Kion Lean is a proprietary formula designed to assist with weight management and healthy longevity that combines the benefits of Glycostat® Wild Bitter Melon Extract and Kingsun™ Rock Lotus Extract to support:

  • Healthy liver function*
  • Blood sugar regulation*
  • Healthy body fat levels*
  • Anti-aging factors associated with longevity*

So where do these ingredients come from, and why are they used in Kion Lean? It all starts in two of the earth’s “blue zones” where people live to an incredibly long age in good health.

There are just a handful of true blue zones or longevity hotspots in the world. One is Bama County, located in western China on the slopes of the Himalayas. This place boasts at least 79 men and women over 100 years old and still very physically active out of a population of less than 230,000. Their ratio of 3.52 centenarians per 10,000 people is the highest found anywhere in the world. Bama County has a secret: their residents have the longest average lifespan of any other country in the world.

Amongst Japan’s many islands, the people of Okinawa are also the longest-lived. Okinawa also has a secret very similar to Bama County – and in both Bama County and Okinawa medical researchers have found that key foods play a significant role in the longevity of the inhabitants.

In Bama County, much credit is given to the daily consumption of a plant they call shilianhua, or “rock lotus”. In Okinawa, a role similar to that of rock lotus is filled by “wild bitter melon”. This is not the bitter melon commonly found in many vegetable markets, but a smaller and far more bitter version that grows wild. Both rock lotus and bitter melon are in Kion Lean. So what do the rock lotus and wild bitter melon in Kion Lean have in common that promote optimal blood sugar levels and insulin response that support healthy weight management, liver health, and longevity?*

The answer involves caloric restriction and insulin.

Only two mechanisms have been shown to be successful in promoting longevity in higher organisms. The first mechanism lowers the levels of insulin and insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1). The second mechanism restricts calories, which usually has, as one result, a lowering of circulating insulin levels. Rock lotus influences both of these mechanisms.* According to a Jutendo Medical University of Japan clinical trial, rock lotus improves liver function and fatty liver.* This action resembles that of compounds known to reduce insulin levels as an aspect of healthy blood glucose control.* Rock lotus has also been found to be able to regulate glucose metabolism and maintain healthy insulin sensitivity in vitro and in vivo.*

Wild bitter melon is similarly health promoting. For example, it has been found that extracts of the wild bitter melon activate cellular machinery to regulate energy production (technically AMPK-activated protein kinase) and the way that fats are handled by the liver.* Activation of this metabolic pathway is important to aging.* Activation of AMPK is an aspect of the benefits derived from exercise. The effect of an extract from the wild genotype of bitter melon called Glycostat® has proved to be more powerful than others on the market and much more consistent in producing positive results.*

In short, Glycostat® Wild Bitter Melon Extract and Kingsun™ Rock Lotus Extract work better in combination. Both promote better blood sugar control with less insulin.* Both promote healthy blood pressure.* Both support healthy liver function.* And both mimic changes in cellular energy metabolism typical of caloric restriction.*

So even if you can’t live in a longevity hotspot such as Bama County or Okinawa, Kion Lean can bring the longevity hotspot to you, all while supporting a healthy, lean physique!

    So awesome, I purchased another bottle! Love this stuff

    • Team Kion

      You’re awesome, Laz!

  2. Shawn

    Love this quality product! I just started using it when I eat a ton of carbs. It does help you with maintaining or ( I have noticed lowering body fat). Thank you Ben and Kion for creating this awesome product!

    • Team Kion

      Thanks for sharing your results, Shawn!

  3. Meredith Anderson

    I ordered this because I am trying to keep my blood sugar down. I figured it was worth a try because Kion’s other products are so good, and I wasn’t disappointed! I have been taking it in the afternoon and have found that I no longer feel the need to chow down when I get home! I think it is well worth the price if it helps me lose weight!

  4. Margaret

    Best ever….I take it before every meal and keep it in my purse so if we go out I can have the tasty rolls with no worries. 🙂

  5. Van

    Expensive and didn’t do anything for me.

  6. Mercedez

    I take a few of the reccomend vitamins by Ben Greenfield. After 30 days I didn’t really notice a difference. I am insulin resistant and struggle with blood sugar levels. This wasn’t a cure for it. Even eating low carb.

  7. Susan

    All products are excellent, but way too pricey, including the coffee( not even a pound for $19.99!

    • Team Kion

      Thank you for the feedback! We take great pride in providing the cleanest, most-antioxidant rich coffee we could find. Getting the best can be a little pricier, but we’re constantly working to improve the value we can offer to you <3

  8. Adam

    Ben, I love your podcasts and you know your shit. But why are your supplements so f’n expensive? I currently rotate Bitter Melon and Metformin for probably 1/4 of the price. As a man of science and supplements I’m also surprised you use proprietary blends. Granted, there are only two ingredients but I’ve made it a personal mantra to not use supplements that use proprietary blends. Just no reason for it unless I’m missing something. Also, why no Berberine? So unfortunately I will pass on this, but keep up the good work otherwise.

  9. Katie Kollath

    Love Kion Lean. I have noticed significant differences in my mood and fatigue when taking Lean before my biggest carb rich meal. I feel 10x better and noticed the carbs are actually fueling my workouts better the following morning after I started taking Kion Lean. Fantastic product!

    • Team Kion

      Thanks Katie! Awesome to hear you are experiencing profound benefits from Lean <3

  10. Lee Maasen

    After learning about the importance of overall health concerning Glycemic Variability(blood sugar spiking and dropping). I wanted to take my health into my own hands and take control of my blood sugar levels. I take this before every large or high carbohydrate meal and immediately noticed a difference. I later began to test my blood after eating a carbohydrate meal and this product works like magic. I have been taking the product now for 4 months and even have a few family members taking it as well. Gaining a 6 pack seems to be a product of just being HEALTHY. Thank you KION!!!

  11. Margaret

    Freakin awesome ….rocked out ten pounds of unwanted weight. Feel great

  12. Mary

    I personally saw no difference – good or bad. An expensive trial on my part, as I ordered multiple bottles based on other reviews & to reduce shipping costs (outside of US). Lesson learned!

  13. John Elam

    I just started taking this product last night. I’m on my second dose. Obviously I haven’t noticed anything yet, but I’m hopeful this will work. I am currently doing low-carb dieting, so I’ve been losing weight fairly steadily regardless, but I purchased this to hopefully boost results. I’ll report back in about a month with an update. I’ll attempt to ascertain how much additional weight loss is due to the low-carb diet, versus the Kion Lean.

  14. leblanc.gregory

    Just started, still working out the best time to take it. All in all so far there is a positive noticeable affect

  15. D

    So far working good, easy to digest with no stomach upset. Thanks for making a quality, clean supplement. A++

  16. Felix

    This might be one of the single most over-priced products I have ever seen. Google the two ingredients, and you’ll be able to get them delivered (separately) on Amazon for a tiny fraction of the price.

  17. elisegresdal

    Good product, but the price is way too high (hence the three stars)

  18. Jonathan Housworth

    I’m not diabetic, but I’m heavy. I check my Blood Pressure and Blood Sugar frequently. It keeps my Blood Glucose right around 90 after a meal. My blood pressure has normalized as well. I don’t always get time to workout, but I’ve noticed the weight loss without weighing myself!

  19. bjeans.per2014

    I am 74 years old. I am insulin resistance & always under lots of stress (tax account, still work). Recently I started having high blood pressure when historically it has been on the low side. I felt REALLY bad! Started taking Mercola’s blood pressure as well as Hawthorne berries, but was barley able to get through the workday, muchless exercise. Started this product, saw amazing results with first use. I DO agree that these are pricey, hence 4 stars.

  20. Alex w.

    I really like this product. Great workouts, more energy.. Very easy to use. No silly flavors or tastes.

  21. Bobby

    I’ve been on a caloric deficit and I use this for my higher carb meals. Unlike other fat burners and weight loss products out there, this won’t give you weird side effects and its all natural. My second bottle is on the way. I feel like this particular product is a little pricey though and I wouldn’t mind if the price came down a notch.

  22. sodmount

    What a fantastic product. This is one of the best products you could have come up with. When I do have a heavy carb meal (at least once a week, maybe twice) I have this product to turn to. It is my ‘fairy dust NO GUILT BABY’ product. You know those times when you say “I wish someone would come up with a product”…and you did. Thanks Ben!

  23. Mehva Renaye

    I took this for about six months and like the ingredient. I try to eat low carb in general. The price and the timing it before i ate was tricky for me. I didn’t do any testing so don’t know if it was actually doing anything.

  24. mz62224

    This stuff works! I lost 2 inches in my waist within 1 month of using Lean with no other changes to diet or training.

  25. amy

    Lean has become a staple of my daily supplementation. I don’t eat a lot of sugar but for higher carb meals, it works extremely well to keep my body level. I can feel the difference if I don’t take it. I’ve used Bitter Melon extract by itself, with decent results, but this formulation gives my body the extra edge in biohacking!

  26. Angie

    I really like this supplement. I started taking it (Ben’s Bitter Melon Extract from his previous store) after listening to him talk about the benefits of lowering blood glucose after heavier carb meals. I have not actually tested my blood glucose with a monitor but trust that Ben’s product is working as he said it will. I give it four stars because the price is VERY HIGH. I have seen bitter melon in natural food stores for a 3rd of the price. I get that Ben is putting his name behind the quality of this product but the mark-up he has on it is a bit offensive.

  27. John Shoffner

    I’ve used this starting as MPX100 back in the day to experiment with glucose control. Works pretty good, you just need to get the timing down to take before meals. I think it even works if you plan a meal off your normal diet and you want to keep glucose in line. I love low glucose and on keto diet this is a great tool for me to keep my numbers where I want them. Thanks for another great tool, Kion! -JS

  28. Kelsey

    I started taking Lean as recommended, with my heaviest carb meal of the day, and definitely felt the benefits but I wanted to know if it was actually working. So I did a little n=1 experiment and tested my blood glucose after a carb-heavy meal without Lean, and then the next day with the same exact meal and time, but after taking 2 caps of Lean. Kion Lean actually dropped my blood sugar ~20 points! I was a believer before, but now I always keep it on hand to keep my blood sugar in check. Love this stuff.

  29. sodmount

    I have just started to take this if I feel I have had two many carbs with dinner. I trust Ben and hope it is doing it’s job. I’ll keep you posted. Thanks Ben for making a product like this and I liked the video you have on this page! Learned something new once again from you!

  30. James

    As advertised. Use Kion Lean prior to a heavy carb meal and keeps everything in check.
