About Garcinia Cambogia Boost
In an already crowded market of Garcinia Cambogia supplements, Garcinia Cambogia Boost is a new product that claims to use 60% HCA to help you lose weight, trim belly fat, improve your mood, and more. The company also claims that these benefits have been clinically proven, and that their supplement is safe to use for most individuals.
The company claims to have been in business for “for quite some time,” though they’re not listed with the Better Business Bureau, and we were unable to find any online reviews about either the product or the company. We did notice that the product’s URL was registered on October 29, 2013, so this may be one explanation for the lack of relevant information. However, unless the company operates under different names, this would seem to negate the assertion that they’ve been in business for a long time.
How Garcinia Cambogia Boost Works
Similar to Whole Body Garcinia Cambogia, Garcinia Cambogia Boost derives its primary ingredient (60% Hydrocitric Acid, or HCA) from the rind of the Garcinia Cambogia fruit, which is native to tropical areas of Asia, Australia, and elsewhere. According to the product’s website, HCA can help suppress your appetite, prevent fat from being made within your body, boost your immune system, increase serotonin production, and suppress the cortisol (stress) hormone.
The manufacturer claims that Garcinia Cambogia Boost is based on research conducted by Dr. Julie Chen (cited here, here, and here), which found that those taking Garcinia Cambogia extract lost “two to three times more weight than those not taking the supplement.” On top of this, the website also claims that participants accomplished this without “changing their dietary habits or exercise routines.” However, keep in mind the following:
- Study #2 (LDL and HDL cholesterol levels) was performed on rats, not on humans.
- Study #3 was only shown to be mildly effective for visceral (belly) fat; not for whole-body fat.
- For every study that shows the effectiveness of 60% HCA, there are several more that cast doubt on it. For a detailed explanation of this point, please see our Garcinia Cambogia Buyer’s Guide.
Based on information found on the product’s website, Garcinia Cambogia Boost is manufactured in the USA, and in an FDA-approved and GMP-certified facility. Ingredients are claimed to be 100% natural, without fillers or stimulants, and include the following:
- Calcium 50mg
- Chromium 200mg
- Potassium 50mg
- Garcinia Cambogia Extract (60% HCA) 1,000mg
It’s important to mention here that calcium has actually been shown to reduce the effectiveness of HCA in some circumstances.
With this in mind, the company claims that you can expect to lose an average of 8-10 pounds over 30-45 days while using Garcinia Cambogia Boost, which will be enhanced further by exercise. There are no claimed side effects, and you simply need to take two veggies capsules 1-2 times daily, about 30 minutes prior to eating.
As with any nutritional supplement, it’s always a good idea to speak with your physician prior to beginning.

Misleading. They charged me more than what was on the checkout page, and when I called them, they said that the price was in the policy part. I asked for a refund and they rejected.
I consider this as misleading and cheating. I am still asking for a refund and will not deal with them again. It is not recommended.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
