Frequently Asked Questions

iNContro™ contains Appethyl®, a patented, clinically-tested and all-natural standardised spinach (Spinacia oleracea) extract rich in thylakoids. Multiple clinical studies support Appethyl® for controlling appetite and reducing cravings.

Thylakoid is a membrane-bound compartment inside chloroplasts found in leafy greens such as spinach. They are the site of the light-dependent reactions of photosynthesis. Due to their physical properties thylakoids are natural emulsifiers of fat and bind to both fat and the fat-digesting enzymes lipase and co-lipase in the digestive tract. In this manner thylakoids have been found to have strong effects on appetite control. Spinach is particularly rich in thylakoids, and therefore the chosen raw material for Appethyl® – a spinach extract, carefully treated to free the thylakoids hidden inside, providing a patented, clinically effective, all-natural and literally green product with profound health benefits.

Clinical studies have shown that thylakoids help reduce hunger and cravings by giving the body’s own satiety signals time to work, thereby helping you make healthy food choices and stick to a healthy diet. The thylakoids’ profound effects on appetite control were first discovered by Charlotte Erlanson-Albertsson, Professor of Medicine and Physiological Chemistry at Lund University in Sweden. In her own words:
“It is about making use of the time it takes to digest our food. There is nothing wrong with our digestive system, but it doesn’t work well with the modern ‘pre-chewed’ food. The thylakoids extend the digestion, producing a feeling of satiety and reducing hedonic hunger. This means that we are able to stick to the diet we are meant for without snacks and unnecessary foods like sweets, crisps and such”

Human beings are not herbivores, and we lack the enzyme that is required to release the bio-active elements that are encysted deep within double-cell-walls of the spinach leaf! The only way to achieve the " iNContro™ effect" is to consume iNContro™!

iNContro™ consists of Appethyl®, which is clinically-tested and shown to have numerous benefits including significantly reducing hunger and cravings by slowing down digestion so that the body’s own systems get time to signal to the brain that we are satisfied. It thereby helps us stay fuller, longer, since the digestion process takes longer. A recent study shows that the reduction in hedonic hunger, which we often refer to as cravings for sugar and unhealthy foods – or simply eating for pleasure – is a particularly strong effect of thylakoids.

The recommended daily dose of iNContro™ is 1 sachet daily, containing 5g of Appethyl®.
In the clinical studies, the participants took this exact dose (5g a day), at breakfast, found that it significantly reduced hunger at lunch as well as reducing cravings for unhealthy foods for the entire day.
An important note: Thylakoids need a certain amount of fat to function at full capability. If you are taking iNContro™, make sure the beverage or meal is not completely fat free. You can take 2 capsules of PRISTIN® fish oil or add a teaspoon of healthy oil of your choice (e.g. olive or sunflower).

Since iNContro™ will affect your appetite in the hours after ingestion you should take your iNContro™ prior to the time when you expect to have cravings or hunger. For example take iNContro™ with your lunch if you normally have trouble resisting snacks in the afternoon or during the evening.
