In the 20th Century the pharmaceutical and scientific communities focused on the growing obesity epidemic in the United States and 1000’s of weight loss solutions were developed. Meanwhile those of us who struggled to eat regularly and the underweight were left few options. Those options included substances that were not always legal or safe or came with the burden of undesirable side effects. In response to this long neglected problem, Natawill Nutrition has developed Power Appetite. A simple, natural and effective solution to your lack of appetite and inability to gain weight. Power Appetite is an elite combination of six all natural super nutrients selected for their ability and potential to safely and effectively promote a healthy appetite and make you HUNGRY.
Power Appetite contains remarkable ingredients including ginger root and licorice root, two fantastic nutrients that have been used for centuries across several different cultures as trusted natural remedies to soothe upset stomachs and ease indigestion. Ginger is a known sialagogue which means that it promotes the production of saliva. In other words ginger can literally get your digestive juices flowing. Both ginger and licorice root are aromatic spices with bold stimulating flavors. That “spicy kick” will leave your mouth and stomach with a pleasant “warm and fuzzy” feeling shortly after consumption.
Power Appetite also contains the popular herb Echinacea, one of the most widely used supplements in the United States prized for it’s immune system supporting qualities. What you may not know is that Echinacea is also known to have the potential to boost your appetite as well as your immune system. Echinacea contains compounds known as alkylamides that activate receptors in your body called cannabinoid receptors, specifically cannabinoid receptor type 1 or CB-1. Activation of these receptors normally results in an increase in your appetite. There are “other substances” besides Echinacea that activate CB-1 receptors and if you have ever talked to someone who has used one of those substances they will attest that one of the prominent effects is a dramatic surge in appetite known as “the munchies.” Those “other substances” come with an intoxicating effect that not all users find desirable. Echinacea is of course safe, non-intoxicating, non-psychoactive and is completely and totally legal in all 50 states.

Folic acid – Also known as folate, folic acid is part of the B vitamin family and an essential nutrient that has been shown through research to increase hunger, stimulates the production of stomach acid for digestion and promote growth in underweight individuals [1,2]. Some individuals who are struggling to gain weight may even have a folate deficiency . Clinical research encourages athletes to take a supplement that contains folic acid . Power Appetite gives you 100 mcg of Folic Acid in each serving.
Echinacea – Has been used by the North American Indians for thousands of years.

Therefore, taking Echinacea has the potential to dramatically increase your appetite. Power Appetite delivers an ample 1200 mg of Echinacea to you in every serving.
Ginger (Zingiber officinale) – Ginger is another beneficial herb with a rich 2000 year history of use across many different cultures. Ginger is believed to improve various digestive issues such as nutrient absorption, nausea, indigestion, bloating, and gas , thereby improving the appetite and increasing hunger. As an added bonus for weightlifters and body builders a study was done that showed ginger decreases muscle soreness.  Power Appetite provides you with 600 mg of Ginger per serving.
Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) – In Latin it’s called Taraxacum officinale which translates to ‘remedy for man’s illnesses.’ In Korea, it is used to improve energy levels. Dandelion is known for its potency and bitter properties, it stimulates your appetite, helps to balance the beneficial bacteria in your intestines and helps with the digestion of fats. The bitterness of dandelion makes it an appetite stimulant by raising the level of stomach acid , and it is optimal for people with digestive problems or eating disorders due to its ability to improve the health of the digestive system.

Chinese Licorice Root (Glycyrrhiza uralensis) – This strong root has been used for thousands of years in China to revitalize impaired stomach energy and help regulate stomach function. Today Chinese Licorice Root remains the 2nd most popular herb in the Middle Kingdom behind only Ginger.

One particular chemical in Gentian, called secoiridoids, increases the appetite by causing the body to produce more saliva and stomach acid [8, 9]. Power Appetite provides you with 37 mg of Gentian in each serving.

Directions & Precautions
Directions: Adults take 2 capsules twice a day with water. For best results, take Power Appetite capsules 20-40 minutes before your biggest meals of the day.
General Precautions: Do not use Power Appetite if you are pregnant or nursing. Do not use Power Appetite if you are allergic to Ragweed. Do not use Power Appetite if you have an auto-immune disease. Consult a healthcare professional prior to consuming Power Appetite if you are under 18 years of age, have any pre-existing medical conditions, or are taking prescription medications. Use only as directed.
Allergy Warning: Please do not take Power Appetite or any other product containing Echinacea if you have an allergy to Ragweed or any other members of the Asteraceae family such as chrysanthemums, daisies, and marigolds. Power Appetite contains Echinacea, which is a distant cousin of Ragweed, they are both members of the Asteraceae family. The primary risk of Echinacea to individuals who suffer from Ragweed allergy is oral allergy syndrome, a condition in which oral allergic reactions to Ragweed are made worse by exposure to Echinacea or some other substance. Many foods and herbs are known to commonly cause oral allergy syndrome in ragweed allergy sufferers. This list includes banana, chamomile tea, cucumber, dandelion, echinacea, melon (cantaloupe, honeydew and watermelon), sunflower seeds and zucchini.
Echinacea is one of the top 20 supplements used in the United States year after year and you may have noticed that other companies do not provide this allergy notification on their Echinacea containing products. This is because the risk is generally considered to be minimal. Echinacea is widely used every year without widespread reports of adverse effects. Although Echinacea has a long track record of safe use dating back hundreds of years to its extensive use by Native American tribes and is one of the top 20 supplements used in the United States today, we feel that a cautious approach is always best and that is why we do not recommend that people with a Ragweed allergy take Power Appetite or any other nutritional supplement containing Echinacea.
Although the risk of major side effects is minimal, we must insist that you consult with your physician if you have any concerns regarding how Power Appetite or any other nutritional supplement may affect you. This is not due to any specific health risk, but because your Doctor knows your medical history, especially any allergies or herbal sensitivities, much more intimately then we do. Your Doctor is the only person who is qualified to give you medical advice.

Remember, our # 1 rule for considering whether or not to take any product – “Never put anything into your body that you are not 100% comfortable with.”
This goes for foods, medications and especially nutritional supplements, including ours. If you are unsure or uncomfortable about what a product or individual nutrient or any other substance is or does, DO NOT TAKE IT. Period, end of story.
