Lipo-6 is one of the longest lasting fat burning supplements on the market. The product costs are far too high for the ingredients listed. The caffeine amounts paired with the Yohimbine can result in life threatening side effects for some people. The product label does not say for men only, but there is a “for her” version with less caffeine and added natural supplements aimed at overall female health. The product does include some great fat burning and calorie burning boosters, but this product is not for everyone especially people under the age of 18, women who may be pregnant, women who are nursing, people with high blood pressure, people with anxiety issues, people with mental illnesses or conditions and many others.
