Miracle Garcinia Cambogia

If you asked anyone to name as many fruits as they could, garcinia cambogia would not show up on most people’s lists. But this lesser known fruit is gaining international fame as a potent and natural weight loss ingredient. Capitalizing on the plant’s new-found fame, Miracle Garcinia Cambogia is a diet pill using garcinia cambogia as its one and only ingredient.

But can garcinia cambogia really induce weight loss? And is Miracle Garcinia Cambogia the best product available with this ingredient? I’ve researched this product and its main ingredient to help you judge for yourself.

Miracle Garcinia Cambogia: The Ingredients

The miracle ingredient in this diet pill is garcinia cambogia, a natural source of hydroxycitric acid. Miracle Garcinia Cambogia credits hydroxycitric acid with discouraging fat storage, suppressing appetite, and increasing serotonin production.

The good news about hydroxycitric acid is that several scientific trials in both animals and humans link it with weight loss. Unfortunately, the most promising human trial involved obese participants who took incredibly large doses of HCA, close to 5000 mg a day. [1]

Even on those huge doses, these people lost only 5 to 6 percent of their body weight in eight weeks. Since the participants also ate a strict diet and participated in light exercise, some of that weight loss might not even be attributable to hydroxycitric acid.

Miracle Garcinia Cambogia never states explicitly how much garcinia cambogia is in one capsule of this diet pill. But I’m positive it’s nowhere in the neighborhood of 5000 mg. And if it isn’t, Miracle Garcinia Cambogia cannot promise the same results as the clinical trial.

Miracle Garcinia Cambogia: The Reviews

After investigating the ingredients, I had little confidence that Miracle Garcinia Cambogia is an effective weight loss pill. Still, I gave it the benefit of the doubt and looked for consumer reviews as another way to judge this product.

I located about 30 brief reviews of Miracle Garcinia Cambogia. Every single one of these reviewers noticed losing weight on Miracle Garcinia Cambogia. Most of these reviewers said they would recommend this product to others.

Normally, I’m happy to see so many positive reviews of a diet pill. But in this case, I was less than impressed. Both of the websites with these entirely positive reviews link directly back to MiracleGarciniaCambogia.com. This means they are likely affiliated with the company that makes and sells Miracle Garcinia Cambogia. If they are, I cannot trust these reviews to be unbiased.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any consumer reviews of Miracle Garcinia Cambogia on sites that are not linked directly to MiracleGarciniaCambogia.com. I’d be curious to see what customers say when they are not reviewing this product on an official website.

Miracle Garcinia Cambogia: The Price

Every bottle of Miracle Garcinia Cambogia has a one-month supply of 60 capsules. MiracleGarciniaCambogia.com appears to be the only place to buy this product. The following are the site’s prices:

• 1 bottle: $48
• 2 bottles with one free bottle: $98
• 3 bottles with two free bottles: $148

Because MiracleGarciniaCambogia.com doesn’t advertise any kind of money-back guarantee, I took a look at the terms and conditions on the website. The site does provide a phone number to call customer service because return requests are handled on a case-by-case basis. But the terms also state in all caps that the company does not process returns of empty bottles. It seems getting a refund if the product doesn’t cause weight loss might be quite an ordeal.

Miracle Garcinia Cambogia: The Directions

If I had any confidence left in Miracle Garcinia Cambogia, the website’s lack of usage directions shattered it. There is almost no information about how to take Miracle Garcinia Cambogia.

I did find one small instruction hidden in an infographic that was not placed very prominently on the website. Customers are told to take 500 to 1000 mg before each meal. This dosing information suggests that one capsule of Miracle Garcinia Cambogia contains 500 mg. Since a one-month supply contains 60 capsules, the daily dose must be two capsules, or 1000 mg. As I suspected, this dose is nowhere near the 5000 mg that was effective in the clinical trial.

If anyone buys Miracle Garcinia Cambogia, I hope the bottle comes with clearer usage directions, because these are hardly satisfactory. I have more trust in a product when potential side effects and warnings are disclosed directly on the product website. Miracle Garcinia Cambogia fails to earn my confidence once again.

Miracle Garcinia Cambogia: The Verdict

Miracle Garcinia Cambogia is not an impressive diet pill in any respect. It has a high price but no money-back guarantee. The consumer reviews are untrustworthy. The product website doesn’t provide clear information about use or side effects. And the main ingredient is only known to produce weight loss in high doses. Consumers should skip Miracle Garcinia Cambogia and look for a diet pill that inspires greater confidence.

    Thank you for this information. I was looking for some HONEST infomration regarding this product and it seems I got what I was looking for! Thanks again…it kept me from wasting my money.

    It seems to me that just because Dr. Oz endorses a product that everyone runs to get it. I feel that Dr. Oz is paid for his endorsements and he is not really into helping people as much as he claims he is.

    I came across the article the day after I ordered and I am saddened that everything you have written is true. The bottle says take two caps daily( 1000mg total). I did my research before I ordered and the web is bombarded with “amazing reviews” of the product. This article was on the 4th page of results. I truly hope other consumers see this article before purchasing.
