Bystrictin – A Surgery Free Method Review

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?

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.

Bystrictin Ingredients

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.

Conclusion

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.

  1. I think there are some other products in the market which will give much better than this one. In addition it is very expensive fiber product when compared with other effective weight loss pills.

  2. I was on Bystrictin 4 months ago and lost 12 lbs. But my weight loss was short lived. When I weigh myself, I was shocked…… I put on 10 lbs. since I stopped taking it. But now, I don’t want to restart with this. I will choose other supplement, with long lasting results.

  3. Hi Guys, just want to give update on my weight loss with Bystrictin, I had lost 5lbs in 20 days with it. I take it about 2 times a day which keeps me full for 4-5 hours. Now with this, i am able to control my craving much easily.

  4. I have to mention this, I had seen some reviews raving about this pill. I took them for 2-3 weeks, but my experience was totally different, I have not gotten any significant results with it and appetite continues to grow after taking this pill. Only a good point is I had not gotten any side effects with it.

  7. I got my order earlier than expected but after using it from 2 days I can experience speeding up in my heart rate and feels unpleasant. I definitely wouldn’t buy this product again.

  8. The best thing about this weight loss formula is that it does not come in the form of pills. As it is a fact that I hate having pills! Moreover losing this tremendous weight was only possible with this product only.

    Post a Reply
  9. I am a person who never favors pills for any issue, but for certain problems you need to have them. Weight loss is an issue that can be dealt with the help of exercise and various other drug free methods amongst which come these solutions, that are effect and don’t have that trouble of a pill and are effective meal replacement formula. I love these kinds of products!

  10. After having the Swiss chocolate flavored I noticed a sweet taste and then I immediately researched about the ingredients and got to know that it contains artificial sweeteners. I am a diabetic and have to avoid such products. Not suitable for me!

    Post a Reply
  11. I was amazed to know about this shake as I wanted to lose about 40lbs. after knowing about the guarantee I decided that there’s no harm in trying. Now I’m more than happy to have lost about 10lbs already. This product really works for me.

    Post a Reply
  12. Even after taking it I wasn’t able to control my appetite. I still feel the same urge and hunger for eating as before taking it. I don’t think it’s really working for appetite control.

  13. It contains whey protein. If you are allergic to cow’s milk, avoid using whey protein.
    Otherwise a good product.

    Try this only when you are not allergic to these things.

  16. After having used Bystrictin I found that it has actually controlled my hunger. It did help me to change my eating habits as well. The changes in results were positive and I actually lost some weight. I can’t image to take food without bystrictin as I don’t have will power to have less intake of food.

  17. I think the fiber ingredient in this product helped me to fulfill the weight loss goal. Whatever be it I was quite happy and satisfied with the results. I’m looking forward for a repurchase.

  21. I love this product. An ease and simple way to lose weight.
    Plus now I think more energetic to go for my daily exercise. I can now go for 20 minutes on treadmill.

  22. It didn’t prove worth for weight loss. I didn’t notice any significant weight loss and the product is a bit pricey.

    Post a Reply
  23. This is just a drink, not a weight loss drink. I don’t know who is saying that it’s a good product for weight loss. Minus stars or this product.

  24. “Bystrictim is a diet supplement that supposedly gives you the same weight loss effects of gastric band surgery without actually undergoing a medical procedure.”

    – Really impressed with this line and going to try this. Ordered today. Hope it works for me.

  25. Oh!! So bad..
    Why I trusted on this money back guarantee offer. They say that we had clearly mentioned this line: “you may return your unopened canisters for a full refund.”
    So I think it’s my mistake.

  26. I’m feeling very happy to say hat I had lost 10 lbs with this product. I was afraid to try this. There as lst of mixed review over this. They say that it is just a drink, they say that you may get allergic to this product, etc.
    Finally to say, more particularly my opinion is that it works. Must try this.

    • I had read these lines about the product : Medical advice or recommend anyone taking any nutritional supplement with other medications without first consulting with your physician.

  33. BYSTRICTIN is the best weight loss product with no stimulants. I had tried this and gained good results from this. I had lost 5 lbs in just 3 weeks.

    Post a Reply
  34. It is a good product. Hats off for this product. Really controlled my hunger. I was able to lose 10 lbs. in 1 month. I liked both of the flavors of this product.

    Post a Reply
  35. I don’t know why people are boosting this product as a good weight loss supplement.
    This is a clear calculation that this product is saying you have just 1 complete meal. The rest of the day you have to take this shake. Even a layman can understand that if you skip your diet plan and starve or drink a fruit juice can lose weight.

    Then why all are wasting money on that.

    Post a Reply
  36. If you apply some logical concept to this product you will find that you lose weight if you follow their plan. Without buying this product. They are telling you:” Make sure you eat at least one balanced meal per day while you reach your goal weight.” Then instead of that drink, you can go for your home made juice and eat one time only.

  37. Hi,
    I fell for the hype after hearing claims on the radio. I bought 3 canisters and will be finishing last serving tomorrow morning. I would honestly tell you that even after taking it as directed; I lost nothing but money I spend on this stuff!! I found your site and read about other weight loss product reviews, now I’ll read them to make a smart choice next time.
    Thanks!

    • Although I feel fuller and not stuffed for several hours after taking it, this product didn’t work for me. I wanted to refund it and they refused to refund my money. This is so disgusting!
