What is Plenity?
Plenity is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Gelesis. It is a weight loss and weight management tool, used in obese adults with excess weight or obesity, a Body mass index (BMI) of 25 to 40 kg/㎡ in conjunction with diet and exercise.
Plenity capsules contain hydrogel particles made of naturally derived building blocks, which absorb water once in the stomach. The gel particles mix with foods, creating a larger volume, with higher elasticity and thickness in the stomach and small intestine, promoting satiety and fullness. The hydrogel is partially broken down by enzymes in the large intestine, losing most of its absorption ability. The released water is reabsorbed, with the cellulosic material excreted in the feces.
In clinical studies, 59% of Plenity responders had an average weight loss of 10% of their body weight in six months. Plenity is safe for use by people with or without other conditions such as hypertension, type 2 diabetes, or dyslipidemia.
