LeptiBURN wants you to “gain control over the hormone that influences practically every hormone related to fat loss.”
Wow! That sounds pretty intense. Only problem is, I’m asking:
How exactly is that different from any other weight-loss supplement?
Remember: Weight-loss supplements say some outrageous things sometimes. LeptiBURN surrounds itself around a fat-burning hormone in the body called Leptin. This hormone has control of a lot of factors that regulate fat loss in your body and could eventually “impact your ability to burn fat as a whole.” – So if this is true, we might have a winner, winner.
However, I refuse to say “chicken dinner” until I see the proof…
Here are 5 things you HAVE to know about LeptiBURN.
Let’s get down to business…
What is Biotrust LeptiBURN?
First off, Biotrust LeptiBURN is a fat-burner. The ingredients are green tea extract, irvingia gabonensis, 5-Hydroxytryptophan and aframomum melegueta seed. You take two pills, twice a day. With regular use, you’re supposed to notice improvements in fat-loss, while breaking through weight-loss plateaus.
Biotrust Nutrition, founded in 2012, makes LeptiBURN 2.0. The official website sells the supplement, as well as trusted online retailers. We like the good BBB rating and that we located a few positive customer comments, but read on…
Weight-Loss Ingredients – “Effective”
The first thing we looked at was the effectiveness of Biotrust LeptiBURN ingredients. “It’s promising when a supplement contains researched ingredients,” said our Research Editor. “That means there’s a chance dieters will notice results.”
A dieter reported, “Been using this for three months and the weight loss has been paced and steady.”
“I lost weight using this product. I also do aerobic exercises everyday for one hour and thought that would be helpful especially after the “cheat” day,” commented another.
One said, “It’s not a miracle product there are things you must do i.e., exercise, eat right, and if you do, it works!”
According to another dieter, “It does seem to reduce hunger pangs and give you more energy, but I have not lost weight yet.”
Biotrust LeptiBURN Side Effects – “Positive Reactions”
We took a close look at LeptiBurn side effects. “After taking LeptiBurn for 2 days I had a headache. I wasn’t hydrating my body,” reported a customer.
One says, “No side effects experienced.”
Another stated, “I have been on LeptiBurn for about 2 months, and have no side effects at all. ”
Based on our research, users notice long-term success when there’s no chance of harmful side effects. There’s a benefit to dieters when they don’t experience adverse reactions while using LeptiBurn.
The Science – “Any Evidence?”
The official LeptiBURN website states the ingredients are added in “scientific amounts”. Studies on the website are not as supportive as we’d like to see, but we do know the caffeine and green tea  are two of the better additions to the formula. In total, there are more than 25 studies listed to support the benefits of the key elements. At DietSpotlight, research is a critical part of choosing the best product.
The Bottom Line – Does Biotrust LeptiBurn Work?
Will Biotrust LeptiBurn help you lose those pounds? There’s a chance. We like the longevity of the company and that it uses some natural ingredients. We also like that there’s research supporting the key elements in the formula, similar to Contrave.
If you want to improve weight-loss, you may want to consider adding a supplement to your regimen containing ingredients supported by research and positive reviews.
Among the best products we’ve seen this year is called Dietspotlight Burn. The formula is a proprietary blend of four ingredients that science and studies say can help increase metabolism, decrease hunger and boost fat loss. The testimonials we’ve encountered across the web show just how well people do.
Also, the people who make Dietspotlight Burn don’t want you to take their word for it, so they’re offering a Special Trial Offer, which is a good sign.
Previous LeptiBURN Review (Updated February 6, 2014):
Biotrust Leptiburn - What You Should KnowLeptiBurn is a weight loss supplement from Biotrust Nutrition supplement line. According to co-founder Josh Benzoni, leptin works as the dominant hormone controlling functions of all other weight loss hormones. Increasing leptin production and restoring leptin sensitivity would, in theory, promote weight loss and help dieters break through weight loss plateaus. There is little doubt that leptin is significantly intertwined with appetite and weight control, but can an herbal formula alter leptin levels and leptin sensitivity to promote weight loss? While you think about that question, we'd like to point out Metabo Matrix is another weight loss supplement used to help dieters lose up to 30 pounds in a month.
List of Ingredients: Biotrust LeptiburnIngredients:
- Olive Leaf Extract
- Brown Seaweed Extract
- Irvingia Gabonensis Extract
- Panax Notoginseng Extract
- Green Tea Extract
- Yerba Mate Extract
Product FeaturesBioTrust Nutrition does a fantastic job of breaking down the LeptiBurn formula and supporting how the ingredients promote weight loss with clinical research on its official site. Several of these ingredients are found in other diet products Meta Ignite, but also some that are unique to this formulation. There’s even a dedicated page with a long list of clinical references for consumers with questions about the efficacy of the supplement. We decided to do a little research of our own to see if the ingredients in LeptiBurn are as effective as BioTrust Nutrition claims them to be.
Olive leaf extract has some clinical support as an antibiotic, antioxidant and anti-hypertensive, but BioTrust Nutrition focuses on the extract’s ability to stimulate GLP-1 (glucagon peptide-1). We were able to locate a study by Eamon P. Rafferty, et al published in Scientia Pharmaceutica in 2011 supporting this claim. The study reported a 48% increase in plasma GLP-1 in rats given olive leaf extract. GLP-1 is associated with insulin sensitivity and decreased appetite, but ileal cells release GLP-1 when nutrients like carbohydrates, proteins and fats hit the small intestine. LeptiBurn is taken on an empty stomach thus the effects could help signal a feeling of fullness before the morning and afternoon meals essentially reducing the amount of food intake to promote weight loss. Another product that BioTrust offeres to help with weight-loss is BioTrust Low Carb Protein Powder.
Brown seaweed extract is a good source of fucoxanthin and iodine. Fucoxanthin has been named in numerous clinical studies on weight loss – most of which use rats as the study group – with positive results. Human studies are not as readily available, but we were able to find one study on obese, non-diabetic women with normal liver fat levels and no indication of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease that showed fucoxanthin, when paired with pomegranate seed oil, promoted weight loss. LeptiBurn does not contain pomegranate seed oil. Biotrust Nutrition mentions a study claiming fucoxanthin decreases leptin levels. If LeptiBurn increases leptin levels why add an ingredient that decreases leptin levels?
Irvingia gabonensis is an excellent source of fiber. Fiber is commonly added to weight loss supplements to slow digestion and promote satiety. There is some evidence the seed extract can help lower high cholesterol, but weight loss studies are not as conclusive, and not to the extent Cholestoff would. BioTrust Nutrition mentions a study that shows irvingia gabonensis increases leptin sensitivity by reducing C-reactive protein. We found the study published in the journal Lipids in Health and Disease. According to the study, participants were given 3,150 mg of irvingia gabonensis extract daily as 1,050 mg three times a day. LeptiBurn supplies just 300 mg of the extract taken as 150 mg twice daily. There is no comparison between the clinical study and the amount of extract supplied by LeptiBurn – there is simply not enough irvingia gabonensis.
Panax Notoginseng, also known as panax pseudoginseng, is not the same as panax ginseng. Clinical animal studies have shown panax notoginseng significantly reduces bleeding time. The extract may also have liver protective qualities. BioTrust Nutrition quotes a study published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology in 2010 claiming panax notoginseng produces an anti-hyperglycemic effect as a result of improved leptin sensitivity. The study administered 200 mg/kg of panax notoginseng saponins by injection to lab rats genetically prone to diabetes. In a 200-lb human the amount of panax notoginseng required to produce comparable results would be more than 18,000 mg. Saponins are secondary metabolites found in panax notoginseng. Panax notoginseng was not injected as a whole extract.
Green tea extract and yerba mate extract are, in our opinion, the best ingredients in LeptiBurn. Both are clinically supported in human weight loss. At times, when diet supplement products are combined with healthy meal plans and programs, similar to Military Diet, they can help aid in weight loss. Other fat burning products with similar ingredients are Phytodren and Shred Jym. Green tea extract is an excellent source of caffeine and EGCG and yerba mate is a source of caffeine. BioTrust Nutrition mentions these ingredients supply caffeine, but the total amount of caffeine supplied is not noted. Dieters sensitive to caffeine may need to exercise caution when taking LeptiBurn or any supplement containing caffeine. A similar product, Zantrex, also contains Caffeine to help boost metabolism, but is unclear with how much caffeine is actually in the product.
Advantages with Leptiburn
- All ingredients and amounts in LeptiBurn are listed online.
- Green tea and yerba mate may promote metabolism and weight loss.
Disadvantages with Leptiburn
- The total amount of caffeine supplied per serving is not listed.
ConclusionBioTrust Nutrition claims that LeptiBurn will increase leptin levels, promote leptin sensitivity and help the dieter lose more weight. The company offers clinical-evidence for some of the ingredients. We like their satisfactory BBB rating, the strong dose of green tea extract and the addition of caffeine.

We thoroughly researched the Leptiburn ingredients to give you the important facts.
Green Tea Extract
Unlike black and oolong varieties, green tea is unfermented. This herb is well known for its health benefits. In fact, it has been used to lower blood pressure, treat high cholesterol levels, boost immune system health and assist with obesity. It’s also called camellia sinensis, and is used in many dietary supplements.
What is it Supposed to Do?
Often green tea is said to help boost metabolism and reduce body fat. It contains EGCG (antioxidants) and the stimulant caffeine. This tea may also increase energy levels and improve mental focus.
Some research has linked green tea to heart disease prevention. For instance, a 2006 study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association concluded that, “Green tea consumption is associated with reduced mortality due to all causes and due to cardiovascular disease but not with reduced mortality due to cancer.” 
Irvingia Gabonensis Seed Extract
Commonly known as African mango fruit, irvingia gabonensis is a tree that grows in Central and West Africa. The seeds of this fruit are often used for medicine. This plant has been used to treat obesity, diabetes, and high cholesterol levels.
What is it Supposed to Do?
The claim is that irvingia gabonensis helps promote a feeling of satiety, while lowering fat and cholesterol levels. Often this extract is used in over-the-counter diet supplements. It’s sometimes combined with other herbs to promote weight-loss.
According to NCBI.gov, “Irvingia gabonensis induced a decrease in weight after two weeks and after one month. Although the percentage of body fat was not significantly reduced with both placebo and IG, the waist circumference and hip circumference were significantly reduced by Irvingia gabonensis.”
Commonly called 5HTP, 5-hydroxytryptophan is a byproduct of l-tryptophan. It is sometimes used to treat depression, sleep disorders, anxiety, insomnia, headaches, PMS symptoms, down syndrome and even obesity.
What is it Supposed to Do?
5-Hydroxytryptophan is often added to diet products and weight-loss supplements to help elevate mood. This can potentially aid with weight reduction, since it may help prevent stress eating.
WebMD states that, “Some clinical research shows that taking 5-HTP by mouth improves symptoms of depression. Several studies have found that doses of 150-3000 mg daily for 2-4 weeks can improve symptoms of depression. Some early research shows that 5-HTP might be as beneficial as conventional antidepressant therapy for some people.” 
Aframomum Melegueta Seed
To begin, aframomum melegueta is also known as grains of paradise. It is a spice, and is similar to ginger. This herb grows in West Africa, and is often used in cooking or food preparation. However, this component is also used in some supplements.
What is it Supposed to Do?
Well, aframomum melegueta may help reduce excess body fat and treat obesity. However, it appears that more clinical studies are needed to determine this.
Some research revealed that, “Aframomum melegueta appears to have some anti-diabetic and anti-obese mechanisms, although neither are remarkable (the one human study conducted in humans has confirmed an increase in metabolic rate, but required both cold exposure as well as brown fat on the person in question as prerequisites).”
