Scientific Information on Binge-eating


Human Effect Matrix

The Human Effect Matrix looks at human studies (it excludes animal and in vitro studies) to tell you what supplements affect binge-eating
Grade Level of Evidence
Robust research conducted with repeated double-blind clinical trials
Multiple studies where at least two are double-blind and placebo controlled
Single double-blind study or multiple cohort studies
Uncontrolled or observational studies only
Level of Evidence
? The amount of high quality evidence. The mo re evidence, the more we can trust the results.
Outcome Magnitude of effect
? The direction and size of the supplement's impact on each outcome. Some supplements can have an increasing effect, others have a decreasing effect, and others have no effect.
Consistency of research results
? Scientific research does not always agree. HIGH or VERY HIGH means that most of the scientific research agrees.
Notes
grade-c Chromium Minor - See study
Although chromium showed an ability to reduce binge eating symptoms in persons with the disorder, this failed to reach statistical significance.
grade-c Inositol Minor - See study
Symptoms of bulimia and binge-eating in diagnosed women have been significantly improved with high dose inositol therapy (18g daily)

All comparative evidence is now gathered in our ​A-to-Z Supplement Reference.
