Leptithin is used for weight loss

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thank you for using HCM to post your question.

Leptithin is a dietary supplement and is used for weight loss. It is sold over the counter, and the ingredients that it contains are rice Powder, gelatin capsule, vegetable gagnesium stearate, silica. Through the two last ingredients, it promotes a laxsative effect of the bowel, by causing water loss, ans so weight loss.

If I was your caring doctor I would not recommend to use this medication for that purpose, because losing weight by using laxatives is not a healthy way to lose weight.

Hope this is helpful.
Let me know if you need more clarifications.

Regards,
