Lipo 6 claims to be “the ideal fat burner for men and women who want to win the fight against body fat.” One of their big sells is that they use liquid capsules that provide “maximum strength” and “rapid result.” They go on to say that “Lipo-6 consists of pure pharmaceutical-strenth ingredients and does not contain inferior herbal compunds that cannot be efficiently absorbed by the human body. This allows for a pronounced, yet consistent and preditable, fat0loss effect with Lipo-6 as opposed to a guessing game in so called other fat burners that rely on herbal ingredients.”
This Lipo-6 review will take a better look at the actual ingredients included to see if it is all that the website claims that it is.
- Synephrine (20 mg)
- Guggulsterones Z&E (20 mg)
- Yohimbine HCL (3 mg)
- Caffeine Anhydrous (200 mg)
- Bioperine (5 mg)
Synephrine – Another strong stimulant, synephrine has been shown in some clinical studies to promote weight loss. Some warn of adverse side effects common with stimulants. It’s becoming more and more popular among diet pills, and probably for good reason.
Guggulsterones Z&E - Guggulsterones have been shown in some studies to help in weight loss through optimizing thyroid functions. Many suggest that there needs to be more research to be definitive.
Yohimbine HCL – Has been shown in some studies to increase fatty acid mobilization.
Caffeine Anhydrous – A fancy name for caffeine, caffeine anhydrous is one of the few ingredients that has been proven to aid in weight loss time and time again. Its known to increase energy levels dramitacally, having an large impact during exercise.
Bioperine (5 mg) -While Bioperine doesn’t have a ton of documented research backing it, it reportedly helps in the nutrient absorption. The idea is that the better your body obsorbs the nutrients, the more healthy and likely to lose weight it becomes.
Lipo-6 is definitely a stimulant based pill. The two ingredients that will likely be effective are synephrine and the caffeine. The others aren’t necessarily bad ingredients, but some more research is needed to be declared proven. We do like that Lipo-6 disclosed the amounts of the ingredients.
A note should be said to those who are considering Lipo-6 who may not fare well with stimulants such as caffeine. This diet pill appears to have a good amount of stimulants that may effect you adversly. If you easily get jitters or other side effects from stimulants, Lipo-6 is probably a poor choice in a diet pill.
From the looks of it, Lipo-6 is strongly marketed to the weightlifters that could also lose a few pounds. Regretably, they provide little information on the ingredients actually included in the diet pill and focus more on a sales pitch and success stories. The majority of their marketing is done through before and photos (and you all know how I feel about those). These photos, in particular, stick out. The before photos are average, but the after photos look like something off of a weightlifting magazine! Some may see this as a positive selling point. For me, it just makes the results (or the lack of results related directly to the diet pill) even more transparent. It is painfully obvious that these subjects have gone through some serious weight lifting and exercise regimes in order to end up with the body that they did. I’m guessing it was a complete overhaul of lifestyle (which is a great thing, but the diet pill isn’t what is causing such results).
This is all explained by the small note at the bottom of the pictures: “Regular exercise & proper nutrition are essential for achieving your weight-loss goals. Individuals shown have been remunerated. Results not typical. As individuals vary so will results.“
For those wondering, remunerated means that they have been paid for their involvement. This poses two problems. The results are obviously biased. And its very possible that Lipo-6 went to great extremes to help these subjects lose the weight that they did (providing personal trainers, etc.). I’m just speculating here, but it certainly doesn’t seem to far fetched does it?
Also, the only photos they provide are showing results that are “not typical.” I don’t know about you, but I’d like to see some typical (e.i. most likely) results. What can I expect from this product if I don’t work out 8 hours a day?
$44.95 gets you one bottle. This is a pretty average price for a diet pill.
You can return your product within 30 days of the invoice date and you must have a return authorization number (which I imagine you have to call to get). 30 days certainly isn’t a very long guarantee, and its definitely not a “no questions asked” return policy. I’m again speculating, but it doesn’t sound like you’ll have an easy time getting your money back if it doesn’t work.
Lipo-6 is a mixed bag in our opinion. When looking at the ingredient profile, it seems like it might be a decent product. The ingredients are proven for the most part and the amounts seem…ok. Not great, but decent. The marketing throws us off a little bit. Why not include some before and photos of “typical” results? It seems a bit hyped up, which always gets a little nervous. Lipo-6 gets a pretty neutral review. I’m sure you can find better alternatives out there.
