Fruta Planta - Frequently Asked Questions Answered

What have people reported about their experience with Fruta Planta? Does Fruta Planta really work?


The results are mixed. Fruta Planta has worked for many but became disastrous for others. Fruta Planta is an appetite suppressant and is touted by PRock Marketing, its official US distributor, as an all-natural pill designed for holistic healing originally formulated to shed off pregnancy-related weight gain.

Product testimonials appearing on frutaplanta.com indicate increased metabolism and weight loss for both men and women even without conscious dieting or exercise. The official US distributor claims that Fruta Planta targets soft fatty tissue areas such as the arms, legs, hips, thighs and buttocks.

Freewheeling discussion on www.prescription-info.com generally bear out intermittent results: Fruta Planta works if it’s the real thing and not when people use duplicate and/or imitation versions. Aside from the official US distributor, the weight-loss pill is available in online stores and neighborhood retail outlets. Fake versions of the pill tend not to work.

Laboratory testing done by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in December 2010 determined that Fruta Planta contains sibutramine, which is banned for US and European distribution for safety reasons. The official distributor maintains that Fruta Planta is an all-natural pill and only counterfeits contain sibutramine. While Fruta Planta is not on the FDA’s current list of tainted products, the government agency’s health fraud alert on this weight loss pill remains active.

How long does it take to see results with Fruta Planta?


Again, results vary. The official claim is 1-7 lbs within one week. Some product users posting on discussion forums have reported losing 5-8 lbs within one week. The range of reported weight loss includes 5-17 lbs within 3 weeks, 16-35 lbs within 3 months and up to 45 lbs in 5 months.
