Whilst these diet supplements promise all of these things, not all of them work or are even safe. In this review, we look at the Bio Origins Diet Drops in closer detail to see how good they are.
Bio Origins Diet Drops is a US manufactured non-prescription weight loss product designed to help reduce hunger cravings, reduce appetite, and help burn unwanted fat. It is made by Bio Origins and this is the only product that they manufacture, at the moment. It comes in a homeopathic liquid drop form and does not contain any hormones.
Beta alanine can cause a tingling sensation in the limbs and face, known as paresthesia. It usually only happens in high dosages of the ingredient, which this product is very unlikely to contain.
From the official website, Bio Origins Diet Drops costs $34.99. This price includes shipping. However, if you shop around, you may get it cheaper. We found it on other websites and Amazon for around $29.99. The bottle contains 120 servings which should last between thirty and sixty days, depending on how many drops you use a day.
Bio Origins Diet Drops is a liquid supplement, containing Vitamin D3 and a range of other ingredients which supposedly help weight loss. They are manufactured in an FDA and GMP certified facility, although the claims of the product have not been verified by the FDA. It states it is a hormone free and homeopathic blend, aiming to suppress appetite and burn unwanted fat, as well as protect lean muscle.
Bio Origins are a US-based company. There is no information about who they are, their ethos or where they are. There is an address for a ‘flagship Enfold store’ in a shopping mall on Rodeo Drive. A bit of research took us to a website which appeared to be both an online clothing website and a WordPress theme building website. What Enfold is, is unclear. We believe that it may be the website builder, but having their contact details on the website rather than their own is rather unprofessional. There are no other ways of getting in touch with the company, other than a contact form.
Use two to three times daily, thirty minutes prior to eating. One serving is 10 drops.
Bio Origins claim that their “scientifically formulated liquid drops have a faster and higher absorption rate than pills and capsules” and that they will do the following:
It is important to note here that the FDA is advising consumers to steer clear of “homeopathic” human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) weight-loss products. This product does not appear to contain any HCG, but has ingredients which are known to activate the production of HCG in the body.
HCG, or ‘human chorionic gonadotropin’, is a hormone that both men and women produce in very low levels in their lifetime and which is produced in abundance by females when they are pregnant. It is also thought to help promote weight loss. However, the FDA requires HCG labels to state that several clinical trials since the 1970s have shown HCG does not help weight loss. Also, to work if they do work, HCG drops, or drops that contain ingredients that may help stimulate the production of HCG, such as this one, need to be taken alongside a very low-calorie diet of around 500 calories a day to work. Let’s face it – when consuming only 500 calories a day, you are going to lose a hell of a lot of weight anyway, making the product nothing more than a snake oil. However, this product does not mention anything about a low-calorie diet, other than in the ‘questions’ section on Amazon.
If someone who buys these drops also embarks on a very low-calorie diet, they will lose weight. It’s inevitable.
With no ingredient quantities provided, it is impossible to tell how much of an individual ingredient is used in the Bio Origin Diet Drops. However, it appears that the doses of the active ingredients are tiny, and are therefore unlikely to make any difference to weight loss. The drop delivery system may have a higher absorbency rate, but a high absorption of a tiny amount of active ingredient is not going to be anywhere near as effective as a significant dose of active ingredients that are absorbed into the bloodstream through the stomach. Not only that, but it describes itself as a homeopathic supplement – homeopathy is an alternative medicine that uses extremely diluted low servings of active ingredients in order to work. In most cases, so diluted that ingredients no longer exist.
The ingredients in there are ok – but we are yet to be convinced on how effective they are to help with weight loss or increasing metabolism.
The diet drops could have potentially had some sort of a placebo effect, but we do not believe that the product is effective at aiding weight loss.

We cannot find any evidence of any side effects associated with this product. Beta-alanine may cause a pins and needles type sensation if consumed in a large dose, but this supplement is unlikely to contain enough to have this effect.
As with all supplements, do not exceed the maximum daily intake. Food supplements should not replace a varied diet and healthy lifestyle. Consult a doctor if you have any existing medical issues or take any prescription medication.
There are a few reviews on Amazon – a combination of positive and negative. Many people are saying that it does need to be used alongside a calorie controlled eating plan, which we suspected. One customer did state that he found the title misleading, as he assumed it contained HCG. Other consumers said it made no difference.
They offer a 60-day money-back guarantee. There is no information on how to go about this if you need to.
This supplement is available to buy from the Bio Origins website, costing $34.99. It is also available for $29.99 on Amazon.
We are confused about this product. There’s hardly any information online about it, and it appears to be the only product Bio Origins sell. On Amazon, it is listed as ‘HCG Free’, but in the description on the website it says ‘Bio Origins homeopathic and hormone free HCG weight loss drops are effective for your weight loss goals and safe to use!’ – is it marketing itself as HCG product or not?
Whether it actually works or not (we don’t think it does – see our ‘does it work’ section for more details) aside, we still would not recommend this product to our readers. The website is unprofessional, with details of a clothing/Wordpress developer website rather than their own address, and we know absolutely nothing about the company. Their only saving grace is their money-back guarantee, but as the only way of getting in touch with them is through the contact form on their website, we aren’t convinced that this would actually happen.
Overall, we do not recommend Bio Origins Diet Drops to our readers.
