AFC Japan LipoDOWN 2 – My First Slimming Softgel


Recently, I was invited to review a new slimming supplement from AFC Japan. And I was given two different slimming supplements to choose from – LipoDOWN 2 or ActiveSLIM. This new slimming range is 100% natural and safe fat burning formulas.

AFC LipoDOWN 2 targets sedentary lifestyles with little exercise, helping to maximize fat burning round the clock for effective fat loss, inch loss and weight loss.

AFC ActiveSLIM targets active lifestyles who want to boost fat burning efficacy and shed stubborn flabbiness during workouts for slimmer body, improved body definition and shape.

Since I’m not an active person and I hardly exercise anyway, I eventually decided to review the LipoDOWN 2. It is recommended for those with :

  • Excess stubborn fat on multiple body areas
  • Sedentary lifestyle with little exercise


Product Claims

LipoDOWN 2, a new improved formula developed by Nihon Preventive Medical Laboratory Japan, is enhanced with 200% more fat burning prowess than LipoDOWN. It is particularly helpful for those with sedentary lifestyles and is clinically proven to work at the cellular level to shrink massive fat cells and increase fat metabolism for maximum fat burning round the clock.

LipoDOWN 2 works even while the body is at rest, by continuously burning the body’s stored fat, improving metabolic rate and blocking the excess calories from turning into fat. It is a simple, effective and natural fat and weight loss solution.

  • Targets fat loss in the stomach, thighs and hips
  • Promotes thermogenesis to increase metabolism for maximum fat burning
  • Helps shrink bulky fat cells and blocks formation of new fat cells
  • Helps regulate appetite and promote sense of fullness
  • Supports reduction of organ and body fat, healthy blood lipids and blood sugar levels
  • Effective even for sedentary lifestyles with no weight rebounds

Extracted from natural food sources, LipoDOWN 2’s effectiveness is credited to its unique APF Fat Reduction Factors – a concentrated blend of Apple Polyphenols and Fucoxanthin from Activated Japanese Wakame Seaweed – to target unsightly bulges for visible inch and fat loss.

Apple Polyphenols (AP) – Blocks fat and prevents accumulation of new body fat. Extracted from unripe green apple skin which has 10 times more polyphenols than regular apples, it blocks the absorption of excess fats from meals, reduces fat storage and inhibits the formation of fats around organs. With over 75 years of research in apple nutrition, Japanese researchers from Fundamental Research Laboratory and other renowned universities in Japan reported AP extract to be useful in reducing organ fat by 27%.

Fucoxanthin (F) – Extracted from Activated Japanese Wakame Seaweed, Fucoxanthin targets sluggish bulky fat cells at the cellular level. It induces the thermogenesis process to accelerate metabolism and increase the conversion of fat into energy. A research report published in Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism (2010) reported impressive findings – effective weight loss after 42 days of consumption, with some patients reporting up to 7kg of weight loss and a metabolic rate increase of up to 22%, and trigger the body’s fat burning capacity even while at rest. A higher metabolic rate helps burn calories more effectively.



As I age, losing weight can be particularly challenging for me. I have gradually increased my weight from 48kg to 53kg in the recent years.

Each bottle contains 60 softgels and the recommendation dosage for intensive is 4 softgels for intensive and 2 softgels for maintenance. As I ideally hope to bring my weight down to 50kg, I hence only consumer 2 softgels per day.

I have to admit, since I’ve never tried slimming pills before, I was a little skeptical prior trying out the LipoDOWN 2. Naturally, two things came to my mind – safety and side effects. But I’m pleased to learn that LipoDOWN 2 is 100% natural and safe with no diuretic, laxative, appetite suppressant, stimulants and caffeine. And after consuming 2 softgels per day for a week now, I’m glad I have never encountered any side effects at all. I even try consuming the softgels on an empty stomach, thankfully there’s no stomach upset at all.

Though I relatively look slim overall but whenever I put on weight, my face gains weight too. The stubborn fats situated around my tights and stomach seem so hard to get rid of. And due to the lack of exercise and body toning, in this recent years, I have began to notice unsightly cellulite on my tights that is only visible while sitting.

After consuming 2 softgels per day for a week now, I have noticed the cellulite on my tights is superficial less visible. I’ve lost about 1kg and there is a 0.25 inch reduction on my waistline. There is no visible different on my face yet.

Can’t wait to achieve my ideal weight at 50kg real soon.



AFC LipoDOWN 2, retailing at S$92.90 per bottle of 60 softgels, is now available at Unity, Watsons, Guardian, Robinsons, John Little, OG and other leading pharmacies.

      Hi Joseph,

      LipoDOWN 2 can be consumed by any gender. For intensive fat burning, you should take 4 softgels daily, with 2 softgels taken each time before or after meal. Once desired weight is achieved, you can reduce to 2 softgels daily for maintenance .
