Leptigen is a dietary supplement which is designed to increase the metabolism of users, as well as assisting in glucose tolerance and regulating blood sugar levels. It is available directly from the distributor at a cost of about $110 for a month’s supply. After some deep research by me and few of my colleagues finally concluded that “Leptigen is a new avatar of old Avesil scam!”
Before reading this review, let me summarize the whole finding of our team and why I said “this is probably a scam”.
If you visit the site, you’ll also see information on studies involving the product as well as testimonials from users and information on diet and weight loss aside from the product itself.
What’s In Leptigen?
This product contains a variety of ingredients which you’ll often find in weight loss supplements. These include caffeine and green tea extract, which are included for their well-known metabolism boosting properties. Also included is chromeamate, which acts to help regulate blood sugar levels.
However, what you will find in Leptigen that you won’t see in just any dietary supplement is a patented ingredient that the makers of this product call Meratrim which they claim is an especially powerful metabolism booster. While the ingredient is proprietary, we do know that two of its components are mangosteen (garcinia mangostana) extract and east Indian globe thistle (sphaeranthus), both of which are sometimes seen as ingredients in similar products.
How Does Leptigen Work – And How Well?
The product contains a blend of ingredients which have an extensive history of use for conditions which affect weight like slow metabolism, blood sugar regulation and low energy levels.
Aside from chromemate, which works on blood sugar levels, Meratrim and the other ingredients which this product contains are all intended for a single purpose – to boost the user’s metabolism in order to help them to burn calories faster. That’s exactly what the promoters of Leptigen claim it does. The product website also cites peer reviewed studies which measured the weight loss results of this product when used in conjunction with a daily caloric intake of 2,000 and 30 minutes of walking 5 days per week.
What are the side effects?
As far as side effects, the only ones reported in studies have been mild headaches and a modestly elevated heart rate while using the product. Since Leptigen contains an ingredient (caffeine) which is known to sometimes cause these mild side effects, that shouldn’t be too surprising. However, no severe or harmful side effects have been reported by users.
- Does not cause any harmful or severe side effects
- Has been the subject of two peer reviewed clinical studies
- Distributor provides user testimonials
- At about $110 per month, it’s pricier than some other supplements and weight loss plans
- Caffeine in the product could cause some users to feel jittery
- Can only be purchased through product website
So is Leptigen worth trying out for yourself?
That’s hard to say, although the ingredients contained are very encouraging, as are the user testimonials provided on the website for the product. The price, however, might deter some potential users, but it otherwise seems to be a very well regarded product with some hard data to back it up and that’s always a good sign. Unlike many other dietary supplements, stresses the importance of regular exercise and diet for weight loss, rather than promoting the product as a standalone magic solution. There is an official facebook page; I couldn’t find much activity by users.
