Another skeptical product to hit the market is Lipocerin, a weight loss supplement marketed by an equally shady manufacturer, Nutritional Science Laboratories. Nutritional Science Laboratories has earned a dubious reputation with another product, called Certiphene, with their autoship program which assumes the customer’s continued patronage through charging credit cards automatically every month.

What Is Lipocerin?

Lipocerin is marketed as an all natural combination of appetite suppressors and fat burners. The supplement is guaranteed to rid you of “20 lbs. in 30 days,” which is about 1.5 lbs. a day, a rather dangerous offer. Slower weight loss is always healthier and more permanent.

What Is In A Pill?

There is nothing special about the ingredient stack of Lipocerin to differentiate it from other diet supplements. The makers of the supplement stress the content of two important ingredients:

1. Hoodia Gordonii

Hoodia Gordonii is well-known for its appetite suppressing powers. Because of the scarcity of Hoodia, however, its export has been outlawed by the South African government except for those companies or organizations given the permission to receive Hoodia material. These companies need to show two certificates, namely, the C.I.T.E.S certificate and the Analytical Report. Nutritional Science Labs has no such documentation to show. This brings us to question the legality of the Hoodia substance in it and even its genuine existence.

2. Chromium Picolinate

This chromium derivative has been known to play a role in fat and carbohydrate processing in lab rats. Although used in many diet supplements, its effectivity has not been scientifically established in humans. Lipocerin is advertised as superior to Hydroxycut in that it claims to have more chromium picolinate. The above ingredients are the major appetite suppressants. Other appetite curbers are gymnema and chickweed. The rest in the list are natural fat burners and energy boosters such as kola nut, guarana, grapefruit and Chinese ginseng. These contain caffeine, of course, as the metabolic stimulant, aside from the 50 mg. of caffeine listed separately. As an added bonus, B vitamins are added, perhaps to make this look like a health supplement as well.

A Closer Look

The official site opens with a generous offer of a free 25-day trial. As in some money-back guarantees, it pays to be very cynical with these too-good-to-be-true offers. What these do is lure trusting customers into giving their credit card information, after which the company automatically ships the supplements and charges the card monthly whether or not an order had been given. Usually, calls for cancellations are given the run-around or ignored entirely. There have been a lot of complaints in forums about Lipocerin’s billing and autoship program. Let’s hope you don’t join that crowd that got sucked into its hype. Nutritional Science Labs has not gained a very trustworthy reputation and is the object of numerous consumer complaints on other products.

The Bottom Line:

Lipocerin would have been a good choice to try, if:
  • The company had a sterling reputation
  • The ingredient label could be trusted, as a consequence
  • The product came with legitimate Hoodia Gordonii certificates
  • Their word on safety and effectivity were trustworthy
  • They didn’t promise dangerous weight loss drops of “20 lbs. in 30 days.” This would put you in a very unhealthy corner. Besides, the more rapid the weight loss, the more rapid the gain as well.
Stay away from supplements with a lot of negative customer feedback. It’s better to be safe than sorry. Instead look to more reputable weight loss pill brands which promise slow but healthy weight drops and a reputable manufacturer to back them up. One such recommendation is Phentramin-D, a pharmaceutical quality non-prescription weight loss aid.

A supplement from a company that doesn’t deserve your trust is always a zero.
