Consumers report that Exipure’s weight loss supplement does not work as advertised and, in some cases, causes weight gain.
Exipure was founded in 2014, and has a fulfillment center in Illinois. Each bottle contains 30 capsules, to be taken over 30 days. 1 bottle costs $59, 3 bottles cost $147 ($49 per bottle), and 6 bottles cost $234 ($39 per bottle).
Exipure’s website advertises its product as a “healthy weight loss” supplement “backed by clinical research.” Exipure claims that it has over 100,000 five-star reviews but does not feature reviews or a link to reviews on its website. Instead, the website features 3 testimonials by individuals claiming to have lost 26 to 40 pounds. The Frequently Asked Questions section recommends that customers who are over 35 and overweight take the supplement for “at least 3 to 6 months.”
Rather than responding to these complaints, Exipure appears to be publishing fake reviews and articles with headlines including terms such as “fraudulent”, “real truth”, and “scam” that actually promote the supplement. Trustpilot has also flagged the company for posting fake and misleading reviews.
Exipure’s website boasts an “iron-clad 180-day 100% money-back guarantee.” The Frequently Asked Questions section and return policy state that customers must return their bottles within 180 days of ordering to get a refund.
One customer reported that they sent all of their bottles back on March 2, 2022 and had not received a refund as of April 22, while another never received their refund despite providing a tracking number. A third customer reported that Exipure would only refund 25% of their purchase if they returned 4 of 6 bottles they purchased.
A similar class action alleged that Obesity Research Institute falsely advertised the effectiveness of its Lipozene weight loss supplement and engaged in fraud and deceit. That lawsuit resulted in a $4.6 million settlement. Another similar class action alleged that GOLO mislabeled and falsely advertised their Release weight loss supplement, which did not work and was only backed by pilot studies, not peer-reviewed or legitimate research. Exipure does not appear to share any primary ingredients with these products, but its weight loss claims are similar.
