Lipozene has to be the most famous infomercial diet pill I’ve ever heard of. It’s not the most famous infomercial product. I think that the “Natural Cures “They” Don’t Want You To Know About” or whatever it’s called takes that spot. Or maybe it’s the Snuggie or Magic Bullet. But Lipozene is for sure the most popular diet pill seen on TV. But while Lipozene makes a lot of pretty brazen statements about how it works, what it does, all that good stuff, I can do you one better. I can show you why Lipozene might work and why it might not.
Why Lipozene Might Work
Lipozene is pretty secretive about the one ingredient. But if you read the description, it’s pretty clear that the one active ingredient in Lipozene is glucomannan. There is only one study, not multiple studies. But here goes nothing.
In an 8 week study on glucomannan, 20 subjects were tested using 1000mg each or a placebo for 2 months. These subjects were asked NOT TO CHANGE ANYHTING and see what it did. Subjects who used glucomannan lost 5.5 pounds, which is pretty good considering that subjects were specifically instructed not to make any changes in lifestyle. And scientists also measured a significant difference in LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol). I assume that test subjects were more regular. But scientists didn’t actually keep track of how many times subjects pooed. It’s just a given with any major fiber. But unfortunately, there’s more to Lipozene.
Why Lipozene Might Not Work
Logically, you would think hey, these people lost 5.5 pounds in 8 weeks without making any changes, how much could I lose if I were to diet and exercise! But there is one major problem with all of this. Put false advertising aside for a moment (glucomannan is no fat burner). The subjects in the glucomannan study took 1000mg of glucomannan.
If you look at Lipozene, Lipozene does not reveal the dose used. In other words, I can guarantee that Lipozene does not use the clinically proven 1000mg. I’d be willing to bet that Lipozene does not even use 500mg. So yes, glucomannan is still healthy, and if you’re not using anything else, I can guarantee that glucomannan is still safe. But without 1000mg, glucomannan is not an appetite suppressant.
Does Lipozene Work?
Final word: NO Lipozene does not work. Lipozene does not suppress appetite, it does not burn fat. Actually, there’s no way that Lipozene would burn fat, 1000mg or not. I can’t even positively say that Lipozene could even lower cholesterol, which is more of an added perk. But without that, Lipozene just keeps shooting itself in the foot.
