Adipren / Meripren 720 Fat Burner Review and Warning
Adipren 720 (also marketed as Meripren 720) is a product I heartily recommend you avoid at all costs. There are several reasons why but here’s the main one…
Adipren is marketed almost entirely via unsolicited bulk e-mail — also known as spam. Every day, I bet I get a dozen messages like this one…

Here’s a special warning — any product advertised via spam is a highly suspect one. No respectable, ethical company advertises in this manner. Not only is spam annoying, costing you and I real dollars and ruining our Internet experience, it is also illegal in many places in the world (including the U.S., which passed its own anti-spam legislation recently — the Can-Spam Act of 2003).
So if you think buying products from companies that conduct themselves in such a manner is a good idea, you’re making a very big mistake indeed. All I can say is…
Good luck getting a refund!
OK, back to the Adipren product. If you click through any one of the numerous Web sites referenced in this spam, you’ll see a pile of unsubstantiated tripe — “voted #1 pill”, “doctor recommended” and so on. Of course, none of these statements are validated in any way at all.
For instance, if Adipren is the #1 diet pill, who voted it to be so? And which doctor (or doctors) recommended this product? Surely if they were so impressed with the product they’d be willing to have their names associated with it publicly?
Hype and advertsing aside, what’s in Adipren 720? Well, it’s awfully hard to tell from the Web sites I’ve seen, since none of them actually contain a list of ingredients. However, when I took a thorough look at one of the Web sites selling Adipren, I found a page that outlines clincal data from ephedra-caffeine studies. This would certainly indicate Adipren is an ephedra-based product. Here’s an excerpt from that page…
“The researchers concluded that “[c]ompared with placebo, the tested product produced no adverse events and minimal side effects that are consistent with the known mechanisms of action of ephedrine and caffeine.” No subject in the study suffered from a serious adverse event, and the side-effects in both groups were transient and mild. The researchers noted that “[t]he symptoms that subjects reported to be most consistently increased by the herbal vs the placebo treatment were dry mouth, heartburn and insomnia.”
Interestingly, when I checked out the web sites selling Meripren I found that they were exactly the same, the claims were the same, and the clinical data presented was the same with one exception… these sites openly advertises Meripren as being an ephedra-based fat burner.
Should these pages be down by the time you read this, I’ve taken a couple of screen shots…
I’ve since heard conflicting reports from various visitors, including a couple of distributors of Adipren, regarding this product’s alleged ephedra content. All I can say is…
The data on the Web sites, especially considering the clinical data cited, are consistent with an ephedra-based product. If Adipren does not contain ephedra, I have two questions…
1) Why not be up front about its ingredients?
2) Why cite clinical data from ephedra studies?
Of course, should Adipren contain ephedra, the manufacturers can’t be too interested in making it public knowledge, as its use is now banned in many countries around the world. Order Adipren 720 from the US, Canada, the U.K. and many other countries, and you are purchasing an illegal product. Very likely it will be seized by customs and you’ll never even see it!
To top off all this scummy behavior, the name of this product, Adipren, sounds an awful lot like Adipex — which is the prescription diet drug phentermine. Coincidence? I think not.
While I’ve always been an fan of ephedra-based fat burners, that is not the issue here. For good or bad, ephedra use has now been banned in the US (Canadians can obtain products that contain no more than 8mg ephedra per serving), and this product is illegal.
Additionally the company producing it has no ethics. As a consumer, you should always purchase from well-known brands with reputations to uphold. That’s your biggest protection.
