Lean Bean Female Fat Burner Review

Lean Bean Female fat BurnerLean Bean is a diet pill designed to help women “harness the power nature” and burn their fat.

The company marketing the product is called Ultimate Health Limited. The registered office is in Leeds, England, but the pills are manufactured in FDA registered facilities located in the USA.

Ultimate Health is a relatively new company, that was first incorporated in 2015, and Lean Bean appears to be their only product. As is often the case with diet pills that are intended for women.

There’s a lot of pink going on. The label on the bottle is predominantly pink and the Lean Bean website has a lot of pink too, but we’re not seeing any ingredients that are likely to make the pills work better for women than men.

Positives: Nice looking brand, good ingredient profile (if a little heavy)

Negatives: Guarantee is misleading.

Use Lean Bean with diet and exercise to:

  • Get rid of cellulite

What is Lean Bean and How Does it Work?

Lean Bean is marketed as a fat burner. Supplements of this kind encourage the body to get to work on its stores of fat and use it as a source of energy or, in the case of thermogenic fat burners, loose calories from the body in the form of heat.

However, the claim that the pills contain 12 of nature’s most effective fat burners is not strictly true. Not all the ingredients have this ability. Glucomannan is a good example. It’s an appetite suppressant. It does not directly encourage the body to begin burning fat.

Key Ingredients

Four capsules provide:

  • Vitamin B6 (3.72mg), Vitamin B12 (6.4ug): B Vitamins help to support a healthy metabolism so most diet pills contain one or more forms of Vitamin B.
  • Chromium (120ug): A mineral that is good for preventing fluctuating blood sugar levels (can trigger hunger).
  • Green coffee (600mg): Green coffee provides a fat burning chemical. It’s called chlorogenic acid and, like chromium, it is also good for keeping blood sugar levels under control.
  • Acai berry (800mg): A nutrient-rich fruit extract that boasts hunger suppressing capabilities and can also give the metabolism a boost and get it burning some extra calories.
  • Green tea extract (200mg): A proven metabolism booster and thermogenic fat burner. Most diet pills contain green tea, so it’s not a surprise to see it here.
  • Turmeric powder (200mg): A versatile spice that can reduce the inflammation that is sometimes caused by obesity.
  • Glucomannan (500mg): A natural fibre that is taken with water and swells up inside the stomach to create a feeling of fullness. It’s a good ingredient, but the recommended dose is 3,000mg per day, so it is hindered here by a low inclusion rate.
  • Garcinia cambogia (400mg): A respected diet pill ingredient that provides a fat busting chemical called Hydroxycitric acid (HCA). For good results garcinia needs to provide at least 60% HCA. The HCA percentage here is not disclosed.
  • Cayenne pepper (60mg): A chilli extract that appears to have appetite suppressing abilities, but is generally more valued for its prowess as a fat burner.
  • Black pepper (20mg): The distinctive taste of black pepper is provided by a compound called piperine. Black pepper extract is added to supplements because piperine helps other ingredients be absorbed more easily.
  • Raspberry ketones (8mg): Research conducted in Korea suggest raspberry ketone’s reputation as a fat burner is built on solid ground.

Usage Instructions – One capsule is needed four times each day and should be taken with a meal or snack. Good results will require the capsules be used in conjunction with diet and exercise.

Lean Bean Customer Feedback

The only customer feedback we could find was posted on the Lean Bean website. Testimonials placed at such a biased source cannot be relied upon for accuracy, especially bearing in mind the fact that customers are offered “rewards” in exchange for their Lean Bean success stories.

Lean Bean Side Effects & Health Issues

Ultimate Life say the formulation does not cause side effects, but they stress the product is only intended for adults. People who have any medical conditions or are using medication are advised to consult a doctor before commencing use of the pills. We would further suggest that any woman who is pregnant or nursing a child get their doctor’s approval as well.

Purchasing Options & Considerations

Lean Bean is only available from the official website and customers who purchase a one or two month supply are looking at paying £35 per bottle.

This is not unreasonable, but customers who buy three bottles of pills for £105 get a fourth bottle thrown in free of charge and are provided with a free e-book workout guide. They are also eligible for Lean Bean money back guarantee. Customer who order fewer than three bottles are not.


The guarantee is a little confusing because it appears to be good for 90 days. This is not the case and anyone who glances at the “90 Days” emblem, but does not read the companying text could be in for a shock.

Customers actually have a full four months to ask for a refund, but the only people who will actually get their cash back are the ones who have placed a first order for three or more bottles, used the product four times per day for a full 90 days, alongside diet and exercise, and found it does not work. However, a £35 processing fee (plus shipping costs) will be deducted from any money that is returned.

The Bottom Line

PhenQ multi benefit diet pillThe Lean Bean formulation contains several respected ingredients, so this should be quite an effective weight loss pill and don’t be fooled by all that pink, men should be able to use it as well.

Lean Bean won’t be able to provide the same level of all around support as the top diet pills, like PhenQ, but Ultimate Health have succeeded in coming up with a pretty good flagship product.

Goop High School Genes – Gwyneth Paltrow Diet Pill

High School GenesHigh School Genes is a dietary supplement for women. It was launched by Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle brand Goop and is marketed as part of the company’s “wellness” range of products.

High School Genes is not the average run-of-the-mill diet pill. Customers who purchase the product receive a box that contains 30 sachets of pills. There are six pills per sachet and they are all taken at once, so if you find it hard to swallow pills this one probably won’t be for you.

Although the name suggests the pills will help users to lose so much weight they will be able to fit back into their old high school jeans, a disclaimer in the marketing material states “This product is not a weight-loss product, is not meant to be a sole source of nutrition, and is not a substitute for a healthy diet and exercise.”

rejected diet pillClaims: Goop High School Genes is intended for women who entering a menopausal state or have been going through the menopause for at least a year

Positives: Has got some good ingredients listed

Negatives: Very gimmicky in our opinion

What is Goop High School Genes and How Does it Work? 

Goop High School Genes is intended for women who entering a menopausal state or have been going through the menopause for at least a year. Weight gain is just one of several health problems that often affect post-menopausal women. All of them are the result of lowered oestrogen levels.

According to the High School Genes sales page, the product “addresses numerous system in the body that may contribute to weight gain when not functioning properly”.

It achieves this by providing the body with a combination of vitamins, minerals, and other natural ingredients, many of which are housed in proprietary blends.

Each sachet contains:

  • 1 x PhytoBlend Multi tablet
  • 1 x Omega-3 EPA-DHA 1000 softgel capsule
  • 2 x Metabolism Boost Tablets
  • 1 x Gut Balance Tablet
  • 1 x Free Radical Scavenger Tablet

The formulations were created by Sara Gottfried, M.D. She’s a graduate of Harvard Medical School and MIT, and is also the author of the New York Times bestselling book Younger, The Hormone Reset Diet. As a supplement creator she is more credible than Gwyneth Paltrow and she certainly has good credentials as an expert on hormones, but that does not mean the pills will definitely work.

Key Ingredients

Anyone who uses this product will be bombarding their body with a lot of ingredients:

Blend Potential

It’s impossible to predict the benefits and/or interaction issues that may occur when such a large quantity of ingredients collide. However, the formulation contains several form of Vitamin B, including Biotin, Riboflavin, and niacin. B Vitamins are known to be necessary for a healthy metabolism.

The metabolism governs how fast calories are burned to provide energy. For this reason, most diet pills contain one or more forms of Vitamin B.

We also see a little bit of green tea is included. Green tea is good because it has proven metabolism boosting abilities. However, the amount provided here is likely to be too low to offer much benefit. Green coffee bean extract is also a good addition because it helps suppress sugar urges and gives the metabolism a boost but, again, it is questionable if enough is incldued.

goop diet pills

Bitter Melon is a bit of a stranger these days, but it is still used in supplements from time to time. It contains an insulin-like chemical that can help reduce blood sugar levels. Bitter melon is also used as a natural remedy for a number of conditions, including constipation, liver problems, and for bringing on mensuration.

Iodine is also included in the line-up. The thyroid gland uses this to make the hormones necessary for regulating the metabolism, so it is a good addition to a blend such as this.

Usage Instructions  – One sachet of pills is required per day and the contents should be taken together.

High School Genes Customer Feedback

We were unable to find any customer feedback for High School Genes

High School Genes Side Effects & Health Issues

Goop provides a telephone number for customers to report side effects. We’ve never encountered this before and have to admit this is a very responsible marketing feature.

However, it does not inspire confidence. Especially bearing in mind the unusually high number of ingredients involved. We suggest all potential users visit their GP and get some expert advice before using High School Genes or any of the other products in the Goop health and wellness range.

Where To Buy High School Genes

You can only buy High School Genes from the Goop website. Each pack contains a 30-day supply of sachets and the price for a one-off purchase is $90 (£69).

There is also an auto-ship option that brings the price per month down to $75 (£57.50). At the time of this review the Goop shipping and returns page stated the company had decided to “pull back on shipping internationally” because they had been “unable guarantee great customer service”. So, if you live in the US you can buy Goop products. If you don’t, you cannot.


High School Genes does not have a money back guarantee.

The Bottom Line

PhenQ multi benefit diet pillGoop High School Genes is designed to help regulate the hormonal changes that can lead to post-menopausal weight gain.

It is entirely possible the pills may do this, but its a lot of pills to take each day and, unless a doctor has told you your hormones are the problem, you will not be able to be certain why you have gained weight.

With this in mind, it would make more sense to choose a respected supplement, like PhenQ, that covers all the bases and works for everyone, not just people who are having problems with their hormones.

Gym Vixen Sexy Shred Review

Sexy ShredGym Vixen Sexy Shred is a diet pill for women who like to work out and keep fit. It’s manufactured in the USA by XPI Supplements.

The company also produce and distribute a number of other sports supplements, and all of the ones that are marked “XPI” appear to be primarily aimed at men.

The ones that say “Gym Vixen” on the label are intended for women.

XPI claims Gym Vixen Sexy Shred has the ability to increase the metabolic rate and focus on stubborn fat cells. Other promised benefits include:

  • Mood enhancement
  • Appetite control
  • All natural jitter-free formulation

What is Gym Vixen Sexy Shred and How Does it Work? 

XPI state weight loss is a case of simple math. The amount of calories entering the body needs to be less than the amount going out. This is very true. When people get more calories than they need, their stores of body fat increase. When calories are insufficient the stored fat is burned. Gym Vixen Sexy Shred is not intended to be a magic pill. Nor is it a good option for women who have no interest in putting in the required work at the gym, or for anyone who is unwilling to control the amount of calories they consume. The pills are intended to support existing efforts and provide an extra “edge”.

Key Ingredients

A full ingredient profile is not provided, but the main ingredients appear to be:

  • Caffeine Anhydrous: Caffeine is a popular stimulant that can aid concentration and give energy levels a boost. It also has proven fat burning abilities, so it has quite a lot to offer. Some people do not tolerate caffeine well, though. Those who do not may find it gives them the jitters, so the promise of a jitter-free formulation cannot be upheld.
  • White Willow Bark: White willow is known to contain compounds that have a natural analgesic effect. It’s presence here is unlikely to help women burn more fat, but it could ease post-workout aches and pains.
  • Advantra Z: A patented form of synephrine. The fat burning stimulant, synephrine, has proven weight loss enhancing abilities. It’s unclear whether Advantra Z offers any advantages over standard synephrine, but it’s true to say its use has declined considerably.
  • Garcinia Cambogia: An extract taken from a tropical fruit. The rind of the fruit is rich in hydroxycitric acid (HCA). This compound has the ability to take huger cravings away, so it can be very good for helping people sustain a lower calorie intake. It also has the power to prevent the body from creating fresh stores of fat. It’s capabilities have been endorsed by the (American TV) weight loss expert, Dr Oz, but he states the ingredient only works if it provides at least 60% HCA. XPI fails to state the potency of the extract used here.
  • ThermoDiamine: A form of evodiamine that is extracted from unripened evodia fruits. The only difference between Thermodiamine and other forms of the ingredient is it is alleged to be 98% pure. Research conducted in China suggests evodiamine may boost the metabolism sufficiently to encourage the burning of extra calories. Unfortunately the study was conducted on mice. The ingredient may not work the same for humans.
Usage Instructions – The usage instructions on the manufacturer’s website are pretty vague. They simply state the capsules should be taken two times per day, before meals, and washed down with 8-12 ounces of water. However, elsewhere on the page it states a bottle of Gym Vixen Sexy Shred contains enough pills to last for 60 days. There are 120 pills in each bottle, so it is safe to assume the recommended dose is one capsule, two times per day.

Sexy Shred Customer Feedback

The sales page contains a couple of testimonials that are attributed to satisfied customers. Both of them make the product sound very good. Reviews placed on a less biased site would be more reliable, but none were available at the time of this review.

Sexy Shred Side Effects & Health Issues

The manufacturer points out the formulation contains caffeine, and states people who are sensitive to caffeine should seek medical advice before using the product. The formulation also contains two more stimulants (Advantra Z and Thermodiamine), so we suggest all potential users attain medical approval before trying to use this product to help them to lose weight.

Purchasing Options & Considerations

Although the product used to be available via Amazon this is no longer the case, so the best place to by Gym Vixen Sexy Shred is from the manufacturer’s website. Each bottle contains a sufficient supply of pills to last for two months. At the time of this review, the cost was USD$ 59.95 per bottle and bulk buy discounts were available for customers seeking a better deal.


Sexy Shred is backed by a 90-day money back guarantee.

The Bottom Line

It seems probable this formulation will be capable of helping people to lose more weight than they are capable of doing through diet and exercise alone, but it is clear the official website does not provide a full list of ingredients.

The site states the blend contains ingredients that will boost serotonin levels and improve the mood. None of the disclosed ingredients are capable of this, neither are they likely to be particularly beneficial for women. In fact, all of the ingredients mentioned are diet pill regulars, so the “fat burner for women” angle is likely to be nothing more than a marketing gimmick.

The long guarantee ensures customers have nothing to lose, but anyone who is serious about losing weight may be better off going for a more established product.

Herbex Fat Burn Review

Herbex Fat BurnHerbex is a supplement brand based in South Africa. The company markets a number of different weight management products and offers worldwide shipping.

Although the information presented on the Herbex website is in English, all the prices are in South African rand. The rand does not hold its own well against most other currencies, so the three-figure price tags can initially seem quite high. For instance, Herbex Fat Burn Tablets usually cost just under R102, but the price in American dollars is only $7.88.

The fat burning tablets are one of three products bundled together in the Herbex Fat Burn Complete Pack. The other two are Slimmers Fat Burn Tea and Booster Fat Burn.

Herbex Fat Burn Advertised Benefits

  • Increased metabolism
  • Improved fat burning
  • More efficient immune system

Fat Burn Tablets: Key Ingredients and Blend Potential

One Fat Burn tablet provides:

  • Camellia sinensis extract (126.50mg): This is just green tea. The antioxidants it provides can benefit the immune system and help protect the body from disease. Clinical testing shows green tea also boosts the metabolism and encourages thermogenic fat burning.
  • Zingiber officinale (125mg): This is a fancy name for ginger. Ginger is good for the digestive system. It’s also sometimes credited with fat burning abilities, but further study is required. Zingiber officinale is also included in the other two products that make up the “Complete Pack”.
  • Capsicum frutescens (50mg): A capsicum pepper extract. Scientific study shows capsicum has the ability to increase thermogenesis and fat oxidation.
  • Eleutherococcus senticosus (30mg): A herbal compound that helps delay the onset of physical fatigue and can be good for boosting stamina levels.

Slimmers Fat Burn Tea: Key Ingredients and Blend Potential

One Slimmers Fat Burn Tea (tea bag) provides:

  • Rooibos tea (880mg): In Afrikaans, “roobios” means “red bush”. It’s been a popular tea in Africa for many hundreds of years and is now drunk in many other countries of the world. Rooibos appears to enhance fat burning and may also offer other health benefits, including reduced stress levels and improved heart health.
  • Black tea (600mg): Probably the more popular beverage, black tea is just green tea that has been processed, causing the leaves to become darker. Black tea has a stronger flavor than green tea, but it does not enjoy the same reputation as a fat burner.
  • Zingiber officinale (120mg): More ginger. This is also provided by the other two products.
  • Cinnamon (120mg): Cinnamon is often alleged to have fat busting abilities, but it’s hard to find scientific proof to support such claims.
  • Astragalus membranaceus (40mg): A popular Chinese herb that is said to have the ability to extend the lifespan and provide many other attractive benefits.
  • Garcinia cambogia 60% extract (40mg): The hydroxycitric acid (HCA) provided by garcinia has an excellent reputation for boosting weight loss results. This stems from its ability to suppress hunger and prevent the body from creating fresh stores of fat.

Booster Fat Burn: Key Ingredients and Blend Potential

Each ml of Booster Fat Burn contains:

  • Camellia Sinensis (21mg): More green tea.
  • Eleutherococcus senticosus (18.75mg): This ingredient is also included in the fat burning tablets.
  • Zingiber Officinale (14.25mg): More of the same (Also in the other two products).
  • Astragalus Membranaceus (12mg): Also in the tea.

How to Use Herbex Fat Burn Complete Pack

This is how the daily schedule will look for Herbex Fat Burn Complete Pack users:

After breakfast:

  • 1 x Fat Burn tablet (taken with a glass of water)
  • 90 drops of Booster Fat Burn (added to a glass of water)
  • 1 x cup of Slimmers Fat Burn Tea (one tea bag steeped in boiling water for one minute)

Afternoon dose:

  • 90 drops of Booster Fat Burn (added to a glass of water)
  • 1 x cup of Slimmers Fat Burn Tea (one tea bag steeped in boiling water for one minute)

Evening dose:

  • 1 x Fat Burn tablet (taken with a glass of water)
  • 90 drops of Booster Fat Burn (added to a glass of water)

Herbex Fat Burn Customer Comments

Although the Herbex website provides customer reviews for each of the products that make up the “complete pack”, there are no reviews by people who have used all three products together.

We were unable to find any customer reviews elsewhere either, so there is no way of knowing how well the products have performed for past customers, when used in unison. Nor if there any way of being sure side effects and/or interaction problems will not be an issue.

Herbex Fat Burn Side Effects & Health Considerations

Anyone using all these products alongside each other in the recommended way will be bombarding their body with a lot of herbal compounds so we suggest all potential users ask a doctor for advice before using Herbex Fat Burn Complete Pack.

Where to Buy Herbex Fat Burn Complete Pack

You can buy the product from the Herbex website and the price per pack is around USD$ 17 (R214.19). Fo UK £ pricing you will need to use a conversion tool for latest GBP £ pricing.


There is no money back guarantee.

The Verdict

As far as the price goes, this is a pretty hard product to beat and some good ingredients are involved, so it might work—in theory. However, many weight loss products that contain good ingredients fail to deliver the goods.

This can be due to the use of ingredients sourced from third-rate suppliers, poor processing techniques, or many other factors. Bearing this in mind, the lack of customer reviews presents concern, so we are unable to add recommend Herbex Fat Burn Complete Pack at this time.

Libbera Review – containing glucomannan

Libbera reviewLibbera is a diet pill that contains glucomannan.

Nothing is known about the company that has brought the product to market, and the official website provides very little information about the pills or how they are likely to work.

However, there is an iSpot.tv advert as well. It provides a little additional information, but there are still many unknowns with this product.

The three main benefits offered are:

  • Decreased appetite
  • Supports healthy cholesterol
  • Supports healthy blood sugar

rejected diet pillClaims: To help decrease appetite and support healthy cholesterol and blood sugar levels

Positives: Has got glucomannan as an ingredients

Negatives: The product is a vague as to how much of the ingredients are present

Whch diet products are best at suppressing your appetite

The manufacturer also claims use of the product can help people to lose weight without making sacrifices or changing their daily routine.

What is Libbera and How Does it Work?

Libbera is a hunger suppressant. Diet supplements that are designed to work in this way reduce feelings of hunger. This means dieters using the product are able to eat less food without being tortured by a grumbling stomach. When people eat less food the body gets fewer calories. It needs calories to function. They are its fuel. Whenever a calorie shortage becomes an issue the body is forced to adapt to the situation and find an alternative source of fuel. It achieves this by “burning” its fat and reclaiming the excess calories it stored there when the daily intake of calories was too high.

Key Ingredients

A full ingredient profile is not provided. The official website simply states Libbera’s “main ingredient” is glucomannan. It’s an excellent hunger suppressant, but a statement like that hints that there may be other ingredients involved. Glucomannan is only effective in high doses and the pills are alleged to be small. If other ingredients are involved there may not be a sufficient amount of glucomannan in the pills.

Many claims are made for the health-enhancing abilities of glucomannan, but not all of them are true.

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has evaluated the claims and state it offers proven value in only two areas.

  1. Maintenance of normal blood cholesterol concentrations
  2. Reduction of body weight

However, the EFSA state glucomannan only works for weight loss if it is used in conjunction with a calorie-controlled diet. They also stress a 1000mg dose is required three times each day and each dose must be taken with 1-2 glasses of water before meals.

The EFSA’s stipulations are not without good reason. Glucomannan is a water soluble fiber that is taken from the roots of the konjac plant. When it is combined with water it expands considerably. If this happens within the confines of the stomach it creates a feeling of satiety. So anyone who has 1000mg of hydrated glucomannan fibers inside their stomach is unlikely to have much of an appetite and will be satisfied with much smaller meals.

Customer Feedback

We were unable to find any customer feedback for this product.

Side Effects & Health Issues

Glucomannan is not usually associated with side effects, but the supplement is unlikely to be suitable for women who are pregnant or nursing a child. People who have existing health problems should always check with their doctor prior to taking any brand of weight loss support supplement. The same advice is offered to people who are using medication.

Purchasing Options & Considerations

Libbera is only available via the official product website and it is possible to place an order online or via telephone. At the time of this review, it was possible to buy 30 capsules for $29.95 and receive an extra bottle free of charge. At first blush that sounds like a bargain but, bearing in mind the fact that no information is provided about the daily dosage, it is not possible to say how long a bottle is likely to last. If several capsules are required per day, and this seems likely, Libbera could be a more costly option that it seems.


Libbera is backed by a 30-day money back guarantee.

The Bottom Line

There can be no doubt about glucomannan’s value as an appetite suppressant, but supplements that contain it are unlikely to offer good results unless they provide the quantity suggested by the EFSA. They also need to be used according to the EFSA’s recommendations and, contrary to what the manufacturer of Libbera claims, some sacrifices and lifestyle changes will be required because a healthy, calorie controlled diet will be necessary.

PhenQ multi benefit diet pillEven presuming the capsules contain the correct amount of glucomannan, and successfully suppress the appetite, the level of weight loss support provided will be a poor second to PhenQ.

The PhenQ formulation also contains a powerful appetite suppressant (nopal), which can further lower the daily calorie intake by blocking the digestion of dietary fat. PhenQ accelerates the fat burning process as well, and it has excellent customer feedback. Libbera has no feedback so, although it may have the potential to control huger, if you are looking for the best way to control your weight you will be better off choosing PhenQ.
