There is one weight loss ingredient that has been talked about more often over the past year than all the rest; Garcinia Cambogia.
Yet despite its undoubted weight loss benefits not all supplements that contain this ingredient have been good value for money.
Some simply don’t contain enough of the beneficial ingredient to make any difference to your weight, while others have been too expensive.
Whats worse are those supplements that hide their true cost from the public, with many people signing up for a ‘free trial’ only to receive a huge bill once the trial ends.
Garcinia Slim 500 caught my attention following a spam email that I received, in this review I am going to look at this supplement in more detail to see if it is a scam or is recommended for use alongside your current diet and exercise regime.
Claimed benefits of Garcinia Slim 500
The following claims have been made on the Garcinia Slim 500 website:
- Burn fat and lose weight
- Control your cravings
- Decrease your belly fat
- Reduce calorie intake by 25%
These claimed benefits certainly sound impressive but we would need to look at what ingredients have been used before we can verify how accurate they are.
Ingredients of Garcinia Slim 500
Garcinia Slim 500 claims to contain 1650 mg of Garcinia Cambogia (50% HCA) in each dose, which is incredible.
It also contains Resveratrol, Chromium and Acai Berry, which are all proven to aid your own weight loss efforts. It is just a shame that there is no mention of what dosages there are of these added ingredients.
You would think that having gone through the effort of listing how much Garcinia Cambogia is present that they would do the same for the other ingredients.
Without this information how do you know how effective the supplement is, or indeed how safe it is.
Chromium for example has been linked to both kidney problems and liver damage.
Price of Garcinia Slim 500
Like so many other supplements available as a trial Garcinia Slim 500 does not list any of its prices on its sales page.
To find out this important information you will have to read their terms and conditions.
The cost of Garcinia Slim 500 is £59.95, which will be charged to you at the conclusion of the 14 day trial. Unlike many other trial offers there is no mention of any auto shipping, though you should urge on the side of caution if you have signed up to this offer.
Is Garcinia Slim 500 a scam?
Although not a scam, Garcinia Slim 500 is not recommended either.
It may contain dangerous ingredients and hiding its cost from consumers is not good going to win them many friends, especially those who are subsequently charged the full price of the supplement without even realising.
