Below we take an in-depth look to see just how effective Lipo Thin from Nature’s Science really is.
Lipo Thin is weight loss aid that is manufactured by Nature’s Science and is sold through third party retailers in the USA.
Despite being named Lipo Thin, which would indicate that the product burns fat in some way, this product is actually an appetite suppressant. Its sole ingredient is glucomannan, a naturally occurring fibre that absorbs water and expands in the stomach, to slow digestion and delay hunger cravings.
Lipo Thin is manufactured by Nature’s Science, but is distributed by another company called Wellnx Life Sciences. Another review of Wellnx Life Sciences reported that the company had been given an F rating by the Better Business Bureau, but our research indicates that their rating has improved to a C rating since the other review was published, perhaps because they have since responded to some of the complaints launched against them.
Customers can contact Nature’s Science Supplements, the manufacturers of Lipo Thin, using the contact box provided on the company’s official website. Nature’s Science products are manufactured in the USA in ‘a GMP-compliant manufacturing facility to ensure 100% quality’.
Take a serving (3 capsules) 30 minutes before a meal twice a day, each time with 8 oz of water. Do not exceed 6 capsules within a 24-hour period. This product should be used in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet and regular exercise program. Read the entire label before use and follow directions.
The manufacturer’s official website, Nature’s Science Supplements, provides the following statement about Lipo Thin:
Nature’s Science LIPOTHIN is a maximum strength weight-loss formula that contains water-soluble fiber called Amorphoallus konjac that has been shown to reduce body weight.
The website does not explain how the product is intended to help to reduce body weight.
There is only one active ingredient present in Lipo Thin, Amorphoallus Konjac. Each capsule of Lipo Thin contains 500 mg of Amorphoallus Konjac, as well as some fillers and preservatives. Customers are instructed to take up to 6 capsules per day, meaning that consumers will take as much as 3000 mg of konjac per day.
Amorphoallus Konjac: Glucomannan fibre comes from Konjac root. The powder absorbs water upon contact and becomes gel-like in consistency; it not only helps to fill the stomach, but slows down digestion, meaning that the dieter can go for longer before feeling hungry again. There are numerous studies that show glucomannan use leads to weight loss without making any other changes.
With only one ingredient, Lipo Trim is essentially just a konjac supplement with a brand name. Konjac root, specifically the fibre contained in the root, glucomannan, does have some clinical support to suggest that it could work as an appetite suppressant to aid weight loss. When the fibre absorbs water in the stomach, it swells into a thick gel-like substance. This works to suppress the appetite in several way; when taken before a meal, it may help the consumer to eat less at the meal by making them feel fuller quicker.
It also slows digestion, as it is such a thick substance, which will delay the return of hunger a few hours after the meal. This could help to reduce snacking and help consumers to stick to their diet. Finally, the product is also thought to slow the rise in blood sugar levels after a meal, because it slows down the digestive process.
By slowing the rise in blood sugar levels, there is no sudden drop in sugar levels that would normally occur. It is this spike and drop pattern in sugar levels that is thought to cause sugar cravings which can often derail the diets of even those with the best of intentions.
Glucomannan works by absorbing water in the stomach, making it very important to drink plenty of water when taking the product. Consumers who do not drink enough water when taking this product may experience constipation and stomach cramps. Glucomannan is a fibre, and so it is likely that consumers will experience increased bowel movements whilst using the product. Diarrhoea can also occur whilst using this product, and consumers who experience diarrhoea should cease using the product immediately.
Consumers should ensure that they drink plenty of water whilst taking this product, and should adjust the dosage as required.
Glucomannan also affects blood sugar levels. Diabetics should consult their doctor before taking any glucomannan based product.
Keep out of reach of children. Do not use if you are pregnant or nursing, plan to become pregnant, have a known allergy to any ingredient in this product, or have diabetes. Not intended for use by persons under the age of 18. Do not use if you have difficulty swallowing. If you experience chest pain, vomiting, or difficulty swallowing or breathing after taking the product, seek immediate medical attention. Do not exceed the recommended serving as improper use does not enhance results. Do not use if inner safety seal has been broken.
Taking this product without adequate fluid may cause it to swell and block your throat or esophagus and may cause choking. Do not take this product if you have difficulty in swallowing. If you experience chest pain, vomiting, or difficulty in swallowing or breathing after taking this product, see immediate medical attention.
We could not locate any customer reviews for Lipo Thin.
The available clinical studies are not 100% conclusive, but seem to support the idea that glucomannan supplements can help aid some weight loss, especially when used to support a calorie restricted diet. The product is most likely to benefit people who have failed on new diets before due to extreme hunger that has interfered with their willpower.
Whilst there are no customer reviews to support this with anecdotal evidence, it seems that consumers who use Lipo Trim sensibly, according to the instructions, whilst following a calorie restricted diet, or whilst adjusting their eating habits to their new hunger levels, will likely lose weight. This product is not suitable for people who eat out of habit or boredom, or who eat excessively even when already full.
Lipo Thin is not available from the official manufacturer’s website. They use another company, Wellnx Life Sciences USA, to distribute the product to other third party manufacturers. Drugstore.com stock Lipo Thin, and charge $13.99 plus delivery for a two bottle pack. This pack contains a total of 84 capsules, enough for a 12 day supply.
Drugstore.com offer a 10% discount for customers who sign up to their auto ship program, as well as free delivery. In general we recommend that consumers avoid auto ship programs such as this, because they can easily be forgotten and are often difficult to cancel, leading to customers being out of pocket in the long term. Considering each order of the product only lasts for 12 days, it seems inefficient to sign up for an auto ship program that sends out a new order every 30 days.
The manufacturers state on their official website that they have a 30 day money back guarantee. They state:
Nature’s Science is guaranteed to work or your money back. Simply return it to the place of purchase within 30 days for a refund with original receipt.
Customers should double check with any third party retailers before purchase, as not all company’s may honour this guarantee.
Overall, there is nothing special that sets Lipo Thin apart from any other Konjac or Glucomannan supplement. Considering that each two-bottle pack of Lipo Thin costs $13.99 and yet only lasts for 12 days of use, this product is actually more expensive than other glucomannan-based supplements we have seen in the past.
The manufacturers offer a 30 day money back guarantee but it is only available directly from the retailer that the customer purchased the product from. There is no evidence or proof that any third party retailer will definitely honour this money back guarantee, and so customers may need to provide proof of purchase and the proof that this money back guarantee exists, should they want a refund.
Whilst the product could aid some weight loss for some people, fibre based appetite suppressants are not ideal for all dieters. This product would be more suitable for someone who feels constantly hungry whilst on a calorie restricted diet, rather than someone who does not struggle to stick to a diet but does have a lower metabolic rate.
Lipo Thin and other glucomannan products will be more effective for consumers who are using it alongside a calorie restricted diet and a regular exercise routine. However, clinical studies do suggest that some weight loss is possible if using glucomannan alongside your regular diet, provided that the consumer does pay attention to their own hunger and satiety levels.
We do not recommend Lipo Thin to our readers. There are stronger diet supplements available that will provide more noticeable results than this product. Consumers who like glucomannan supplements can find better alternatives that do not require consumers to repurchase the product every 12 days.
