Appe-Curb is used for the specific purpose of adjusting or regulating the pleasure/reward, reinforcement, and motivational pathways in the brain. As a result, we can make better food choices and reduce the cravings we have for particular foods or beverages that might not be good for us.
Appe-Curb contains a number of ingredients. They all assist in overcoming the immediate need to satisfy one's cravings. Ingredients in Appe-Curb include:
- Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid)
- Vitamin B-6 (as pyridoxine HCl)
- Chromium (as picolinate)
- dl-Phenylalanine - Has a dual role: Increases the release of CCK and PEA. CCK is a peptide that has to do with signaling the brain that it is satiated from eating, preventing overindulgence. It is also a precursor for phenylethylanime, which has to do with focus, concentration, and mood.
- 5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan)(Griffonia simplicifolia)(seed) - A direct precursor of serotonin, thereby increasing its levels.
