Metabo Up Review - Does This Weight-Loss Supplement Work? Are side effects and ineffectiveness deal breakers?

Editor's Review: 3.2 / 5.0
Metabo Up Review

In the diet industry, don’t mistake marketing for effectiveness. People are intrigued by Metabo Up, so we focused on ingredients, side effects, clinical studies and customer relations. Additionally, we investigated user comments and reviews. We then summarized and condensed to give you the info you need.

EDITOR'S TIP: Substitute Metabo Up with a proven fat burner such as Leptigen for better results.

What You Need to Know

First off, the Metabo Up ingredients include green tea, guarana seed, caffeine, oolong tea leaf, kola nut extract, cayenne fruit and B-vitamins. When you take two capsules, once per day, the company states the product will help you lose more weight. You can take the pills anywhere you go, a positive.

The product was introduced in 2003 by Obesity Research Institute, makers of Lipozene. We noticed that the supplement contains no artificial ingredients, considered a benefit. It is available to purchase on the official website and through various retailers. We do like the money-back guarantee and longevity of the company, but read on…

Side Effects – “Stomach Turning?”

The first thing that could cause an issue is Metabo Up side effects. “Dieters expect increased energy, a boost to metabolism and more from a diet pill,” says our Research Editor. “What they don’t expect is to feel terrible after taking the product.”

“I have had diarrhea most nights with bloating of my stomach,” said one dieter.

“I get bad stomach cramps and diarrhea and no weight loss. I have taken these for 2 months, if anything I have gained weight and a bloated stomach,” offers a consumer.

FDA Rulings – “Problematic?”

Obesity Research Institute was warned by the FDA in March 2014. According to the letter, statements on the official website were more medical than allowed by law. The company was told to remove them and contact the government within 15 days to report the changes.

Class Action Lawsuit – “Another Concern”

Metabo Up has had some legal concerns. In April 2011, the company behind the supplement was involved in a class action lawsuit. The concerns centered on unrealistic weight-loss claims and product effectiveness. A total of $5 million was awarded in the case.

Ineffectiveness – “No Results”

After reviewing forum posts, the same issues came up time and again, Metabo Up doesn’t work. Many dieters have tried it for months and haven’t noticed results. “Over the two month period my wife lost no weight. She may as well have been taking powdered sugar pills,” reported a consumer.

“Didn’t lose a pound and I took it exactly as the directions specified,” stated a user.

“Does nothing at all that I can see. No extra energy, no extra weight loss, NOTHING! Save your $$,” commented a customer.

After extensive research, we found that any part of a diet system seen as problematic, such as ineffectiveness, could hinder long-term success. If Metabo Up does not produce results, there are concerns.

The Science – “What Does Research Say?”

According to the website, the Metabo Up ingredients are “clinically proven,” to boost energy and metabolism. There are some good parts of the formula, but the company doesn’t even bother to list those studies. We found no scientific proof the supplement works to increase weight-loss any better than comparable products. At DietSpotlight, we believe if there’s no science, why would a dieter want to invest any money?

The Bottom Line – Does Metabo Up Work?

Hmmm, our look into Metabo Up was quite interesting, ya know? There are some highlights like the longevity in the industry and a few positive customer comments, but we can’t recommend it because the weight-loss claims aren’t supported by published clinical research. We also have concerns about the FDA judgments and the class action lawsuit.

If you like to rock your best body, we suggest going with a supplement with ingredients backed by published clinical research, that doesn’t cause side effects or worries about legal problems.

Among the best products we’ve seen in 2016 is one called Leptigen. The formula consists of a four-ingredient proprietary blend, shown in published scientific research to ignite fat loss and enhance metabolism. Dieters aren’t talking about negative side effects and reviews around the web report people seeing exceptional results.

Also, the makers of Leptigen are confident enough in their product to provide a Special Trial Offer, which is a good decision.

What You Should Know

There is an official website for the weight loss product Metabo Up which tells us that the ingredients in Metabo Up are made up of a proprietary blend consisting of amino acids, and herbs such as Taurine, Arginine, Ginseng, and Theobromine. The website tells us that these ingredients will work together in Metabo Up to increase a user's metabolism and energy.


The ingredients in Metabo Up consist of a "proprietary blend" containing Taurine, Arginine, Ginseng and Theobromine.

Product Features

The official website for Metabo Up tells us that it comes in a powder stick form. Just like Meta Slim, only without a topical cream and not as expensive! We are told that if you just wish to lose a few pounds then you should mix one stick pack with eight to ten ounces of cold water. Not-so-coincidentally, other metabolism boosters like Ubervita w700 is also taken daily and blended with water. We are further told that if you wish to lose more weight in less time that you should take two sick packs of Metabo Up mixed in water. Each pack of Metabo Up consists of fourteen stick packs. The website gives a telephone number to call if you wish to order this product. Oddly, It cannot be ordered directly from the website, denoting poor service like Meta Boost. The website does not give any details on the price of Metabo Up. There is, however, a 100% money back guarantee if the product is returned within thirty days. It is difficult to undertake a proper assessment of Metabo Up as we are not given details of the exact ingredients in the product, but are only told a few of the ingredients in Metabo Up.

  • There is an official website for the weight loss product Metabo Up.
  • There is a 100% money back guarantee if the product is returned within thirty days.
  • There are details given on the official website including a telephone number for customer service.


  • The official website does not give a full ingredients list, but only lists some of the ingredients that are present in Metabo Up.

  • You cannot order directly from the website but only by telephone.
  • We are not told what differentiates Metabo Up from other similar weight loss products for sale.


Competition amongst the manufacturers of weight loss products is tough. Heck, even competition between types of supplements is high, as Metabolite clearly shows. Consumers are information-hungry, and if there is an official website for a product they expect this website to give details regarding the price of the product and also allow curious, potential consumers to see a full product ingredients list. It's always a let-down when companies don't reveal all active ingredients; It's like Meta Ignite all over again. Unfortunately, the official website for Metabo Up, gives no price details and the information given on the product ingredients is far from satisfactory. It is impossible to make a proper assessment of this product when such essential information is lacking. We cannot therefore at the moment see why Metabo Up should be your pick above other weight loss products for sale.

    Metaboup weight loss guide…pg4. 40/40/20….and then you give meal options, nice. However, the meal options list calories only. If you are serious about people using your product and losing weight wouldn’t it be most advantageous to list protein, carbs and fat per meal options?? Makes sense to me.. ..educate your customers. Am I wrong??

    I have used this product but now I need to know how to continuing getting it. I can find the lipozene tabs at Wal-mart and want to stop getting them but I want to continue the metaboup. Walmart has metabolite and I don’t think it is the same. Please let me know how to get the metaboup



    I bought Metabo up pills at Walmart from makers of Lipozene take 2 daily with 8 oz. of water 60 ct. cost $14.48…I am trying it out cause most pills you have to take up to.6 per day and this one you only take 2 which is a great value!
