Many products on the market claim to help you eat less, or burn fat, or prevent fat absorption. How many of those claims actually have the scientific evidence to back up their claims? There are actually pills that absorb fat that you ingest. Pills such as Alli, Herbalife Thermo Bond, and Chitosan are just a few of the best selling or most popular of pills that absorb fat.
Alli is a very popular fat absorbing pill, many times alli can be found in retail chains. Alli is priced anywhere between $40.00-$60.00 for a bottle count of 90-120. Alli can be taken up to 3 times a day so that is about 30-40 days. Alli has been shown to decrease fat absorption, in turn reducing calories that are ingested and consumed. However, users lose a modest amount of weight, about 3-4 pounds more than they do with a healthy diet and exercise alone.
Herbalife Thermo Bond actually has multiple live demonstrations showing the product in action. This is one of the pills that absorb fat very well. The products demonstration shows oil on top of water, then the pill gets crushed up and put into the water. At which point the pill sucks all the oil from the top of the water and turns it into a solid and pulls it down to the bottom of the cup. Herbalife Thermo Bond is all natural and has been proven more safe than the leading competitors. Herbalife thermo bond can be found on sites such as amazon, the price is about $40.00 for a bottle of 90 count.
Chitosan actually comes from the exoskeleton of certain shellfish such as crabs. It is used in medicine as well as diet pills. Chitosan is used in the treatment of obesity. Chitosan is used to prevent the absorption of fat, however in recent studies there is some evidence against this. Chitosan has been thought to only be a safety issue for people who are pregnant or allergic to shellfish. Other than that it seems to be completely safe, though possibly not effective. Chitosan can be found online for under $20.00 per 120 count.
There are many choices to buy diet pills, though few actually absorb the fat. These few pills that absorb fat are priced based on evidential effectiveness. All the fat absorbing pills have not been shown to have any serious side effects. Although Alli users should keep an eye out for liver damaging effects that may or may not be linked to the product. Thermabond seems to be a more popular choice and has existing evidence that supports its effectiveness. Chitosans effectiveness really is unknown.
