Below we take an in-depth look at Liposhred to see whether it can aid weight loss, as claimed by the manufacturer.
Liposhred appears to be a strong stimulant based supplement that is not suitable for anyone with any health issues or anyone who has not tried a stimulant based supplement before. The list of potential side effects is extensive, and anyone who experiences side effects should stop using the product immediately. Luckily, the company will provide a refund in the 30 days after purchase if the product disagrees with the consumer.
The product appears to be targeted towards bodybuilders who are cutting before a competition, especially considering that the product contains several diuretic ingredients that will make the consumer look tighter and leaner temporarily.
There are numerous ingredients used in Liposhred that could cause a range of side effects. For a full list, please see the Side Effects tab below.
LipoShred can be purchased from the official Titan Nutrition webstore for $49.99 per bottle.
Titan Nutrition does not provide any terms and conditions or address on their website, but their customer service team are helpful and quick to respond to any queries that customers may have.
We could not locate any customer reviews for this product, which makes it more difficult to establish whether the product is effective, and whether or not side effects are common.
Because of the use of several strong stimulants such as yohimbe, and the long list of potential side effects that could be caused by this supplement, we cannot recommend Liposhred to our readers.
Liposhred is a multi-ingredient, multi-purpose weight loss supplement. According to the manufacturers, the product will incinerate stored stubborn fat, decrease appetite and cravings, ‘and goes a step further by pulling off unwanted water weight leaving only dry, shredded cuts’, whilst helping to preserve muscle mass.
Liposhred is manufactured by Titan Nutrition. When we contacted the company through Facebook they replied within a few hours and were incredibly helpful. The company can be contacted using any of their social media pages, or using the contact information provided on their official website. The company appears to be based in the USA, but we could not locate an address on their website.
As a dietary supplement, take one capsule twice daily for the first 2 to 4 days to test personal tolerance levels. As tolerated, increase dosage to 2 capsules twice daily. To achieve maximum effectiveness, do not skip meals. DRINK PLENTY OF WATER TO AVOID DEHYDRATION.
MORNING: 2 Capsules (preferably with a meal)
MID-AFTERNOON: 2 Capsules (preferably with a meal)
Do not exceed 4 capsules within a 24-hour period.
Caffeine will increase energy levels and potentially cause a slight increase to the body’s metabolic rate for a few hours after consumption.
However, Evodia reduces the effectiveness of caffeine; whilst this lowers the chances of side effects from the caffeine content, it also reduces the effectiveness of the product.
Yohimbe has been associated with a wide variety of side effects, as described in the side effects section below, which could prevent some groups of people from taking this diet pill.
Mucunapruriens contains an active ingredient that theoretically should increase dopamine levels in the brain, but studies suggest that it needs to be combined with other ingredients to be effective.
Lower levels of dopamine in the brain have been associated with binge eating and a lack of motivation (amongst many other traits), and so low dopamine levels could theoretically seriously hinder weight loss attempts.
The manufacturers of LipoShred provide the following description of their weight loss supplement:

There is a huge list of ingredients that are used in Liposhred, many of which are thought to aid weight loss in a variety of ways.
Caffeine may provide a slight boost to the metabolism. 7-keto also appears to boost the metabolism. Ginger may mildly suppress the appetite. Fucoxanthin is connected with slow, long term weight loss, but the mechanisms involved are unknown. PEA and MucunaPruriens could help to reduce anxiety and improve mood. Yohimbe is a stimulant, and while many bodybuilders swear by it, clinical evidence is mixed and it can cause a range of unpleasant side effects.
The product also contains some diuretic ingredients; these will not aid fat loss or weight loss, but will increase urination and could cause dehydration, reducing bloating and causing muscles to have a leaner look temporarily.
Although we do not have any anecdotal evidence from customer reviews to support this, we believe that Liposhred will aid weight loss, but that the chance of developing side effects is relatively high.
The ingredients used in Liposhred are listed below. The product contains numerous proprietary formulas but the individual ingredient quantities are also provided. Where quantities are listed, they are per serving of 2 Capsules.
cAMP Metabolic Amplifying Complex 320 mg
Catecholamine Rush Complex 212 mg
Euphoric Focus Complex 250 mg
Thyroid Synergist Complex 235.15 mg
There are numerous ingredients used in Liposhred that could cause a range of side effects.
Dandelion acts as a diuretic. Diuretics can cause increased urination. Their use can also lead to dehydration which causes other side effects, including headaches. Severe dehydration is very dangerous, and so consumers should ensure that they drink plenty of water whilst taking this product.
Evodia is under-researched, but appears to slow down blood clotting, and so should not be taken in the two weeks before surgery, or whilst recovering from surgery.
Taking 3,5 Diiodo L Thyronine could result in decreased thyroid function, which can in turn cause tiredness, weight gain, constipation, aches, dry skin, lifeless hair and feeling cold.
Consumers of the individual products have also reported developing severe acne, persistent thirst, a feeling of overheating, shortness of breath, dizziness and occasional heart palpitations.
Yohimbe can cause a wide range of side effects, including stomach upset, excitation, tremor, sleep problems, anxiety or agitation, high blood pressure, a racing heartbeat, dizziness, stomach problems, drooling, sinus pain, irritability, headache, frequent urination, bloating, rash, nausea, and vomiting. High doses can cause more severe effects.
If consumers are taking the highest daily dose of four capsules, then they are consuming 440 mg of caffeine from this supplement alone; this is a high dose and so consumers should avoid all other sources of caffeine whilst taking this product, including tea, coffee, energy drinks and many soft drinks, as well as other weight loss supplements. Side effects of caffeine can include headaches, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, increased urination, dehydration, jitteriness, dizziness and insomnia.
MucunaPruriens can cause a range of side effects; the most common side effects include nausea and a sensation of abdominal bloating. Less common side effects include vomiting, abnormal body movements, and insomnia. The ingredient can also cause side effects such as headache, pounding heartbeat, and symptoms of psychosis including confusion, agitation, hallucinations, and delusions.
Tyrosine is generally well tolerated but can cause some side effects such as nausea, headache, fatigue, heartburn, and joint pain.
Ginger can cause heartburn, diarrhoea, and general stomach discomfort.
