Great Value for Price
I am using this to replace LOWAT from another big brand that was very pricey. I am getting the same results with this less expensive product from Swanson.

Not really effective
I doubt whether this product is effective, since I haven't noticed any change yet after a continuous use of one month.

Great for Baby Boomers
I have been using Lowat for about 6 months. I am 66 years old, work full time, & exercise 2-3 times a week. I wanted to lose about 15-20 lbs, but mainly to get rid of the midrift bulge, which is much more difficult as you age. I researched Lowat & found it promotes the "adenopectin" which is the enzyme that acts on fat. No side effects with Lowat & I only use it before lunch & dinner. This is not a "miracle capsule", but if you eat wisely & watch portions-you will see results. I was > 160, am now 142 & went from a size 14 to size 8. My goal is to be between 135-140.

I bought this product to lose weight, I didn't drop one pound or any inches.

For some people like myself, stress can trigger a hormone in our body and cause weight gain. This is an 'overload' of cortisal. I take LOWAT everyday to help maintain my cortisal levels, and it has helped. I am working out, dieting and for the first time I'm actually losing weight (witht he help of other vitamins of course)! This is no miracle pill! You do have to commit to diet and exercise!

Increased my appetite
I kept meaning to return the unused bottles of this, but forgot. For me, I noticed a greatly increased appetite when i took them as directed.

Helpful, but not drastic
After two months on Lowat, I DID drop 10 lbs! I never thought I would be under 150lbs again! Due to fibromylagia, I can not exercise as vigorously as I would like, but I walked at least 30 mins a day and kept my calories no more than 2K a day. I noticed that when taking this I am fuller faster at meal time. The hard thing is timing. You are supposed to take it 30 mins prior to eating and that is hard for me to always do. After I ran out of my two month supply, I tried to just keep up the walking and 2K maximum calories a day and guess what? I'm up four pounds already in the six weeks without it! I'm drinking my water, taking good supplements, walking everyday, taking coconut oil daily as well as aiming for one glass of fresh vegetable juice a day and still the weight is creeping back up. I did NOT experience gas like some other reviewers did. There is something about this that gives one a boost when one can not or refuses to go to extreme measures to lose weight. It will not be a magic wand, more like a helping hand! And being 45, I'll take what ever help I can get!
With Swanon's guarantee, what do you have to lose but possibly those nagging 10 lbs that make a world of difference! I say try it and see what happens!

I was hoping this product would help me get off my weight loss plateau. I've just completed a month's use with very careful diet and exercise, and I haven't lost a thing. No side-effects, so it didn't hurt to try. But I am disappointed.

I'm finishing my 3rd bottle, I wanted to stick with it to give it a chance, but it has done nothing. I already eat healthy and work out daily, this product did not work for me.

Waste of money
I have been using this product for about 1 month now- along with diet and exercise. I have seen no addtional benefits from using this. Save your money this one is a waste. Many other options that are much better.

Does Not Work
This product did nothing for me. I wish I would have saved my money.

Me and my wife have been taking this product for about 3 months and have not noticed a change.

Adverse Effects on Me ...
I got alot of gas and was really bloated when taking Lowat. Following this I also got constipated and would have a headache every night. I think this surely is giving me bad side effects. With all this said I really can't even say that it did anything for weight lose in the almost 4 weeks of taking it.

ayurvedic means longevity knowledge
This is a ayurvedic herbal preparation from India, I believe it has something to it.
I'm into my 6th week with this and have lost more than 6 lbs. You have to exercise routinely ( I do 5 days a week) and watch what you eat ( I don't diet and eat everything in moderation except processed junk)
Its main benefit for me is that I've tried to lose that last 10 lbs to my weight goal and was stuck at a level I wasn't going beyond. This seems to given me the tool to reach my goal and today I DID IT.
Almost 60, Big bones, 6'2" tall and 190 lbs. YES!

One of the Best Weight Loss Products
I waited two months after I started taking Lowat so that I could give a valid opinion of the product.
I think this is one of the most effective weight loss products to come along in the past ten years.
I have lost 5 pounds in two months, which I attribute to the appetite-reducing property of this supplement since I had been losing weight at a two-pound per month rate before that. In addition, I didn't have to exercise harder than what I usually do or change my healthy diet any more than it was.
I have recommended this product to some people I know who have been looking for something new to jump-start their weight loss program.

I have been using this product for 3 weeks and have noticed significant fat loss. I have also begun eating healthier and working out, and although my overall weight has not changed my waistline has decreased 1 inch. My ab definition is slowly returning as the fat disappears. Good product when combined with exercise and a healthy eating habits.

It did state very clearly in the ad that this a great supplement to diet and exercise. So if you aren't planning on doing any exercise or following a healthy eating plan, then this isn't your miracle pill. However, hand in hand with some committed effort, this stuff helps show results fast. I've been taking it for about 3 weeks, and I've lost 6 lbs. I've eaten moderately but not strictly, and started walking more. Normally, my body will not lose that quickly without more effort. I give it an A+!!

I bought this because of the write up in the catalog so I took it for a month. I saw no results and found it to be useless . I lost no weight with this so I would say steer clear of it.

More Energy Than Expected
I took this product with Red Grapefruit Bioflavonoid and it seemed to boost my energy immensely. I had a noticeable decrease in my appetite. I only take the Grapefruit with it in the morning.
