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.
SCAM… SCAM…. SCAM…..

They scammed me too. I got the free trial last month, which never stated any recurring few for monthly shipments. I called them to get my $95.90 back after my husband discovered the charge today. They refused to give it to me. After I explained that my husband lost his job and us losing our car and that I wasn’t working, the CSR said they would check to see if I could get one, but they only came back to say they can’t do that since the system was down to check my account even though I gave they pulled it up at the beginning of the call. They said they would call me back, never did. I call them back several hours later, I get the same rep who was giving a rehearsed line. I call another number and get the account manager, but he wasn’t willing to help. My husband told him off. Anyway, he knew I had called earlier, so he should have known my situation. I may try again tomorrow to remind them what they have stolen at a really bad and stressful time in my life right now.
I got hit after the trial and called to cancel. They gave me my money back and also let me keep the pills. I was angry so I did not use them, my wife did. She lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks. So I am signing her up now. Who cares if whats in it works or not. She has zero side effects and started eating better. Whatever it is Id say its worth the effort till she reaches her target weight. Will keep a eye on it but so far so good.
I read the ‘Free Trial’ offer carefully to make sure i wasn’t signing for an auto shipment. It did not refer to an auto ship at all. A couple of weeks after receiving the free trial, my card was charged $95 for the next months supply. I was able to reach a representative who advised I agreed to the auto ship when I ordered the free trial, even though I argued there was nothing referring to the auto shipment so he then proceeds to tell me it was also on my receipt included in the free trial. I didn’t look that over so couldn’t argue that. Offered me $30 of my $95 back, cancelled the auto ship but he couldn’t cancel the order stating it had already shipped. So, I’m out $65 for a product that does nothing for my weight but causes my low blood pressure to drop lower so I’m not able to take it. I would suggest to all to avoid this company and their product
