Exclusive Thermogenic Blend
Lipozene MetaboUP Plus advertises that it has an exclusive thermogenic blend. However, simply because something is “exclusive” does not mean that it is good, safe or effective. It simply means that the manufacturer is claiming that no other diet pill has the same exact formula.
When this Lipozene MetaboUP Plus review was written, the formula included the following ingredients:
- Vitamin B6
- Vitamin B12
- Green Tea
- Guarana Seed
- Oolong Tea
- Kola Nut
- Platycodon Root
Lipozene MetaboUP Plus Contains Multiple Doses of Caffeine
This nonprescription diet pill contains several ingredients that are considered to be thermogenics and can help boost metabolism and energy, most notably caffeine. Beyond actually listing caffeine as an ingredient, the formula includes several ingredients that contain caffeine including green tea, guarana, Oolong tea, and kola nut.
On the positive side, caffeine can produce thermogenic effects and has been found to help boost mental alertness. In fact, according to some research, caffeine at commonly consumed doses can have a notable influence on energy balance and may help to promote thermogenesis in the treatment of obesity.
On the not so positive side, while caffeine may be helpful with energy, not only has it not be proven effective as a treatment for obesity, but too much of it can result in unpleasant side effects, such as:
- Rapid heartbeat
According to the Lipozene MetaboUP Plus supplement facts label, the total amount of caffeine per serving is 120 mg. However, it is not known if this is referring to only the listed caffeine ingredient in the formula or if this includes all the ingredients within the formula that contain it.
The recommended usage instructions are to take 2 tablets once per day with a minimum of 8 ounces of water. If there is only 120 mg of caffeine per serving (2 tablets), most healthy adults who are not sensitive to stimulants should be able to tolerate this diet pill. That being said, to avoid potential unwanted side effects it would be a good idea to take these pills earlier in the day to prevent the potential for sleep disturbances. It would also be wise to avoid taking other stimulants (beverages, food or other supplements) while taking this product to reduce the risk of negative side effects.
