Liposhred

Rating
Whilst many diet pills contain ingredients that address one aspect of weight loss, such as fat burning, appetite suppression or boosting the consumer’s metabolic rate, other diet pills contain a huge list of ingredients to maximise the ways in which it will aid weight loss. Liposhred is one such product that appears to be marketed towards bodybuilders trying to perfect their physique before competitions.

Below we take an in-depth look at Liposhred to see whether it can aid weight loss, as claimed by the manufacturer.

What You Need To Know About Liposhred

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.

What Are The Side Effects Of Liposhred?

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.

How Much Does Liposhred Cost?

LipoShred can be purchased from the official Titan Nutrition webstore for $49.99 per bottle.

Our Verdict On Liposhred

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 Review

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 Facts

  • Manufactured by Titan Nutrition
  • 120 capsules per bottle
  • Stimulant based weight loss supplement

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.

How to Take Liposhred

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.

Liposhred Concerns:

  • Long list of potential side effects
  • No customer reviews
  • Numerous stimulant ingredients

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:

  • Decrease appetite and control cravings!
  • Remove excess water and toxins!

Does Liposhred Work?

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.

What Are The Ingredients of Liposhred?

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

  • Caffeine anhydrous (220mg): Numerous studies have shown that caffeine boosts energy levels and alertness, as well as mildly boosting the metabolism. The effects shown in studies are small, and some studies are inconclusive.
    Source: http://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-living/caffeine
  • Coleus Forskohlii (20% forskolin) (100mg): A plant belonging to the mint family that is thought to boost the metabolism. However, the clinical trials performed using this ingredient have shown no weight loss, even when the participants’ lean muscle mass increased and fat mass decreased.
    Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2129145/

Catecholamine Rush Complex 212 mg

  • Octopamine (150 mg): This is a metabolism boosting ingredient that also increases lipolysis and insulin sensitivity. Unlike many other metabolism boosters, Octopamine is not a stimulant ingredient.
    Source: http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/octo.htm
  • Yohimbe extract (60mg): Some studies have noticed increased blood concentrations of free fatty acids in participants who use yohimbe extract, suggesting increased rates of lipolysis. However, the Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database has stated that there is insufficient evidence to claim it aids in weight loss.
    Source: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/druginfo/natural/759.html
  • Evodiamine (2mg): Evodiamine is extracted from a plant called Evodia. Evodia is thought by some to be a thermogenic weight loss aid. Clinical evidence is sparse, and no research has been conducted in humans. Studies in rats also show that it reduces the effectiveness of caffeine, and causes caffeine to break down much quicker.
    Source: http://examine.com/supplements/Evodia+rutaecarpa/#summary4

Euphoric Focus Complex 250 mg

  • MucunaPruriens (150mg): A bean like plant that has traditionally been used in Ayurvedic medicine. It is used for treating anxiety, amongst other things. However, there is little clinical evidence to support its use: the active ingredient is levodopa (l-dopa), which can affect the levels of dopamine in the brain. However, most L-dopa is broken down in the body before it can reach the brain, unless combined with specific chemicals that are not present in MucunaPruriens.
    Source: http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplements/MucunaPruriens
  • Beta PhenylEthylAmine (100mg): More commonly known as PEA, this ingredient is derived from the amino acid phenylalanine. It is thought to increase alertness, aid in concentration and focus, and may also enhance mood, which are all arguably traits that dieters need help with in succeeding with their weight loss attempts.
    Source: http://www.livestrong.com/phenylethylamine-for-weight-loss/

Thyroid Synergist Complex 235.15 mg

  • L-Tyrosine (200mg): Some people use L-Tyrosine as an appetite suppressant, but there is little clinical evidence that it is effective for this use. Large doses of tyrosine may be useful for increasing alertness, especially in people who are sleep deprived.
    Source: http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplements/TYROSINE
  • 7 keto Dhea (30mg): 7-Keto is the registered name for 3-acetyl-7-oxo dehydroepiandrosterone, and is thought to speed up the body’s metabolism. Studies on overweight and obese participants suggest that the use of 7-Keto combined with moderate exercise and a reduced-calorie diet significantly reduces body weight and body fat compared with exercise and a reduced-calorie diet alone. 7-Keto is also known by several other names, including 7-oxo-DHEA, and 7-Keto-DHEA.
    Source: http://www.currenttherapeuticres.com/abstract?cc=y?cc=y
  • 7-oxo-Dhea (5mg): See above entry.
  • 3,5Diiodo-l-thyronine (15mcg): Studies in rodents have shown that this ingredient affects energy and lipid (fat) metabolism in the body, although the same study revealed ‘potential cardiac effects’. Studies are needed in humans to accurately see its effects.
    Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25322465
  • Thermogenic Drive Complex 198 mg
  • Ginger Root (112mg): Some studies suggest that ginger root is an appetite suppressant. One study used dried ginger powder to make a tea that participants drank with breakfast. Researchers found that satiety levels were much higher when the tea was consumed with breakfast, rather than just the breakfast on its own.
    Source: http://www.progressivehealth.com/ginger-for-weight-loss.htm
  • White Willow (60mg): Willow bark contains salicin, which acts a painkiller, and is thought to be as effective as aspirin. There is some evidence that when taken in conjunction with kola nut and ephedra, it can cause weight loss. It does not seem to have been tested on its own for weight loss properties.
    Source: http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplements/willowbark
  • Niacin (25mg)
  • Fucoxanthin (1mg): A few studies have shown a connection between long term consumption of ‘A daily dosage of 2.4-8mg fucoxanthin’ and weight loss, although there are currently several theories about what mechanism causes this weight loss. Weight loss is not seen quickly with this ingredient.
    Source: http://examine.com/supplements/Fucoxanthin/
  • Diuretic Release Complex 180 mg
  • Dandelion (150mg): Primarily a diuretic and laxative.
    Source: http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplements/ingredientmono-706-DANDELION.aspx?activeIngredientId=706&activeIngredientName=DANDELION
  • Magnesium (30mg) 12% RDA: Can act as a mild diuretic and is important for numerous functions, including regulating heart rate.

Does Liposhred Have Any Side Effects?

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.
