Alli meant for those who are eighteen years and older and who are overweight. Alli works best with a low calorie, low fat diet and adequate exercise.
How does it work?
Alli is ingredients break up the fat you ingest. Only part of it is absorbed, the other is secreted out of the body naturally. When less fat is absorbed by the body, fewer calories absorbed well. Enzymes found in the digestive tract called lipase are the components that breaks down fat in smaller pieces. Some of these pieces are stored for energy or used. Alli again disables Lipase.
How is it used?
Alli is taken not more than three times per day. It is recommended that you eat something more the fifteen grams of fat per meal, and Alli is taken with these fat containing meals. If a person consumes a higher amount of fat, they will likely experience “treatment effects.”
