What are the strongest weight loss pills available?
Today, we will compare the two most popular weight loss drugs, Alli vs Lipozene, and compare their ingredients and effectiveness to find out how they work and which one is safer.
Orlistat is a pharmaceutical drug, sold over-the-counter as Alli and by prescription as Xenical. The main ingredient in Alli is Orlistat, a white powder-like substance that inhibits pancreatic and gastric lipases thus reducing weight.
How it works
This weight loss pill works by inhibiting the breakdown of fat in the intestines, making you consume fewer calories from fat.
According to a large review of 11 studies, orlistat can lead to weight loss of 6 pounds
Weight loss is the main one. Orlistat significantly re (2.7 kg) compared to a dummy pill (13).
Alidus benefits for weight loss by inhibiting an enzyme called pancreatic lipase that breaks down food in the intestine. When you take Alli, you essentially reduce the amount of lipase in your gut, which means that the food you eat won’t turn into fatty acids. It reduces your daily calorie count.
Orlistat has been shown to slightly lower blood pressure and in one study (14, 15) reduced the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 37%.
According to Alli reviews on Expertratedreviews, Orlistat has side effects when it removes fat from the body. These effects cause discomfort due to flatulence, sudden diarrhea or reduced absorption of vitamins by the body. This drug has many digestive side effects, including loose, oily stools, flatulence, frequent bowel movements that are difficult to control, and others. It can also contribute to fat-soluble vitamin deficiencies, such as vitamins A, D, E, and K.
To reduce side effects, it is generally recommended to follow a low-fat diet.
Interestingly, a low-carb diet (without medication) has been shown to be just as effective as orlistat and a low-fat diet combined (16).
This drug works a little differently. In fact, the principles by which lipogen works are still not clear. But according to some clinical trials, the drug’s main ingredient, glucomannan (a natural fiber), reduces daily calorie intake by faking a feeling of fullness. In other words, it suppresses your appetite. It also contains other ingredients such as green tea, vitamins and koala nuts, however, glucomannan remains the only active ingredient in Lipozin.
Now, Lipogen is supported by clinical trials. Also, you can test the effectiveness of the drug by getting free samples. But the official website of the drug does not provide potential customers with sufficient information about the product, and the drug itself does not burn fat, despite what its manufacturers claim. All this becomes a reason for negative feedback.
Also there is not much information about the ingredients of Lipozene, which makes this medicine risky due to unwanted side effects. You can’t be sure what the consequences of taking Lipozene might be for you.
Which one is better?
To finish the discussion, we just have to remember that Lipozene is not approved by the FDA due to its mysterious composition. Alli also has its drawbacks, with negative side effects being the main ones. Nevertheless, clinical trials have shown that Alli is both effective and stable. The results are clearly visible after a short time. And Alli is approved by the FDA, which means it is safer than Lipozene.
