Xenical (active ingredient Orlistat) is a prescription weight loss supplement that is to be used only by those with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or more.
The pill is a serious drug that prevents your body from absorbing fat and in order to help the pill work, it’s important that users maintain a calorie-reduced diet.
How does Xenical work?
Xenical works by inhibiting enzymes that break down triglycerides, therefore stopping them from turning into free fats. It is said that Xenical can block up to 30% of your dietary fat intake from being absorbed.
Xenical side effects
Because Xenical is such a serious drug, it is very potent and does come with some serious side effects. These include: oily-looking spotting; flatulence and discharge; diarrhea; excessive bowel movements; and incontinence.
In addition to those, there are many other: abdominal pain, nausea, back pain, arthritis, tendonitis, joint problems; hearing difficulties; and sleep disorders.
Do we recommend Xenical?
Due to the amount of serious side effects, it is not recommended that anyone take Xenical to help them lose weight. Should a doctor prescribe it, it’s imperative that users maintain a calorie and fat-reduced diet the entire time they are taking the pill. Failing to do won’t only render the drug ineffective, but it could also cause side effects, forcing them to show up much more often and much more intensely.
Proactol Plus is 100% herbal alternative to Xenical. Also being fat binder, Proactol can bind and stop up to 27% of your dietary fat intake safely. More importantly, Proactol doesn’t carry any negative side effects with it and it has numerous positive success stories.
