What You Should Know
Leptodrene bases its product on the “superfoods” concept. Superfoods are edible botanicals that are high in anti-oxidants and show promise in helping the body purge damaging free radicals and in improving the body’s ability to function. Leptodrene claims not only to help you lose 12 pounds in 7 days, but also to reduce wrinkles and clear up acne. At first glance, it seems unlikely that a single product can have this many benefits but we will assess the Leptodrene formulation below to see if it is possible.
The single-page Leptodrene website is very basic and does not contain very much information for the consumer. The website claims that Leptodrene has fully documented weight loss results but does not provide any further details or links to the results of these studies. The website does provide a complete list of ingredients which we like to see in a quality weight loss aid company, but does not explain the purpose or effects of each ingredient. We often find that consumers wish to know more about what goes in their bodies and how it works and Leptodrene falls down in this area. Leptodrene can be purchased directly from the manufacturer and, at around $30 for a two month supply, it is more affordable than many of its competitors.
According to the Leptodrene website, the ingredients are: Green Tea (50% caffeine), Cayenne Pepper Extract, Acai Extract, Garlic Extract, Barley Extract, Buckwheat Extract, Flaxseed Extract, Lactobacillus Acidophillus, Salmon Oil Powder, Alfalfa Extract, Soybean Extract, Wheatgrass Extract, Alpha Lipoic Acid, DMAE, Idebenone.
All of the ingredients contained in Leptodrene have been clinically-proven to have antioxidant or other beneficial effects on the body. We like to see the inclusion of green tea, as it also has shown great promise as a thermogenic agent. Thermogenesis is a process in the body that increases metabolism and works on breaking down adipose (fat) tissue. We would have been even more impressed with Leptodrene if it contained more thermogenic ingredients.
We do believe that the ingredients in Leptodrene will benefit the body and perhaps boost the immune system and metabolism, both of which will assist uesrs in losing weight. However, all of these ingredients are available as a health supplement, not a weight loss aid. The results are unlikely to be as dramatic as with other proven weight loss aids. The company’s claim of 12 pounds lost in 7 days is not only unlikely, but also potentially dangerous if it was true. Consumers should always check with their doctors before trying to lose weight rapidly. The best weight loss products promise slow steady weight loss that lasts over time. We feel this is a healthier way to take the weight off.
- Contains several “superfood” ingredients.
- Can be purchased directly from the manufacturer.
- Inexpensive compared to competitors.
- No money-back guarantee outlined on website.
- May not contain proven effective weight loss aids.
- Purpose of each ingredient not explained.
- Claims of rapid weight loss unlikely.
While we do appreciate the ingredients in Leptodrene for general health purposes, we prefer weight loss products that target thermogenic responses in the body. Fortunately, there are clinically-proven products on the market today that contain these powerful ingredients manufactured by companies that stand behind their products with a money-back guarantee.
