Could Sugarest put an end to your sweet tooth?

Filed under: , ,

The makers of a new gum called Sugarest are promising to put an end to your cravings for sweets, at least for 45 minutes at a time. The tasteless gum, which has an active ingredient called gymnema sylvestre works by numbing the area of the tongue that tastes sweets for up to 45 minutes, helping dieter's say no when their sweet tooth tries to take charge.

Doctor's warn that the gum isn't a cure-all for those struggling with their weight, and are concerned that as more people start using it, safety issues may arise. Sugarest acknowledges that the gum itself is not a diet, just a tool for those who can't seem to control their sugar cravings.
