If you are considering losing weight, first you should consult with your doctor to see if what you have in mind is not going to be harmful to your overall mental and physical health!  There are three areas to take into consideration: natural stimulants, chemical stimulants, and lifestyle changes.  This article will focus on natural stimulants.

You can find in various vitamins and certain pills what is considered to be natural appetite stimulants

so you might have to take a good look at the vitamins you are taking.


Check for Thiamine, you would not want to purposely exclude it from your food sources, but you would not want to consume an overabundance of Vitamin A, Zinc, Niacin, Biotin, and B-complex vitamins.  Since natural appetite stimulants work slower in your body than synthetic stimulants, you could consume them less frequently to avoid triggering your appetite.

Also, be aware that organic vitamins, teas, liquids or powdered minerals are part of the group of natural appetite stimulants.


Here are some examples:

 Turmeric Peppermint Tea Dandelion Blessed Thistle
Ginseng Yogurt Herbal Tea Saw Palmetto Berries
Devil’s Claw Grapefruit Cranberry Juice Rosewood Aromatherapy
Red Currants Apricots Kale Collards
Peaches Res/Green Mustard Watercress Sorrei
Fennel Wheatgrass juice Cinnamon Cardamom
Alfalfa Seeds/Sprouts Ginger Rosemary Thyme

Natural appetite stimulants have certain characteristics or qualities

which help explain the “how” part of the equation.  Some help digest food faster, which would potentially increase a person’s appetite.  Then some stimulate the production of digestive juices within the intestines.

Also, there are some that have anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties which in turn would put a person’s system back “on-line” to operating at a more optimal state, therefore enhancing their appetite.

Certain natural food sources like milk and bananas contain a certain level of sugar and can bring about an enhanced appetite.

Fiber continues to be “the talk of the town” when it comes to overall health.  When a person takes a moderate amount on a daily basis it helps to stimulate the appetite. Therefore, if a person takes enough it could trigger a sensation of feeling fuller, and thereby curbing the appetite.

Let’s take for example consuming a lot of bread, which can lead to a spike in the blood sugar, which in turn leads to a rise in insulin, and then the insulin absorbs the glucose into the cells where the energy is stored, and the excess glucose is converted to fat and stored (weight gain!).

Your blood sugar will drop rapidly after the insulin has done its job.  Now the body will send signals to release hormones, because the body will feel like it needs food again to raise the blood sugar level and the cycle will repeat again, with the end result of excess glucose converted to fat and stored (weight gain!).

So, better food choices, along with better supplement choices, and portion control can help a person keep the potential for weight gain in check!
