About Garcinia Lean XTreme

Garcinia Lean XTreme is claimed to be a 100% pure, all-natural garcinia cambogia supplement that can help you lose weight by simply and effectively releasing fat from your body, preventing the formation of new fat, and curbing your appetite, therefore decreasing your calorie intake. Because of this, Garcinia Lean XTreme claims to be “mother nature's answer for healthy, effective weight loss.”

In order to make this happen, Garcinia Lean XTreme claims that the hydroxycitric acid (HCA) contained in the extract stops citrate lyase, an enzyme, from converting glucose into fat (e.g. stops fat from forming), and that it also makes fat more bioavailable for your body to use as energy (e.g. boosts your metabolism and helps you burn more calories). In the instance of Garcinia Lean XTreme, HCA is also claimed to work as an appetite suppressant so that you consume less calories.

On top of this, Garcinia Lean XTreme is claimed to also include green coffee bean extract, which allows the supplement to “work in two ways to give you results twice as fast!”

Garcinia Lean XTreme claims to be produced in state-of-the-art labs, without chemical additives, fillers, or binders, and to cause no known side effects.

Garcinia Lean XTreme Pricing & What you Should Know

Garcinia Lean XTreme is only available through a 14-day trial, which will cost you $4.95 (or $9.95 for Expedited shipping) to cover S&H charges.

However, on the 15th day, you’ll be billed $79.31 for the full price of the product and will also be enrolled in the supplement’s autoship program. Ultimately, this means you’ll continue receiving a new bottle of Garcinia Lean XTreme every 30 days, and your credit card will be charged $79.31 each time.

Outside of the 14-day trial, Garcinia Lean XTreme comes with a 30-day refund policy, less S&H charges, although this only applies to unused and unopened product (we’ll talk more about this in the final section).

To cancel your autoship enrollment or to request a refund, you’ll need to contact customer service at 877-591-6118.

Should You Buy Garcinia Lean XTreme?

If you’re thinking about handing over some moolah for Garcinia Lean XTreme, consider the following first:

Clinical Evidence for the Efficacy of Garcinia Cambogia

As we wrote in our recent Updated Garcinia Cambogia Buyer’s Guide, “there is almost no evidence demonstrating that Garcinia Cambogia is any more effective than healthy diet and regular exercise.” It really is that plain and simple. However, Garcinia Lean XTreme is somewhat unique in that they also include green coffee bean extract, which also has “little scientific evidence [it] is effective to begin with, and even less evidence outlining dosage and possible side effects.”

In essence, Garcinia Lean XTreme’s manufacturer makes a lot of really begin claims with only shreds of evidence to support them.

The Company Behind Garcinia Lean XTreme

Speaking of manufacturers—we honestly have to wonder if all of these garcinia cambogia supplements are manufactured by the same company, because their websites are nearly identical, and their marketing angles simply repeat the same information over and over again.

Making the Sale

With this said, one explanation for the similarities between all these garcinia cambogia websites is that most marketing companies understand how to use psychology (rather than tangible information) to sell products, which is something we outlined in great deal in our How Weight Loss Ads Convince You to Buy article.

And we can see this play out in textbook fashion on the Garcinia Lean XTreme website:

First, we see a picture of a fit, attractive woman, which makes us envious and want to look the same way. Then, the manufacturer attempts to create tension and a sense of urgency by writing at the top of the page: “WARNING: Due to popular TV demand our stores are struggling to keep supply in stock. As of November 19, 2014 we do have a limited supply IN STOCK and ready to ship within 24 hours.” Thankfully, the manufacturer provides relief from this urgency by letting us know how we can have a trial order rushed to us.

What Do Other Consumers Have to Say About Garcinia Lean XTreme?

Although the Garcinia Lean XTreme website has been around for a while, the supplement appears to have only have recently been marketed (usually through affiliate websites) recently. Because of this, no online customer reviews were available at the time of our research.

However, we’ve gathered numerous customer reviews from garcinia cambogia supplements users here at HighYa, most of which appear to be negative (less than 2 stars), with nearly all complaints referencing failure to work, difficulty reaching customer service, and/or difficulty obtaining refunds or cancelling trials.

Beware the Free Trial

Have you ever heard the saying, “There’s no such thing as a free lunch?” It basically means that it’s impossible to get something for nothing, which couldn’t ring more true when referencing garcinia cambogia supplements.

This is because, as we’ve talked about many times in the past, free trials and their subsequent autoship programs are less about letting you try a product or providing any kind of convenience, and are more about grabbing as much of your cash as possible.

In fact, despite our hundreds of hours of research related to garcinia cambogia supplements, we have yet to read of a single instance where someone ordered the product and successfully cancelled their trial before being charged the full amount.

Satisfaction Guaranteed?

Finally, Garcinia Lean XTreme’s manufacturer claims to have a “satisfaction guarantee,” but only if you never open or use the product to begin with. And how in the world would you know if you’re satisfied with a product without opening or using it? It just doesn’t make sense, unless the company is attempting to prevent returns.

Bottom Line

Considering the almost complete lack of evidence showing garcinia cambogia (and in this instance, green coffee bean extract as well) actually works, the mandatory trial and autoship enrollment, the extremely high price, and the restrictive refund policy, we might recommend avoiding Garcinia Lean XTreme altogether.

In fact, we’d recommend avoid all garcinia cambogia supplements, but if you’re dead-set on buying one, try visiting your local pharmacy first. There, you’ll almost certainly find several to choose from, and should experience an easy return process if you’re not satisfied.

    Scam

    • Florida,
    • Aug 27, 2016

    DON'T ORDER garcinia and forskolin. Total rip off. First you order based on the special price they offer you, but they don't tell you in 14 days they will charge your credit card over 79.95 and another 69.00 for the other pills. And if you don't cancel in less then 14 days, on the 14th day they charge you. Not worth the money, total scam! Customer service is rude. And don't even ask for a supervisor because they're also rude. I only got 50% of my money back and the guy was sarcastic about it. So if you're going to order this product please don't. Total scam and not worth the money. The 14 day trial is not enough time to see if this products work. So it's in your best interest not to order this product.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Don't do it

    I ordered the free trial and paid the $11 and some for S&H. I took it faithfully as instructed on the bottle and saw no weight loss or energy. I thought I was signing up for just a trial, but low and behold $87 comes out of my account. I called the company and was hung up on twice before finally speaking with a lady named Candace that spoke very bad English.

    I told her I wanted a refund and my account canceled. She kept telling me she would send a free bottle and a voucher of some sort and would put my account on hold for 30 days. She told me to double up on the dosage and call back if not satisfied. I advised her I wanted the account canceled and a refund. She said it was after 14 days so she could only give me a 35% refund. I told her fine, and again she said she would put my account on hold.

    I told her AGAIN that I wasn't calling back in 30 days and she was to cancel my account now. She offered me the voucher again and her same old spiel​. I asked to speak to a supervisor and was denied. I told her if she couldn't cancel the account, I was cancelling my card so they couldn't get anymore money from me. She told me she would give me the 35% refund, but now she couldn't send me a free bottle or a voucher and she would cancel my acctoun. We shall see if I get more money taken out. If so, I will be contacting a lawyer and BBB. Save yourself the hassle of a product that does NOT work other than making you poop extra. Don't waste your money.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Misrepresentg the free trial

    • California,
    • Jul 23, 2016

    I canceled online via a page I found through Google search for 877-839-9343 and was told I had to return the product in two days (by July 20th; as of this review, it is the 18th) to Colorado from California or pay almost $40 to keep the remaining pills, which are useless to me because they give me terrible insomnia. I was given a return number and told that, if the company did not receive my package in two days, I would have to pay almost $80! For a free 14-day trial! This is by no means free!. This is infuriating. I should not be spending anything other than the initial shipping charge, which I've already paid.

    Because I left my order in my cart, abandoning the order, I was contacted by a Garcinia rep who had a friend who lived in the same city in which I grew up in Southern Oregon. The rep was very friendly (we talked about his friend, etc.), but he did not notify me of these expenses at all. That is the truth. This company is misrepresenting their free trial Do not buy anything from this shady company.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Definitely A Scam

    • Pittsburgh, PA,
    • Jun 19, 2016

    I tried to order this product, but each time I got a message that said my transaction "wasn't allowed". This happened 3 times, with 3 different credit cards; all with more than enough credit available, and in good standing. After the 3 attempts, I used each card at 3 different places online, all with no problem. Garcinia Lean Xtreme (at least online) is a SCAM to get your credit card number, and personal info.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Horrible

    • Apr 2, 2016

    Slow shipping, don't even bother with it. Sure my appetite shrank but that's most likely the divorce I am going through. A week after I received my shipment, I had 2 charges, one for $80 and another for $85, I called and they said it's because of the 15-day trial. I ended up getting the charges reversed and kept the pills for a grand total of $40.00. That's not bad for two supplements with a 1-month supply even if it is just a placebo. Would have liked to ship my opened bottles back but I would have still been charged $40.00 for used product, so might as well keep it.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    WATCH OUT, this is a $84.71 scam.

    • Alabama,
    • Apr 1, 2016

    I purchased a trial bottle of Garcina Lean Xtreme for what I thought was $4.95 for 60 pills and before I knew it, I was charged $84.71. BEWARE people. You can buy the same product at Walmart for $7.00. Funny thing is it didn't even work. Do not fall for this trial offer. Garcina Lean Xtreme has to hide the actual rip off price of 84.71 they are charging, after using it for 15 days, in what we call the "fine print". They are ripping you off. Buy your product from an honest company.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Scam

    Please do not buy these products. Once you give them your credit card number they will continue to charge you as they see fit, even when you ask them not to. I just wanted to try the free trial. I will decide if I want to order more, you do not take it upon yourselves to continue to charge my card for something I did not authorize. When you cancel they charge you for that too.

    For garcinia lean extreme

    This product is a scam. It doesn't work and they start charging your account before the 14 day trial is up. They're charging 70 something dollars for one bottle and 80 something for another one. I tried numerous times to call and can't get a real person on the phone.
