Does Lipozene Work?
™ is a weight loss pill
that contains glucomannan
, a natural vegetable fiber obtained from the root of a plant known as konjac (Amorphophallus konjac
). Although Lipozene itself has not been studied, a few studies have evaluated glucomannan and suggest that it may help promote weight loss.
The Results of Glucomannan Studies
Several different studies have evaluated glucomannan for a variety of uses. In general, these studies have suggested that glucomannan is probably safe and effective for these uses. It has long been known that a high-fiber diet can help people lose weight. Fiber tends to help people feel fuller for a longer period of time. Small studies have suggested that glucomannan may be effective for weight loss, although more research is needed.
However, this early promising research does not really match up with the impressive Lipozene claims on various advertisements. These advertisements rely heavily on personal testimonials. Even if it is assumed that these testimonials are genuine and honest and are not paid testimonies, this does not mean that Lipozene really works. The only way to know if a product works is to examine it in studies that are large and adequately designed.
Final Thoughts on the Effectiveness of Lipozene
Early studies suggest that the active ingredient of Lipozene is a promising fiber supplement. However, further research is needed to confirm that Lipozene is indeed effective (and safe) for weight loss.
