Appedex SX-7: MuscleTech’s Natural Appetite Suppressant

MuscleTech Appedex SX-7

Appedex SX-7 looks like a solid formula, but there’s only 21 servings (not even a month’s worth), and it will cost you as a GNC-exclusive.

The ever strong MuscleTech is pushing hard with their SX-7 line of supplements, which is their most unique line of products available. The SX-7 series has a variety of advanced and powerful products, but are currently a GNC-exclusive line.

As if their other fat burners and weight loss protein powders weren’t enough, another product has been added to the SX-7 line: MuscleTech Appedex SX-7, an appetite-suprressing powder.

This is a unique powdered blend of natural ingredients that makes Appedex a potentially excellent appetite suppressant to stack with anything else from MuscleTech. Appedex is a stimulant free, extremely low calorie supplement to stamp out cravings for hours all using natural hunger-quenching ingredients.

Below we discuss the ingredients and dosage. Our initial impression is that this looks like a fantastic product, but we are currently disappointed with the high price, given that there’s only 21 servings – not enough to last a month.

The Appedex SX-7 Ingredients

Each scoop of powder contains a select blend of choice ingredients below:

  • Kelp leaves and fiber

    In addition to the ability to reduce weight gain, kelp fiber also shows significant ability to reduce caloric intake of the subject by up to 16%.[1] This means that during the study (done on males), whoever was taking kelp was was eating 16% less than his typical diet. Studies have not shown, however, that kelp causes feeling of being full.[1]

  • Appethyl: Spinach leaf extract

    MuscleTech Appedex SX-7 Ingredients

    The ingredient label. Looks good, but at what price?!

    Appethyl is an ingredient made up of “thylakoids”, or green leaf extracts. Studies, though not done on humans, have shown that these thylakoids are useful to suppress appetite and reduce weight gain.[2] This is an excellent double-play for the Appedex SX-7 “appetite exterminator”.

  • Kudzu flower extract

    A familiar plant used for remedies in Japan, known as kudzu, is also used in pastries and teas. Kudzu has excellent effects for lowering body mass index in its study subjects.[3] Though not proven thorough study but reported by many, the kudzu flower possesses a great appetite suppressing effect.

  • White kidney bean extract

    As many know, beans do a great job of satiating hunger, as beans are loaded with fiber and protein. In a study on humans, white kidney bean extract has an effect of appetite suppression. The subjects felt full for hours, and had a much less desire to eat.[4] Another ingredient that works, added into the mix.

  • Prickly pear leaf extract

    Prickly pear leaf extract is used in many different fiber compounds which aid in weight loss. Not only does fiber alone cause the feeling of fullness, but the fiber from prickly pear causes a decrease in fat absorption in the body[5] as shown in the study.

  • Lemon balm leaf extract

    Lemon balm extract has great effects as an antidepressant and also stress reducing properties.[6] These can play key roles in Appedex, as it is a non stimulant, so lemon balm leaf can really boost the mood when you feel you need to binge.

  • Mulberry

    Mulberry is another ingredient involved with appetite suppressant qualities. Mulberry extract contains antioxidants and polyphenols. Polyphenols, like gallic acid, found in mulberry extract has the ability to lighten hunger, and also lighten mild to moderate levels of stress.[7]

  • Camu camu

    The final ingredient on the list is Camu camu, a berry which reigns from the amazon forest. This fruit is power-packed with vitamin-C and other antioxidants, and more polyphenols which support appetite suppression. Camu camu is saturated with nutrients needed to provide energy, boost your mood and get the job done.

The Macronutrients

In each scoop, you get

  • 4g of carbs, all of which come from fiber.
  • 1g of protein, likely a vegetable source from the kelp fiber
  • 0 fat
  • 20 calories total

Bonus in the nutrients

A potential side-benefit of some of these ingredients, such as camu camu, is that they provide additional nutrients, which are what your body really craves. It has been hypothesized that eating foods that are not nutrient-dense leaves a person with little satiety because the body sends hunger signals once again, requesting nutrients, not calories.

Another argument for a diet with proper macronutrients and micronutrients, and some of the ingredients above provide micronutrients you may not be getting.

The dosage

Unfortunately, there are only 21 servings per tub, and it is suggested to drink with a meal once per day, so this will only get you three weeks of use – a bit short of the typical month we like to get from products.

It’s recommended to blend, not stir this product. Otherwise the kelp and spinach will clump.

The MuscleTech SX-7 Series Welcomes Appedex

The newest addition to the line is completely natural, as you can tell. This is a tasty and flavorful way to prevent overeating and assist in weight loss. Appedex will make an awesome stack with any of the SX-7 products, but for now, it’s only available at GNC. So get ready to lighten the load of your diet regimen with MuscleTech’s new Appedex.

The initial review / impressions

This SX-7 line has been interesting, and Appedex is no different. There seems to be legitimate dosages and legitimate products here. The issue we have is that it currently costs way too much — especially being only three weeks of use. Until the price drops or the size doubles (and you can sign up for MuslceTech price drops below), we won’t yet be trying this.
