Xenical is different from other diet pills helping obese people in losing excessive weight. It is an FDA approved prescription drug that prevents fat from being digested and absorbed into the body. It does not suppress the appetite like most of the diet pills do.
Each capsule of Xenical capsule contains 120 mg of the active substance known as orlistat which acts as a lipase inhibitor. Compiling of fat is seen to be the main reason that leads to weight gain and this is what Xenical prevents, thereby stopping and reducing the fat in the body.
Not only dietary fats, Xenical diet pills even decrease the absorption of some fat-soluble vitamins. And to compensate, you should take a multi-vitamin containing vitamins such as A, E, D, and K once in a day, at least two hours before or after taking Xenical diet pill. Make sure to take a well balanced diet rich in fruit and vegetables.
