Alli Slimming Drug Update

Alli Slimming Pills 2017

Alli Slimming PillsWith the sheer volume of promotion and column inches devoted to Alli, it should have been and would have been the best selling non prescription slimming pill of all time.

The FDA’s (Food and Drugs Administration) approval gave Alli a unique status.

FDA approval is something that is usually reserved for anti obesity medication that cannot be purchased without prior GP consultation and no other commercially available or over the counter slimming pill has (to date) been awarded this status.

GlaxoSmithKline manufacture Alli and from a marketing perspective Alli has should have been one of if not the best selling slimming pills of 2008.  From a consumer perspective Alli was a huge disappointment.


Alli was released around 18 months ago in the United States first and billed as  the $1 a day anti obesity drug that could help dieters to experience Rapid Weight Loss, Alli has been plagued with consumer reports and cause for concern over a side effect that is not so much dangerous but hugely embarrassing.

View the original Alli Review for more detail regarding the side effect that has kept consumers never too far from a bathroom or public convenience.

As as far as potential customers in the UK and Europe are concerned purchases up until now would have to be made from American online based websites such as HealthBuy. But recently, Alli has been awarded the seal of approval by Europe’s medicine watchdog and could be available in the UK and Europe as early as May 2009.

Alli Clinical Trials

Alli is a lower strength version of the prescription only anti obesity drug Orlistat, better name under the brand name of Xenical.

To date the clinical trials involving Alli have not been put under the microscope or replicated – The connection and association with Xenical and of course GlaxoSmithKline is an obvious help.

Dr Vidhu Bansal-Dev, of GlaxoSmithKline’s American weight loss and health and wellbeing advisor, said: “It (Alli) is the most extensively studied weight-loss drug on the planet and proven to be beneficial to those wanting to lose weight.”

But Gareth Williams, professor of medicine at Bristol University, doubts that the results gathered from the clinical studies on highly motivated individuals will be replicated among the general public who are not under controlled “workshop” conditions

He (Gareth Williams) wrote in the British Medical Journal: ‘Taking it (Alli) without medical supervision may achieve an average daily energy deficit of only 100 kcal – equivalent of leaving a few chips on a plate or eating an apple instead of ice cream.’

He also wrote that taking Alli was the equivalent of having “10 to 20 minutes of sex”.

Alli Slimming Pills Review

Alli Slimming PillsA new diet pill was announced at the beginning of the year- marketed as a lower grade or reduced strength version of prescription only weight loss pill Xenical (Orlistat). Alli hit the headlines in the diet journal and was eagerly anticipated. More about Xenical

At first glance Alli – or alli (lower case) seems to be what the diet pill marketplace was waiting for – a prescription only tablet available to freely purchase.

Alli is government and FDA approved – this puts it in a unique position.

What Is Alli

Alli is a fat blocking diet pill that will stop fat being absorbed by the body by around a 25%. The unabsorbed fat can then pass naturally through the bowel and exit via bowel movements. This is where Alli has become subject to many debate and horror stories.

Buy Alli In The UK

The makers of Alli have chosen to market and package their product using the same font style and colors to that of Ebay. I would imagine it would not be too long before we see the product being sold this way.

Alli Side Effects

The fact of the matter is unabsorbed fat has to exit the body eventually and this is where Alli does not seem so much like the perfect dieters solution or a slimmers dream.

Unabsorbed fat – or fat from foods in its natural state it not pleasing on the eye, nor is it pleasant to have it pass through your body.

A high proportion of dieters have complained of a foul orange liquid being expelled alarmingly frequent …and without warning. It is recommended for Alli users to carry a change of underwear (or many) where ever they venture – and to plan your journey around the location of public lavatories.

Should I Buy Alli

Alli cannot be given any kind of recommendation. The side effects are a real deal breaker. Why take an understrength version of Xenical – when all that is needed is to visit your doctor or GP to be (if you have a high BMI) prescribed the real thing.
