Advalean is now Lipitrex
Advalean, now called Lipitrex, is yet another diet pill touting a number of quality ingredients, but including a minimal amount of each in the actual diet pill. They changed its name a while back for some reason (probably because it wasn’t doing well and they needed a marketing boost) but the overall diet pill is essentially the same.
- Magnesium (100 mg)
- Chromium (100 mcg)
- Green Tea (100 mg)
- Coleus Forskohlii (120 mg)
- PinnoThin (1500 mg)
- CLA (1500 mg)
- Citrus Aurantium (100 mg)
- Guarana (200 mg)
Magnesium – While it may have some health benefits, it isn’t going to do much to help you lose weight.
Chromium -Studies show mixed ideas when it comes to chromium being an effective weight loss ingredient. It is important to your overall health.
Green Tea – Green tea is one of the few diet pill ingredients that is actually supported by alot of clinical research. It functions through increasing your metabolic rate. While we always like to see green tea included in a diet pill, Advalean includes a measly 100 mg which is way below the recommended amounts.
CLA - One study I found on CLA used 1.8 g and found CLA to help with weight loss. Lipitrex uses 1.5 g which is pretty close (although probably not close enough) to the amount needed to be effective.
Citrus Aurantium – Contains synephrine, which is actually a very effective ingredient when the correct amound is used. You must be careful, however, as citrus aurantium only contains synephrine. It doesn’t say how much synephrine is actually included. Many diet pill companies include synephrine but in very small amounts, making it useless.
The short story is this: Advalean includes some good ingredients, butin amounts that aren’t high enough to be effective (likely to help pad their margins).
Advalean is like many other diet pills that try to hide behind their ingredient list in hopes that you wont notice (or do the research to find out) how much of the ingredients are actually included. Thumbs down for Advalean as well as the “new” diet pill called Lipitrex. For a better view of the marketing and company behind Advalean and Lipitrex, see my Lipitrex Review.
