Did you know?

Alli is the only pharmacy only weight loss pill licensed throughout Europe.

Taking Alli at each meal, in conjuction with a reduced calorie, lower fat diet, can enable you to lose 50% more weight than you would otherwise.

Alli works by attaching itself to some of the fat in your diet, so it passes through your body undigested.

Alli information resource

Alli tabletWelcome to the Alli information web site. If you are struggling to lose weight, then you may have heard about Alli, an over the counter slimming pill manufactured by the pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKlein. Alli is a weight loss pill containing orlistat. Orlistat is also the active ingredient in the prescription slimming drug Xenical, but Alli contains half the amount of orlistat that Xenical contains.

Alli can be sold without prescription to overweight adults who have a Body Mass Index, or BMI, greater than 28. It should be taken in conjunction with a reduced calorie, lower fat diet.

This site has been designed to inform you about Alli, and help you decide whether it is right for you. You can also buy Alli online directly from a number of UK registered pharmacies, so that you can be sure you are buying genuine Alli (see below).

Alli works locally on your digestive system and should not affect your central nervous system or heart rate.

Alli went on sale over the counter in the US in 2007 and first went on sale in the UK in April 2009.

Although Alli is intended as a supplement to a healthy lower fat diet and exercise plan, it is claimed that taking an Alli tablet with every meal can help the dieter to lose 50% more weight than they would otherwise lose, leading to a loss of body weight of between 5% and 10% over a four month period.

The Alli capsule is dark blue and the recommended dose is a 60mg tablet which should be taken immediately before, during or up to one hour after each main meal, but no more than three per day.

You should take a multivitamin each day at bedtime that contains the vitamins A, D, E and K to ensure you absorb enough of these fat soluble vitamins.
