What is Leptoprin?
If you’re looking to lose weight and are looking at the variety of weight loss tablets on the market, you have probably come across the names Leptoprin and Leptopril. While it’s easy to get these two mixed up and you may become confused, the two are actually one in the same.
Leptoprin is the original supplement that was sold by A.G. Waterhouse. When it was originally marketed, there were 2 forms of Leptoprin available: Leptoprin, that contained no stimulants; and Leptoprin-SF, that had a stimulant added.
In 2007, there were drastic changes made to the company and to the product and the stimulant version was no longer available. Leptopril is the generic version of Leptoprin without the stimulant and is made by the same company, only to a different consumer base.
There is a long list of ingredients in Leptoprin and these include:
- rice flour
- Vitamin B-6
- acetylsalicylic acid
- green tea leaf extract
- green coffee bean
- Schizonepeta tenuifolia
- Coleus Forskohlii root
- Ma huang extract (ephedrine alkaloids)
While this list may sound like official and effective medicinal ingredients, most of them are ineffective for weight loss and some of them can even cause some serious problems and side effects. The green tea and green coffee bean both have caffeine in them and caffeine is also then added.
While this won’t do anything to help you lose weight, it may make you feel jittery, anxious, give you a dry mouth sensation, and you may also begin to have trouble sleeping.
The Ma huang extract is proven to be effective in suppressing the appetite and helping one lose weight, however there have been serious claims made by the FDA suggesting that taking them can cause a heart attack, stroke, irregular heart rate, and even sudden death.
Leptoprin – only for seriously overweight people
It’s also very important to understand that Leptoprin is not recommended for the casual dieter, or those who are looking to lose just a few pounds. The supplement is intended to be used only by those who are severely overweight, want to lose at least 20 pounds or more, and have a Body Mass Index (BMI) greater than 27.
This fact alone indicates that this is a very serious supplement and that it should be treated as such. If you are significantly overweight and still want to find out more about Leptoprin and want to visit their website for more information, you’ll be very disappointed at what you find.
Leptoprin – one of the most expensive supplements!
While it’s easy to order Leptoprin through the official website, finding testimonials of those who have tried the supplement or finding any clinical information on the drug is not. Any reputable manufacturer of a weight loss supplement should have this information and be willing to display it clearly on their official website.
In addition to all of this Leptoprin is one of the most expensive weight loss supplements on the market, costing $153 for 120 capsules, which is approximately a month’s supply. For the cost and the lack of results, as well as the dangers that the drug might possess, Leptoprin is not recommended for those looking for a good weight loss product.
