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.

  • Omega 3

    My doctor suggested fish oil. I did research on the Internet and found that not all fish oils are equal. Research Verified fit the bill of 1500 mg Omega 3's, 800 mg EPA, 600 mg DHA with no additional ingredients. Research Verified Omega 3 also has no fishy taste. That's a definite plus. I was also very pleased with how quickly my order of Omega 3 shipped.

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

  • Omega 3

    I have used other Omega products before with good results, but with purity in question. Now with Reseach Verified, I know what I'm getting, and that is the best. Thanks for a great product.

  • Already feeling great!

    Even though I have only been taking the Research Verified CLA for less than two weeks, I already have noticed a significant rise in my energy levels. I feel more focused, have a better mood, and am basically feeling more healthy.

    I was watching a news program a few days ago discussing New Years Resolutions and getting healthy. The reporter mentioned adding CLA to your diet. I'll admit, I didn't know anything about CLA, but I'm glad to know that nutritionists recommend it, and I'm even more glad about my decision to purchase the Research Verified brand. I feel very confident that I am on my way to better health and weight management.

  • So far so good.

    So far so good. The lemon taste versus a fishy taste makes these easy to take, with no aftertaste or fish burp. I'm hoping to see total effects in three months, but, they seem to be helping.

    Great company

    I'm impressed with this company because of their research into products that could be dismissed as snake oil. In a world of offerings motivated solely by profit, these products, though not cheap, actually seem to perform as presented.

    Poor Product

    • New York,
    • Nov 10, 2016

    The product failed the frozen capsule quality test. Put capsule in the freezer overnight. If a capsule is frozen, it means it has impurities in it. Good Omega 3's will not be frozen. Also, very over priced.

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

    Prosta Relief

    • California,
    • Apr 29, 2016

    Purchased 3 pack of Prosta Relief for $105 on 4/13/2016. Email from Research Verified sent to me on 4/18/2013 saying sorry for the delay, product was back ordered, but good news it is here and has shipped today. Called on 4/22/16 to verify. They said "sorry for the delay, your order has shipped today." Called today, 4/25/16, and again "sorry for delay your order has shipped today." Asked to speak to supervisor, they said they do not have that capability to connect me, but they could contact supervisor and he will call me back within one hour.

    As we speak phone rang with this number: 000-0000-2214 (there is no such thing as a "000" area code that I am aware of). Name of caller was "supervisor". Person said I could not cancel order because product went out, but if I do not want the order I can refuse shipment from post office and it will be canceled. I will contact my bank and Attorney General's office if this is not remedied. Saga continues.

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