Lobese: Weight-loss Food Supplement Review

Lobese seems to be promising for weight reduction. It contains the all-natural phaseolus vulgaris which is a starch-blocker. Not only Lobese is said to be cheaper than any other brand counterpart, its effect can be seen within three days only. This can be good news for dieters. However, can Lobese be suitable for most people?

Carbohydrate-blockers work differently in comparison to orlistat or malunggay supplements. While the former is a fat-blocker, the latter is an appetite suppressant. A carbohydrate-blocker like Lobese prevents the action of the alpha-amylase - a digestive enzyme which converts starch into glucose. Glucose has been known to be converted to energy but it can also be stored in the body tissues as fats or lipids. Too much fat in the system can lead to weight-gain and added to this, possible high triglycerides level. With a carbohydrate-blocker like Lobese, accumulation of fats or lipid in the body can be lessened and weight can be reduced. However, can Lobese be recommendable for most people?

Lobese facts

Lobese, a product of Zifam is available in 500mg white capsule dosage form. It is usually purchased in bottles of 60 capsules. Lobese is phaseolus vulgaris also known as white kidney bean extract which is a natural starch blocker. Not only it can reduce weight, Lobese is also cited to relieve constipation since it is also a form of bulk-forming laxative.

As  phaseolus vulgaris, Lobese should be taken on an empty stomach or it can be consumed 15 to 20 minutes before meals. One to two tablets a day is advised with a full glass or adequate intake of water to prevent choking.

While Lobese has no clinical trials for pregnant women, it can be used for children but with a doctor's advice. Its common side effects are flatulence and diarrhea.

Lobese as an amylase inhibitor may lower blood-sugar. Interaction with antidiabetic drugs like glimepiride, gliclazide, pioglitazone, metformin, glibenclamide and other hypoglycemic medications can be possible.

Lobese food supplement has been revealed by its own manufacturer to be very effective that one can lose 7 pounds in one month. On the contrary, starch-blockers are not a long term remedy for reducing weight. Lobese can be similar with other pills or supplements that once its intake is stopped, its effect is also diminished. In 2010, experts do not usually recommend a starch-blocker since these have not enough clinical trials. Fortunately, in recent studies higher concentrations of carbohydrate-blockers do work. Balanced eating habits and exercise can also help in this diet regimen.

However, a doctor’s recommendation is essential if the individual has diabetes since Lobese can interact with glucose-lowering medications. More to this, depression can also occur to susceptible people. Not only that energy is lessened with a decreased intake of starch or carbohydrate within the body, serotonin (also known as the feel-good hormone) is also depleted.
