What You Should Know
Lipotone is a weight loss supplement offered by BioCare, a United Kingdom-based company that specializes in a wide range of health products. We were not able to find this product available for sale in the United States. Lipotone is touted as a supplement that can increase the proportion of lean muscle to fat in the body. According to one website that sells the product, dieters can continue to take Lipotone for as long as they need to reach and maintain their weight loss goals. The supplement comes in a package of 28 sachets that are mixed into water or milk and taken before one main meal a day.
Although the product was available for sale through the BioCare website and a number of other European retailers, we were unable to find the product for purchase in the United States. This may be a problem for American consumers who wish to purchase Lipotone. However, residents of the UK will be pleased to see numerous opportunities to purchase Lipotone in their own country. We were pleased to see that the company website provided important information like a complete ingredient list to help consumers make an accurate assessment of the safety and effectiveness of the product.
List of Ingredients
According to the BioCare website, the ingredients in Lipotone include MicroCell CLA-80, L-carnitine, Fructose, Modified Tapioca Starch, Potato Maltodextrin, Conjugated Linoleic Acid, L-Carnitine-L-Tartrate, Garcinia cambogia, Propylene Glycol,, Potassium Citrate, Antioxidants (Ascorbyl Palmitate, Ascorbic Acid & Natural, Mixed Tocopherols1), Natural Vanilla Flavour, Sunflower Oil.
The key ingredients that are highlighted in this formula include CLA, garcinia cambogia and L-carnitine. CLA is an ingredient found in red meats and dairy products and is thought to reduce body fat. However, its effectiveness as a weight loss ingredient is not yet known fully. L-carnitine is also thought to aid in the fat metabolism, although evidence that is assists in weight loss has been less than impressive. Garcinia cambogia is another common weight loss ingredient because it can lower the cholesterol level and may help the conversion of fat to muscle. However, this ingredient is more effective when it is combined with a proven fat burner and appetite suppressant. Neither of these substances appears to be included in the Lipotone formula.
At the time of this review, a 28-day supply of Lipotone sells for £48.89, which is the equivalent of almost 68 US dollars. The company did not offer returns on opened packages of the product.

There are many ingredients that claim to reduce fat in the body, but the most effective tend to be those the burn the fat away more efficiently by boosting the metabolism. In addition, many dieters find that an appetite suppressant is necessary to reduce cravings and portions. Lipotone does not contain either of these, so it may not be the best formula for weight loss.
