Proactol is essentially a fat binder and appetite suppressant which claims to bind 28% of fat from the food you eat and leave you feeling fuller for longer.
Its main ingredient is derived from a catcus plant called Optunia Ficus-indica (aka prickly pear extract), which contains two types of fibres. The part below explains how they each work.
The Science Inside Proactol
Proactol's formula consists of two fibres, one soluble - to make you feel full, and one non soluble - to bind the fat from your food making it indigestible. Here's how they both work
Non soluble fibres
As soon as the non-soluble fibres in Proactol come in to contact with the dietary fats in your food, they bind with them immediately forming a liquid gel. This makes a fat-fibre complex which is too large for your body to absorb, lowering the fat content of any meal by up to 28%.
The soluble fibres in Proactol form a sticky solution in your stomach, which binds bile acids and slows down the absorption of glucose. This solution takes a lot longer to digest compared to a normal meal, making you feel fuller for longer and preventing any cravings.
