Thankfully, in this post, you are going to find the right answers to all these critical questions from personal experience, deeper research and interviews from a cross section of people, men, women, and young ladies who have used the syrup.
First, most of the articles about fitness usually talk about losing weight. In fact, data from a survey conducted by the American Psychological Association showed that about half of Americans try to lose weight year in; year out.
However, this does not undermine the fact that some people actually struggle to gain weight which accounts for a number of reasons.
Some people are genetically very thin, some have autoimmune diseases that make it difficult to put on weight; some people are simply not eating enough due to low appetite, while some simply want to put on muscle or achieve weight gain goals.
And so, resorting to a vitamin syrup such as Apetamin which claims to help you gain weight by stimulating your appetite is nothing far from reasonable.
However, considering the illicit nature of the supplement, it is very important that you know how this works, and the results it can give you within a period of usage so that you can make informed decisions.
So, how does Apetamin work?
Apetamin contains cyproheptadine hydrochloride, it is a powerful antihistamine that is said to stimulate your appetite to promote weight gain.
This is what you will possibly see in every answer to how the vitamin syrup works. But the actual breakdown of how it works for weight gaining is derived from several theories studied by doctors.
For instance, the cyproheptadine hydrochloride contained in the substance is said to interfere with a part of the brain called the hypothalamus which regulates appetite, cravings for food consumption, and many hormones.
There is also a study that shows the cyproheptadine hydrochloride may increase levels of an hormone called insulin-like growth factor (IGF-I) in children who are underweight.
In addition, a study has shown that the amino acid found in apetamin syrup called lysine has led to increased appetite and weight gain in animals, but there’s no research on the appetite effects of l-lysine effect in humans.
Apetamin is manufactured in Syrup and pill; while the syrup form includes vitamins and amino acids, the tablets/caplets form only consist of the cyproheptadine hydrochloride.
The syrup form is the most common way people take in the supplement, and just so you know, it tastes like any cough syrup.
There is still research needed to be carried out on how this substance increases appetite. But, many loyal users of the medication have taken to their social media platform to share the results of the syrup after intake…some positive, few negative.
How long does it take for Apetamin to work?
Everyone is different and the time frame at which the Apetamin Syrup will begin to take effect largely depends on your activity rate and food intake.
What you should know is that your appetite should start to increase in 2 days after you begin the medication. The recommended dosage for adults is 5-10ml at 3 times a day which should be 15 to 20 minutes before meal.
Based on experience, if you are taking the supplement every day twice a day, you could gain up to 5-7 lbs per week, but this should be supported with eating healthy meals and maintain-ace of intermediate workout routine.
You may have ambitious weight gain goals, but it's important to maintain a consistent weight gain over a long time frame to allow your body to gradually adjust to the increased calorie consumption and body size.
Apetamin 1 week result
As mentioned earlier, if you follow the recommended intake of the dosage, the first result you should experience is the increase of your appetite which may start in 2 days after you begin the medication.
Consequently, there is a possibility that you could gain a minimum of 5 lbs in a week. Again, everyone is different and the time frame at which the Apetamin Syrup will begin to take effect largely depends on your activity rate and food intake.
Does Apetamin make you thick?
You should know that Apetamin does not literally make you fat, it only stimulates your appetite so you can consume more food (calories) such that it leads to body building and subsequent weight gain.
Some people who use the supplement have been using them to boost their muscle mass and prepare for various events such as powerlifting competitions. Also, many women who are naturally thin have used apetamin syrup to get the curves they desire.
Does Apetamin work for everyone?
While there are more women with enlarged butt and breasts recommending the syrup on social media, it is said to be applicable for both men and women. Apetamin, as a matter of fact, is not even a hip or boobs enlargement product. It simply claims to be for weight gaining.
However, some people are not advised to even think of using the product. These sets of people include: pregnant or lactating women, people allergic to cyproheptadine or any similar drug, people residing in a country, area or weather that is usually hot, alcohol addicts, as well as kids below 2 years of age.
In a nutshell…
So far, we have been able to look into how Apetamin Syrup works in weight gaining, how long it takes to work, as well as the expected result within particular time frames.
However, the result, as gathered from experience and conversations with loyal users of Apetamin, does not undermine the side effects.
When you eventually decide to stop taking the medication, you want to be careful of how you go about it as some side effects are bound to follow such as dizziness, headaches, and in some cases, abdominal pain. We have talked extensively about this and how to prevent it in a recent post HERE.
