BmiSmart I-Remove ReviewBmiSmart I-Remove is an over the counter weight loss product made to provide dieters with support in reaching their weight loss goals. It is made of all natural ingredients and claims to use only substances that have been farmed in an environmentally conscious way.

The ingredients are all sourced from plants farmed in Asia and Europe, says the brand’s official website. Moreover, all the suppliers use farming methods that are environmentally conscious. The site’s explanation doesn’t extend any further to show what exactly that means, but it is certainly something that would appeal to many consumers. The various ingredients are obtained with leaves, fruits, roots and seeds from plants that are “grown in pristine regions” worldwide. Again, it does not provide any specific detail regarding what that means, though they do indicate that every product undergoes rigorous safety and efficacy testing.

The website indicates that by taking this diet pill, a dieter could lose up to three times the amount of weight that they would have lost while unassisted. It is designed to function as a fat binder, which means that it is supposed to stop the body from being able to absorb the total amount of dietary fat the user consumes in his or her meals.

The product’s main ingredient is Litramine, which is a proprietary ingredient that combines prickly pear cactus with acacia. The combination produces a fiber complex that is meant to bind with dietary fat so that the molecule becomes too large for the body to absorb it. The amount of fat not absorbed by the body is then sent out with the rest of the body waste. The website claims that this product block up to 28.39 percent of fat from being absorbed. That said, it doesn’t appear to have any scientific proof that its use actually leads to weight loss in humans. A large study published in a peer reviewed medical journal that would link the use of Litramine with meaningful weight loss could not be found at the time this review was written.

Interestingly, the ingredients in BmiSmart I-Remove are listed as being opuntia ficus-indica (prickly pear) leaf extract and acacia group-gum as well as gamma-cyclodextrin. The natural ingredients in this product are clearly from the gum of a plant and the leaf of a plant. It is unclear as to why the marketing for this product also suggests that it uses fruit, roots and seeds, when it does not.

XLS Medical Direct Fat Binder is a nonprescription weight loss pill that is the second version of the company’s original pill of this nature, which was called XLS Medical Fat Binder. The new version of the product is considered to be quite similar to the original, except that this second form is meant to be more powerful than the first. Equally, it still advertises that it is “gentle on your system,” despite the fact that it is meant to be quite powerful.

From the outset, reading the opening descriptions of the product on the official XLS Medical website, it is clear that some of the claims could be considered to be a little bit iffy. For example, while it does state that it is gentle on the body, it justifies that claim by saying that this is because it is made up of a fat binder from an organic plant source and is therefore naturally well tolerated. As there are thousands of natural plants that could be dangerous or even fatal to take, claiming that a product is gentle just because it comes from an organic plant is quite the deceptive statement.

Finding the ingredients that make up the XLS Medical Direct Fat Binder formula is easy to do on the official website, as there is a section dedicated to the ingredients within their FAQ. That said, it lists the ingredient within these pills as being exclusively Litramine. This is essentially a patented form of opuntia ficus indica extract.

Though opuntia ficus indica has been studied, the research is made up of limited and preliminary studies, and the findings have been inconclusive, at best. While some have suggested that it could be effective enough to be worthy of studies with a larger number of participants, there have also been a few that have stated that the use of this supplement brought about no significant findings.

Among the most relevant studies was one that had only 125 participants (a reputable study that could be considered to be more trustworthy would involve thousands of subjects), some of which were given opuntia ficus indica, and others of which were given a placebo. Those taking Litramine lost an average of twice the weight of those in the placebo group. In rats, it has been found that there is over 15 percent more fat in the fecal matter when taking Litramine, meaning that it passed through the body undigested and did not contribute to calories absorbed into the body.

Though this is promising, it is far from proof. There is a great deal of research needed before this product could call itself scientifically or clinically proven in a way that would be acceptable within the medical community.
