Define Reductil sibutramine

Reductil sibutramine works as an appetite suppressant and satiety enhancer. It helps your brain to feel “full” even when you have eaten less. Sibutramine – the active ingredient in Reductil belongs to a class of medicines called serotonin- noradrenaline reuptake inhibitor.

When we eat, the neurotransmitters in our brain produce two naturally occurring chemicals noradrenaline and serotonin. When the level of these chemicals reaches a certain level we feel full and we stop eating. Once we stop eating, the noradrenaline and serotonin are reabsorbed into the nerve cells. Eventually, when the level of these chemicals readily available goes down below a certain level, we feel like eating again.

Reductil sibutramine works by preventing the re-uptake of noradrenaline and serotonin, so more of these chemicals remain in the space between the brain's nerve cells. This mechanism makes you feel full even when you have eaten less. Further, your appetite between meals will be suppressed so you do not feel the urge to eat fatty snacks. Thus by reducing the intake of calorie, Reductil sibutramine diet pills helps you to gradually lose weight.
