About Research Verified

Research Verified is a nutritional supplements manufacturer that claims to provide “the best products based on verified research.” The company claims to accomplish this by “looking at the actual science behind what makes a product work,” by providing the proper potency and dosage, and by using only the highest quality ingredients.

Research Verified is a relatively new company that isn’t listed with the Better Business Bureau, though they do claim to hold an A+ rating from QualityTrusted.org. However, the Quality Trusted website does not allow users to search their members list, so we were unable to confirm this claim. With this in mind though, because both Research Verified and Quality Trusted use WHOIS Privacy Protect to mask registrant information, and because both websites use very similar language in some areas, we have our suspicions that they may actually be the same company.

From a customer satisfaction standpoint, there aren’t many online reviews for Research Verified’s products outside of Amazon.com, where they average 4.5 stars. Common compliments reference quality products that work as advertised. On the other hand, the most common complaint appears to reference failure to provide any benefits (we’ll talk more about this in a moment).

Related to customer reviews for Research Verified elsewhere online, according to a couple reviews here, a live representative of the company is very difficult to reach. Instead, customers often receive an answering machine with no callbacks, even after several attempts. We also found several complaints that cited difficulty ordering through the company’s website, difficulty completing a return/refund, and even allegations that call into question the company’s legitimacy. Note: A representative of Research Verified reached out to let us know that they now have a fully staffed customer service department, so contacting the company should no longer be a problem.

Research Verified Products

According to the Research Verified website, most supplements don’t contain the proper dosage or potency needed to achieve effective results, and most are not backed up by clinical research. To combat this, similar to Whole Body Research, BioTrust, and Genesis Today, Research Verified is a nutritional supplements manufacturer that claims to use only clinically-tested ingredients in their products, most of which are targeted at weight loss. In addition, the company claims to have been “created to help you find the best possible product on the market, based on extensive research.”

Research Verified claims to offer “the highest quality products at reasonable prices,” which include:

  • Garcinia Cambogia – Contains 800mg of Hydrocitric Acid (HCA) per capsule (1600mg daily dose), which is claimed to aid in the loss of visceral fat.
  • Raspberry Ketone – Produced from real raspberries, this extract is claimed to increase your body’s production of adiponectin, which may provide weight loss benefits.
  • Green Coffee – Contains 50% Chlorogenic Acid, which has been shown to help study participants lose “an average of 17 pounds each and 16% body fat.”
  • 7-Day Colon Cleanse
  • White Kidney Bean Carb Blocker

The 7-Day Colon Cleanse and White Kidney Bean Carb Blocker products only became visible when we attempted to check out (see pricing section for additional details), and no information about them was provided.

All Research Verified products promise to:

  • Include the “highest quality ingredients in the proper dosage & purity based on scientific research.”
  • Be manufactured in an FDA registered, cGMP certified laboratory.
  • Undergo third party testing.
  • Comply “with the US Pharmacopeia's quality standards for quality & purity.”

If you have any questions about Research Verified products, the company claims to have registered nurses on staff to answer them (see the Bottom Line section for an analysis of this statement).

Research Verified Pricing & Refund Policy

Research Verified supplements are only available directly through the company, and are priced as follows:

Garcinia Cambogia:

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

Raspberry Ketone:

  • $48 for a single bottle
  • $98 for 3 bottles ($33 each)
  • $142 for 6 bottles ($24 each)

Green Coffee:

  • $48 for a single bottle
  • $98 for 3 bottles ($33 each)
  • $142 for 6 bottles ($24 each)

When checking out, you’ll also have the opportunity to add 7-Day Colon Cleanse for $12, and/or White Kidney Bean Carb Blocker for $15. Unfortunately, Research Verified does not provide additional information regarding either of these products.

All Research Verified products—whether they’re empty, open, or unused—come with a one-year, 100% money back guarantee, less shipping and handling charges. The company claims to offer this for three reasons:

  1. They want you to be comfortable with your purchase.
  2. They’re confident that their quality is the best.
  3. They know that not every supplement will work for every individual.

In order to begin the refund process, 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.

Unlike most other nutritional supplements manufacturers, Research Verified does not sign you up for any sort of autoship program. This means that you won’t receive any additional products until you physically place another order.

Pros:

  • Claims to offer nutritional supplements focused on weight loss that are backed by science, and that use only the highest quality ingredients.
  • One-year money back guarantee.
  • No autoship program.

Cons:

  • Very few online customer reviews, and almost no additional information about the company is available. However, what few online reviews are currently available appear to be negative.
  • Despite the company’s claim to be open and honest with customers, there is a lot of information lacking (see next section for additional details).

Bottom Line: If you’re looking to purchase Research Verified nutritional supplements that can help you lose weight, keep the following in mind:

Excessively Positive Reviews

First, it’s important to note that although Research Verified’s supplements—including their Raspberry Ketone and Garcinia Cambogia formulations—appear to have highly positive reviews on Amazon.com, this is in sharp contrast to what HighYa readers are saying about raspberry ketone and garcinia cambogia supplements from other manufacturers. And while this could certainly be due to the fact that Research Verified produces better supplements than other companies, we have our doubts. Why?

Because, as we’ve discussed time and time again, there is essentially zero clinical evidence showing that raspberry ketone and garcinia cambogia supplements can help you lose weight. On top of this, based on HighYa reader feedback for raspberry ketone and garcinia cambogia supplements, nearly all come with very low reviews, which makes Research Verified’s almost wholly positive reviews stick out a bit like a sore thumb.

Vague Information

Speaking of efficacy, while the Research Verified website does a good job of linking to clinical studies that appear to show the effectiveness of the ingredients found in their supplements, their product descriptions are often very vague, and include much of the same information found elsewhere on the site. On top of this, Research Verified will offer you two supplementary products when checking out (7-Day Colon Cleanse and White Kidney Bean Carb Blocker), though no additional information about these products is made available.

Research Verified’s Online Reputation

Next, outside of Amazon.com, the online customer reviews we found for Research Verified appeared to be overwhelmingly negative. The majority of these complaints appear to reference difficulty getting in touch with a company representative for questions, concerns, order status, and even processing returns. Most are forced to leave messages, and often don’t receive callbacks, even after several attempts. This might cast a large amount of doubt on the company’s claim that registered nurses are on hand to answer any of your questions.

Granted, we’ve since been contacted by a representative from the company who told us that their support center is fully staffed and ready to take your call, so this issue may have been addressed.

What’s the Link with QualityTrusted.org?

Finally, Research Verified is not rated with the Better Business Bureau, but claims to hold an A+ rating from QualityTrusted.org. However, by all appearances, Research Verified and Quality Trusted seem to be the same company.

  • Didn't work for me

    • by S Adams,
    • CA,
    • Apr 22, 2015

    I gave it a 1 star rating only because I had to, otherwise I would have posted 0 stars. I purchased the 3 month supply of green coffee bean extract, the white kidney bean carb blocker & 7 day detox colon cleanser. I followed the directions to a "T" for about a week and instead of losing any weight I've actually gained 3 pounds. :( I've stopped taking it & will be returning the products. Hopefully their return policy is truly "hassle free". I'll post an update on how the return process goes.

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

    Similar Experience

    • by Nicole ,
    • Frederick, CO,
    • Mar 9, 2015

    My husband didn't see any results with the combo of the Green Tea and the Garcinia Cambodia. We have been trying to contact the company via phone and email for almost eight months. The last attempt on a phone via the number listed on their site was to an electronics store. I finally looked up the number via an old bank statement and bingo. I got a person who helped me with how to return it for a full refund less the $1.99 shipping we paid on the six bottles. The contact number is 888-334-5055 if anyone needs it. I have no idea how this will go, but I thoroughly plan on tracking the package and have been advised they will send me a check within 2 weeks of receiving the returned product. Wish me luck. If this does not go right, I will be filing a claim with my bank.

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

    Great customer service from Research Verified

    • by Alison Webb,
    • Sandhurst UK,
    • Jun 30, 2014

    I ordered 3x bottles of Garnicia Gambogia from Research Verified and paid £73 for them. They were delivered promptly and I took them for 1 month. Unfortunately they didn't work for me so contacted Research Verified via email and requested a full refund as per their policy. I was given instructions, including an RMA returns number, which I followed and I received a full refund of £73 as promised. I have no complaints about this company in fact I was very impressed by their customer service.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    My order 6/3/2014

    • by Elizabeth Haywood,
    • Nottingham England,
    • Jun 19, 2014

    I ordered some raspberry ketone on the 3rd of June this year and it is now the 19th and I still have not received it! The money has been debited from my account and it quoted 3-5 working days for delivery so I am very unhappy. Its looking like I've been ripped off, has anyone else had the same experience?

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

      I see that the address posted on your profile is England. International packages take more than 3-5 days to arrive in England from the US. I think there could have been a mistake. You might have been quoted the local delivery time frame, sorry

    SCAM! Do not buy!

    • by Mariah,
    • Australia,
    • May 22, 2014

    Brought one bottle for $48 and was charged almost $100 to my credit card. Have called the hotline repeatedly, been hung up on, sent numerous emails and never received a reply. It has been almost a month and I have not received my product or had any thing dealt with after what would be nearing 10 complaint calls/emails to their company.

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

    Took my money and had to fight to get it back

    • by Alice Young,
    • Hollywood, CA,
    • Apr 15, 2014

    I was gullible and ordered the 6 pack for $198... oh boy that was a mistake. I tried calling and leaving messages, but it was extremely hard to get a hold of them. When I did get through, the customer service reps were rude and really didn't care that I spent my hard earned money on their garbage. After weeks of trying to get them to return my money, I finally just called my credit card company and filed a claim. Don't make my mistake and trust these bastards.

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

      Michelle

      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& 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 w/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 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 waist of your money, time & patience! LIARS!

      I am sick rite now. I thought I did my research. Everything looked legit. I brought one bottle. I called them and placed my order using gift cards. I know I will never get my money back. I am so very upset. I just ordered yesterday. Then I came across this site last night. I did not sleep. I am going to call today and cancel and try to get my money back, but I can feel it would be a waste of my time and will leave very angry and frustrated. It's not like I used a credit card and can cancel the order through my card. I am so very upset. I can't afford to throw money away! Lesson learned.

    Cancellation/refund policy is a scam

    • by Deb,
    • Missouri,
    • Mar 30, 2014

    I ordered a bottle of Garcinea Gambogia on a Saturday. called on a Monday to cancel. They would not give me a cancelation confirmation and told me they would call me when my refund posted. I gave them to the end of the week and then had to let the bank handle it. They never sent me the product nor gave me a refund until they were forced to do so by the bank.

    Sent complaint to BBB about fraudulent relationship between ResearchVerified and Consumereview.org

    • by Kyle Harris,
    • NY,
    • Mar 17, 2014

    Research Verified and Consumereview.org are in a partnership to exclusively market and sell Research Verified products. Consumereview.org named Research Verified Raspberry Ketones, Garcinia Gambogia, and Coffee Bean Extract as their #1 picks over ALL other competitors, fooling a trusting public in an elaborate fraud. Consumereview.org ALSO sells these 3 products. They share the same phone lines but using different numbers. They share the same customer service reps. They share the same ADDRESS. I did a lot of research, and made numerous phone calls and have verified everything I have stated......and with some coercion of the customer service reps. I ordered 2 of the Research Verified above named products. One from Consumereview.org, and one from Research Verified. I came across your site and began to ask questions myself. When I realized the fraud going on, I tried to cancel both of my orders, unfortunately the service was not able or was unwilling to cancel BOTH orders....I say BOTH orders, because I only needed to call ONE number to try and cancel the TWO orders! Shame on them! I hope the BBB rips them each a new one!

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