Leptoprin

Leptoprin 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.

Leptoprin 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. Leptoprin 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 Leptoprin has been discontinued.
