What You Should Know
The official website for Liporidex lists the supplement as safe and effective. Many of the ingredients on the list are safe and some are even proven to increase weight loss, but others are far from safe. With multiple stimulants and a touch of mood boosting chocolate (PEA), Liporidex offers a bigger punch than the description allows.
The official website offers direct ordering, contact information and information on the doctor who created the Liporidex formula. Dr. Emeka Okwuje cured a rare skin disorder with natural anti-oxidants and soon delved into weight loss remedies. He specializes in anesthesiology and has no official training in nutrition or weight loss.
List of Ingredients
CLA, Mucuna Pruriens, Phenylethylamine, Green Tea, Bitter Orange Extract, Cayenne Pepper, Soy Isoflavones, Chromium, L-Dopa and PEA.
The ingredient list for any product offers a snapshot of how the body will react. The main ingredient in Liporidex is CLA, or conjugated linoleic acid. CLA was once a popular lean muscle builder that was marketed as having unreal fat loss abilities. When science could not prove this fat loss in humans, CLA lost a bit of ground.
Mucuna Pruriens is a mood altering bean that is commonly sold as an alternative to coffee. Marketed as a sexual aid, we can only guess the improved mood associated with this bean is the reason for adding it. Phenylethylamine is another mood altering ingredient with slightly stimulant properties. Phenylethylamine is included twice on the ingredient list, which is a bit odd. Green tea, the best ingredient in Liporidex, is proven to increase metabolism.
Bitter Orange extract is commonly referred to as Citrus Aurantium or synephrine. This cousin to Ephedra is a strong stimulant that can carry a risk of high blood pressure and increased heart rate. There have been reports of people being hospitalized from taking too much synephrine.
Cayenne pepper is another good ingredient. Several studies have linked cayenne pepper to increased fat burn and metabolism. We also like the fact that Chromium is used in the Liporidex formula. Liporidex sells for $49.99 per bottle.
- Green tea, chromium and cayenne are proven ingredients.
- The price is comparable to other fat burners.
- Bitter Orange Extract can cause unhealthy side effects.
- PEA, a mood enhancer or psychoactive ingredient, is listed twice.
Liporidex is one of the better supplements we have reviewed in a while. There are several proven ingredients and even some mood boosters to help the dieter feel better about sticking to a weight loss plan. However, mood stabilizers are not safe for everyone. We also dislike the addition of synephrine which can cause jitters and shakes, increased blood pressure and increased heart rate potentially leading to a stimulant crash.
