Lean PM is an interesting take on the world of fat burners, in that it's actually more of a sleep aid supplement catered to those on restricted calorie diets. As we all know getting the right amount of restful sleep is actually a core part of weight loss, and that's what Lean PM is leaning on (sorry), ensuring you manage to drift off into pleasant dreams to get the optimal metabolic rate for the following day, despite your calorie deficit.
All that in mind, realistically speaking Lean PM lacks some of the ingredients we like to see in a night time fat burner, and as such a recommendation for general purpose would be irresponsible. It's certainly got it's uses however, and has some great ingredients for appetite suppressant such as 5HTP, but all in all this is really only something that will be useful for those of you who are looking at achieving a very low body fat percentage or perhaps for those of you who are struggling to lose weight because of difficulty sleeping and/or hunger cravings late in evening.
The problem is that it claims to be a fat burner, and it’s not. It is a decent supplement to help you sleep whilst restricting calories to the point it effects your sleep. But we wouldn’t recommend it for a first port of call as it’s a highly specialised supplement.
the best source for research is to see how others have responded to the
product. Lean PM is of course no exception for this, and we found a generally
positive reception on Amazon with 4 stars out of 5 with very little fakes.
Many people stating the success this had, helping them to overcome their night-time snacking habits. Most of the negative reviews either claimed there was no effect, or interestingly some outlined a problem with waking up, Looking at the ingredients and dosage, this isn't an outcome we'd expect caused by Lean PM alone unless they were hyper responders to melatonin as this is a known side effect albeit a rare one. So, if you've had issues with this in the past already, it's worth looking elsewhere for your night time fat loss supplement needs.
Does Lean PM work?
Why is it that the most burning questions are typically so complicated to answer? Ofcourse the answer to this question depends on your goals and how you plan on achieving them. In terms of the ingredients and dosage, we believe that Lean PM will help you to fall asleep faster, help you into a deeper sleep and help suppress food cravings and as such, when paired with healthy lifestyle habits, would help work towards your goals. That said, it is not the best fat burner sleep aid on the market, and will not be able to lose weight for you effectively without a lot of work on your end. For those in this situation, there's others on the market that will better stimulate your metabolism, suppress your appetite all while helping you get a good night's rest.
Is Lean PM safe?
There's nothing contained in Lean PM that is a cause for concern, though it's always worth checking with your doctor if you're on any kind of medication, although in most cases we wouldn't expect any notable leanPM side effects.
A common ingredient in fat burners that we're normally more thrilled to see. Don't misunderstand us, Vitamin B6 has some effects related to metabolic rate, but that mainly allows one to remain more energetic on a calorie deficit. We don't really see the function that provides to Lean PM as a sleep aid supplement, as it seems to work against the main goals. Though you might be considering that it will help you lose weight through more efficient metabolic conversion, remember that there are many ingredients that would be more effective at this without going against the main strengths and focus of the product as a whole.
This inclusion is definitely warranted. Magnesium deficiency is known to cause restless sleep and although it's not a very common ailment, it's worth baring in mind that the likelihood is increased when eating a low calorie diet and as such we find it's inclusion to be a very welcome one, this is a good ingredient for a sleep aid, so makes since for LeanPM.
Green tea extract
Just as with Vitamin B6, Green tea extract is a common and usually much more welcome ingredient for a stimulant fat burner. But, that's not because it contains caffeine, it's more because of it's appetite suppressant qualities. That said it is one of the cheaper and quite common ingredients for fat burners. It's a fine inclusion, but overall it's something of a b tier ingredient, it does have some positive impact, but it is a relatively minimal one.
Despite sounding like a character from a fantasy novel, L-Theanine is an ingredient we're very much happy to see included and effectively dosed in Lean PM. At this dosage you'll find that you'll not only fall asleep faster, but will have a higher quality sleep as well by promoting relaxation in the brain. It helps reduce the excitatory chemicals natural present, allowing you to drift off more easily.
Shown to help people get into a restful sleep it does seem to be one of the most effective over the counter supplements available for this. It’s a good inclusion for what Lean PM is actually for.
Great for craving suppression, it’s included in a lot of better weight loss aids, it has no effect on fat burning persay, but it does help suppress cravings for unhealthy foods, it’s even been tested in patients under brain scan and was a prescription only option for a long time before becoming available over the counter. There’s plenty of evidence to support LeanPM Night Time Fat Burner including 5htp for this use.
Lean PM could be a decent extra to have as a weight loss aid, but it’s by no means the best, if the issue that you have is specifically the fact that you struggle to get to sleep whilst dieting then it’s not terrible. But, that is it’s only use case, and we still wouldn’t recommend it over some of it’s better competition, but it’s a solid 7/10. Not the best, but not terrible.
The catch is that LeanPM claims to burn fat, so if we’re scoring it as a fat burner it scores poorly, very poorly. It’s got a couple of B tier ingredients in the tea extract and the vitamins, and one good one in 5htp, but the latter is really for craving suppression.
In short we don’t mind LeanPM as a product if it was marketed correctly. The problem is that we’re reviewing it based on it’s claims. And it claims to boost metabolism, and help you burn fat……
Better sleep yes, anything else, no.
