Supplements To Boost Appetite

You would think running a long run of 35K is enough to make you hungry but some times after running over 35K am unable to touch food. I don’t know what causes me to lose appetite but it takes me about six hours to get my appetite back.

I found an article on herbal supplements that one take to boost appetite. The article on ehow listed familiar herbs that you can eat to boost appetite

  1. Peppermint
  2. Catnip
  3. Ginger root
  4. Fennel seeds
  5. Gingseng
  6. Papaya Fruit

These herbal supplements contain helpful digestive enzymes; the supplements can be used to stimulate appetite.

Another plant listed was Marijuana – I WOULDN’T RECOMMEND IT – the article claims, Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the active ingredient in cannabis, is prescribed medically to reduce nausea and stimulate appetite in patients undergoing treatment for cancer. The short-term effects include sweet cravings and increased enjoyment of meals.

I also know that in parts of western Kenya, Africa, men smoke Marijuana before going to work in the farms. They claim smoking Marijuana helps them work non-stop.

Remember, Loss of appetite may be a symptom of serious illness. See a doctor.
