B-Slenda is a nonprescription weight loss product that claims to be an effective fat binder made out of natural ingredients. Its primary focus is – as its category suggests – to help a dieter to reduce the number of calories absorbed into the body through the fats that he or she eats in his or her food.

It aims to be able to help dieters to be able to lose weight without having to suffer from hunger pangs due to diets that are significantly lower in fat and calories. The entire product is centered around its main active ingredient, which is called FibrePrecise. The claim that the manufacturer has made about this product is that it will help dieters to be able to reduce the calories that they are absorbing without having to decrease the amount of foods that they are eating – particularly in the way that crash dieting would require.

To understand whether or not this product could actually live up to its promises, it is important to take a closer look at its formula as well as what studies have been done on those substances or on the product as a whole.

The claim by the manufacturer of B-Slenda, Pharma Nord, from the United Kingdom, is that the FibrePrecise ingredient will bind itself to fats that are consumed in food so that they will become too large to be absorbed by the body. This indicates that since it cannot be absorbed, it will simply pass harmlessly through the body with the rest of the waste. The substance is made up of a natural fiber that is found primarily in shellfish. It is what is known as a second generation fiber, which indicates that it will bind exclusively to fat and not to carbs, sugars, or alcohol, for example.

The official website of the product claims that this fat binder is so effective that it will reduce the number of grams of fat from a meal by up to 20 grams per consumed tablet. This would be the equivalent of up to about 180 calories per pill.

Unfortunately, at the time of this review, the official website made absolutely no mention of any clinical or scientific studies that would suggest that this ingredient is capable of performing what it claims to be able to do. This makes the product extremely hard to recommend, as any opinion regarding its efficacy would be based exclusively on the marketing literature.

The Vitabase Fat Blocker provides clear claims about what it says that it will provide to dieters. It states that it will assist in blocking the absorption and storage of fat, making it easier for a dieter to be able to lose weight. Moreover, it also claims that certain food sugars can also be blocked through the use of this product.

Though it claims that it is “Dr Passero Approved”, at the time of this review, it had not mentioned any specific clinical studies to support the claims of the entire formula or to indicate that any of the individual ingredients can provide the type of outcomes that it claims. That said, upon researching the main ingredients in the formula, it does look as though two of them might have some impact on weight loss. The problem is that the official website does not reveal how much of each ingredient is contained within the formula, so it is not possible to verify whether enough has been used in order to produce the potential benefits.

The main ingredients in the Vitabase Fat Blocker are: Vitamin C, Vitamin B2, Gymnema Sylvestre, Garcinia Cambogia and Chitosan. The vitamins in this formula are contained in low doses (for example, only 25 milligrams of Vitamin C), but they are not the main contributors to the formula. Vitamin C, for example, is a healthy antioxidant but it is not associated with any form of weight loss benefit. B vitamins are known to help to help with food metabolism and frequently passed through the body quite quickly so this may provide some benefit, in theory.

Gymnema sylvestre, assuming that it is used in an adequate quantity, could help to regulate blood glucose levels. This doesn’t directly lead to weight loss, but it can help to avoid blood glucose spikes and drops that often result in shaky motivation and food cravings. Chitosan is an ingredient that has some potential in this formula, if used properly, as it has been shown to have some appetite suppressing benefits in certain small, short-term studies. It is a type of fiber, and when taken with enough water, it can help to provide the body with a fuller feeling. Garcinia cambogia was once considered to be a very powerful fat burner. It acts as a stimulant which can help to shrink the appetite. The problem is that it needs to be taken in massive quantities to be effective, as it is weaker than regular caffeine.

The Accuslim Fat Blocker is marketed as a diet supplement that gives you the ability to eat what you want without having to feel guilty. The official website for the product explains that fiber is the central element that should be considered for stopping the body from absorbing excess fat. It stated that fat becomes trapped before it can be taken in by the body to either be used as energy, or stored as body fat.

If this pill actually does as its manufacturers claim, it could mean that it could considerably reduce the number of calories that a dieter will take in from having consumed his or her foods in a day. As fats are typically very high in calories, by blocking a certain percentage of the total that is eaten from being used as energy (immediate or stored) it can help to keep caloric intake under control without having to sacrifice favorite foods.

However, the Accuslim Fat Blocker official website did not, at the time of this review, include the percentage of fat that will actually be blocked from being absorbed.

The website indicated that Liposan Ultra: Chitosan and vitamin C were the ingredients in the formula. Those two ingredients are all that makes up the product. Chitosan is a substance that is obtained from the shells of seafood such as crab and shrimp. According to the manufacturer, this substance is able to surround the fat that is consumed in the form of food, stopping it from being absorbed by the body, allowing the fat to progress right through the digestive system without being absorbed.

There are a number of studies that suggest that this claim may be true, though not to the point that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the substance for this purpose. The FDA feels strongly enough about this fact that it contacted eVitamins.com in 2004 with regards to two products that contained chitosan. The claims associated with those products were that they would bind to fat and therefore make it easier for users to lose weight. According to the FDA, there was inadequate scientific data to support these claims.

The manufacturers of Accuslim Fat Blocker claim that its product is easier to absorb than other supplements containing chitosan, so that it can be taken at mealtime without having to wait 30 minutes to an hour in advance. No link or reference to clinical or scientific research trials are made to indicate that this claim is true.

Alli is a diet supplement manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline, a major pharmaceutical company. It is formulated to help dieters with their weight loss efforts. This pill has received FDA approval and is available over the counter, without a prescription from a doctor.

The pills are sold online at a number of different online and brick-and-mortar pharmacies, as well as at the official website, where the 60 capsule starter bottle cost $44.99 at the time of this review. According to that same site, Alli is an “anti-obesity wonder drug” and it claims to reach its maximum efficacy when it is taken along with a healthy well balanced diet and a regular daily exercise program.

The primary active ingredient in Alli weight loss pills is Orlistat (also known as Xenical), which is found in some prescription weight loss drugs. This pill works by decreasing up to a quarter of the body’s ability to absorb fat from the food that is eaten every day.

That said, there are some side effects associated with the use of a fat absorption blocking pill such as Alli. These can include loose stool, excessive flatulence, and vitamin deficiency. In order to minimize those effects, doctors will typically recommend that patients taking this pill will consume a diet that is lower in fat, and will take a daily multivitamin to avoid deficiencies of nutrients that are lost through the decrease in fat absorption.

The official website for Alli claims that the way it works is that the use of this supplement can change the process by which triglycerides are broken down by the body. One of the pancreatic enzymes responsible for the breakdown of fats so that they can be absorbed into the body is blocked. This stops the fat from being able to be absorbed.

Alli is designed for both obese women and men, as well as for people who are overweight to the point of being almost obese.

Many patients appreciate that this pill does not require a prescription because it means that they can make their purchase without having to make an appointment. That said, it does have FDA approval, which gives many customers a sense of security over the safety of the pill (when properly used) over the hundreds of products that do not have this approval. However, it is still recommended that you speak to your doctor before undertaking any weight loss effort to make sure that you will be making the most effective and healthiest choices for your medical needs and expectations.
