Leptinal Review - 6 Things You Need to Know


Diet products either work or they don’t. Period. Let’s see which one Leptinal is. There has been plenty of buzz surrounding the softgel capsules, so we took it upon ourselves to create an intensive review, examining the side effects, ingredients, clinical studies and overall customer care. We additionally focused on hundreds of dieter responses from the internet. Finally, we wrapped it all up to give you the bottom line.

What You Need To Know

First off, Leptinal is a dietary supplement available from Wellness Resources, a company that dates back to 1985. This product contains an interesting ingredient blend of marine lipid oil, borage oil, pomegranate extract, Sytrinol, tocotrienols, rice oryza oil, beeswax and extra virgin olive oil. The full dose of Leptinal is two capsules, which should be taken three times daily. According to the official website, it helps promote cardiovascular health, healthy bones and nerves, weight management, thyroid function, healthy blood pressure and healthy cholesterol levels. We see no trouble taking this one on the go, because it is small and portable.

From what we could gather, Leptinal has been available since 2010. This supplement can be acquired through the official website and it uses natural ingredients. Furthermore, convenient contact information is provided on the main website, but read on…

High Price – “Yikes?”

The first thing we worry about with Leptinal ingredients is the higher than average price. “The actual cost of Leptinal is $99 for 180 softgel capsules, which is a 30-day supply. You also pay $6.50 for shipping and handling, which makes the total $105.50 per month. This is certainly not affordable for some dieters,” says our Research Editor. “Especially when you take into consideration the fact that the formula is not clinically proven.”

One customer said, “Too expensive for what it is. No Thanks!”

“Not worth the $100,” said another dieter.

Unproven Ingredients – “Another Concern”

We did not find any science that links the ingredients used in Leptinal to actual weight-loss. Take a look at what one customer stated, “It’s a shame, I really thought this would make a difference. I didn’t notice any change after using.”

Another user said, “Does not work at all, nothing!”

According to our research, if there is a certain part of a weight-loss formula or diet program that is especially annoying or concerning (unproven key ingredients, steep price tag, pills that cause side effects) the chances of real fat loss for the long run are not good. Therefore if Leptinal is too expensive for a lot of dieters, this could be a serious problem.

The Science – “Clinical Proof?”

While we did find a lot of claims made on the official website, we did not see any actual science or clinical trial research. Therefore we really can’t determine if this supplement works as effectively as it’s advertised to. At DietSpotlight, we prefer to see documented studies that support the formula and the ingredients it contains.

What Users Are Saying

"”I have been taking leptinal for years and I go for 4 hours or more between meals with good energy.”"

"”There is nothing else to say about a supplement for appetite suppression if it didn’t have any effect.”"

"”It’s a shame, I really thought this would make a difference. I didn’t notice any change after using.”"

The Bottom Line – Does Leptinal Work?

So, what are we saying about this product? It’s clear that Leptinal is supposed to help the body in numerous ways. While this sounds wonderful in theory, we did not find much concrete evidence to support this supplement. In regards to weight-loss, the ingredients used are unlikely to do much good. When you factor in the high cost, Leptinal does not really stand out as a great option, which is enough reason for use to have reservations suggesting it.

For those who need to get rid of more pounds, we encourage you to go with a diet supplement that contains scientifically proven weight-loss ingredients at a price that does not break your bank account.

Among the best products we’ve seen this year is one called Dietspotlight Burn. This weight-loss pill uses a blend of four ingredients, which have been proven in documented clinical trial research to help increase fat loss and ignite metabolism. Moreover, we can’t pinpoint any complaints of negative side effects and user feedback on the web indicates people are seeing excellent results.

Also, the makers of Dietspotlight Burn are confident enough in their product to offer a Special Trial Offer, which is a good sign.

Previous Leptinal Review (Updated May 13, 2014):

What You Should Know

This product is marketed as a cardiovascular health and weight management supplement. It contains the leptin hormone which is known to play a role in many important bodily functions, including: the regulation of metabolic signals, cholesterol synthesis, thyroid function, liver function, bone formation and pancreatic function. This review will take a closer look at this supplement to see just how it can help with weight management.

List of Ingredients

Marine Lipid Oil, Borage Oil, Pomegranate Extract, Sytrinol (a propietary blend of citrus-derived polymethoxylated flavones and palm-derived tocotrienols), and Tocotrienols from Rice Oryza Oil. Other ingredients include: beeswax and extra virgin olive oil. The capsule is made from: gelatin, glycerin, purified water, and carob. The product does not contain: milk, egg, wheat, gluten, soy, shellfish, added sugars, sweeteners, colors, preservatives, nuts, yeast, or rice.

Product Features

Leptinal is a supplement that contains the hormone leptin. We know it plays an important part in the body as it controls the metabolic signals, and helps keep the liver, pancreas, thyroid and bones healthy. It helps with weight management because of the natural source of DHA. DHA helps to break down extra fat cells while also controlling the levels of leptin in the body. The pomegranate extract in the formula helps give the body tools it needs to regulate the body's stress signals to keep it fighting the weight management battle. The ingredients in the formula also support healthy blood pressure and cholesterol levels because of the DHA and GLA in the formula. People who take this supplement should take one to two capsules at a time, up to three times a day.


  • This is a heart healthy supplement.
  • This supplement is safe for those who have a variety of allergies.


  • The product costs anywhere from $44.00 to $55.00 for a one month supply at the time of this review. It is currently discounted to show a $44 price, when the normal price is $55.
  • There are several other related supplements so this company doesn't focus on just one.
  • There are no customer testimonials.
  • There are no free trials.
  • There are no money back guarantees.


While we like this supplement because it has plenty of heart healthy things about it, we don't think it is the best way to go for those who are trying to lose weight. Without a proven appetite suppressant and/or fat burner in the formula, it will not be as effective. Combine a supplement that contains proven appetite suppressants and fat burners with a healthy diet and exercise program to get the best results.

      It is a great product – no issues with blood pressure or cholesterol medications, but I would recommend you try to get off those meds as they aren’t good for you.
