What Is Xenical?

Xenical contains the active ingredient Orlistat which helps to treat obesity. It blocks some of the fat you eat, preventing it from being absorbed by your body.

Used as part of a reduced-calorie diet it can help you lose 50% more weight than dieting alone.

Just like sports brands, medicines are also available as a non-brand (generic) form. The low cost alternative to Xenical is the generic version called Orlistat. They are medically equivalent as they contain the same active ingredient.

Fat absorbtion without Orlistat

Fat is too large to be absorbed by our body

It is broken down by enzymes into smaller parts that our body can absorb

The smaller molecules are easily absorbed in our body

Orlistat blocks up-to 50% fat absorbtion

When you take Orlistat with a well-balanced diet

Orlistat blocks some of the enzymes from breaking down the fat

Larger fat molecules cannot be absorbed by the body and is excreted
