XLS-Medical Fat Binder is a non-prescription weight management product from XLS-Medical. It has been designed for the treatment of excess weight and claims to help you lose up to three times more weight compared to dieting alone. It supposedly accomplishes this by reducing appetite and decreasing the number of calories from dietary fats. It also claims “clinically proven efficacy,” binding “up to 27% of dietary fats”.

The active ingredient in XLS-Medical Fat Binder is Litramine IQP G-002AS. This is a proprietary blend of Opuntia ficus-indica (Prickly Pear Cactus) and Acacia. Each capsule contains 500mg of Litramine, but the precise amounts of prickly pear and acacia used is not revealed.

Litramine is a natural fiber complex and forms a complex in the stomach that is too large for the body to absorb. It is then naturally eliminated from the body as waste; a process that is supposedly gentle on the system.

The suggested dosage is to take 2 tablets, 3 times per day with liquid, immediately following a meal. Even if you skip a meal you are to take 2 tablets, but you should not take more than 6 tablets in one day. It is also recommended that when taking this product you should consume a minimum of 2 liters of liquid daily.

XLS-Medical Fat Binder Pros

Litramine has been clinically studied and research has revealed promising results, showing that it can absorb up to 27% of dietary fat while also being gentle on the system. The primary clinical study conducted by XLS- Medical took place in 2010 and involved 123 volunteers who were overweight or obese. The volunteers followed a diet plan that was 500 calories less than their daily calorie needs and their diets also included a minimum of 30% fat content. The study participants were split up into two groups: one group was given a placebo, the other was given a daily 3 gram dose of Litramine. Both groups took 2 tablets, 3 times daily with liquid after meals for 12 weeks.

XLS-Medical Fat Binder Cons

Although this product has been studied, you should know that, further study (beyond what has been conducted by the manufacturer) is required to determine the true effects of this product and how safe it is for long-term weight loss. What’s more, simply because there has been promising research, this does not mean that Litramine is clinically proven to work.

Moreover, while it can help your body absorb less calories from the food you eat, this doesn’t mean that fat loss will result, nor does it solve the issues of low energy or slow metabolic rates.

While many people may use XLS-Medical Fat Binder without experiencing unpleasant side effects, this dietary supplement is not without the risk of adverse effects. The most common associated with (and complained about) for this product include: diarrhea, nausea, bloating, headache and increased bowel movements and increased amount of stool.

Do speak to your doctor prior to taking XLS-Medical Fat Binder to make sure it is the right choice for you.
