Research Verified Garcinia Cambogia claims to use 60% hydroxycitric acid (HCA) to help you lose visceral fat, without any changes in diet or exercise. As part of their promise to provide “the highest quality ingredients based on scientific research,” their Garcinia Cambogia supplement contains only the “proper dosage and purity,” and to be manufactured in an FDA registered and cGMP certified laboratory.
As we mentioned in our Research Verified review, the ResearchVerified.com URL was just registered in May 2013, so there aren’t a whole lot of online customer reviews, and additional information about the company is essentially non-existent. However, the reviews we were able to find were primarily negative, with the most common complaint citing difficulty reaching a live customer service representative. To test this, we contacted the company directly, and after spending a few minutes on hold, were instructed to leave a message and that “someone from the company would get back to us shortly.”
How Research Verified Garcinia Cambogia Works
According to the Research Verified website, most Garcinia Cambogia supplements “simply do not work” because they’re not formulated based on clinical research, and they don’t even contain the ingredients listed on the label. On the other hand, Research Verified Garcinia Cambogia really can help you burn fat by:
- Containing 60% HCA (Hydroxycitric Acid)
- Containing no fillers, binders, or any other extra ingredients.
- Having a daily serving size of 1600mg.
- Contain no calcium, which has actually been shown to reduce the effectiveness of HCA (Note: This is something also mentioned in our Garcinia Cambogia Buyer’s Guide).
- Being clinically proven.
Regardless of whether you’ll be purchasing the Research Verified Garcinia Cambogia or another one of their supplements, all products are claimed to be manufactured in a US-based, FDA registered, and cGMP certified facility, to “comply with the US Pharmacopeia's quality standards for quality & purity,” to be manufactured without harmful fillers, and to be third party tested.
Simply take two vegetarian capsules per day, preferably with food.

Bottom Line: Is Research Verified Garcinia Cambogia a Scam?
With all this information in mind, what’s the bottom line: is Research Verified Garcinia Cambogia a scam? Maybe not, but if you’re thinking about purchasing from the company, keep the following in mind:
While we were unable to locate any customer reviews about their Garcinia Cambogia supplement specifically, reviews about the Research Verified as a company are overwhelmingly negative—most of which appear to be related to difficulty reaching a live Research Verified representative. On top of this, they are not listed with the Better Business Bureau, though they do claim to hold an A+ rating from QualityTrusted.org. However, because both Research Verified and Quality Trusted use the same WHOIS privacy service to mask registrant information, and because there is a strong resemblance between the language used on both sites, we have a suspicion that they may actually be the same company.
In addition, for a company that claims not to “hide behind our website,” the whole Research Verified website is basically just a series of sales pages for the company (most of which have the same information), instead of actually informing you about the supplements they sell. Also, even though the company claims to provide “no misleading facts,” the apparent link between Research Verified and Quality Trusted (their third party testing company) seems to cast doubt on this statement.
With this in mind, we may recommend purchasing Garcinia Cambogia from a more reputable supplements company that has been in business for a longer period of time.
