Xenical orlistat is one of the best selling slimming pills today. By blocking the absorption of fats in the meal, the drug has effectively helped to arrest the rising graph of obesity. Xenical orlistat was approved by the US FDA for use as a prescription-only slimming pill in 1999. The drug is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for obesity. However, Xenical does not claim itself to be a miracle drug. You'll still need to diet and exercise to achieve your weight loss goal. Xenical only works as a weight-loss aid, helping you get more effective results than what you could have managed through dieting and exercise alone.

Obesity treatment
Obesity is defined as a condition in which a person suffers from excess bodyweight and fat. The number of obese people is rising steadily worldwide, more so in developed countries. Obesity is considered a serious medical condition as it may cause various life-threatening conditions such as heart diseases, type II diabetes, cancers of certain types, breathing difficulties during sleep and osteoarthritis.

The biggest contributor towards obesity is the modern day sedentary lifestyle. People are engaged in physically less demanding work and have developed an unhealthy lifestyle. Their calorie consumption is much more than the calories they burn. The accumulation of excess calories makes a person obese.

The best and the most effective obesity treatments are dieting and exercise. People should refrain from eating high-calorie junk food and consume a balanced meal in moderation that will provide the body with all the necessary nutrients. People should also incorporate some sort of physical exercise in their daily routine. Experts recommend at least 30-40 minutes of rigorous exercise everyday.

Slimming pills
In case, dieting and exercise fail to give you the desired result, obesity patients may discuss the use of slimming pills with their doctor. A large number of both prescription and non- prescription slimming pills are available on the market today. Experts warn people from falling prey to the attractive advertisements given by the manufacturers of over-the-counter slimming pills. People who claim that they can make you slim overnight are obviously cheating you. Besides, many non- prescription slimming pills contain ingredients which may be harmful to your health. Hence, it is best to go for prescription slimming pills such as Xenical. Prescription drugs are approved only after they pass a series of stringent tests to prove their safety and efficacy. Also, since prescription drugs can only be taken after consulting a doctor, it helps to prevent the risk of side effects. Your doctor will not allow you to use the drug if it is suspected to be harmful for your health.

How Xenical helps in obesity treatment?
Xenical works as a fat absorption inhibitor slimming pill. This means, it prevents a certain percentage of fat in your diet from being absorbed into your body. The active ingredient in Xenical is called orlistat; it works on the digestive system to inhibit the absorption of fat molecules. It attaches to the enzymes called lipases that are present inside our digestive system. The function of the lipase enzyme is to breakdown the fat into simple molecules so that it can be absorbed by the body. Xenical works by preventing the function of lipases. Xenical orlistat attaches itself to lipases and prevents them from breaking down some of the fat molecules. The undigested fat molecules cannot be absorbed by the body and are thus eliminated from the body through normal bowel movement. By working in this way, Xenical Orlistat helps to block about 30% of the dietary fat from being absorbed into your body. Xenical reduces your calorie intake in every meal you take and thereby helps you lose weight gradually.

Xenical precautions

  • Xenical is only suggested for patients with a BMI above 30 or for patients with a BMI of 27 or greater if they have other risk factors, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol etc.
  • Xenical should never be taken without consulting a doctor
  • Inform about your medical conditions, medicines you may be taking, and weight loss efforts you have made in the past while discussing Xenical
  • Xenical should always be taken in conjunction with a physician supervised low-cal diet to avoid experiencing embarrassing Xenical side effects such as uncontrolled bowel movement, flatulence, oily spotting  and fatty or oily stool
  • Do take the recommended multi-vitamin pill as Xenical is known to prevent the absorption of certain fat-soluble vitamins
  • Inform your doctor if any of the Xenical side effects become particularly bothersome
