The first thing I noticed about Lipovarin is the fact that they provide a full ingredient list, no proprietary blends, no missing information, a full list, which is impressive in today’s market. In addition, they did not skimp on ingredients, nor did they overuse or skimp on the use of said ingredients. As an example, a lot of your basic caffeine pills on the diet market use about 400mg of pure caffeine. The highest dose recommended for safety reasons is 300mg, but the legal limit in the United States is 400mg. Lipovarin uses 200mg. Then they use bitter orange extract referred to as Advantra-Z on their ingredients list. The recommended dosage is 100-150mg 2-3 times daily. Lipovarin uses 350mg.
Marketing Strategy and Ingredients
If Lipovarin focused on their formulation and left it at that, they would probably be fine. But they had to go and make false claims. When companies perpetually make false claims as to the effectiveness, it makes me question what else they may be lying about, right down to the formulation they claim to use. Example 1: “At last, eat what you want without worry. Lipovarin’s key ingredient, Metazide helps boost your metabolism without the harmful stimulants used in most weight loss products today.” What part of that statement is actually supposed to be true? First, there is no weight loss panacea. There is no miracle pill that will allow you to eat a steak dinner, and biggie size your McDonalds meal every night and still lose weight. Second, no harmful stimulants? Are you kidding me! Lipovarin, as much as we love the supposed formulation, is chalk full of stimulants such as green tea, caffeine, theobromine, taurine, and metabromine. All together, it claims to contain at least 850mg of stimulants. If they are going to falsify claims about something like that, they should at least try not to make it so obvious. Then they claim that Lipovarin multiplies the results of diet and exercise three times over.
Maybe they are referring to one study conducted on 7-Keto. Too bad that study has never actually been successfully replicated, in other words it was a fluke. Add to that the fact that the testimonial pictures look fishy, and Lipovarin is in trouble. Some of the pictures look like the same person, but with an after picture of them sucking in a gut and standing farther away from the camera or just standing further from the camera. Suzy Bruce doesn’t even seem to be the same person. Fake testimonials are nothing new. A lot of companies do it.
Overall Impression of Lipovarin:
When looking at the formulation, there is no doubt that Lipovarin is an above average product. However, when you consider their marketing and claims made, they haven’t exactly been honest with the consumer. They make some amateur mistakes they don’t even do a descent job of covering up. Not only does that lead me to doubt their honestly in revealing the formulation, but also their ability to put it together properly in the first place. I would like to see Lipovarin make some realistic claims and produce real testimonials. If their product is actually worth its salt, those two things should come quite easily. All things considered, I cannot recommend this product to anyone.
