Why is Garcinia Cambogia so popular?
Not only was it mentioned on a popular TV show where a leading doctor endorsed its weight loss effects, but numerous studies show Garcinia Cambogia to be the most effective weight loss supplement currently on the market.
The most famous clinical study of Garcinia Cambogia was published in the Current Therapeutic Research® journal, scientists used Garcinia Cambogia with 60% HCA to study its weight loss effects. What they found was that it causes significant weight loss, lowers food intake and body weight gain, as well as tackles factors such as cholesterol, low-density lipoproteins, triglycerides and serum leptin levels.

Other studies have been conducted on its weight loss effects against various placebos. Each one found Garcinia Cambogia to outperform those placebos and aid in significant weight loss.
In a recent study published in the Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism Journal, scientists used Garcinia Cambogia with 60% HCA to study its weight loss effects. What they found was that it causes significant weight loss, lowers food intake and body weight gain as well as tackles factors such as cholesterol, low-density lipoproteins, triglycerides and serum leptin levels.

How Does Garcinia Cambogia work?
The HCA extract from the Garcinia Cambogia supplement aids in weight loss by doing two things: It helps to block fat and suppress your appetite.
HCA blocks fat by inhibiting the main enzyme that makes fat from carbohydrates: Citrate Lyase. Usually carbohydrates or sugars that are not used immediately or stored in other forms are converted into fats. When the HCA inhibits Citrate Lyase, the fat-making process, as well as the production of LDL (bad cholesterol) and triglycerides, is halted.
HCA also suppresses appetite by increasing serotonin levels. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter in your brain that makes you feel good. It’s a target of many antidepressant medications. Having low levels of serotonin may make you feel depressed or anxious; it drives many people into emotional or reactive eating. By increasing serotonin levels, HCA improves mood and suppresses the drive to react to stressful situations with food. As you eat less, your body senses this and it releases stored fat in your fat cells.
But the real question is: Which Garcinia Cambogia Supplement do you use?
Just Google Garcinia Cambogia and you’ll see this for yourself: 25 companies are all offering their own version of the supplement. Of course, knowing which one to choose can get confusing fast. With so many companies out there selling a similar product, how do you know which one uses the best, high-quality ingredients without making the supplement less effective by watering it down with unnecessary ingredients?
With so many products, it’s also no surprise that people have serious concerns when it comes to finding a good supplement online. Here were some of our own concerns, which we know are shared by many people looking for Garcinia Cambogia:
- They sometimes don’t work: this is the main reason people I’ve spoken to are afraid to try Garcinia Cambogia. And they’re justified because many of the products on the market don’t contain the right ingredients in the right proportions or doses to be effective.
- They’re expensive: Some companies sell Garcinia Cambogia for as much as $100 per bottle. That’s a lot to invest in a product you’re unsure about.
- Side effects: Some Garcinia Cambogia blends include filler ingredients like caffeine that make up for a shortage of ingredients with stimulants and other fillers.
- They’re just taking advantage of a trend: This was a popular sentiment felt by many. Fly-by-night companies toss a hot-selling word like “ultra,” “premium,” or “natural” in front of the supplement’s name in order to get it out the door fast.
So how can you tell which Garcinia Cambogia supplements are the real deal? And what should you look for when deciding which brand you want to try?
The first thing we considered is reputation. Loads of companies will jump on a trend and sell nothing but that hot product because they know there’s a demand. If the Garcinia Cambogia you find isn’t backed by a reputable seller, you should steer clear of that company. These people only want your money and most likely don’t care about selling you a high-quality product.
The second thing we found is the importance of third-party testing. Most of the brands that didn’t even make it past our initial round had no third-party testing to verify the ingredients or effectiveness of the product.
We know you don’t have the time or extra money to waste trying to wade through the latest fat-burning craze. So we took the guess work out of it for you by researching several brands of Garcinia Cambogia ourselves.
Our Research Method
For Garcinia Cambogia to actually work, it has to have the right ingredients in the right proportions. And that’s where one of the biggest problems always arises.
Many of the ingredients that make up a good Garcinia Cambogia supplement aren’t cheap. So companies will buy less effective, cheaper extracts to use in their products. Other companies use fillers, binders, and synthetic ingredients to help cut costs.
For example, some Garcinia Cambogia companies will include the right ingredients, but the HCA extract they use (that’s the active ingredient that helps people lose weight) is not the same as what scientists used in clinical trials. When this happens, the company can save a lot of money, and the customer gets fooled.
To conduct our research, we got our hands on as many brands of Garcinia Cambogia as possible–40 in total–and found out which ones have the right ingredients in the right proportions, because quality is the cornerstone to a good Garcinia Cambogia supplement.
After that, we found real customers who used these products and learned from their own experiences. We then used all these factors to compare the best Garcinia Cambogia products on the market today.
What our Research Found
As we predicted, the vast majority of products we tested just didn’t have the high-quality ingredients in the right proportions to make them effective.
What we looked for: A good Garcinia Cambogia supplement should be at least 1,500mg, contain 60% HCA (the plant’s active ingredient), potassium to help with absorption–and nothing else. This benchmark test alone immediately eliminated about half of the products we gathered.
The remaining brands had the right ingredients, but after researching the companies and their customers’ experiences, we had to eliminate them as well. After all, even if a company sells a good product, why would we recommend them if they refuse to stand by their satisfaction guarantees?
What about the brands that did make our list? Though few in number, there are a few products out there that actually work. Customers reported losing lots of weight–some in as little as one week–and the companies selling these products are established, reputable, and have some of the best return policies in the business.
Some of the men and women we talked to loved these brands so much, they take advantage of big discounts by ordering their supplements in bulk so they never run out. Now that’s a ringing endorsement.
Our Top Picks
Out of every product we tested, Whole Body Research was the highest quality supplement and the only one we can safely recommend you purchase.
They use the exact recommended dosage for maximum results with 60% HCA extract and potassium. They don’t use fillers, binders, or synthetics, and use only veggie capsules. And, unlike other products, they are not a fly-by-night company and don’t use any billing schemes – which is quite common in with any type of supplement mentioned on The Dr. Oz show.
The reputation of the brand – Whole Body Research is top notch. They pride themselves on only offering the highest quality supplements with the best customer support and we believe it. Our close analysis found nothing but amazing things about this company.
If you are looking for a legitimate source for all your supplement needs, Whole Body Research is the one.
For Garcina Cambogia, this is the company we recommend you buy from above all others.
The only downside of Whole Body Research is they frequently sell out. Their name is becoming more popular and when they start selling a hot product, it sells out quickly. If they are in supply, it’s recommended you order as quickly as possible.
# 2 Second Choice: Genesis Today
Genesis Today Garcinia Cambogia
Another Garcinia Cambogia supplement we liked was Genesis Today’s Garcinia Cambogia. They don’t use fillers, synthetics, or binders, which is important.
But they don’t have the complete package. Rather than just HCA and potassium, they use a few other ingredients that water down their supplement.
They also only offer 800mg of the supplement, meaning their 30-day supply is really more like a 15-day supply if you actually want to get the recommended dosage.
#3 Third Choice: Vitamin Shoppe
Vitamin Shoppe Garcinia Cambogia
Sometimes Vitamin Shoppe meets our quality standards and sometimes it doesn’t. Sadly, the latter was the case for their Garcinia Cambogia product.
While the price is right on this product at around $10, there’s a reason for it. Their Garcinia Cambogia blend is loaded with fillers and comes in a dosage much less than what is needed.
As a result we couldn’t endorse this product of theirs. And that’s too bad, because we do like some of the other products they make. There just wasn’t enough HCA or potassium, and far too many binders and fillers for us to fully endorse this product.
P.S. While Whole Body Garcinia Cambogia is the best garcinia cambogia we’ve found, we would still love to hear about any others you’ve tried. If you have had a great experience of your own, please send me an email at email@example.com with details and I’ll check it out!
