How Apetone Syrup works

Apetone Syrup is a combination of two appetite enhancers: Lysine and Cyproheptadine. Lysine is a building block of essential proteins which improve appetite and digestion. Cyproheptadine works by reducing the effect of a chemical messenger (serotonin) in the hypothalamus, a part of the brain which regulates appetite.
