About Garcinia Fuel

Garcinia Fuel is a dietary supplement that promises a number of benefits for those seeking to look and feel their best. The product claims to be able to block fat production and suppress your appetite, allowing you to lose weight naturally and flatten your belly as a result.

According to the makers of Garcinia Fuel, all you need to do is take 1 capsule of the product 2-3 times daily to start “torching” your fat and transforming your body into a more ideal version of itself.

These are pretty lofty claims, and some that shouldn’t be taken lightly. The National Institute of Health illustrates that more than two thirds of all American adults are considered overweight or obese. That’s a startlingly high percentage for a condition that brings with it a number of different health hazards and complications such as high blood pressure, an increased risk of heart disease, and much more.

So, clearly, Garcinia Fuel could potentially be hugely beneficial to those looking to lose weight and get healthier, provided that it actually was able to deliver on its various promises. In order to determine just how effective it might be at doing so, however, we’ll first need to take an introductory look at how the body burns fat and loses weight from a scientific vantage point.

The Science Behind Weight Loss

To understand how the human body actually loses weight, you need to understand the concept of calories. Sure, you’ve heard the term your entire life, but what are calories, really? In short, calories are essentially a measurement of potential energy. A banana might have 100 calories, for instance, and you might use all of those calories up on your daily 1 mile walk.

Making sense so far? According to howstuffworks.com, when we burn calories, our body converts the molecules in our fat in a usable form of energy that we expend as we carry out our daily lives. Working out intensifies this process, allowing us to burn more and forcing our bodies to convert fat to energy when exercising.

Basically, the more rigorous the activity is, the more energy required, and thus the more calories burned. Part of losing weight, of course, is keeping an eye on how many calories you consume in the first place.

Excess calories from overeating are stored in the body for later consumption in the form of fat cells. The bottom line is, to lose weight you’ll need to burn more calories through your activities than you consume during the course of your day.

Now that we have a basic understanding of how our bodies gain and lose weight, let’s refocus by taking a closer look at the main ingredient in Garcinia Fuel.

Garcinia Cambogia: Wonder Fruit Or Fruitless Dud?

On the main website for Garcinia Fuel, it is listed that the “secret ingredient” behind the supplement is none other than Garcinia Cambogia, a tropical fruit that first made waves in a 2012 informal study carried out by Dr. Oz.

When we reached out to the manufacturer for clarity, we were told that this was indeed the only active ingredient found inside Garcinia Fuel. Here at HighYa, we’re no stranger to this ingredient, as we’ve covered dozens of products containing it in the past few years.

We’ve even written an in-depth guide to the supplemental ingredient in an attempt to separate all of the hype surrounding it from the clinical evidence for its effectiveness (or lack thereof). You can read our guide right here.

In summation, although Garcinia Cambogia has enjoyed widespread popularity for years now, there is little clinical data to support that it actually works.

You read that right; despite its well-known status, Garcinia Cambogia has not been conclusively shown to help people lose weight, according to medical authority sources across the Internet such as Examine.com, WebMD, and Livestrong.com.

So maybe it’s not the miracle pill we’ve all been told about, but is it potentially harmful? Probably not in most cases, but all the same, in the next section let’s take a look at some possible side effects of taking this supplement.

Possible Garcinia Fuel Side Effects

WebMD states that although Garcinia Cambogia seems to be relatively safe on the whole for short-term human consumption, some possible side effects to be on the lookout for when taking the supplement include dizziness, dry mouth, headache, upset stomach and diarrhea (specific circumstances weren’t clarified).

Long-term safety (greater than 12 weeks) when taking the supplement is unknown, and should probably be avoided until further studies are done. Additionally, if you are pregnant or nursing, it’s best to stay on the safe side and avoid using the substance.

As always, we’d recommend speaking with your doctor before taking any supplement that you don’t fully understand or recognize.

Garcinia Fuel Pricing & Returns

Currently, it looks as though Garcinia Fuel is available exclusively via the product's main website. The company is offering it as part of a “free trial” pricing structure, which we’ve seen many times before here at HighYa during our extensive experience researching and covering products in many industries.

Essentially, though the trial itself is free, you’ll be asked to pay $4.95 for shipping and handling on a full supply of the supplement. The terms and conditions listed in the bottom of the checkout page, however, reveal more details about this trial.

Specifically, if you do not cancel this trial within 14 days of placing your order, you’ll be charged the full product price, which is $79.95. You’ll also be entered into the company’s autoship program. This means that you’ll be charged $79.95 each month in exchange for a new 30 day supply of the product.

In order to cancel this before it begins, you’ll need to reach out to customer service at (866) 877-8323 or via email at support@trygarciniafuel.com.

As for the return policy, the company provides a 30-day satisfaction guarantee on all of their orders. To process a refund, you’ll need to contact customer service using the information above in order to request a Return Merchandise Authorization number. From there, you can ship the product back for a full refund, less shipping and handling. You’ll also be responsible for shipping costs to get the product back to the company.

Final Thoughts On Garcinia Fuel

Taking a look at everything we’ve learned about Garcinia Fuel, we simply don’t feel confident enough about the product to warrant a recommendation that you purchase it.

For one thing, we’ve determined that the scientific data shows us that Garcinia Cambogia, the active ingredient inside Garcinia Fuel, has never been conclusively proven to help with weight loss, according to various clinical studies collected from authority sources all over academia.

The manufacturer states that 1000mg was the “recommended” dose for Garcinia Cambogia, and that many products only utilize half of this amount in their formulations. In fact, however, there doesn’t seem to be an agreed-upon effective dosage for taking the supplement at all.

Clinical trials with the Garcinia ranged from 1,500 to 4,667 mg/day, according to drugs.com, but the amount taken did not seem to have an impact on the supplement’s effectiveness.

Not to mention, if you really wanted to give the fruit a shot, there are far less expensive ways to do so. Garcinia Cambogia can be found readily available in many local stores, as well as places like Amazon online for a mere fraction of what even one bottle of Garcinia Fuel will run you.

Most of the standalone supplements we found online looked to hover around the $15 price point; a far cry from the nearly $80 that Garcinia Fuel costs.

Couple this information with the autoship program and its repeated monthly charges, and we feel plainly that you will end up paying far too much for a product that arguably won’t provide enough value to justify the expense over the long term, based on the less expensive alternatives and inconclusive science mentioned throughout this overview.

In the end, if you’re really serious about losing weight, our tried and true advice is to start by consulting with your physician. These trained professionals are there to help you achieve your health and fitness goals, and can point you in the direction you need to best fit your lifestyle, budgetary and medical needs.

    Never lick on the internet ad!

    • Bronx, NY,

    As soon as I ordered what I thought was a $4.95 bottle of this product, they attempted to place additional charges on my card. My bank prevented this but failed to prevent an additional charge of $79.95 to my account.

    When I called, I was told that the $4.95 price was only a trial and I was supposed to have called them two weeks of placing the order to cancel or I would be charged. I tell you, the website did not make this clear, and if it was printed anywhere it was in minuscule print or only flashed on the screen for a second.

    Today I spoke to three different people in an attempt to resolve this. The first person claimed that the best he could do was issue a 25% refund. The second claimed the best he could do was issue a 50% refund. The third claimed the best he could do was issue a 75% refund. Well, live and learn, and never click on an internet ad again!

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

    Don't fall prey to this scam

    • Truth or Consequences, NM,

    I received the trial shipment without even ordering it. I had no idea where it came from or that it was a trial shipment and I needed to cancel my account. The bottle had a warning for diabetics not to use, so I just threw the bottles away.

    When I was billed $84.90 for my first shipment, I called the company. They refused to refund my money, but they did cancel my membership so I wouldn't be billed again. They even offered to send another shipment free of charge. Why would I want more junk to throw away?

    This company is not reputable, their product is a scam, and their customer service is horrible. They hung up on me three times before I could even find out the name of the company. PLEASE, don't get scammed by them!

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

    I started taking this, and after two weeks I started peeing blood. I read some information on this after, which was my mistake it can cause a lot of issues, including death. Please don't make the same mistake that I did, do your research and avoid this product. It's not worth the risk.

    Frauds

    • Elmira, NY,
    • Jul 27, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I tried to cancel within the 14 days, and the company told me I was already out of the 14-day window (the first order was placed on the 11th for the "free" shipment and then my bank account was charged $79.95 and $69.95 on the 21st, which was 11 days later!). I spoke with three different people and they all told me there was nothing they could do and were extremely rude and dismissive on the phone. Now I have two bottles of pills that don't even work at the price of $150. This company needs to be exposed for the frauds that they are.

    Scam

    • Sophia, West Virginia,
    • Jul 27, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I am so mad at myself for falling for this scam. I called today to cancel my subscription to be told I have to pay a $23 restocking fee. I knew I was scammed as soon as I received the product because there was no contact info. I had to go to my bank and get the phone number of the company from my credit card account statement.

      What do we do about this? The same thing is happening to me! I have my credit card company disputing the charges, but they keep sending me the product and charging this account!

    Terrible service

    I bought two bottles, one was Garcinia Fuel, and the other was Forskolin Fuel. I drive a truck and was on the road when my order arrived, and by the time I got home it was 11 pm, so I waited until the next day, not realizing it would make that 15 days since I placed my order.

    The next morning I woke up and checked my balance and saw two charges, $69.99 and $79.99. When I called, they told me it had been 15 days, and the best they could do would be to offer me 75% off future orders. This is a rip-off. I do plan to start taking Garcinia Fuel tomorrow and will post another review after four weeks.

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

    Terrible product

    When first taking the product I tried it first thing in the morning with no food and felt really shaky. The next day I took it with food and felt a little bit better, but it took me a while to get used to the drug-like energy I was feeling. I continued to take the product for two and a half weeks and LOST NO WEIGHT.

    I called and canceled, but the next month I was charged and received another order. When I called to get my money back and send the product back, the representative said I should have called sooner and there was nothing she could do. I am extremely dissatisfied and will never recommend this product or anything similar to friends or enemies.

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