Gastric bypass surgery is currently one of the top solutions for obesity. It is very effective and has already helped hundreds of thousands of people lose weight. However, it is not for everyone and is only for the very obese and people who are suffering from serious obesity-related medical conditions. There are also many possible side effects from the surgery. There is also a considerate amount of risk involved since it is an invasive surgical procedure. What if there was an over-the-counter product that offers the same effects as gastric bypass surgery? Obviously, a lot of people would be interested. Let’s take a very close look at one such product and determine if it really is as effective as weight loss surgery.
What Is Bystrictin?
According to the Bystrictin website, the product is clinically proven to create an effect the same as gastric bypass surgery. It forces the person to eat less food leading to weight loss without the invasive surgical procedure. All the user has to do is to drink the shake followed by a glass of water. The all-natural complex is supposed to expand in the stomach over 50 times in size leaving only about 30% available for food. The process is just like gastric bypass while also triggering the brain that the person is full so that he/she is unable to consume food for the next 5-6 hours.
Bystrictin is from a company called Century Sciences, LLC which is based in Torrance, CA but the Better Business Bureau’s file on the company states the address of the company is in Encino, CA. According to the weight loss product’s website, the formula is manufactured in an FDA-compliant facility and it is classified as a dietary supplement so a doctor’s prescription is not necessary for purchase. It is also stated on the website that the formula is manufactured under United States Good Manufacturing Practice guidelines.
The ingredients of Bystrictin include whey protein isolate, whey protein concentrate, soy protein isolate, fibersol, glucomannan, potato extract, barley beta glucan, guar gum, xanthan gum, maltodextrin, lipid blend, cocoa, calcium phosphate, natural flavors, artificial flavors, salt, magnesium oxide, potassium chloride, ascorbic acid, sucralose, zinc oxide, copper gluconate, bromelain, lactase, lipase, riboflavin, folic acid and cholacalciferol.
The weight loss product is like a meal replacement shake which contains a protein blend, fiber complex (called Bariaxin), vitamins and minerals. The fiber complex helps fills the person up quickly controlling appetite and limiting food intake having a similar effect as gastric bypass surgery. The result is less food and calorie intake daily which eventually leads to weight loss.
What Does the Product Claim?
The product basically claims to offer the same effects as gastric bypass surgery. According to the website of Bystrictin, it helps reduce food intake by up to 70%. This means that the person will be eating less which leads to weight loss in the long run. You just have to consume the shake once or twice daily followed immediately by a glass of water to form a blocking gel in the stomach. It also claims that Bystrictin is better than gastric bypass surgery since it doesn’t involve the many risks associated with the invasive surgical procedure. It is obviously safer than gastric bypass surgery but the more important question is if it is as effective?
Are There Any Side Effects?
According to the FAQ section of the Bystrictin website, the formulation is 100% natural and healthy. However, it can take some time for users to adjust to the large amount of soluble fiber. The initial side effects may include gas, diarrhea or other digestive disturbances. Take note that the product also contains whey protein concentrate which contains lactose. Lactose intolerant individuals may experience digestive disturbances. Check the ingredients carefully and make sure that you don’t have a history of hypersensitivity to any of them to avoid allergic reactions.
Can Pregnant Women Use Bystrictin?
According to the product’s website, there are no results from tests showing the dangers of using the product while pregnant. However, it is recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing not to use Bystrictin until breastfeeding has ceased. There is no explanation for the recommendation anywhere on the website. If you have a medical condition or are taking any kind of medication, consult your doctor before using this product.
The 110% Guarantee
One of the interesting things mentioned on the website of Bystrictin is the 110% guarantee which is one of a kind. If Bystrictin is not the best weight loss program tried by the user or the weight loss goal is not achieved, the product can be returned as directed and the purchase price will be refunded plus an extra 10% as an appreciative gesture for trying the product.
Bystrictin is a very interesting weight loss product. Its marketing strategy is very effective in luring people. The concept of the product is also pretty impressive. There are many positive reviews from people who have tried it. Moreover, the unique 110% guarantee makes this an excellent deal. However, it is still uncertain whether the product is really effective or completely safe.
