This is just as good as the Lipo-6 but it has the thyroid stimulator and CLA. I highly recommend this stuff. I am down 22 pounds on the regular Lipo and I am sure that this new stuff is going to get me down another 25.
John - how can you rate this 5 stars if you haven't even tried it yet? It isn't the same as the original.
I also had the same issues as the other reviewers where the capsules turned brown and leaked out all over the bottle. It's disgusting really. How can I rate this higher than a 2 when the capsules leaked and changed color while they sat in my kitchen cabinet? I didn't expose them to extreme temperatures, nor did I travel anywhere with them. After this happened, I checked other message boards - and apparently I am not the 1st or the last.
I gave them a 2 for "trying" to improve on the original. BUT sometimes you should leave well enough alone.
Sorry to hear all the problems others have had, but like another reviewer I was leaner and more cut on this product. My face was also slimmer. My wife even made a comment about my face looking slimmer. This had me looking right before our cruise earlier this summer, and I got a lot of second looks and stares on the cruise, cause I was ripped baby! I monitored my blood pressure closely as I took this product, cause I have hypertension, and my blood pressure stayed at normal levels, and I did not feel jittery. I know what jittery feels like. I used to use Xenadrine back in the day when it contained ephedra, and I've used Beta Stax which makes me jittery. As a matter of fact Lipo 6x worked so well for me, I was thinking of buying the new Lipo 6 Black, but I am a little apprehensive, cause like I said, I am hypertensive. Anyway, I turned 40 this year, I work out 4 - 6 times a week cardio and weights. I hope this helps somebody!
I used this for a while and I can say it was quite effective for me. I take it 1 hour before lunch and 90 mins before my workout. I sweat a lot!. I can highly recommend it, but consult your doc. first.
I ordered 1 bottle of the 240 caps recently and the caps leaked just like another reviewer said.
Also, when I got through half the bottle, the caps turned brown and some black.
Netrition says it sounded like heat exposure.
Anyhoos, I still find it pretty good. It manages to get my water out (especially making my face slimmer, which was always a problem for me) and I seem to be significantly leaner, slimmer and more cut when I'm on it.
Lipo-6x works great and is my favorite fat burner now. I've used Lipo-6, ErgoLean Amp, BioTest Hot-Rox, Xenadrine, and HydroxyCut in the past (But I do miss having my ephedrine). My only complaint is that the liquid portion of the pills (fast acting portion) leaks all over. The absorbent cotton on the inside of the bottle is soaked brown. Do not travel with this bottle. I did once and I'm sure it has reduced the effectiveness of the pills since they've all leaked. It does last longer (~6 hours) than all the other products due to the extended-release and seems to just work better overall. And I haven't had caffeine withdrawals after taking 2-4 caps/day for 4 weeks and no crashes after taking it. Great product.
Understand that this is only my personal experience, but when I took LIPO-6 it caused the skin between my fingers to break out in blisters like poison ivy. I stopped taking it for a week and the blisters went away, but when I started back the blisters reappeared. So I stopped taking the product all together and I do not recommend this to users that have alike allergic reactions.
