We have seen diet pills that contain some pretty weird and wonderful ingredients. Everything from seaweed, obscure cactus plants to fruits you have never heard of and the grisly sounding ox bile – there is always something new on the weight loss supplements market.
In most cases, these ingredients come with the claims to be the answer to obesity that we have all been waiting for.
However, an electronic diet pill that tricks your brain into believing your stomach is full is something we have never seen before. An Israeli company called Melcap Systems have come up with just that very invention by developing an electronic diet pill that will help you lose weight.
According to them, this neat invention will allow you to enjoy your food without feeling the need the need to overeat. The way that it works is fairly simple. The electronic diet pill is first swallowed then guided to the correct location via an external magnet.
It is placed near the lower oesophageal tract close to the Vagus nerve– one of two nerves that extends from the brain to the abdomen.
Once in place, the electronic device begins pulsating in the gastrointestinal tract. These rhythmic pulses are picked up by the Vagus nerve and as a result, a message is relayed to your brain, telling it that the stomach is full.
The electronic pill stays in place for 21 days and then breaks down and exits from the body in the usual way.
The electronic diet pill is still undergoing clinical trials but Melcap Systems hope to have a product to market next year. They are confident that the electronic diet pill will provide a solution to over eating and obesity.
A representative for MelCap speaking in an interview said,
MelCap Systems is dedicated to providing medical solutions to the huge population suffering from obesity. One billion overweight people over the world are eager for a cost effective and safe device which can help them to be healthier and not have the potential risk of obesity.
We can see some associated problems. Will it set off the alarm next time you go through airport security? Will you be able to feel the electronic device pulsating in your stomach? Will it pick up the wifi so you start broadcasting live radio from deep within your body?
Hopefully all these wrinkles will have been ironed out once this electronic diet pill hits the market.
