Lipovite Facts

  • Manufactured in the USA by Alabama based wholesale supplements company Phoenix OTC
  • Each bottle of Lipovite contains 120 capsules (30 days supply)
  • Fits in with the current craze for lipotropic injections

Lipovite is a vitamin, amino acid and nutritional supplement that may provide a support to weight loss.

It contains amino acids that are believed to help fat burning and help prevent the build up of fats and it contains a range of B vitamins and nutrients. There are no added ingredients or stimulants contained in Lipovite. Instead, this diet pill is described as an alternative to lipotropic injections that may suit you if you don’t want the hassle of injections or if you don’t like needles.

Lipotropic injections are popular at the moment. This latest craze is billed as natural way to introduce fat burning nutrients, vitamins and amino acids into your body, all natural compounds that have a special relevance to fat and metabolism. Some celebrities reportedly take lipotropic injections for health and weight loss.

Lipovite contains many of the same ingredients as the injections and according to the advertising is equal strength too.

Active ingredients include Methionine – an essential amino acid that helps break down fat, L Carnitine an amino acid that helps the body convert fat to energy and Inositol believed to reduce cholesterol levels.

Amino acids are considered the ‘building blocks’ for life and all natural life contains these vital molecular compounds. Amino acids make up a large proportion of our cells, tissue and muscles. They are derived from protein and play a key role in the way we transport and store nutrients.

Lipovite also delivers B vitamins including Riboflavin, Thiamine and Niacin. Although you can obtain all your vitamins nutrients and amino acids by a healthy balanced diet, this supplement offers a way to boost your daily amount.

How to Take Lipovite

Take 2 Capsules first thing in the Morning and 2 capsules before Dinner.

According to the company information, they sell wholesale supplements to licensed physicians and qualified health professionals as well as to private individuals.

All Phoenix products are manufactured in an FDA and GMP compliant facility, located in the United States. Each product has gone through ALL the necessary Testing.

Other supplements include a Lipovingual – a liquid supplement that looks very similar to this one and is also billed as a replacement to lipotropic injections. We covered this in a previous review.

Other Phoenix OTC supplements include BODIVITAMINOSINE® aimed at promoting weight loss and health and METHYLCOBALAMIN a supplement in capsule form that delivers vitamin B12 and is claimed to be an effective alternative to vitamin B12 injections.

Lipovite Concerns:

  • Inadequate ingredients information
  • No evidence that it will help promote weight loss
  • Could cause potentially dangerous side effects

What Does Lipovite Claim To Do?

LIPOVITE contains: “B” Vitamins & Fat Burning Amino Acids.

The product information explains,

The ingredients in LIPOVITE work synergistically together by increasing your body’s energy levels, increasing your metabolism to burn fat and aids your body in removing and transporting fat out of your body.

According to the advertising,

… LIPOVITE Capsules are very similar to our LIPOVITE Lipotropic Injection, just in over the counter strength. They are SO similar to our LIPOVITE Injection, but they are in capsule form and have additional ingredients.

This last point is not explained. The information does not specify these additional ingredients. According to the directions,

Lipovite is SAFE to be used with popular appetite suppressants or OUR daily Lipovingual OTC product (The Oral Lipovite).

Is this true?

Can you really take unlimited and unspecified amounts of vitamins, amino acids and nutrients without worry? The product information does not mention any safety aspects or provide ingredients amounts. It is important to remember that even healthy vitamins can have an upper limit of safety

So What Is Lipovite and What Are The Ingredients?

Lipovite is a supplement in pill form. There is zero information about the ingredient quantities of each capsule, so you really will have no idea just how much you are taking and whether it conforms to the recommended daily dose.

  • Methionine: This amino acid assists in the breakdown of fats and may prevent the build-up of fat in the arteries, as well as assisting with the digestive system. Sufficient Methionine is essential for health and because it is present in meat, dairy and fish, it is easily obtainable by diet. It is POSSIBLY UNSAFE to self-medicate with Methionine especially if you use larger amounts than is typically found in food because it can cause brain damage and death. It also increases blood levels of homocysteine, a chemical that might cause heart disease. Amounts unknown here.

  • Inositol: Although the Lipovite product information makes all sorts of claims for Inositol such as it playing an important role in the development of cells it is most frequently used for mental health issues such as panic attacks and OCD. It may help reduce cholesterol levels but it lacks evidence.
  • Choline Chloride: This is an essential nutrient similar to the B vitamins and present in many feeds including spinach, nuts and broccoli. Choline is used in many chemical reactions in the body and is also the precursor to acetylcholine, one of the crucial brain chemicals involved in memory.
  • Thiamine: Also known as vitamin B1, this helps the body’s cells convert carbohydrates into energy. It is also essential for the functioning of the heart, muscles, and nervous system.
  • Riboflavin: Also known as Vitamin B2 and a familiar name to anyone who reads the ingredients list of breakfast cereals, Riboflavin is used for preventing low levels of riboflavin (riboflavin deficiency), and is important for good health.
  • Niacinamide: Also known as Vitamin B3, Niacin may help reduce high cholesterol, although changing your diet is probably more effective. . It is also used along with other treatments for circulation problems, migraine headache, dizziness, and to reduce the diarrhoea associated with cholera. Can cause side effects if taken to excess.
  • D-Pantothenol: Panthenol (Vitamin B5) is the stable form of panthotenic acid and used in skin and hair products because it plays an important role in the cell regeneration processes of the hair and skin.
  • Pyridoxine: (Vitamin B6) This Important vitamin is required by your body for utilization of energy in the foods you eat, production of red blood cells, and proper functioning of nerves.
  • Methylcobalmine: Also known a Vitamin B12 plays an important role in red blood cells, prevention and treatment of anaemia, methylation reactions, and immune system regulation.
  • Levocarnitine: Synthetic variety of amino acid Carnitine and often taken as a supplement because it is believed to assist muscle development. Lack of Carnitine can lead to liver, heart, and muscle problems.
  • Chromium: This is a trace mineral so your body requires very little and in high amounts, it is very dangerous. Although it may be effective a treatment for diabetes, it requires further clinical testing and the establishment of an effective dose.
  • L-Citrulline: This naturally occurring amino acid is found in food, such as watermelons, and also made in the body. It may have medical benefits but requires further testing and clinical investigation.

So What Does All This Mean?

Although all the ingredients of Lipovite are important for health and wellbeing, taking supplements are not always safe. We are concerned about taking unknown quantities of Methionine and Chromium, because both these substances are dangerous if taken in high quantities. Niacin is well known for causing side effects to skin such as a burning sensation, skin rashes and irritation.

If you do want to take vitamin supplements, it is important to take products that come with accurate amount quantities that conform to safety guidelines. With Lipovite, you just don’t know what you are taking.

As a safer alternative, you could buy a vitamin B complex from the health food shop and receive a safe boost of ALL eight B vitamins including Folic Acid (vitamin B9)

Does Lipovite Have Any Side Effects?

Lipovite may cause side effects. The risk will be increased if you add this supplement to other supplements such as Lipovingual or the lipotropic injections. The product information warns you of ‘mild flushing or redness of face’ associated with niacin.

Potential side effects may include:

  • Skin irritation
  • Facial flushing
  • Burning sensation of skin
  • Increased risk of brain damage and death
  • Increase in blood levels of increase blood levels of homocysteine, a chemical that might cause heart disease
  • Increased risk of tumours

Other side effects may include:

  • Diarrhoea
  • Vomiting
  • Sweating
  • Headaches

Caution:
Not suitable for individuals under 18.

Do not take if you are pregnant or breast feeding.

Seek medical advice before use especially if you have any health issues or are taking prescription medication.

Any Lipovite Reviews From Customers?

There are no customer reviews for Lipovite so we cannot bring you any true-life experiences.

So Does Lipovite Work?

We cannot see how or why Lipovite will help you lose weight. There is just no evidence that it will help weight loss or transport fats in the way as described.

It is important to remember that just because vitamins and amino acids are essential for health; this does not make them safe if taken in excess. With Lipovite, you just don’t know what you are taking and we feel that this supplement is potentially dangerous. Especially if you take in combination with vitamin shots or other vitamin/ amino acid supplements such as Lipovingual.

The health risks of Methionine and Chromium are especially of concern.

What About A Guarantee

Lipovite is not covered by a guarantee.

Watchdog Verdict

It sounds as if taking vitamin and amino acid supplements should be safe but this is not always the case. Chromium and Methionine can be dangerous at high levels and this supplement may cause some unpleasant side effects as well as pose a long-term health risk.

Lipovite does not come with any ingredients information and without knowing how much of anything is contained in this supplement; you will have no way of knowing whether this vitamin supplement is safe or dangerous. We certainly would not advise you to combine it with other products like Lipovingual or Lipotropic injections.

Our opinion is that Lipovite is jumping onto a potentially dangerous craze for lipotropic injections and offering a safer looking alternative.

However, it probably is no safer than the injections and with the total lack of ingredients information you really are putting your health on the line should you chose to take it.

Not many people have. There is zero feedback available for Lipovite and in our opinion; it is just as well that this supplement obviously is not popular.

Finally, there is really no evidence at all that this supplement will help you lose weight so it looks like a waste of time and money.

It is an easy decision. We reject Lipovite.

  1. It does work and the capsule form is what I take. Ive had more energy and have lost a few pounds as long as I follow an exercise regime and watch my caloric intake. I think the shots work better for weight loss as I have seen a man at my gym whom got the shots and looked amazing and was like one of those before and after photo’s. He told me about the capsule. Saved me time and money. It may just take longer to get results, but its cheaper and I don’t have to have an appointment. So, there you go- for those that have never used lipovite!

    1. Hi Jayne how did you take yours. That is did you take it with lipivicine & bodivitaminosine . Or you take each bottle one at a time, also in which order. Kindly clear up this for me please. Thank you
