Sibrutal is a pill that promises to help people to “flush pounds and detoxify” the body.
The manufacturer says it’s the “no.1 stomach blocker on the market”, but Sibrutal appears to have more value as a laxative and is probably better suited to someone who is suffering from constipation and looking for something to help them number two.
The product was brought to market by Barri Alternative Products Inc. Official records show the company was registered in California, USA, in 2012; so it’s not been around for long and the fact that the name of the managing director is the only entry made under “key people” suggests the company may be a one-man band. If so Sibrutal may be a white label product.

- Reduces the daily calorie intake
- Safe, natural and easy to take
Usage Guidelines The label states six capsules are required each day and should be taken with 8oz of water or other fluid. That sounds like a pretty hefty dose so we checked the Sibrutal website and saw it states two pills are required (with 8oz of water) just before meals.
Key Ingredients and Blend Potential
Six capsules provide 3,000.12 mg of a proprietary blend of psyllium husk powder and cascara sagrada.
Psyllium husk powder is a natural fibre extracted from the husks of the Plantago ovata plant. The fibre absorbs moisture and retains it.
This bulks and softens the stool. For this reason, psyllium husk powder is highly valued as a treatment for constipation, but it is not generally associated with weight loss.
Cascara sagrada is a compound taken from a species of shrub.
It used to be used in drugs designed to ease constipation. In 2002, the FDA issued a notice stating cascara sagrada and aloe extracts are not “generally recognized as safe and effective or are misbranded” and products that contained these ingredients had to be removed from the market.
The rules regarding dietary supplements are not as strict as the ones used for governing the distribution of drugs so both ingredients are still often used in supplements intended to ease constipation.
Sibrutal Customer Comments
The official website contains a few comments that are attributed to satisfied customers, but customer reviews placed on manufacturer’s websites may be biased and cannot be relied upon. Customer reviews placed on independent sites suggests Sibrutal has more value as a laxative than it does as a diet pill.
Sibrutal Side Effects & Health Considerations
Health experts at the Mayo Clinic state laxatives are not suitable for long-term use and warn overuse of laxative products can lead to dependency and impaired bowel function.
Sibrutal is unlikely to be suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding mothers. People who have existing health problems should always seek medical approval before using any brand of supplement. The same advice is offered to anyone who is using medication.
Where to Buy Sibrutal
When we visited the official website to gather information for our review the facility to buy the product had been removed. A message situated in the “rush me my order” area of the page stated the site was under maintenance. It’s a simple, one-page site, and everything displayed well, so we think it is more likely that the product has been discontinued and/or removed from the market.
There does not appear to be a money back guarantee.
What we are looking at here is a pill that should be very good for the short-term relief of constipation. It’s possible that the bulking effect provided by psyllium husk may create feeling of satiety inside the stomach, which could help users to feel a little less hungry, but the effect is likely to be minimal.
However, the fact that Sibrutal no longer appears to be available makes further speculation useless. Anyone needing a good laxative product or a diet pill to help them to lose weight will need to look elsewhere.
