What is alli and what it is used for:
alli is used for weight loss alongside reduced calorie, lower-fat meals in overweight adults (with a BMI of 28 or above), aged 18 or over.
alli is clinically proven to help you lose more weight than dieting alone. The capsule works only in your digestive system to stop about a quarter of the fat in your meals being absorbed. This fat passes out of your body and may cause changes to your bowel movements. Eat lower-fat meals to help manage these effects.
Being overweight increases your risk of developing several serious health problems such as diabetes and heart disease. You should see your doctor for a check-up.
Suitable for adults aged 18 years and over with a BMI of 28 or above who will commit to a reduced calorie, lower-fat diet.
You must be at least 18 years old to purchase this product.
