Proactol Plus Review
What You Should Know
Proactol Plus is a fat binder, which means there is fiber in the supplement. Certain forms of fiber have been touted, marketed and sold as fat binder though they don’t really bind to anything. You may notice extreme weight loss, pictures of fatty foods and other visual images that attempt to convince you to buy the product, but the only evidence that matters is the data behind the ingredients and real life testimonials.
List of Ingredients
- Opuntia Ficus Indica
The ingredient list for Proactol Plus is nearly impossible to find. We searched for more than 10 minutes jumping from one page to the next in hopes of stumbling on to the names of the two fibers referenced in all of the product literature. We felt fairly certain glucomannan was one, but we were uncertain of the other. We finally stumbled on an external website created by an affiliate marketer selling promoting Proactol Plus. He uploaded a picture of the package and that is when we realized there was only one fiber, not two and that fiber was an extract of the prickly pear.
We looked around for some sort of clinical proof or evidence that prickly pear was effective at binding fat or slowing digestion, but we could find any studies involving humans at all. The Proactol Plus manufacturer claimed there were studies proving the supplement aided in weight loss. All of those studies are published on the Proactol website, but no links to peer-reviewed journals were listed.
Even after looking through the testimonials we were not convinced Proactol Plus provided any weight loss support. The photos are grainy and most look like the dieters never lost any weight at all.
- Prickly pear is a good source of fiber.
- May reduce hunger.
- Fiber supports colon health.
- Ingredients are not listed on the official website.
- Prickly Pear is not clinically associated with weight loss.
- Clinical studies are published on the Proactol website – not an external journal.
Proactol Plus does not give dieters the information they need to make an educated decision about the supplement. The before and after photos are grainy and not very convincing, in most cases and there is no mention of the ingredients in the formula on the official website. It took use nearly 30 minutes of sorting through affiliate sites before we were able to find an actual product label. That’s not exactly the best business practice.
