There are people who look for quality and safety in supplements. These consumers are always on the lookout for phrases like “clinically tested” or something similar. And perhaps because of consumers like this that Lipo-6 decided to create a product that most would associate with safety so they called it Rx, the symbol doctors use for prescription medicine.
No doubt Lipo-6 Rx means business. Looking at the label we already see a lot of quality claims as well as making use of clinically tested ingredients. The thing is, will Rx be the kind of fat burner doctors would prescribe their patients? Let’s check it out.
About LIPO-6 Rx
Lipo-6 Rx is capable of a lot of good and bad formulations as we reviewed in the past but this one seems to be veering towards the good stuff. Some of their highlights include being clinically tested, fast acting, and something about maximum strength. We’re not entirely sure what they mean from the last part since the dosages we see are anything but strong but we’ll see. Formula notes:
- Clear label: And they are damn proud of this too.
- Liqui-Caps: Says they’re fast-acting compared to ordinary capsules.
- Premium stuff: We like what we see in the supplement facts.

A potent nootropic-burner that depends too much on stimulants
Fat burners have evolved. No longer are companies hell bent on driving lifters insane with stimulants and their questionable alternatives. Yet we find ourselves with a fat burner throwback with LIPO-6 Rx. Granted, it contains pretty dope nootropics, they do little to hide the fact that it’s largely stimulant-centric. Let’s break down the ingredients in this formula:
DMAE Bitartrate, 150 mg
DMAE is an organic amino alcohol touted for several brain-boosting effects. It primarily benefits acetylcholine and brain cell membranes. Because of this, this ingredient is known to improve focus, concentration, and mood. Dosage is standard although studies on brain health use upwards of 500 mg but those are for more serious issues.
Caffeine Anhydrous, 135 mg
This is just one of three sources of caffeine but this is the raw and plain version. Nonetheless, it’s also one of the most potent when it comes to energy and fat burning.
Theacrine (as Teacrine®), 100 mg
This works a lot like caffeine but without the crash and jitters thanks largely to its different chemical makeup. On top of the energy, you also get some mood enhancing benefits which should help make your lifts not as stressful. Dosage is within standard too so props to that.
N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine, 100 mg
The form of tyrosine pros prefer, this nootropic counters stress which normally happens when you’re tired of exercising or just had a rough day. We would want more but since this is included inside a fat burner, we’re okay with this dose.
DiCaffeine Malate (as Infinergy), 100 mg
It’s a buffered form of caffeine. It’s milder but the brand who makes this claims it prevents crashing due to its slow-release property, ensuring a sustainable level of energy for a long period instead of a quick spike and a sudden crash afterwards.
Ginger Root CO2, 20 mg
This is supposed to be ginger extracted using CO2. A quick search tells us it’s used as an aromatic or household scent. It can also be used topically or orally and its benefits include anti-inflammatory and pain relief. Since this is an extract, we figured it would have concentrated amounts of gingerols, the active compound in ginger. Problem is, we have no idea just how much.
Rauwolscine, 1 mg
Rauwolscine works a lot like yohimbine and serves to help boost energy while simultaneously helping your body burn more fat. Dosage is really low but not so low that it won’t work.
There’s a lot to be said about a product that makes use of premium stuff in its formula and that’s what LIPO-6 Rx has done. We got seven clearly labeled ingredients and each one is known to be potent in their own right.
We like the fact that it made use of three ingredients for energy to mitigate the crash and prevent stomach pain that usually happens when you take too much in one go. We also appreciate how the supplement made use of premium nootropics in their proper doses. Add the potency of liquefied ginger extract and rauwolscine encapsulated by a fast-acting capsules and you got yourselves a standard nootro-burner.
As a nootro-burner that puts emphasis on stimulants, you not only feel ready to lift but you feel good doing it. There’s nothing wrong with that approach but let’s set the record straight: stimulants are more about boosting energy than burning fat. Caffeine specially works well on its own but it’s true potential can be unlocked if paired with synephrine.
There are boatloads of fat burners out there that focuses primarily on fat burning and Lipo-6 Rx decides to stick to cost-effectiveness and go for the cheap stims.
We’re not saying it doesn’t work. No, what we’re saying is gone are the days where stimulants ruled the fat burning industry. We have plenty of research done on a lot of ingredients some of which burn helluva lot more fat than caffeine on a per gram basis.
Not to mention that we only really have 210 mg of caffeine here (theacrine doesn’t count) and while that’s more than two cups of coffee, it’s not as potent as a fat burner than if you used green tea extract or if you added synephrine in the mix. Sure, caffeine is our #2 fat burner but it’s not as efficient at fat burning than other known fat burners.
The takeaway here is Lipo-6 Rx is a standard nootro-burner with quality ingredients on both sides but it’s not so potent that it will blow its competition out of the water.
LIPO-6 Rx Benefits
Energy and brain boosting benefits will be its two prominent benefits while fat burning takes a backseat for this one.
Who Takes It?
It’s definitely for customers who like the sound of “clinically researched” or anything resembling a doctor’s prescription. It’s also for folks who love stimulants but can’t have the side effects.
Any Side Effects?
The caffeine in this blend is just about okay relative to other supplements. The fact that the supplement made use of feel-good nootropics should help mitigate the crash and jitters if not eliminate them completely.

Final Word on LIPO-6 Rx
Lipo-6 Rx is a pretty great supplement for energy and nootropic benefits that gives some fat burning benefits. We can only wish they added more credible fat burners aside from relying solely on stimulants. The industry has evolved past that after all, and it only serves to be regressive and a waste of research funds if we don’t choose to embrace the change in trends.
