Propolene diet pills are made of natural ingredients (namely glucomannan, which is a fiber extracted from the Konjac Root) that act as an appetite suppressant and work by making the user feel full. Manufacturers claim that the over the counter pill encapsulates some of the fat in the foods consumed, and then prevents it being absorbed into the digestive tract. It is said that it then reduces caloric intake from fat and adding healthy fiber to your diet. In basic terms, once swallowed, the pill, which mainly consists of a natural fiber expands in the stomach (up to 50 times its original size), making the person taking it feel a sense of fullness – making them abstain from eating.
Glucomannan, which has been used for centuries by Asian women to help stay slim, reduces fat content in the blood and can help relieve constipation. The amount of weight lost varies from user to user, with factors such as a healthy diet and exercise determining the overall outcome.
Dosage: Manufacturers suggest that you take up to three capsules of Propolene about 20 minutes before each high fat meal, and it should not be taken more than three times a day. However, one tablet with a large glass of water (at least 8oz) before each meal is the dosage recommended for people who wish to lose a few pounds. But for people who wish to lose more weight in less time - as many as three tablets can be taken at one time, 20 minutes before each meal. Remember that rapid weight loss is not healthy for users, and can endanger your health if lost too quickly.
Propolene Side Effects: Glucomannan reduces one’s ability to absorb vitamin E and several other nutrients into their body. Consult closely with your doctor while taking this supplement, making sure that your vital nutrient levels are sustained.
Precautions: Due to the fact that the body’s ability to absorb some vitamins and nutrients is affected while taking glucomannan, it is strongly advised that users take a multivitamin/mineral supplement.
