Censor Review - Does This Diet Supplement System Work? Are cost and tatse deal breakers?

Editor's Review: 2.9 / 5.0
Censor Review

NDS Nutritional Products is a well-known name in the diet industry, so when we heard about Censor, we decided to conduct one of our in-depth reviews. We looked at the ingredients, clinical research, side effects, and customer service quality. We also read dozens of online reviews to get a general consensus; then we summarized what we found to give you the info you need to make an informed decision.

EDITOR'S TIP: Substitute Censor with a proven fat burner such as Leptigen for better results.

What You Need to Know

To start with, Censor has several ingredients that have some positive effects. There are omega oils and linoleic acids that often help with circulatory problems. Censor comes in a soft gel, and 2 tablets are to be taken 3 times daily at meals. NDS recommends taking this on top of a healthy diet and 30 minutes of exercise each day.
NDS Nutrition has been around since 2002, and they have a good reputation for quality products among health supplement companies. Their products are available through their official website, health stores, and online retailers. We like that they have some positive reviews, that the gels are convenient and easy to take, and that the company has some longevity, but read on…

Price–“Too Much for Me”

Our first concern with many products is the price, and Censor was no different. Dieting is not cheap, but with Censor, it’s downright expensive. “Censor is only $60 per canister, but with 6 pills per day, a canister only lasts about 2 weeks,” said our research editor. “When you add in shipping and handling, the monthly cost is nearly $150 for Censor, and there’s no money back guarantee.”
“I liked the ingredients of Censor, but the total cost is way too much for me,” said one user.
“Similar products are available in most drug stores for a small fraction of the cost of Censor,” said another.

Taste–Another Concern

Something else that we noticed in several reviews was the taste and aftertaste of the soft gels. “The gels leaked in the bottle and gave the rest of the gels a strong aftertaste,” said one customer online.
“These capsules are low quality; I can taste the ingredients and the bitter flavor lingers,” said another. Many people agreed with these comments, but some offered advice to minimize the bitter aftertaste: “I took these before my meals so that my meal would cover up the brutal taste of Censor.”
Our research has shown that whenever a diet supplement or workout program has particularly troublesome elements (painful workout routine, bad taste, high cost, negative side effects, etc.), the likelihood of long term success is slim. If Censor really does have a poor taste that lingers, it could be difficult for dieters to lose weight.
If you are set on trying these pills, try taking them prior to eating something with a flavor that can mask the strong taste.

The Science

Censor claims to be a proven weight loss supplement, but they also admit that when taken alone, Censor is not enough to guarantee weight loss. There is some science proving that omega oils and essential fatty acids can be good for heart health and can aid in weight loss, but these are not enough to lose weight without additional help. In order to actually lose weight with Censor, it should be combined with diet and exercise or taken alongside a fat burning supplement and an appetite suppressing supplement. Without science proving that Censor is a proven weight loss supplement, it’s hard to justify the high price of this supplement and recommend it as a weight loss tool.

The Bottom Line

We do like that the company behind Censor has been around for over a decade, and that the pills are convenient and easy to take anywhere. Unfortunately, we can’t recommend this diet supplement to our readers without published research proving that it is effective for weight loss. We’re also concerned about the bitter aftertaste many reviewers mentioned, the high price, and the side effects ranging from nausea and jitters to an increased risk for diabetes due to the insulin blocking traits of omega oils.
If you’d like to lose weight and keep it off, we suggest you find a product that offers a bang for your buck with an affordable price point and proven results backed by unbiased clinical studies.
Among the best products that we’ve reviewed in 2015 is a diet supplement called Leptigen. Leptigen’s formula is a proprietary blend of just four ingredients, which minimizes side effects. These ingredients have been shown in scientific research to aid in weight loss by boosting metabolic rate and increasing fat burning. Leptigen has also been featured in clinical studies where it outperformed a placebo in a double blind study. Reviews online seem to agree that Leptigen offers safe and effective weight loss without the negative side effects.
Right now the makers of Leptigen are offering a special trial offer to prove to their customers that Leptigen can help them lose weight and meet their fitness goals.

What You Should Know

Censor is a CLA/ Omega 3-6-9 Blend designed by NDS Nutritional Products. A sibling product by NDS Nutrition is Cardio Cuts. CLA is a group of about 13 isomers of linoleic acid that have been suggested to reduce body fat and decrease the body's intake of glucose. Omega oils have been given "qualified health claims" by the FDA that they can benefit people with certain circulatory problems. The product comes in a soft gel pill and two should be taken three times a day. They are recommended taken on top of a proper diet and along with 30 minutes of exercise a day.


Conjugated Linoleic Acid, Gamma Linoleic Acid, Alpha Linoleic Acid, Eicosapentaenoic Acid, Docosahexaenoic Acid, and Omega 3-6-9 Blend

Product Features

Alpha Linoleic Acid is an omega-3 acid that could possibly reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. It is an essential fat and it is not created in the body. This is ingredient is not unique to Censor as some bodybuilding products, namely Abdominal Cuts, contain it. It is important to supplement this fat, especially if you are eating a low calorie/low fat diet. Eicosapentaenoic acid is also an omega-3 fatty acid that can be found in fish. It has great clinical significance pertaining to lowering inflammation. Docosahexaenoic Acid is in the same class as ALA and EPA yet is well known for treating Alzheimer's disease, colon cancer and improving eyesight and attentiveness in pregnant women. This is an interesting direction to go in; Censor's sister product Intensify Capsules work in stimulating metabolism. Conjugated Linoleic Acid has been recommended as an antioxidant and anti-cancer booster. Some studies suggest it can reduce body fat. The concern over this fatty acid is that it may cause insulin resistance, putting you at the risk of getting diabetes. These omega acids are derived from safflower oil, fish oil, flaxseed oil, evening primrose oil, and borage oil.

  • Contains essential fatty acids come in soft gels and can be purchased straight from NDS.


  • Lacks proof that its ingredients are pure.
  • Lacks clinical studies suggesting its ingredients relate to weight loss.
  • Expensive ($50 per 90 capsules) compared to other fish oil supplements.
  • Lacks any guarantees or customer testimonials.


Omega 3 fatty acids, like those in Omega Slim Essential Fatty Acids, are an essential part of a balanced diet. They are typical extracted from foods like fish, eggs and even algae. Taking Censor on top of a thermogenic supplement and an appetite-suppressing supplement would be a good idea considering its health benefits involving cardiovascular strength. Censor is a fat blocker like Tonalin Cla. However, this product is rather expensive when compared to fish oil supplements that offer the same benefits. Also, before buying any products with CLA or Omega-3 acids, think about how they can be found in many foods already part of your everyday diet.

    Hey, Aurelia. No dieters have reported liver problems concerning this product. As always, however, for dieters with conditions it’s best to consult you doctor first.

    Stephen (Editor)

    Typically, Ashely, it takes roughly a month to see results you want from any diet. Give or take a few days.

    I have been taking Censor 2 in the morning, 2 in the evening, a protein shake (1% milk) for breakfast (Muscle Milk Powder) then a banana and a Cliff Bar at 10:30 AM, a protein lunch of chicken, vegetables and rice and pretty much eliminated bread and pasta from my diet. If I eat a dinner it’s the same deal. No snacks, ice cream or cheating-takes resolve. I exercise daily with a mile or two walk and I do a strenuous routine lifting relatively light reps of 20lb. weights. In less than a month I have dropped 2″ off my waist and lost 14 lbs. (from 192 to 178) I think I can lose at least 2 more inches off my waist, add muscle and lose another 8-10 with little trouble. I have more energy and I don’t need to sleep 8-10 hours like I used to. My snoring has been reduced and my CBC/Cholesterol are all down 20 points and my average is well within guidelines for reduced risk of Heart attack! Don’t expect immediate results…takes some time for your body to adjust to the new routine. I have found no side effects (no loose bowels, gas or bad taste/breath like so many supplements produce). I’m a fan!!!

    Censor is great! I have been only taking it two times a day and have already lost 57 pounds! Due to injuries I have done this without little exercise and just watching what I eat. This product is amazing! I’ve now started taking it 3 times a day and am adding Intensify Xtreme so I hope to achieve even more results!
