Since Garcinia Cambogia hit the headlines there have been countless weight-loss brands and supplement companies jumping on the band wagon of this so-called ‘holy grail of diet pills’. It’s important to know what to look for when purchasing any supplement for obvious health reasons, but also, who wants to spend a small fortune on something that will not work?
For starters, research into HCA and Garcinia Cambogia has looked at the supplement at differing quantities in order to work out the optimum amount of HCA. The results of this research are consistent at recommending 50% HCA per 1000mg dose.
A lower percentage of HCA may have poorer results overall, while a higher percentage of HCA may result in some nasty side-effects; diarrhoea and stomach cramps for example.
Secondly, make sure that the company selling the product has a clear and concise list of ingredients per tablet. There should be no fillers of bulkers included in any kind of supplement and the ingredients should always state ‘HCA (Garcinia Cambogia)’ or ‘GCE’ (Garcinia Cambogia Extract).
Each tablet should contain no less that 400-500mg of Garcinia Cambogia (taking two tablets a day to equate to 1000mg daily).
Don't be duped by 'free trial' scams
And finally, make sure that the company you are purchasing from is reputable. There should be no offer of a ‘free trial’, which is usually a clever little trick to get you to inadvertently sign up to an autoship program.
Autoship programs are money making scams and involve not-so-reputable companies automatically taking a direct debit from your account while shipping you unwanted products. The best way to check for these types of scams is to see what other customers are saying online.
There may not be a Customer Comments section on the website itself (which is a sure fire way of knowing they are not be trusted), so check them out online with a simple Google search.
Any genuine supplier of quality products will offer you, upfront, all the details you need concerning the ingredients of its supplements as well as its own contact information, a clear and easy to reach customer services department and a variety of positive customer reviews and feedback.
Take care when ordering Garcinia Cambogia online, and don’t always go for the ‘cheaper’ alternative, it may not be the best option.
