Buy Alli? – The New Diet Pill
The new “miracle” diet tablet, Alli is now available to buy in the UK.
Alli is the first “diet drug” to be made available without the need of a prescription. Alli is also the first FDA (Food and Drugs Administration) approved diet tablet that is freely available to purchase on the open market.
Alli is a lower strength version (60mg) of the prescription only Orlistat, better known by its brand name Xenical.
At first glance Alli has many positives and is sure to make its manufacturers GlaxoSmithKline huge profits.
It is when the layers are peeled back that Alli may not be the miracle diet tablet that the GlaxoSmithKline marketing machine would have us believe.

Alli In The United States
While Alli is the new diet tablet as far as the UK is concerned – US dieters across the Atlantic have been using Alli for a little under 2 years, with mixed results.
There is little doubt that the active ingredient Orlistat is a powerful drug and its fat blocking technology is pretty much unrivaled – but at what cost!
To date the most discussed side effect that Alli can cause is oily stools. Many US dieters have complained that the blocked fat has contributed to anal leakage, or to put it bluntly and rather crudely – an orange goo has a tendency to leak from the anal passage frequently and without warning.
This has been coined the Alli Oops and lead to many American christening Alli as the Poo Pill
The oily stool (alli opps) although embarrassing could be perceived as a minor irritant when compared to the potential benefit. The oily stool or anal leakage is solid (sic) evidence that the tablet is working and that fat from your food is indeed being blocked and not digested.
There is though another potential side effect that seems to have been conveniently ignored.
Serious Alli Side Effects
Prescription diet drugs all have one thing is common – they are chemically produced pharamaceutical substances – or put simply, drugs.
Chemically produced prescription drugs need approval from governmental bodies such as the FDA and MHRA to ensure they are safe for human consumption. This approval process can take time.
Although Orlistat (the active ingredient within Alli) has been approved by due process the feeling is that the product Alli has been rushed through without considering the long term implications.
The most worrying study was undertaken by Public Citizen, a non profit group. Their suggestion as a result of their independent studies concluded that Alli could cause pre-cancerous lesions in the colons of mice.
Dr. Sidney M. Wolfe, director of Public Citizen’s Health Research Group also suggested that while it is not known whether these pre-cancerous lesions will lead to colon cancer, he and other cancer experts do not believe use of the weight-loss drug is a risk worth taking as no long term studies on humans have been undertaken.
Alli is targeted towards people who have a high BMI (Body Mass Index) upwards of 28 – if you do have a high BMI you may be eligible for the full strength and more thoroughly studied Phentermine. More about Phentermine
The non prescription market has completely natural products that can rival Alli for effect but without both the minor and potentially fatal side effects. PhenQ is a multi action diet pill.
PhenQ is clinically proven, accredited and available to buy direct without prescription.
