Liproxenol – is it a scam or can its ingredients really boost metabolism and aid weight loss?
What is Liproxenol?
Supplied in capsule form, Liproxenol is a dietary weight-loss supplement which has been designed to raise the metabolism and reduce the digestion of fat within the body. The supplement also claims to promote the process of thermogenesis (fat burning to you and me) and the subsequent oxidation of fats.
According to the manufacturer, positive results can be seen within a month if users follow the prescribed dosage of one capsule, twice daily with water, 15-30 minutes before breakfast and lunch; it is also important to follow a healthy diet and take regular exercise whilst following the Liproxenol programme.
What’s in the formula?
The product contains a combination of 11 active ingredients including White Willow Bark to boost the metabolic rate, Synephrine to aid in the breakdown of fat cells, and Uva Ursa which acts as a diuretic to detoxify the system.
Is Liproxenol effective?
Claims made on the official Liproxenol website states that the individual active ingredients have been clinically-tested to prove their veracity; a 90 day trial of the Chromium element was said to deliver 400% greater weight-loss in participants than in those in the control placebo group.
Studies with a group of 120 overweight individuals who were given Green Tea Extract reported that the weight-loss was 306% more in the active group than in the placebo.
In an 8 week trial of Garcinia Cambogia Extract (HCA) showed that those taking the compound experienced a reduction in their BMI (body-mass index) 5 times greater than those in the control group.
The manufacturers are so confident in their product that they offer customers a money-back guarantee if they are not satisfied with the results of the Liproxenol programme; if the user does not lose their target weight amount (up to 12kgs) within 8 weeks, they will be allowed to continue taking the product for up to 90 days until they achieve their goal.
As would be expected, the Liproxenol official website features a number of glowing testimonials from satisfied customers. Comments range from, “I’ve never received so many compliments in all my life”! From the lady who lost 4 ½ stones in 3 months to “Feeling like a young stud again”! From one excited man who had shed 2 stones in weight.
Other posts from independent forums included comments from customers who had used Liproxenol but had to discontinue as they had experienced bloating, cramps and stomach pains; others reported problems with Autoship programmes after having costs charged to their credit card without their knowledge.
Is it safe, are there any side effects?
According to Wikipedia, The key ingredient Synephrine can cause severe side effects.
“Products containing bitter orange or synephrine are suspected of causing adverse cardiovascular reactions.”
It is for this reason that the Canadian government have banned all sales of over the counter diet pills containing this ingredient. More countries are expected to follow, with the EU considering a complete ban in the next few years.
Is Liproxenol worth buying?
Overall rating : (2.5/5)
A quick glance at the Liproxenol official website will show that the products and claims made for the products have not been evaluated by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (of Australia) and are not intended to treat, diagnose, prevent or cure any disease.
While some of the ingredients do show encouraging weight loss results in various clinical studies – there has been no independent clinical trials on the formulation itself from any Medical or professional Health Care body.
With recent evidence linking Synephrine to adverse cardiovascular reactions, customers should carefully consider whether this product is worth any potential health risks.
