Lipofedra is a combination of four patented ingredients, plus 1,3-Dimethylamylamine a geranium oil supplement that contains natural epinephrine (adrenaline). According to Innervital the manufacturers, the combination of these ingredients makes for a powerful fat burning recipe that will boost the metabolism and help you to burn off hard to shift fat.
Innervital is an American company that market a range of so called health products, including breast enhancement pills, sexual performance enhancers and similar. Their range of weight loss products includes Avaprex as well as Phentremene and Xenamine.
This company does not create a very positive first impression. The Innervital website has the appearance of being one of those stalls in the market that look instantly dodgy and it all looks a bit cheap and untrustworthy. Practically the only thing missing is one of those fluorescent stars and some scrawled misspelt handwriting.! Lipofedra does not help improve this impression. The closest that this company comes to looking reputable or safe is a stock photo of a “doctor” in a white coat and even he looks a bit shifty!
The marketing offers some information about each of the ingredients but nothing in the way of consumer information. You are not given any instructions how to take Lipofedra, nor possible results or side effects you can expect.
In fairness to Innervital, the site does contain some general health information about losing weight safely, including a chart about body mass index and some guidelines for safe exercise, which we really like. There is also some general healthy eating advice and an explanation about thermogenic or fat burners.
Despite this general health, info there is very little real advice provided about Lipofedra. Worryingly it is impossible to find any independent customer reviews about this diet pill either.
Lipofedra is available from the Innervital website. You can also visit the Innervital Facebook page and reach the website via Facebook.
- FDA is very concerned about DMAA and we advise consumers not to purchase or use any dietary supplement containing DMAA
- No guarantee despite one being advertised
- No customer feedback

So What Does All This Mean?
Although the patented ingredients seem safe and they have been clinically tested under controlled conditions, the ingredients profile of Lipofedra is inadequate. More worryingly DMAA is not proven to be safe and has led to unpleasant side effects when taken in high quantities.
The amounts of each ingredient are not specified so it is impossible to gauge the dose and the balance of this diet pill. This lack of real product information is a major drawback because you really have no idea of what you are taking or how much. You are not given any information regarding how and when to take Lipofedra. There is simply no consumer information about this diet pill.
Does Lipofedra Have Any Side Effects?
Lipofedra does not contain caffeine but DMAA and Advantra are stimulants so you can expect stimulant related side effects. Mild side effects include jitteriness and sleep disturbances. More seriously it may increase heart rate and a sensation of your heart racing, palpitations anxiety and a rise blood pressure. This effect can cause a loss of appetite.
DMAA and synephrine can pose a serious risk to health especially if you suffer from high blood pressure or have a heart problem.
Caution: Avoid if you have a medical condition and seek advice from your doctor. Avoid if you suffer from a heart condition or high blood pressure.
Any Lipofedra Reviews From Customers?
Not one. There are no independent customer reviews and there aren’t even any customer testimonials on the website. You have absolutely no guidance regarding this diet pill.
So Does Lipofedra Work?
It is impossible to tell whether Lipofedra will work or not. The ingredients contained in the capsule are clinically tested and have shown that they may help weight loss but the lack of contents information is of major concern. It is highly possible that Lipofedra contains inconsequential amounts of active ingredient and there may be filler ingredients that have not been specified.
It is unlikely that Lipofedra will work as well as the manufacturers claim.
Alternatively one or more of the ingredients may be in dangerously high quantities and be dangerous.

What About Money Back Guarantee?
A money back guarantee is promised and Innervital make a point of including it in their reasons to buy. However, despite this prominent place in the advertising it is impossible to find out how the guarantee works and how you qualify to claim. Even reading through the terms and conditions draws a blank regarding the guarantee.
We do not hold out much hope that you will be successful in obtaining your money back if you are not satisfied. The guarantee looks like a marketing ploy that is backed with absolutely no substance.
There are no independent customer reviews regarding the guarantee.
Lipofedra is a very poor diet pill and this is in part down to the service and information offered by Innervital. Apart from the illegal ingredient DMAA the diet pill itself looks OK and contains a good range of other ingredients, the lack of real information about the product and how the company works is of real concern.
The fact this diet pill contains what the FDA regard as an illegal ingredient means you’re recommended to leave this supplement well along.Our verdict is to avoid it and buy an alternative from a company you can trust. There are plenty of more reputable companies and in our opinion better products on the market.
