Lipo-6 Review

This product doesn’t need too much of an introduction, it’s probably one of the longest serving fat burners on the market. The product has its origins date back to 2005 – has it stood the test of time? Are liquid capsules still something users should choose over the normal powdered capsules? In this Lipo-6 review we aim to clear up any questions and misconceptions you may have with this product.

Let’s take a look at the top level pros and cons of this product:

Lipo-6 Benefits:

  • Boosts energy levels
  • Helps manage fatigue
  • Great as a pre-workout
Lipo-6 Drawbacks:

  • Formula doesn’t contain any scientifically-advanced ingredients – it’s just a cocktail of stimulants
  • May not suppress appetite levels and cravings for food
  • Some seriously negative potential side effects
  • Contains a couple of dangerous stimulants
  • No money-back guarantee

Some Quick Information On This Product & Company

Lipo-6 is a weight management product produced by a US-based firm named Nutrex Research. To date, Lipo-6 comes in 9 different versions:

  1. Lipo-6 (the original)
  2. Lipo-6X
  3. Lipo-6 Rx
  4. Lipo-6 stimulant-free version
  5. Lipo-6 Black
  6. Lipo-6 Black For Her
  7. Lipo-6 Black Ultra Concentrated
  8. Lipo-6 Black Ultra Concentrated For Her
  9. Lipo-6 Black Intense Ultra Concentrated

Confused yet? Yeah, so are we. Each product is essentially a different formula of diet pill – all sharing a common theme of being loaded with miscellaneous stimulants. For the sake of this Lipo-6 review, we’re focusing on the original Lipo-6, but essentially everything written here is pretty much applicable to the rest of the Lipo-6 product range.

Nutrex were one of the first companies to utilise what is known as a LFHC (liquid-filled hard capsule). While Nutrex make a big song-and-dance about how their products use liqui-cap technology, the reality is that liquid capsules aren’t really that ground breaking – they are rarely seen in nutraceutical products (especially weight loss pills) because the technology just isn’t needed.

A liquid formula is absorbed by the body faster than a dry powdered formula. Technically this means the product gets to work faster, however this type of liquid-dosing is just completely unnecessary for these types of products – there is no real benefit to be had from absorbing the formula 2-3 minutes faster than a dry version. In our opinion, these liquid capsules are more-so used as a marketing gimmick so Nutrex can claim their product has a unique selling point.

The Lipo-6 fat burner itself costs around $22-$28, contains 120 capsules and will last users around 30 days provided to take the full directed serving.

Does Lipo-6 Work?

If you were to take the claims that the manufacturers make on Lipo-6 at face value, you’d be forgiven for thinking that this was a miracle weight loss product that can help you shed all your body fat within a short period of time.. After all, Nutrex do describe it as an “max-strength accelerated fat loss formula”. Unfortunately for humanity, Nutrex have not created such a product and none of that is actually true.

While researching into the formula, our Lipo-6 review team found that there aren’t any “fat burning” ingredients inside – there’s also nothing that will suppress appetite levels. As we mentioned earlier this was formulated back in 2005, and it really shows; all we have with Lipo-6 is a cocktail of extremely strong stimulants, Some of which that are dangerous, banned in certain areas and have some potentially lethal side-effects.

The only way you’ll lose weight with this product is if you stick to a low-calorie diet and exercise regularly. As the stimulants inside Lipo-6 will boost your energy levels and heighten your focus, think of it as a means of supporting your weight loss goals, rather than relying on it to deliver the weight loss results independently.

What Are The Lipo-6 Ingredients?

We have found the following nutritional information via the Nutrex Research website:

Two Capsules Contains: Caffeine Anhydrous 200mg, Synephrine HCl 20mg*, Synthetic Guggulsterones 20mg, Bioperine® 5mg and Yohimbine HCl 3mg.

Non-active ingredients: Vegetable capsule, Purified water, Polysorbate 80.

This product is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

*Synephrine HCl has some potentially dangerous side effects. This ingredient has been banned in most countries including the UK & EU.

What Are The Lipo-6 Side Effects?

Based on the ingredients inside this formula, our review team has compiled the following list of potential side effects that users may experience:

Insomnia, nervousness and restlessness, stomach irritation, nausea and vomiting, increased heart rate and respiration. [1]

Risk for high blood pressure, fainting, heart attack and stroke. [2]

Note: these side effects are possible but may not be the typical user experience.

What Are The Claims On Lipo-6?

We have analysed all available marketing materials for Lipo-6 and found the following list of claims that Nutrex are making:

  1. Causes fat loss – False

The manufacturers haven’t actually gone too crazy with the claims on Lipo-6, but of course the main claim is that the product causes fat loss – it does not.

No ingredient within this product will actively burn your body fat, any body-fat that you do lose whilst using this product will be from your own hard work. As we have stated this product is just a concoction of various ultra-strong stimulants, there is insufficient evidence to suggest that these ingredients directly cause fat loss without any changes to diet. As there is a lot of caffeine in Lipo-6, users may or may not experience a slight boost to their metabolism – this effect is entirely dependent on caffeine tolerance and user body weight.

Are There Any Reviews From Customers?

We have found the following Lipo-6 review testimonials via customers online:

The capsules were wet and sticky and it tasted very salty. I’ve never experienced that before. Talked to Nutrex and they said it’s normal… Not sure how “normal” that is.

this actually did lean me up quite a bit. If it sounds like I’m surprised its cause I am. I’m quite weary of all this stuff but this one seemed to do the trick

Where Can I Buy This Product?

Lipo-6 can be purchased from the manufacturers website. It may also be in stock in various other online retailers.

Our Conclusion.

To conclude our Lipo-6 review, we do not recommend this product. The formula is extremely dated and, in our opinion, quite dangerous – both Synephrine and Yohimbine are extremely strong stimulants that have some seriously bad side effects, what’s more both ingredients are banned in most parts of the world (excluding the USA). Lipo-6 doesn’t contain anything that directly causes weight loss and it will not suppress user appetite levels either – in our eyes, this product should be looked at as more of a pre-workout or energy pill, rather than a “fat burner”. Finally, the lack of money-back guarantee put us off.
