General Information About Xenical

Xenical is a highly effective gastrointestinal lipase inhibitor drug that is prescribed for obesity management. It acts by inhibits dietary fats from being absorbed by the gastrointestinal tract.

Active Ingredient

Orlistat is a drug that is intended to treat obesity. It acts as a lipase inhibitor; preventing fats from the human diet from being absorbed and thus reduces caloric intake. Lipstatin is a potent natural inhibitor which inhibits pancreatic lipases and is an agent that is isolated from a bacterium known as Streptomyces toxytricini. Orlistat is then the saturated derivative of the lipstatin agent. Orlistat was preferred over lipstatin for development as an anti-obesity drug because it is much more simplistic and stable.

What does Xenical treat?

Orlistat is used to treat obesity as a pharmaceutical aid to a holistic weight loss regimen. The rate of type 2 diabetes in an obese population was decreased with orlistat over four years to 6.2% compared to a 9.0% rate with placebo. 

The long-term use of orlistat by obese patients further leads to a modest but notable reduction in blood pressure (mean reductions of 2.5 and 1.9 mmHg in systolic and diastolic blood pressure respectively).
