Achieving your desired weight loss can be hard because your body weight is affected by a range of factors. If you’re over a certain BMI and persistently struggling to make progress, though, you can get help in the form of tried and tested weight loss pills. They won’t magically get you where you want to go, but they’ll make the journey somewhat easier.
Orlistat 120mg Capsules are clinically proven to help you shed pounds and achieve a healthy weight. Available if you have a BMI of 25 or more, these capsules offer a safe way to get closer to your desired weight.
Alli 60mg Capsules are among the most effective weight loss capsules available. Ideal for someone with a body mass index (BMI) of 25 or over, these capsules can help you lose weight quickly and healthily.
Xenical 120mg Capsules have been used safely for over 20 years. If your BMI is over 25 they can help you lose weight when your efforts to exercise and diet haven’t paid off.
How do weight loss pills work?
Weight loss pills work in various ways. Certain medications increase your metabolism and enhance your body’s ability to burn fat, while others limit the amount of fat your body can absorb from food. Some simply act as appetite suppressants.
As excess fats contribute to weight gain due to their high calorie content, taking prescription weight loss treatments can help you lose an extra 1lb for every 2lbs you lose through diet and exercise - around 50% extra than with just dieting and exercise.
The Independent Pharmacy offers three prescription weight loss pills in capsule form:
- Alli 60mg Capsules
- Orlistat 120mg Capsules
- Xenical 120mg Capsules
Below, we’ve explained how each of these weight loss slimming pills works:
How do Alli 60mg Capsules help you lose weight?
Alli 60mg Capsules help you lose weight by blocking 25% of the fat you would ordinarily absorb. You need to take one capsule three times a day (one with each main meal) for the treatment to work.
How do Orlistat 120mg Capsules help you lose weight?
Orlistat 120mg Capsules help reduce your weight by blocking the enzymes in your gut that are responsible for digesting fat. This means nearly 33% of the fat you eat is blocked and passed with your stools instead of being absorbed by your body. You need to take Orlistat 120mg Capsules alongside an exercise regime and a low-fat diet for the treatment to work at its best.
How do Xenical 120mg Capsules help you lose weight?
Xenical 120mg Capsules help you lose weight in the same way as Orlistat 120mg Capsules because the two medications contain the same active ingredient of Orlistat. This means that all the advice that applies to Orlistat also applies here.
