To treat obesity patients are recommended to take drugs which inhibit appetite. They really help to reduce the excessive weight but have a lot of side effects. If you are interested at the safe weight loss without side effects, Xenical will do for you.
Xenical is a medicine for the treatment of obesity which contains an active ingredient Orlistat. This is the safest drug for the treatment of the obesity prescribed both adults and children.
This medicine does not influence on hunger and does not bind to the receptors of the nervous system. The mechanism of the action of Xenical consists in the excretion of the vegetable and animal fats in the form they come to the human body with food. Xenical blocks enzymes which split fats, and therefore they are excreted intact in several hours after eating. Protein and some amount of carbohydrates which cover the needs of the body to keep energy are only digested.

Due to this, Xenical does not provide a systemic action, does not influence on the functions of the CNS, cardiovascular system and does not provide systemic side effects which may affect the efficiency of the treatment.
