DietSpotlight Burn Review
DietSpotlight Burn appears to be a re-branded version of Leptigen brought to market by DietSpotlight. The company first started marketing Leptigen in 2015. They began distributing the same formulation under the Burn label early on in 2017 and continue to market both products.
DietSpotlight have created websites for both products and both of them are are distributed in bottles that contain a 30-day supply of pills and cost $95.90 per pop.
It’s unclear why the company decided to offer an alternate version of their product, but we found several customer complaints that reveal the company used to have a free trial offer that lead people to believe they had been scammed when they subsequently found their cards had been hit with the full price of the pills.
The free trial is no longer offered, but it’s possible sales are still effected from the bad press Leptigen has received in the past. At the time of this review Burn was backed by a 120-day money back guarantee. That’s exceptional, but the pills are so expensive, and offer such limited capabilities, Burn is unlikely to become one of the more popular diet pill products.
How Does DietSpotlight Burn Work
The label lists three benefits:
- Extra energy
- Fat burning
- Weight loss
DietSpotlight Burn used to be available via Amazon and the Amazon sales page states the pills suppress the appetite as well, but this is not mentioned on the official website and the formulation does not contain any ingredients that have proven to be effective for hunger control.
Each Burn capsule provides:
- Meratrim (400mg)
- Green Tea Extract (200mg)
- Natural Caffeine USP (75mg)
- ChroMate: (100mcg)
DietSpotlight Burn Potential
The main ingredient is clearly Meratrim, but it lacks the proven potential of the other ingredients it shares capsule space with. It’s a patented ingredient that contains unspecified amounts of East Indian Globe Thistle (sphaeranthus indicus) and mangosteen (g. mangostana).
DietSpotlight are keen to point out the ingredient’s value as a weight loss provider was put to the test by researchers at the University of California, but the study in question was set up in a way that made weight loss inevitable without the need for supplements.
All 100 study participants lost weight, but they had to commit to a diet that only provided 2000 calories per day.
This is enough to for an average woman to maintain her normal weight and is 500 calories less than an average man needs so the male participants would likely lose weight without the need for exercise. However, all the participants also had to walk for 30 minutes per day.
This would cause an increased calorie burn that would also push the female participants into a calorie deficit state that would require fat burning.
However, green tea is a proven fat burner, as is caffeine, and ChroMate is a chromium provider that has the ability to prevent post-meal insulin and sugar level spikes that may trigger a desire for sweet food.
Customer Testimonials of DietSpotlight Burn
Although there is plenty of customer feedback offered on the official website, it is all positive, and we feel it may have been hand picked. Feedback left at less biased sites is not always so praising.
A few randomly-selected customer comments read:
Potential Side Effects of DietSpotlight Burn
DietSpotlight say some users may find the pills cause them to have a rapid heartbeat and/or headaches. Anyone who experiences negative reactions such as these is advised to cease supplementation.
The Final Evaluation
We cannot say for certain that this product will not work because it contains three very good diet pill ingredients.
The value of the main ingredient (Meratrim) is disputable, but some people appear to have lost weight using DietSpotlight Burn.
However, we have to ask ourselves if the weight loss was more attributable to other factors (diet and exercise).
Certainly the product has already let some users down. There’s a money back guarantee available, but this still an extremely expensive product that does not offer the same levels of support as the top diet pill brands, all of which are much cheaper and have better customer reviews.
We we suggest opting for a product as PhenQ – it is a multiple benefit weight loss product with lots of clinical data and research attached to it.
PhenQ is arguably the most popular diet pill for the US, Australia and mainland Europe.
