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 new company that is not 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.

The ResearchVerified.com URL was just registered in May 2013, so online customer reviews were relatively thin as of the time of this writing. However, according to a couple reviews, 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.

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 has been shown to aid in the loss of visceral fat.
  • Raspberry Ketone – Produced from real raspberries, this extract increases your body’s production of adiponectin, which has been shown to have weight loss benefits.
  • Green Coffee – Contains 50% Chlorogenic Acid, which has been shown to help study participants lose “n 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 are claimed 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).

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 – What's the Final Take on Research Verified?

If you’re looking to purchase nutritional supplements that can help you lose weight, we might suggest looking elsewhere. Here’s why:

First, Research Verified is very new company (URL registered in May 2013), and what few online customer reviews we found 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 casts a large amount of doubt on the company’s claim that registered nurses are on hand to answer any of your questions.

Next, While the Research Verified website does a good job of linking to clinical studies that appear to show the efficacy 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.

Finally, the company 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.

For a company that claims to be transparent and to offer the highest quality supplements, there certainly seems to be a lot about Research Verified that is shrouded in mystery.
