How Does Proactol XS Work
Fatty foods such as cheese and bacon are as bad for the health as they are for the waistline. Such foods are loaded with calories and begin unloading their belt-busting cargo as soon as they enter the stomach. Any calories the body cannot use are then put aside for later use and stored as body fat.
This is not a desirable state of events. High fat foods play a significant role in weight gain and obesity—a major contributing factor to heart disease.
Enter Proactol XS. It’s a new product manufactured in Europe by Bauer Nutrition. It’s a fat binder that works a little like a gate-keeper for the stomach. Nutrients are digested in the normal manner, but fat is pulled to one side, and removed from the body via the natural excretion process—none of the fat is absorbed.
A Medical Device, Not a Supplement
The majority of weight management products are classed as supplements. They are designed to produce positive changes such as faster metabolism and/or improved fat burning etc. Medical devices are different, like a placebo, they have no direct effect on the body or how it functions. In the case of Proactol XS the main ingredient exerts a powerful influence over any fat that follows it into the stomach. It attracts it, binds it, and transports it out of the body. It does all of this without any assistance from the body and without the need to interfere with the body’s normal manner of function.
What are Fat Binders?
Fat binders are substances that are capable of absorbing large quantities of fat. They are also impossible to digest. These two combined properties make fat binders very useful weight management tools because once the fat has been absorbed by the fat binder it cannot be digested either and passes through the body without releasing any calories that could contribute to weight gain.
How to Take Proactol XS
Proactol XS should be taken three times a day, preferably before the three largest meals of the day. The recommended dosage is two (500mg) capsules, which should be taken with a large glass of water. Once consumed the capsules dissolve in the stomach and mix with the water to become a gelatinous compound that coats the stomach and binds the fat contained in the consumed food.
The Fat Binding Process in Action
The fat binding process offers several weight management benefits.
The fat cannot be digested so it does not release any calories that could instigate the growth of fresh fat cells. This means that the body must get most of its calories from simple sugars and carbohydrates and if the supply of calories is insufficient the body will then start to burn existing body fat to make up for the deficit of calories.
Proactol XS can also help to suppress the appetite because the fat binding compound (and the fat it has bound) will remain in the stomach for some time after eating and the presence of such a bulky mass can create feeling of fullness in the stomach and dull the appetite.
Due the fact that cholesterol is also a form of fat Proactol XS can also be useful for lowering cholesterol levels
All of the above benefits are provided courtesy of an ingredient called chitosan. It’s a popular fat binder that is used in a variety of different supplements, but the quality can vary because chitosan can be extracted from several different sources and some forms are better than others.
Most commercially available fat binders rely on chitosan that has been sourced from sea-living crustaceans such a shrimps, crabs and lobsters. Chitosan obtained from these sources has good fat binding abilities, but it is not by any means the most potent form available and is not suitable for vegetarians or people who are allergic to sea food (about 30% of the population).
The chitosan used in Proactol XS is produced from a species of fungus (aspergillus niger). It is a 100% safe, non-allergenic, and has also proven to be a superior fat binder. In fact, tests show that chitosan manufactured from aspergillus niger is 33% more effective than other fat binders and is capable of binding at least 800 times its own weight in fat in vitro.
