First off it’s great to see some of the best Fat Burning ingredients in this product. Green tea, Caffeine and Cayenne all coming up. What is quite bad is the number of additives that take iSatori Lipo-Drex away from being a safe natural fat burner and into something that could cause more harm than good, or just have such little amounts it doesn’t work at all. Take a look below to read up on some of the contents of iSatori Lipo-Drex;
A staple fat burning ingredient. Something you need to up your metabolism and provide you with energy through the day, particularly for those who are dieting and pushing themselves hard. Caffeine is well tested and proven for its fat burning quality. We would say it’s slightly under dosed as far as studies
A natural fat burning ingredient, proven to yield good results. Green tea works by stimulating your metabolism using EGCG, and with a high level of catechin polyphenols, elevates norepinephrine, which again boosts the body’s natural fat burning. Coupled with the fact the catechin polyphenols help your body consume more fatty acids and aid you working out for longer. Ideally you want around 400-500mg a day, so Isatori Lipo-Drex may come in a little under dosed, but it’s a good start!
L-Ornithine is a non protein amino acid. Lipo-Drex uses L-Ornithine to help increase endurance in people who supplement it. The problem with L-Ornithine is that studies have shown it has not proved it can do this. While the the ingredient can be used on its own to reduce ammonia in the blood, there is no proof that this will be of benefit to those training.
Higenamine is used as a fat burner due to sharing similar mechanisms to Ephedrine (*Ephedrine has been known to cause serious harm to some users). It’s important to remember that as with L-Ornithine, there is little in the way of studies surrounding this ingredient. Be careful as this can interact with other stimulants, so we’d recommend testing tolerance before jumping right in to the full dose of Lipo-Drex.
Yohimbe is highly stimulatory compound that, no surprise has had little research. As well as reported uses for fat burning, Yohimbe increases adrenaline levels and also inhibits a process in fat cells that normally prevents them from being used as energy. It is worth bearing in mind that this ingredients effects can be prevented via food intake. Something which is far from ideal when you are training.
2 capsules per day of this seems enough. Purely because of the huge amount of ingredients it contains. But, that is also the problem. When looking at buying an effective fat burner you want a steady dose of tried and tested fat burning ingredients with amounts that are clearly stated on the box that will keep you fueled for the day. We are big fans of Grenade Thermo detonator for this reason. You can see our full list of top 3 fat burners here.
Another major problem with iSatori Lipo-Drex is the fact it’s a proprietary blend, and for the money you pay you can’t actually see the exact doses you are getting. This is a problem because some ingredients need to have a specific dose to work. Plus, you should, when buying a fat burner, always choose something where you can see exactly what you are putting into yourself.
iSatori Lipo-Drex Fat Burner Review Conclusion
While we’d absolutely love to back this product because of the complexity of it’s ingredients, we can’t help but feel it’s a little complicated and also contains some ingredients that could carry some risk. It does however carry some of the big natural fat burning ingredients that we recommend and come at a reasonable price.
