Everything You Need To Know About Lipase Inhibitors

Lipase inhibitors are powerful tools that can help with weight loss. If your healthcare professional has identified that you’re obese, you may be looking for ways to improve your health. When diet and exercise alone have failed you, it’s time to turn to the science involved with how your body burns fat and loses weight.

At Nu Image Medical, we know you have questions. How can lipase inhibitors help me? What is Xenical? We’ll address all of these questions to help you understand how they can be used to lose weight. 

What Are Lipase Inhibitors?

Lipase is an enzyme that is secreted by the pancreas and stomach into the gut. Lipase inhibitors prevent this enzyme from being secreted. One of the reasons why you would want to inhibit lipase is to stop the metabolism nation of dietary fat. Otherwise, it is absorbed into the intestine and will, eventually, lead to weight gain. 

Various lipase inhibitors will reduce fat absorption dramatically. It all depends on how many milligrams they are. The more potent they are, the more likely they can only be achieved with a prescription from a medical professional. However, once you reach a certain daily dosage, taking more doesn’t necessarily yield faster or better results.

There are a few different lipase inhibitors on the market, including Alli and Xenical. The main difference has to do with the level of Orlistat within each capsule. Alli contained 60 mg and is sold over the counter. Xenical contains 120 mg and is available by prescription only. 

It’s also important to know that Xenical has been approved by the FDA for weight loss or weight loss maintenance in patients that have a BMI over 30 or over 27 with other risk factors present, such as diabetes or hypertension.

How Do Lipase Inhibitors Work?

Lipase inhibitors work by preventing the enzymes from catalyzing. As soon as enzymes catalyze, hydrolysis takes place so that triglycerides are capable of being absorbed by the body. By exploring the various catalytic functions, you can see how a lipase inhibitor can be beneficial.

A lipase inhibitor will interact with the enzyme and inhibit the action that normally occurs. In some instances, the reaction is postponed and in other instances, it is prevented entirely. 

When your body doesn’t absorb the enzymes as designed, it comes out as waste without being chemically changed. This means that you have the ability to eat certain fats without having to worry about how they are going to impact your weight.

As of right now, orlistat is the only registered drug that is used for obesity treatment within the lipase inhibitor category. When you use a lipase inhibitor, particularly for pancreatic lipase, you control the hydrolysis of over 80% of dietary fats consumed. Additionally, by taking orlistat, or more specifically Xenical, you have the ability to block approximately 30% of the fats that you would otherwise consume and absorb.

Learn About Orlistat, Generic Xenical

What is Xenical? This is one of the more popular lipase inhibitors that are on the market. When orlistat is sold as 120 mg, it is often marketed as Xenical. It’s more powerful, which is why it is available by prescription only. It allows you to talk to a healthcare professional to determine whether this is capable of helping you achieve your weight loss goals.

Orlistat is combined with an exercise program and a low-calorie diet. You can use it even if you have various other health conditions, including heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, or diabetes. 

As a lipase inhibitor, it will prevent some of the fat in the foods you eat from being absorbed. Then, it will simply be eliminated through waste. This means that you can get some help with the foods that you eat. It doesn’t give you a free pass to eat whatever it is that you want, but it will allow you to have a high-fat meal or a cheat day from time to time without seeing an immediate spike in your weight. 


In most instances, the prescription is that you will take 120 mg three times a day before you eat your main meals. This allows the inhibitors to get into position before you begin consuming fat. If you take the pill after you have eaten, there’s a good chance that you’ll absorb more fat than what is beneficial.

The benefit of adding orlistat to part of your daily routine is that you will start to notice weight loss, even if you don’t make dramatic changes to your diet and exercise routine. Of course, making those changes is going to be even better for you now and in the long-term.

Orlistat can lower your blood lipids as a way to improve blood pressure problems. You may also notice that it improves insulin sensitivity. If you have type II diabetes or other blood sugar-related problems, you will notice a difference after you have been taking the prescription medication for a while.

Additionally, as the enzymes are continuously blocked during fat digestion, you will find that you can lose weight and start to achieve a healthy body composition. The longer you’re blocking the enzymes, the more you can lose. It will allow you to set a goal and reach it once and for all.
