Blood Sugar Premier

There was a study done in 2009 that used brain imaging Blood Sugar Premier Review techniques, in order to prove that people who are obese not only experienced similar behaviors but also developed the same brain reactions that drug addicts experience. They study observed the PET scans of obese and normal weight individuals, looking specifically for dopamine receptors and counting them.Dopamine remember, is the chemical in our brains that sends us that 'feel good, ahh' feeling. The result concluded that obese people had fewer dopamine receptors, and worse, the more obese the individual was the fewer receptors they had. The study further came to the conclusion that the brains of obese people looked almost identical to drug addicts, both having fewer dopamine receptors than normal subjects. This study proved that overeating can lower the number of dopamine receptors in the brain. This is why people who overeat are driven to keep consuming foods that are high in fat, sugar and salt, because eating those foods prompts the release of dopamine. Since they have crippled their ability to produce it naturally on their own, the chemical addiction becomes evident when the overeating begins.
