Species Nutrition Review
What You Should Know
Species Nutrition is a supplement company specializing in fitness and fat burning supplements. Among the available categories are protein supplements, fat burners, carbohydrate supplements and herbal diuretics. These categories are generally the same across all fitness supplement websites. Species Nutrition formulates two fat burners that could be of use to the dieter – Somalyze and Lipolyze.
List of Ingredients
Somalyze: Vitamin E, GABA, Propionyl-L-Carnitine, Phosphatidyl Choline / Phosphatidylethanolamine, Usnic Acid and Melatonin.
Lipolyze: Vitamin E, Propionyl-L-Carnitine, Green Tea Extract, Usnic Acid, Guggulsterone and Guggulsterone E and C-Amp.
Aqualyze: Vitamin B6, Potassium, Uva Ursi Extract and Dandelion Root Extract.
Somalyze by Species Nutrition is a nighttime fat burner that claims to increase weight loss at night. These supplements cannot include fat burners because fat burning ingredients tend to be stimulants. Stimulants would prevent a healthy night’s sleep. The active ingredient in Somalyze is Usnic Acid. The acid is supposed to aid in energy creation on a cellular level requiring the body to use up extra calories during sleep. Usnic acid has been linked to severe hepatoxicity at levels of just 300 mg per day. Somalyze, when taken with Lipolyze contributes a daily intake of 48 mg of Usnic Acid. While this is lower than the toxic amount, people with impaired liver function could see harmful side effects at lower levels.
Lipolyze contains the same Usnic Acid with the addition of Green Tea Extract and Guggulsterones. Guggulsterones have been linked to fat loss and increased thyroid function. While claims can easily be found about these ingredients, clinical trial supporting the claims are not as easily found. Green Tea Extract, however, is a wonderful weight loss ingredient that can be found in proven supplements that truly work.
Aqualyze is a diuretic that helps to reduce water between the muscle and skin. This can give a bodybuilder that ripped effect they need for competition. Dieters will not see much benefit from diuretics aside from making more trips to the bathroom.
None of the Species Nutrition supplements are formulated with ingredients that will definitely increase weight loss and that is what every dieter is looking for – proven weight loss. At the price of $45.00 per Lipolyze and Somalyze and $19.99 for Aqualyze, Species Nutrition charges more than comparable supplements.
- Ingredients are listed online.
- Consumers can buy from the Species Nutrition website.
- Green tea extract works to increase weight loss.
- Somalyze and Lipolyze include Usnic Acid which can lead to liver problems.

Species Nutrition may offer great stacking supplements for bodybuilders, but people trying to lose weight may want to choose another company. The fat burning supplements and diuretics are not proven to work effectively.
