Can a couple of small capsules taken just before eating really protect against obesity and allow the user to eat the foods they enjoy without risking their health or outgrowing their pants? Bauer Nutrition claim their Proactol XS fat binder capsules can do exactly that.
It’s one of those claims that sounds like it may be nothing but hot air, but in this case tests have been done (over 40 of them), evidence has been gathered, and all the right things are being said by all the right people. What are they saying?
- It can bind at least 800 times its own weight in fat.
- It’s 33% more efficient that other fat binders
- It offers reliable safe weight loss
- Lowers cholesterol intake (from diet)
How Proactol XS Works
Proactol XS has been designed to assist the weight management requirements of overweight people with a body mass index of 26 or higher.
Two capsules are taken with a large glass of water, 3 times a day, just before eating a main meal. Once ingested the water dissolves the capsule casing and mixes with the main ingredient to form a jelly-like substance within the stomach.
When the meal is consumed any fat present is attracted to the main ingredient and becomes trapped.
|Promised Benefit||How this is Achieved|
|When fat is absorbed by the fat binder it cannot be digested and cannot contribute to weight gain. Use of the fat binder may result in a severe reduction in calories—the body will be forced to turn to existing fat stores for energy.|
|Cholesterol is a form of fat, as such it can be easily waylaid by fat binding products.|
|The combined mass of a fat binder and the fat it has bound can make the stomach feel full and curb the appetite.|
Fat Binders Explained
Fat binding products contain ingredients that are impervious to human digestive acids and cannot be absorbed. They offer no nutritional value at all, but have the ability to absorb large amounts of fat so, as a weight management tool, their value is immeasurable.
Supplement v Medical Device
Proactol XS is produced in capsule form. Because of this it is an easy matter to take one look at its oval shape and class it as a supplement, but such a conclusion would be made in error. Bauer are keen to point out Proactol XS is a medical device, not a supplement.
Supplements contain nutrients that cause changes in the way the body functions. Some appetite suppressants, for instance, trigger the release of certain hormones which then produce a state of fight or flight in the body which can dull the appetite. Fat burning supplements produce changes that result in more efficient fat burning. The important word in all cases is ‘changes’. Supplements cause changes (hopefully for the better), medical devices do not.
Proactol XS contains just one key ingredient. It’s called chitosan and it’s an ingredient that can be found in several other leading products that promise fat binding. Not all forms of chitosan are created equal though. In most cases chitosan [as used in weight management products] is sourced from the shells of deep sea crustaceans, with shrimp being the most popular donor species.
Chitosan sourced in this manner offers undeniable benefits as a fat binding ingredient, but it not the most potent form of chitosan and its obvious connections with sea food means it is often unsuitable for anyone who is allergic to such foods (30% of the population). It is also unsuitable for vegetarians.
The chitosan type (biopolymer N-acetyl-D-glucosamine and D-glucosamine) used in Proactol XS is harvested from the mycelium (vegetative area) of aspergillus niger (a species of fungus) and this form of chitosan has been proven to possess significantly more powerful fat binding power than chitosan that has been harvested from marine-living crustaceans. It’s 100% safe, non-allergenic, and has been certified 33% more efficient than animal-derived chitosan.
