LipoFuze Side Effects


Many of the ingredients in LipoFuze can also be found in another controversial diet pill, Apidexin. The medicinal herbs and other natural ingredients that are typically found in weight loss products need to be present in a potent enough dosage to have any effect. As the proportion of each ingredient in LipoFuze is not disclosed, it is difficult to assess if they present in the required dosages to promote significant weight loss.

The effects of potential interaction between the 14 ingredients in LipoFuze have not been clinically evaluated. Internet reviews indicate that some users have reported headaches, nausea, insomnia, profuse sweating and increased heart rate after taking LipoFuze.

LipoFuze ingredients

Lipofuze is fat burner which contains 6 patented and 4 clinically tested ingredients. The ingredients include:

ThermoDiamine: This ingredient is the patented form of evodiamine, a Chinese fruit that is claimed to burn fat by increasing the body’s production of heat and reducing the body’s ability to store fat. But no studies have been conducted in man so far. To date only an animal-based study has been carried out and there is no clinical data on whether or not evodiamine works in human subjects.

Razberi-K: Also known as raspberry ketone or 4-(4-hydroxyphenyl) butan-2-one, this ingredient is thought to enhance weight loss via the stimulation of norepinephrine. Razberi-K is said to aid fat oxidation, but studies on human beings have not convincingly proved its effectiveness. One study performed on rodents demonstrated that raspberry ketones prevented fat synthesis as well as the rise of blood triglycerides and overall, helped prevent excess weight gain. The chemical structure of raspberry ketone is similar to that of capsaicin and synephrine. Both of these compounds are well documented for their ability to boost thermogenesis through the release of norepinephrine. However, there are health risks with these two ingredients; synephrine has been shown to have dangerous cardiovascular side effects, while capsaicin has been demonstrated to cause gastrointestinal problems in many users. There are no documented side effects related to raspberry ketone consumption.

FucoPure: This is the patented version of fucoxanthin, a seaweed extract. There are a number of studies that demonstrate fucoxanthin’s ability to boost metabolism, but to date, they have all been carried out in pre-clinical studies on animals. It is also proven that, this ingredient cannot be absorbed by human body easily. Additionally, it has been shown clinically that compounds like fucoxanthin have low bioavailability in man (see Br J Nutr. 2008 Aug;100(2):273-7). One gram of seaweed has several times the amount of iodine that most adults require on a daily basis. Therefore, a potential fucoxanthin side effect could include changes in thyroid function due to iodine excess.

ForsLean: ForsLean is derived from the root of Coleaus forskohlii, which is native to warm temperate habitats including India, and is the only known plant source of the natural compound Forskolin. Amongst other effects, this compound is understood to increase lean body mass and help optimize body composition though cAMP (cyclic adenosine monophosphate) activation. A number (but not all) of clinical studies have indicated that Coleaus forskohlii may cause an increase in heart rate and a decrease in blood pressure.

GuggulEZ100: This is a patented extract of Commiphora mukul. Other common names are Gugalipids and Guggul. In India Guggul is used widely for the reduction of blood cholesterol. Guggul lowers cholesterol and triglyceride levels and helps maintain a healthy balance of HDL, the good cholesterol, relative to LDL, the bad cholesterol (the HDL/LDL ratio), thereby protecting against cardiovascular disease and atherosclerosis. A number of studies have investigated the anti-inflammatory potential of Guggul. Researchers concluded that Guggal was safe and highly effective in lowering the various lipid fractions that are known to contribute to coronary heart disease. There is some clinical evidence to suggest that Guggul may promote fat burning (see J Postgrad Med. 1995 Jan-Mar;41(1):5-7) by stimulating the secretion of thyroid T3 hormone.

Green tea: Green tea has been shown to promote some weight loss. However, it needs to be used in relatively high concentration, and contain high levels of catechins. In Lipofuze, the amount of green tea present in the formulation is not indicated. Users sensitive to caffeine could experience any of the following side effects: restlessness, irritability, sleeping problems, tremors, heart palpitations, loss of appetite, upset stomach, nausea, frequent urination and skin rash.

Bioperine: This ingredient is a standardized extract from the fruit of Piper nigrum L (black pepper) or Piper longum L (long pepper). It contains 95 percent Piperine. Bioperine has been shown in clinical research to increase the absorption of ingredients in nutritional supplement formulations. Additional absorption, even if true, may or may not necessarily be beneficial. It is possible that the use of Bioperine may increase the side effects of certain supplements due to increased absorption.

Capsaicin: This compound is found in chile peppers. It is believed that capsaicin generates heat in the body thereby boosting the burning of calories. However, it appears that very high doses are required for it to be effective. Severe gastrointestinal side effects have been reported in patients ingesting capsaicin. While rare, serious allergic reactions to capsaicin can occur. Contact a physician immediately should difficulty breathing, skin rash, hives, swelling of the throat, lips, or face, severe dizziness, or itching be experienced.

Synephrine HCL: Synephrine is derived from the Citrus aurantium plant used for a variety of purposes in traditional Chinese medicine. Research indicates that it can act as an effective stimulant. After Ephedra was banned by the F.D.A., diet pill makers sought to discover an equivalent. They thought they had found it with Synephrine and, while Synephrine is effective, there is no research that points to Ephedra and Synephrine being comparable. Synephrine can help burn fat, suppress appetite and increase energy. However, clinical studies have revealed that Citrus aurantium induces a relatively modest increase in thermogenesis. Reported side effects include: increased heart rate and blood pressure, insomnia, nervousness, anxiety, tremor, dry mouth, blurred vision, and headache. Synephrine may also reduce the ability to urinate. Consult a physician if you have any history of cardiac disease, high blood pressure, anxiety, or urinary problems. Also, combining decongestants with other medicines with similar side effects may lead to dangerous complications.

7-OXO DHEA: This compound is a metabolite of DHEA, a steroid hormone. This ingredient has been shown to have a positive effect on thyroid hormone levels in obese people, without apparent side effects (see J Nutr Biochem. 2007; 18(9):629-34. Current Therapeutics, (7):435-442 2000). 7-OXO DHEA has been found to be safe in animals at high doses and in humans at up to 200 mg daily. 7-OXO-DHEA should not be taken if you are being treated with glucocorticoids, as it may interfere with their effectiveness.

Other ingredients in the LipoFuze formulation include cinnamon, phenylethylamine, ginger, and 20-hydroxyecdysone (a plant steroid considered to have anabolic activity in mammals).

Is Lipofuze effective?

User feedback on Lipofuze has varied. Some have reported fast weight loss in the first few days (water loss?) when combined with diet and exercise, but the rate of weight loss is lower than claimed by the manufacturers.

  1. I am 32 years old and 30 pounds overweight, i´m looking to loose my baby weight so far i have been exercising and watching a bit what i eat for 2 months and no significant weight loss. I started taking lipofuze yesterday and had the side effects a lot a talking about. I had HEARTBURN, headache, mild dizzyness and a dry mouth (probably because i didn´t take the amount of water required). For the heartburn i took tums today and it helped a lot, i will follow the suggestion of taking them before taking the pill and also taking the pill with a glass of milk. I started drinking a lot of water on day 2 and it helped, i also started going more to the bathroom 1 and 2. Haven´t weighed myself yet. I will keep you posted.

  2. Dizzy first day of the pill, obviously everyone is different! I love the energy and on day 3 have lost 5 pounds! id recommend just getting 1 bottle if your worried

  3. I take a pill with water and I’m fine. If I eat at all with it I’m nauseated for hours and have trouble trying to sleep. I’ve lost 4 pounds and its been 2 weeks. I’m not going to finish this. Horrible. Animal Cuts are the way to go. Make you a little spazzy at times but great results.

  4. Been taking the pill for a week now and haven’t seen any results yet. No side effects like everyone has mentioned except the stomach problemswhich I think is attributed to not taking the recommended amount of water, which when I did I never felt the pain again. Other than that nothing has changed. And is the reason for taking the pill after you’re meal instead of before it because of the side effects or does it actually help you lose more weight? Need to know before I seriously think about returning these to get my $50 back. Think I’ll give it another week and see how it goes. Please answer the question though.

  5. been takeing the lipofuze for one week and not lost anything yet. i havent had any side effects ecxcept a mild stomache. after i ate something, it went away. so hear i am waiting for results. will finish the whole bottle before stopping.

  6. dam .sounds like a bunch i fat lazy users that dont do any exersize.expecting to take a pill and watch tv and lose weight……….ima try them anyway……keep to my normal routine of work and exercize……….

  7. Okay so I started the pills today: took one pill 30 minutes before breakfast…and one 30 min before lunch. After second pill, I started feeling I was going to pass out. Shaky too. I worked out anyway..bad idea..and nearly puked. Nausea lasted for a couple hours. Oh..and my heart rate increased, and I felt as if it was hard to breathe. Its 5:30 in the morning and i haven’t slept all night. Not even tired. Its pretty annoying. Im out often..just was looking for a way to lose some stubborn pounds..maybe 15. Don’t know if I should continue with the pill or not.

  8. Im on day 3 of taking lipofuze. I want to lose at least 10 kgs. Im recoving from a broken ankle and getting back into my exercise, I found that I have majorly increased heartrate, nausia and lightheaded. I know that Im not used to exercise cause Ive been out for a few months but it almost passed out for it. Im trying to drink more water as Im exercising to reduce these symptoms. Its does seem to help. Also Iv reduced my workout time. Im now working out twice a day and find its better to break it up while taking the lipofuze. Havent had any dramatic weight loss yet. And the effects are bearable. Just have to find ways to make it easier. Will report back with in a few weeks.

  9. DO NOT BUY. Every time I take this pill I feel like Im going to throw up. I get this acidic feeling in my throat and stomach and I get very light headed. There are a ridiculous amount of side effects that come with the little weight loss. Most of the weight loss is from not being able to eat because it makes you feel like your going to throw up or pass out.

  10. I am on my third day I didnt take the detox mostely because I didnt know it existed. I experienced some side effects that started today like a lot of pressure in my ears, light headed, really tired (Probably because the before I got no sleep i was restless tossed and turned all night and woke ever hour), before that the first two days I had nothing but I did notice if I was waiting longer than 30 min I would begin feeling very sick like I was high or something. I havent lost any weight from it but hopefully I start getting some results!!

  11. I agree with Jack, sounds like a bunch of lazy slugs expecting the pill to do all of the work. Guess what fatties, you still have to work out and change your diet! Ah-Duh! This is called a “weight-loss aid”, meaning you have to do your part. I went from 245 to 230 in a few weeks with normal exercise routine and and a moderately-strict diet. The pils does what it’s supposed to do!

  12. I starting taking lipofuze last thursday and I have to say, its working I have lost about 4.5 pounds. For the medicine to work your lifestyle needs to work… I didn’t buy this bottle to sit on my butt all day and expect if it to work. Only thing I recommend us that if you are on thyroid medication as I am, one take the thyroid medication first then wait about 2hours for the first pill of lipofuze and also ask your doctor you don’t want to end up in the emergency room for heart problems : ) I’m excited to see the results for the end of the month

  13. maybe my fault…
    from one cap per day.. i felt nothing.. so i increase –> 2 caps this morning
    i feel heart burn .. i drink alot.. n i vomit the water..

    the water go thru my chest n throat .. it’s feel hot ..
    after the vomit i felt better..

    dunno what to do .. to lose the weight

  14. Do not take my uncle had been taking this pills and he took two yesterday and had a heart attack and his in a coma right now. He is 42 years old.
    Do not take!!

  15. been taking for a few days as directed with the detox, reduced calorie intake and exercise as i normally do and i’ve lost 3 pounds in just a few days. I haven’t had any side effects really. Yes my tummy is a little more sensitive but I’m used to that anyway since I had my gall bladder removed a few years ago so it’s no big deal. it mainly only happens when I eat something that my body in general may not agree with since i’m sensitive b/c of having no gall bladder. No increased heart rate, no nausea, no heartburn, a little light headed once in a while but my body stays a little worn down anyway from 12 hr swing shifts and sleep patterns being off b/c of the hrs i work, taking care of two kids and their sports and school and me trying to work out regularly. so that’s nothing that isn’t normal for me. But with any pill that aimed at HELPING you lose weight, you have to do your part at least some exercise and changing you eating habits otherwise nothing is going to work b/c there is no magic pill for people who just take it sit around and eat whatever they want. even if you don’t want or have time to exercise you could just reduce your calorie intake and take this pill and it would still more than likely help you lose weight. recommend getting on to find out based on your lifestyle and activitity level what your calorie intake should be to lose weight. it’s a very useful tool
