Presentation and promises of Lipo-6, Lipo-6 Black Hers, and Lipo-6 Black Intense Ultra Concentré
1. Lipo-6 :
This fat loss formula comes in the form of liquid capsules, which enhance absorption of the ingredients and accelerate the effects of the supplement. Lipo-6 Black is suitable for both men and women, and is intended more for people who already have a healthy lifestyle and very regular physical activity.
Dosage : 2 capsules 30 minutes before breakfast + 2 capsules in the afternoon. For the first two days, take 1 capsule in the morning and 1 in the afternoon, then increase by 1 capsule every 2 days, up to a maximum dose of 4 capsules per day. This is to gradually accustom your body to the formula’s powerful ingredients.
2. Lipo-6 Black Intense Ultra Concentrate:
A similar composition (which we’ll detail later in our article), but more concentrated and intense, boosting thermogenesis and metabolism, increasing energy, and improving appetite control. The effects of Lipo-6 Black Intense Ultra Concentrate are felt from the very first minutes and are long-lasting.

3. Lipo-6 Black Hers :

Dosage : 1 capsule in the morning + 1 capsule in the afternoon, to be taken at least 30 minutes before meals.
Precautions for use of these 3 versions of Lipo-6, which must be strictly observed

The manufacturer of Lipo-6, Lipo-6 Black Hers, and Lipo-6 Black Intense Ultra Concentrate
is the company Nutrex Research which has developed these 3 Lipo-6 fat burners. This firm has been on the market since 2002, but has already made a big impact in the bodybuilding supplement industry. Its president, Jens Ingenohl, is the founder of the German company BMS, which covers a large part of the German market for supplements for bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts.
Now established in the USA with Nutrex, his aim is “to research, develop and introduce only products that are unique, of superior quality, scientifically sound and of real benefit to the consumer”. Nutrex pioneered the introduction of liquid capsules in the sports nutrition industry, with Lipo-6 inaugurating this technology in 2005. In fact, Lipo-6 was voted Product of the Year in 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008.
Ingredients in Lipo-6, Lipo-6 Black Hers, and Lipo-6 Black Intense Ultra Concentrate
Lipo-6 is made up of the following ingredients:
Caffeine anhydrous (200mg/capsule)or dehydrated caffeine. It is recognized for its stimulating and energizing properties. Caffeine not only stimulates thermogenesis and fat burning, but also reduces hunger.
Synephrine (20mg/capsule) : synephrine is the active substance found in citrus aurantium, with similar stimulant, fat-burning and thermogenic effects to ephedrine.
Synthetic guggulsterones (20mg per capsule) : guggulsterone is none other than commiphora mukul, a plant used to lower cholesterol, triglyceride and blood lipid levels.
Yohimbine (3mg per capsule) Yohimbine: a plant with fat-burning and stimulant properties, which acts by increasing adrenalin levels in the body, inhibiting certain processes in fat cells and stopping fat burning. Yohimbine is also known to improve erectile function in men.
Bioperine (5mg per capsule) : Bioperine is the active substance in black pepper. It not only stimulates thermogenesis, but also, and above all, reinforces the effects of the other ingredients in the composition.
Lipo-6 Black Intense Ultra Concentrate
Lipo-6 Black Intense Ultra Concentrate contains some of the same ingredients as classic Lipo-6, namely yohimbine, citrus aurantium and caffeine, plus the following ingredients:
Rauwolscine Rauwolscine: this plant is similar to yohimbine in terms of molecular structure and effects. It acts by indirectly inducing fat loss, increasing the pressure exerted by the body to preserve fat mass, and preventing the body from stopping fat loss. It would appear to be more effective than yohimbine, but more research is needed to validate this information.
Teacrine This substance comes from a special variety of tea, and is said to have the same effects as caffeine, without the side effects. A stimulant substance, it increases energy production by inhibiting adenosine, thus reducing feelings of fatigue, while improving concentration, mood and motivation. It also acts on dopamine.
L-Tyrosine This amino acid is a precursor of appetite-suppressant hormones. It acts on the central nervous system, improving feelings of well-being, reducing fatigue and promoting better appetite control.
The manufacturer does not give the precise dosage of the various ingredients for Lipo-6 Black Intense Ultra Concentrate.
Lipo-6 Black Hers
Lipo-6 Black Hers contains different ingredients from its little buddies, with caffeine, yohimbine and citrus aurantium in common.
Bacopa monnieri Bacopa monnieri: a plant also known as water hyssop, is said to relieve digestive disorders and have tonic virtues.
Vinpocetine : boosts memory and brain metabolism in general.
Zingerone : found in ginger, has a positive effect on thermogenesis.
Note on the combination of caffeine and citrus aurantium
You’ll have noticed that each of the fat-burning supplements listed here combines caffeine with citrus aurantium. It is our duty to inform our readers of the precautions and legislation recommended with regard to these two substances.
Synephrine + caffeine is just as dangerous as the old caffeine + ephedrine combination it is supposed to replace. This new combination can cause serious side effects (tachycardia, cardiac arrest, fibrillation, fainting), and several cases have been reported.
Faced with these dangers, the ANSM (Agence Nationale de Sécurité du Médicament et des Produits de Santé) has passed legislation. Today, the use of citrus aurantium is strictly regulated:
Citrus aurantium is authorized for use in food supplements, but only under certain conditions:
- The amount of p-synephrine ingested must be less than 20 mg per recommended daily dose;
- The label must carry a warning against use by children, pregnant or breast-feeding women, and in the event of anti-hypertensive treatment;
- Caffeine and caffeine sources are not permitted in dietary supplements containing Citrus aurantium L.
(Source: Order of June 24, 2014 establishing the list of plants, other than mushrooms, authorized in food supplements and the conditions of their use.)
