Certified Naturals™ AppleSlim™ is a natural supplement for use in weight management programs and cardiovascular support.
AppleSlim™ contains the world’s leading apple polyphenol ingredient - ApplePhenon™ together with green coffee bean extract.
ApplePhenon™ is carefully extracted from specially selected wildcrafted immature green apples from Central Asia, the “Land of the Original Apple”. Using a proprietary gentle extraction process, the highest concentration of apple polyphenols is preserved for optimal antioxidant activity. A daily dose of AppleSlim™ capsules containing ApplePhenon™ ingredient contains the equivalent polyphenols of 18 ripe apples.
ApplePhenon™ apple polyphenols are powerful plant-based antioxidants that have been the subject of human clinical trials for a wide variety of health issues:
- Weight management for visceral fat and overall weight
- Cardiovascular support (cholesterol and triglyceride management)
- Glucose management
- Athletic performance
- Respiratory support
- Skin care
- Dental care
- Inflammatory conditions
ApplePhenon™ is thought to have three primary modes of action to deliver its benefits for weight management and cardiovascular support:
1. Its role as an antioxidant (clearing waste from the cells and protecting them from damage)
2. Its prebiotic properties which promote improved gut flora
3. Its ability to mimic a calorie-restricted diet by inhibiting enzyme activity in lipid and glucose absorption
Two clinical studies have shown that daily doses of 600 mg of ApplePhenon™ can help to reduce visceral fat and overall weight. The first 12-week placebo-controlled study demonstrated that by using ApplePhenon™, visceral fat in overweight individuals could be decreased by 9% while reducing waistline and hip measurements. A second longer study showed a reduction in in visceral fat area, an improvement in adiponectin levels (anti-inflammatory hormone that helps with glucose control) and a decrease in overall weight.
