Health Benefits at a Glance:
Made from valuable natural ingredients, the Wellness Code™ Appetite Control™ Bar offers an ultra-healthy and clinically studied low-calorie snack which is a great alternative to unrestricted snacking. With a documented ability to enhance satiety and curb craving for salty and sweet snacks, the Wellness Code™ Appetite Control™ Bar offers a delicious cocoa-flavored alternative to regular snacking and everyday weight management.
Why it Works:
Raw spinach contains a special kind of compounds called thylakoids. Thylakoids bind to dietary fats which means that the emptying of the stomach contents to the digestive system is delayed. In turn, this delay turns on certain appetite-suppressing hormones. And it is these hormones which promote satiety and therefore reduces the urge to snack .
Furthermore, thylakoids are usually found between the indigestible walls of plant cells . The Wellness Code™ Appetite Control™ Bar contains a unique kind of thylakoid enriched spinach extract. This special spinach extract is called Appethyl® and enhances the bioavailability of thylakoids in the bar.
The Science Behind the Product:
Clinical studies of the satiating effects of the Appethyl® extracts are promising. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, 22 women took a single dose of 5 grams of Appethyl® extract in the morning, along with a healthy breakfast.
Compared to placebo, Appethyl® reduced cravings for all snacks and sweets during the day by 36%; for sweet and fat snacks, also by 36%; and for salty snacks by 30%. Feelings of fullness were increased by 14%, and hunger was reduced by 21% .
In other studies, Appethyl® taken with meals or snacks reduced hunger and food cravings as compared to controls [2,3].
