Censor Review - 6 Things You Need to Know


We wanted to know why people are talking about Censor body toner. So, our in-depth review focused on the ingredients, side effects, and clinical research. Additionally, we examined hundreds of user comments and remarks. Then, we summarized and refined to give you the info you need.

Censor Readers: Click here to find out why we're giving away samples of our product, Burn HD.

What is Censor?

First off, Censor is an over-the-counter dietary supplement. The ingredients are:

Censor ingredients also include linoleic acid, evening primrose oil, gama linoleic acid, and borage oil. [1] [2] You’ll take two tablets, three times daily at meals. Supposedly, the products tone the body and burn fat. The company recommends a healthy diet and exercise.

NDS Nutrition, founded in 2002, introduced Censor. The official website, health stores, and online retailers sell the supplement. We like that they have some positive reviews, and that there’s science backing healthy oils, 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 $50 per bottle,” said our Research Editor. “But, taking 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 $120.”

“I liked the ingredients of Censor, but it did cost more than others,” said one user.

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

While some reviews of Censor complained about the price, others didn’t mention the cost.

“I think Censor ingredients are worth it. I love healthy fats,” reported a customer. [3]

Taste – “Not so Great”

Based on customer comments, one Censor side effect related to taste. “The gels leaked in the bottle and gave the rest of the gels a strong aftertaste,” said one customer online.

“Kind of a fishy aftertaste for me,” mentioned another.

Many people agreed with these comments, but some offered advice to minimize the bitter aftertaste. “I took these before my meals to reduce the bitter taste of Censor capsules.”

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 support weight-loss. They admit that, when taken alone, it’s not enough to guarantee results. There’s solid science proving the heart health benefits of omega oils and essential fatty acids. [4] Also, there are studies supporting Tonalin CLA as a fat loss aid. [5] At DietSpotlight, we like seeing studies supporting a supplement. Unfortunately, there’s research behind the ingredients, but the company doesn’t offer anything on the official website.

What Users Are Saying

“Great product. I can see it is working my clothes are not snug.”

“I do like this product because it doesnt have stimulants, which I refuse to take anything that makes me feel out of my element. I do feel my portions have decreased due to feeling full quicker. Of course results/effects can vary from person to person”

“Very fishy smelling unlike the ones I bought form GNC.”

The Bottom Line – Does Censor Work?

So, does this body toner support fat loss? Well, we like the longevity of the company and the promising research into fatty acids. Unfortunately, we are hesitant about this one because there’s no research connecting this formula to weight-loss. We’re also concerned about reviews talking about high price and poor taste.

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 this year is one called Burn HD. The formula is four clinically-tested ingredients, which have been shown to help to boost metabolism and ignite fat loss. People are talking about seeing great results and there’s no chatter about harmful side effects.

Right now the makers of Burn HD are offering a 2-Week Sample 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.

    • Veronica

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

    • Maribel (Editor)

      Hi Angela. After some careful research, we found that it is suppose to promotes a feeling a fullness, because of the release of Leptin. Nevertheless, if combined with other medications, hunger can be one of the side effects.

    • Jessica (Editor)

    • Your Name

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

  • Junior A.

    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.


    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

  •  This gives great results !
    Michael (Verified User)

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

    • Michael

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

    • Maribel (Editor)

      Hi Michael. The products claims to tone the body and burn fat. The company recommends a healthy diet and exercise for optimal results. So although you can take it without lifting, it is best to take while exercising.

  • Will this make you fail drug test ?

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

    • Stephen (Editor)

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

  • I'm trying to gain healthy weight
    Angela (Verified User)

    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!

    • Stephen (Editor)

      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.

    • Candace (Editor)

      Hey, Aurelia. As always, for dieters with health conditions it’s best to consult you doctor first.

  • expensive Censor
    Laura Resnick (Verified User)

    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.

  • Brittany

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

  • April

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

  •  Loved the product.
    Mike (Verified User)

    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!!!

    • Brandon

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

      • Veronica

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

  •  If it work then it's less expensive.
    Chris (Verified User)

    • Your Name

    • Maribel (Editor)

  •  This product is amazing
    Gale (Verified User)

    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!
