When you quit smoking there is a tendency to put on weight. Smoking burns up calories and increases the body's metabolic rate. Once you quit smoking your metabolism slows down to a normal rate and you are likely to put on weight. Thompson's Fat Blocker can help you avoid this weight gain once you stop smoking. It uses high potency Chitosan (pronounced kite-o-san) capsules as a natural aid in weight control. Chitosan is an aminopolysaccharide derived from the shells of crustaceans like crabs, lobsters, and shrimps. Chitosan, a natural marine fibre, has a unique ability to bind fats and therefore reduces the fat content available for absorption by the body. Thompson's Extra Strength Fat Blocker 500 also increases your fibre intake.
Obesity is on the increase worldwide with people consuming too much dietary fat and this puts them at a higher risk of developing diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease. By reducing the amount of fat consumed daily and raising dietary fibre levels you can achieve a better state of health. Chitosan is processed in a way that creates a magnetic affinity for fat, triglycerides and cholesterol in the digestive tract. The positively charged Chitosan binds with negatively charged fat and bile acids. This binding prevents them from being absorbed into the bloodstream and the fat is then carried through the intestinal tract and out of the body.
Used as part of a weight control program, Thompson's Fat Blocker helps to reduce weight by blocking the absorption of dietary fat. It may also help to reduce the risk of cardiovascular by lowering cholesterol levels and lowering blood fat. Thompson's Extra Strength Fat Blocker 500 reduces Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) levels while increasing High Density Lipoprotein (HDL), the 'good' cholesterol. Thompson's Fat Blocker is available in bottles of either 50 or 120 capsules and can help ex-smokers minimize the risk of weight gain once they stop smoking.
Take one capsule of Thompson's Extra Blocker with water up to 3 times daily.
