If so you have probably come across Lipo 6, and are trying tried to decide if it is the right fat burning product for you. The problem is that much of what you read online about this product is shrouded in hype and this makes it hard to make an informed decision.

If you want a full overview of Lipo 6 without the hype then continue reading and we will explore both the benefits and the side effects of this fat burner so that you can finally decide if this product is really worth purchasing.

What is Lipo 6?

Lipo 6 is a fat burning aid – voted fat burner of the year by bodybuilding.com for the past four years. Its makers “Nutrex” claim that it has been specially formulated to increase energy, boost metabolism, and burn fat from stubborn places such as the waist, hips, and gluts.

It comes in liquid capsules which are made using pharmaceutical-technology – the purpose of which is to promote faster absorption of the ingredients contained within into the bloodstream.

So let’s take a look at what’s inside!

The Ingredients & how they work

The key to understanding how this product works is through examining the ingredients that it contains as well as the purpose that each of these ingredients serve and how they contribute to the overall effectiveness of Lipo 6.

Synephrine is derived from a fruit tree known as Citrus aurantium native to Vietnam but cultivated all over the world. It is widely marketed today as stimulant and weight-loss supplement.

Synephrine stimulates the sympathetic nervous system, a system which is activated during excitement or stress and causes ones heart rate to increase.

Synephrine is claimed to increase metabolic rate and caloric expenditure, while also acting as a fat burner which promotes weight loss and higher energy levels. It is also a very effective appetite suppressant.

When taken on its own the effects are limited but when taken in combination with other stimulant substances such as caffeine the effects are greatly increased.

Guggulsterones E & Z – Guggulsterones is a plant steroid found in the resin of the guggul plant traditionally grown in India, Bangladesh, and Pakistan and comes in two main forms Z-Guggulsterones and E-Guggulsterones which are purported to increase metabolism and thyroid capabilities thus helping to aid weight management.

Guggulsterones may also promote reduced cholesterol levels and cardiovascular health.

Caffeine – Lipo 6 contains very high levels of caffeine, one pill has about twice the amount that you would find in one cup of coffee. Caffeine as we all know acts as an energy booster – which when taken in the amount found in Lipo 6 helps to provide increased energy levels that enable you to go that extra mile when working out and exercising.

Yohimbine HCL is an alkaloid with stimulant effects. It is found naturally in Pausinystalia Yohimbine and in Rauwolfia serpentina (Indian Snakeroot). Yohimbine is often sold in herbal extract form as an over-the-counter dietary supplement.

Yohimbine HCL is accredited with aiding localized fat burning and reduction in the more stubborn and troublesome areas – such as the midsection and love handles in men and the gluts and thighs in women

Many bodybuilding supplement companies offer different forms of Yohimbine for localized fat-loss reduction.

Bioperine – is a “Nutrex” patented compound that is specially formulated to aid the absorption of the other ingredients found in Lipo 6. The combination of Bioperine plus the pharmaceutically designed liquid capsules ensure that it gets to work fast once it enters the system.

The one thing that many people report about Lipo 6 is that it packs a punch and kicks in fast once ingested.

Risks Associated with Lipo 6?

As you can imagine with the all the active ingredients that Lipo 6 contains there are bound to be potential side effects and these should be taken into serious consideration before making the decision to use it. However, it should be noted that most people who use this product do so without experiencing any negative effects.

A commonly reported side effect that people have experienced when using Lipo 6 is that their heart races after taking the capsule. This is likely caused by the energy boosting ingredients, especially the large amount of caffeine. While this is not extremely dangerous, it can still be scary and uncomfortable.

Another side effect that has been reported is extreme anxiety this may be attributed to the high levels of caffeine and also the presence of Synephrine.

Skin rash is another possible side effect and is probably caused by the presence of Guggulsterones.

Difficulty or inability sleeping can also occur, especially if you do not regularly consume caffeine.

Some users have also experienced nausea after taken the capsules which again can be attributed to the high levels of caffeine that are found in the product. This nauseous feeling is usually reported by those who are not accustomed to caffeine in their diet but most people who experience this say that it passes once the body adapts to the caffeine spikes.

There are other more severe side effects – paralysis and stomach disorders have been associated with using Lipo 6 they are rare but should be mentioned.

Although the above mentioned side effects sound pretty daunting, keep in mind that they are the exception and not the norm. However, if you do experience prolonged or severe side affects you should discontinue use. .

How to get the most benefit from Lipo 6:
While Lipo 6 does work as a fat-burning supplement it is not some kind of weight-loss wonder product and to get maximum value from it you have to be prepared to put some work in. There are users that claim that Lipo 6 did not work for them, however, in most cases you will find that these people did not change their diets in any positive way, nor did they put in any extra time in the Gym or working-out in general.

To get the most from Lipo 6 you have to work with it – use your increased energy levels for higher performance work-outs and use its fat burning capabilities in conjunction with a good diet. The bottom line is that you won’t burn excess fat if you are consuming lots of fatty foods and lying around on the sofa all day.

What people are saying about Lipo 6?

“I started Lipo 6 about 3 weeks ago. I continued eating normally and didn’t change much in the way of what I ate or when I did it, so I know that the results are based largely on this product. My body fat % was dropping already due to the intense workouts that I was already doing, but the drop rate definitely picked up after the first week on Lipo 6.” Excerpt taken from bodybuilding.com forum

“So I started taking this pill 5 days ago and it is TOTALLY working. I go to cross fit 5 times a week and am doing the Paleo diet (strict. No carbs..No dairy…lots of veges, protein and fats). I am 5’3 and I weighed myself on Sunday and I was 129 pounds. I started the pill on Monday. And today is Friday…I weighed myself this morning and I am 123.8 pounds.” Excerpt taken from illpumpyouup.com

“As for appetite suppression, it has done AMAZINGLY. I eat about 1/2 – 3/4 of what I normally eat. I missed a dosing one day because I couldn’t get home all day, and I found myself dying for food (I regularly eat tons). Ended up eating 3 double cheeseburgers, 2 large fries, and a mcflurry from McDonalds (I know, I’m a terrible person). I haven’t noticed the fat loss much yet, but that could be because it’s only been two weeks into it.

The side-effects were nasty the first week. I felt sick to my stomach when I took them on an empty stomach. This has now gone away though. No other obvious side-effects.” Excerpt taken from bodybuilding.com forum

“I have been taking Lipo 6 for 4 days now and I work out every day and eat right. I have already lost 4 pounds and my family members tell me they can see that I’m losing weight. I’m glad I finally found something that works!” Excerpt taken from Medicalnewstoday.com


The proof is in the pudding or so they say and many people have nothing but great things to say about this product such as its ability to burn fat from stubborn places and the increased energy levels it provides during exercise sessions and work-outs.

The downside of Lipo 6 is that it does come with the risk of many potential side effects but so does every other fat burning product on the market. However, I don’t want to be a scare monger as most people who use this product do so without experiencing any negative impact.

And finally – Lipo 6 was not voted the best diet pills of the year by bodybuilding.com for the last four years for no reason, it does work. However, I will stress once more that for this product to work effectively you have to work with it.
