Leptopril

Leptopril is an expensive holistic weight loss aid containing mostly caffeine and amino acids. Marketed by A.G. Waterhouse, the supplement is available on the official website or at other online retailers. A generic brand called Leptopril is sold at discount stores and drugstores. Leptopril, by Generix Labs, is marketed as a generic version of Leptoprin diet pills. According to the Leptopril website, the only difference between the two is price; Leptopril is $74.99 for a month's supply, and Leptoprin is $153 for a month's supply, as of 2010. Both pills are marketed as a highly powerful diet pill that is suitable only for people who are "significantly overweight," meaning they have at least 20 lbs. to lose. While it may sound like a "magic pill" on the surface, some facts about Leptopril may cause doubt as to the effectiveness and safety of the product.

Leptopril once contained ephedrine, a substance known to be effective for weight loss, until ephedrine was banned by the United States Food and Drug Administration in 2004. Leptopril now contains green coffee and green tea as stimulants, along with seven amino acids, and some herbal, fruit and root ingredients. None of these substances has been shown as effective in fat burning or weight loss. The stimulant-free version of Leptopril has been discontinued.
