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.

    Scam alert

    • Massachusetts,
    • Nov 25, 2016

    This company charged me for an item (trial item) that I never received then charged $96 with some change to my card. I had to cancel out my check card.

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

    Payment

    • Medford, MA,
    • Nov 22, 2016

    DO NOT trust this company with your debit card. The free trial bottle is not really free!

    They will charge you $95.90 for it! I overdrew on my account because I wasn't expecting this charge.

    When I called my bank they also informed that they get a lot of calls from customers about this company stealing their money. #scam!

    Unethical

    Whether the supplements work or not is beside the point. I ordered the 14-day sample. Nothing stated that if I did not cancel, I would be in their membership program and automatically be sent a 30 day supply on day 15.

    This was stated in the paperwork sent with the sample. When my account was charged on day 14, I called to cancel and express my displeasure.

    I was offered a full refund by returning the product or 60% off and keep it. Neither was satisfactory to me. I then contacted my bank to dispute the charge.

    I followed that up with a phone call back to the company. Spoke to a very helpful representative who immediately offered me a refund when I mentioned my bank and the BBB. The customer service is only open Monday through Friday so you cannot cancel on the weekend. Plus your trial period starts when you order, not when you receive.

    Very misleading. I am pleased with the person I spoke with the 2nd time but overall, very displeased with this company. I believe it borders on being a scam!

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

    I guess I got scammed too!

    • Medford, NY,
    • Sep 26, 2016

    After reading all these negative reviews, I guess I just got scammed too! I read all the positive reviews by Leptigen users from the Leptigen site as well as a product review from a well-recognized product reviewer about the product and ordered the two-month supply option on the 10th.

    I got the confirmation message stating “Congratulations! Your order was processed.” And that my order would ship within one business day via USPS first class and that I'd get a confirmation email.

    It's now two days later and still no confirmation email. The ordering page refreshed itself and all my info regarding my order is gone along with my order number and the $147.30 payment for the two month supply has already gone through.

    Needless to say, I doubt that I'm ever going to get the confirmation email and probably won't even get the 2 month supply of pills either, not that I'd want to take it now anyway after reading all the REAL REVIEWS for this crummy product. So once again I got taken! I'll just go back to using Hydroxycut for my weight loss needs.

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

    Guess I got scammed too!!!

    • Medford, NY,
    • Sep 26, 2016

    I didn't even do the 14-day free trial of this. I chose the 2 month supply option costing me $147.31! I ordered it on September 10 via my smartphone and they say a confirmation email will be sent and that it would take 1 day to ship via USPS First Class.

    I still haven't received the confirmation email and even though it's only 3 days later, I have a feeling I'm never going to get the email or product.

    Hopefully I won't end up getting charged monthly or bi-monthly for this crap!

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

    Scam

    I had to cancel due to loss of a job, they still charged my account. Then when I called they only refunded me $58 instead of the $96. I'm very disappointed!

    Scam

    Don't fall for the trial offer. The company will start charging your account $95.90 for a product that doesn't work.

    Scam

    • West Glamorgan,
    • Jul 10, 2016

    Absolute scam. Paid upfront for 3 month supply, took 3 weeks to get item with only 1 month supply and I had to pay customs tax on top of£14.84. They said the would refund it to my bank account and I have continued to email them to get either the money back or the rest of my order.

    Made me ill

    • Colorado,
    • Jul 10, 2016

    Didn't get charged after the trial but that was probably a happy accident. However could not take it long enough to tell if it works. Got really sick one day I took it but didn't know if it was because of the pills. But now I'm sitting here on the toilet feeling like I might vomit or crap myself, a couple months later. It makes me queasy, shaky, tingly, light headed/chills, upset bowels/stomach. I thought last time I must've been sick so I tried it again. Nope definitely the pills. I won't be taking Leptigen ever again

    Edit: just puked my guts out. Maybe that's how the diet pills work? You just puke all the calories away. Pill induced bulimia​.

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

    RIP OFF! Don't fall for misleading "Trial offer." It doesn't work.

    Got sucked in to trying this thinking I could cancel if it didn't work (and it didn't), but I called a day too late and got charged $89 for the trial. WHAT A RIP OFF. They could've at least refunded a portion, but made no effort and didn't care about bad reviews.

    Terms & Conditions Bait & Switch Crooks

    You must check that you understand the terms and conditions on your order. When you receive it, the terms and conditions are DIFFERENT. The operator will lie to you and state that the terms and conditions are the same on every document. It's important to print out your internet order and have it in front of you when you cancel. It's almost impossible to cancel. Although the original terms and conditions state there are no additional costs, the operator will try to convince you that you owe them $5.95 to avoid a trip to the post office and keep the product. This is a SCAM that I will report to the SC Attorney General. One star is too many.

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