This is a review of NatureWise Garcinia Cambogia, a nutritional supplement that is said to help you to lose weight by accelerating your metabolism and suppressing your appetite. Presented as a 100% pure extract of the Garcinia Cambogia pumpkin-shaped fruit, with 60% Hydrocitric Acid (HCA) which is derived from the rind, NatureWise Garcinia Cambogia is said to help reduce body weight in three ways: by blocking excess carbs and sugars from being stored as fat; using these carbs and sugars for energy which can help to reduce appetite; and increasing serotonin levels which is said to help reduce emotional food cravings.
There has been a great deal of excitement over Garcinia Cambogia as a natural weight loss product over the years. As a result, there is a slew of Garcinia Cambogia supplements available.
- Garcinia Cambogia (fruit) 500mg
- 60% Hydrocitric Acid (HCA) (rind) 300mg
- Vegetable cellulose (capsule); organic rice bran extract
Although the formulation is pure, and does not contain wheat, gluten, dairy, corn, soy, eggs, tree nuts, peanuts, fish, or shellfish, it also doesn’t contain anything else to differentiate it from other Garcinia Cambogia products on the market. In fact, at 500mg for Garcinia Cambogia, there is less of the active ingredient per capsule than is the case with many other brands.
However, its ingredients are sourced responsibly and the manufacturer has developed an innovative app which users can download to find out information about every ingredient in each capsule, as well as its source and how it works. Unfortunately, we were unable to download the app to try it out.
Each capsule contains 500mg of Garcinia Cambogia extract, which is standardized to 60% HCA.
The container itself indicates that the maximum serving per day is 3 capsules but does not indicate how or when this should be taken.
At present, you can buy a bottle of 180 capsules directly from the manufacturer’s website for $39.99, reduced from $47.50. However, we found the product on offer on Amazon for $21.99.
The manufacturer offers a full, money-back guarantee on the product.
Conclusion – NatureWise Garcinia Cambogia with 100% Natural HCA Extract
We like the fact that NatureWise Garcinia Cambogia with 100% Natural HCA Extract is 100% pure and that the fruit from which it is manufactured is selectively sourced to ensure its superior quality. We also like that it is third party tested to ensure purity and potency. It is Good Manufacturing Product (GMP) certified.
However, we could not find anything to indicate that it was any more effective than any of the other Garcinia Cambogia products on the market. Indeed, the product had only a 60% five-star rating on Amazon – and the independence of many of those reviews was questionable.
We were concerned that the only place to obtain in depth information about the product’s ingredients, and potentially other important issues, was by using the app. As mentioned, we were unable to download and open the app. Having an app like this is a neat idea, but it should be accessible to users everywhere – and the information it offers should also be made available elsewhere either in the form of a product insert or downloadable on the manufacturer’s website.
