What You Should Know
Appecal is an appetite suppressant sold through the InQpharm Group. The official website is informative with detailed information on the supplement including reference to a single ingredient in the formula. There is an image of the product label but the ingredients on the label are very difficult to read.
We did not find testimonials or before and after photos on the Appecal website. There are references to clinical research with details about the journals that published the research. According to these references, dieters using this single ingredient lost more weight in eight weeks than those taking a placebo.
List of Ingredients
Amorphophallus konjac is a source of glucomannan. Glucomannan is a water-soluble fiber commonly used to inhibit appetite. Glucomannan expands when it absorbs water. Supplement companies claim the expanding glucomannan leaves the dieter feeling full until the fiber is digested. Fiber takes longer to digest than other food so appetite would be suppressed.
Fiber is a healthy addition to any weight loss diet, but the effects on appetite are not as strong as some supplement companies claim. In order for the product to work, glucomannan or Appecal needs to be consumed about 30 to 45 minutes before a meal. Dieters may feel boated after taking a glucomannan supplement. That bloating is the initial reaction that suppresses appetite, but it can also cause discomfort, as fiber tends to cause gas. As the fiber enters the digestive system, everything slows down, but dieters who are used to overeating may still feel hungry and consume more than enough calories even though appetite is suppressed.
Appetite suppression is just one aspect of weight loss. In addition to reducing food consumption, dieters must also increase metabolism and calorie burn. This is accomplished with exercise or with fat burning supplements. If Appecal contains only konjac root, other supplements can be taken in conjunction with the product, but not at the same time. Fiber works as a natural laxative, so the dieter must wait a few hours before taking other supplements or vitamins.

There are a hundred and one reasons to add more fiber to your diet, but the most important is not weight control. Colon health relies on fiber, both water and fat-soluble. Appecal lists the main ingredient as fiber, but we have no idea if there are other ingredients as the product label is hard to read.
