What can I expect to feel when I first start taking Calocurb?

Calocurb Summer

We thought we would talk about one of the most commonly asked questions from customers who start taking Calocurb.

We created Calocurb with full transparency, traceability, and efficacy at its forefront. With eight years of scientific research at Plant and Food Research NZ, clinical trials and customer feedback, we know that we are onto something special to help make smart food choices a bit easier for people.

You may already know this, but Calocurb is 100% natural with only three simple ingredients – New Zealand Hops, Rosemary Leaf Extract, and Canola Oil.


It’s important to keep in mind that Calocurb is no silver bullet for weight loss, in reality, there are no magic pills when it comes to sustainable weight management. However, it does become a reliable and effective tool to help manage your appetite and support weight management goals.

It's all about feeling in control of your food choices - like opting for smaller portion sizes, snacking less or choosing healthy snacks throughout the day.

We often hear that our customers expect to feel full right after starting their meal, however the active ingredient in Calocurb, AmarasateTM works to support a feeling of satiety which is usually felt throughout the day. We’ve found that Calocurb works best when taken an hour before a meal or snack time, which gives Calocurb’s active ingredient enough time to release into the lower intestine where it’s most effective. Many people report that taking a Calocurb before lunch helps manage food cravings at the dreaded 3pm lull where they tend to give into cravings too often.

Have a think about your own routine and lifestyle and ask yourself when you are prone to overeating or unhealthy snacking. It may be helpful to keep a food diary pre Calocurb and when you first start taking Calocurb. You can then monitor the times when you are feeling most hungry (or most prone to snacking) – and then compare those same times when on Calocurb to see how you are feeling. Most people will feel the effect of Calocurb for several hours after taking a capsule.


We recently spoke to a customer who when asked about where she noticed the biggest difference while taking Calocurb said – ‘it makes me feel calm and content after dinner, as I don’t feel I need to keep on going into the cupboard to find those sweet treats.’

Nicola – who has been on Calocurb since we launched and has achieved some incredible results told us – ‘it really worked for me as a product along with my current exercise regime and helped me to change my daily eating habits.’

Most of our customers adjust the way they take their Calocurb to suit their own schedules and their relationship with food. At the end of the day, it’s all about personal preference and our team is on hand to help with any issues or questions you have when you start. Think of us as your personal Calocurb support group to help when you need it.
