Glabrinex is a supplement that claims to reduce visceral fat or fat around the midsection (belly). The official website for Vitamin Research Products, the creators of Glabrinex, lists a research study completed on humans that support their claims of fat loss. Some users may be impressed by the research study, but there are some problems with how the data was collected that could make the results less significant.

List of Ingredients

Licorice Flavonoid Oil.

Product Features

The only ingredient in Glabrinex is licorice flavonoid oil. There are some animal studies out there linking licorice flavonoid oil to weight loss, but all but one has been completed on animals. While this is where most supplement companies start, the effects of supplements and specific ingredients on rodents is not comparable to the effect on humans. Weight gain and weight loss is much more complicated in higher minded species, like humans. Rodents do not typically emotionally eat or go out on a Friday night with friends for drinks and pizza. For this reason, we tend to look for a human study and luckily Glabrinex lists a human-based study for us to peruse.

The human study that is supposed to support the claims of abdominal fat loss made by Glabrinex does nothing but cause more questions. There were no calorie controls used in the study, so the effects of the supplement, reported after the study, are useless. Some of the participants could have significantly reduced caloric intake and that could have caused loss of abdominal fat. On the other hand, the participants could have changed the foods they ate or decided to take up a walk after dinner. These all could have reduced visceral fat.

Vitamin Research Products sells Glabrinex for $49.95. This is far too expensive for a supplement that is not proven to help humans lose belly fat.

Advantages

  • Some animal studies support the claims of lost belly fat.

Disadvantages

  • The price is too high for a supplement that is not proven to work.
  • Animal studies do not mean humans will have the same effect.
  • The human study support Glabrinex lacked control.

Conclusion

Weight loss with all-natural products does not have to be a hit or miss situation. Glabrinex lists a human study so dieters can see the proven effects of the supplement, but the human study did not control caloric intake. Dieters were left free reign to change calorie intake and adjust it for weight loss if they so desired. This means the human study is worthless, but animal studies did show some weight loss and fat loss benefits. It is possible that Glabrinex is a great supplement, but they will have to do more research to prove this to dieters who want proven weight loss ingredients.

    I’m 5′-9″, 178 lbs and have a relatively firm body EXCEPT that I have a 40″ belly. I believe 40+ years of sitting at a desk job caused my gut to “pooch” out … at least that’s my story and I’m sticking to it … lol.

    Anyway, after reading about this product in HSI’s “Miracles from the Vault” I got excited thinking maybe, just maybe this product might actually work. Of course, I read the reviews on this site and others looking for validation of the product and there were many. There were plenty of negative reviews as well but I tended to discount them because I truly wanted to “believe”.

    One day VRP offered a two-for-one sale and allowed you to buy up to 3 – 90 capsule bottles (plus 3 free) for their regular price. I jumped on it and within a week I received my 6 bottles of miracle pills in the mail.

    I read in “Miracles from the Vault” that studies had show belly fat loss with as little as two pills twice a day but that you could take up to nine pills a day. I decided on a regimen of 3 pills twice a day with my morning and evening meals. I stuck to this plan religiously for three months until my pills ran out. I also got into a weight lifting routine of 3 times a week for 30-45 minutes. I did not alter my diet and continued to eat as I had before.

    Well … three months and 540 capsules later I recorded a total weight loss of zero, nada, nilch pounds and reduced my belly size by 1/2″ to 39-1/2″. Of course, I realized about 4 weeks into this process I wasn’t achieving the “reported” belly size losses but I was determined to see this project through hoping that somehow the losses would eventually come.

    They didn’t. Furthermore I believe the 1/2″ reduction is belly size was attributable to my constant weight lifting and not Glabrinex. I have noticed some nice improvements to my chest, arms and legs but nothing for my “beer belly”.

    Please don’t waste your money nor time on this “miracle” cure like I did; Gabrinex, like many other “miracle” products is a total ripoff and was an expensive $150 lesson for me.
