Questions & Answers
PinnoThin® is an all-natural appetite suppressant which promotes a satiety feeling. It contains pure, all-natural oil, extracted from the nuts of the Korean pine tree. Clinical studies have shown that PinnoThin® ones taken up in the body can help control your calorie intake by reducing appetite and creating a feeling of 'fullness'.
When you eat a meal, the food is digested in the stomach and then goes into the small intestine. As nutrients are absorbed in the small intestines, signals are sent to the brain telling you that you have eaten enough. Two of these signals, cholecystokinin (CCK) and glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP1), have been proven to play an important role in the process of satiety. PinnoThin® and its natural metabolites have been clinically tested to increase the release of these signals telling your body that you have eaten enough. By taking 3 grams of PinnoThin® 1 hour before a meal or in between meals you can help to reduce your meal size and your in between appetite.
