FutureShape Appetite Reducer is made with Appetrol™, a plant fiber complex made from the tuberous roots of the Amorphophallus konjac plant, pronounced KOHN-yak. Also known as Snake Palm because of its appearance (www.exoticrainforest.com), it’s grown in Asia as a food crop and used in Japan as an additive to stews. Konjac is the ingredient used to make Shirataki noodles, which are eaten by many Asian women to keep weight down (www.shiratakenoodles.com). These roots contain water-soluble fibers with very high bulk-forming capabilities and viscosity. These fibers can swell many times their original volume to help promote a pleasant feeling of fullness, making you less susceptible to cravings or binge eating. You’ll also feel fuller faster so you can control your portion size while shrinking your waist!
How does Appetite Reducer work?
It promotes satisfaction—It increases a sensation of fullness because the fibers in Appetrol™ absorb liquid in the digestive system, swelling and forming an indigestible gel. This creates a feeling of fullness that produces a sense of satisfaction, which reduces cravings. Simply put, you’ll feel fuller longer so you’ll eat less.It slows the digestive process—The gelling action of the Appetrol™ fibers slows down the rate that the food travels from the stomach into the small intestine, promoting a feeling of satiety that will help you reduce your food intake.
It controls insulin levels—Medical studies demonstrate that the Glucomannan in Appetrol™ helps control blood glucose (http://www.jacn.org/content/22/1/36.full.pdf+html; http://www.konjacfoods.com/). The gel formed by the fibers in Appetrol™ slows down the digestion and absorption of glucose, prolonging the insulin response after a meal. This prolonged response prevents a blood insulin spike which helps to curb hunger and cravings while promoting appetite control.
