Carrying a researched backed ingredient profile, Proactol claims to help you lose weight through inhibiting fat intake and dramatically decreasing your appetite. Interestingly enough, many respectable studies actually support these claims. Read on to see why we recommend Proactol as a quality diet pill.
- Microcrystalline cellulose (153.50 mg)
- Calcium hydrogen phosphate dihydrate
- Silica (7 mg)
- Povidone (25.50 mg)
- Magnesium stearate (8 mg)
Opuntiaficus-indica – Proactol’s main ingredient is a patented fiber complex called NeOpuntia. Studies show that this ingredient decreases body fat intake by 28% (27.4% actually, but hey, what’s a few tenths of a percentage?). Another study showed NeOpuntia to lower about 23% of total fatty acids (http://www.neopuntia.com/neopuntia-efficiency-studies-tno-cern.php#clinical2006), while another touted improved levels of HDL cholesterol (the good kind) (http://www.neopuntia.com/neopuntia-efficiency-studies-tno-cern.php#clinical2006).
Proactol’s effectiveness is of a two-fold mission. First, Proactol attaches itself to certain fat cells while in the stomach. This is said to then create a fatfibre complex that is too large to be absorbed. The result: rather than being absorbed, the fat is “passed on” through the body. The second mission of Proactol is to slow down the absorption of glucose which, in the end, makes you feel as though you are full, decreasing your appetite.
Microcrystalline cellulose – Used as an excipient that aids in the biological availability of the other active ingredients. Result: the pill ingredients do their jobs better, faster, and more efficiently.
Surprisingly, there is actually a substantial amount of research backing Proactol’s claims and its ingredients. We really like to see these types of independent clinical studies which is one of the reasons why Proactol lands in our favorites category.
Proactol boasts a 180 day 100% money back guarantee which is something that you definitely don’t see everyday in the diet pill industry. In fact, any guarantee over 2 months is definitely notable. There is, however, the one caveat that you have to use the pill for a full 120 days before the guarantee kicks in. While this seems like a little too much to ask, we do like that they offer the 100% guarantee on all bottles (used and unused). Most other guarantees we’ve seen will refund you only for the unopened bottles.
The marketing on their website seems a bit hyped up to me, but maybe that’s just my taste. There are testimonials all over, couples on the beach, and the ever present before and after shots. We don’t have any reason to doubt any of these, so they may be legit stories, etc. I’m just not much of a fan of the flashy advertising. In the end, however, its the ingredients in the pill that make the difference.
$89.95 buys you a one month supply of Proactol. Initially that seems like a hard amount to swallow (yes, pun intended), but if Proactol delivers on what they and the researchers claim then it’s probably worth the price tag. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, you’re better off to buy a better, higher priced pill than to spend half the amount on what is essentially a placebo (like the vast majority of diet pills on the market as well as reviewed on this site).
We give Proactol the green light and recommend them as one of the best diet pills out there. The main reason for the recommendation is the high amount research that is backing the ingredients. We commend Proactol for not following the rest of the industry by using fad ingredients that have zero research supporting them (Hoodia comes to mind). While their price is higher (mostly because of the patented ingredient NeOpuntia), they do offer a great warranty. For those looking for an effective diet pill, with a proven ingredient profile, we say Proactol may be the one for you.
