What is Xenical?
Xenical (orlistat) is one of the only prescription weight loss treatments available to help people suffering with obesity. It has been proven by clinical studies to help patients, with a BMI of over 30, to lose between 5% and 10% of their body weight.
The active ingredient, orlistat, prevents the fat in your diet from being absorbed by your body, as excess weight. Instead of working on your brain, like other obesity medications, it works directly on your digestive system, which makes it a safe and effective choice.
Typically, you should notice an improvement within two to three months of using this medication. However, improvements should come sooner if you combine this treatment with changes to your lifestyle, such as eating healthier and exercising more.
You are advised to take these slimming pills along with a balanced diet with a fat content of around 30% or less.
What are the main advantages of using Xenical?
The good thing about this weight loss treatment is that you don't have to limit yourself to a diet that is difficult to maintain. You should just ensure that you're eating more nutritionally balanced meals.
Another benefit is that it is safer to use than many other obesity treatments. This is because it works in your digestive system, rather than on your brain so it won't affect your mood patterns.
Xenical is also a very convenient course of treatment, which requires you to take one pill with each meal. As well as being easy to maintain, it has also been proven by clinical tests to be one of the most effective obesity treatments around. These studies show that it helps patients with BMIs of over 30 lose between 5% and 10% of their body weight.
How does it work?
The active ingredient in Xenical is orlistat, a natural inhibitor that binds to the enzyme lipase, which is responsible for absorbing fats. In this way, orlistat can stop fats from being properly digested; instead they will be passed out of your body naturally, in the form of faeces.
How do you take Xenical?
It is always advised that you swallow Xenical pills with a glass of water and that you take them during mealtimes, or up to one hour after a meal. Considering this, you should take them three times a day, but if you miss a meal or have a meal without any fat at all, then you don't have to take a pill.
Will I experience any side effects?
Xenical works in the digestive system, so you are more at risk of developing digestive side effects such as wind, sudden bowel movements or oily, fatty-like stools. It has also been associated with headaches, low blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes, chest infections and fatigue.
