There is not likely a person who has not heard of Lipozene either from television or online. However, we know the advertisements tend to be exaggerated, so you need to find out the real facts. We will provide some of the most important facts for you here.

Overview

Lipozene is marketed as a product that allows a user to lose weight without changing his or her lifestyle in any way. There is only one active ingredient in the supplement, a dietary fiber called Glucomannan. According to the manufacturer, the reason Lipozene works is because of the absorbent properties of the Glucomannan. Unfortunately, there are conflicting results from various studies that have been conducted. However, one fact can not be overlooked: it is not possible to lose any substantial amount of weight without exercise and a healthy, calorie-controlled diet. 

How the Glucomannan Helps with Weight Loss

We already know Glucomannan is a dietary fiber and that those who consume more fiber tend to weigh less. We also know Glucomannan is the only active ingredient in Lipozene, so just how does it help with the weight loss process? Here are a few of the possibilities:

  • Helps you stay full longer. This is because of its ability to absorb water, which allows the food to remain in your stomach longer. 
  • The capsules have very few calories, so they provide a feeling of fullness without increasing the caloric content of your diet.
  • There is a possibility the Glucomannan reduces how much of other nutrients the stomach absorbs. This means a reduction in the number of calories you absorb from your food. 
  • It helps with gut health by promotion of good bacteria. There is a possibility this could reduce your potential for weight gain. 

Lipozene Lawsuits

The manufacturer of Lipozene, Obesity Research Institute, LLC, has faced several lawsuits related to customer service, advertising, and billing. For instance, in 2005 the Federal Trade Commission fined them $1.5 million for claims that were completely false. The advertisement in question claimed Lipozene would result in substantial weight loss without the incorporation of exercise or a healthy diet plan. According to the FTC, there was no evidence to substantiate these claims. 

In 2014 one of ORIs subsidiaries in California was cited for a violation of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act for manufacturing Lipozene with raw materials that were untested and unverified.

In 2016 ORI was again hauled into court for false advertising in a class action lawsuit. They once again claimed there was no need for diet or exercise when using Lipozene. 

Conclusion

Using Lipozene is a personal choice but one an individual must make only after researching for himself. It appears most of the lawsuits have been over false advertising rather than any claims against the actual product. While this is not a good thing, it does mean consumers need to be well-educated and able to differentiate between advertising hype and facts. Advertising is intended to sell a product and not necessarily provide facts. Fact-checking is the job of the buyer.
