Lipoclen claims some impressive numbers, will it really help you lose “10 pounds in 10 days” or is it going to leave you sorely disappointed?
- Nothing whatsoever
- Comes from Utah, the diet pill scam capital of the US
- Could be potentially dangerous
- Incredibly expensive
- Contains 40 ingredients!
- No scientific evidence presented
- Costs up to $160 for a months supply
Lipoclen claims that you can “Get the Most Effective Diet Pills to Powerfully Eliminate Waste and Toxins.”
This is done through a pleasant looking website that is neither over designed or too in your face. The nice green effect is trying to convey a feeling of it being a natural product.
Apart from a toll free phone number there are no other contact details on the website. In effect you have no idea who you are dealing with or who you are buying from. Apart from being against the rules of Visa and MasterCard where companies must show their details, this is also a highly dubious practice in our opinion.
Honest and reputable companies with nothing to hide are happy to display their full details, so any time you see them missing you should immediately get out of there. It is simply not worth the risk of dealing with companies wishing to hide; there are far better options of buying from a company who is proud of whom they are.
- Could cause serious health issues
- Possibly causes dehydration
- Could cause embarrassing Diarrhoea
- Likely to put any weight lost straight back on after finishing consumption
What Does Lipoclen Claim To Do?
Lipoclen is claiming it can give you fast weight loss of a pound per day, and it does this by being a colon cleanser. The idea is to flush our your digestive system and eliminate toxins and therefore lose a vast amount a weight.
It claims that over 70% of people who are struggling to lose weight is because their colon is “zapping energy, slowing the metabolism and preventing any real progress.”
This is of course completely made up as no studies have ever been done to show your colon could zap energy or slow the metabolism!
So What Is Lipoclen and What Are The Ingredients For Lipoclen?
Lipoclen is a blend of 40 ingredients!
Let me repeat that for you……40 ingredients!
This is probably one of the largest amounts of ingredients we have ever seen in a diet pill or colon-cleansing product. Normally when we see this many ingredients then it’s a case of being very wary. BY using such a large number of ingredients then anything that could be effective is usually diluted simply to get all the ingredients in there.
Here’s the full roll call:

Potassium Gluconate (100mg) 3%

Normally we like to take a look at each ingredient in a diet pill and see what evidence is presented for the claims it is making but if we did this here it would take you all day to read this review.
Instead lets take a look at some of the main ingredients and what they can do.
- Dandelion: The weed that is the enemy of many gardeners is coming in at a serving of 500mg here. Dandelion has been used for centuries for a number of medicinal properties. It can be used to treat infections, bile and liver problems and as a diuretic. The main reason for being included here is not listed despite it being the largest quantity in Lipoclen; we find this very strange to say the least. We guess it is designed to flush water from your system, which in some people can leave you dehydrated.
- Green Tea: A serving of 400mg is shown here, but importantly the type of extract is listed. Green Tea extracts can be effective for weight loss but it is very important what types are used. It is also a mild diuretic, as you will know if you drink plenty of tea you normally need the loo pretty quickly!
- Buchu Leaves: Again despite containing quite a large quantity at 250mg, nothing is listed about this ingredient on the website. Our research shows that it is a plant from Africa more commonly known Agathosma. The only medicinal claims we could find was that it was a diuretic and used traditionally for ailments of the digestive tract. No studies have ever been done into its effectiveness in weight loss. Again the only reason it can be included here is to flush water from your system possibly leaving you dehydrated.
- Uva Ursi: Another plant, this time widespread in Northern latitudes. It is a ground cover shrub and is included in a quantity of 250mg in Lipoclen. It contains a glycoside called arbutin and is said to act as a diuretic. Again its only reason for being included here would be to flush water from your system.
We are starting to see a pattern here, the main ingredients are simply diuretics and the rest of the ingredients are also either diuretics or have laxative properties.
So What Does All This Mean?
To put it simply Lipoclen is designed to rid your body of water through the use of large amounts of diuretics. It does this by working on the kidneys and blocking the reabsorption of Sodium and/or Potassium. It can also increase the amount of water lost in your urine.
As well as creating and expelling more urine Lipoclen is also designed to act as a laxative and flush food waste from the digestive system. If you have a sluggish bowel then it could possibly speed things up and you could be visiting the toilet more often.
Does Lipoclen Have Any Side Effects?
Lipoclen could potentially have some serious side effects.
The main dangers could arise from becoming dehydrated. By taking large quantities of diuretics then the body simply dumps water by creating excess urine. This can cause your body to become depleted of water and lead to symptoms like increased thirst, dizziness and headaches.
Dehydration can also lead to your blood pressure to drop to dangerously low levels because from the decreased blood volume. Your body literally dries out.
A further complication of dehydration from diuretics can be an electrolyte imbalance. These are substances that have an important role in the function of nerves, muscles and other tissues and when depleted can lead to cramping and an irregular heartbeat.
Anyone becoming seriously dehydrated should seek emergency medical attention.
A side effect from consuming large amounts of laxatives is that you can suffer from Diarrhoea. As well as this prolonged use can lead to intestinal paralysis, irritable bowel syndrome, pancreatitis and even complete renal failure.
Any Lipoclen Reviews From Customers?
There are a number of dubious looking testimonials on the main website for Lipoclen. Joe claims to have lost 27 pounds in 2 and a half months and Yve T claims to have lost 12 pounds in 10 days.
As always we advise caution with these types of claims as we have proven in the past that more often than not they are completely fabricated.
So Does Lipoclen Work?
Well it depends on what your idea of working is.
If you want to dehydrate your body and maybe become dangerously dehydrated then Lipoclen will likely do this.
If you also want to take laxatives and have a potentially messy situation on your hands then again Lipoclen could maybe do this.
As a safe effective weight loss answer that last long term then we would say that Lipoclen does not work.
Where Can I Buy Lipoclen?
Lipoclen is available from the main merchant website and is recommended on a number of fake review sites.
The cost for one bottle is $39.97, which contains seven days, supply! This adds up to nearly $160 for a one months supply.
This is incredibly expensive for what is essentially a diuretic and laxative.
Unfortunately they even confuse themselves on the website as they say a bottle lasts a month when taken as directed, however in our books 28 tablets divided by 4 tablets a day equals 7 days!
You can save money by buying a 4 plus 2 free offer for $159.97 but we would question the wisdom of taking this product for 6 weeks.
The payment processors for Lipoclen are Excitement Dietetics LLC who has ties going back a number of years to multiple diet pill type products that have left consumers feeling scammed.
Interestingly Lipoclen was available in a totally different formula a couple of years ago but after a number of complaints it was pulled from the market.
What About A Guarantee
The makers of Lipoclen offer a 90 day money back guarantee, however seeing as they are so shy of showing us who the company behind Lipoclen is then we suggest it may well be a tough ask actually getting your money back.
If you want to play Russian roulette with your body then go ahead and buy Lipoclen.
Taking large quantities of diuretics and laxatives for up to 6 weeks at a time could be potentially dangerous as your body becomes more and more dehydrated.
And here’s the sucker punch they conveniently forget to tell you……
As soon as you stop taking a product like this then your body acts like a giant sponge and sucks up every bit of water it can. As a result you pile all the weight you lost from losing the water in your body and then some more.
Couple this with the fact the product has links to the Utah diet pill scammers and the massively expensive cost then it is likely to end in tears for you…….or maybe even a trip to the emergency department.
We reject Lipoclean.
