Orlistat is a popular medication for weight loss support. Back then, it was only Xenical, but at the end of Xenical’s patent in 2009, trade names including Olisat (Biocon), Obitrol (Micro Carsyon), Orstat (Windlas) etc have been available in the market. In the Philippines, Lesofat is recognized as a cheap alternative for Xenical.
As an orlistat, Lesofat is a Gastro intestinal lipase inhibitor. It works by blocking the fats consumed by an individual. About one third of fat is prevented from being absorbed by the body and is flushed down via large intestines. Hence, with less consumption of fats means fewer calories and with this, is an ideal body weight.
