Leptopril Fat Burner Review
At first glance Leptopril, produced by Generix Labs, appears to be a complete and total rip-off of the Leptoprin fat burner, produced by A.G. Waterhouse (AKA Klein Becker and a zillion other names).
However, a BBB search reveals that Generix Labs just happens to share a business address, 5742 Harold Gatty Dr, Salt Lake City, UT, with Basic Research, LLC, as well as all the other “limited liability companies” listed in the FTC press release linked above. In other words, the same less-than-ethical folks behind Leptoprin are flogging their own “competing product.” Sneaky, that.
Actually, “were” is a better term than “are,” as Leptoprin appears to have – in the immortal words of John Cleese – “…run down the curtain and joined the choir invisible.” Leptopril, however remains.
What’s in Leptopril? The site doesn’t say. For what it’s worth, that’s Red Flag #1. Even if Leptopril wasn’t connected to Basic Research LLC, that fact alone would be sufficient reason to leave the page and continue searching for alternatives. Only two hints are given:
- “A: Subjects taking the active Leptopril compound lost more than twice as much as subjects on the same diet program, but who took a placebo. The two-month randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial found that the active Leptopril compound produced substantial weight loss in overweight individuals when combined with a sensible, low-calorie eating plan. The substantial weight loss is postulated to be due to the ability of CAE to inhibit both glucose absorption and the activity of the enzyme glucose-6-phosphatase.”
- “Leptopril is a powerful stimulant-based weight control compound intended for otherwise healthy people who are significantly overweight. People who have hypertension, high blood pressure, diabetes, heart or prostate trouble, who are sensitive to stimulants, caffeine, or stimulant-based supplements, or any other weight-loss compound, should not take Leptopril.”
Only those well versed in supplement ingredients would “get” that #1 is green coffee bean extract and #2 is caffeine – either anhydrous or one of several caffeine-containing herbal extracts (such as guarana).
News Flash: green coffee bean extract is a promising weight loss ingredient, but – as our review explains – there’s no good evidence that it’s a miracle worker. But if you’re interested in experimenting with it, there are plenty of less expensive or risky ways of doing so. Most reliable discount retailers, like iHerb.com, Bodybuilding.com, Swanson, etc. carry high quality, standardized, reasonably priced green coffee bean products. And – while we love our caffeine – this ingredient can be found in any local drug or grocery store for less than US $5.00.
Red Flag #2 is the price. NO over-the-counter weight loss supplement is worth $75.00 (excuuuuse me… $74.99!). You can buy a good product like Lean System 7 for half of that – and it comes with an iron-clad money back guarantee. iSatori is a well known, established company with an “A+” rating from the Better Business Bureau. Generix Labs, on the other hand, has an “F” rating – need I say more?
It’s not often that you’ll see us giving an automatic “thumbs down” to a product, but when it’s produced by a company in the Basic Research, LLC network, we don’t hesitate. According to the US Federal Trade Commission, the “brain trust” behind these companies have…
- fabricated clinical trial results;
- made completely unsubstantiated claims which could not be validated by any research;
- falsely claimed that one of its founders, Daniel Mowrey, is a medical doctor.
Would you like to do business with this company? Would you like to keep piling money into the coffers of those who could care less about you?
I think not.
