Opti’brûleur from Dieti Natura, Presentation and promises
Opti’brûleur is, as its name suggests, a fat-burning supplement designed to promote fat breakdown, releasing fatty acids so that they can be used as fuel for the body, instead of being stored as fat reserves.
The manufacturer, Dieti Natura, doesn’t burden the consumer with shock arguments and promises, but simply tells us that its Opti’brûleur supplement is a good slimming ally, enabling measured and reasonable weight loss.
Guaranteed GMO-free and gluten-free, Opti’brûleur by Dieti Natura should be taken at a dose of 5 capsules a day, 3 in the morning and 2 at lunchtime.
Depending on your objectives and results, the manufacturer recommends a 1-month course of treatment, which may be repeated without restriction.

Dieti Natura Opti’brûleur is made up of the following ingredients:
1. Sinetrol :
Sinetrol is a patented active compound developed and marketed by Fytexia.
It is made from extracts of grapefruit, blood orange, guarana and maltodextrin.
Sinetrol has three main actions:
- Stimulation of lipolysis:
The caffeine present in guarana extract acts by activating fat breakdown.
It also increases thermogenesis, raising the body’s energy expenditure.
In addition, sinetrol has an inhibitory action on the enzyme phosphodiesterase 4 (PDE-4), which increases triglyceride breakdown and the release of fatty acids and glycerol, which play an important role in fat storage.
- Better utilization of fatty acids:
Sinetrol contains polyphenols that induce the expression of genes specific to fatty acid oxidation.
As a result, the body’s action on fatty acids is enhanced, and they are better utilized as a source of energy.
- Appetite-suppressant effect :
First of all, guarana has appetite-suppressant effects, which are reinforced by the presence of maltodextrin, a carbohydrate that increases satiety.
Finally, the presence of chromium helps reduce snacking cravings.
2. Nopal :
Nopal has appetite-suppressant and antioxidant properties, and is also known to help regulate blood sugar and lipid levels.
It is also used to relieve stomach disorders.
To find out more about nopal, you can read our full article on this ingredient, HERE.
3. Wakame :
The fucoxanthin found in wakame seaweed has the ability to reduce fat accumulation in the body.
This active substance stimulates fat breakdown and helps lower blood cholesterol levels.
Finally, wakame algae naturally creates a sort of gel in the stomach, increasing the feeling of satiety and preventing overeating at mealtimes, as well as snacking.

4. Guarana extract :
Although there’s already guarana in sinetrol, Dieti Natura’s Opti’brûleur contains even more!
To be more precise, in addition to sinetrol, the product offers us 30mg of guarana extract per capsule, i.e. 120mg for a daily dose.
Let’s quickly summarize the benefits of guarana: powerful appetite-suppressant effects; stimulating action on lipolysis and thermogenesis; diuretic properties that speed up detoxification of the body; an energy boost, and finally a strengthening of the immune system.

5. Chicory inulin:
Chicory has cleansing, tonic and mild laxative properties.
As a diuretic, it helps eliminate toxins and excess water, making it a good ingredient in the fight against water retention and cellulite.
As a prebiotic, it promotes balanced intestinal flora.
Inulin is the soluble fiber extracted from chicory root. It is used to improve daily fiber intake, but also to reinforce the sensation of satiety.
Dieti Natura Opti’brûleur and science
First, let’s take a look at sinetrol. Sinetrol has recently been the subject of 2 clinical studies.
The first study, conducted in 2015 by Fytexia in France, assessed the effect of Sinetrol XPur on body weight, abdominal fat, waist circumference and muscle metabolism in overweight men.
Conducted over a 12-week period in a randomized, double-blind protocol, with a placebo control group, the trial involved the administration of 900mg of the citrus-based ployphenol extract, Sinetrol Xpur.
The volunteers’ body composition and blood parameters were assessed before and at the end of the intervention period.
The results obtained were a slimmer figure and a significant improvement in metabolic parameters.
The researchers therefore concluded that over a 12-week period, sinetrol supplementation effectively and significantly improved the overweight process and muscle mass metabolism.

The second clinical study conducted in 2014 by the same group aimed to assess the efficacy and safety of a polyphenolic extract of citrus and red orange on weight management, metabolic and inflammatory parameters, blood glucose and oxidative status in healthy overweight individuals.
This experiment was carried out in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled protocol over a 12-week period, and involved two groups: sinetrol group: 47 people and placebo group: 48 people.
Sinetrol XPur was given to overweight subjects twice daily with the main meals.
The results suggest that sinetrol-based supplementation (in the case of this study Sinetrol XPur) represents a viable oprion for reducing abdominal fat, waist and hip circumference, and body weight, and helps Improve oxidative status and blood glucose levels in healthy overweight people.

The results of these studies are summarized in this table:
Concerning nopal, several studies have been carried out, including one on Neopuntia, a patented nopal extract often used in slimming supplements.
The results of this study, which recommended taking nopal extract 30 minutes before consuming a sugary drink, showed that nopal reduced the body’s glycemic response.
These results are very encouraging, and nopal could indeed help reduce diet-induced blood sugar levels.

Testimonials from Opti’brûleur users
Many people have tested this slimming product. Opinions are divided and sometimes contradictory.
For some, this supplement is highly effective. It refines the figure, gives a sensation of lightness, increases energy and provides a real boost to weight loss.
For others, on the other hand, the product produced no results at all.
What we can conclude from this is that, like all slimming supplements, each person and each organism is different, and responds differently to a product. So it’s perfectly normal for a supplement to work perfectly for some, and not at all for others.
In general, this product enjoys a good reputation and the overall trend in reviews is quite positive.
