Journal Title:Medical & Clinical Research

The physiological regulation of human appetite involves a complex interplay between signals originating from the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, liver and adipose tissue, and signals generated from the central nervous system (CNS). A great amount of studies have been conducted on this topic, and evidence has shown that the existence of carbohydrate in the GI tract plays an important role in the moderation of signaling and the regulation of appetite [1].
