About Lipozene

Manufactured by Obesity Research Institute, LLC and based out of Reno, NV, Lipozene claims to be an all-natural, safe, and effective method of reducing body fat. With more than 20 million bottles sold, Lipozene’s manufacturer claims that it is “America’s #1 selling diet supplement,” and is guaranteed to help you lose weight.

Obesity Research Institute, LLC holds a B+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, which is based on 144 closed complaints within the past three years. However, from a customer satisfaction standpoint, Lipozene appears to have an overwhelmingly negative reputation. The most common complaints include that it does not work as advertised, and that most of the ingredients can be purchased separately for much less money.

How Lipozene Works

According to the Lipozene website, the supplement is “clinically-proven” to help you lose pure body fat, based on three clinical studies. The manufacturer claims it is all-natural, and does not contain caffeine or other stimulants that can make you feel jittery. In fact, the primary ingredient in Lipozene is glucomannan, which is derived from the Konjac root, and has been used for centuries across much of Asia for a wide variety of health benefits. Other minor ingredients include gelatin, microcrystalline cellulose, magnesium silicate, stearic acid, titanium dioxide, and FD&C blue #1.

In order to use Lipozene, all you need to do is take 2 capsules with 8oz of water 30 minutes prior to each meal, which will create a “dietary fiber gel” in your stomach, help you feel full, and reduce your caloric intake. According to the Lipozene website, there are no side effects, though we encountered numerous customer reviews complaining of moderate to severe stomach cramps.

Lipozene Pricing & Refund Policy

If you purchase Lipozene directly from the manufacturer, it is currently being offered at $29.95, plus free shipping and handling. You’ll also receive a complimentary bottle of the company’s green tea-based weight loss supplement MetaboUP with your order. If you’d rather purchase elsewhere, Lipozene is also available from Walmart, Walgreens, and many other smaller online retailers, though prices are comparable.

It’s important to note here that each bottle of Lipozene contains 60 capsules, which, based on the recommended dosage, means you’ll need 2-3 bottles per month ($60-$90), depending on your intake. As you can see, this can become a very expensive supplement.

All Lipozene sales directly through the manufacturer come with a 30-day money back guarantee—simply contact customer service for Return Authorization Number, and ship the product back to the company at your expense. However, we read numerous online complaints from customers who were refused a refund, even within the 30-day period.

Bottom Line: Is Lipozene a Scam?

While the primary ingredient in Lipozene has been clinically shown to help individuals feel fuller, resulting in weight loss, there are several red flags regarding this specific supplement.

First, Obesity Research Council was forced by the Federal Trade Commission to pay a $1.5 million settlement in 2005 due to “misleading weight-loss claims [that] violated federal laws.” Full details can be found here. Second, while Lipozene’s ingredients have been shown to help individuals lose weight, a one-month supply of the supplement will cost you almost $90. While this may not seem like a lot of money to provide a viable weight loss solution, keep in mind that the same active ingredient can be purchased elsewhere for much less. Also, some experts have noted that it takes more than 20 grams of glucomannan per day to achieve significant weight loss, while Lipozene only provides 4-5 grams per day.

Some additional concerns include severe stomachaches due to high fiber content, and extremely rude customer service. In fact, during our research we encountered numerous complaints claiming that customers were refused refunds, even though they were well within the 30-day guarantee.

So, bottom line: Is Lipozene a scam? While Lipozene’s active ingredient has been shown to promote natural weight loss, between the exorbitantly high cost and the company’s poor reputation for sales practices and customer service, we would recommend looking elsewhere for these same ingredients.

    Garbage, buy a laxative instead!

    • Beecher, IL,
    • Mar 6, 2016

    People years ago used laxatives to lose weight. This pill is no different except that it has extra vitamins in it. It does not curb your appetite, boost your energy level or magically burn belly fat. I work out at the gym 4 or 5 daya a week. This is not the solution. Glad I bought the buy one get one free deal at Walmart (bought 4 total) so I didn't get suckered into any automated billing system. A waste of 40 bucks but there are better energy supplements out there. Live and learn people and don't fall for the hype.

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

    Lipozene does NOT work.

    • Dayton OH,
    • Mar 4, 2016

    4 weeks on Lipozene and I've only lost half a pound and I've been dieting. Eating healthy and following package directions and nothing. The only benefit is that they keep me regular.

    No, No and No

    • Texas,
    • Aug 8, 2015

    I have been taking this for two months and nothing. I stopped taking then because they made me feel yucky. Now I just eat healthy, do yoga, and run two miles daily and I'm down 5 lbs in a week.

    Lipozene works

    • Moscow, TX,
    • Jun 24, 2015

    Lipozene really does work but you have to cut back on food. Eat healthier choices and do some exercises. I'm using it and love the results.

      Rich

      What you're describing is dieting. I can do that with cheaper supplements and exercise. Lipozene doesn't do what advertised, which is to get rid of belly fat living the same lifestyle as before.

    Does work but...

    • Wichita, KS,
    • Oct 18, 2014

    This product worked great for me. I took it for about 3 months and lost 17 pounds. The only problem I started experiencing is hair loss. So I had to quit and was afraid I was going to go bald. OMG! It was great but I don't want to be skinny and then be bald and then have to find something to grow my hair back.

    BAD PRODUCT

    • FT. WORTH TX.,

    Do not waste your money! I only gave it one star, because there was no other way to review it. Not because it deserved it.
