Q&A for Phytolean
Q: How is Phytolean different than Appestat?
A: Appestat's primary functions are to help suppress appetite, reduce sugar cravings, help maintain ideal blood glucose and insulin levels, and to support thyroid gland function for optimizing metabolism. Phytolean helps increase fat metabolism, decrease fat absorption and storage, and blocks the digestion and absorption of carbohydrates.
Q: Can I use Phytolean with Appestat?
A: Yes, both products can be used in tandem. Keep in mind that Appestat is designed for short-term use, primarily during the off season, and in a "three weeks on, one week off" cycle. Phytolean can be use all year long, if necessary and desired.
Q: When would be the most ideal time to use Phytolean?
A: You can use Phytolean before any high-carbohydrate meal, especially one that contains lots of starchy carbs.
Q: How many capsules do I need to take?
A: We suggest taking two capsules with meals. If the meal is excessively high in carbohydrates, a third capsule may be taken if desired.
Q: Is there any time that I wouldn't want to use Phytolean?
A: During periods of high-volume training, you will need to maintain adequate daily carbohydrate intake, especially in the first few hours after your workout. At this time you don't want to disrupt the digestion/absorption of carbohydrates because they'll be needed for replenishment of glycogen stores. Therefore, we don't recommend taking Phytolean with your post-workout Recoverite or with your next sit-down meal. If, however, you are overloading on carbohydrates - especially late in the evening - taking Phytolean at that time will help you maintain your ideal body weight.
