With dramatic results suggested to occur without any significant changes to your lifestyle, we see if this diet supplement is the real deal!
Not to be mistaken for Lipo-Cal by Maximum International, Lipocal is a completely different product manufactured by Doakes Nutraceuticals LLC, who are based in Utah, USA. This company sell a number of other diet pills on the market, including Phytodren, Lipo30 and Phenphedrine to name a few. We have written previously about this company and its links to Gadd formulas and have a poor history in terms consumer satisfaction.
It can fairly easy to spot diet pills by this manufacturer, or its associates, as they follow a similar theme. The official website tends to be just one page in length, to clearly show attractive men or women (depending on the intended audience) next to hard hitting weight loss claims. Next is the list of fantastic ingredients that are guaranteed to work (oh there is mention normally of a 90-day money-back guarantee too, to give that added assurance!). After a few impressive testimonials, normally without any before or after pictures, you then have a few frequently asked questions.
Lastly there are normally three options for buying one, two or three months supply, the 2 month package is normally indicated to be the “most popular”. They all display are big saving from the “Manufactures Suggested Retail Price” (MSRP), they are very unlikely to have been sold at these prices in the first place! Of course to add that extra bit of reassurance you will see numerous “Site lock”, “McAfee” and “Paypal” logos too.
We also noticed that LipoCal copy a common practise amongst prescription drugs is to include the main active ingredient clearly on the bottle. LipoCal follow the same practise choosing the most medical sounding ingredient to place below the logo, namely “20-Beta-Hydroxyecdysterone”. We assume this is giving the illusion of being a medical prescription drug!
Taking LipoCal is easy enough, it should be taken twice each day with water 30 minutes before breakfast and lunch.
LipoCal is marketed as an all in one diet pill that helps to reduce body fat, curb food cravings and boost energy levels.
By taking this supplement daily the manufacturers claim weight loss is MUCH EASIER and that you soon too could have a “leaner, sexier body”.
There are 8 “rare plant extracts” according to the manufacturer; in fact there are 10 active ingredients in LipoCal in all. We are not sure where the “rare” bit comes in as many, if not most, diet pills include many of these ingredients, so it’s unlikely they are rare!
That aside, let’s take a look at these ingredients and what they are supposed to do:
Chromium supplements are sometimes claimed to reduce body fat and increase lean (muscle) mass. Yet a recent review of 24 studies that examined the effects of 200 to 1,000 mcg/day of chromium (in the form of chromium picolinate) on body mass or composition found no significant benefits” and “In several studies, chromium’s effects on body weight and composition may be called into question
LipoCal clearly plays on looking like a prescription drug with the logo and label design. It’s not and contains ingredients seen in a number of other diet pills on the market.
No ingredient amounts are revealed, only that the formula contains 800mg of so called “ultra-potent extracts”! A claim that is impossible to verify.
Some of the ingredients in LipoCal do have promising weight loss benefits and have studies to support some of the claims. The lack of a full ingredient profile means it’s impossible to say if there is enough quantity for it to really work.
There is no information concerning side effects or even who this supplement is and isn’t for!
With no indication as to ingredient amounts it’s impossible to know for sure the possibility of side effects!
Caution: There is caffeine present and so particular sensitive individuals may experience side effects such as jittery sensations, increased heart rate, sweating, nervousness and insomnia.
There are 7 consumer testimonials shown on the official site, all fairly recent from 2012. With no pictures or letters there is no way to confirm how reliable these testimonials really are.
There don’t appear to be any independent consumer reviews that don’t appear on what may well be fake review sites!
The manufacturer has made an attempt to reference weight loss claims for each ingredient to published studies. The problem is without knowing the quantity of each ingredient in LipoCal it’s impossible to know if sufficient quantities exist.
Remember, the ingredients will only work IF enough is consumed to have ANY effect.
Don’t ever buy anything that you don’t know what’s in it!
Available only online and from the official website, one bottle of 60 capsules costs $49.95 (£34) with free shipping available on two or three bottle supplies.
It’s worth considering that LipoCal is based in the diet pill scam capital of the world, Utah. This and associated companies have a poor history in terms of ripping off consumers so we urge caution if wishing to buy this or related diet supplements.
The manufacture offers a 90-day money-back guarantee if you are not satisfied with your weight loss. In order to qualify you are required to return all ordered bottles whether they are opened or unopened.
Again considering the trust worthiness of this company and its associates getting your money-back may not be quite as easy as it sounds!
On the surface LipoCal looks to contain some decent ingredients that have some potential to promote weight loss. The problem is there is absolutely no indication of the ingredient quantities used in this diet pill!
We can’t help but think the manufacturer has used a few “patented ingredients” along with “medical” like branding to make LipoCal sound and look more impressive than it really is – a diet pill that can really deliver. All in all, LipoCal is very mediocre and at best may help you lose a few lbs but more than likely you will simply lose a few dollars!
Lastly, the very fact that the manufacturer has been linked to dodgy merchants with a less than good reputation in terms of customer care, we have no choice but to reject LipoCal.
Thousands of customers have cut the fat with this fast and powerful thermogenic fat burner. Can suppress appetite, boost energy levels and elevate mood without the jitters.
