What You Should Know
Lipored is a new fat burner from Max Muscle the west-coast supplement company with supporters like Jay Cutler. This company is known for pushing the limits of stimulation and formulating exciting supplements with some pretty good science backing them up. Max Muscle is extremely good about listing clinical studies on the product sheets for the supplements they sell, but finding those product sheets can be a bit confusing. We were unable to find a complete ingredient list on Max Muscle or any of the store websites, but we did find the ingredient list online.
List of Ingredients
- Caffeine Anhydrous
- White Willow Bark Extract
- Raspberry Ketones
- Amla Fruit Extract
- Acai Fruit Extract
- African Mango Seed Extract
- N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine
- Yohimbine HCL
The art of the proprietary blend is one Max Muscle knows very well. One of the few complaints we have about the company is the fact that they hide all the ingredient amounts in proprietary blends most of the time. The product description does tell us one serving of Lipored contains 275 of caffeine. That is quite a lot of caffeine – about two to three times the recommended amount per serving. We assume the dieter would take this supplement multiple times a day and that could be way too much caffeine for one day.
There are a couple other stimulants and white willow bark (natural form of aspirin) in the formula as well. This could be a try at an ECA stack derivative, but that’s not a new concept. Lots of companies use ingredients similar to the classic ECA stack as the base of their fat burners, but nothing can replace ephedra.
Acai, amla and African mango are in the new quite often for health and weight loss benefits. These ingredients support overall health and there is some evidence that African mango supports weight loss. There are links to support these ingredients in the product description.
- Contains healthy, well-studied ingredients.
- Contains caffeine to boost metabolism and possibly increase weight loss.
- All ingredients are listed online.
- There is too much caffeine for the average dieter.
- The dieter should limit caffeine intake from other sources.
- The supplement ingredients are listed in a proprietary blend.
Lipored by Max Muscle had a huge amount of press from the company, but we’re not sold on the ingredient list. There is an ECA stack derivative, but the derivative is not as strong as the classic ECA stack despite the 275 mg caffeine punch. We suggest skipping this supplement and trying a product with green tea, caffeine and chromium or other proven appetite suppressant with a reduced calorie diet and workout program.
