new fat cells and may suppress body fat accumulation.

Bergamot Oil

Bergamot oil is an essential oil extracted from the rind of bergamot oranges, the fruit of Citrus aurantium. It has a sweet citrus scent. Bergamot oil is known for its analgesic, anti-inflammatory, uplifting, anti- depressant and antiseptic effects. Close to 60% of Bergamot oil is composed of limonene. Bergamot oil can stimulate the endocrine system to produce relaxed and calm feelings to combat emotional stress linked to overeating. The scent of limonene was shown to reduce appetite, decrease food intake and lower the body weight of test animals.

Cinnamon Leaf Oil

Cinnamon leaf is an essential oil extracted from the leaves of Cinnamomum zeylanicum, a tree native to Southeast Asia. It has a warm, spicy scent. Cinnamon leaf oil is known for its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. Its major component, eugenol, is also the major constituent of Clove oil. Eugenol inhibits sensory nerve impulses that decrease the sense of taste and smell and alters neurosensory perception to reduce appetite and help with weight loss.

Camphor

Camphor is an essential oil extracted from the leaves, roots or stems of the Cinnamomum camphora tree. Camphor is known for its anesthetic, stimulant, antispasmodic, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and disinfectant properties. Camphor excites and desensitizes sensory nerves that contribute to SlimBalm’s unique neurosensory effects of curbing appetite and eating.
