What You Should Know
Leptilean is a weight loss supplement by Advocare that supports a feeling of fullness while boosting metabolism to increase weight loss. There are many products on the market making these claims and the ingredient list always tells the true story. We do know from a quick look at the ingredient list that EGCG is the only proven weight loss ingredient in the supplement. That is a negative from the start.
The official website for Leptilean from Advocare sells the product directly for $45.95 per 30-day supply. We found customer service contact information, but there are no testimonials listed in the product description.
List of Ingredients
Vitamin A, Biotin, LeptiCore, Naringin Extract, PhosphoLean, N-Oleoyl-PE and EGCG and Cat’s Claw Bark.
LeptiCore is not described in detail on the Leptilean website, but we found an official website for the ingredient. According to that product description, Leptilean supports healthy leptin levels with plant polysaccharides, beta-carotene and algae. This is the ingredient that reduces hunger, according to the LeptiCore website. Several clinical studies are listed to support LeptiCore claims, but all of the studies support leptin not LeptiCore.
Naringin is found in grapefruits. This substance is what causes grapefruits to have a bitter flavor. It is listed as a common sweetener not a weight loss product. PhosphoLean is another branded ingredient with a brief explanation on the official website. PhosphoLean is the source of EGCG. EGCG is proven to increase metabolism, but we have no idea how much EGCG the ingredient supplies. Cat’s claw is used as a natural immune booster. We found no evidence that this ingredient will boost weight loss or metabolism.
The ingredient list for Leptilean lacks support from clinically proven ingredients. We like the fact that Advocare includes a source of EGCG, but why that source is a branded ingredient and not green tea we have no idea. There is no evidence that this product will increase leptin levels, reduce appetite or boost metabolism enough to spark weight loss.
- All ingredients are found on the official website.
- EGCG is proven to boost metabolism.
- The price is comparable to other fat burners and appetite suppressants.
- Only one ingredient is proven to have an effect on weight loss.
- Two ingredients are branded with specific ingredients never revealed.
Leptilean is just a letdown from all sides. The ingredient list does not support weight loss claims. LeptiCore uses leptin research to support ingredient effects and no testimonials are available on any site related to this product. Dieters would likely see a better benefit from taking a green tea supplement every day and drinking strong coffee.
