LipoXplex is an over the counter diet pill manufactured by a company called WiseLifeNaturals. The official website for the company has a page dedicated to this product and claims it was formulated by a physician. This product is marketed as a fat burner that acts as a lipolytic thermogenic, according to that site.
The promise is that it can be used to assist dieters who want to burn off stored fat. This is because these pills are meant to raise fat metabolism in certain problem areas of the body. Moreover, it is also supposed to assist with appetite suppression and help fight food cravings.
At the time of the writing of this review, the LipoXplex formula was composed of the following ingredients: Calcium, Potassium, Hydroxycitric Acid, Tamarind extract. To take this product according to the package instructions, one serving consists of 2 capsules.
Of all the ingredients within this formula, the one most likely to be helpful to a dieter is the activated form of hydroxycitric acid (also known as HCA). This ingredient is a type of naturally occurring chemical that is produced within the tamarind plant’s fruit. This extract has been used in traditional medicines for centuries. It has been used for everything from the treatment of gastrointestinal problems to appetite suppression.
Though research remains early when it comes to the actual effectiveness of HCA, it is commonly believed to support weight control by reducing the body’s capacity to store fat. It has yet been proven that this works to such a degree that it would result in measurable weight loss.
That said, it could also help the body to use its existing stored fat as an energy source when it is taken in combination with prolonged exercise. Keep in mind that this doesn’t mean it will cause weight to come away on its own. You will need to keep up with lengthy regular workouts to be able to benefit from this feature of the pill.
Another possible benefit of HCA is appetite suppression. The reason is that it may raise serotonin levels in the brain. Serotonin can help to reduce stress and anxiety, which could potentially decrease the excretion of cortisol, the stress hormone often associated with driving weight gain producing behaviors.
That said, despite all this potential, that has yet to be any proof to say for certain whether HCA or any of the other ingredients in this pill will provide any measurable benefit to dieters.
