Modius: The Newest Weight Loss Trend Using Neuro-technology

The weight loss industry is a 60 billion dollar market full of various weight loss diets, different exercise methods and diet pills. In our digital age there are now technology devices to help you lose weight coming to market and the newest is Modius.

Modius is a headset worn for a few hours a week which stimulates the part of the brain associated with metabolism and fat storage. Modius uses neuro-technology to make weight loss easier by reducing your appetite and cravings. It generates a low-level electrical pulse that is interpreted by the brain as a signal to become leaner and at the same time decreases your appetite, meaning you lose weight without going through the pain of massive and constant hunger pangs.

Per Modius their headset uses a small electrical pulse to activate the vestibular system. This activation then proceeds through to the brainstem and onwards into the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus is a crucial area in how the brain maintains stable internal physiological processes within the body, part of which includes fat storage and appetite.

Apparently there is thought to be a ‘set-range’ in the hypothalamus that acts to regulate body fat. This acts to modify feeding behavior and metabolic rate, in order to maintain body mass composition within set parameters. The set-range for body mass composition that is determined by the central melanocortin system obviously varies from person to person and is influenced by both genetic and epigenetic factors.

Furthermore, exposure to Western diets that are often high in quantities of sugar and saturated fatty acids can damage neuronal populations within the hypothalamus and push the set-point for body fat upwards. Due to that the overweight body composition appear to be the ‘new normal’ as far as the brain is concerned, and reverting to a leaner set-point once this has occurred can be very difficult.

After reading the above face provided from Modius it all make sense how your brain can control you weight loss and generate a “new normal” with the weight gain. It makes you want to try this headset if you are struggling with weight loss, it’s worth a shot!

Modius ease of use is simple just connect and control your headset via the Modius app (iOS 9+ and Android 5+). Included with Modius is the headset, wipes, pads, and a charging cable. It retails for $399.00 and can be purchased here:
