LeptiBurn is advertised as a highly effective diet supplement containing a combination of panax notoginseng, olive leaf,irvingia gabonensis, yerba mate, brown seaweed, and green tea. We don’t have any information on when the formula hit the market, but we know the Biotrust Nutrition (the producing company) website was created in 2001.
According to BioTrust Nutrition co-founder, Joel, leptin works as the dominant hormone controlling functions of all other weight loss hormones. Based on this, in theory, if we support the production and restoration of leptin, it will promote weight loss and help dieters break through weight loss plateaus.
LeptiBurn contains all-natural ingredients, which is the recommended approach.
LeptiBurn contains the following ingredients: LeptiBurn contains the following ingredients: Olive leaf extract (Oleaeuropaea) 150 mg, Brown seaweed extract (laminaria japonica) 200 mg, Irvingia gabonensis IGOB 131 150 mg, Panax notoginseng extract 400 mg, Green tea standardized extract 350 mg, Yerba mate standardized extract 83 mg, vegetable cellulose, microcrystalline cellulose, and vegetable stearate.
LeptiBurn does not contain egg, dairy, fish, shellfish, crustacean, tree nuts, peanuts, gluten, wheat, or soy.
We have to start by saying that BioTrust Nutrition does a good job of breaking down the LeptiBurn formula and explaining how each key ingredient work to promote weight loss. Multiple clinical research is available on the official website, which is a commending thing.
The first important ingredient for this formulation is the olive leaf extract that has some clinical support as an antibiotic, antioxidant and anti-hypertensive. However, BioTrust Nutrition does not focus on those features and in exchange they focus on the extract’s ability to stimulate GLP-1 (glucagon peptide-1).
Irvingia gabonensis is a known source of fiber. Fiber is commonly added to weight loss products to slow digestion and support satiety. There is some evidence the seed extract can help lower high cholesterol, but from weight loss point of view these clinical trials are not as conclusive. However, the company mentions a study that shows irvingia gabonensis increases leptin sensitivity by reducing C-reactive protein.
Our research team has found the mentioned study in the journal “Lipids in Health and Disease”. According to the study, participants were given 3,150 mg of irvingia gabonensis extract daily as 1,050 mg three times a day. The results were impressive. But getting back to the formula we review here, LeptiBurn only supplies 300 mg of irvingia gabonensis extract – that if we take the supplement as recommended as one capsule twice daily. There is no comparison between the clinical study and the amount of extract supplied by LeptiBurn – there is simply not enough irvingia gabonensis.

Overall, LeptiBurn appears to be a decent weight loss supplement with some interesting features for those interested in that type of supplements.
While the manufacturer claims LeptiBurn will increase leptin levels, promote leptin sensitivity and help the dieter lose more weight, some clinical evidence are lacking – especially for some ingredients that haven’t been tested on humans yet.
LeptiBurn has received good overall reviews from real users, which is a very good thing. The fact that all ingredients are disclosed is also important, but we would like to know just how much caffeine the dieter is taking with each serving.
