What You Should Know
Ghreleptin bills itself as a “natural” weight loss aid and consists of a blend of botanical extracts. The theory behind Ghreleptin is that two hormones, Ghrelin and Leptin, are mainly responsible for weight regulation in the body. According to information retrieved about Ghreleptin, Ghrelin makes you hungry and makes you crave fats and simple carbohydrates. A low level of Leptin is said to tell the brain that you are starving. This decreases your metabolism and causes you to store fat. Ghreleptin is supposed to regulate the body’s levels of both of these hormones to help with losing the weight.
Ghreleptin claims to have an average weight loss amongst its customers of 12 pounds per month which exceeds the doctor-recommended safe weight loss amounts of 1-2 pounds per week.
Ghreleptin can be purchased directly from the manufacturer’s website for around $30 for a 30-day supply. We were unable to locate any information on refunds or money-back guarantees which disappointed us. Money-back guarantees show that a manufacturer believes in its products. There are a few customer testimonials on the website but no case studies or before and after pictures. Although the website alludes to the existence of research showing that these two hormones are responsible for weight regulation, they do not provide detailed information or links to those studies.

Ghreleptin contains no less than 20 ingredients. Consumers may be led to believe that the more ingredients a diet product has, the better it must work, but we frequently find that the opposite is true. Many of the highest-rated weight loss aids have few ingredients that are expertly formulated. Although many of the ingredients in Ghreleptin have proven health benefits, there is little, if any, research to support the fact that they assist in hormone regulation. We would be more impressed by the ingredient list if the company provided clinical proof of this.
- Ghreleptin is said to be all natural.
- Ghreleptin can be purchased directly from the manufacturer’s website.
- Ghreleptin may not contain clinically-proven weight loss ingredients.
- There is no evidence of clinical research on either the product or its ingredients provided.
- No money-back guarantee is offered at this time.
While we like the concept of “natural” diet aids, and they are certainly becoming more popular all the time, we were disappointed in Ghreleptin due to its lack of information and clinical testing as well as the manufacturer’s lack of a money-back guarantee. The price of Ghreleptin is less than many of its competitors but that does not make up for its shortcomings.
