Purium is a weight loss program that claims to be the “FASTEST, healthiest, simplest,” in the world. This program includes a large number of different instructions and products that need to be used in order to follow it properly. That said, it also includes free support from a staff naturopath to anyone who has subscribed.
A part of the Purium weight loss program is the use of CONTROL Pre-Meal Capsules. These are appetite suppressants, among other things. They are meant to reduce the impact of a meal on a person’s ability to lose weight. That said, its description on the official website doesn’t actually say very much in terms of solid claims. At best, it says that the product “may” have certain benefits.
For instance, among the four benefits listed for Purium CONTROL Pre-Meal Capsules, the official site says they “may” help to reduce the appetite and curb food cravings. It also says it “may” support blood glucose stabilization. This supplement “may” also boost endurance, mental alertness and stamina. The only claim that is conclusively made is that it will neutralize starches in processed carbohydrate containing foods.
The official description claims the product has been designed to make it possible for a user to comfortably eat less food. It also says it was made to reduce the carb impact of sugars, which will in turn reduce the risk that they will be converted into fat. The website does not discuss the ingredients in the product or how they are meant to live up to the statements made about its use.
The site recommends that the product be used with any weight loss regimen and says it can also be combined with their CONTROL Whole Food Meal. At the time of the writing of this review, that second product could not be found anywhere on the website, including in the complete list of products they sell in the site’s “Quick Shop” option.
Every bottle contains 180 capsules, which makes up 30 servings. This means that the user will need to be willing to take several capsules every day to follow the recommended usage directions. The package label states that two capsules need to be taken one hour ahead of each of the three main meals of the day. This is a total of six pills per day. They should be taken with eight ounces of water. That said, if a meal is especially fatty or if it is followed by a dessert, an additional capsule should be taken, for a total of three capsules an hour ahead of that meal.
