Girls should definitely lift as frequent as guys do. Period. Today’s world is no longer divided between a strong man and a soft woman because when it comes down to it, our bodies function similarly so what’s usually good for guys should also be good for girls and vice versa.
With that said, there are still girls out there who feel like the fitness world is still largely made for men so Nutrex plans to blow that thought out of the water by introducing Lipo 6 BLACK HERS, a fat burner made for our lovely women.
Lipo 6 BLACK HERS claims to be an extremely potent weight loss formula. Nothing like labeling your product with the words weight and loss to get women’s attention, right? But can they back that shit up? Let’s find out!
About LIPO6 BLACK Hers
Nutrex says its LIPO 6 BLACK HERS fat burner has extreme potency and seems to make use of branded ingredients as evidence. From the label, it also says it’s more than just a fat burner with claims like “control appetite” and “better focus”. The only hint of it being for a lady, as far as we’re concerned, is the addition of folate and to an extent, calcium. Formula notes:
- Quality ingredients: It’s built with ingredients known for quality and purity.
- For women: We’re not even sure what makes it for girls since both sexes want to burn a lot of fat.
- Other ingredients: Newsflash: We don’t need this much fluff even for encapsulated products.

LIPO 6 Black Hers shouldn’t be gender-specified as it can swing both ways.
Black Hers may be made for a female but based on what we see, we think this fat burner here will attract both sexes. It can function as a nootropic and fat burner at the same time and the only hint of it being for girls is the slight sprinkling of Folic Acid and Calcium. Let’s break down the ingredients in this formula:
Bacopa monnieri extract as Bacognize®, 250 mg
Bacognize is the one form of bacopa monnier we love. It’s premium and guaranteed to be concentrated even in minimal doses. Bacopa is what we call the ideal student’s supplement because of its amazing nootropic effects particularly for promoting knowledge retention and a clear mindset.
Caffeine, 220 mg
Caffeine is one of our best 5 fat burning ingredients and it’s due to how it not only gives you a great boost in energy but it also ramps up your body’s own thermogenic processes. That dose is definitely more than enough to get you lifting and sweating.
Citrus Aurantium as Advantra Z®, 40 mg
Advantra Z is always a welcome brand for synephrine users. Not only is it super concentrated for synephrine but it’s really safe too, even in doses more than twice what we have here. Paired with caffeine, these two make a simple yet tested burn stack people all over in the fitness world knows and respects.
Vinpocetine, 10 mg
Vinpocetine is our #4 best nootropic and with good reason. It helps protect the brain from cell degeneration while also boosting overall mental performance. At 10 mg, we get twice the usual dose and the brain can use all the help it can get.
Zingerone, 10 mg
This is ginger’s active ingredient and credited for boosting our fight or flight hormone norepinephrine. Boosting this little hormone sparks lipolysis while also preventing fat storage. It’s also awesome for liver health if you’re looking for that. The dosage we have here is less than half* than we would have liked but it’s still a good addition.
*(Rat dosage / 6.2 = human equivalent dosage or in this case, 27 mg)
Yohimbine HCl, 4.5 mg
Yohimbine is the active compound found in Yohimbe and is known to work similarly to Zingerone but with much more potency. So much in fact that even this 4.5 mg dose is considered standard dosing for new users.
We really don’t understand why this became a female-oriented fat burner. Based on the ingredients we see, we don’t see why it won’t work with manly men too. I mean, why do we even make fat burners based on gender when we all burn fat the same way?
We’re saying this because this fat burner makes use of a nootropic-burner stack, something we’ve highlighted before in our best fat burners of 2016.
Just take a look at what it’s packing.
We have two premium ingredients for Bacopa and Synephrine as well as more than enough of caffeine and vinpocetine. Not only do we love these four for being dosed appropriately but these four ingredients belong to our best 5 fat burners and nootropics list! Even if dosing for Zingerone was meh, Yohimbine’s is good enough to work with caffeine and synephrine for the ultimate norepinephrine boost.
Now does Lipo 6 Black Hers have the “extreme potency” it claims? We can say it’s potent but not extremely potent since our standards for potency is on a higher level than what Nutrex deems it. Don’t get us wrong, Nutrex definitely made use of concentrated stuff but the dosing as well as the combination of ingredients could’ve been slightly tweaked to get to the “extreme” level.
Lastly, as much as we like to applaud Nutrex for creating a gender-specific fat burner in favor of our lovely ladies, we’re afraid today’s standards have outgrown such notions especially in the health and fitness space. Sure enough, women and men have different physiological needs but when it comes down to fat burning and getting ripped, both share the same processes involved.
LIPO6 BLACK Hers Benefits
Lipo 6 Black Hers can definitely hold its own as a nootropic-burner stack, giving the user focus and clarity while tweaking their fat burning hormones into overdrive.
Who Takes It?
They say it’s for women (they think adding folate makes it girly) but we say it can be sold to guys too. For the gym buffs, it’s not so extreme that you’ll be shaking and twitching while you lift your ass out but it is potent enough to get the job done.
Any Side Effects?
Okay so it has 220 mg of caffeine (more than most but not too much) and a bit of yohimbine and everyone knows what to expect from that: jitters, crashes, elevated heart rate, and the occasional insomnia if you’re too sensitive or drank this too late in the day. Amazingly enough, Nutrex didn’t bother with a caffeine-belt ingredient like theanine. Maybe they thought two nootropics were enough but for us, it would’ve helped to cancel out the side effects brought on by caffeine and yohimbine.

Final Word on LIPO6 BLACK Hers
LIPO 6 BLACK HERS is definitely more than an ordinary fat burner. It can function as a nootropic and boasts of ingredients that have quality and potency. Each ingredient included serves a clear purpose which makes us see how much research and thought they put behind this product. While the doses could use a bit of improvement, what we have here is good enough to rev us up and get us lifting. The only downside we see is the price tag but if you can afford it then no one will stop you.
