Prescopodene Review: America’s Most Powerful Diet Pill? Really?

Prescopodene Review: America’s Most Powerful Diet Pill? Really?

The Prescopodene retailers make some pretty outrageous claims about their product. Here’s a brief excerpt…

“…suppressing your appetite in 7-10 minutes… turning your body into a “fat evaporator” through the powerful heat cycling effects of thermogenesis… and adding a metabolic boost so dynamic that your body burns fat hour by hour, day by day, without any effort.”

The best part — if you believe the Prescopodene claims — is that this product’s miraculous “fat-evaporating” powers are validated by a 6 month clinical trial. Wow! Sounds great! Where do I sign up?

Well, hold on a second. Doesn’t it seem to be just a bit “too amazing” that the makers of Prescopodene have been able to accomplish what big pharma, with all its zillions of dollars, has been unable to do? Create a product that “burns fat like a laser” without any effort?

And isn’t it funny this company is making exactly the sort of claims both the Federal Trade Commission and Health Canada warn against here, pointing out that they are not reflective of the realities of weight loss?

Let’s have a look at the clinical study, because frankly, my “spider senses” are tingling.

Hmmm. This isn’t good.

First off, although a “study” is presented on the Prescopodene web site, I couldn’t find it listed in the PubMed database, or anywhere else for that matter. So it doesn’t appear to be published in a peer-reviewed journal, where its conclusions and methodology can be examined and critiqued by like-minded professionals. At best, it’s an in-house study that has no independent research to verify its conclusions.

Additionally, Dr. Robert Johnson, the M.D. referenced on the web site as “testing” Prescopodene does not have his name on the “clinical study.” And the institute he works for? “The Obesity Research Clinic” is about as generic as it gets. Heck, a search on Google for “obesity research clinic” yields over 200 results. I ask… which “Obesity Research Clinic”, and where? It’s all a bit too suspicious for my liking.

However, since I’m not a trained scientist, I decided to ask Elissa, our resident scientist, for her opinion. Here’s what she said…

So “Dr. Robert Johnson” is an M.D. – AND a Ph.D? Ok, there are some truly ambitious folks who are both M.D.s and Ph.D.s – but they’re relatively rare…and you can be darn sure any M.D. who also has a doctorate isn’t seeing patients individually in a clinic setting. He’d be an administrator.

In addition, if he were a real person, the location of the clinic would be highly relevant – it would add credibility. “Dr. Johnson” would want this info included too – it would be good for his clinic. Yet this info is missing…I wonder why?

Point being, with a generic personal and clinic name; and no business address, “Dr. Johnson” is untraceable.

Same deal with the so-called “clinical study.” Any direct info that would enable someone to track this study down, such as the journal, issue, publication date, page numbers, etc., is missing.

Likewise, there’s no institutional affiliation(s) for the authors of the paper. This is standard-issue stuff that ALWAYS accompanies a genuine, scientific paper – even an “in-house” one. Science is about transparency and accountability: if you make it public, then you open yourself to critique and comment by the community. Period. Anonymity is NOT an option.

That this info is omitted is reason enough to be suspicious – very, suspicious. One omission could be an oversight… multiple omissions represent a pattern.

There are other, more subtle issues that send my “BS meter” off the charts.

1. In addition to the fact that the study itself can’t be found (outside the ad), none of the study authors show up in a PubMed search for other obesity research. Yet their names are attached to a weight loss study on 873 obese subjects!

That’s a hyooooge number of subjects for a study: it’s on a scale used for high-level drug research. It would almost certainly be a hospital/clinic-based multi-center trial…so you’d think only researchers with known, well-established obesity research credentials would be qualified to conduct a study of that size. It takes a lot of detailed planning, tight organization and institutional access to control a study of this magnitude.

So it’s quite strange to see – not one – but FOUR untraceable authors (there also appears to be a fifth author, as the initials “T.D” appear, but are not attached to a last name…rather sloppy, if you ask me).

2. This would an insanely expensive study, too. How did they measure “caloric reduction” without analyzing detailed food diaries? How did they determine “metabolic increase” without performing indirect calorimetry? How did they determine body fat percentage changes to 2 decimal places without DEXA?

We’re talking big $$$ here, for trained personnel and specialized equipment. So who funded it? I’ve yet to see ANY dietary supplement company bankroll a study of this magnitude and complexity. This is “Big Pharma” territory. There are also some peculiarities in the data, as well as in the way the data is reported, that make me question the validity of this study – assuming an actual study was even performed. Quite honestly, there are so many irregularities packed into that abstract that I’m tempted to believe the study it describes is more “science fiction” than “science.”

Phew! It’s isn’t looking too good for Prescopodene (if you didn’t understand all of what Elissa was saying above don’t worry; all it really means is that this “study” does not look authentic).

But what about the ingredient profile? Well, as you’ll see when I breakdown the ingredients, there is nothing in Prescopodene that would facilitate the sort of results advertised on the web site. Of course there’s also the problem that the dosage of each ingredient is not revealed so there’s no way to assess its potency or the value it adds to the formula.

1. Ascorbic acid: This is plain old vitamin C. The advertising claims it “removes toxic compounds that are released when fat is metabolized.” This statement, I’m afraid is not based on anything resembling fact.

2. “Pyridoxine HCP” [sic]: What the heck is “Pyridoxine HCP?” No idea. While it sounds high-tech and sciency, it’s almost certainly a typo: no doubt it’s pyridoxine HCl, a common supplemental form of vitamin B6. And yes, this vitamin is required for the proper utilization of macronutrients, but unless you suffer a deficiency, supplementation is not going to result in any more noticeable weight loss than taking a regular brand vitamin blend.

3. Green tea: It’s true: green tea is one of the shining bright lights in the weight loss supplement world (you can read the full review of green tea here). There’s a catch though; it needs to be present in a significant enough dosage, and standardized for the correct amount of critical catechins and polyphenols.

Does Prescopodene contain a strong enough dose? Who knows? That information is not revealed. Nonetheless, I highly doubt it. One of the issues facing any product that contains a pile of ingredients is simply one of logistics; you can only fit a limited amount of ingredient into the small number of medium-sized capsules that most people can easily tolerate.

The more ingredients a product contains, the less likely it is to contain a dosage high enough to elicit any effect (there are exceptions of course; ingredients that only need to be present in microgram amounts, like certain vitamins and minerals).

4. Advantra Z ® (Citrus aurantium extract, standardized for synephrine): The Prescopodene advertising material states that this ingredient…

“Stimulates Beta 3 receptors, which breaks down fat, increases energy and metabolic rate, and creates thermogenesis.”

Unfortunately, the clinical research performed on synephrine for weight loss has been far from “glowing” in its assessment. One study (Am J Cardiol. 2004 Nov 15;94(10):1359-61) on the “Safety and efficacy of citrus aurantium for weight loss” concluded…

“An extensive search of MEDLINE, EMBASE, BIOSIS, and the Cochrane Collaboration Database identified only 1 eligible randomized placebo controlled trial, which followed 20 patients for 6 weeks, demonstrated no statistically significant benefit for weight loss, and provided limited information about the safety of the herb.”

More information on synephrine (including additional clinical references) can be found here!

5. DMAE: A precursor to choline, a full review of DMAE is available here. DMAE is an antioxidant and it can help elevate mood. However, I would challenge the makers of Prescopodene on their claim that it “increases physical energy.” The only study that I’m aware of that shows DMAE to have any benefit in this regard occurred when it was combined with ginseng and used as a secondary ingredient (see Clin Ther. 1991 May-Jun;13(3):373-82).

6. Yerba Mate: Does it increase energy, promote thermogenesis and suppress appetite as advertised? Well, it does contain caffeine, which is a well-known thermogenic. But studies showing yerba mate to be an effective weight loss agent have been, well… hardly conclusive.

In one study, yerba mate combined with guarana and damiana (neither of which are included in this formula) resulted in delayed gastric emptying and an increased feeling of satiety (see J Hum Nutr Diet. 2001 Jun;14(3):243-50). One animal study showed that it reduced the obesity incurred by a high fat diet (Arch Biochem Biophys. 2008 Feb 26).

On the other hand this study (Am J Clin Nutr. 2004 Apr;79(4):529-36), which examined the clinical evidence for several “natural” weight loss aids — including yerba mate — concluded…

The evidence for most dietary supplements as aids in reducing body weight is not convincing. None of the reviewed dietary supplements can be recommended for over-the-counter use.

So while it’s possible further studies may vindicate mate as a weight loss agent, the current evidence does not support the statements made by the retailers of Prescopodene.

7. Pantothenic Acid: Vitamin B5. Again, it can be argued that various vitamins can help you lose weight in that they help put your body in an optimal state to do so. But does vitamin B5 burn fat consistent with the Prescopodene sales pitch? Uh, no.

8. Magnesium: Involved in more than 300 cellular reactions, magnesium is an element of vital importance. It’s common in legumes, leafy green veggies, nuts and meat but is probably a smart addition to any supplement, as the majority of people fail to meet the daily RDA for magnesium. However, it won’t “melt fat” without exercise.

9. Ginger Root: According to the Prescopodene advertising material, ginger root “decreases appetite and increases number of calories burned.” Ginger contains gingerols, which are chemically related to capsaicin. There’s some who speculate ginger may also posses metabolism-boosting characteristics, but there’s little data to support that theory at this time.

Some small animal studies performed on zingerone (a component of ginger) have been positive for weight loss (Yakugaku Zasshi. 2008 Aug;128(8):1195-201) albeit the dosage used (170 mg/kg) is too high to be transferred into humans (a Human Equivalent Dose for a 180 lbs. person would be over 2g a day… of pure zingerone, no less).

Ginger also seems to accelerate gastric emptying… the opposite of the sort of thing dieters want (Eur J Gastroenterol Hepatol. 2008 May;20(5):436-40).

10. Tyrosine: Weight loss supplement retailers have been including tyrosine in their formulas for years because it is a precursor to the thyroid hormone thyroxine (also known as T4). Supplementation therefore, may have a positive effect on thyroid hormone levels, which may contribute to an increased metabolic rate. To date however, there is no reliable clinical evidence to indicate this is the case. Be that as it may, human studies on supplemental tyrosine use multi-gram doses, so there’s very likely not enough tyrosine in Prescopodene to make a difference.

11. Cocoa Extract: Confusing, because we’re not told what this is standardized for. Cocoa extract contains a series of xanthines, or “caffeine-like” chemicals. It also contains PEA or phenylethylamine, a amphetamine-like compound that retailers claim boosts mood and encourages feelings of euphoria. Unfortunately, PEA is metabolized by the enzyme monamine oxidase (MAO), so it’s unlikely supplemental PEA actually increases PEA levels in the brain.

12. Grape Seed Extract: A very powerful antioxidant, and a great source of proanthocyanidins, preliminary animal studies demonstrate grape seed extract’s ability to inhibit the growth of prostate cancer cells (see Zhonghua Nan Ke Xue. 2008 APR;14(4):331-3), as well an ability to exhibit cardio-protective effects (J Cardiovasc Pharmacol. 2007 Nov;50(5):503-9).

But as an appetite suppressant? Or an agent to “stimulate the breakdown of fat for energy?” I couldn’t find any research to validate this claim by the retailer.

Bottom line?

Prescopodene is an extremely over-priced, “kitchen sink” supplement. This is not a ground-breaking, revolutionary compilation. The “clinical study” is suspect, and the claims are not reflective of anything resembling reality. It’s no surprise therefore, that we recommend you steer clear of this product.

Summary of Prescopodene
  • Contains healthful ingredients.
  • Contains green tea extact.
  • Probably a decent stimulant/energizer.
  • Ingredient amounts are not disclosed.
  • Weight loss claims are exaggerated.
  • So-called “clinical trial” is suspect.

  1. Hi Guys,

    It looks like I’m the first to write a review on Prescopodene…actually it’s my first ever review on any product ever so I hope you all like it:)

    Anyway, let me first start by saying that I found Prescopodene to be a very good weight loss supplement. I think the claims on the website were probably a bit over exaggerated (I think it said somewhere you could lose 30 pounds in 30 days), but it did certainly help me lose a very good amount of weight. I didn’t lose 30 pounds in 1 month, but I did end up losing 37 lbs over 7 weeks – which isn’t half bad.

    The most noticeable benefit I had was that I ate a lot less food than normal. I am not sure if my metabolism boosted like they say as I have no idea how I am meant to measure my metabolism speed, but I can be 100% sure I ate less food. So whatever they put in to stop you eating obviously does a decent job.

    Also, I have a Tanita Body fat scale. I’m not sure how accurate it is as it’s about 4 years old, but when I started I was 41% and when I finished I was 33%. I know I have to keep losing more weight cos my goal is to get down to 25%. For the moment I am going away on holiday for 2 months so I wasn’t sure if I could take the pills with me and I didn’t want customs to steal them from me so I am just going to stop till I get back. But when I get back I will start again. Hopefully I can lose another more pounds and lose more body fat.

    I do recommend this product if you want a good pill for weight loss. I have already told a few of my close friends (they were asking anyway). It’s a bit hard to hide weight loss, not that I’d want to hide it anyway:)

    I am not really sure what else to say, so thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed my review.
    Best wishes to you all 🙂

  2. I used prescopodene too and I tell you what — this baby works! I couldn’t believe it worked because nothing usually works for me. If you’re anything like me you’ve probably tried at least 10 different diet pills (atleast I have anyway) and none of them ever worked. This one did work though, thanks goodness.

    Look, I’m not going to say it was only the pills that helped me lose weight, because I did a 15 minute walk 3 times/week so I’m sure that would have helped. But you know what, I had already been doing a 15 minute walk 3times/week and I hadn’t lost any weight. And once I added Prescopodene to my walking routine I lost 5.5 lbs the very first week. So obviously adding the pill to my walks helped a lot. I say a combination of walking and this supplement is what really did the trick.

    Overall I lost 22 pounds, and now I’m down to 147. So I suppose I wasn’t too overweight to begin with, so I can only imagine it would work even better for a larger person.

    Very good product and it’s well worth the money

    Lots a LOVE

  3. This pill simply does not work! I attempted to contact Prescopone’s Customer service and after the third attempt, yes the third attempt! i finally got a response. Louise from Prescopone simply would not refund my money. I have found this product simply does not work and Prescopone’s Customer Service is simply ver poor to say the least.

  5. This product did not work for me at all and I followed their instructions very clearly. It took them over a week to provide the product so by the time I got it I did it for 3 weeks and I didn’t have any results I decided to return it BUT the address they supplied was overseas. They gave me an extension of time to post it back and still claimed my product did not make it back in time which could be a total lie. So I had no product and no refund. I was excited to try the product and all I got was utter disapointment over the product and customer service.

  6. Have been on this product for just over a week, and nothing havent lost a thing, so i have contacted them in order to get a refund, and was told somebody will respond within 48 hrs. Interesting to see if they respond or if they stall for time so the 30 days lapses.

    Post a Reply
  7. Basically this 30 day no questions asked refund is a joke. Your 30 days begins from when you order the product, it is interesting to note that it is shipped from New Zealand, so by the time you get it, trial it and decide if you wish to return it, (and it has to go back to New Zealand) of which you are only able to claim for ONE bottle, you have very little time. in order to ensure that the article is received and signed for it costs the same amount to post as a bottle costs to buy( yes i checked), and they want you to say why you want to return it !!and in capital letters it stated that even one day later than the 30 days, there will be no refund. So people give it a big miss

  12. Hi Team Fat Burner:)

    I used the PRescopodene product about 6 months ago and I found it was quite effective. It really helped reduce my cravings for junk food. I didn’t lose as much as they claimed, (they say 5kg/week) – I think that is way off. I only lost 9kg in 2 months so those numbers they provide are a bit exageerated me thinks. I can’t say if it works for everyone, but it did work for me fairly well.

    Thank you

  13. Hi,

    I tried the product and lost 3kg the first month but I asked for a refund anyway as I was expecting to lose 10kg or more. They gave me a full refund no questions asked as they say on the site. I’m not sure what the other people are complaining about here about not getting refunds. I just sent an email and they told me to return the bottles, and they gave me a full refund. It was a piece of cake. And the person who wrote this “in order to ensure that the article is received and signed for it costs the same amount to post as a bottle costs to buy” — only if you’re sending from the moon my friend. It cost me under $9 and I sent from Canberra. I got my refund within a week from when I sent the bottles back to them. If you are going to make a complaint atleast make it factual and don’t make up silly numbers. Look, I give the product 3.5 stars since it helped me lose some weight – but not enough. I give the service 5 stars as they did everything they say that they would, ie: gave me a refund without any hassles. Cheers.!

    • Editor`s comments: Jimmy: I think the person you are referring to is talking about sending it registered mail, where the person on the other end has to sign to receive the package. It`s the only way to really confirm receipt, and it is much, much more expensive than regular mail…

  15. I heard of this Prescopodene through a friend who used to be as big as an elephant (exaggeratedly speaking..but she used to be fat nonetheless.) She kind of convinced me of looking into it and even gave it a try for at least one month. I realized, not bad at all. It isn’t a scam if it works right?

  17. Its good to know that you have gained good results out of using Prescopodene. I’ve used it for 3 months and lost a huge deal of my excess weight.

    Post a Reply
  18. I have always been cautious when it comes to purchasing stuff online. This would explain why I do a lot of online research for products that interest me.

    Gaining weight is not a joke. When you start gaining a few pounds you feel like you can easily lose them. That was my mentality for almost a year. I didn’t realize that I’m 20lbs overweight.

    I believe in taking calculated risks and I even read scambook.com. I just realized that almost every product has a complaint written against them in this website.

    Since I’ve done my homework, I took a risk by purchasing the Buy 2 Get 1 Deal. I combined it with the colon cleansing product. I had to bombard the live chat and email team of this company about the best practices in taking these supplements.

    I’ve set realistic expectations so I don’t expect dramatic results in a month’s time. My goal at that time was to lose at least 2lbs per week. I fully understand that I need to imbibe a healthy lifestyle. I made sure that I get enough exercise and sleep. I also adjusted my usual food portions. I made sure I only had 1.5 cup of rice. As much as possible I avoided oily food, pork and beef. I focused on high-fiber food, veggies and fruits. For protein, I made sure I have chicken and fish.

    I noticed that a lot of people don’t drink a lot of water. In my situation, I made sure I always consume at least 10 glasses a day. The verdict of a month’s hard work and drinking these diet pills is a favorable 7lbs or approximately 3kilos of lost weight.

    I hope that I can inspire people to commit themselves not just on diet pills like Prescopodene but on having an overall healthy lifestyle. Obviously, there are no shortcuts and there are no perfect diet pills. I’m speaking based on my experience with this diet pill. Since it already worked well with my situation. I plan to continue what I’ve already started. It’s easier to complain about supplements that don’t work. We need to dig deep and must accept that it boils down to one’s dedication, commitment and motivation in reaching his or her goals – in this case, losing weight. This diet pill worked well with my determination.

    • Nikki, we’re really glad you have been successful in losing weight. Unfortunately, ALL of your results can be attributed to the diet and exercise changes you have implemented into your lifestyle, and not the pill.

      We’d also be curious to hear what sort “research” you did that made you decide Prescopodene was worthwhile trying? Reading testimonials (which are completely unverifiable and can easily be faked and aren’t evidence if they are not) or reviews endorsed or written by the company and its affiliates is not research. When we looked at Prescopodene, we found the ingredient profile tepid at best and the clinical data “supporting” the weight loss claims weak to non-existent.

  19. I didn’t have much losses but I’m still happy. it’s just my first month and I’d love to give it more some time. After all, it wasn’t as bad as it’s being reported on some reviews. I’m at ease to know it works.

    • Just wanted to let our readers know that in the last month and a half, we’ve seen a HUGE increase in comments on Prescopodene, both here, and over on Real-Customer-Comments.com. This increase is incredibly suspect for two reasons; in every case the comments are overwhelmingly positive, and two, products like Prescopodene rarely generate enough interest to bring in any but the occasional piece of visitor feedback. A sudden influx of overwhelmingly positive comments is often indicative of a manipulative promotional campaign to change the public’s perception of a product. Of course, we can’t prove this, so we are approving most (but not all) of the comments we receive. But we’d be remiss on our duty if we did not inform you of this.

  20. Thanks Admin! I’ve done a lot of online research and just compared the diet pills that resonate well with me. I must admit that it can be confusing at times since I got to read different reviews from different sources.

    I believe that the internet offers a plethora of information. Some useful and some junk. I took a risk in trying Prescopodene and was ready to refute the number of testimonials for this product. Unfortunately, it did work based on the expectations I set for myself.

    I cannot just give all the credits/praises to this diet pill since I did my share in committing to my weight loss program. It’s a combination of Prescopodene, Diet, Exercise and Lifestyle Change.

    Some may even call it a placebo effect. I’m just one of those unknown and real customers that would like to share his/her experience with this product. Don’t persecute me because of this favorable review. I assure you that if I find something unusual with this product then you’ll see me posting a follow up review.

    • Nikki… you still didn’t tell us what sort of research you did. Reading “reviews” is not research if those reviews do not correlate the supporting (or lack thereof) clinical evidence for the individual ingredients against the claims made by the manufacturers of the product. If you had read a real review for this product, you wouldn’t have bought it because the claims are not supported by the scientific evidence.

      > I cannot just give all the credits/praises to this diet pill since I did my share in committing to my weight loss program. It’s a combination of Prescopodene, Diet, Exercise and Lifestyle Change.

      Actually Nikki, because there is more than one variable here – 3 of which can contribute to weight loss by themselves – there is no way you can accurately attribute ANY success to Prescopodene. The only way that would be possible would be run clinical study where one group of people change their lifestyles, eat well and exercise, and one group changes their lifestyle, eat well, exercise and takes Prescopodene. If the latter group experienced more weight loss than the former, then you could make such an assertion. Otherwise… not so much.

      And whether you think it worked or not is immaterial, since that can be entirely attributed to the placebo effect.

      Lastly… in the last several weeks, we’ve received a TON of feedback for this product – all of it overwhelmingly positive. The feedback that *might* be genuine, we posted, because there is no way for us to know for sure if all the comments are fabricated. The other stuff – the ridiculous claims that were obviously manipulated, we trashed. The point being; Prescopodene doesn’t normally generate a lot of feedback and interest from our visitors. When we see a relatively obscure product suddenly receiving a ton of outrageously positive feedback (most of it looking like it was written by the same person) we know that the majority of them are being faked. No product – not even prescription drugs work that well, and there’s certainly nothing in Prescopodene that would generate such results.

      So no… we’re not “persecuting” you, but we are not entirely convinced that your comments are genuine.

  21. I am suprised nobody connected these results to the “Placebo” effects, created by the media/brainwashing. As we know just about anything we believe in works! It is called “mindpower”. According to some study i’ve read somewhere, if we wouldn’t believe in the effectiveness of medications, they would be totally useless.

    Sincerely

    Franko

  22. I would like to see how Prescopodene would work for me. I have gained weight during the past months and i really wanted to get back to my old self. I guess the only way to see if it really works is to try it right?

  23. Prescopodene works for me amidst my desk-bound lifestyle. I used to eat a lot but I can say when I started taking the pill my cavings don’t come as often and I lost weight due to less food intake. Can’t deny the fact that it resulted from taking the pill so I say it works.

  24. I don’t want to comment about prescopodene. I came across this page, and found it revolting that the admin person here is so biased. You open up a page about this pill Prescopodene, but you make it seem like you negate every positive comment about it. Yet, you do nothing about people who leave negative comments. The admin here is clearly against the pill, so leaving positive comments here will end up being trashed by the admin. Just a thought.

    • Editor’s comments: Here’s a thought Alicia; why don’t you think before you open your mouth? How much do you really know about us and what we do? Did it ever occur to you that companies routinely recruit people to leave glowing feedback on popular forums and blog posts in order to give the impression a product works really well? Did you know there are places you can go to hire people to do so – for as little as couple of nickels per comment? Did it occur to you that with 2 sites in the supplement niche (one dating back 13 years), hundreds of products reviewed and thousands of “testimonials” viewed, we have a pretty good idea what appears genuine, and what does not – certainly a better idea than you, who has made a flash judgement based on one product and no research?

      Yeah, we didn’t think so. Thanks for contributing so much to the discussion.

  25. Hello Editor. I agree with Alicia. Why don’t you think before you open your mouth too? You are rude, and tactless. We are certainly aware of those monkey business. Do you think people who visit this site are that stupid to not distinguish what’s fake? You are underestimating your visitors, it does not mean you’re an editor, you know-it-all. Duh! Let anyone speak their mind, and let your visitors do the judgement, not you. You facilitate, that’s what you should do. If not, better change the name of this site of MY-COMMENTS.com. So ironic, Real-customer-comments huh? Why? Have you been a REAL customer to comment on this pill?? Please post this.

    • Meg… EPIC FAIL. Reading comprehension FAIL. Have a look at the comments on this page. There are at best a few, and they are polite and helpful – except for our response to Alicia. Frankly, we’re happy to carry out a discussion in a civil manner, until people who haven’t taken two seconds to learn what this site about – you have not either – start questioning our motives and bias in a less than civil manner. How many comments have you read to come up with conclusion that we are rude and tactless? And why is that applied to us, but not Alicia?

      And did you not read our response to her comments? Most comments are not “real”. They are often fabricated by supplement companies who are trying to swindle your out of your money. Or the companies who sell the products are the same ones in control of the feedback being posted, since they own the “review” sites themselves. If you had taken two seconds to do a little reading before passing judgement you would understand that in the case of this site, “real” means “genuine”. Not “every single bogus fabricated testimonial gets posted so we can help certain supplement companies make money off the backs of vulnerable folks who want to lose a few pounds.”

      That’s not what “real” means to us.

      It also means we don’t just press the approve button to every comment that comes in. And guess what? It’s our web site, so you don’t get to us what our role should be. DUH!

      Yes, we get it; some people get a little defensive when we tell them that most of 8 lbs they lost in the first week was mostly water weight, but the truth is – someone has to counter the “10 pounds in 10 days” fairy-godmother stuff the retailers of some weight loss products would like you to believe.

      But you were too busy being offended and sharing your uninformed opinion to care. And hey! Guess what? There are plenty of other web sites – bogus ones that is – that will indulge your need for a make believe world, where every product is magical, generates tons of positive feedback, and melts fat without you having to change your diet and lifestyle. That’s where you should be hanging out. Bye-bye!

  26. There is no happy medium with prescopodene. People love it or hate it
    Make me think it really is not that good. My bottle arrived a few days a go
    But I don’t know if I will use it.
