Does Lipo 6 Actually Work?

Updated on August 9, 2010

If your interest has ever been piqued by dietary supplement commercials on television, then you are not alone. There are countless celebrities and professionals attempting to make us reach into our wallets or purses, to “lighten” our loads of hard earned cash for products which will help us lose weight faster. It is easy to believe those claims when they are made, late at night, by a beautiful woman or a well-built man. Luckily, you can easily research products like Lipo 6 and find out just what those ingredients do – if they do anything at all!

Does Lipo 6 Work?

As the name suggests Lipo 6 is a supplement intended to burn fat (lipo) with six key ingredients. This supplement is in the form of a liquid capsule and was originally released in 2005, making it one of the first capsule-based fat burners in the world. Since then, Lipo 6 was voted the “Fat-Loss Product of the Year” for 2005 through 2008 by Bodybuilding.com which lends credibility to the advertising claims. In a market where “sure-fire” products come and go in the blink of an eye, the resilience of Lipo 6 is one which makes consumers take note.

It is claimed that the six active ingredients boost energy, block fat, increase metabolism and burn fat (as energy). Ingredients such as Citrus Aurantium, Coleus Forskohlii, Yohimbe, Bioperine and Carnitrex (L-Carnitine L-Tartrate) have all been the focus of studies in regards to their fat busting capabilities. Several of the studies have indeed proved promising while others did not prove, either way, that these ingredients are effective at burning fat.

Side Effects

While Internet searches will produce positive reviews for Lipo 6 or individual ingredients, there are still critics of the product. Articles are quick to outline the use of proprietary names such as Carnitrex which have little, if any, scientific research to prove the manufacturer’s claim. Solid evidence is also lacking for Yohimbe, a product which is believed to support muscle growth. Only anecdotal evidence exists and some of that isn’t even positive: some users report Yohimbe-induced chills and/or fever.

Concern over side effects of the ingredients in Lipo 6 continues to mount. Citrus Aurantium, also known as synephrine, is believed to increase risk of stroke, heart attack and increased blood pressure. Even if Lipo 6 is an effective at burning fat, it could potentially wreak havoc on the rest of your body, too.

      Hello Beth. This seems to be another product loaded with dubious controversial claims and ingredients with questionable benefits, or none at all. Save your money, stay away, stay safe. There are proven natural ways to lose weight and build muscle, so why can't people stop looking for a magic pill?
