Fat flushing supplement

Recently, Dr. Oz discussed ways to flush fat from your body in part by using a Litramine supplement that in his words will, "literally help you poop out unwanted fat fast." According to Dr. Oz, litramine is approximately a ½ pound-per-week weight loss supplement that works by preventing fat from being absorbed by the body that is then eliminated as waste from the GI tract. He told viewers that the study was published in the prestigious journal Obesity, of which a free online copy is available on a government health website.

A summary of the study titled “A Natural Fiber Complex Reduces Body Weight in the Overweight and Obese: A Double-Blind, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Study” is presented below:

Litramine is a natural fiber complex that is made primarily with fiber from a plant species called “Opuntia ficus-indica” and a secondary soluble fiber from a different plant species called “Acacia.”

The study was comprised of 123 subjects consisting of 30 male and 93 female subjects all of whom were clinically categorized as being either overweight or obese. All of the subjects were selected from a larger pool of applicants who were tested earlier to ensure selection of only those with a high likelihood of being compliant with the testing conditions throughout the 12-week study.

The subjects were randomly selected to receive either a Litramine supplement or a placebo daily in a double-blind clinical investigation that lasted 12 weeks. Measures made throughout the testing of the supplement over the placebo included changes in body weight from baseline as well as additional obesity markers.

During the 12-week treatment period, the weight loss supplement group received two tablets (1 gram) of Litramine 3 times a day following breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The control group received an identical-appearing placebo as well following each meal.

All test subjects were instructed to eat a nutritionally balanced and mildly hypocaloric diet consisting of 30% of energy from fat, 55% of energy from carbohydrate, and 15% of energy from protein throughout the 12-week study.

In addition, the test subjects were advised to gradually increase their physical activity with 30 minutes of moderate intensity physical exercise such as walking or cycling.

At the end of the study, final endpoint measurements were made and the double-blind data analyzed to reveal any differences in results between the two test groups. What the researchers found was that there was statistical significance in whether a Litramine supplement or a placebo was consumed daily. The results are as follows:

1. The Litramine group lost on average nearly 5% of their initial body weight whereas the placebo group lost on average nearly 2% of their initial body weight.

2. The Litramine group BMI measure decreased significantly more ( 1.3 kg/m2 ) in comparison to the placebo group 0.5 kg/m2 ).

3. The Litramine group lost a little over 7/10 of an inch waist size more than the placebo group.

4. The Litramine group lost approximately 3 pounds more body fat mass than the placebo group.

5. The safety and tolerability between taking Litramine supplement or the placebo were approximately equal.

The conclusions reached by the scientists in the study were that a dietary regimen of 3 grams of Litramine a day in conjunction with a mildly hypocaloric diet plus moderate physical activity may result in similar results under real-life conditions outside of the laboratory. They concluded that that ingestion of the natural fiber complex Litramine is an effective non-pharmacological intervention to induce weight loss without any adverse side effects.
