Lipored Review - Does This Fat Burner Work? Are cost and negative side effects deal breakers?
No joke – over 50% of diet products simple won’t work. What about LipoRed? We put the spotlight on the side effects, ingredients, scientific studies and customer-service quality. Additionally, we examined user comments by the hundreds. Then, we summarized and refined to give you the info you need.
What You Need to Know
First off, LipoRed ingredients are caffeine 275mg, white willow bark, raspberry ketone, amla fruit, acai fruit, African mango, n-acetyl-l-tyrosine, actopamine, yohimbine hcl, evodiamine and vinpocetine. It promotes weight-loss by burning fat. The capsule is easy to take with you.
LipoRed has only been around for a few years and it’s produced by Max Muscle, which was founded in 1991. The online and local store sell the supplement. We like the longevity of the business and that we found some positive customer comments, but read on…
Price – “Yikes?”
Our first concern about LipoRed ingredients was the total cost. “Just one bottle may not put too big of a dent in your wallet,” said our Research Editor. “It’s the recommended items that could break the back. The company suggests a vitamin and other products totaling more than $200 per month.”
“The recommended stack sounds great, but I can’t afford $199 a month,” said another.
We found that some users found a way to reduce the cost. “I just didn’t buy the recommended stack. I was able to save a few bucks,” commented a dieter.
Side Effects – “How Much Caffeine?”
LipoRed side effects could be because it contains 275mg of caffeine per serving. “I took 3 pills the first day, and I was bouncing off the walls and my heart was racing,” said one customer.
“These pills gave me energy to work out, but they also made my heartrate spike and made me feel restless for the rest of the day,” explains a dieter.
On the other hand, one user said, “gives me a boost without the usual side effects.”
“The jitters I expected. Felt similar to drinking one to many cups of coffee. Not bad though,” said another.
Our researchers have seen that when there is some aspect of a diet that is quite concerning, like it causing negative side effects, the likelihood of long-term weight-loss is reduced. If there are adverse reactions associated with LipoRed, that’s enough reason to leave this one behind.
The Science – “Legit?”
There is some research showing that caffeine can boost metabolism and energy, but it’s readily available. Also, LipoRED contains multiple stimulants and some ingredients that are nothing more than “fads” with no clinical backing. At DietSpotlight, clinical support is what we’re looking to find. If that’s not there, we wave the red flag.
The Bottom Line – Does LipoRed Work?
Well now ladies and gentlemen, what’s the final verdict for LipoRed? We like that it is made by a company that is well known in the industry and that it’s available in stores and online, but we are skeptical about this one because there’s no direct connection to weight-loss. Even though it contains some solid ingredients, customer talking about the high price and negative side effects has us a bit concerned.
If you’d like to lose weight without the high price tag or negative side effects, we suggest you find a supplement that is proven to be a healthy way to slim down and is backed by published scientific research.
Among the best products we’ve seen in 2016 is one called Leptigen. The formula contains four clinically-tested ingredients that have been shown to help jump start fat burning and accelerate metabolism. Based on customer reviews, people are seeing great results and there’s no mention of harmful side effects.
The makers of Leptigen are so confident in their product, they’re offering a Special Trial Offer.

What You Should Know
Lipored is a new fat burner from Max Muscle the west-coast supplement company with supporters like Jay Cutler. This company is known for pushing the limits of stimulation and formulating exciting supplements with some pretty good science backing them up. Max Muscle is extremely good about listing clinical studies on the product sheets for the supplements they sell, but finding those product sheets can be a bit confusing. We were unable to find a complete ingredient list on Max Muscle or any of the store websites, but we did find the ingredient list online.
List of Ingredients
- Caffeine Anhydrous
- White Willow Bark Extract
- Raspberry Ketones
- Amla Fruit Extract
- Acai Fruit Extract
- African Mango Seed Extract
- N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine
- Yohimbine HCL
The art of the proprietary blend is one Max Muscle knows very well. One of the few complaints we have about the company is the fact that they hide all the ingredient amounts in proprietary blends most of the time. The product description does tell us one serving of Lipored contains 275 of caffeine. That is quite a lot of caffeine - about two to three times the recommended amount per serving. We assume the dieter would take this supplement multiple times a day and that could be way too much caffeine for one day.
There are a couple other stimulants and white willow bark (natural form of aspirin) in the formula as well. This could be a try at an ECA stack derivative, but that's not a new concept. Lots of companies use ingredients similar to the classic ECA stack as the base of their fat burners, but nothing can replace ephedra.
Acai, amla and African mango are in the new quite often for health and weight loss benefits. These ingredients support overall health and there is some evidence that African mango supports weight loss. There are links to support these ingredients in the product description.
- Contains healthy, well-studied ingredients.
- Contains caffeine to boost metabolism and possibly increase weight loss.
- All ingredients are listed online.
- There is too much caffeine for the average dieter.
- The dieter should limit caffeine intake from other sources.
- The supplement ingredients are listed in a proprietary blend.
Lipored by Max Muscle had a huge amount of press from the company, but we're not sold on the ingredient list. There is an ECA stack derivative, but the derivative is not as strong as the classic ECA stack despite the 275 mg caffeine punch. We suggest skipping this supplement and trying a product with green tea, caffeine and chromium or other proven appetite suppressant with a reduced calorie diet and workout program.
