FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW SHOULD I TAKE PLENITY?
Plenity should be taken 20 minutes before lunch and dinner in the form of three capsules with 16 ounces (2 glasses) of water. This is required because Plenity absorbs and mixes with the water it is taken with. With that, you will feel fuller throughout the day as you continue to use it. But in case you forget to take Plenity before your meal, don’t worry, just take it with 16 oz. of water during or immediately after your meal.
IS PLENITY CONSIDERED A DRUG?
Plenity is not a drug. It contains no stimulants and has no addictive potential. Although it can be easily mistaken as a weight loss medication, due to its capsule form, Plenity is only a device that mimics the sensation of fullness in your stomach. It does not enter your bloodstream.
HOW MUCH WEIGHT CAN I EXPECT TO LOSE WITH PLENITY?
A clinical study showed that nearly 6 out of 10 people who took Plenity lost at least 5% of their body weight in 6 months. Their weight loss was 10% on average (about 22 pounds). Additionally, the clinical study demonstrated that there was no difference in overall side effects compared to placebo. The most common side effects included fullness, bloating, flatulence, and/or abdominal pain.
WHO IS NOT SUITABLE FOR PLENITY?
Plenity is not suitable for patients under the age of 22 and for those who are pregnant or are allergic to cellulose, citric acid, sodium stearyl fumarate, gelatin, or titanium dioxide, you should not take Plenity. It is also important to note that Plenity is not a treatment option to replace healthy lifestyle changes like a balanced diet and regular physical activity.
DOES PLENITY HAVE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
In clinical studies, Plenity overall incidence of side effects was comparable to that of a placebo. The most common side effects were diarrhea, distended abdomen, infrequent bowel movements, and flatulence.
