What You Should Know
Eclipse Lipodize is a dietary supplement that claims to speed up thermogenic processes and eliminate appetite through a blend of phosphates and Guggulsterones, which is claimed to be the key to weight loss. It does not contain typical weight loss ingredients, such as Green Tea or Guarana, and does not contain any harsh stimulants, such as the dangerous ingredient Ephedrine. Very few benefits are listed, however, and appears to be only marketed as a thermogenic booster. It is cheaper than most thermogenic boosters, also — one 120ct bottle sells for $12.95.
Although it claims to be a “revolutionary” non-stimulant product, its ingredients may not contain the type of benefits wanted in a thermogenic product (at least none proven by science). One ingredient might, however.
Eclipse Lipodize contains Calcium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Sodium, Phosphate Complex (Calcium Phosphate, Potassium Phosphate, Sodium Phosphate), Jojoba, Ashwagandha, Allyl-Garlic Extract, Ginger, Capsaicin, Guggulsterone Extract, Dicalcium Phosphate, Magnesium Stearate, and Microcrystalline Cellulose. It does not appear to contain any soy or wheat derivatives.
Lipodize Eclipse’s main ingredient is Guggulsterone, a mysterious and controversial ingredient uncommonly used in dietary supplements. This extract, most commonly used in Ayurvedic medicine, was recently cleared for safe use by diet companies due to a study conducted on the ingredient, showing that the chemicals in Guggulsterone activated metabolic production in the thyroid. Although it did not appear to be a significant amount (or at least enough to be considered more effective than Hoodia or Ephedra), this has not stopped diet companies from claiming it can cure obesity.
The concern here is the abuse of Guggulsterone, which is an issue if dieters regularly take diet supplements infused with this extract. The line between safe and unsafe Guggulsterone consumption is very thin, and numerous side effects may result from abuse, including diarrhea, anorexia (loss of appetite), and nausea. It may also adversely affect the heart. Therefore the use of Guggulsterone may not actually be safe, and dieters are advised to speak with a physician before taking any supplement that contains Guggulsterone.
- Contains Guggulsterone, which is shown to positively affect the thyroid.
- Is very affordable; one bottle only costs $12.95.

Eclipse Lipodize is a suitable product for those on a budget; it may not suit those who want a proven product with reputable ingredients, however. Guggulsterone is a dangerous ingredient as well, and dieters are advised to speak with a physician about the safety of this product before implementing it into any diet regimen.
