Recommendations for use

  • For weight reduction: take 2 Tablets, twice daily with the 2 meals of the day that have the highest fat content.
  • For weight maintenance: 1 tablet taken twice daily should be sufficient.
  • Take the formoline L112 tablet/tablets with at least 250 ml (half a pint) of water (to ensure the best possible uptake and carry the tablets through the stomach).
  • We recommend that you drink 2-3 litres/4-5 pints of water daily (as
    formoline L112 is a dietary fibre).
  • The body needs adequate nutrients, including fat-soluble vitamins such as A, D, E and K, and essential fatty acids. To meet these requirements, you should only take formoline L112 with 2 main meals each day. We recommend that you eat a third meal containing beneficial oils and fats to provide your body with the fat soluble vitamins and essential fatty acids it needs. Multi-vitamin supplements may also be required. Combine formoline L112 with a healthy, balanced diet (with reduced calorie intake and fat content).

Duration of use

formoline L112 Tablets are suitable for long-term use.

Mechanism of action

formoline L112 Tablets reduce calorie intake from dietary fats. The active ingredient in formoline L112 is the fibre polyglucosamine (L112), with an extremely high fat-binding capacity. It is of natural origin and can bind large quantities of nutritional fats in the digestive tract.

The active ingredient of formoline L112 is not digestible and is excreted naturally, together with the bound fats, significantly reducing the calories your body can process from the food you have eaten. Furthermore, the indigestible and expanded fibre materials of formoline L112 induce a feeling of being full.


  • In case of serious, chronic digestive problems (constipation, intestinal hypomotility, after surgeryl, metabolic disorders or the ingestion of medications which reduce intestinal motility, formoline L112 should only be taken after consulting a physician.
  • Do not take formoline L112 if you are prone to allergies or allergic to crustaceans or any of the other ingredients.
  • Do not take formoline L112 if you are underweight (BMI <18.5).
  • Should only be given to growing children and teenagers after medical consultation.
  • Not suitable for infants and children (up to the age of three).

Pregnancy and breast-feeding

During pregnancy and breast-feeding, dietary measures should only be initiated under close medical supervision as an adequate nutrient supply is essential for foetal growth and development, and for milk production.

Limitations on use

  • You should consult your doctor before you change your diet on a long-term basis.
  • Do not take fat-soluble medicines (including contraceptive pills) or vitamins at the same time as formoline L112. Avoid concomitant use of medicines or vitamins together with formoline L112 and wait at least 4 hours. If you are taking medicines long term, seek advice from your doctor or health professional.
  • Discontinue use of formoline L112 if you experience persistent or chronic constipation, and consult your doctor or healthcare professional.

Interactions and side effects

  • Due to the high fat binding capacity of formoline L112 all fats and fat-like substances can be bound, including vitamin A or steroids found in oral contraceptives and in menopausal discomfort treatments. formoline L112 may also impair the availability of fat-soluble (lipophilic) substances. Therefore, avoid concomitant use of medicines or vitamins for at least 4 hours.
  • The use of formoline L112 may lead to temporary changes in stool consistency and, in rare instances, digestive problems (e.g. constipation, flatulence, feelings of fullness) may be observed by inadequate fluid intake. Constipation may lead to short-term weight gain.
  • In very rare cases, allergic reactions to one of the ingredients are possible. In individual cases, symptoms of allergy may include diarrhoea, vomiting, nausea, skin rash, swelling, itching, sweating, tingling, shivering, dizziness and headache. However, formoline L112 is generally accepted as being well tolerated.
