NeonMind specifically used psilocybin to decrease visceral fat. “Increased visceral fat is linked to poorer cardiometabolic health and reduction in this type of fat is important in weight loss and better overall health outcomes,” they said. When analyzing obese animals, they found that there was a statistically significant difference in relative and absolute weight gain which was seen just days after psilocybin was given to the animal subjects. They also found significant reduction in food consumption when compared with the control group, and no negative safety signals were observed.
