Turboslim Calorie Trapper is a nonprescription weight loss supplement that claims that it will help to “trap” up to half of all of the calories from a dieter’s meals. This product is marketed to individuals who struggle with overindulging and find themselves eating rich meals that make it difficult for them to lose weight.
The official website for the manufacturer of Turboslim Calorie Trapper, Forte Pharma Laboratoires (from France) provides very little information about what is in the product and how those ingredients can help a dieter to lose weight more quickly and easily. It has been suggested by review sites online that this product may be the same as another product that is sold by the company, called Calorilight, which appears to be the international version of the pills. Other than the name, no difference could be found between the two.
The directions on the package suggest that these pills should be taken two at a time with water during a meal, one to three times per day. The capsules come in a convenient blister pack that dispenses the capsules two at a time. The manufacturer also states that if you have a lot of weight to lose or if your meals are especially rich, then you can double the dose and take four at a time.
This means that if the maximum amount of the product is taken every day (four pills, three times per day, for a daily consumption of 12 pills), then one pack of the product (which contains sixty pills) would last only 5 days! This has the potential of making the product exceptionally expensive to take, as one month would require the packets to be replaced six times.
The claim of the manufacturer is that Turboslim Calorie Trapper traps sugar and fat in foods and encourages them to be released instead of absorbed. It also slows down the absorption and conversion of sugars so that it decreases the opportunity for fat to be built up.
The product contains only one ingredient, which is a type of patented complex called Fibrocaptol™, which is made up of orange fibers and cocoa. This ingredient has been trademarked since 2008. At the time of this review, no information could be found regarding studies or clinical trials that would provide evidence to support the promises that have been made about the use of this product. This does not suggest that the claims are reliable and would suggest that another product would likely be a better option for helping with weight loss.
