Essential Boost Review - Does This Fat Burner Really Work? Are unproven ingredients and fraudulent credit card charges deal breakers?

Editor's Review: 2.5 / 5.0
Essential Boost Review

No joke- over 50% of diet products simply don’t work. So what about Essential Boost? We at DietSpotlight did one of our in-depth reviews, focusing closely on the ingredients, side effects, customer service and clinical studies. We also scrutinized hundreds of user comments and dieter reviews that are posted online. Lastly, we compacted all of the facts and feedback we found to give you the information you need.

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

What You Need To Know

Essential Boost is a diet supplement that aims to burn off fat, slow down cellular aging, support overall health and boost energy levels. This product should be taken in the morning and at lunch (one caplet is a serving). It contains the following ingredients; Green Tea Extract, Guarana, Panax Ginseng, Vitamin B12, Magnesium, Calcium, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Riboflavin, Vitamin A, Zinc, Vitamin C, Pantothenic Acid, Vitamin E, Iron and Niacin.

From what we gathered, Essential Boost has been available since 2007. This supplement is available on the official website for $9.95 (plus shipping and handling). There is a 30-day satisfaction guarantee posted on the main website, but read on…

Unproven Ingredients – Something to Consider?

According to our Research Editor, “Panax Ginseng and Guarana are two of the key ingredients found in Essential Boost capsules. However, these ingredients are not backed by any real clinical research as effective weight loss aids.”

One customer said, “Didn’t get any weight loss results from Essential Boost. Maybe a slight energy boost.”

“Not sure this product works at all. Still weigh exactly the same after one month,” commented another user.

Fraudulent Credit Card Charges!

Some customers have complained of fraudulent credit card charges after ordering Essential Boost. One customer stated, “Beware buying one bottle of Essential Boost for $9.95. The company hijacks your credit card and enrolls you in a multi-month program for five times what you think you are paying (almost $50). This is fraud, pure and simple–and it’s not even a very good product.”

Another person mentioned, “They charged me again, but for more money! That’s criminal!”

Our intensive research has proven that if there is some certain aspect of a diet supplement or weight loss program that is especially burdensome (unproven ingredients, fraudulent credit card charges, high cost) the odds of prolonged success are not good. Therefore if purchasing Essential Boost does in fact result in a lot of fraudulent credit card charges, this could be problematic.

Any Actual Science?

At DietSpotlight, we need to see solid clinical research that supports the diet product we are reviewing. Sadly, we could not locate any real science to back up Essential Boost and its weight loss claims. No studies or clinical test results are presented on the official Leptigen. This product contains a unique blend of four ingredients, which have been proven in published scientific research to help speed up fat loss and boost metabolism. Furthermore, we can’t find any discussion of harmful side effects and customer comments posted on the web indicate people are seeing excellent results.

The makers of Leptigen are so satisfied with their product they’re offering a Special Trial Offer, which is a good sign.

Product Features

Essential Boost contains safe, natural and powerful energy boosting herbal extracts as part of a revolutionary supplement that adds the benefits of a multivitamin to the fat burning, energy boosting properties of herbs. They use only proven ingredients and no ephedra or ephedra substitutes. Sure, you could just drink green tea, but since the EGCG in green tea is about 1%, and the concentrated green tea extract in Essential Boost is 50%, Essential Boost just makes more sense! Vitamins and minerals are necessary compounds your body cannot make on its own, so they combined them with their formula, adding assets to an already prosperous equation. Just one pill twice a day is all you need!

  • All natural, safe and effective ingredients.
  • Vitamins and minerals are included.
  • All vitamins, minerals and herbs within the Essential Boost formula have been proven effective through clinical studies.


  • No carb or sugar blocker, no fat burner and no appetite suppressant are contained within.
  • This product is much like a drug store diet blend vitamin.
  • EGCG is a stimulant, so intake of caffeine containing products will have to be limited.


If you are just looking to maintain your healthy weight and lose just a minimal amount of weight, this may be just the product you are looking for, but if you have a need for a substantial weight loss, you may need to find a product that contains an appetite suppressant, a fat burner and maybe even a carb/ sugar blocker to help you achieve your goal. The added vitamins and minerals are a wonderful bonus, but they alone are not enough to help you carve out a new "you".

    I am very allergic to caffine-heart attack symptons-does this product contain any caffine?



    there’s absolutely no caffeine in this product. however, for my first few days of taking it, after the second dose around noon, i got a persistent headache until late into the night. They went away by morning, but it was only the first 3 days. Also, my sleep was interrupted..I can only assume these pills affect the sleep-wake cycle, because I would consistently wake up right after the REM period of sleep roughly 3 times a night. It also gave me very vivid dreams, but again, only for the first few days.



    It states on the back of the bottle that it contains caffeine at a level approx. Equal to 1/2 cup of coffee. I would suggest reading EVERYTHING ON THE BOTTLE and make your decision if you would take this product

    i got this vitamin with the easy curves product , i am not interested in losing weight but really toning up. I am currently using Omega 3 fish oiil supplements. Will i be able to take boost and omega together.? As well is it safe for me to take boost as i am very skeptical about meds.

    will this product give me jitters ? and im also someone who experiences heart palpitations when i drink caffine, would this product be harmful for me?



    egcg is a stimulant. It could have detrimential affects on someone with an existing issue with heart palpitations. Herbal supplements like this are not regulated by the FDA so there is a possibility that there may or may not be other things in the supplement that they don’t mention. A pharmacist should be able to provide data on Essential Boost with EGCG. You should consult a doctor before taking any supplements to make sure it’s safe.

    I have noticed some pills are pink and some look green. What’s the difference?

    I started back to weight watchers and they want us to take a vitamin. Will boost work for that?



    Merry, I would not use it as a multi-vitamin. That is what you need. A solid whole foods based multi is great for anyone on a diet. I use a brand called tktlabs. They are web based and it is in dr.’s offices. I usually get it at tktlabsdotcom. The color issue might be from all the dyes that are in the boost. How old are they? I would be a little concerned about the color change. I do think the boost can increase your metabolism though. Good luck!

    once you begin taking essential boost, do you have to take it forever?

    will you gain the weight back?
