About Research Verified Garcinia Cambogia

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 original customer reviews we found for the company 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.”

However, since writing our original Research Verified review, a representative from the company reached out and let us know that their service department is now fully staffed and ready to take your call as needed. As such, these complaints may no longer be applicable.

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 is claimed to really 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.
  • Containing 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 the company’s supplements, all their 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.

In order to experience benefits, Research Verified recommends taking two vegetarian capsules per day, preferably with food.

Research Verified Garcinia Cambogia Pricing & Refund Policy

Research Verified Garcinia Cambogia is only available directly through the company, and is priced as follows:

  • $48 for a single bottle
  • $120 for 3 bottles ($40 each)
  • $198 for 6 bottles ($33 each)

All Research Verified products, including their Garcinia Cambogia supplement, come with a one-year, 100% money back guarantee, less shipping and handling charges. The company claims that you simply need to contact customer service at (800) 685-3330, at support@researchverified.com, or fill out a contact form to begin the process.

Will Research Verified Garcinia Cambogia Help You Lose Weight?

Chopping to the point: Compared to many other supplements manufacturers, Research Verified seems to be focused on creating quality products that contain what they claim, and to stand behind their products with a 1-year warranty. But while this is highly positive, does this necessarily mean that their Garcinia Cambogia supplement can help you lose weight?

As we’ve discussed in-depth on numerous occasions, including our most recent article titled The Updated Truth About Garcinia Cambogia, there is essentially zero clinical evidence showing that garcinia cambogia can reliably help you lose any kind of meaningful weight.

But what about the 2003 study featured on the Research Verified Garcinia Cambogia page? According to the results, “At 16 weeks, the G cambogia group had significantly reduced visceral, subcutaneous, and total fat areas compared with the placebo group. [However], there were no significant differences in BMI or body weight at week 12, but there were slight numeric decreases in body weight and BMI in men.” In layman’s terms, while some participants who took garcinia cambogia lost slightly more belly fat, none of them actually lost any weight.

Despite this discrepancy between claims and results, Research Verified Garcinia Cambogia holds a 4-star rating on Amazon.com, with the most common compliment citing positive results. On the other hand, the most common complaint appears to reference failure to work.

From a company perspective, Research Verified is 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.

With all of this in mind, while Research Verified seems to be proud of the products they manufacture, this doesn’t mean that their supplements—Garcinia Cambogia or otherwise—have a sufficient amount of clinical evidence showing that they work as claimed. In fact, as we noted above, even some of the clinical evidence referenced on their website is in direct opposition to some of their claims.

  • It's Not Working

    I have been on this product (Research Verified Garcinia Cambogia) for three weeks. I walk five miles, four times a week and do exercise at home. I have NOT lost any weight. I bought a two month supply and will continue to use the product to see if it just takes some time. Otherwise, I will be fighting for my money back.

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

    Didn't work

    I've been on this for 3 weeks and I have not lost a pound. I even bought the colon cleanse and carb blocker as well, still nothing. Very disappointed in this product.

    Beware! They Make It Look Legit With Their "Money Back Guarantee"

    • Amarillo, TX,
    • Jun 21, 2016

    Scam! I followed through with directions and even ate a light meal. Not one pound lighter. Their "answering operator" will never call you back and you will never get a hold of a live person, much less get your money back.

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

    Waste of money

    • Truro, Nova Scotia,

    Not a single pound.

    • Ontario, Canada,
    • Jul 2, 2015

    I ordered a three month supply. Like the other people who have written reviews, I have not lost a pound. Don't waste your money on this product. Weight Watches is a much better program.

      I'm on my 3 bottle and have not lost a single pound. It's hard to believe some people have lost weight. I just hope I get my money back when I return this product.

    Disappointed

    • Maryland,
    • Jul 2, 2015

    I chose Research Verified because the website looked to be trustworthy, so bought three bottles of your Garcinia Cambogia Extract. What a mistake, because I did not lose one pound. The sad part is, I ate healthy meals, had small portions of food, and exercised 3-4 times per week, but instead of losing, gained. How is that possible? When I was with Weight Watchers, I ate healthy meals, had small portions and exercised. I lost 1-2 pounds per week, but with their pills, I lost nothing. Do not waste your money.

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

    What a fiasco!

    As I only have one kidney and borderline diabetic, losing fat was a desirable thing to do. I did internet research and decided to try a 6 month supply to really give it a chance. I followed directions meticulously and ate healthy and exercised as physical status would allow. I lost no weight or noticeable fat as measured by tape measure for before and after. As I have no phone, I contacted the company by email and received no reply. I have again contacted the company to engage their 365 day money back guarantee but have serious doubts. I am out one hundred and ninety eight dollars with no noted results and will probably be shuffled off into that dark closet for the unwanted and unnoted comments.

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

    Didn't loose any weight

    • Salt Lake City, UT,
    • Jul 1, 2015

    I have sent two emails and left a message, have not heard back yet. Will try again tomorrow. I took Garcinia Cambogia for four months, not a pound lighter. I eat a high protein, low fat and carb diet. It still did nothing. Would not recommend.

    Waste my Hard earn Money.

    • Jul 1, 2015

    I bought the three months Garcinia Cambogia Extract from Research Verified. Haven't lost any weight what so ever. Was very surprised to hear the negative response from a so called trusted company. Will not order from them again.

    Going Public With This Scam!

    • San Diego, CA,
    • Jun 18, 2015

    Never lost an ounce! I am on a very careful diet which is non-dairy, highly alkaline, low-glycemic, lean protein, and rich in dark colored veggies and fruits. I exercise every day. I drink nothing but water and homemade witch's brews; formulated from Ayurvedic recipes. I tried this particular brand of Garcinia Cambogia because they lied about all the right things. This crap could be drain cleaner for all I know. I am going to contact my local news, radio and anyone else who will give this scam the exposure it deserves. Research verified you better hope you know how to hide well enough to hide from me. You have just screwed over the wrong girl.

      Dwayne

      I am with you on this. Didn't lose a pound and my friend actually put on about 8 pounds. Can't find a number to call to get my money back. Obviously a scam.

    They Are Liars

    • Jun 15, 2015

    I chose Research Verified because the website looked trustable & I didn't think to check or research the company. That was a BIG mistake. My order was 2 weeks late, the customer service was horrible. Every time I called for info on my order it was the same women who answered, very rude & I could barely understand her. A couple times she put me on hold to "ask her manager". Once she talked to her manager while on the phone with me. I could hear her manager telling her what to do. It seems like only 2 or 3 women run this company. Every time I try to make a comment on their Facebook page, it's deleted with-in an hour. Oh, and after receiving & using the 2 bottles of their Garcinia Cambogia while doing my Insanity workout I have not lost any weight but have stayed in shape. "RESEARCH VERIFIED" is a waste of your money, time & patience. LIARS.

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

      How long did you take it for? And did you take it as prescribed? Just curious since I am thinking about getting this brand. Also, did you return it to get a full refund?

    • Jun 9, 2014

      Mia

      I hope she returned it... I wonder if we can sue them for that...
