AMPilean PinkAMPilean Pink is a female-only fat burning supplement developed by Lecheek Nutrition. The company is based in Arkansas and market a number of other products, all of which seem to be designed to be more appealing to bodybuilders and other gym-goers.

As far as we can ascertain AMPilean Pink first became available in 2015 but by the time of this review (June 2016) the product was no longer listed for sale on the Lecheek Nutrition website.

When products vanish from manufacturer’s websites it generally indicates they have been discontinued. This seemed strange for a relatively new product, so we did some checking and found this warning letter, sent to Lecheek Nutrition by the FDA on April 24, 2015.

The letter refers to AMPilean Pink and another product called AMPitropin (also absent from Lecheek’s website). Both products contain AMP Citrate (also called DMBA). The FDA says AMP Citrate cannot be classed as a dietary ingredient or lawfully marketed as such in the USA.

At the time of this review some third-party retailers were still marketing the product, but AMP Citrate was not mentioned in the ingredient list.

Further checks brought us to this blog post, published on the Lecheek Nutrition website. It states the company has decided to stop producing AMPilean and AMPitropin until they “revamp the formulas”. The post appears to have been backdated to October 2014.

What is AMPilean Pink and How Does it Work?

Waist MeasureThe product was advertised to provide women with three main benefits:

  • Boosted metabolism
  • Reduced water weight
  • Healthy skin

AMPilean Pink contains dandelion root, which is a diuretic, so it will probably help reduce the amount of water the body retains.

This may tip the scales in the right direction, but water levels will return to normal when supplementation is discontinued. True weight loss occurs when body fat is reduced.

Key Ingredients

One capsule appears to provide:

  • Vitamin A (300 IU): Supports the immune system and is also necessary for healthy skin and good eyesight.
  • Vitamin B6 (15mg): A water soluble vitamin that acts as a co-enzyme during the breakdown of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins.

AMPilean Pink Blend (447mg)

  • Di-Caffeine Malate: A compound that is made by bonding caffeine with malic acid and was originally used in Coca Cola. It is believed to offer the same benefits as caffeine (extra energy, fat burning, improved focus) and be easier to tolerate.
  • Dandelion Root Extract: A popular diuretic that can reduce the amount of water the body retains.
  • Octopamine HCl: An organic chemical that is believed to function as a metabolism booster and may also improve lipolysis.
  • Green Coffee Bean Extract: The chlorogenic acid provided by green coffee beans is included for its purported fat burning abilities and may further enhance weight loss by regulating blood sugar levels and lessening the desire for sweet food.
  • Hydrolyzed Bovine Collagen Powder: A collagen-providing ingredient. Many claims are made about the benefits collagen supplements may provide including improved digestion, fat loss, and better skin quality.
  • Garcinia Cambogia (50% HCA): A fruit extract that provides hydroxycitric acid (HCA). The compound has a good reputation as a weight loss provider, but the Oz website states the extract should contain at least 60% HCA so, in this case, the quality of the extract used is questionable.
  • Bioperene: A patented black pepper extract that assists the smooth absorption of other ingredients.
Usage Instructions – Only one capsule is required per day and Lecheek state it should be taken after breakfast.

Customer Feedback has one customer review left by someone who claims the product improved her focus and gave her a “bit of energy”.

It is not the most enthusiastic review we have ever read and we were unable to find any reviews on other sites.

Side Effects & Health Issues

microscopePresuming the blend does not contain DMBA, most women should be able to use AMPilean Pink without encountering problems.

However, the caffeine content may make the product unsuitable for anyone who does not tolerate stimulants well.

Lecheek state their product is not intended for anyone who is under 21 years of age and say it should not be used by pregnant or nursing mothers or people who have a family history of heart disease.

Anyone who is using medication or has any health concerns or worries about the product or its suitability should consult a doctor before using AMPilean Pink.

Purchasing Options & Considerations

AMPilean Pink is no longer available from the manufacturer’s website, but it is still possible to make a purchase via the online store.

The price is $27.53 per (45 capsule) bottle. A1 Supplements also still appears to be marketing the product and their price is a few cents cheaper.


There does not appear to be a money back guarantee.

The Bottom Line

Lecheek Ampilean PinkAMPilean Pink contains a few good ingredients so it is possible the supplement may be capable of assisting weight loss, but the amounts provided are not stated and may be insufficient to provide good results.

In theory the product may have value, the reality may be very different so the fact that it has been discontinued is not a great great loss when so many better options are available.
