The LipoXplex formula – when this review was written – contained the following ingredients: Calcium (50 mg), Potassium (70 mg), Standardized 60% Hydroxycitric Acid (375 mg), Tamarind extract (630 mg). One serving size was equivalent to 2 capsules.
The most notable ingredient in LipoXplex is the pure activated form of Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA). This is an acidic chemical compound produced in the fruit of the Tamarind plant. For centuries, this plant has long been used for appetite suppression and to treat gastrointestinal issues. As for HCA, it is believed to help support weight loss by inhibiting the body’s ability to store fat. It may also help the body use fat that already exists in the body for energy during prolonged exercise. It may also aid in appetite suppression by raising the levels of serotonin in the body, which may also help to decrease cortisol (the stress hormone that can contribute to weight gain).
In spite of all these possible positive effects, there is no proof that HCA or Tamarind extract will help with weight loss.
The “suggested use” instructions printed on the label when this review was written were confusing. On the LipoXplex bottle it clearly stated “adults take one (2) vegetarian capsule 1 to 2 times daily with food, or as directed by a healthcare professional.” Obviously there is a typo in regard to the suggested number of capsules to take, so it is unclear if the suggested dose is 1 or 2 capsules that should be taken 1 to 2 times daily. This is a very careless mistake, which calls into question the integrity of the company and the safety of the product, considering they’re not providing users of this pill an accurate dosage recommendation, but at the same time are cautioning users not to exceed the recommended dose (which they’ve evidently not provided).
Although LipoPlex could be purchased on Amazon for $24.95, at the writing of this review, and in spite of having many positive user reviews on Amazon (although there is no way of knowing how legitimate these reviews are), it may be best to avoid this dietary supplement until the manufacturer can put greater care and effort into the information they provide on their product’s label.
