AppTrim™ for the Medical Management of Obesity

AppTrim™ is a key part of a program designed to manage the obese patient. Combined with exercise, diet, and motivation AppTrim™ effectively suppresses appetite and allows patients to comply with a medically supervised program to reduce BMI.

Obesity and Nutritional Deficiencies

A deficiency of histidine, the precursor to histamine, and tyrosine the precursor to norepinephrine, will result in inadequate suppression of Neuropeptide Y, the hormone that controls hunger. Tyrosine and 5 -HTP deficiencies also have been reported in the medical literature in obese patients. Restoration of the correct levels of vital neurotransmitters allows the obese patient to adhere to a program and reach realistic goals of weight control. NDC # 68405-1001-01

AppTrim™ is a Medical Food formulated to provide specific dietary management of obesity. AppTrim™ provides the amino acids that are precursors to the neurotransmitters that control appetite. In addition, AppTrim™ provides the amino acids that are known to suppress Neuropeptide Y, the hormone that controls hunger.

AppTrim™ is designed to produce the neurotransmitters norepinephrine, epinephrine, serotonin, acetylcholine, brain histamine, and glutamate. Glutamate serves as the neuronal stimulator, norepinephrine reduces appetite, serotonin reduces carbohydrate craving, and epinephrine induces fat burning. Brain histamine suppresses Neuropeptide Y, the hunger hormone.

These symptoms are mild and temporary and can be managed by drinking plenty of fluids and carefully titrating the dose. These side effects are relieved by lowering the dose.
