Lipo-6 Hers Review - Does This Supplement Work? Is the lack of clinical proof a deal breaker?

Lipo-6 Hers Review

We’ve seen some promising information about Lipo 6 Hers and decided to take a look a thorough look at the company website, ingredients, and consumer reviews to bring you all of the most important information available about the product.

EDITOR'S TIP: Substitute Lipo-6 Hers with a proven fat burner such as Leptigen for better results.

What You Need to Know

The most important thing you need to know is that this is a supplement that focuses on thermogenesis. Thermogenesis is simply the process of the body generating heat and increasing metabolism, which allows fat to be burned more quickly.

This product originally contained ephedra, which was effective but problematic, and has been replaced with a related substance that hasn’t been banned by the FDA. It’s also formulated for women, reportedly targeting women’s fat zones more effectively, but read on…

Multi-Phase?

The product claims to be multi-phase. This is generally a good attribute because it indicates that the outer portion of the pill will be absorbed quickly and the inner portion at a slower pace. This is great for products you take once a day because the effects last all day. However, the recommended dose is to take up to four pills, which is significantly more than most products supporting increased thermogenesis.

“There doesn’t seem to be a benefit to the multi-phase claim, considering the frequency of doses.” said our Research Editor.

Scroll below for one of the best products we’ve seen over the last year.

Ingredients

There are many common fat burning ingredients listed, however, the exact amounts are not given. Ingredients include B-phenylethylamine HCL, methylsynephrine HCL, synephrine HCL, caffeine anhydrous, hoodia gordonii, yohimbine HCL, folic Acid, biotin, sesame seed oil, gelatin, mixed tocopherols, FD&C Red #3, FD&C Red #40, FD&C Blue #1, and titanium dioxide.

Synephrine, B-phenylethylamine, and methylsynephine are mood enhancers and appetite suppressants, similar to the banned ephedra. Hoodia gordonii, while effective, doesn’t appear to be used in sufficient quantities to cause the desired outcome.

The Science

Lip 6 Hers does contain ingredients that are recognized as triggering theromgenic responses. However, there is no statistical evidence supporting the combination found in the product is effective. It is unclear that there sufficient quantities of the key ingredients to produce the desired effect.

The Bottom Line

We looked at Lipo 6 Hers because of the promising thermogenesis claims as well as the unusual multi-phase design. After examining the product and reviews, we’ve concluded that while there are much worse products on the market, there are much better products available.

The best weight loss supplements are clinically tested long before being offered to consumers and the results of those tests are readily available for review. Lipo-6 Hers does not provide any evidence, nor does it provide customer testimonials.

One of the best products we’ve seen is Leptigen. It’s made with clinically proven ingredients known for their weight loss properties. After exhaustive research, we weren’t able to find consumer reviews that were unhappy with the product, which suggests dieters are satisfied with their results.

The makers of Leptigen are fully confident in their product. They are giving new customers a special trial offer, which we find reassuring.

How Does Lipo-6 Hers Compare?

What You Should Know

Click Here To See Our Highest Rated Review

Lipo-6 Hers focuses its weight loss efforts on thermogenesis. Thermogenesis is a process in the body that generates heat, increases metabolism and breaks down adipose (fat) tissue. One of the original six ingredients in Lipo-6 Hers, ephedra, has been banned by the FDA and has been replaced in this formulation by a related legal ingredient. Lipo-6 Hers is specifically formulated for women, according to the official website, and works on fat zones more commonly experienced by women such as hips, abdomen, and the back of the arms.

Lipo-6 Hers also bills itself as a "multi-phase" pill. It is essentially a pill within a pill so that the interior ingredients will not be absorbed by the body as quickly as the exterior ones. We found this confusing as most products designed like this are long-acting whereas the directions advise to take 4 Lipo-6 Hers pills a day, up to twice as many as other products.

The Lipo-6 website is not particularly informative. Although it contains a page outlining the purpose of each ingredient, it does not have any links to clinical research supporting the effectiveness of the product or its ingredients. On the "Science" page, there is a picture of a doctor with a testimonial. We like to see customer testimonials on diet product websites as these help consumers decide if the product may work for them. Lipo-6 Hers has a page for testimonials but there are none currently listed. Lipo-6 Hers can be purchased directly from the website and from several large retailers and pharmacies. They offer a 30-day money-back guarantee but only on product purchased directly from them over the Internet, not that purchased in stores.

Ingredients

B-phenylethylamine HCL, methylsynephrine HCL, synephrine HCL, caffeine anhydrous, hoodia gordonii, yohimbine HCL, folic Acid, biotin, sesame seed oil, gelatin, mixed tocopherols, FD&C Red #3, FD&C Red #40, FD&C Blue #1, and titanium dioxide.

Product Features

Lipo-6 Hers contains some common weight loss aids that may assist in the fat-burning process. Caffeine in particular has been clinically-proven to trigger a thermogenic response, thereby increasing metabolism in most people. Synephrine, methylsynephine and B-phenylethylamine are appetite suppressants and mood enhancers, much like the now-banned ephedra. The hoodia gordonii included in the Lipo-6 Hers formula does not appear to be present in high enough quantities to make a difference.

Advantages

  • Contains ingredients known to trigger a thermogenic response.
  • Money-back guarantee offered for those who purchased directly from the company.

Disadvantages

  • No money-back guarantee when purchased in stores.
  • No links to clinical testing supporting the effectiveness of the product or its ingredients.

Conclusion

We do like the focus Lipo-6 Hers puts on thermogenesis and the unique multi-phase design. However, even though we feel you could do a lot worse than Lipo-6 Hers, we feel you could also do better. The highest-rated weight loss products are thoroughly clinically tested before being brought to market and provide details of the testing on their websites. Lipo-6 Hers does not provide any clinical information, nor does it have any customer testimonials. Consumers may wish to continue their search for a quality weight loss aid backed by a company that stands behind its product.

    I have started taking Lipo 6 for Women about 4 days ago, and i feel more tired that awake. I take the 1 in morning and 1 in afternoon. I walk everyday, but instead of being active more I am tired and lazy feeling. I do take Bipolar and depression medication (Celexa and Lamacil) which my Dr says is okay. Does it take awhile to have a positive effect or what?

    I bought the regular (white box, purple writing) Lipo 6 Hers yesterday as the sales guy was a stand-in and could not advise between the regular, black and concentrate
    I took one capsule at 6am. It is now 8am – I have had a cup of filter coffee with milk no sugar. Lost 13.1kg since end August 2012 but weight is now steady and I need to loose another 8 to get to goal. Thought maybe a fatburner will help. Do not feel any effect at the moment at all. I do drink alot of coffee so maybe I am immune to the caffeine. I have not eaten this morning yet! I watch my calories and my carbs and eat before 7pm
    I exercise moderately for about 20min after work at home doing some rebound jumping and cardio exercise – nothing to extreme. We have visitors at the moment and exercising is now kinda out of the question for the next few days!
    Just holding thumbs that I did not throw R400 odd in the water and that this pill will work – will maybe have 2 capsules tomorrow one in the am and one at about 12 or 1 pm ….

    Do NOT take these if you dont have atleast 20 pounds to lose. I am 21 years old, 5’8″ and 130lbs and took these for a month. I haven’t lost any weight, maybe one or two pounds but ended up at the hospital yesterday during my vacation. I never had a problem with anxiety until I started taking these and what I felt yesterday is NOT worth taking these pills. I was panicky to the point I needed to be given sedatives and felt like I was going to feint with the most severe anxiety I have ever felt.

    Bottom line is, at first I felt okay and had only a little bit of anxiety that came in waves but after a month of using it (yesterday) I literally thought I was going to have a heart attack and die. I do not recommend this pill.

    Lipo 6 for hers was the first diet supplement I ever tried to loose weight. I am very picky about pills, etc. I’m 20 yrs and weigh 130 lbs. I was scared at first but after A LOT of research and reviews I went through, I decided to give it a shot. Even with the bad reviews and horrible side effects I decided to try it. I bought 120ct. After a week of using it, decided to quit immediately. I don’t want to scare you. This pill works different for everyone. I started 2 pills a day, then move up to 3, and 4, and stayed with 4 a day. 2 in the morning, 2 in the afternoon. The “afternoon” dose I took it at 11am-12pm because I couldn’ sleep if taken later. This didn’t work, I couldn’t sleep for 1 week even taking it at 11a, but still kept trying because hopefully my body would adjust to the caffeine. Fine. After 5 days of using it, my stool turned dark green, and at last, it was with blood, seemed like if I was on my period. Overall, tried for a week, couldn’t stand the caffeine and couldn’t fall or stay asleep. Went to the gym and sweat a lot, and I feel lighter now. My appetite was suppressed. My advise is to be careful. Do not try taking 6 in one day as stated because I tried that and almost passed out. Lipo-6 for her can work for you, but my advise is be careful, investigate first, and remember that your body and health is very important and does not always react to supplements in a positive way. Good luck!!!

    People read this:

    Don’t take Lipo 6 after 5pm, if that 4pm. If you do, take a light doses. It won’t keep you up, and it shouldn’t keep you up as long as you are working out. Drink lots of water, and I mean LOTS. I drink at least 3L a day. It’s helped a lot. Don’t eat when your heart rate is racing, because you will just throw it up.

    I’ve lost 13+ lbs on this pill, and love it. It has gotten me back on my feet, and gotten me out of my depression because I get out and do stuff again. 🙂

    I like to take Lipo 6 Hers when I’m PMSing, because it keeps me from bloating and it prevents me from binging on junk food due to cravings. (The pills suppress your appetite.)

    I am very sensitive to caffeine, which is why I only take 2 pills in the morning. I noticed that when I take it in the early afternoon I’m unable to go to sleep.

    This isn’t a miracle pill, but if you have issues with your diet, I would recommend it. By taking away your hunger, you’re able to make healthier food choices.

    I have been taking lipo 6 now for a couple of weeks and I LOVE IT. It gives me the perfect amount of energy to get through my workout. I can run forever without feeling tired. It gives me that little boost of energy that makes my workout feel like its actually working. Not only does it make me feel good but Im starting to even look good. It makes me happy. It does not make me sick or gittery just as long as I dont take three in a row. I take one in the Morning and one right at noon. But I recommend this product because it works just need Lipo 6, a workout plan, and a healthy diet to get you looking even better!

There is a word called TRAINING!!!

    Don’t take this product. I have already missed 3 days of work, and may miss more….long story short, my adrenal glands are all messed up from the combination of stimulants, I am dehydrated, and cannot even walk through my house without becoming fatigued. I am now having to wean myself off of these pills under the care of my doctor, because my body is going through withdrawel.
