Sugar is made from equal parts of fructose and glucose. Almost all sugars and sweeteners activate the brain reward system, but to different extents. For instance, fructose consumption is accompanied by a higher activity rise in the brain reward system and less satiety inducing. The effect is seen to a relatively less extent in glucose, saccharin, and sucralose.
Xanthan is an indigestible soluble fiber, which absorbs water and turns into a gel-like substance, slowing down digestion. It controls sugar entry to the bloodstream and decreasing blood sugar spikes. Xanthan aids in weight loss by increasing satiety, lowering bad cholesterol, claiming to have cancer-fighting properties, improving regularity, and used as saliva substitute.
Magnesium supplementation in obese patients promotes weight loss and prevents complications of weight-loss regimens.
Magnesium supplementation reduces cravings as a result of improved glucose control and increased synthesis and sensitivity of serotonin.
Decreased magnesium levels increase the risk of diabetes. In contrast, magnesium supplementation in diabetic patients decreases fasting plasma glucose, HbA1c, and weight and therefore helps to control diabetes.

Guar gum decreases body weight by 1.8 lbs (~0.81 kg) in overweight adults and those with additional risk factors for cardiovascular disease (Jovanovski 2020).
Guar gum increases satiety for 10 hours (Faris 1998).
Guar gum decreases daily energy intake by 310 calories (Pasman 1997b). That is a weight loss of ~2.5 kg (5.3 lbs) per month or 30 kg (66 lbs) per year.
Guar gum increases the ratio of the healthy to unhealthy gut flora by 100% to 1,000% (Fak 2015, Ohashi 2015, Berger 2014, Okubo 1994). An unhealthy microbiome promotes sugar cravings (Roberfroid 2010).
Green Camellia Sinensis decreases body weight (by 4.6%), abdominal fat (by 7.7%), and waist circumference (by 4.5%) as a result of increased thermogenesis and fat oxidation.
Green Camellia Sinensis decreases cravings by improving insulin sensitivity and glucose metabolism, protecting brain centers sensitive to dopamine and serotonin from oxidative stress and stabilizing mood.
Green Camellia Sinensis decreases the risk of diabetes (by 33%) by reducing HbA1C levels, improving glucose metabolism, and increasing insulin sensitivity by 13%.
