About Garcinia Melt
You want an easy way to lose weight, and the Garcinia Melt supplement claims to deliver. After all, this maximum strength weight loss formula promises to help burn fat quicker, control appetite, reduce emotional eating, boost serotonin levels and improve mood, and control belly fat—without diet or exercise!
What’s more, according to the company, all ingredients found in Garcinia Melt are 100% natural and pure, without fillers, binders, or chemical additives.
Look, we’ll cut right to the point here: In our opinion, you should avoid Garcinia Melt and products just like it. Why? That’s exactly what we’ll spend our time explaining in this review. To start, we’ll address Garcinia Melt’s price.
Is Garcinia Melt Expensive? How Does Its Price Compare?
There are four packages available for Garcinia Melt:
- 1 Bottle (60 capsules): $49, plus $7.95 S&H
- 3 Bottles: $119.85
- 5 Bottles: $174.75
- 7 Bottles: $199.15
Except for the single bottle, all Garcinia Melt packages include free shipping.
Garcinia Melt comes with a 30-day refund policy, less S&H charges, although this only applies to unopened bottles. If you open it, you own it. In order to request one, you can contact customer service at (888) 956-2783 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keep in mind, that you can purchase a garcinia cambogia supplement for fraction of the cost (as low as $10) from your local retailers like Rite Aid, Costco and Walmart to just name a few. However, compared to other garcinia cambogia supplements sold exclusively online, Garcinia Melt is priced relatively the same. Does this necessarily mean that these supplements are worth the money? That’s what we’ll explore next.
How Do Supplements Like Garcinia Melt Work? Are They Effective?
Garcinia cambogia is a small, pumpkin-shaped fruit that’s been used traditionally across different parts of Asia to treat a wide ranges of conditions for generations. More recently, the rind of this fruit has been closely studied due to the presence of a chemical called hydroxycitric acid (HCA), which some trials have shown to block citrate lyase from converting glucose into fat. Additionally, HCA has been shown in a trial or two to make fat more available for processing by your body, while boosting serotonin levels and elevating mood.
The problem with nearly all of these studies (including the two referenced on the Garcinia Melt website) is that they were performed en vitro (inside a Petri dish) or in animals like mice. As such, there is no clinically validated, peer reviewed evidence showing that garcinia cambogia—or the HCA it contains—can provide any benefits in humans.
As if this wasn’t enough, some ingredients like calcium have been shown to further reduce the effectiveness of HCA. Curiously, companies like Garcinia Melt continue to include it in their GC supplements, despite all the clinical evidence to the contrary.
What Are Customers Saying About Supplements Like Garcinia Melt?
Despite this almost complete lack of evidence (and not following what little evidence there is, as with calcium), garcinia cambogia supplements have flown off the shelves since being featured on the Dr. Oz daytime TV show several years ago. They even remain popular after so many thousands of customers have experienced less-than-stellar results. Like what?
Whether we’re talking about Garcinia Cambogia 360, GC180 XT, Garcinia Lean XTreme, or any other garcinia cambogia supplement—and whether we’re referencing reviews here on HighYa or elsewhere online—the fact of the matter is that they often come with bottom-of-the-barrel customer feedback.
Most complaints reference that these supplements are priced far too high and don’t work as advertised (or at all), while a close second is problems canceling trials and difficulty with automatic shipments. The good news is that Garcinia Melt doesn’t appear to enroll customers in recurring shipments.
Is Garcinia Melt Endorsed by Any Celebrities?
The Garcinia Melt website is fairly clear when outlining the fact that only garcinia cambogia (the ingredient) was featured on the Dr. Oz show, and not the supplement itself.
However, based on the image of Kim Kardashian in the upper left-hand corner, you might reasonably believe that she endorses Garcinia Melt. To the contrary, we didn’t find any third-party websites indicating that Ms. Kardashian has anything to do with the supplement or the company who manufactures it—or that she even knows her likeness is being used at all.
Given this further lack of evidence, in our opinion, we think this is a prime example of a fake celebrity endorsement.
Is Garcinia Melt a Scam?
Over that last several years, the HighYa team has written nearly three dozen reviews about garcinia cambogia supplements, as well as series of in-depth articles, including our buyer’s guide. In short, we’re well-versed when it comes to garcinia cambogia.
Time and time again, regardless of the company or their claims, the fact of the matter is that these products always come up short in two key areas:
- Customer satisfaction (i.e. they don’t deliver on their promises), and
- Bottom-of-the-barrel customer support, usually related to difficulty canceling trials, ending autoship programs, and/or obtaining refunds.
The good news is that, when it comes to Garcinia Melt, you won’t have to worry about scammy free trials or unwanted recurring shipments. Heck, we’re willing to admit that they might be the one exception to all these other horror stories, and a completely legitimate company.
But given its same high price, unsupported claims, and (in our opinion) underhanded marketing tactics, should you roll the dice? Ultimately, that’s only a question you can answer.
Bottom line: If you’re looking to lose weight, there’s no easy way out. The only way to shed pounds and keep them off for the long term is through eating healthy and exercising regularly. Any supplement claiming otherwise is almost certainly a scam.
