STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN--(Marketwired - Sep 22, 2015) - Greenleaf Medical is excited to announce that its all-natural and clinically-effective spinach extract, Appethyl™, has been selected as one of the top five finalist for the 2015 SupplySide CPG Editor's Choice Awards in the Weight Management category.

Appethyl is a clinically effective spinach extract shown in well-controlled clinical trials to reduce appetite, while also cutting cravings for unhealthy salty, sweet, and fatty foods, even more, and even after just one dose per three clinical trials. In fact, in one study cravings for unhealthy was reduced up to 95% compared to placebo, as well as producing 43% greater weight loss than those ingesting placebo in that same study, while increasing weight loss 51% more in another weight loss trial.

The spinach extract is carefully processed in a proprietary and patented method in order to free thylakoids, or cellular membranes found in chloroplasts, that are inside the spinach cells. The product is therefore, active or 'bioactive' the moment it is ingested and works by delaying fat digestion, which in turn, naturally increases the body's production of 'satiety' of fullness hormones, making a smaller meal, feel more like a big meal.

Appethyl is one of five consumer packaged goods (CPG) products in the Supplements: Weight Management Category selected by the SupplySide editorial team for achievements in innovation and market impact.

"As a finalist for an Editor's Choice Award, Appethyl is establishing itself as a leader in the weight management industry," said Anders Struksnes, Chief Executive Officer of Greenleaf Medical. "We are honored to be considered for this award alongside other prestigious products."

Winners from each category will be announced at SupplySide West 2015 during the SupplySide CPG Editor's Choice Awards Presentations, set for October 7, 2015 and October 8, 2015 at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.
