Mirafit Diet Pill Cuts 500 Calories Out of Your Daily Diet

bottle of the diet supplement mirafitAt first glance, Mirafit seems too good to be true. It’s a dietary supplement that promises to help you lose weight without changing your diet and has almost no side effects. It’s naturally derived and doesn’t contain stimulants. Where’s the catch?

DietsInReview interviewed the two doctors who developed Mirafit, Dr. Joseph Artiss and Dr. Catherine Jen, to learn more about this supplement. The active ingredient in Mirafit is alpha-cyclodextrin, which is a dietary fiber derived from cornstarch. The molecule is shaped in such a way that it binds to fat molecules, making them unavailable to be digested at any point in the digestive tract. Each pill binds about nine grams of fat, so the total dose of six pills per day will keep your body from absorbing 500 of the calories you eat.

Unlike some supplements that claim to aid weight loss, Mirafit and alpha-cyclodextrin have been studied in a number of clinical settings. In a study conducted at the Grunberger Diabetes Institute in Bloomfield Hills, MI, the supplement was shown to prevent and in some cases reverse weight gain in obese type 2 diabetics. “When we do our clinical studies, nobody is on a diet and this is unique,” said Dr. Artiss. “We asked the participants not to change their diets, to just continue what you’re doing.”
