Lipo-6 Black HERS claims to be an extremely potent weight loss formula that is designed for women. Nothing like labeling your product with the words weight and loss to get women’s attention, right? Read on to see if Nutrex can back up their claims in this in this Lipo-6 Black Hers review.
About Lipo-6 Black Hers
Part of the Nutrex Lipo-6 weight loss supplement line, 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 woman is the addition of folate and to an extent, calcium. Formula notes:
- Good quality ingredients: It’s made with ingredients known for quality and purity, like branded Bacognize® and Advantra-Z®
- Bad Other ingredients: 3 synthetic colors detract from the otherwise impressive label. Women prefer clean labels in 2018.
- Nootropic emphasis: Includes a couple of brain-boosting nootropics for stress resistance and cognitive function
Editor’s Note: As of July 2018, Lipo-6 Black Hers is “out of stock” on Nutrex’s website and missing from retailers. It may be discontinued. Check back for updates, or learn about our Best 5 Fat Burner Supplements for Women.

LIPO-6 Black Hers is a woman specific formula driven by stimulants, fat burners and brain-boosting nootropics.
Lipo-6 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.
Lipo-6 Black Hers is a nootropic/fat-burner hybrid that isn’t really customized for women — unless you believe that women’s weight loss success depends largely on mental fortitude.
In this stack, 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 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 has 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 for women, it falls a little short when it comes to meeting women’s distinct weight loss needs.
Lipo-6 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?
It has a slight customization towards women, with extra folate and anti-stress support. However, it should only be taken by women who are OK with stimulants, as the yohimbe-caffeine combo in Lipo 6 Black Hers can be pretty intense.
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.

- Dosing. Not hefty (for 3 caps per serving) but good enough
- Dual action. Fat burner and nootropic in one.
- A little on the pricey side. Nutrex quality comes with a price.

Final Word on LIPO6 BLACK Hers
Lipo-6 Black Hers is more than an ordinary fat burner. It can function as a nootropic and boasts ingredients that have quality and potency. Each ingredient included serves a clear purpose which makes us see how much research and thought Nutrex put behind this women’s weight loss product.
While it is not the best fat burner for women, specifically, Lipo-6 Black Hers remains an effective — if intensely stimulating — weight loss formula.
