Lipozene Side Effects

Lipozene side effects

Lipozene is a chemical-free herbal supplement to induce weight loss. It has mostly mixed reviews, with some experiencing dramatic results while others none. The main ingredient in Lipozene is Glucomannan.

Glucomannan is a soluble fiber derived from the root of a Japanese plant called konjac. It expands in the stomach, making you feel full fast. Glucomannan is known to help treat cholesterol and diabetes issues. Its effects in weight loss are unknown.

Before you start taking Lipozene however, its potential side effects must be considered. Though the company claims it has no side effects as it completely herbal and is basically just a fiber pill, but consumers say otherwise.

Lipozene mostly causes intestinal issues and its commonly experienced side effect is flatulence. Excess gas can be uncomfortable though not dangerous.

The pill also causes bloating. Stomach and abdominal pain and cramps can be caused. Another side effect is severe diarrhoea, which has turned off many people.

This also makes regular use of Lipozene difficult. Users expected this side effect to be temporary, but that is not the case. Regular users still report mild to severe diarrhoea.

Glucomannan forms a gel like substance in the stomach and stays in the intestine for a long time. This means it makes it difficult for the body to absorb nutrients from food. To avoid deficiencies, vitamin supplements need to be taken regularly.

This also increases expenditure. Lipozene pills are to be taken with ample water and Glucomannan expands on contact with water. It is therefore possible that it expands prematurely and blocks the gut or food pipe.

The possible difficulty swallowing can be dangerous. Glucomannan doesn’t leave the intestinal tract fast, and intestinal blockage is therefore probable.

Glucomannan is known to be helpful to diabetic patients as it is capable of altering blood sugar levels. Diabetic patients must hence be careful to ensure that blood sugar doesn’t get too low. Some people had an allergic reaction to this pill. They reported rashes, swelling and itching.

All these side effects are attributed only to one ingredient of Lipozene which is Glucomannan. The official site for Lipozene does not specify other constituents of the pill. As the other ingredients are basically unknown, their side effects cannot be studied or anticipated. If you are on any medications it is advisable to consult your doctor before starting on this pill.

It is still unsafe to consume pills whose composition is unknown. It should be noted that the manufacturer of Lipozene, Obesity Research Institute has been sued before for making fraudulent weight loss claims with another pill that also contains Glucomannan.

Overall, Lipozene seems to be relatively safe for most users, but the weight loss results are murky. In any case, caveat emptor.

    I’ve been taking Lipozene for a couple weeks & cutting down on certain foods & trying to exercise everyday, already took 26 pills but haven’t lost any weight & have a rash on my back, both arms & legs and constantly itching, mainly at night & a constant headache. I decided to stop taking Lipozene because it’s not helping me.
