GAIAsciences Garcinia Cambogia Super Citrimax Fat Burner Review

 3star

Initial Thoughts:

It looks like an old botanical bottle of something whipped up by the vendor of an olde world apothecary in Victorian England, right next door to the gin palace and three doors down from the opium den.

I guess because of the look it does feel like something one would buy from a chemist and therefore, it should work. We shall see…

Calcium Hydroxycitrate – On studies involving obese people those who were administered this compound decreased their BMI by 5.4%.

Gymnema sylvestre – When used in conjunction with Calcium Hydroxycitrate the two reduce body weight and BMI, suppress appetite, improve blood lipid profiles, increase serum leptin and serotonin levels and increase fat oxidation.

Chromium – This helps to move blood sugar (glucose) from the bloodstream into the cells to be used as energy and to turn fats, carbohydrates, and proteins into energy. This is found in the #1 fatburner on the market.

Potassium Hydroxycitrate – Could help to temporarily increase satiety/feeling of fullness. Works with Calcium and Gymnema.

Garcinia Cambogia – It appears to block an enzyme called citrate lyase, which your body uses to make fat. Actual weight loss results aren’t impressive, nor conclusive.

Instructions:

3 pills 3 times per day. That’s a hell of a lot of pills to take, make sure you don’t forget.

Good:

When dosed together, the calcium, gymnema and potassium work well with studies showing a decrease in BMI when on a 2000 calorie diet and 30 minutes walking per day. Serotonin levels increase too making you feel more full and less likely to eat.

We like the inclusion of Chronium too which can help you burn of fats plus others as an energy source.

Bad:

The Garcinia isn’t that effective, results from studies are not conclusive.

Losing weight, decreasing BMI and reducing appetite is all well and good if that is your sole aim, however, if you are looking to build or maintain muscle mass or tone that isn’t going to be helpful as you need lots of good quality, raw foods.

Missing a few vital ingredients, we should be looking at around 9 ingredients to be truly effective.

9 pills per day is excessive to say the least, I can imagine many users forgetting doses and timings etc.

My Review Conclusion:

This has a few good elements, namely 4 of the 5 ingredients, what I find astonishing though is that the product is based around the least effective ingredient present.

I think, before we could fully recommend, GAIAsciences should re-evaluate and start including additional, proven ingredients as found in the best fat burner to really create a giant slayer.

My score:

3/5
