Zipfizz is a hoodia based weight loss supplement targeting its already growing audience of energy drink obsessed dieters. Zipfizz was previously known for its 10 calorie energy mixes meant to provide 4-6 hours of energy. But now, Zipfizz wants to sell diet pills too, promising to suppress appetite, burn fat, and provide you with one of the most comprehensive formulas to hit the market yet.
Ingredients & How Zipfizz Works
Zipfizz ingredients include Chromium 150mcg, Nopal cactus (leaf) 200mg, Caffeine anhydrous 200mg, Green tea extract (camellia sinensis (leaf) (40%, supplying EGCG, polyphenols and caffeine) 75mg, Hoodia gordonii (20:1 extract) 200mg. Proprietary Blend 585mg: Garcinia cambogia extract (fruit & rind, standardized for 60% (-) hydroxycitric acid), Coleus forskohlii (10% forskohlin), L-carnitine, Glucomannan, Phaseolamin, Rhodiola rosea extract (root) (3% rosavins).
The Effectiveness of Zipfizz
Zipfizz uses a mix of proprietary blends and individually listed amounts, and it even claims to be “recommended” by a medical doctor. But bottom line: the ingredients are the thing that really matters. Zipfizz has clinically proven ingredients. There’s no doubt about that. Zipfizz uses clinically proven ingredients like glucomannan, coleus forskohlii, green tea, and caffeine with varying benefits such as fat burning, appetite suppression, and lean muscle support.
But apparently, Zipfizz took lessons from a lot of successful products before it. A lot of big name products do exactly what Zipfizz does. The idea is to save money and make huge profits, no matter the cost. So yes, Zipfizz does use clinically proven ingredients. But it uses only a fraction of the clinically proven amounts.
While caffeine for example requires only 400mg, Zipfizz uses 200mg. And likewise, the largest amount of garcinia cambogia Zipfizz could possibly use is about 585mg, and that’s if you took out all of the other ingredients in Zipfizz’s proprietary blend. Garcinia cambogia requires at least 1500mg.
Is Zipfizz Safe?
Zipfizz does have caffeine, like a lot of other Zipfizz products and other popular weight loss pills and energy drinks. So it might cause jitters, insomnia, headaches, nausea, a racing heartbeat, and other side effects. But at the time of this review, there are no other apparent side effects or risks.
Zipfizz presents itself as a safe alternative. I don’t know about that. Zipfizz seems pretty typical to me. It looks a lot like some of the most popular products that have popped up year after year for the past 20 years or so. But in this case, typical is not all good. Yes, it has some clinically proven ingredients. But it doesn’t have enough of anything for real results.
