XLS Medical Fat Binder

Eating too much fat in your diet? XLS Medical Fat Binder claims to be the answer to reducing calories from fat by blocking up to 27% of your dietary fat intake.

What You Need To Know About XLS Medical Fat Binder

XLS Medical is a supplement that contains no stimulants and just 100% natural ingredients that should cause no side effects. That said a number of consumers have not only reported side effects but weight loss was minimal, if at all.

Although weight loss should be possible by taking XLS Medical it should be used with the “123 Hello Me” weight loss programme for best results. It’s worth bearing in mind that fat binders are NOT fast acting and weight loss will take time for them to work.

What Are The Side Effects Of XLS Medical Fat Binder?

There seems to be no negative side effects with XLS Medical fat binders, although the manufacturer reports no side effects a number of consumers have reported loose stools or, in contrast, feeling constipated.

How Much Does XLS Medical Fat Binder Cost?

You can buy XLS Medical fat binder from £24.99 for 60 capsules, but this is enough for only 10 days supply. 1 month’s supply of XLS Medical contains 180 capsules and costs £59.99 available from Boots Online and in store.

Our Verdict On XLS Medical Fat Binder

XLS Medical has no money-back guarantee directly from the manufacturers, but it is available by reliable and trusted retailers both online and on the UK High Street.

It was somewhat a tough decision but in the end we decided to reject XLS Medical Fat Binder. The ingredient amounts have been clinically proven to work, albeit very slowly, and it’s available from a trusted retailer, but consumer feedback we have received has been very mixed with reports of possible side effects.

XLS Medical Fat Binder Review

We started off by picking up a box of XLS Medical fat binder from our local Boots store, as its available exclusively in Boots. It’s a popular brand and it seems to have replaced the popular Alli in High Street Boots stores; even the staff seemed to recommend this brand.

The price we felt was a little steep at £64.99 (price is now £59.99) although you can collect Boots points if you have a Boots store card!

XLS Medical Fat Binder Facts

  • Recommended to be used with “123 Hello me” 12-week weight loss programme
  • Successfully used and endorsed by legendary vocalist Mica Paris
  • Suitable for anyone who eats high fat content meals

The packaging is more medical looking than many of the more commercial looking fat binders on the market. Although it’s not clear from the advertising in-store, XLS Medical should be used as part of the “123 Hello Me” 12-week weight loss programme.

How to Take XLS Medical Fat Binder

Take 2 tablets with water after breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you have a very high fat content meal you can take 3 tablets. Never exceed more than 6 tablets per day.

Mica Paris endorses XLS MedicalThe 3 step programme is designed to ensure you eat sensibly, keep active and regularly take XLS-Medical. The official “123 Hello Me” website features legendary singer Mica Paris’s story of how she successfully used XLS Medical to lose 2 stones and drop 2 dress sizes, all in just 3 1/2 months.


XLS Medical Fat Binder Concerns:

  • Concerns over how much can really be lost with fat binders
  • No money-back guarantee offered
  • Some consumers have reported side effects

As with many fat binders you can end up taking a LOT of tablets each day, XLS Medical is no different in that you take 1-3 tablets with liquid, immediately after each main meal. There are questions as to how effective fat binders can really be though and we look to address these concerns too!

What Does XLS Medical Fat Binder Claim To Do?

XLS Medical claims to be a certified Medical Device product that contains a clinically proven ingredient and essential vitamins that can help you lose 3 times more weight than dieting alone!

XLS-Medical works by binding fats you eat and helps you feel fuller for longer

The supplement is “gentle on your system” and “starts working in just 3 days and you’ll notice a difference in 4 week”.

Does XLS Medical Fat Binder Work?

The main ingredient Litramine has been extensively studied by the owners InQpharm. Two clinical studies, one in 2003 and more recently in 2007, are referenced by XLS Medical to show that Litramine reduces fat absorption by around 27%.

The results of the studies concluded that Litramine reduces dietary fat absorption through gastrointestinal fat binding and could lead to weight loss.

A study published in Advances in Therapy in 2007 has shown how the NeOpuntia (Litramine) ingredient in XLS Medical could also reduce bad cholesterol by 10% in 14 days and reduce metabolic syndrome by 39% within 42 days. More information about the nature of the clinical trial and the amount of NeOpuntia used is needed before this finding can be confirmed though!

An issue found with some fat binders is the removal of additional fat can reduce the amount of fat soluble vitamins. XLS Medical combats this by providing additional fat soluble A, D and E vitamins.

It would seem that clinical data is supportive of the weight loss claims made by XLS Medical and it could be possible to lose weight.

What Are The Ingredients of XLS Medical Fat Binder?

The official website (even the box itself!) contains little information on the ingredients used in this supplement.

So let’s take a look at in the ingredients:

  • Litramine: Patented natural fibre complex derived mainly from Opuntia ficus-indica and has the ability to bind fats. Studies have shown Litramine to reduce fat absorption by up to 27% with no undesirable side effects. It has been shown to be safe, certified organic and does not contain any known allergens. It is manufactured and distributed by InQpharm. (Source: http://www.litramine.com/)
  • Vitamin A- acetate: Fat soluble vitamin essential for eye health and has been suggested to increase longevity, but little evidence backs up these claims.
  • Vitamin D3: Fat soluble vitamin that is essential for health. Can be synthesised by exposure to sunlight, supplementation can be useful during periods of inadequate sunlight exposure, useful if you’re living in the UK!
  • Vitamin E-acetate: Fat soluble vitamin with many functions, most well known for its antioxidant properties.

Does XLS Medical Fat Binder Have Any Side Effects?

There seems to be no negative side effects with XLS Medical fat binders, although the manufacturer reports no side effects a number of consumers have reported loose stools or, in contrast, feeling constipated.

You are advised against taking XLS Medical if you are pregnant or breastfeeding or have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of less than 18.5.

Are There Any Customer Reviews For XLS Medical Fat Binder?

There are no consumer reviews on the official website or on the Boots website. There are some positive reports on Mumsnet that XLS Medical has worked. The feedback we have received from consumers though as been very mixed.

After extensive researching online we found no reports of XLS Medical scams or rip-offs.

Does XLS Medical Fat Binder Offer a Money-Back Guarantee?

There is no money-back guarantee from the manufacturer.

  1. Rosie Harding says:

    Needed to boost weight loss to encourage me to continue. Only need to lose a few pounds to make me feel happier in myself. I am not obese and within the parameters for my height and age etc. Bought XLS medical as sounded like the product to do what I needed. After week 1 weighed myself and actually weighed heavier. Put it down to different clothes ( weighed myself on same scales in Boots ) so weighed today and yet again more weight again. Will stick to losing weight the old fashioned way. Basically does not work for me.

  6. Lisa A says:

    My husband and I have been on this for two weeks and although bloating has gone down for me and its helped me from having a mummys bladder incident when I cough or sneeze, its really not worth it.
    Cons, Both my husband and I got headaches at first, the taste is really foul(berry flavour) and I usually am sweet tooth person, my husband and I were very gassy. Don’t buy it, we are goin to try “fireblast” recommended by friends who we saw lost lots of weight and its only a pill a day.

  7. karen says:

    I have taken xl now for a few weeks to be honest they are a total waste of money. you may as well join slimming world and eat sensibley it will cost you less in the long run and save you money.

  8. Cathy J says:

    I have been taking XLS Medical Max Strength for 23 days now but I am going to stop today.
    I have experienced uncomfortable tummy pain, feeling sick, excess flatulence and constant horrible diarrhoea. I will find another way of helping my weight loss as this was definitely not worth the money. Negligible weight loss but that is because I am eating carefully.

    1. C Telford says:

      … and at the other extreme, if you are remotely prone to constipation, avoid it at all costs. I had a truly awful experience with them a few years ago and can’t believe I was stupid enough to put myself through the whole ghastly ordeal again last week. First time i had only taken XLS pills for 3 or 4 days when I became so constipated I developed piles and an anal fissure for the first time in my life, aged mid 50s. I went many time without being able to pass a stool was so painful I nearly fainted. The piles were so big they had to be removed surgically under general anesthetic 2 years ago. I have been so careful with diet and hydration ever since and had no more such problems. Quite recently a friend insisted the formula had been changed, and so I cautiously tried it again after piling on too much weight lately. What a total idiot I am. Within 36 hours, more raging constipation which has taken many days to shift even with with copious sachets of Movicol. I have thrown the rest of the XLS away. I am pretty sure i have lost weight this week – only because I have felt so unwell through the constipation and bloating that I havent wanted to eat! Ban XLS Medical, in my opinion.

  10. Kate Taylor says:

  11. Kate says:
