LA Five is a diet pill manufactured in the UK by TNC (That Nutrition Company).
The company has only been actively marketing its products since Spring 2015, but when we checked their website, in March 2016, it was no longer active.
This could be seen to suggest the company is having difficulties, and some Amazon reviewers state they failed to receive their orders. None of this inspires confidence.

- #1 BEST SELLER T5 Supplement
- Detox Slimming Supplement
- Strong Effective Weight Loss
- Powerful Pre-Workout Formula
- Fat burning in a bottle

What is LA Five and How Does it Work?
LA Five is unlikely to live up to all the claims made for it because it does not contain any ingredients that are associated with detoxification or T5 fat burning.
T5 fat burners provide ingredients that stimulate the thyroid gland and cause it to release metabolism-boosting hormones.
Several ingredients, including kelp, may achieve this, but the LA Five formulation fails to provide any of them. Nor is the formulation likely to be efficient as per-workout formula, but some of the ingredients utilized may support the fat burning process.
Each capsule contains provides undisclosed amounts of:
- Citrus Aurantium: An ingredient sourced from a citrus fruit. Scientific evidence proves its worth as a weigh loss provider, but unusually high doses can be problematic and the inclusion rate here is unknown.
- Green Tea Extract: The catechins and polyphenols provided by green tea have proven value as weight loss providers and can increase energy expenditure and fat oxidation for up to 24 hours.
- Caffeine: A good energy provider that boosts concentration and mental focus. Caffeine also appears to have the ability to suppress the appetite and speed up the metabolism. For this reason it is a popular supplement ingredient, but any benefits it may offer will be dependant on a sufficient inclusion rate.
- Guarana Extract: A natural ingredient that provides caffeine. Guarana releases its caffeine more slowly than alternative sources. This allows it to provide longer lasting benefits.
- Acetyl L-Carnitine: Some studies suggest acetyl-l-carnitine may have the ability to reduce body fat, but the study results also indicate it may be more effective for elderly users.
- Magnesium Stearate: Supplement manufacturers often add magnesium stearate to their blends because its presence can act like a lubricant and prevent the formulation from sticking to the machinery that is required during the production process.
- Silicia: An ingredient that is generally used to enhance the flow of powders and reduce the likelihood of clumps forming during the blending process.
LA Five Customer Testimonials
Although the Amazon sales page contains a wealth of positive feedback that appears to suggests an effective product, the “1 star” reviews make interesting reading and indicate TNC may have been attempting to manipulate Amazon’s system.
One lady claims she was offered free product in exchange for placing a review even though she had never used the pills. She then states: “If you need to bribe people to write a review they can’t be good.”
Several of the reviews placed by dissatisfied customers mention order fulfilment problems. Many of those who received their orders claim the product does not work and a few customers even claim to have put on weight during the supplementation period.
LA Five Side Effects & Health Issues
TNC states the formulation is unsuitable for pregnant or lactating women or people who suffer from allergies. Anyone who is using medication should seek a doctor’s advice before they commence supplementation. Users who experience side effects should cease supplementation and consult a doctor.
