Bella Capsules Q&A

What medications are in the Bella 1 and 2 formulations prescribed by KairWell Weight and Wellness?

The medications are phentermine, topiramate, naltrexone, and bupropion. Vitamin B12 is added to the formulation as a fat burner.

How do the medications work in the Bella formulation?

Phentermine is an Appetite Suppressant

Taking phentermine helps you to feel less hungry and can lead to a reduction in the number of calories you eat and weight loss. Phentermine increases neurotransmitter levels in your brain that cause your feeling of hunger to decrease.

Bupropion and Naltrexone Reduce Cravings and Suppress Hunger in the Brain. Bupropion is a norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor, and naltrexone is an opioid receptor antagonist. Bupropion and naltrexone work together in the hypothalamus to reduce cravings and hunger. A reward center in the brain called the mesolimbic system is stimulated by pleasurable activities such as eating or even thinking about eating. Bupropion and naltrexone can regulate these feelings of pleasure, reducing cravings to eat.

Topiramate Controls Blood Sugar

Topiramate is an anti-seizure medication that is also used to treat migraines that has weight loss as a known side effect. When tested in clinical trials, topiramate induced weight loss and improved blood sugar control in adults with type 2 diabetes and obesity. Some users reported that topiramate altered their sense of taste, which may also help with appetite control.

Vitmin B12 Improves Energy

Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin that is involved in forming DNA and red blood cells. It may also help fight fatigue, boost energy, and support weight loss effort as having high levels of B12 was associated with a lower risk of obesity in some studies.
