Developed by InQpharm®, Litramine® is a natural fiber complex shown to reduce body weight in overweight and obese patients. In multiple double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled studies, it has been proven effective for weight loss and maintenance. Clinical studies on adults 35 and older show taking one gram of Litramine® three times daily for twelve weeks supports weight loss by binding a portion of dietary fat. Results have also shown patients using Litramine® experience three times more weight loss than with dieting and exercise alone with subjects maintaining their body weight for 24 weeks after initial weight loss. In a very recent 52-week study, Litramine® was shown to help subjects lose 6.5 kg on average.
Use of Flaxseed mucilage IQP-LU-104 is also proven to result in three times more weight loss than with dieting and exercise alone in twelve weeks, with a significant weight reduction observed as early as four weeks.
