What You Should Know
Lipofire is a fat burning supplement with quite a few stimulating ingredients. The supplement is manufactured by Med-Rx. We could not find an official website for Med-Rx supplements, but several bodybuilding websites sell the supplements. Fat burners typically include stimulants, but when too many stimulants are included on the ingredient list negative side effects like jitters and nausea are more likely to occur. Taking huge amounts of stimulants over a long period may lead to desensitization to the stimulant and addiction.
List of Ingredients
Proprietary Formula: 7-KETO DHEA, Green Tea Extract, Guggul Lipid Extract, Synephrine HCL, Citrus Aurantium, Caffeine, Yohimbine HCL, L-Tyrosine, Bioprene, Chromium Picolinate, cAMP, Hoodia Gordonii, Dandelion Root, Vitamin B12 and Coleus Forskohlii.
Green tea extract is considered a safe and effective weight loss ingredient. We are not given a specific amount of green tea used in the supplement. This could mean there is very little of the ingredient included in the formula. Green tea contains caffeine – a stimulant.
Synephrine is another stimulant. There are no clinical studies proving weight loss benefits of this stimulant. Citrus Aurantium has stimulating effects. It is also a common source of synephrine. Caffeine is the fourth stimulant. While clinical studies supporting using caffeine for weight loss, in Lipofire it simply enhances the stimulating effect.
L-Tyrosine may naturally reduce blood pressure. This ingredient is commonly used in weight loss supplement with stimulants. Stimulants will increase blood pressure causing negative side effects for some dieters.
Chromium picolinate is a natural appetite suppressant. Clinical studies support blood glucose control with chromium. Controlling blood glucose helps control hunger. Hoodia is also an appetite-suppressing ingredient but there are no clinical studies supporting hunger-curbing effects.
Dandelion root is a natural diuretic. Diuretics cause dehydration and potassium loss. They should never be used for weight loss. Some athletes have died using diuretics to slim the body before bodybuilding competitions.
Vitamin B12 is a great source of natural energy. Unfortunately, the body will metabolize vitamin B12 in a short time and expel the rest during urination. There is no long-term energy benefits associated with vitamin B12 and it will not increase metabolism.
Lipofire sells for $40 a bottle.
- Several ingredients are proven to increase weight loss and metabolism.
- The ingredient list was easy to find online.
- Multiple stimulants may cause negative side effects.
- No official website for Lipofire.
Lipofire may contain some proven ingredients, but multiple stimulants packed into one formula are more likely to cause negative side effects like rapid heart rate. While chromium may help control appetite, Hoodia will have no such effect. If the creators of Lipofire slimming down the ingredient list they may have an effective supplement.
