The science behind XL-S Medical

XL-S Medical helps you lose up to 3x more weight than with dieting alone*. It is primarily made from Litramine™, a patented natural fibre complex containing prickly pear.

How does XL-S Medical work?

THE TRIPLE ACTION EFFECT

  1. Reduces calories absorbed by binding dietary fat
    The fibre complex Litramine™ binds readily with fat from food and becomes a large fat-fibre complex in the stomach. The fat-fibre complex is too large to be absorbed in the small intestine. It is eventually excreted from the body naturally.
  2. Can reduce appetite and food cravings
    The fibres in Litramine™ also expand and become a highly viscous gel that delays gastric emptying, which can help to reduce appetite and food cravings.
  3. Can improve gastrointestinal transit
    The fibres contained in XL-S Medical can play an important role to improve gastrointestinal transit.

How to take XL-S Medical

XL-S Medical comes in a convenient, small, discrete single-dose oral powder sachet. It means you can take it anywhere and without the need for water. Simply pour the sweet berry flavoured powder directly into your mouth after each main meal.

  1. Take 1 sachet, 3 times a day, immediately after every main meal. Do not take more than 3 sachets per day.whytotake
  2. The sachets are ready-to-use. Empty the contents directly into your mouth or on your tongue and consume.
  3. Do not pour the contents of the sachet into a drink before consuming. If preferred, you can drink water directly after placing the contents of the sachet on your tongue.
  4. For best results XL-S Medical should be taken for at least 1 month or until you reach your desired weight.
  5. It is important to combine XL-S Medical with a healthy eating plan and regular physical activity.

XL-S Medical complements your healthy diet and active lifestyle plan and helps you lose up to 3 times more weight than dieting alone. Results may vary between individuals.

XLS is made from Litramine™, a patented natural fibre complex sourced from prickly pear. Litramine™ has been published in the highly esteemed medical journal, “The Journal of Obesity1”. The results showed that Litramine™ helped lose up to 3x more weight than dieting alone.

The study was performed over 12 weeks with 123 volunteers, who were classified by weight into two groups. Each volunteer agreed to complete the study in the comfort of their home. The volunteers were given a diet plan reducing their daily caloric intake by 500 calories per day and included at least 30% fat content. The volunteers were split into two study groups, where one group received a daily 3g dose of Litramine™ (the active ingredient of XL-S Medical), and the other group received a placebo. The volunteers did not know which study group they were in.

After 12 weeks the results clearly showed the group taking Litramine™ with diet on average lost 3x more weight than the dieters in the placebo group, who relied solely on reduced calorie intake. It is this difference between the two groups, which demonstrates how Litramine, the active ingredient found in XL-S Medical, can help you lose up to 3x more weight than dieting alone.

It is recommended to take the sachet immediately after a main meal. XL-S Medical powder binds immediately to fats in the food you have eaten. It starts working in the upper part of the stomach. If you take XL-S Medical a considerable time after you have eaten it may not work as effectively as your stomach may have already emptied. The time for this to happen is different between people.

XL-S Medical works by absorbing dietary fats and reduces appetite and food cravings. The fibres in XL-S Medical also expand and become a highly viscous gel making you feel fuller for longer. Taking XL-S Medical even if you skip a meal may help you prevent snacking in between meals. It works best if you take it 3 times a day, one sachet after each main meal.

Some people like to eat small meals regularly and others prefer to eat 2-3 main meals. Please eat your meals when and how it suits you and your lifestyle. It is not important how often you eat but rather the total number of calories you consume daily. For best results XL-S Medical should be taken 3 times a day in the morning, in the middle of the day and in the evening after food. If you are taking medication ensure that you take XL-S Medical 2 hours before or after your medication. Adjust when you take XL-S Medical to fit around your medication requirements.

No. Do not take XL-S Medical more than 3 times a day. Space the doses out across the day. XL-S Medical has been clinically tested and shown to be effective and well tolerated at this dose.

XL-S Medical results, showing up to 3 times more weight loss than dieting alone, are based on taking this product 3 times a day spaced across the day to coincide with meals. If you take less than the recommended dose you may not experience the same results as those found in the clinical trial.

XL-S Medical comes in a convenient, small and discrete single dose oral powder sachet. It means you can take it anywhere and without the need for water. Simply pour the sweet berry flavoured powder directly into your mouth after each main meal.

If preferred, you can drink a glass of water after placing XL-S Medical on your tongue. Alternatively, you can prepare your mouth with additional saliva before placing it on your tongue. Do not mix XL-S Medical in a glass of water first.

Taking XL-S Medical is an additional step in your weight loss journey. It is best used as one part of an overall weight management plan. Effective weight management requires long-term commitment, a healthy well-balanced diet and regular physical activity.

Losing weight and keeping it off requires commitment to a change in lifestyle. It is important to set realistic, achievable weight-loss goals. Everyone loses weight at different rates and depends on the number of calories they eat and the amount of energy they expend each day. It will also depend on how much weight you need to lose.

Steady, consistent weight loss is healthier and more sustainable than rapid weight loss from fad diets. Australian healthcare professional guidelines show that over the long term, it is best to aim for 0.5-1 kg per week. You will need to burn or consume 500-1000 fewer calories per week to achieve this weight loss trend. There may be some weeks where you do not see a change in your overall weight. You may have lost size rather than weight that week. You may like to combine weighing yourself each week together with waist circumference measurements to assess your overall weight loss.

XL-S Medical reduces the number of calories absorbed from the fat in your diet and can reduce your appetite and food cravings.

Wise food choices can help you eat fewer calories and regular physical activity helps you burn off some of the calories you consume. Together these will assist you achieve you weight loss goals more quickly.

This is extremely dependent on the amount of weight that you need to lose. The clinical trial showing that you can lose up to 3 times more weight that dieting alone was conducted over 12 weeks. Consumers in Europe have taken XL-S Medical long-term and clinical data has shown it is well-tolerated.

There is no data to suggest that alcohol cannot be consumed with XL-S Medical. However, we would encourage that your alcohol intake is in accordance with a balanced diet and within the recommended guidelines for alcohol consumption. Alcohol is a calorie rich beverage. Limiting your alcohol intake can reduce the number of calories you are consuming, helping you reach your daily calorie target. Perhaps include alcohol on your list of occasional special treats.

It is important not to weigh yourself too often as you will not have an accurate account of the amount of weight you have lost. Your weight varies across the day and will vary from day to day depending on what you have eaten, how much exercise you have done and how dehydrated you may be. You will get a better idea of how much weight you have lost if you weigh yourself once per week or fortnight on the same day at roughly the same time of day (e.g. Thursday morning before breakfast). Take your shoes off and wear similar style clothing each time. Often people choose a ‘weigh in’ day outside of the weekend as this is when they generally break their healthy eating routine and you may momentarily weigh more at this time.

Measuring body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference help to identify people who may benefit from weight loss programmes2.

Measuring your waist circumference is a simple indication of how much body fat you have and where it is stored around your body. Regardless of an adult’s height or build, a higher than normal waist measurement is:

  • greater than 94cm for men
  • greater than 80cm for women

The waist measurements are a guide for Caucasian men, and Caucasian and Asian women. Recommended waist measurements are yet to be determined for all ethnic groups. It is believed that they may be lower for Asian men.

Waist circumference measurements are also another way of measuring the success of your weight loss programme. Some weeks you may not lose weight as measured on the scales but you may lose centimetres from around your waist. These measurements can help you to stay motivated with your weight loss programme.

To measure your waist circumference:

  1. Find the top of your hip bones and the bottom of your ribs.
  2. Breathe out normally.
  3. Place the tape measure midway between these points and wrap it around your waist (usually around your navel/belly button).
  4. Check your measurement ensuring that you can fit one finger between the tape measure and the body. This ensures you are not pulling the tape too tight.

5. Record the measurement taken on an exhalation (breathing out)
