Full Lean Xplode Review
Lean Xplode is not a particularly well-known fat burner. However, we have seen a couple of people discussing this product online, so we thought a detailed Lean Xplode review was in order.
Lean Xplode is “distributed” by Prime Labs. These guys own quite a few different fat burners, as well as a natural testosterone booster, a sleep aid, and a “muscle builder”.
We are reluctant to say that they “make” a wide range of supplements, because they never use that word themselves. The product bottles say that Prime Labs distribute these supplements. It is likely, then, that they are pre-made white label products and Prime Labs buy the right to apply their branding.
This suspicion is reinforced by the fact that their online store re-directs to Amazon.
So what about Lean Xplode?
According to the bottle, Lean Xplode:
- Supports metabolism
- Reduces appetite
- Helps with weight management
It is described as an “advanced fat burner”. The page selling the product on Amazon promises rapid fat loss on top of these listed benefits.
Curiously, Lean Xplode is not listed on the Prime Labs official website. We will try to get in contact with them at some point to find out why this is.
But for now, let’s take what we do know and try to deal with the question you’ve all come here to answer: does Lean Xplode really work?
Does it deliver the enhanced fat loss you’re looking for?
Can it really help with hunger?
Does it “support metabolism” as it claims?
Is it safe?
Most importantly, is it the right product for you? Or is there something better out there?
Let’s find out together. Below you will find our full Lean Xplode review. We look at the ingredients, the serving sizes, and other customer reviews. We piece all of this together and tell you if we think this supplement is any good or if it is another over-priced, under-performing scam. If you have any questions, let us know in the comments!
Lean Xplode Formula
Here is the Lean Xplode formula. We took this shot from Amazon. As we said, the product isn’t listed on the official website, so there is no true “official” source we can use to get the formula:
Our Thoughts On The Formula – Disappointing
We’re going to just come right out and say it: this is a pretty mediocre formula.
Generally speaking, we like it when manufacturers choose a handful of proven fat burners and put their faith in them. This is better than stuffing your product full of unproven, under-dosed, over-hyped garbage and hoping that the long ingredient list convinces customers that it’s good.
But in Lean Xplode we have just 5 ingredients all of which are dosed at 130mg.
That just doesn’t sound like a particularly exciting fat burner from the off. Rarely do two substances share an ideal serving size. Very rarely do 5.
Of these ingredients, only 3 are effective fat burners.
Effective Ingredients, Some Underdosed
Green coffee bean extract is known to have a profound impact on fat loss. We have written about green coffee beans and their powerful fat burning properties in this article, which you should read if you are interested in the details.
For now, suffices to say that a compound in GCBE, chlorogenic acid, is known to help reduce severe insulin spikes, meaning less fat accumulation and better weight management. The 130mg in Lean Xplode is enough to deliver all the benefits that GCBE has to offer.
Caffeine anhydrous has obvious benefits for anyone looking to take their next cutting phase to the next level.
Caffeine keeps you energized, motivated, and it significantly reduces the perception of fatigue. Caffeine can help you get more out of your workouts at any time, but it becomes an incredible tool during a diet. When you aren’t eating as much as usual your performance will be the first thing to suffer.
In short, caffeine can push you through your grueling workouts without leaving you totally exhausted or mentally depleted.
Ideally, we’d like to see about 200mg of caffeine anhydrous in a serious fat burner, with doses spread equally throughout the day. The 130mg in Lean Xplode isn’t terrible, but it isn’t ideal either.
Green tea extract is another great ingredient, but here the dose is a serious let down.
Green tea contains a catechin called EGCG which is known to bring about a dramatic acceleration in the rate at which you lose body fat. This effect has been observed in numerous clinical trials and it seems to be a reliable relationship.
But the dose used in Lean Xplode is a big let down. Green tea is incredibly safe, and the efficacy of EGCG is intimately tied to dose. The top fat burners will invariably provide more than 300mg of green tea. Some provide as much as 600mg. The 130mg of green tea extract in Lean Xplode is well short of our expectations.
The remaining 2 ingredients have never been shown to bring about greater weight loss, to improve physical performance, or even to help with long-term health.
To put it simply, 2 of the ingredients in Lean Xplode do nothing.
We’re talking about raspberry ketones and garcinia cambogia.
We have written an entire article on raspberry ketones and why we think they are one of the great scams of the supplement industry today.
Basically, the reason that raspbery ketones are found in so many supplements today is because they are readily available for a very low price.
The perfume industry discovered how to make this stuff in very large amounts for practically nothing. As this drove prices down, manufacturers found that they had a lot on their hands that they needed to get rid of to stay profitable. They pushed to find new markets, and the supplement industry represented the perfect option.
Ketones sounds like ketogenic. Raspberry ketones have nothing to do with the ketones in your body – those related to the great keto fad diet that is popular right now. But that doesn’t matter so long as people make the association, which they often do.
Supplemnt manufacturers get a cheap ingredient that looks great on ingredient lists, and manufacturers get rid of some raspberry ketone backlog; win-win.
Except for the customer of course, because raspberry ketones do nothing.
There is not single robust scientific study in existence which shows that raspberry ketones have a positive effect on fat loss. Not one. Until we see one, we have to conclude that raspberry ketones are totally bogus.
Exactly the same thing is true of garcinia cambogia.
Garcinia cambogia is one of the most over-hyped substances in the bodybuilding industry at the minute.
Somehow ($$$), manufacturers have managed to convince people that GC can reduce appetite and prevent food cravings while dieting.
We can’t find a shred of evidence proving this to be the case.
The only studies that have seriously looked at GC, not those conducted by a blogger who endorses supplements, have found that all it does is improve the taste of food.
But making you more satisfied by a meal is not the same as actually reducing appetite or making you feel fuller for longer. They aren’t the same thing at all.
MSG makes food tastier at the time, but we wouldn’t recommend it for weight loss.
As with raspberry ketones, unless we see some hard, scientific evidence that GC works to significantly reduce appetite to the same degree as glucomannan or similar substances, we’re forced to conclude that it is bogus.
Lean Xplode Review Conclusion
All things considered, this really doesn’t strike us as a particularly serious fat burner.
The bottle says “advanced fat burner”, but Lean Xplode is far from what we would call “advanced”.
It contains 5 ingredients, all of which are dosed at 130mg.
Only 3 of these ingredients offer fat burning benefits. Even here, one of them has a serious dosing issue, and another is slightly under-dosed.
Sometimes low doses can be forgiven, but not when we’re only dealing with 3 active ingredients.
The remaining 2 ingredients are effectively useless. You will undoubtedly see plenty of articles talking about how garcinia cambogia and raspberry ketones are powerful fat burning substances. But do some research for yourself; if you can find a single scientific study proving this to be the case, we’d love to see it.
If you really want to get the most out of your next cut and your main priority is results, then check out our current fat burner leader board. Lean Xplode has very limited potential; most users will find it incredibly disappointing compared to more professional supplements.
