Lipothin Review - Does This Fat Burner Really Work? Are unproven ingredients and negative user reviews deal breakers?

Editor's Review: 3.1 / 5.0
Lipothin Review

I paused before I hit the “publish” button on this one, because my conclusion on LipoThin was a bit of a shocker. We took the time to create a comprehensive review, examining the ingredients, side effects, customer care and scientific research. Also, we sorted through hundreds of user experiences and responses we found on the internet. At this point we compacted all the facts to give you the information you need.

EDITOR'S TIP: Combine Lipothin with a proven fat burner such as Leptigen for better results.

What is Lipothin?

To start, LipoThin is boasted as a “maximum strength” product made by Nature’s Science. Put simply, this supplement is claimed to assist with effective weight-loss. It is directed to be taken twice a day, three capsules 30 minutes before meals. It’s important to consume at least eight ounces of water with each dose. The core ingredient found in this product is Glucomannan Tuber (1,500mg), which is a form of fiber that comes from Konjac Root.

We are unsure when LipoThin was initially released, but it’s available via online stores such as drugstore.com. Also, this product does contain a natural key ingredient and it may help with regularity, but read on…

Unproven Ingredient – “A Consideration?”

First off, the LipoThin ingredient is not something that has been proven, without a doubt, to aid with weight-loss. According to our Research Editor, “It contains Glucomannan Tuber, which is basically just a form of dietary fiber. While this ingredient may help with more regular bowel movements, it has not been proven to assist with fat loss or weight reduction.”

One user said, “Did not help me lose any weight. I took the whole bottle and nothing.”

“This pill does not boost your metabolism and I can’t see any real weight-loss results. I want a refund,” commented another customer.

A Lot of Negative User Reviews

There are plenty of negative customer reviews posted online regarding LipoThin. One dieter stated, “Get ready for some serious gas and abdominal pains.”

Another customer mentioned, “I didn’t care for LipoThin. It gave me a headache and gas.”

According to our research, if there is a certain part of a weight-loss pill or diet program that is especially concerning or bothersome (unproven ingredient, negative user
reviews, steep price tag) the likelihood of lasting results is slim. So, if LipoThin does in fact cause a lot of negative customer reviews, this could be a serious issue.

Any Actual Science?

Sadly there is no published clinical research presented with LipoThin. This makes it difficult to determine how effective this weight-loss product actually is. At DietSpotlight, we prefer to see some actual science that supports the diet product and the ingredients it uses.

The Bottom Line – Does LipoThin Work?

So, should you buy LipoThin? Well, we like that LipoThin contains a natural key ingredient and this product is easy to acquire online. On the other hand, we are leery of this supplement because it’s not backed by any real science when it comes to weight-loss. Also, we’re concerned about the negative customer reviews posted on the web. Some users even reported side effects.

If you’d like to shed more pounds of fat, we encourage you to select a product that contains clinically tested ingredients, does not cause many adverse effects and is supported by positive user reviews.

Among the best products we’ve seen in 2016 is one called Leptigen. Its formula is a unique blend of four important ingredients, which have been shown in documented clinical testing to help speed up fat loss and boost metabolism. Furthermore, we can’t find any talk of unpleasant side effects and user comments posted on the internet express people are seeing great results.

The makers of Leptigen are so positive about their product they’re offering a Special Trial Offer, which is uncommon.

What You Should Know

The manufacturers of Lipothin say that this weight loss product will help you lose weight by increasing your heart rate, suppressing your appetite and by greatly accelerating the burning of fat in your body. They say that Lipothin is a thermogenic fat burner that will attack fat cells, and melt away excess fat by converting it into pure energy.


The ingredients in Lipothin consist of: Magnesium, Chromium,
Selenium, Betaine, Choline Bibartrate,Inositol,L-Methionine,Siberian Ginseng,Guarana Seed,L-Carnitine,Ginger Root,Gotu Kola,Damiana Leaf,Nettle Leaf, Sarsaparilla Root and peppermint leaf.

Product Features

There is no official website for Lipothin, but you can order it online for the price of $19.99 for sixty capsules. The manufacturers tell us that you should not exceed more than six capsules daily and that when taking Lipothin, and that you should drink at least six glasses of water in between your meals. However, more specific usage instructions are not given.

The ingredients in Lipothin are similar to the ingredients in other weight loss products. This supplement contains L-Carnitine, which is an amino acid produced by the liver and kidneys. It's no surprise seeing L-Carnitine in Lipothin, because it is becoming a very popular ingredient in weight loss supplements. However, weight loss experts say of L-Carnitine that there has not yet been enough research carried out on it to give a definitive conclusion on any weight loss properties it may have. Siberian Ginseng which is a stimulant that is also present in Lipothin, is another common ingredient in weight loss products. In fact, there are a number of stimulants in Lipothin, so it may make you feel rather jittery and you may want to cut down on the amount of coffee that you drink in a day. Sarsaparilla root, which is present in Lipothin, is found in Peru and helps to stimulate the metabolism and helps aid digestion. Lipothin also contains nettle leaf which is a diuretic. The manufacturers of Lipothin say that it will increase your heart rate (with all of those stimulants this is no surprise!) so those who have any kind of heart problems should not use this product.

    I feel sorry for everyone that got scamed into this so call 14 day trial. the trial begins the day you fill out order,not when it was shipped or recieved. Your best bet to get out of paying the full price from this trial is to call and they are to ask you three questions about wanting more. If you pick the first question which is where Tad the name of the guy that helped me I ended up having half of the cost and MAKE SURE YOU GET A LETTER OF CANCELATION WHICH I RECIEVED THROUGH EMAIL WITH IN MINUTES OF DOING THIS. I checked my account and I had half of the money put back within a day. I called my card holder and complained they took my information and they are looking into this and if they find any “hanky panky” 🙂 they will be able to get my money back. This could take up to six weeks. The thing you need to do ASAP call and get it cancelled.



    This is a total ripoff comapny! Products do not work and this is not a FREE trial it is a scam to charge you $89.41 for the Lypothin and $82.61 for the Active Cleanse. The paperwork that comes with the product states you should call them within your and day trail period if it day trial period if it is not working for you and then you have to return the unused product at your expense they will give you an RMA# that must be part of the return to prevent getting charged. Not worth the hassle to even try. Use a product you can buy to at the store.



    I too got ripped off from this so called company. I thought i was getting a 14 day free trial, on a product which didn’t work, only to have my debit card charged for $89.41 plus $2.68 shipping. I am going to change my debit card since i can’t get through to this place.

    please stop automatic shipments and credit my account of $89.41…cannot afford and did not work.

    I ordered the product Lypothin, when I took the product it upset my stomach. So I called the company, there is a reason Lypothin doesn’t have a web site its a total scam! Read the fine print the trial period starts when you order the product, NOT when you receive it. At $89.00 a bottle it was very disappointing, still agrueing with the company about my refund!



    They don’t give you a full 14 days to review the product so this is a clear breach of contract that you should be legally entitled to a refund since there is no contract in effect.


  • 11

    Do not buy this product. They hide the fact that they are going to charge you $89 if you do not return the 14 day trial. Then after that they charge you $89 for automatic refills. Customer Service Department can’t do anything to resolve your issue but cancel your next months shipment. I paid about $160 for something that doesn’t even work.



    I agree….this is a total marketing scam and should be reported to the media. There are many trial offers out there doing similar shady deals with the public. They did the same to me. I sent mine back and it didnt work anyhow


  • 12

    Product may work for some, but their business practices are AWFUL!!! Offer free trial, then send more than needed, then want $45.00 for balance of pills. To cancel you have no choice but to send back the bottle (it can be empty) within the trial period. Must get RMA which they will argue about and tell you to send the product back.

    I am a type 1 diabetic, and want to know if this is a safe drug for someone like me. Also I have a son who is 16, and is 5″11 and 237 lbs. would this be a safe drug for him? He has no health problems.

    The label on the container is printed very poorly. i can hardly make out what it says, it’s very blurry. I took 2 of the pills with a Power Bar and a glass of flavored (Crystal Light) water. I also had some coffee before this. I skin got a burning sensation (like as if i scaped against poison ivy or something) then my arms got very red and blotchy first, then my face. It dissapeared in about 2 hours. Was this caused by the LipoThin? I have no other allergies. I have never had any reactions like this with any other product. Can i get my money back?



    Sounds like a niacin reaction to me.



    Yes that is a niacin flush. I take the niacin that makes you flush, and I take it daily. It cleans plaque from the arteries. My husband’s cardiologist said that the time released niacin and flush free niacin does not work, and you’re just flushing your money down the toilet when you buy the others. It does take a bit getting use to the niacin flush feeling. But when I don’t feel the flush feeling I know I have lots of plaque build up. So yes that is a flush feeling. There are a couple herbs that will do that to you-niacin is just one. If you were allergic to one of the ingredients your body would swell up, labored breathing etc.


    deborah thibodeaux

    Apparently a reaction/allergy or just too strong for some people. Guarana is very danderous when mixed with coffee or other stimulants, I know of a meth type reaction when taken with strong coffee resulting in permanent brain damage and phychosis with hospitalization for sensitive individuals; and guarana is on herbal warning list. Now that I know ingredients with other stimulants, I will cancel my trial order as of 1-22-13. I WILL NOT EVEN TRY THIS RISKY PRODUCT!!!!!!!!



    you are wrong in your above statement. I have been in the nursing field for 35yrs. Now if a person has a history of cardiac problems they are told not to use this product. If you have questions you should contact your doctor not reading what the problem could be or might not be-better to ask your doctor.



    I ordered the trial bottle of this stuff and was charged 90 bucks for it and yesterday another charge came through for another charge of 96.00!! How do I get ahold of this company and cancel this so they dont keep taking my money without my permission. Can someone please help me??



    Just change your credit card… and they wont be able to charge you anymore



    I also have the same problem with this company. I haven’t been receiving the product and yet keep getting charged. I can’t get hold of the company. How do we go in cancellation of the .
