Innermost is a British company based in fashionable Shoreditch London. The company sell a range of health and weight loss supplements, including a wide range of protein powders. Innermost The Lean Plus is a weight loss capsules, but you can also buy Innermost The Lean One protein powder.
Innermost The Lean Plus Capsules is a weight loss supplement that contains a blend of green tea, yerba mate, and caffeine as the principle ingredients, so may help you burn fat faster than otherwise possible. Use with a diet and exercise plan and you may find that it helps your efforts, although there is zero evidence that it will improve skin, teeth, nails, and hair as claimed.
Lean Plus Capsules come from seemingly trendy hipster brand, Innermost, based in Shoreditch London. The company sell a range of weight loss supplements and protein powders via the website, but these are not available in the shops. If you sign up to the official website newsletter you can get a 10% discount off your first order.
Potential side effects are most likely to be related to caffeine and may include jitteriness, anxiety, insomnia, increased heartbeat, irregular heartbeat, headaches, nausea, ringing in the ears, elevated blood pressure levels, and upset stomach.
Lean Plus Capsules is expensive compared to many green tea/caffeine supplements on the market.
Buy from the Innermost website and 1 x bottle of 120 capsules (1 month’s supply) costs £24.95. Standard UK delivery (excluding Northern Ireland is £4.95).
US customers can buy for $34.95 for 120 capsules but shipping charges are not provided.
You can also buy Innermost the Lean Plus Capsules via Amazon UK for £24.95 (free shipping with Prime).
Innermost The Lean Plus Capsules looks OK and if you want a caffeine/green tea supplement for weight loss you could do a lot worse. The ingredient quantities seem reasonably effective and the listed caffeine not overly strong. However, it is important to remember that many of the other components also contain caffeine so it may feel stronger than expected.
We do have our doubts about Innermost. Yes this supplement company with its Shoreditch address looks to be fully hipster and ironic, but there is very little background information and despite the chummy sales writing, this company does not seem easy to contact apart from email.
The lack of a money-back guarantee or any genuine feedback are added concerns.
Being tired of hipster Londoners and the whole Shoreditch scene is no real reason for rejecting a supplement, although the rest of the UK will probably disagree with us on this. However, leaving all that aside we don’t consider this supplement quite good enough to approve.
Overall, we do not recommend Innermost The Lean Plus Capsules to the Watchdog readers.

Innermost The Lean Plus is a weight loss capsule so is not to be confused with Innermost The Lean One protein powder, although you can take the two products together.
Lean Plus is what is usually described as a fat burner supplement although the advertising calls it a dietary booster. It contains a range of well-known ingredients, including Matcha Green Tea, Yerba Mate, and Caffeine, and there is evidence that these three may help increase the speed of the metabolism, and so, help fat loss. There is some evidence that Yerba Mate can reduce hunger pangs because of its effect upon the appetite hormone Leptin.
Other ingredients also look reasonable, L Theanine is an amino acid present in tea and can have a calming yet energizing effect (like drinking tea!), there is Alpha Lipoic Acid a natural antioxidant that can help protect the body from cell damage (it is sometimes used in anti-aging supplements). The final ingredients are some vitamins and capsicum extract. Check out the ingredients tab to find out more.
Innermost is based in fashionable Shoreditch, according to the product information that lists the registered HQ as International House, 64 Nile Street, Shoreditch, London, N1 7SR. This is a block of office addresses, shared by numerous small businesses, so is less impressive when you look into it than it first appears. We found that Innermost is a brand that comes under the company name XX14 Ltd with only one director; Mr Shivraj Singh Bassi.
Otherwise, the company do not provide much background information at all. It gets around this by being “ironic”, such as the small print on the site which we felt was pretty insulting to customers.
THIS TEXT REALLY IS SMALL. IT’S TINY. DO YOU HAVE A MAGNIFYING GLASS RIGHT NOW? COME TO THINK OF IT, WHY ARE YOU EVEN READING THIS AND WHY DO YOU OWN A MAGNIFYING GLASS…
By the time you stop laughing at this wit and hilarity and the fact that you are encouraged to email rather than phone (no phone number is provided), you don’t even notice that Innermost has not exactly said anything at all about who they are or where they are really located.
You can contact Innermost via social media, and we noticed that the company runs fashionable health events in London from time to time in various clubs and hotels although these, of course, will be pointless to anyone who lives outside London.
Other Innermost supplements include Innermost the Lean One (a protein powder), Innermost the Strong One (a muscle building protein powder), and Innermost The Special One, a supplement that claims to turn you into Jose Mourinho. OK, so we lied about that last one. There is no Innermost supplement called The Special One.
There is also a range of capsules such as Innermost The Fit Plus.
According to the advertising on the Innermost website,
Be Lean. Feel Fine. Our dietary booster capsules developed to support healthy-weight loss and optimal functioning of your skin, hair, nails and teeth. Ensures daily compliments remain at a consistently high level.
The key features:
The Amazon advertising explains the quality of the supplement,
Quality nutrition starts with quality ingredients and we searched high and low for the very best: unadulterated, responsibly sourced, low-sugar and GMO-free. Backed by real science, all our products have been developed and manufactured in the UK by leading nutritionists and independently tested to ensure you only get the highest quality ingredients you need with absolutely no nasties.
The advertising is very London centric, claiming the supplement is “Stocked in many leading fitness studios in London and internationally.”
The supplement might work a bit if you use it in combination with an exercise plan and a calorie controlled diet, although this is no guarantee that you will receive daily compliments as the advertising jokily suggests!
Green tea combined with additional caffeine is a well-known combination. Green tea is rich in antioxidants called polyphenols and specifically, epigallocatechin-3-gallate (ECGC), which some research shows increases the speed of the metabolism and so helps weight loss.
Other research has found that in combination these two have the potential to produce significant effects on metabolic targets such as thermogenesis and fat oxidation, although it does not work on everyone and if you already drink green tea and coffee, it probably won’t. Source
Yerba Mate also contains caffeine so has a stimulant effect, but it is also high in vitamins and other nutrients. Some evidence suggests it can improve leptin function – the hormone that signals hunger, so it may help reduce snacking. The downside is that this effect has only been seen in animal testing.
The caffeine content is listed at 75mg (less than an average cup of instant coffee), but it is not disclosed whether the caffeine contained in the other ingredients is included in this figure or is extra.
The caffeine effect should be smoothed out slightly by L Theanine. This amino acid is what gives tea its relaxing yet energising effect, so is often included in supplements to help easy jittery side effects. It is believed to reduce cortisol, the stress hormone.
Each serving is equal to two capsules. Quantities provided here reflect the serving size and not capsule size.
The supplement may cause some side effects related to caffeine, such as:
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Speak to your doctor before use if you have an underlying medical condition or are taking prescription medication.
Despite being on sale via Amazon UK, there are no customer reviews left for this supplement. The only customer reviews we could find were on the official Innermost website and look more like part of the advertising than genuine customer testimonials with comments including,
I lost around 20 pounds taking this product over a period of two months and right in time for my big day. So happy to find a product that cuts through the hype and actually delivers. Thank you so much.
Honestly could not say a bad thing about this product. The results came within the first week and I have so much more confident in my body because of it. I highly recommend as it actually works! Only wish I had found it sooner
There is no money-back guarantee beyond a standard returns policy, which will not cover you if you have opened or tried the supplement.
To claim a return on unused products, you are advised to contact the company via email within 14 days of delivery and return the product. If this is all achieved within 28 days, you will be refunded.
You can buy Innermost The Lean Plus Capsules from the Innermost website or via Amazon UK. According to the product information, the supplements are also on sale from some London gyms although these are not actually named.
International customers can buy direct from the website.
