Does Killa Vanilla Really Work?

Struggling to overcome sugar cravings? Finding it impossible to resist the sweet temptation of sugary treats? That’s exactly what Killa Vanilla was made for. 

Killa Vanilla is a natural vanilla-scented product designed to help curb those cravings and support a healthier lifestyle.

We get that this sounds too good to be true. We’d be sceptical too. After all, you’ve been battling your sugar addiction forever and the internet is full of claims that you’ll get fit and healthy if you just buy this one thing

And you’d be right, Killa Vanilla is not an instant cure. It’s not a silver bullet with a simple solution. But it is a golden bullet and it does work. Once you understand the neuroscience and habit change behaviours behind it, you’ll get why we’re so confident that you’ll succeed in taking back control of your life.  

How Does Killa Vanilla Work? (The Science Behind the Scent)

You don’t need us to tell you sugar cravings are powerful. You’ve felt it. But why? 

When we consume sugar, our brains release dopamine, a neurotransmitter associated with pleasure and reward. This dopamine rush makes us crave more sugar so we can experience that pleasurable feeling over and over again. 

Killa Vanilla disrupts this using the Cross-Modal Sensory Compensation Effect

While that sounds complicated, the effect is quite simple: one sense can "trick" another sense into feeling satisfied. 

In this case, our chosen vanilla scent activates the areas of the brain that normally get fired up by sugar, giving you the same satisfaction. With your cravings satisfied, it’s much easier to resist temptation. 

But before we can kill the cravings with the Cross-Modal Sensory Compensation Effect, they’ll be triggered using the Priming Effect. 

Imagine you’re in the supermarket, walking past the bakery section, and you smell the freshly baked cakes. This cues your brain to remember how much it loves the dopamine release from sugar, triggering cravings. 

This is the Priming Effect. Retailers use it all the time as a sales method. 

This is why for Killa Vanilla to work, you need to use it for the whole two minutes. The first 30 seconds trigger the Priming Effect, bringing the cravings to the surface, but after two minutes, the effect is completely reversed, killing your cravings.

That’s why it’s essential to stick it out for the full two minutes, otherwise, you’re just triggering the cravings without closing that loop - the opposite of what you’re trying to do. 

Now you understand how Killa Vanilla works in the moment of craving, but how can it help you achieve long-term results? 

That’s where the science of habit change comes in. 

Habit Change & Measuring Success

Killa Vanilla isn't just about satisfying cravings in the moment; it's about retraining your brain and building new, healthier habits. 

To do this, you need to build a new habit to replace your existing one.

How Are Habits Formed?

Habits work in a loop with a cue, a response, and a reward. 

Cue: This is the trigger that starts the habit loop. It can be anything from a time of day, a certain location, an emotion, or even another habit. For example, your cue for eating a pack of biscuits might be a stressful day at work. 

Response: This is the actual behavior that follows the cue. In our example, the response would be grabbing the biscuits.

Reward: This is the satisfying feeling you get after completing the response. The biscuits provide a temporary pleasure hit, reinforcing the connection between the cue (feeling stressed with work) and the response (eating sugar).

Over time, with repetition, this loop becomes stronger. The brain learns to associate the cue with the reward, making the response more automatic. That's why habits can be hard to break, especially if you’ve been reinforcing them for years, or even decades. 

Breaking the Loop

To kill any bad habit, like sugar addiction, you need to form a new healthy habit. 

Killa Vanilla targets the response to break this habit loop. Instead, when you experience your specific cue (everyone is different) you reach for your Killa Vanilla – that's the new healthy habit we're building!

Each time you successfully use Killa Vanilla, you weaken the connection between your cues and the response. You’ll still be rewarded with a dopamine hit, but it’s weaker and less satisfying to the brain. The weaker that connection, the easier it’ll be to resist the cravings in the long term as the dopamine hit is no longer as high.

Our 3-month timeframe is specifically chosen to build and strengthen these new neural pathways. It’s not an overnight fix - many of us have been addicted to sugar for as long as we can remember, so it will take time.

Progress is better than perfection. 

That’s why we highly recommend you track and measure your progress.   

Measuring Success

The easiest way is to identify your enemy. Maybe it’s the bag of Haribo at lunch, or the breakfast pastries, or the ice cream before bed. 

How much of it do you normally eat each day? This is what we want to track. 

If you buy two tubs of ice cream at the weekly shop instead of three, that’s a win. One less biscuit each night? Win. One less spoonful of sugar in your tea? You guessed it - win!

If you don’t track your progress, not only will you overlook and underappreciate the small wins, but you’ll have less motivation to see it through. 

Using Killa Vanilla Effectively

There is definitely a right and wrong way to use Killa Vanilla. If you’re not seeing your desired results, there’s a good chance you’re unintentionally using it wrong - we get it, it happens.

Here’s how to make the most out of Killa Vanilla:

  • Smell it for the full two minutes. Any less and you’re just triggering the cravings - not killing it! For the science to do its thing, smell it on and off for two minutes, no less. If you need help, use a timer or count your puffs.
  • Use it just before your craving is triggered. The best time to use Killa Vanilla is 5 minutes or so before you usually experience your sugar cravings. This might be right before you get home, or before you go food shopping. Get ahead of the craving and kill it before it has a chance to show up.
  • Stay consistent. Neuroscience is only half of the solution. You need to commit to habit change, and that requires consistency. Remember to keep your Killa Vanilla with you all day as a reminder. 
  • Set the right expectations. This is not a silver bullet or quick fix. You won’t be able to go cold turkey after a day. If you expect this, your motivation will quickly run out. 
  • Make the commitment. You have to be ready to put in the work for the sake of your long-term health goals. That means giving up the sugary snacks. If you’re not ready to do that yet, maybe it’s not the right time for this journey. 

We’ve given you the neuroscience, but the habit change is up to you.

Pete’s Story

“I used to get massive sinus headaches. A lot of dehydration. I’ve not had a headache since. I would have one every couple of nights and have to take painkillers and cold showers. Now they’re completely gone. I’m less tired, lethargic, and nowhere near as jittery.”

Mandi’s Story

“I feel so much better. The brain fog has improved immensely. I’ve got more energy. I’ve lost weight. I don't feel like a slave to my cravings. I feel released from constantly thinking about sweet things. 

I had a bit of chocolate today, but it was 2 squares of dark chocolate. Previously, it would be a whole family bar. I haven't had biscuits or cake for weeks either. I can walk down the confectionary aisle and that ‘got to have it’ feeling has gone. I don’t want it.”
