Dull Taste Buds Might Be Responsible for Your Weight Gain

A team of researchers from Cornell University, USA, suggests that people with dull taste buds choose more sugary beverages and that often leads to weight gain.dull taste buds

For the study, 51 volunteers drank an herbal tea with low, medium, or high content of a herb called Gymnema Sylvester, which is able to block sweet receptors temporally. After that, people in three groups were given a free choice of sugar for their other drinks. Without realizing it, people took about 8 to 12 percent sucrose in their drinks. This is the amount of sucrose in a soft drink or soda.

Senior researcher Robin Dando says: “Others have suggested that the overweight may have a reduction in their perceived intensity of taste. So, if an overweight or obese person has a diminished sense of taste, our research shows that they may begin to seek out more intense stimuli to attain a satisfactory level of reward.”
