Fattache (spelled Fattaché on the product label), is a natural product for weight loss. Its formulation was developed to promote the rapid elimination of fat from the body before ingested fat can be digested.
It supposedly works by chemically binding to fat lipids in the stomach before it’s digested and absorbed into the bloodstream. This helps in the absorption of fewer calories and less fat, ultimately assisting in weight loss.
The Fattache formula is composed of: Chitosan, Psyllium Seed (husks) Powder, Karaya Gum, Apple Pectin.
Here’s a look at the benefits these ingredient are believed to provide as a fat blocker:
Chitosan, which is extracted from the shells of lobsters, crabs and shrimps, is a fibrous substance that might help block the absorption of dietary fat and cholesterol.
Psyllium seed is an herb that absorbs water and bulks up to help stimulate or slow bowl movements. It might also reduce the amount of cholesterol the body absorbs.
Karaya gum is a sap-like substance that swells in the intestines and stimulates the digestive track to increase the movement of stool.
Apple pectin adds bulk to stool, binding substances in the intestine.
Overall, while these ingredients are likely to affect digestion and waste elimination, their actual benefits in regard to weight loss are either unsubstantiated or unknown. It has never been scientifically proven that ingesting any of these ingredients will lead to measureable weight loss. It is more likely that what will be lost is excess water, which can help slim you down but has nothing to do with eliminating fat-related weight.
That being said, in regard to using Fattache, the recommend dose is to take 2 capsules 15 minutes before meals, preferably with 8 ounces of water or as directed by your healthcare provider. That being said, if you are eating a meal low in fat, it isn’t necessary to take these supplements as they are meant to help block fat.
While there is no proof that taking Fattache will result in the elimination of fat, even if this does occur, keep in mind that this loss of fat will not be sufficient enough to cause measureable weight loss. You should still engage in fitness appropriate exercise and eat a well-balanced and calorie-reduced diet for optimal results.
Fattache should not be taken by anyone who has an allergy to shellfish or any of the product’s other ingredients. Pregnant or nursing women, or individuals taking medications or who have existing health conditions should first speak with their healthcare provider before taking Fattache.
