Manufacturer: India Gen manufactures Orlistat.
The uses of Orlistat include:
FDA-approved weight loss aid with an individually tailored support plan, to help achieve gradual and healthy weight loss. When you take along with a reduced-calorie, low-fat diet, you can lose about 50% more weight than dieting alone. For example, instead of losing 10 pounds with diet alone, you can lose 15 pounds.
Orlistat is safe - it works in your digestive system, not in your heart or brain. It will not cause jitters, sleeplessness, or a racing heart. You can't just try - you have to commit to it. We encourage you to read more and see if you agree with the statements at the end of this brochure, before you buy. More information can be found at Or, talk to your doctor, pharmacist, or dietitian to help determine if you're ready.
It works Typically, enzymes in your intestines break down fat from food so your body can absorb the fat. But, the active ingredient attaches to some of these enzymes and prevents them from digesting about a quarter of the fat you eat. Because undigested fat can't be absorbed, it passes out of your body instead of turning into calories.
