Lipo 6 Fat Burner Side Effects

Lipo 6 Fat Burner Side Effects

fat burning

Lipo 6 has 6 ingredients with proven side effects. 9 of the ingredients are 100% natural and may have allergic reactions, but do not have any side effects due to unnatural elements. Glycerin, hypromellose, purified water, fd&c blue 1, fd&c red 40, fd&c yellow 6, are 6 ingredients with proven serious side effects.

Glycerin can be made synthetically or extracted naturally, tastes sweet, used in soaps and skincare products and has side effects of burning, itching, redness and skin irritation (Price). It does not mention if the ingredient is the synthetic or natural version since the other ingredients in Lipo 6 are both natural and synthetic. The natural version has side effects of itching, burning, redness, and skin irritation. According to the Mayo Clinic, natural glycerin has 7 side effects (Mayo Clinic):

  • Confusion
  • Irregular Heartbeat
  • Headache
  • Nausea Vomiting
  • Diarrea
  • Dizziness
  • Dryness of Mouth or Increased Thirst
Definitely a credible source highlighting serious side effects for a person's heart, stomach, and head. I imagine the synthetic version will have even worse side effects. 

Hypromellose is also known as hypromellose methylcellulose which is used to treat dry eyes, eye irritations, and can cause redness, change in vision, puffy eyelids, dry eyes, and swollen eyelids (PeaceHealth; A product that is used to treat ailments in the eyes, along with side effects in the eye area, might not be the best ingredient to inject into your body.

Purified Water - Extremely harmful to the body by helping people become mineral deficient, it can cause premature death, cause very serious calcium issues within the body, digestive issues, increased risk of heart disease, forces the body to remove minerals from the skeleton, effects the PH balance of your blood and more (University of Rochester Medical Center; McCauley)

Purified water is a harmful addition to any product. This ingredient does not sound like the possibility of side effects happening, instead, it seems something negative will definitely happen to the body. Not in extreme ways all the time, but definitely some negative effect of the body's normal routine. 

FD&C Blue 1 - A study in mice found the dye to have a significant increase in kidney tumors, showed possible future neurotoxicity (serious brain and nervous system impairments due to exposure to toxic substances), and questions of how safe the dye really is for products (National Institutes of Health; Kobylewski and Jacobson). 

Studies revealed FD&C Blue 1 to possibly be a toxic substance. When something has the possibility of being toxic, and has questions whether it is safe or not, it should not be consumed into your body. 

FD&C Red 40 - Helps make chocolate pudding look the way it does, or it would be green, is petroleum based, may affect ADD and ADHD in kids, and reports of "upset stomach, migraines, jitteriness, nervousness, and inability to concentrate after a high intake of Red Dye 40" in kids and adults (Amen Clinics)

FD&C Yellow 6 - Contaminated with benzidine sometimes, can cause cancer, and has been shown to have an abnormal effect on the immune system (Kobylewski)

Lipo 6 Fat Burner Black contains 9 natural ingredients, 5 unnatural, and Glycerin which I am unsure if it is the natural or unnatural version. It might be the unnatural since its grouped together on the bottom with all of the other unnatural ingredients. 

6 lipo 6 fat burner side effects are shown to cause harm to the human body. Taking one of these ingredients alone can cause significant harm to the body. Grouping harmful ingredients together only increases the risks. I think it is safe to assume its possible the harmful ingredients within the product can bring about additional harms not yet learned. Often, harmful ingredients have increased risk for harm when they are combined with other unnatural ingredients, causing adverse reactions. 

Purified water and glycerin both cause serious heart ailments. By taking this product does it increase your risk for heart problems?

Many fat burning products exist that are 100% natural with proven additional benefits for the body besides its weight loss properties.
