Boots Dual Action and Carb and Fat Control 60 tablets

Boots Dual Action Carb and Fat Control is a multi layer tablet that can reduce the amount of dietary fat and complex carbohydrate that is absorbed by the body.

The outer layers contain Captoglicolipid which binds the fat from food in the stomach, preventing its absorption, whilst the inner layer contains Captocarb which reduces the amount of complex carbohydrates digested and absorbed.

Boots Dual Action Carb and Fat Control can be used as part of a reduced calorie diet with appropriate levels of physical exercise and lifestyle changes to help you lose weight or treat obesity.
