What exactly are those little sprinkles? I understand it's a product that heightens your food experience. That is, salty food tastes saltier, sugary food tastes sweeter. You're supposed to sprinkle this on your food which in turn tricks your body into thinking it's full. This leads to eating less since you feel fuller faster.

So what are the little sprinkles? Is this over the counter or prescription?

I too use Sensa but the one thing that annoys me is the fact that I paid too much for the stuff. I have been using it and it works but the one thing that ticked me off is that after I bought mine I saw a free offer ($4.95) for a 2 month supply.
I saw a link on Http:// and it was too late for me to get the better price.

Oh Well!! I am losing weight so I will not get too depressed pver it!

For all of your questions you just need to go to

It is a very informative site that talks about all aspects of Sensa.

Thomas Peek says:
The stuff does work and the best place to get some is through a free offer at

For $4.95 in shipping you can order a 2 month supply. You have to agree to autoship, after 2 months, but Sensa is banking you will fall in love with the stuff and not cancel.

You decide, what the heck, it is just $4.95!

I got the Sensa and tried it several times - each time I had mild responses of numbing and slight swelling of tongue and lips, plus a slight dizziness and headache. At first I didn't associated it with the Sensa, just thought I might have a "bug" or something like that. Waited a couple days before trying again, and again the next time, but side effects continued. Again, not really strong, but the numbing, even slight swelling of lips and tongue felt like the beginning of when I have had an anaphylatic allergic response before. I contacted Sensa customer service, they sent me the ingredients, said there was no common allergen in it, but contact my doctor. My doctor said that if I was having even slight symptoms I should not use it, because the effect could build up and set off a serious allergic reaction for me, even if that was not common for other people. So, I'm going to try to return it today. Wish me luck. Sometimes these "free trials" don't end up being free, but I hope this will be different.

I like Sensa too, been using it for the past month & I am losing weight, however you don't get two months free, you get a free trial, but still billed for it from what I read.
So, looks like it isn't any different from the three month trial I got from the sensa website.
Are you getting $ from that site??? lol! Anyway, I agree, it IS working!!
Best of luck to all of us!!

Is it a good weight loss program? Does it have immediate effects or is it a gradual thing?

Posted on May 12, 2009 12:45:31 PM PDT
I have been using sensa for about two weeks now, I havent lost any weight yet but I am amazed at how much longer I can go between meals with out getting hungary. I have a bad habit of grazing almost constantly, Im only about 10-20 lbs over weight but im trying to teach myself to eat at regular times instead of grazing constantly. So far it has helped me with that, after 21 days hopefully Ill have a new habit and will lose some weight. Im deffinately going to pay for my trial and move on to the next round.

I just opened the package and sprinkled my first meal with Sensa. I was worried that it would add some sort of weird taste, but it didn't.

Has anyone been using this for any length of time? Six months or longer?

Hmmn...I'm skeptical but today is Day 4. I'm down 6 pounds!! I'm the lightest that I've been in over two years.

The only side effect: I feel thirsty. I guess that's not a bad thing being I'm sucking down water. I feel that I have dry mouth.

It didn't work for me. Yes, I seemed to be eating a little less but no weight loss. End of story. Sorry!

Did not work for me. I am a 40 yr old woman and I bought this at the beginning of 2009, tried it for 3 mos and it did not work. I actually gained weight. I've heard my male friends say it has worked for them. Hope this helps, good luck

I am on my 2nd week of using Sensa. It works, but, I've started to get an allergic reaction, itchy throat, so I know I am allergic to some ingredient in there. I also have experienced an increased thirst.

Good Good says:
That sound like an allergic reaction to MSG. I have had this unpleasant experience myself. I wonder if it is part of their secret formulation?

Here's the breakdown of the ingredients in Sensa and a definition of each:

* Maltodextrin: According to Wikipedia, this stuff is a polysacchride, which is basically a starch. It might or might not be derived from wheat (important for people with celiac disease) and it might or might not contain MSG. As this is the first ingredient, it must be the biggest player by weight in Sensa, but I'm confused by Sensa's nutrition facts, which indicate that it has zero carbs. You see, Maltodextin is often used by bodybuilders as an easy non-sweet way to get extra carbs into their post-lifting meals. In fact, I found numerous references to Maltodextin being extremely high-glycemic, and they've even used it to prevent post-op weight loss in gastric cancer patients. So what's it doing in a weight-loss supplement? I'd love to hear the analysis behind this one!
* Tricalcium Phosphate: It's called "bone ash" by Wikipedia, but it can be found in rocks too. This is probably in there to help the powder stay powder and not get all cakey and weird, but I'm only guessing, since food manufacturers throw this into all kinds of food. There's quite a bit of controversy about how much of this stuff your body actually can absorb or use, but the jury is still out. Our BFFs at Fit Sugar are similarly stymied by the inclusion of Triwhatsits in yogurt.
* Silica: Well, anyone who has ever ordered anything off of the Internet knows exactly what Silica is: it's in those little packets that say DO NOT EAT. In fact, I can find a lot of information about why you should not be eating silica, but in truth, the stuff is pretty benign (but Mental Floss has a great rundown here). It's naturally found in a lot of things that you're already eating, too, and is one of the building blocks for life. If you're silica-deficient, you get dry brittle hair, weird skin issues and have trouble pooping. So relax, and have a little more silica.
* Natural and Artificial Flavors: Hey, what's this? I don't know! It could be anything! This little "pinch of this, spot of that" weasel word is on just about everything sold by food manufacturers these days, sadly, and that's just the way it is. There's a little clue though, in the warning at the bottom of the ingredients list that says that the product contains soy and milk ingredients.
* FD&C Yellow 5: Eh, it's coloring and it's in everything. Nothing to see here, move along.
* Carmine: More coloring, except this stuff is derived from crushed beetle thoraxes and no, I'm not making that up. Besides, chances are that you've been eating this stuff without realizing it for years, because it's in everything, including your lipstick. Sorry if you need someone to rock you to sleep tonight, but those are the facts. Something to think about when you ask Grandma to pass the Jell-O salad! It's weird, though, that two out of the five ingredients are coloring agents because because as far as I can tell, the tastants look white to me.

Abdul-Malik says:
The recent news about the link between sweetened soft drinks and pancreatic cancer may be just a hint of a bigger problem. Researchers at the University of Minnesota's School of Public Health believe the high amounts of sugar in sodas are forcing the pancreas to produce excessive amounts of insulin. In turn this insulin could be exposing the pancreas to cancer risk.

Still they seem to be missing the bigger picture, Too much sugar increases your cancer risk.
The consumers need answers now. Think about it, if excessive sugar is exposing people to potential cancer risk, what's the risk factor to other dietary starches with high glycemic loads? The FDA needs to do more research into this.

Actually, the $4.95 is for shipping and you get to try the product free for 30 days, but then you will be charged the full price if you don't return the product within the 30-days if you didn't like it. Full price is something like $99.00.
