Diet gum makes the body release a peptide hormone that sends a signal to the brain that food has been consumed. Therefore, the desire to eat is curtailed when dieting.
Diet gum is made from potato skins and also contains Slendesta and African mango. The combination of ingredients has proven effective in weight loss.
Diet gum is sugar-free, and as of 2015 is offered in peppermint flavors. The gum can be found at health food stores and some supermarket chains.
