Xenical weight loss capsules contain some active substance, called Orlistat. Orlistat is a strong gastrointestinal lipase inhibitor. Xenical (Orlistat) capsules are used to fight against excess weight and obesity, combining with hypocaloric diet.
Xenical drug inhibits the activity of enteric, pancreatic and gastric lipases, by blocking the splitting of triglycerides in the bowel. Therefore, Xenical diet pills reduce the intensity absorption of monoglycerides and free fatty acids in the gastrointestinal tract.
Xenical is different from other anorexigenic drugs (Phentermine, Sibutramine) by that it does not affect functions in the central nervous system, and thus never suppresses the appetite.
Clinical pharmacology of Xenical capsules
he unique feature of Xenical is that it provides a significant decrease of body mass and maintains normal weight of a patient without negative effect on psychophysical functions of the body.
Usage of Xenical capsules helps to reduce the body weight, as well as to exclude the probability of concomitant diseases, such as:
- diabetes type II
- impaired glucose tolerance
Pharmacological action of Xenical takes place in lumen of the stomach and small intestines.

Under the influence of the active substance Orlistat, inactivated enzymes are not able to split fats, incoming with food in form of triglycerides, monoglycerides and fatty acids. Only a small part of non-split fats is absorbed in the human body. Thus, fats that come in the body with foods are excreted out of the body unchanged.
