Proactol is a fat binder suppliment that helps in losing weight by
absorbing the fat from your intake. Or at least, this is what the
official website claims to do. In order to find out whether this is a
valid claim, a clinical test was carried out to determine whether
Proactol has any effect. This Proactol review will present the result of
the clinical test.
The experimental review
The clinical study was aimed at observing whether the complex form of Opuntia ficus indica, which is the most active ingredient of Proactol, has any effect on fat binding. It was done by ten healthy volunteers (5 men and 5 women), and the participants were randomly divided into two groups, one receiving Proactol ingredients and the other group receiving placebo. The first group took 1.6g of Proactol every meal for one week. The second group took the placebo, which looked exactly like the Proactol capsule except that the ingredients were missing, during the same time. The participants did not know whether their capsule was Proactol or the placebo. During the test period, all the volunteers had strict diet with standardized meals, to insure that the amount of fat intake was constant. This was done in order to measure the results. The effect of Proactol dose was analyzed by measuring steatorrhea in the faeces of the volunteers after two-7day product consumption period.
What is the result of the test?
The quantity of fat excreted by the group that took Proactol was found to be 27.4% higher than the group that took placebo. In addition, no side-effects or discomfort was reported by the volunteers. The results indicate that that the ingredient of Proactol Opuntia ficus indica decreases the assimilation of fat (absorption of fat from the intestine to the blood) following a heavy meal, and consequently the amount of fat excreted increases.
Apart from the clinical tests, Proactol was also reviewed by some other consumers. One consumer, Megan Jones, who is receptionist by profession, decided to give Proactol a try after being unsatisfied by a variety of other diet pills. She reported back that she lost 9lbs in 4 weeks and she was very glad about it. This and many other consumers review confirms that Proactol is very good at reducing the amount of fat absorbed into the blood.
What does this mean to you?
Proactol will help you lose weight, but this is not like weight loss programs or diets. This does not require you to reduce or control your food intake. This means you can indulge in whatever delicious delights you desire without fear of gaining weight as Proactol is there to remove the harmful substance from your food. As a result your body gets only the useful substances from the food and the rest goes to the toilet. :)
