About Pure Garcinia Cambogia Extract
The Pure Garcinia Cambogia Slim System claims to be an easy way to lose weight without having to diet or exercise. By taking this supplement on an empty stomach, 30-60 minutes before a meal, shedding weight is supposedly effortless.
The main ingredient, Hydroxycitric Acid, is derived from the skin of the Garcinia Cambogia fruit; this extract has been used for centuries as an appetite suppressant. HCA inhibits the body’s natural process of converting carbs to fat, so basically the Garcinia Cambogia Extract prevents the production of fat. Not only does it aid in weight loss but it also elevates your mood.
The Pure Garcini CESM can be purchased directly through their site. A one month supply costs $48.00. If you purchase a two month supply it costs $98.00 and comes with one additional free bottle. Purchasing a three month supply, with two additional free bottles costs $148.00. There is a satisfaction guarantee and a low price guarantee for their supplements. Customers who are unhappy with the product can return the items within 30 days for a refund less the cost of a $5.00/per bottle restocking fee.
The word spread quickly about the use of Garcinia Cambogia Extract for weight loss when it was featured on the Dr. OZ show. His backing of the ingredient within supplements influenced many people and although Dr. OZ did not recommend any single product on his show he did mention that the supplement must have at least 50% HCA for it to be effective. The Pure Garcinia Cambogia slim system is made with 50% HCA which means it falls into his guidelines.
On the slim system website there are clinical studies and references that may be found within the terms section; however, online reviews say there is a lack of consistency in the trials. Reviews also discuss the controversy regarding the safeness of the product. The argument arose when the makers of Hydroxycut were forced to remove the product from the market because it contained HCA. Since then, the company has re-released the Hydroxycut product, but now it is formulated without HCA.
Before taking this weight loss supplement or any similar product, consult your doctor to make sure you are okay to do so. Every person’s body chemistry reacts differently to medicines, vitamins, and supplements. Side effects that could occur include dry mouth, headaches, insomnia, rapid heartbeat, nausea, and possible digestive track discomfort.
Weight loss is not easy and keeping the weight off is even harder. While some Garcinia Cambogia Extract users may see results quickly, others may not see results for a month; furthermore, other individuals may not experience any weight loss. Incorporating exercise and a healthy diet into any weight loss plan should be a priority, regardless if you are taking supplements or not.
7 ‘Pure Garcinia Cambogia Extract’ Reviews
I tried this because I saw it on Dr. Oz and it was a free trial bottle so I only had to pay for shipping. The next month, another bottle arrived so I got back on the website and read the small print. They signed me up for an auto-refill program at $99.98 a bottle! It also said they would give you an RMA number for one bottle, and credit your account. So I called to get one and cancel my account. I sent the bottle back with a tracking number and still wasn't credited, and was charged for another bottle! When I called back, the customer service rep was completely unhelpful and kept asking if I wanted to cancel my account. I told her I already cancelled my account a week ago, but she just kept saying the same thing. It was so frustrating! She finally said she would credit my account and she hung up on me! Stay away from this company!!!
Here's what happened to me. When I first ordered it in June there was a free trial of colon cleanse that I was not aware of. 2 weeks later I am billed 69.95 for an order of colon cleanse. At this time I have not received anything. I called them to tell them this they tell me that the product is on back order and that when I receive the cleanse to mail it back with a number wrote on it that they provide me with. So in July when I get it I mail it back and do not receive a refund. I then get my Gar. Cam. try it and call in before the 30 days is up because I am gaining weight instead of losing, they tell me that it is to late and I inform them that my order was on back order and that I didn’t get it until sometime in July. She tells me to put the same number on it that I had put on the cleanse. I call them today to be told that they received the products to late. So they get a unopened cleanse and 2 new bottles of Gar. Cam. that were never opened as well. I was not told that there was a time frame to get it mailed to them when I called in. 108.99 plus 69.95 down the drain. I ask to speak to supervisor and was told that they would get back to me. They have my money and their product which they can resell.
Starting to think I've been scammed
I came across this ad on my facebook feed. That was my first mistake, I should never have looked at it further. I saw the Dr. Oz endorsement so I was taken in. Put an order in for 5 months supply of Pure Garcinia Extract capsules. Was supposed to cost me $96. Later I got an email from them saying my order was approved. Then 3 days later I got 4 emails ( why 4?) saying my order had shipped and it would be 2-3 business days. These emails said I could track my shipment and gave a link to USPS. HOWEVER, nowhere is there a tracking number given to track my shipment. How can I track an order without a tracking number? So now I am extremely concerned that this is a scam. I have not received any product. I have 2 charges on my credit card, for $154.01 and a second charge for $28.83!!!! What the hell are these charges?
I have sent an email to email@example.com to ask them what is going on, but I don't have any faith that they will answer me. The next step will be to dispute the charges with my credit company. So upset at this whole situation. I am holding out that maybe the product will still arrive so I won't be completely ripped off, even if the charges ended up higher than was stated?
I purchased the Garcinia Cambogia the free trail for 14 days and only paid shipping $2.95. I then called before the 14 day trail ended to cancel my order and they said I would be charged $38.71 and then they would cancel my card. I said no I will not be charged that amount since I am canceling my order. Sherrly said to me that my card will not be charged. I then looked at my bank account online and they charged my card any way. I called back and spoke to Rose and she could not refund my money back unless I return the product?? So misleading in the ad. I am very upset. Not satisfied at all. I was lied to from the beginning. Will never purchase from online again!! I am going to the head person and complaining. I am a single mom of 2 and 40 dollars is a lot to me. Its taking away from my children. Very upset. I will make sure I get my credit back!
What type of math are they using?
I read on their website BUY 3 GET 2 FREE...cost $148. The cost of each bottle is $29.60. $29.60x 3= $88.80 not $148. So then I multiplied $29.60 x 5= $148. So according to my calculations they are charging for the 2 FREE bottles.
I thought FREE means NO CHARGE!!! What kind of scam are they trying to put over on the public?
I sent them an e-mail tonight (5/20/13) asking them to explain their math. It will be interesting what their explanation will be.
