Description

Orlos for Weight Loss

Orlos is a medication to assist with weightloss. It works by preventing fat from being digested into the body from your meals. Orlos, like other weight loss medicines, is used/prescribed when changes to lifestyle and diet have not been enough to improve weight concerns.

Orlos needs to be used in conjunction with eating a balanced diet and partaking in regular exercise.

What is Orlos and how does it work?

Orlos is a medicine that contains the active ingredient orlistat which works to bind itself to the body's natural enzymes and break down some of the fats consumed in food. Orlos can stop about one-third of the fat from your meals from being absorbed into the body. Instead, this fat will be passed from the body through the stools.

Orlos is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women.

Orlos is only intended for use by adults aged 18 and over who are overweight with a body mass index (BMI) of 28 or above.

Is Orlos right for me?

If you suffer from obesity, Orlos may be an effective treatment. However, it may not be suitable for you if you have the following:

  • If you are allergic to orlistat or any other ingredients in this medicine
  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • If you are taking warfarin or other blood-thinning medications

Orlos: General Information

What is Orlos?

Orlos is an over-the-counter medication that is used to aid in weight loss. Orlos is designed to assist overweight adults in achieving their weight loss goals when used with a reduced-calorie, lower-fat diet, according to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).

How does Orlos work?

The primary function of Orlo is its ability to prevent the absorption of fats from the diet, thereby reducing overall calorie intake. Orlos inhibits gastric and pancreatic lipases, the enzymes that break down triglycerides in the intestine. When the enzyme is blocked, triglycerides from the diet are not hydrolysed into absorbable free fatty acids but are excreted undigested, explained by Dr Peter Kramer, a leading expert in dietary medicine.

How effective is Orlos?

Orlos is more effective alongside exercise and a healthy diet, with some users losing 10% or more weight in six months of use. The effectiveness of Orlos has been proven in numerous clinical trials, with one particular study finding that patients using Orlistat lost up to 5% of their body weight in the first 12 weeks, as published in the British Journal of Nutrition. The data underscores the potential of Orlos in aiding weight loss when combined with a healthy diet and exercise. It is important to note that the individual experience varies per person. 

Active ingredient in Orlos

The active ingredient in Orlos is Orlistat. Orlistat is a potent, specific, and long-acting inhibitor of gastrointestinal lipases. It exerts its therapeutic activity in the lumen of the stomach and small intestine by forming a covalent bond with the active serine residue site of gastric and pancreatic lipases.

Is Orlos the same as Orlistat?

Yes, Orl
