Censor is not your grandmother’s supplement. We decided to conduct one of our in-depth reviews, looking at the ingredients, clinical research, side effects, and customer service quality. We also read dozens of online comments to get a general consensus. Then we summarized what we found to give you the info you need.

What You Need to Know About Censor

To start with, Censor has several ingredients that have some positive effects. There are omega oils and linoleic acids that often help with circulatory problems. [1] [2] Censor comes in a soft gel, and 2 tablets are to be taken 3 times daily at meals. NDS recommends taking this on top of a healthy diet and 30 minutes of exercise each day.

NDS Nutrition has been around since 2002, and they have a good reputation for quality products among health supplement companies. Censor is available through the official website, health stores, and online retailers. We like that they have some positive reviews, that the gels are convenient and easy to take, and that the company has some longevity, but read on…

Censor Price – “Too Much for Me”

Our first concern with many products is the price, and Censor was no different. Dieting is not cheap, but with this one it could be too expensive for some. “Censor is only $60 per canister, but with 6 pills per day, it only lasts about 2 weeks,” said our Research Editor. “When you add in shipping and handling, the monthly cost is nearly $150, and there’s no money back guarantee.”

“I liked the ingredients of Censor, but the total cost is way too much for me,” said one user.

“Similar products are available in most drug stores for a small fraction of the cost of Censor,” said another.

Taste – “Not so Great”

Something else that we noticed in several reviews was the taste and aftertaste of the soft gels. “The gels leaked in the bottle and gave the rest of the gels a strong aftertaste,” said one customer online.

“These capsules are low quality; I can taste the ingredients and the bitter flavor lingers,” said another.

Many people agreed with these comments, but some offered advice to minimize the bitter aftertaste: “I took these before my meals so that my meal would cover up the brutal taste of Censor.”

Our research has shown that whenever a diet supplement or workout program has particularly troublesome elements (painful workout routine, bad taste, high cost, negative side effects, etc.), the likelihood of long term success is slim. If Censor really does have a poor flavor that lingers, it could be difficult for dieters to lose weight.

The Science – “Clinically Proven?”

Censor claims to be a proven weight-loss supplement, but they also admit that when taken alone, Censor is not enough to guarantee results. There is some science proving that omega oils and essential fatty acids can be good for heart health, but these are not enough to lose weight without additional help. Without science proving it is effective, it’s hard to justify the high price of this supplement and recommend it.

The Bottom Line – Does Censor Work?

Is it time to go out and pick up some Censor? We do like that the company has been around for over a decade, and that the pills are convenient and easy to take anywhere. Unfortunately, we are hesitant about recommending this diet supplement to our readers without published research proving that it is effective for weight-loss. We’re also concerned about the bitter aftertaste reviewers mentioned, the higher price, and reported side effects ranging from nausea and jitters.

If you’d like to lose weight and keep it off, we suggest you find a product that offers a bang for your buck with an affordable price point and strong customer support.

Among the best products that we’ve seen in 2016 is one called Leptigen. The formula is a proprietary blend of just four ingredients. Each has been clinically tested and shows promise for boosting metabolism and weight-loss. Reviews online offer stories of some amazing results.

Right now the makers of Leptigen are offering a Special Trial Offer to prove to their customers that they are confident in the formula.

Censor: What You Should Know

Censor is a CLA/ Omega 3-6-9 Blend designed by NDS Nutritional Products. A sibling product by NDS Nutrition is Cardio Cuts. CLA is a group of about 13 isomers of linoleic acid that have been suggested to reduce body fat and decrease the body's intake of glucose. Omega oils have been given "qualified health claims" by the FDA that they can benefit people with certain circulatory problems. The product comes in a soft gel pill and two should be taken three times a day. They are recommended taken on top of a proper diet and along with 30 minutes of exercise a day.

Censor Ingredients

Conjugated Linoleic Acid, Gamma Linoleic Acid, Alpha Linoleic Acid, Eicosapentaenoic Acid, Docosahexaenoic Acid, and Omega 3-6-9 Blend

Product Features

Alpha Linoleic Acid is an omega-3 acid that could possibly reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. It is an essential fat and it is not created in the body. This is ingredient is not unique to Censor as some bodybuilding products, namely Abdominal Cuts, contain it. It is important to supplement this fat, especially if you are eating a low calorie/low fat diet. Eicosapentaenoic acid is also an omega-3 fatty acid that can be found in fish. It has great clinical significance pertaining to lowering inflammation. Docosahexaenoic Acid is in the same class as ALA and EPA yet is well known for treating Alzheimer's disease, colon cancer and improving eyesight and attentiveness in pregnant women. This is an interesting direction to go in; Censor's sister product Intensify Capsules work in stimulating metabolism. Conjugated Linoleic Acid has been recommended as an antioxidant and anti-cancer booster. Some studies suggest it can reduce body fat. The concern over this fatty acid is that it may cause insulin resistance, putting you at the risk of getting diabetes. These omega acids are derived from safflower oil, fish oil, flaxseed oil, evening primrose oil, and borage oil.

Censor Advantages

  • Contains essential fatty acids come in soft gels and can be purchased straight from NDS.

Censor Disadvantages

  • Lacks proof that its ingredients are pure.
  • Lacks clinical studies suggesting its ingredients relate to weight loss.
  • Expensive ($50 per 90 capsules) compared to other fish oil supplements.
  • Lacks any guarantees or customer testimonials.


Omega 3 fatty acids, like those in Omega Slim Essential Fatty Acids, are an essential part of a balanced diet. They are typical extracted from foods like fish, eggs and even algae. Taking Censor on top of a thermogenic supplement and an appetite-suppressing supplement would be a good idea considering its health benefits involving cardiovascular strength. Censor is a fat blocker like Tonalin Cla. However, this product is rather expensive when compared to fish oil supplements that offer the same benefits. Also, before buying any products with CLA or Omega-3 acids, think about how they can be found in many foods already part of your everyday diet.

I’ve been taking for 2 weeks, no negative side effects. I work out 5 days eat clean and coming down nicely

i just bought censor yesterday I hope it works

I have been taking Censor for 2 weeks and my appetite has increased!! Is this normal?

Hello Angela. All users are different and can experience different side effects. Please refer to Censor’s official website for detailed product information.

I took censor in combination with L-carnitine working out 3-4 x a week eating a balance meal i have lost 20pds

I left my censor in the hot car for some hour will it not work any more. Do I have to throw away and get new censor

Hi Peter! You might have to throw that one away. But for more detailed product and usage instructions, please refer to the Censor official website for more information.

If I used both censor and fats burner supplement like lipo-6 black ..will it any side effect or reducing fats faster please suggest me

I did use censor and Lipo 6 together… nothing bad happened! I think it’s actually a very good combination.

Hi! Because of possible interactions with other products, please make sure to consult with your physician before taking them together.

It’s one of the best products on the market for losing weight. I went on a strict 2 week diet, no salt + no sugar. Only greens chicken and tilapia. Added this baby to my diet and the results came in. I noticed how lean I got in just 2 weeks of using it. I went to the gym 6 days out of the week. Took 1 day off which was Sunday, but still ate clean and took my supplements. Been back on this pill for 5 days already, and already feel / see a difference. If you’re dieting, nothing tastes great, as long as the results show up that’s what matters.

Do you lose belly fat and gain your actual pack??

This product is actually a fat blocker, meaning it prevents new fat from being stored making it easier to exercise away the remaining fat.

I brought censor going in two weeks now and I feel lighter. I’m going to give it a month will let you know my results

I’ve been taken this product for a month, great results, but, can I take a normal dose (2) late afternoon without lifting?

You can take it without additional exercise although it would greatly increase your chance of success.

Although greatly increase success if I were to lift after (2) in the afternoon or not to lift?

Personally I prefer in the afternoon, Michael. In fact you may experience better results. The science leans in favor of both: In the afternoon, your body is left to burn calories as you sleep; Before the afternoon and you gain energy for your whole day.

I was just wondering if taking this will make you fail a drug test

We didn’t find anything in the ingredients that would show up in a drug screening, Chris.

I’m trying to gain healthy weight, I exercise daily and I have a very healthy diet. I’m trying to eat more frequent and more meals throughout the day, as well as working out 2 hrs per day (lifting weights). I’m trying to also get my abs to be more define and I was told this product will definitely help me burn the fat in the stomach area. I’m wondering if it will also make me drop weight as I’m already very skinny? I’m just looking to tone up!

If you’re looking to bulk up you should look in our Bodybuilding and Toning reviews. This product is intended as a weight loss supplement.


Hey, Aurelia. No dieters have reported liver problems concerning this product. As always, however, for dieters with conditions it’s best to consult you doctor first.

how long will I see results?

Typically, Ashely, it takes roughly a month to see results you want from any diet. Give or take a few days.

I did help me while very focused on weight loss – exercise. I will start up again, but was researching other options than the expensive Censor.

Is this product metal free?

Yes this product is composed of trace acids fully listed in the archive section.

I have been taking Censor 2 in the morning, 2 in the evening, a protein shake (1% milk) for breakfast (Muscle Milk Powder) then a banana and a Cliff Bar at 10:30 AM, a protein lunch of chicken, vegetables and rice and pretty much eliminated bread and pasta from my diet. If I eat a dinner it’s the same deal. No snacks, ice cream or cheating-takes resolve. I exercise daily with a mile or two walk and I do a strenuous routine lifting relatively light reps of 20lb. weights. In less than a month I have dropped 2″ off my waist and lost 14 lbs. (from 192 to 178) I think I can lose at least 2 more inches off my waist, add muscle and lose another 8-10 with little trouble. I have more energy and I don’t need to sleep 8-10 hours like I used to. My snoring has been reduced and my CBC/Cholesterol are all down 20 points and my average is well within guidelines for reduced risk of Heart attack! Don’t expect immediate results…takes some time for your body to adjust to the new routine. I have found no side effects (no loose bowels, gas or bad taste/breath like so many supplements produce). I’m a fan!!!

I’m already taking fish oil every night have been for the past 5months or so, would this be a problem with it?

Hi Brandon! Please make sure to consult with your physician if you have any concerns about continuing this product.

I bought a stack of 3 bottles last week at GNC for $80 not that expenisve if it actaully works. Especially comapried to other diet supplements.

I just purchased censor and am curios as to when and how many i should take a day. suggestions?!

Read the back of the bottle.

Censor is great! I have been only taking it two times a day and have already lost 57 pounds! Due to injuries I have done this without little exercise and just watching what I eat. This product is amazing! I’ve now started taking it 3 times a day and am adding Intensify Xtreme so I hope to achieve even more results!
