Appatrol claims to give all the effects of normal stimulant based fat burners but without any of the side effects. The manufacturers boast that this is because of their delicately mixed ingredients of which there are only three. As well as this there are claims that the pills can get to work in as little as 7 days; the manufacturers are so confident about this that you can return the pills if you are not satisfied after just 15.
In this article we will examine just how many of Appatrol’s claims are true and whether the pill can aid significantly with weight loss all the while not resulting in any unpleasant side effects.
- Contains Green Tea, which is proven to increase metabolism.
- All natural ingredients.
- Reasonably priced.
- No information available concerning the amount of stimulant ingredients.
- Lack of consumer reviews available.
- No clinical trials have been done on the pills themselves.
- Company seems very money orientated and tries to get consumers to by unnecessary supplementary products.
Appatrol claims to be one of the most unique fat burning diet pills on the market due to the ‘low amounts’ of its stimulant ingredients. Manufacturers say that the pill contains enough of them so that users can reap their weight loss benefits but not enough of them to cause any of the side effects usually associated with stimulants.
In the Appatrol review below, we will look to see if there is any evidence to support these claims or whether they are just an exaggeration by the manufacturers in order to encourage people to buy into their various products. We will also examine whether the pills have the potential to aid individuals with their weight loss.
Claimed weight loss benefits
Appatrol is advertised as having 3 out of 5 of what are considered to be the main weight loss factors. These include the pills working to increase metabolism, suppress the appetite and burn fat through its thermogenic ingredients.
There is some doubt however, as to whether the pills will actually exhibit any of these characteristics mainly because we are given no information as to the specific quantities of each ingredient. So, while there is potential that the pills may increase thermogenesis and boost metabolism, these results cannot be guaranteed.
For information please read our Appatrol Clinical Studies article.
In terms of increasing thermogenesis, Appatrol contains Green Tea extract, which is proven to be a thermogenic agent due to its amounts of catecholamines and ability to promote fat oxidation.
For increased metabolism, the pills contain both Green Tea and Synephrine (Bitter Orange) which are both thermogenic agents and help to increase the rate of fat burning within the body.
Appetite suppressant is claimed to be achieved by both Caralluma Fimbriata and Synephrine. These natural ingredients are claimed to affect the brain and trick it into telling your body that you are fuller and thus reduces your appetite and food intake.
For more information on any of these ingredients, we recommend that you read our How Appatrol Works article.
It does seem that this combination of ingredients has the potential to have a significant effect on weight loss but whether they actually provide results will depend on their quantities.
We will see how these three ingredients work together to combine their weight loss properties below.
We disagree with the product’s claims to be an appetite suppressant, metabolism booster and fat burner.

How Appatrol Works
With all three of Appatrol’s ingredients having various effects on weight loss, it is now to be seen how, when combined together, they have the potential to give good results regarding the reduction of fat within the body.
The Caralluma Fimbriata works to increase the amount of fat burnt in any given period of time, and, as well as this, it interferes with hunger mechanisms in the brain to suppress the appetite. Therefore, by using this one ingredient you should already be consuming fewer calories and burning more off.
This effect is doubled when the Green Tea starts work to increase thermogenesis resulting in the burning of fat that would otherwise have been stored. It too works to suppress the appetite by controlling blood sugar levels which means that you should now be eating significantly less, and be able to overcome cravings while burning significantly more fat without any exercise.
The Synephrine then increases this effect even more by speeding up lipolysis, which is the breakdown of fats within the body helping to make weight loss quicker and more effective.
This however is all theoretical. Appatrol’s website provides no quantitative information as to the amounts of each ingredient used in the pills. It is scientifically proven that a certain amount of these ingredients is needed to give the results described above, you can read more on this in our Appatrol Clinical Studies article, and without this information, the claims of Appatrol cannot be supported.
There is also a huge lack of credible consumer reviews available so we cannot rely on any testimonials purporting to back up these claims due to a high risk of bias or fictitiousness.
Based on the characteristics of the ingredients used in Appatrol capsules (and stimulants more generally), the pills should also not be used by those who:
– Are more sensitive to stimulants.
– Have high blood pressure.
– Have currently or have previously had any mental illness or psychological disorder.
– Have any family history of heart defects.
– Are pregnant and/or nursing.
– Have any other underlying medical condition and have not sought professional medical advice prior to purchasing them.

Key Appatrol Ingredients
The makers of Appatrol pride themselves on the fact that only three ingredients are used to make their pills. Due to this, there is no ‘main’ ingredient so to speak and there is no specific compound that stands out as doing most of the work.
All three ingredients are emphasised as being ‘100% natural and 100% safe’ as the manufacturers claim that they are used in the safest possible amounts even though no other information is provided to clarify this.
In terms of controversy, though the more ill researched ingredients used in the pill would be the plant extract Caralluma Fimbriata closely followed by Synephrine, there has been little evidence to suggest a solid basis for using these ingredients and even less proof as to the side effects, they might cause.
|Weight Loss Power:||50/100|
No information is given regarding the amounts of ingredients that have been used in the pill and so we cannot predict any results in terms of weight loss accurately. This is also due to the fact that there are no reliable consumer reviews to cross-reference and so there really is no solid basis for us to say that the pills will do what they are claimed to do. However, we cannot rule out the weight loss properties of the pills completely as there have been various clinical trials that back up some of the statements concerning how the ingredients work.
|Speed of results:||50/100|
It is impossible for us to predict the speed of results given as we do not know how powerful the capsules are However, it is understood that you should not expect over-night results as this is not a miracle pill. Appatrol does say, however, that you should have seen results in the first 15 days (as this is the basis for the money back guarantee). Faster results will also be obtained if you combine the pills with a diet and exercise regime.
For more information read our How to use Appartrol article.
Appatrol claims to work as a powerful appetite suppressant but in reality there is no solid evidence that can back up this claim. The ingredients that it uses for reducing appetite have not been well researched and even if they did exhibit these properties there is no telling whether there are enough of them included in the pill to provide any significant effect on the appetite.
|Long Term Results:||40/100|
Appatrol comes with no free and encouraged diet or exercise plan worked into the routine of taking the pills. This makes long-term outcomes very hard to obtain since as soon as you stop taking them your appetite will increase and thus it is likely that you will in fact put back on the weight you have lost, if you have not changed your lifestyle habits during the period in which you have taken the pills. See our top rated diet pills.
Based on the ingredients used in the pill, when the correct dosage is followed there is no risk of any serious side effects. The manufacturers of Appatrol also emphasise on their website that although 2 out of 3 of the ingredients are stimulants, they are used in small amounts in order to avoid any side effects as much as possible – see our article Appatrol Side Effects.
|Value for money:||50/100|
Appatrol is priced at around £30 for one bottle of 60 capsules which they say will last for a month. However, if you are taking the recommended three per day then this obviously is not the case. Although not largely overpriced, Appatrol does have large shipping charges and all of its diet and exercise information must be paid for separately and in addition to the pills. As well as this, there is the fact that due to the lack of quantitative information on the website, the results of the pill cannot be guaranteed and so the pills are somewhat of a financial risk.

Appatrol Side Effects
The main message that Appatrol tries to get across is that it ‘does not have any side effects’ as opposed to other stimulant based diet pills. This, they say, is because of the small amount of stimulant ingredients used.
We do not have any information however as to how much of each ingredient is in the capsules and so there is no evidence to rule out any of the side effects that come with stimulants in general. This includes: insomnia, anxiety and jitters all of which the manufacturers of Appatrol deny that the pills will cause.
However, there is also no evidence to prove that Appatrol can come with any serious side effects when the ingredients are used in ‘small amounts’ so it does appear to be fairly safe. It is likely that if anything, users would probably only experience mildly unpleasant side effects that would not cause too much harm and certainly would not be life threatening.

Where to Buy Appatrol
If you have decided to purchase the Appatrol diet pills, we would recommend having a look at our Where to Buy Appatrol article.
Contrary to Appatrol’s claims, the potential it has to be a significant weight loss aid is fairly low. It doesn’t seem to be much different from most other stimulant based diet products on the market and taking the pills alone is unlikely to have any significant effect.
Having said this, with no information about the quantities of ingredients, we cannot accurately predict whether the pills will have the weight loss properties that Appatrol states and, more importantly, there is no evidence whatsoever to suggest that you will not suffer from any side effects which is what Appatrol claims makes their product unique.
There is also an issue concerning international orders and shipping on the website which seems to make purchasing the pills a lot harder (and more costly) for customers who do not live in Australia, this hardly seems worth the effort when the outcome of taking the pills is uncertain.
Further to this, the company seems to be encouraging consumers to buy expensive ‘add-ons’ to the pills in every section of its website which shows that on the whole they are very money orientated which would put us off of buying from them. We emphasise that you absolutely do not need an expensive book or DVD to tell you how to exercise.
For these reasons, we would not recommend purchasing Appatrol for weight loss purposes, as there are much better and more researched alternatives on the market. Due to the uninformative website (in terms of quantities of ingredients), we believe that buying the pills would be an unnecessary financial risk which is likely to result in very little, if any realistic weight loss results.
