GNC Total Lean Appetrex Control Review

GNC Total Lean Appetrex ControlThis dietary supplement aims to be a complete formula to not only control appetite but increase metabolism and increase energy especially at the beginning of a diet when the idea of dieting is still a tough pill to swallow. (Sorry sometimes the puns just write themselves.)

What’s Inside

Appetrex uses a proprietary herbal blend of 522 mg. That makes up the majority of the compound and makes it hard to compare to other appetite suppressants on the market. In the case of a proprietary blend one must either trust the reputation of the company or rely on user reviews as to the effectiveness of the blend.

Appetrex does however include some known substances that some claim help with weight loss. GNC’s Appetrex formula combines energizing herbs such as yerba mate extract, black tea and chrysin with EGCG, a major thermogenic component of green tea that helps support metabolism. In addition, Appetrex utilizes chromium which is a popular ingredient in most thermogenic fat burners and is thought to support your metabolism by assisting insulin uptake. The presence of B vitamins is meant to help your body use glucose more efficiently and metabolize fats, protein and carbohydrates. B vitamins also play an essential role in energy production; low energy is obviously a problem when you are trying to loose weight. Instead of just suppressing hunger, Appetrex tries to increase your energy and boost metabolism as well.


GNC is a good company that has been around for a long time and is considered by many to be the most trusted name in health. The ingredients that you can actually ascertain are well known and natural with no serious side effects. People have reported feeling mild side effects but nothing as serious as would be expected with a less than natural supplement.


A proprietary blend is common in the natural supplement world but it is difficult to know what it contains and if it would make the product effective. Even a name like GNC does not guarantee the product is the best or even good.

The appetite suppressing function of Appetrex is difficult to compare to other products but the inclusion of thermogenic ingredients in Appetrex seems to be a little weak. It is important to have the right potency of the right ingredients or you end up paying for nothing.


With a name like GNC you aren’t taking as much of a risk as you would with a product from a company you have never heard of. On the other hand, GNC isn’t going to be pushing the boundaries of health science either. Appetrex is a great example of the kind of middle of the road product you can expect from GNC. It works ok but is probably best suited for those who are already in pretty good shape and are looking for help maintaining good health rather than someone who needs a powerful supplement to help them get on the right track.

      Hi Jan,

      Apidexin is not an FDA approved drug as it is a supplement rather than a prescription weight loss aid. You should be able to take it alongside antidepressants, but if you are nervous about certain ingredients, you should talk to your doctor.

      Good luck!
