Acarbose, when used in combination with orlistat in our prescription compounded product, can assist in weight loss by slowing the digestion of carbohydrates and lowering blood sugar levels. Reviews of our combination of acarbose with orlistat suggest this product can help patients reach a healthy body composition, and cut down on abdominal fat.
Acarbose has been found to help prevent excess glucose from turning into body fat by inhibiting alpha-amylase, an enzyme that turns carbohydrate into fat and sugar. The inhibition of this enzymes helps reduce the rate of carbohydrate digestion, which means they are not broken down into glucose and are removed as waste.
As a component of WAYT-less™, and when paired with a healthy diet and exercise program , some patients have lost weight effectively, even those who maintain a high carbohydrate diet or have occasional cheat days.
