Available from a few regional official sites, some offering free gifts others using rebilling payment and varying money-back guarantees, we find out what the story is with Liproxenol diet pills.
- Some promising ingredients
- Money-back guarantee (varies according to site)
- Proprietary blend – Ingredient amounts not revealed
- Dubious one page “testimonial” sites
- Consumer complaints
- US site uses auto-billing programme!
- Developed by Jeffrey Wilson, chief medical advisor of JW Labs
- Claims to have sold 1,500 bottles in first week
- Available online from US, UK and Australian sites
We began our review by taking a look at their official website. Depending on where you are in the world will likely determine if you see the US (or Canadian), UK or Australian version of the official site. All sites look similar, are well designed and show a company address for each region but no contact telephone is available.
There are big differences between the three main official sites, namely the strength of the claims made and the period of the money-back guarantee varies. The US version of the site is less generous offering only a 30-day money-back guarantee compared to 90-days for the UK and Australian sites, with no “free gifts” either. The US site also fails to list the clinical references seen on the UK and Australian Liproxenol sites too!
Liproxenol claims to be developed by Jeffrey Wilson, chief medical advisor of JW Labs and his team. We were unable to find the corporate site for the “team” behind this diet pill.
When looking into the product and company for any reports of scams or rip offs we immediately came across complaints on Scambook. Their Lipoxenol profile page details 14 complaints filed with total reported damages of $5,440 at the time of this review. Most of the complaints seem to be filed by Australian consumers.
We also found a number of one-page websites using “Liproxenol” in the domain that promote what a great diet pill it is. These sites are dubious and likely to be to be created either by affiliates promoting the product or the company pushing the brand.
Our Liproxenol review will attempt to cover issues for US, UK and Australian consumers. Let’s see what the claims are for this diet pill.
- A number of consumer complaints reported on other sites
- Number of one page “sales” and “testimonial” based sites promoting the product
- Lack of full ingredient profile making it impossible to know it works
What Does Liproxenol Claim To Do?
Wherever you look the official sites claim that…
Liproxenol gives you fast, and long-lasting effects that enable you to lose stubborn pounds and inches and achieve the body image you’ve always desired. You’ll look and feel great!
The manufacturers claim in the UK and Australian official sites that you can…
Lose weight FAST – up to 1 3/4 stone [11 Kilos] in 8 weeks! Clinically proven and Unconditionally Guaranteed for 90 days to Help you Lose Weight
They go on to suggest that more than 3 million Brits and more than 3 million Australians have used Liproxenol to improve their lives!
So What Is Liproxenol and What Are The Ingredients For Liproxenol?
Liproxenol aims to increase fat burning by boosting your metabolism whilst helping to suppress your appetite. This supplement suggests it can sustain metabolic fat burning using clinically proven ingredients that are supported by clinical studies.
It’s worth highlighting that some of the official sites reference lots of studies that seem to support this claim, you should be aware that none of the studies have been undertaken on Liproxenol itself.
Each Liproxenol capsule contains a 480mg proprietary blend of five active ingredients but in unknown quantities. Here is a look at the proprietary blend:
- Garcinia Cambogia Extract (50% HCA): Taken from a small fruit that looks similar to mangosteens and are called “monkey fruit”. Found in appetite suppressant diet pills as it’s suggested to suppress appetite and can inhibit the absorption and synthesis of fat. Effectiveness of this extract in “normal amounts” is unproven and in high amounts can be toxic.
- Dandelion Leaf: Used extensively in herbal remedies to treat infections and is regarded as a diuretic. Found mostly in detox and cleanse supplements but most likely in diet pills to encourage water loss.
- L-Carnitine: Clinically proven to increase the availability of fats that has been suggested may led to increased fat burning. The evidence supporting weight loss is somewhat mixed:
- Green Tea: Contains a good source of antioxidants due to the high amounts of catechins that are suggested to have great fat burning properties too. Lots of research supporting the health and potential weight loss benefits. The amounts used in this blend are uncertain!
- Cayenne Powder: Found in red chilli peppers and responsible for the color and fiery taste. Studies have suggested when consumed in the correct amounts can increase body temperature helping to boost metabolism, leading to more calories being burnt. Again the amount used here is unknown!
The remaining two ingredient quantities are revealed and these are:
- Vitamin B6 (5mg): A number of important metabolic processes in the body most notably the conversion of glycogen to glucose to help provide muscular energy.
- Chromium Picolinate (50Mcg): Ingredient found in many diet pills but has largely been discredited by the National Institute of Health as effective for weight loss.
So What Does All This Mean?
A few of the ingredients used have been extensively studied and have good evidence to suggest they could have beneficial weight loss benefits. As they are wrapped in a proprietary blend we are unsure of the quantities used and so how effective they can be in this diet pill.
The ingredients that are revealed are fairly benign and not thought to have any significant weight loss benefits.
Does Liproxenol Have Any Side Effects?
The manufacturer claims that no side effects have been reported.
Some of the ingredients are known to have diuretic effects so we would suggest ensuring you are properly hydrated by drinking sufficient water when taking this diet pill.
Concerns: You are recommended to consult a doctor if you are taking any prescription medicine or over the counter supplements before taking Liproxenol. You should avoid this supplement if pregnant or breastfeeding or under 18 years old.
Any Liproxenol Reviews From Customers?
We could only find consumer testimonials on the official Liproxenol websites and none on any independent websites.
What is VERY CONCERNING is that one of the testimonial photographs we have seen elsewhere for another product! We have contacted the company we believe this testimonial belongs to and are awaiting to hear back from them.
Here is the testimonial in question:
If this is indeed a fake consumer testimonial then this questions the trustworthiness of this company.
So Does Liproxenol Work?
Most of the ingredients used in Liproxenol have referenced clinical studies that suggest they have positive weight loss benefits in one way or another. This suggests that this diet pill does indeed work.
There is a problem though, none of the ingredient amounts are revealed and instead hidden within a “proprietary blend”. This means it is impossible to know whether sufficient individual ingredients exist to actually work.
What About a Guarantee?
The length of the guarantee varies. UK and Australian consumers have a 90-day money-back guarantee whilst US consumers have only 30-days.
Where Can I Buy Liproxenol?
You can only buy Liproxenol online from one of the official websites with the cost varying depending on site you order from.
The US site uses an auto-billing programme whereby you are charged $37 plus $8.97 shipping each month until you cancel. Be forewarned about this if ordering from the US site and read the terms and conditions in full.
The UK one month’s supply costs £39.95 with £5.95 shipping and handling. Ordering 3 or more bottles entitles you to free shipping and an assortment of free gifts, such as a bottle of AcaiSlim and a digital Pedometer.
Australian consumers can buy one month from AUD$37 plus $8.97 for shipping and handling. Ordering 3 or more bottles entitles you to free shipping and to free gifts, such as a bottle of Acai Berry and a digital Pedometer.
Consumer Alert: If you order Liproxenol from the dot com website please be aware that “you will automatically be shipped a fresh supply approximately every 30 days and your credit card will be billed just $37.00 + $8.97 s&h.” Also be aware that they do not offer refunds on recurring orders and will only refund the first bottle you ordered.
The amount of information about Liproxenol available very much depends on which official website you are reading. The US site causes most concern as it seems they use an auto-billing programme, which means consumers will automatically receive further product and be charged each month until they cancel. This could explain the numerous complaints seen for this product!
The UK and Australia official sites are certainly more transparent, clearly showing references to support weight loss claims for the ingredients used. That said the use of a proprietary blend means it’s impossible to tell if this diet pill will be effective!
The lack of independent consumer reviews is also a concern. So we can only reject Liproxenol diet pills.
