Lipo 13 is a dietary supplement manufactured by Belgian company, Ecopharma, and has been designed as a “powerful” fat burner. The official website for the product claims that it is a “clinically-proven” formula and via “Extended Release Technology” the ingredients are gradually spread through the body. Furthermore, aside from increasing fat burning, it also decreases fat percentage and fat storage, and boosts metabolism to help burn a greater number of calories.
The formula contains 13 ingredients, hence the use of “13” in the product’s name. The 13 ingredients are: Citrin HCA (Garcinia Cambogia), Guarana, Green Tea, Forslean, Bioprine, L-Carnitine, Choline Bitartrate, Yerba Mate, Magnesium, L-Tyrosine, Zinc, Chromium, and Vitamin B6.
According to the official product page, users are instructed to take 1 tablet at breakfast and 1 tablet during lunch as a food supplement. The pills should be taken with plenty of water and no more than two tablets should be taken in a day. Each bottle of Lipo 13 contains 60 tablets; a 1-month supply.
For best results and long-term weight loss results, Lipo 13 should be used as part of a comprehensive weight management program.
Lipo 13 contains caffeine, found in green tea, guarana and yerba mate. Several studies conducted on caffeine have found that when taken prior to physical activity, caffeine can boost performance and may help to improve fat burning. Furthermore, it has been clinically proven to improve mental alertness and may also help to lower appetite in some people.
Unfortunately, while there is strong scientific evidence that suggests caffeine may help to improve fat burning when combined with physical activity, this does not mean that it causes weight loss. Simply because fat is burned does not mean that weight reduction will occur. In other words, caffeine has never been clinically proven to cause weight loss. Moreover, neither have any of the other ingredients found within the Lipo 13 formula.
In addition, not all of caffeine side effects are beneficial. Taking this dietary supplement increases the risk of certain unpleasant side effects, particularly for those who have a hypersensitivity to caffeine. Some of these adverse effects include, but are not necessarily limited to: headache, stomach upset, anxiety, nervousness, jitters, insomnia, etc. Caffeine can also be dehydrating so it is also important to drink sufficient water.
Lipo 13 is not safe for everyone. This product should be avoided by pregnant or breastfeeding women as well as by women who are planning to become pregnant. Individuals with certain health conditions effecting their liver, lungs, cardiovascular system, blood pressure, gastrointestinal system or who have psychological disorders should also avoid this product.
Prior to taking this dietary supplement you should first talk to your healthcare provider.
