Alli Fat Blocker ReviewAlli is a non-prescription weight loss aid designed to help dieters lose weight by blocking fat. It was developed and manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline, a large UK pharmaceutical company. Alli is FDA approved

The active ingredient in Alli is orlistat, which is an FDA approved prescription drug that has been subject to over one hundred clinical studies. However, the reason a prescription is not required for Alli is it uses only 60 mg of orlistat in its formula compared to the 120 mg that is used in prescription orlistat (Xenical). Its lower dose makes it OTC compatible. Other ingredients in Alli include:, Edible Ink, FD&C Blue 2, Gelatin, microcystalline cellulose, Iron Oxide, Povidone, , sodium starch glycolate, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate Titanium Dioxide, and Talc.
According to the official website for Alli, this pill works by preventing your body from absorbing approximately 25% of the fat you ingest. The fats that you don’t absorb are eliminated from your body through bowel movements. This also lowers the amount of calories that are absorbed. More specifically, Alli is not a stimulant or an appetite suppressant, it is a lipase inhibitor. It prevents an enzyme known as lipase from breaking down fat while it is present in the digestive tract. The undigested fat continues to move through the intestines and becomes waste.

Alli is available in capsule form and should be taken orally up to three times a day either one hour before or one after eating a meal. This pill should be taken only when you consume a meal that contains some fat. According to the official website, it is recommended that users of Alli consume no more than 15 grams of fat per meal to avoid the risk of unpleasant side effects. It is also recommended that users should take a daily multivitamin before bed, to help ensure that they are achieving sufficient vitamin absorption. Vitamins should not be taken at the same time as Alli.

Unwanted side effects can occur while taking Alli. This may include diarrhea, gas, oily or loose stool, intestinal cramps, etc. In addition, taking this pill can lead to nutrient deficiency because it may make it harder for your body to digest fat-soluble vitamins.

Alli is meant for adults, 18 years of age or older, who are overweight and who have already tried other dieting and exercise options. It is important that those who take this weight loss aid follow a low-fat and reduced calorie diet. It is strongly recommended that you first speak with your healthcare provider before taking this product.
