About Leptigen

Leptigen is a nutritional supplement that can help you experience safe, effective weight loss. How?

By featuring a proprietary blend of clinically researched ingredients that help your body release and burn stored fat, leading to increased energy levels, boosted metabolism, and more calories burned. As a result, you can expect to feel energized with more mental clarity.

All you need to do is take two capsules of Leptigen per day at least 30 minutes before meals, and its “highly effective” weight loss formula will start working.

“Yet another weight loss pill,” you’re thinking to yourself. “Lots of big claims and little real-world results.”

But Leptigen claims to be different, in part because there is “significant scientific research behind the ingredients.” Is this true? Should you spend your hard-earned money on it?

That’s what we’ll help you decide here. First, we’ll talk about Leptigen’s ingredients.

Is Leptigen’s Ingredients Effective?

Based on the label on Leptigen’s website, the supplement contains:

  • Green Tea Extract 200mg
  • Meratrim 400mg
  • Chromium 100mcg
  • Natural Caffeine USP 75mg

Let’s take a more in-depth look at each of these:

Meratrim

Created by InterHealth Nutraceuticals, Meratrim is a proprietary formula made of just two ingredients: garcinia mangostana (another name for garcinia cambogia) and sphaeranthus indicus.

We’ve reviewed dozens of garcinia cambogia supplements here at HighYa, and have even written several in-depth guides about the ingredient, including Your Updated Guide to Separating Fact from Fiction. What’s the consensus?

There’s zero clinical evidence showing that it (or sphaeranthus indicus) can provide any kind of weight loss benefits in humans. Instead, much of the existing research was conducted in a Petri dish or rats.

Regarding Meratrim specifically, the Leptigen website references a 2013 study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food that found it, “in combination with a standard diet (2000 kcal/day) and moderate daily exercise, produces a clinically significant incremental reduction in body weight, waist, and hip circumference compared with diet management and exercise alone.”

Specifically, participants who took Meratrim lost an average of 11 pounds, while the placebo group only lost about two pounds.

While this certainly seems promising, it doesn’t appear that the manufacturer’s study has been peer reviewed, or that the results have been repeated in subsequent studies.

For more details about this, be sure to read Think that Clinical Study is Legit?

ChromeMate

Another InterHealth product, ChromeMate “is a niacin-bound chromium called chromium polynicotinate or chromium nicotinate that “may help increase the effectiveness of chromium, an essential trace mineral that may help support blood sugar levels already within normal range.”

Whether contained in ChromeMate or just by itself, chromium is often used to treat diabetes and improve weight loss results.

Yes, there is some clinical evidence showing that chromium may help improve weight loss results (the Leptigen website references this study from 1997), but by and large, it’s insufficient to concretely state that it works.

Green Tea Extract

Green tea is a common ingredient in herbal weight loss supplements, since it contains high Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) levels, a chemical that’s been widely studied.

Unfortunately, green tea hasn’t been clinically proven to provide any benefits, weight loss or otherwise.

Caffeine

Whether from a cup of coffee or a can of energy drink, there’s no doubt that a strong dose of caffeine can improve your concentration and get your body moving. But will it help you lose weight?

According to WebMD, there is some evidence that caffeine can help you lose weight, but only when combined with ephedra (now an illegal substance since it was linked to heart attacks and strokes). In these cases, it’s most likely that the ephedra was provided the vast majority of the weight loss.

Granted, if you ingest enough caffeine, you can drastically reduce your appetite. Which, over the long run, might help you lose weight.

But drinking that much caffeine can cause some unwanted side effects, like nervousness, insomnia, upset stomach, irritability, and more.

How much will all these ingredients cost you?

Is Leptigen Expensive?

If you’re thinking about buying Leptigen, you have three options:

  • 1 Bottle: $109.95
  • 2 Bottles: $199.90
  • 3 Bottles: $269.85

Despite its high price, Leptigen comes with a 120-day refund policy, less S&H charges. The company also claims that they “cannot accept returns on overly used products,” but provide no additional clarification.

In order to request a refund, you’ll need to call the company at 800-555-3951.

What do we know about the company behind Leptigen?

Who Makes Leptigen?

Leptigen wasn’t listed with the Better Business Bureau at the time of our research, and there weren’t any other company names shown on the supplement’s website. Basically, all we’re told is that they’re based out of Coral Cables, FL.

But here’s our hunch: 50% of Leptigen’s ingredients are proprietary formulations from InterHealth Nutraceuticals, so we think this is probably Leptigen’s manufacturer.

Do we know for sure? No. But we’ve reviewed hundreds of nutritional supplements here at HighYa, so I suppose we’d call it an educated hunch.

Are Customers Happy with Leptigen?

From a customer satisfaction standpoint, it doesn’t get much better.

After sifting through all the affiliate sites, we found only two pieces of legitimate customer feedback about Leptigen, both on Supplement-Geek.com. There, customers complained that the supplement was ineffective, and that customer service was poor.

Interestingly, although Supplement-Geek’s review was only a couple weeks old at the time of our research, Leptigen apparently had a different ingredient formulation: there, an Avesil proprietary blend and ashwagandha root were included.

Pro tip: If you compare Leptigen’s ingredients with Avesil’s, they’re almost the same supplement, although the company who manufactures Avesil is based out of Miami, FL.

Is Leptigen Your Solution to Easy Weight Loss?

Here’s the truth: The only way to lose weight and keep it off is by eating healthy and exercising regularly. End of story.

Can supplements like Leptigen help boost your results? Based on their largely ineffective list of ingredients, we think it’s unlikely. And even if it does work, you probably won’t receive any benefits that are in line with its super high price.

Speaking of which, Leptigen is one of the most expensive weight loss supplements we’ve reviewed to date!

Bottom line: Instead of buying Leptigen, we think your money would be better spent making an appointment with your physician, visiting a personal trainer, or speaking with a dietician.

    This is a fraud and I would avoid it like plague. First, the free sample I received made my heart go nuts and next, they charge me for the next month's supplies even though I put in a request to cancel my subscription. Please avoid these people.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

  • Awesome customer service

    I have been using the product for a couple of weeks on their trial and what I have found is it helps my overall mood more than losing weight.

    I feel much more relaxed and happy while taking it, so for me, that is a huge win. I forgot to take two pills a day so that may be why I haven't dropped weight. Also, I have read that it takes a couple of months to get used to the product. I have a heart murmur and have had NO side effects. No heart racing or jitters of any kind.

    Instead of ordering online, I called the company and they gave me a longer trial supply and reduced the cost down to $49 a month for autoship. I just called because I am not ready to start my autoship and he is sending me another 7-day supply free of charge, not even charging for shipping, and extending my autoship to May 12th just to make sure I am happy with the product. I've had nothing but positive interactions with this company.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Tried despite negative posts

    I didn't experience poor customer service but after reading reviews I bought a 90-day supply but didn't sign up for the recurring option. I haven't given it much of a shot yet as I have taken it here and there. Trying to make a committed effort to see if really works so I will repost but they did call me just to see how things were going and I was honest with them. I would say if going to try then don't sign up for recurring ship option but by a supply that will last you the time you want to try it. Stay tuned for results.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Horrible, do not buy!

    They reel you in with a free trial of 30 days but the fine print is actually 15 days. They autoship and charge your account $100 before a month has ended. Tried calling the number which I had to get from my credit card company, no number on the website and no answer through email contact. Once I reached someone with a number I had to decode from my credit card company, it had 2 extra numbers in the phone number, I finally got someone who told me an unopened product couldn't be returned and they would give me a 25% refund. TOTAL CRAP!

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Don't let them steal your money!

    • Texas,
    • Mar 27, 2017

    Do not sign up for the free trial and save yourself a headache!

    If you get scammed by this company, you need to call your credit card fraud department and call this company on three way. This was the only way they agreed to a 100% refund. I had tried calling them on my own about three times, and they told me they couldn't refund me. It wasn't until the bank called that they acted differently.

    Don't give up. Don't let them steal your money!

    Auto enroll to a $95 monthly charge

    • South Dakota,
    • Mar 9, 2017

    No! Don't purchase the trial for $18 plus some probiotic supplement for $3.95.

    A month later I was charged $95 (which I did not sign up for). The packaging provided no contact information but a piece of junk wrist step counter (I think) and another bottle half the size as the "sample." How is that, the sample being twice the size as the regular bottle?

    Anyway, I finally just called my bank and had them place a stop payment, and they refunded my $95.

    So there, scamming bastards.

    Scam

    • Australia,
    • Mar 8, 2017

    I paid roughly $4 from my credit card to try this weight loss junk, and they have charged my credit card $128 (Australian) and sent me another bottle totally unauthorized.

    This is an awful company that is scamming people. I am looking to cancel my credit card to ensure no further theft from my account. How DISGUSTING!

    SCAM

    This is an awful company. They stole nearly $100 from my account and told me I can try to get a refund in 30 days, and no sooner.

    This is a joke!

    Scam artists at work

    I called to cancel within 15 days because the product did not provide results. I did NOT sign up or approve the auto shipments, but they shipped the auto shipment within 14 days and billed me $100.

    Do NOT do business with this company! No response from the non-existent customer service other than the guy that tried to tell me I couldn't count 15 days.

    If I could rate zero, I would.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Not as good as it claims

    • North Carolina,
    • Feb 16, 2017

    You have to give your credit card to order the free sample, and then it's very difficult to cancel when you realize you don't want the recurring subscription. My card was charged before the free trial period ended, and before the item left their facility, and yet they refused to refund me.

    I was told that even if I returned the product, they would give me a partial credit towards something else, but they don't give refunds, so the money back guarantee is completely false!

    The only good thing about taking this was it did curb my appetite, but it wasn't worth the other side effects that accompany it. There are other products that work just the same (or better) for a lot less than $95.90 for a 30-day supply.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Leptigen is a scam.

    • BC,
    • Feb 9, 2017

    All of the reviews on this site are correct, that a "free" sample is just a way to start an auto ship program every month and steal $95.90 out of you credit card. Do NOT deal with this company.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
