In a recent Dr Oz episode (How to Get Your Fat to Eat Itself – May 23rd 2014), Dr Mehmet Oz spoke about FBCx, a supplement that can apparently help burn 500 calories in just a single day.
“Every time you cheat on your diet, I want you to grab one of these itty-bitty pills.”
“This tiny tablet can push a lot of fat out of your body.”
Lets look at FBCx and Calorease (the real name of the supplement) in more detail to see how it works and whether it is recommended.
Benefits of Calorease
- Free from stimulants
- Bind and eliminate 9 times its weight in dietary fat
- Reduce your daily calorie intake by 500 calories
How does Calorease work?
Calorease can prevent the absorption of dietary fat after it has been consumed.
It can do this as it can bind with the fatty acids produced from the food we eat, which are then made resistant to digestion so are not absorbed by the body.
Instead this bound compound is instead passed through the digestive tract and removed from the body as waste.
Ingredients of Calorease
The main ingredient of Calorease is a naturally sourced dietary plant fibre known as FBCx.
Unlike many of the other dietary fibres available on the market this one can bind and eliminate up to 9 times its own weight in dietary fat, making it a much more effective option than most other fat binding supplements.
Side effects of Calorease
Calorease is made without the use of stimulants. It is derived from grain and is also a heart healthy fibre.
It is free of gluten, lactose, sugar, salt, egg, soy and artificial colours, sweeteners and preservatives.
Where to buy Calorease?
Although Calorease is available to buy on websites such as Amazon, it is a little expensive using this option as a pack of 180 tablets will cost $69.99.
In comparison the official website is currently listing the same number of tablets for just $49.99.
Is Calorease recommended?
Calorease certainly seems like a good option, the science behind it seems legitimate and you cannot discount the recommendation from Dr Oz.
You need to be quick if you want to buy this product though as with past recommendations sales of supplements or weight loss ingredients mentioned on the Dr Oz Show tend to sell out fast.
Alternative to Calorease
Another fat binder that you may want to check out is Proactol XS.
This fat binder has also been clinically proven, with results showing that its main ingredient could bind 800 times its own weight.
