Sounds good, but does it really work? We take a look at Appetrex Control to find out more.
Appetrex Control is a GNC own label supplement. GNC – General Nutrition Corporation is a well-known USA supplements company with a huge range of own brand supplements. This company sell online but there are also GNC stores located in the USA and across the world.
When you are looking for a diet pill, it is important to find one that you trust so Appetrex Control which is manufactured and sold by GNC looks to have the right credentials. GNC is a trusted brand so you have some assurance that this diet pill should be safe and manufactured to industry standards.
Appetrex Control is a diet pill that is supposed to help you reduce your appetite and according to GNC, should be taken right at the start of your diet.
To help you, it comes with a two-week diet plan that provides you with 1500 calories a day based on healthy foods.
Appetrex Control looks safe but judging by the ingredients list, it is hard to see just how this pill is proven to reduce calorie intake.
There is nothing here that actually reduces the appetite beyond caffeine and with just 180mg per serving, it seems very unlikely that the caffeine will have a strong effect. (the average cup of coffee contains around 100mg of caffeine).
The other ingredients include vitamins and herbs such as dill, ginger, and some tea and coffee based ingredients.
Appetrex control also contains coffee bean extract and more unusually grape seed extract, as well as Chrysin an extract from the popular garden plant Passion Flower.
To take Appetrex Control take two tablets once daily with water 30 to 60 minutes before lunch or dinner. Do not take near bedtime.
GNC is a US company based in Pittsburgh. This huge company is well known throughout the USA and provide supplements and vitamins for just about everyone and everything.

You can find GNC Supplements to improve specific issues such as urinary tract support, menopause support, and prostate support.

According to the advertising, Appetrex Control is:
Clinically proven to reduce calorie intake
Boosts energy and metabolism
GNC explain the clinical test:
In a clinical study of 30 healthy adults (who took Appetrex Control one week followed by a placebo one week apart, or vice versa) food intake was reduced by nearly 10% when the subjects took Appetrex Control versus the placebo prior to their first meal at the start of their diet.
What does this actually mean though?
It seems to suggest that food intake was reduced by NEARLY 10% – not actually 10%, and was carried out on just 30 people and tested the first meal at the start of the diet!
This is not enough to prove that this supplement works!
It is just as likely to prove that the first meal at the start of the diet was horrible! With such a small “clinical test”, there could be a variety of reasons that caused an effect.
Appetrex Control provides you with some support to weight loss with a diet plan.
To help you manage your weight, we’ve included an easy-to-follow meal and exercise plan. Created by expert nutritionists and dieticians, this two-week meal plan provides you with 1,500 calories each day and features healthy foods.
According to the advertising Appetrex control is a:
multi-action formula (that) combines energizing herbs such as yerba mate extract and black tea with EGCG, a major thermogenic component of green tea that helps support metabolism.
Some people seem to think that it helps support weight loss but it obviously does not work for everyone.
The problem is that this diet pill does not really contain anything that is proven to reduce the appetite and although stimulants like caffeine can have this effect; according to GNC Appetrex control only contains 180mg caffeine per serving.
Many of the ingredients are unproven and although it seems that this diet pill is relatively safe and side effect free and contains antioxidants – does this really equate to reducing the appetite and weight loss? We don’t think it does.
In addition, the so-called clinical testing is on such a small scale it hardly seems worth mentioning. We could find no official scientific record of the clinical trial.
Its ingredients are scientifically proven to aid weight loss and you are covered by a full 60-day money-back guarantee from a trusted company, making Phentatrim a very popular choice in the diet world.

Appetrex Control is a diet pill that is supposed to help reduce appetite and to provide some support to weight loss. Each serving is equal to two capsules. Information here is based on a two capsule serving.
The proprietary herbal blend does not come with a full ingredients breakdown but GNC have stated that each serving contains 180mg of caffeine.
Appetrex Control contains vitamins and some ingredients that may be good for health but we cannot see how this supplement will really help you lose weight. In addition, some of the contents are a bit odd. Chrysin, for example, may have an effect upon oestrogen and testosterone but does not seem relevant to weight loss and in addition, lacks clinical evidence.
What will work is a 1500-calorie diet taken over two weeks. Follow that and you are guaranteed to lose weight!
You may experience side effects. Some customers have reported issues with taking this diet pill and these include:
Some customers have reported jittery side effects. One customer reported:
What I did get a lot of was the jitters.
However, she noticed it was worst after drinking coffee so cut out caffeine and saw improvement:
Instead of feeling jittery, I just felt like I had more energy.
Yes, there are customer reviews available via the GNC website and also on Amazon.com. As ever, opinion is mixed.
Negative comments include:
Did absolutely nothing for appetite control.
I hate it
I was hoping that this worked but it did nothing I was really bummed out but hey is there really a magic diet pill?
If you are looking for an appetite suppressant, this may not be the best product. I took it for over a week and could tell no difference in energy or my eating preferences.
Positive reviews include:
My wife and I are using it and it has help start our diet, we are less likely to just eat with out really being hungry its a very good product and the amount is just right, no after effects like other pills no jittery moments. I feel good after taking the pill and the rest of the day until I get home for dinner.
I have been using this for quite a while. It has really helped with my appetite. I have been on a diet from my doctor and using these. I have lost 45 lbs in the last 4-5 months.
Some people have complained about the taste:
This tastes awful plus it burns when I swallow. I immediately follow this by chewing gum. I found that one pill is actually effective. Two is more than what I need. All in all the manufacturer could just change the coating & be done with it
I have tried a lot of diet pills and these really work, I would always end up jittery or feeling sick. These don’t do that. You feel energized and ready for your day and don’t feel bad when you come off them.
Surprisingly nobody has mentioned the associated 2-week diet plan.
No money-back guarantee is offered.

Appetrex Control is made by a well-known supplements company and according to product information, this formula has been tested. However, the details of this one clinical test seem sketchy and unimpressive… We were unable to find any independent references to it and with only GNC’s advertising to go on, plus the fact that it was only tested on 30 people, we feel that you cannot take it seriously.
However, if you did decide to try Appetrex Control and stuck to the 1500 calories a day diet plan you probably would lose weight. Alternatively, you could just try the 1500 calories a day diet plan and not bother with the supplement and you would undoubtedly lose weight too!
We like that Appetrex Control does not look too dangerous but there are some odd ingredients in the formula such as Chrysin so we could not recommend you to take it for health.
When it comes down to it, the main problem with Appetrex Control is that there does not appear to be anything in it to help you reduce your appetite or help you lose weight! Not great news for a supplement described as a diet pill so it is an easy decision. We reject Appetrex Control.
