Product Detail & Benefits


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.


Extra Benefits:
Appestat contains 5-HTP, which not only has benefits for appetite suppression, it is also believed to be an ideal nutrient for improving mood.

Product Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Appestat For Appetite Management I have been using Appestat per the instructions for the last five weeks and I have lost 5 pounds. It has helped me work toward my goal to trim down to my ideal riding/racing weight by helping me manage mid day snacking and by reducing my overall appetite. Overall, this product takes away cravings and allows me to stay focused toward a bigger goal without feeling hungry between my well planned meals. I still have a long way to go to the proper weight, but I know with a little help from Hammer, I will reach my goal. Thanks Hammer for another excellent product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Craving Control! I've been using Appestat for only about a week now, but I can already notice the difference. It has greatly minimized my snacking and sugar cravings. My only regret is that I didn't start using Appestat sooner! Thank you Hammer for another great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Appestat is helping me get to where I want to be I retired about a year ago. When I hit 210 lbs, 10 more than I have ever weighed, I decided some things need to change. These include getting back on my bike which I haven't ridden in a few years, and changing my eating habits. I do seem to be having success in dropping a sugar habit, and eating less in general. The pounds are dropping off slowly but steady. I do believe Appestat is helping the process!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Appestat I do not need to lose any weight, but I wanted to try this before recommending to my daughters. I use many of the Hammer products for training and they have been effective.  I have been using this supplement for a couple of weeks now.  It has not made any noticeable difference in my appetite.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mixed results. Not felt much difference yet. Get busy at work and often can't take before lunch and often out riding till dark before dinner. Lack of results may be due to operator error.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working I bought this product because I always found myself late in the night after dinner snacking here and there. Appestat I can already tell is burning away fat and it has reduced my cravings after each meal.
