Weight Loss Home > Lipozene

Lipozene is a popular weight loss pill that is derived from the vegetable fiber of a plant called konjac. Like any other fiber product, it works by slowing down the emptying of the stomach and helping you to feel full. The true effectiveness of Lipozene, however, has yet to be determined. Possible side effects may include gas and bloating.

What Is Lipozene?

Lipozene™ is a highly advertised weight loss supplement that contains glucomannan, a type of vegetable fiber from the root of a plant known as konjac (Amorphophallus konjac, to be specific).

Who Makes It?

The supplement is made by Obesity Research Institute.
 

How Does It Work?

Lipozene works like any other fiber product to help with obesity. It is a fiber that is not absorbed into the body (it stays in the digestive tract). Since fiber slows down the emptying of the stomach, it can help people feel full and help keep blood sugar more even. This is probably how it helps people lose weight.
 

Is Lipozene Effective?

Preliminary studies suggest that glucomannan may help with obesity, although more research is necessary.
