weight loss supplement

A $4.6 million settlement resolves allegations that the Obesity Research Institute deceived consumers about the effectiveness of its Lipozene weight loss pills.

Class Members include those who purchased Lipozene weight loss pills between Aug. 10, 2012 and Oct. 28, 2019 for personal use.

Lead plaintiffs accused the Obesity Research Institute and Continuity Products of falsely advertising Lipozene as a “weight-loss breakthrough” that would “get rid of pounds of body fat.”

The Lipozene class action contended that, contrary to Lipozene’s advertising claims, the supplement is neither a safe nor effective treatment for weight loss.

The product’s main ingredient, glucomannan, is allegedly not absorbed by the human body. According to the Lipozene class action lawsuit, the product is basically a fiber pill that has no value for its intended purpose.



The Lipozene class action further claimed that Obesity Research Institute and Continuity Products, are simply interlinked shell companies run by the other defendants, Henny den Uijl, and Sandra den Uijl, who have a track record of selling other “worthless supplements.”

The defendants do not admit any wrongdoing but agreed to pay up to $4.6 million to end the Lipozene weight loss class action lawsuit.

Under the settlement, Class Members can make a claim for cash for the Lipozene they purchased. In addition, the defendants have agreed to change their marketing statements about Lipozene.

Class Members with proof of purchase can get $15 per bottle, up to four units. Proof of purchase may include a credit card statement or receipts.

Those without proof of purchase can claim $7 for one unit.

    Considering that the online claim form is broken, and wont let you submit, the classic failure of “add me” seems less idiotic.
