Lepitox is a non-prescription weight management aid that was created by Hemp Water. It is a dietary supplement marketed to both men and women and has been developed to provide the ultimate support to female dieters who want to reach their goals and peak physical performance.
The top benefits that are advertised for this product include:
- Boosted metabolism
- Curbed cravings and hunger
- Lean muscle support
Twenty-three “Essential” Ingredients
The Lepitox formula is composed of 23 active ingredients, which the manufacturer claims are both premium and essential. Regardless of whether or not these ingredients are premium, 23 active ingredients is excessive and is an indication that this diet pill isn’t likely to be very effective at delivering on the benefits it claims to provide.
The simple fact of the matter is that the more ingredients there are in a formula, the less of each can be included, which means that their potential efficacy is reduced. That said, here is a look at the Lepitox ingredients:
- Milk Thistle
- Artichoke Extract
- Chanca Piedra Extract
- Chicory Root
- Jujube Seed
The remainder of the ingredients make up the Proprietary Blend: Celery Seed, Alfalfa, Burdock Root, Yellow Dock, Methionine, Grape Seed Extract, L Cysteine, Feverfew, N-Acetyl Cysteine, Choline, Turmeric, Red Raspberry, Berberine Ginger.
The suggested dose is to take 2 veggie capsules once a day. For optimal results, it is recommended to take the capsules 20 – 30 minutes prior to a meal with an 8 ounce glass of water or as directed by a medical professional.
Water Loss Not Fat Loss
Based on the ingredients in Lipotox, it is evident that this OTC diet pill is far more likely to cause water loss than fat loss. The reason is that it contains ingredients that act mostly like digestive aids, particularly diuretics like dandelion and yarrow and laxatives like yellow dock, chicory root and burdock root.
This means that it is probable this weight management could make you urinate or defecate more, which results in the loss of water. The removal of excess water can give you a slimmer appearance at a fast rate and even take a few pounds off the scale. However, water weight fluctuates and will return, so it isn’t true, long term, meaningful weight loss as would be the case if you were to lose and keep off excess body fat.
Moreover, research warns that digestive herbs that have diuretic and especially laxative effects that have been included in weight loss formulas should be taken with caution. Loss of too much water can cause complications, including dehydration.
Due to the number of ingredients in this product and the number of diuretic and laxative substances, you should probably avoid taking it. However, if you want to try Lepitox, you should first consult with your healthcare provider. This is particularly prudent if you are pregnant, a nursing mother or if you have an existing health condition.
