Sensa is not proven to be a reliable weight loss product, according to Reinventing Aging. It makes scientifically unsubstantiated claims to help weight loss, and the company went under fire in 2014 for it's misleading advertising and lack of scientific evidence, reports the Federal Trade Commission.
Sensa, or The Sprinkle Diet, advertises a food additive that is supposed to enhance food's smell and taste, leaving the buyer feeling fuller faster without actually dieting. The Sensa parent company claims to help consumers lose an excess of 30 pounds in 6 months, without making any actual changes to personal diet or exercise and states that the product is "clinically proven to work," However, the FTC case showed that the study cited was not peer-reviewed. Consumer reviews on Amazon,com are overwhelmingly negative, and the FTC case in 2014 shed light on the unsubstantiated claims used by the parent company's advertising department.
