• Bioleptin

    8 mins.
    Bioleptin is a weight loss supplement that contains two ingredients; Irvingia Gabonesis – more commonly known as African Mango Seed extract, and Chromax – a branded chromium supplement. Yes, we have seen this combination before but if you have just sat through the lengthy video sales presentation you may have forgotten these details because, like us, you have probably lost the will to live! We take a look at Bioleptin to get to the real facts about this supplement.

    Bioleptin is only sold online via a video sales page from a company called Puregreens Nutrition. It looks extremely American, but in fact, originates from Singapore. This has caused a medical marijuana company also called Puregreens, based in Colorado, to become extremely annoyed with unwanted emails from customers looking for support for dietary supplements.

    Bioleptin Pros

    • There is no good reason to buy this supplement

    Bioleptin Cons

    • Massively overpriced
    • Overhyped advertising that does not provide any real information
    • Unlikely to work as described

    What You Need To Know About Bioleptin

    Bioleptin is on sale only via a sales video hosted on a dodgy looking one-page website. The message is powerful and convincing and if you stick with it, you can become so blinded by science and the graphics you may find yourself clicking the buy button. All we can say is don’t. Bioleptin is not the All American product it claims to be. Instead, this massively overpriced supplement comes from a company called Puregreens Nutritionals based in Singapore.

    Bioleptin is a standard looking African Mango supplement, and you could pick up very similar from any drugstore or online retailer from a fraction of the price. Irvingia Gabonesis may help support weight loss, but this supplement is not a good way to find out.

    What Are The Side Effects Of Bioleptin?

    Potential side effects may include gas, headaches, sleep disturbances, changes to blood sugar levels, dizziness, nausea, mood swings, and impairment of coordination.

    How Much Does Bioleptin Cost?

    Bioleptin is massively overpriced. The video sales page claims to offer you an instant reduction off the RRP of $89.95 for one bottle, making it $59.95 for 60 capsules for one month’s supply.

    So-called discount offers also apply to larger orders. Three bottles of Bioleptin costs $139.95 (in place of the RRP of $269.85). Six bottles cost $199.95 (in place of the RRP of $539.70).

    Shipping is free to US addresses.

    It is important to point out here that you can buy very similar looking supplements for as little as $16.00 via Amazon.

    Our Verdict On Bioleptin

    We are not impressed with Bioleptin. This supplement is extremely overpriced and comes from a company that has kept its true whereabouts hidden. Although it is supposed to come with a full money-back guarantee, you have not got a chance of getting your money back if you are dissatisfied. A cannabis wholesaler in Colorado with the same company name of Puregreens has become so fed up with fielding calls and emails from people desperate for customer service from the supplement company, they have been forced to point this out on their product website and to plead with customers to stop.

    Bioleptin may actually help support weight loss. It does contain Irvingia Gabonesis as the active ingredient, and also Chromax a chromium supplement that may help regulate insulin levels. However, we cannot recommend such a dodgy looking, overpriced supplement as this.

    Bioleptin is certainly not good enough or trustworthy enough to approve. Overall, we do not recommend Bioleptin to the Watchdog readers.

    Bioleptin Review

    Bioleptin is a weight loss supplement that is only sold via a one-page website, offering a lengthy video sales letter. When the video begins you are assured it only lasts 2 minutes but in truth, it goes on for much longer, it felt like days, but in fact was probably closer to 10 minutes.

    Annoyingly, you cannot stop the video and just read the transcript. You have to persevere to the very end and then you are provided with some written information in the form of another sales letter which is not the same as the video, and then you are taken directly to your PayPal page in order to buy. Phew!

    If you have found this review, you probably have already had this experience!

    Bioleptin Facts

    • The company behind Bioleptin is Puregreens Nutrition PTE LTD, based in Singapore
    • Each bottle contains 60 capsules
    • Only sold via the official website

    Bioleptin contains African Mango seed extract as the principle ingredient. Also known as Irvingia Gabonesis, this bush grows wild in West Africa and the fruit is not strictly a mango, but it looks like one. In some parts of Africa, the seeds are an important part of the diet, because they are high in fat and protein and are easily available.

    The seeds were investigated for weight loss by the University of Cameroon who have noted positive benefits, including the reduction of waist size and lowered cholesterol levels from taking 300mg a day. However, this research took place over 10 years ago and never seems to have been followed up elsewhere. Source

    Irvingia Gabonesis was featured on the Dr Oz show a few years ago where he gave it the usual positive treatment, but in recent years the popularity of this supplement ingredient seems to have waned.

    The other ingredient is Chromax – a branded chromium supplement that shows up in many other supplements and may be useful in helping the body regulate insulin. Check out the ingredients tab to find out more.

    Bioleptin is only available via the official one-page website. However this company is big on affiliate marketing, so you will see it advertised elsewhere with links to the official website. Affiliate marketing is where you advertise a product via your own website, and get paid when someone uses your link to get to the official website and buy.

    How to Take Bioleptin

    • This basic information is not provided but we assume that you take two capsules a day

    The company behind Bioleptin is Puregreens Nutrition PTE LTD. We looked into this and found that PTE LTD stands for a private limited company and is used in Singapore. The company does not mention their true location, and the video certainly is aimed at the American market using American actors and voiceover, and showing the American diet and lifestyle.

    Prior to finding out the Singapore connection, we did find a company called Puregreens online. This is based in Colorado, and it seems that many customers have made the same mistake in thinking that this Puregreens is the company behind Bioleptin and other supplements.

    However, this is not the case. Puregreens only operate,

    “In wholesale cannabis (that’s marijuana, weed, ganja and usually associated with gaining weight, not losing it).”

    The company states “We are NOT a manufacturer or distributor of any dietary supplement. We have been inundated lately with support requests for this company, with a name similar to ours, but we cannot assist in the matter as we are wholesale cannabis manufacturers in Colorado only”. Source

    Bioleptin Concerns:

    • Bioleptin has hidden the location of this company. It is not based in the USA as the video sales page implies
    • Although a 365-day guarantee is promised, we think it is highly unlikely that you will get a refund if you are dissatisfied with this supplement
    • Why is it so overpriced? It only contains 2 inexpensive ingredients

    What Does Bioleptin Claim To Do?

    The supposed benefits are as follows:

    • Reverse or protect yourself against diabetes
    • Lower bad cholesterol and blood pressure
    • Reverse or protect yourself against diabetes
    • Lower bad cholesterol and blood pressure
    • Reduce risk for heart disease and stroke
    • Improve memory, focus and energy
    • Clear wrinkles on your skin and dark spots under your eyes
    • Slow down the aging process to live healthier and longer
    • Heal from the inside out by reversing chronic inflammation that’s responsible for nearly every chronic disease Americans face today

    According to the lengthy sales pitch, Bioleptin activates leptin, a hormone in your body that signals your brain when you have had enough food. This hormone becomes overloaded when you are overweight and ceases to work so you always feel hungry.

    This is, “A condition that scientists say is nearly identical to diabetes because just like diabetics are insulin resistant, you may be leptin resistant”

    According to the advertising, the answer is simple “Once you reset your hypothalamus and reverse leptin resistance, your body will fight against weight gain, not weight loss……Resetting your biological set point at a much lower weight.”

    The answer, of course, is to take this supplement.

    Does Bioleptin Work?

    If you are expecting Bioleptin to change your life around in the way that the advertising claims, you are going to be disappointed. However obesity is a huge health risk, so the claims made for this supplement are essentially the same benefits you can hope to gain by losing weight.

    That said, Irvingia Gabonesis has undergone clinical testing in Cameroon and Senegal and results look positive.

    A study carried out in 2005 over 10 weeks, where participants consumed either one capsule of placebo or one capsule of IGOB131 (containing 150 mg of Irvingia Gabonesis extract) 30–60 minutes before lunch and dinner throughout the study period, had some good results.

    The study concluded that,

    Significant improvements in body weight, body fat, and waist circumference, as well as plasma total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, blood glucose, C-reactive protein, adiponectin, and leptin, levels were observed in the IGOB131 group compared with the placebo group. Source

    However, before we all rush out and buy, it is important to remember that there have only been two clinical trials carried out into African mango, and there have been concerns about the quality and control of the tests.

    A review into these published in a review in Pub Med concluded, “Until good quality trials demonstrating its efficacy were available, Irvingia Gabonesis (African bush mango) could not be recommended as a weight loss aid.” Source

    What Are The Ingredients of Bioleptin?

    Despite the long and drawn out sales pitch for Bioleptin, it is very short on any real hard facts, such as how much of anything is contained in the supplement, and how many capsules you should take every day, or even the serving size.

    • Irvingia Gabonesis: An also known as African mango seed, this ingredient has been tested for its benefits to weight loss and the two scientific investigations looked promising. Bioleptin contains IGOB131, a patented brand of the raw ingredient and the same as used in the clinical testing. According to this information, each capsule contains 150mg to be taken twice a day over 10 weeks.
    • Chromax: Branded chromium supplement from US company Nutrition 21 that often shows up in weight loss supplements. Some clinical testing has evaluated a lack of chromium, an essential trace mineral as being the cause of an inability to process sugar properly and it has been researched for treatment and the management of diabetes. However, medical research has never found a biomedical reason for the body’s need for chromium. If you are diabetic, it is important to see your doctor before taking Chromax because it can interact with your medication. Source

    Does Bioleptin Have Any Side Effects?

    Bioleptin may cause side effects. Irvingia Gabonesis is known to cause;

    • Gas
    • Headaches
    • Sleep disturbances
    • Changes to blood sugar levels

    Chromium is a trace mineral which means that your body requires very little of it. Side effects may include;

    • Headaches
    • Dizziness
    • Nausea
    • Mood swings
    • Impairment of coordination

    At high levels, chromium can cause liver damage, but because this is in the form of Chromax a branded supplement, it should be safe for most people.

    Caution:
    Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Speak to your doctor before use, especially if you have any underlying medical conditions or are taking prescription medication.

    Are There Any Customer Reviews For Bioleptin?

    There are no genuine independent customer reviews for Bioleptin. There are so-called customer feedback comments on the product website, but it is highly likely that these have been invented for the purposes of advertising.

    Does Bioleptin Offer a Money-Back Guarantee?

    Bioleptin supposedly offers a 365-day money-back guarantee but we don’t believe it.

    It reads “If you are dissatisfied at any time just send back your bottles and we will refund you immediately”

    It would have been convincing to have been able to see to returns address. This company is based in Singapore, so does this mean it is the returns address? Could this be the reason why cannabis company Puregreens are getting so many unwanted emails?

    Where Can I Buy Bioleptin?

    You can only buy Bioleptin directly from the official one page website. It is not on sale anywhere else.

      What information do you have on Konjac root extract glucomannan as a weight loss product?

    3. Shirley Sturgis says:

      I need to cancel this order per my doctor’s orders. I am 73 years old and I have some health problems. Due to my health, I cannot take these pills.

      Note: Sending a copy of this memo to my physician.

      Thank you for his review! I thought it sounded too good to be true and am happy you did the research. I try to do due diligence before I buy anything and am happy you provided me with the answers I was searching for.

    5. JoAnne Young says:

      My name is JoAnne Young. I fell for the Bioleptin website and ordered 1 bottle. I have been feeling terrible ever since I began taking it a week ago. It has completely disrupted my wake/sleep cycle and I am shaking all over and my heart is palpitating. I

      reduced the dose and still feel awful. I am 77 years old. I don’t know why I fell for this, other than I have gained a few pounds I want to get rid of. I looked on the bottle for the address to return it. Also tried calling and cannot get through. I am very upset. My head is throbbing, and my stomach is bloated and I simply cannot sleep more than a couple of hours at night. I have learned my lesson. How can I get my money back? I have read the Nutrition WatchDog and they describe my side affects perfectly. If they don’t respond to me I will go to my doctor and have him do something about it.

    7. Having the same problem returning the product bottles. I found it to be a useless product, and have been trying to send the empties back for two weeks now, but to no avail. the address on the bottles read: Puregreens Nutrition Pte Ltd, 616 Corporate Way Suite 2 4107 ValleyCottage, NY #10989, phone912-712-0290. I think I,ve been swindled! Caution is the word when buying online.

    8. MEL JENNINGS says:

      I HAVE DONE ALL I KNOW TO LOCATE BIOLEPTIN ADDRESS AND CUSTOMER SERVICE #, TO NO AVAIL. I DID RECEIVE AN EMAIL RESPONSE FROM THEM STATING THEY THOUGHT USING EMAIL WAS A BETTER BUSINESS MODEL FOR THEM. THAT DID NOT HAVE A RING OF INTEGRITY TO ME, SO I DID NOT ORDER THE PRODUCT. YOUR THOUGHTS ARE APPRECIATED

    9. Our Company, Pure Greens (a Cannabis Cultivation Facility in Colorado, USA), gets calls about this product all the time from disgruntled consumers. They search the web trying to find a culpable party and somehow conclude that we are the company making this product. We are not the manufacturer of this product and are in no way affiliated with its manufacturer, marketer or distributor(s). Indeed, we would really like to know WHO IS marketing this product, so we can steer consumers to them with complaints.

      Some research on our part indicates it is a company named PureGreens Nutrition Pte Ltd.

      Bloomberg shows the address as:
      56 Livingstone Street
      Hokitika, 7810
      New Zealand
