Appethyl Spinach Extract – Help for Appetite Control

Woman Celebrating Weight LossDieting can be tough.

Perhaps the worst part is that you seem to always be hungry.

Why isn’t there a solution to just naturally not be hungry?  

For a lot of people, there finally just might be.

Starting in 2014, you can now buy Appethyl spinach extract in the United States.  We were the first to carry it in the US and you can purchase it at our online store.  We have the lowest online price and free shipping.  However, I suggest continuing to read to understand if this product is right for you.

After a full year of waiting during 2013, Appethyl Spinach Extract, a natural appetite suppressant, finally reached the North American market in December 2014.  And several clinical trials offer some very promising appetite suppressing benefits.  If you are one of the millions of Americans looking for how to curb your appetite and lose weight by learning how to control your hunger, this new natural product provides a lot of hope.

This natural appetite suppressant was extremely well received during 2013 when the product was first launched in the three European countries of Sweden, Finland and Norway, selling out in its first week.  Additionally it became the number one selling supplement of any kind in the largest Health Store Chain in Sweden within several weeks of being on the market.

What is Appethyl?

appethyl spincah powderAppethyl is a natural appetite suppressant product based on Spinach extracts called thylakoids which are designed to suppress hunger and send signals of satiety to the brain.  In other words, to cause you to feel full more quickly and for a longer period of time.  And to accomplish this naturally.

It was created by GreenLeaf Medcial in Stockholm Sweden in conjunction with Lund University over the past couple years and has been very well received in Europe and was finally available in the United States starting in December of 2014. The company refers to it as the Green Gold.

According to the creators, it is intended to address the idea of how to decrease appetite and help you lose weight by three distinct methods:

1) Lower appetite

2) Delay absorption of fats thereby releasing satiety hormones so you feel full

3) Prolong the absorption of carbohydrates

In March of 2013, this product was awarded “Best New Ingredient” at the 2013 Nutracon event.  Since that time, it has been tested in 8 clinical trials and has now received its US patent.

The added side benefits according to GreenLeaf Medical include lowering of blood glucose levels which means lower insulin spikes and reduction of waist circumference.

Does It work? Does Appethyl really naturally suppress appetite?

It seems to work extremely well. That’s what 48 women discovered when they took part in GreenLeaf Medical’s 8th clinical trial in early 2013.

Every one of the 48 women lost weight, and didn’t crave sweets in-between meals.  In fact the desire for sweets diminished even more than overall food cravings.  Now that is a sweet Deal! (Yes the bad food humor was intentional).

In a related Clinical Trial, 36 overweight women took Appethyl with a blueberry beverage at breakfast. [1].   The study attempted to examine the release of GLP-1, a hormone which sends satiety signals to the brain, blood glucose,  insulin levels and also cravings for fats, sweets and salt.  Hunger was dramatically reduced after the first dose and the effect was even stronger after 6 days.  By the end of 6 days, the release of the GLP-1 hormone was significantly increased and the decrease cravings for sweets continued to be improved each day.

The research at Lund University also showed an increase in prebiotics, improving gut health.  ScienceDaily reported very successful results in this 3 month long clinical trial with 38 women.

While impressed by these results, I decided to test this “Thylakoid Storm” for myself.  Although the appetite control and suppression appears to last for 6 hours according to the clinical trial results, I wanted to test to see if these spinach thylakoids curbed appetite for myself and others.  I first tried the product with breakfast and it did in fact significantly reduce any hunger feelings and even thoughts of food in between breakfast and lunch.  A woman that also received a sample described to me that she had the sensation of having had a large Thanksgiving type of dinner and felt full for several hours.

To gain more personal feedback, I gave some of the sample to a local Dentist.  After giving some of the sample to one of his office staff he reported to me that both he and his staff member experienced significant reductions in hunger and did not crave any food in-between meals.

My personal conclusion was that in every case I am aware of hunger sensations were noticeably reduced and every person experienced appetite suppression.

Is It Safe?

It appears to be extremely safe.  Very noteworthy is the lack of any evidence of any negative results or side effects.  In all clinical trials, no reports of any negative side effects have been found.  This appears to be another significant benefit of choosing this natural product derived from Spinach.  With prescription and OTC  weight loss pills or appetite suppressant pills, often there are negative effects including dry mouth, cramps, digestive problems and even some liver issues.  All of these seem to be completely avoided by using Appethyl.

Additional side benefits included a lowering of blood glucose levels and increase in prebiotics which over time improves the condition of the gut flora (healthy bacteria in the intestines).

One User’s Testimonial –

Laura : “Appethyl did reduce my hunger and it was great.  But what I really liked was not experiencing anything bad.  I didn’t feel jittery and there is nothing in it to rev up your metabolism or make you feel nervous or anything.  I just felt full. I wish I hadn’t run out of the sample you gave me.”

User Tips: How to Take Appethyl Spinach Extract

Appethyl Spinach Extract 30 dayThe spinach extract powder is very easy to incorporate into your day and add to a meal.  One thing to keep in mind is that this product is available in powder form so it is less convenient to take than a pill or tablet.

However I found it very easy to take as it can be mixed in juice, water, applesauce and basically any other food.  It has a mild green taste, but is very acceptable  even for those that do not like a spinach or a vegetable taste.

Also, keep in mind this is not an instant weight loss pill but rather a natural product that works instantly for several hours.  But as well it does appear to increase in effect over time and after a week reduces the craving for sweets drastically and even retrains the body’s digestion over time.

This spinach extract powder should be taken with a small amount of fat to provide optimal results.  Just a little Olive oil, butter or other fat will multiply its effect.

It will likely not help you lose 15 pounds in a week as it is not a miracle diet pill and will not artificially ramp up your metabolism or unnaturally start burning fat.  However, it is this characteristic which also makes the product beneficial for those that do not want the artificial stimulant of a product which adds Green Tea, coffee or other stimulant.   Instead, it naturally curbs your appetite and allows you to simply not think about food in between meals and reduces the overall amount of food you will eat by sending the signals to your brain that you are satiated and full.

I believe this approach is not only safer but appears to be a tremendous short term and long term appetite control and weight control solution.
