What if you could lose weight in specific, hard to burn areas without side effects? Lipo Redux, a weight loss spray, promises to help you lose weight without the side effects often associated with orally-injested diet supplements.
Lipo Redux claims to use a 6-phase formula for topical weight loss. They say it will increase insulin sensitivity, neutralize fat tissue, and help rid you of water weight.
Can a spray applied directly to your skin actually help you lose fat?
Lipo Redux contains the following ingredients:
Water, Alcohol Denat.. Propylene Glycol, Caffeine. Raspberry Ketones. Acrylates / C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Triethanolamine, Glycyrrhetinic Acid, Ergothioneine, Coleus Forskohlii Root Extract (95% min by HPLC), Octopamine HCL, Corynanthe Yohimbe Bark Extract, Menthol, Camphor, Xanthan Gum
From this list you may recognize popular fat burning ingredients caffeine and raspberry ketones.
While caffeine is clinically proven for weight loss if it’s given in the right amounts, there is no scientific evidence that caffeine can burn fat when applied topically.
Caffeine is a popular ingredient in weight loss creams, which may be because it can temporarily plump skin, giving it a firmer look. However, it can also cause irritation and rash when applied topically.
There is no evidence that raspberry ketones is effective when applied topically.
The bottom line for Lipo Redux, as with most weight loss creams, is that it may be too good to be true. There is no clinical evidence that the ingredients in topical creams can actually be carried into the blood stream and help burn fat.
So while it may be true that Lipo Redux will not have the negative side effects of an oral diet pill, it also might not have any of the positive side effects…like actual weight loss.
Lipo Redux Pros
While it’s tempting to try a weight loss product that is seemingly so simple and promises miraculous results, you might want to reconsider giving Lipo Redux a try.
At $59.99 with no money-back guarantee, it has potential to be a major rip-off.
There are no customer reviews available online or actual clinical research to prove that Lipo Redux will actually burn fat in those stubborn areas.
The label for Lipo Redux does warn against using more than 30 pumps of the spray in an 24 hour period. They also warn to discontinue use if you experience dizziness, sleeplessness, tremors, nervousness, headaches, or heart palpitations.
Sounds like Lipo Redux may not be so side-effect-free after all.
All in all, you might be better off trying recommended weight loss creams or diet pills.
