Hammer Nutrition Appestat (90 Capsules)
This is a bottle of 90 capsules of Hammer Nutrition Appestat. We've got lots of grizzlies here in northwest Montana, and in the off-season they set their activity level at "hibernate". We know you don't cut back your training that much, but you do cut back, and you stay awake all winter eating. Come next season, you look like you are ready to hibernate. If that's the case, then you need Appestat, the guaranteed way to restrict appetite during the off-season. Appestat is a stimulant-free appetite control supplement that safely suppresses appetite and increases carbohydrate metabolism, thereby helping to decrease body fat accumulation and weight gain without the use of potentially harmful stimulants. When you start off next season already at ideal weight, you'll be glad you invested a few dollars in Appestat.
What's in APPESTAT and What Do These Nutrients Do?
5-HYDROXYTRYPTOPHAN (5-HTP), is a plant-based precursor of serotonin. In addition to potentially enhancing the quality of sleep and growth hormone release, 5-HTP aids in reducing sugar cravings.
ZINC (we use the extremely bioavailable Monomethionine form) is an essential part of approximately 300 different bodily function including carbohydrate metabolism. Low zinc levels, common in high carbohydrate diets, can also reduce the athlete's ability to utilize oxygen and generate energy during exercise.
IODINE is needed for the synthesis of one of the thyroid hormones known as thyroxin that involved in regulating metabolic rate.
CHROMIUM POLYNICOTINATE helps insulin regulate blood sugar levels; supplementation tends to decrease blood sugar in people with high blood sugar levels and raises blood sugar in people with low blood sugar levels. It improves the uptake of cellular glucose for energy production and is believed to inhibit the synthesis of new fat from carbohydrates, which frees the mitochondria to burn already-stored fat. While there are many forms available to the consumer the polynicotinate form is superior, considered to be 300 times more biologically active (referring to absorption rates) than other forms of this trace mineral.
HYDROXYCITRIC ACID (HCA) may just be one of Nature's most remarkable weight loss nutrients. This active ingredient of the Garcinia Cambogia fruit safely inhibits an enzyme called citrate lyase, which is used in the conversion of carbohydrates into fat. It also gently suppresses appetite and reduces food intake.
Appestat contains 5-HTP, which not only has benefits for appetite suppression, it is also believed to be an ideal nutrient for improving mood.
