We take an in-depth look at Greenceutics Green Pura below, to see if it is an effective weight loss aid.
Greenceutics Green Pura is a green tea extract manufactured by Greenceutics and sold exclusively through amazon. Whilst third party sources suggest that the company used to have an official website, it appears to be no longer active. The same third party sources also suggest that this product contains 300 mg of green tea extract, with no other active ingredients.
This could not be verified as no ingredients list is provided on the sales page, and the company provides no contact information. It appears that this is the only product that Greenceutics manufacture.
The manufacturers of Greenceutics Green Pura claim that it has the following features:
It appears that the single active ingredient in Greenceutics Green Pura is green tea extract. Ingredient quantities are not provided, although third party reviewers state that each capsule contains 300 mg of the extract.
Green tea contains both catechins and caffeine. Catechins, especially EGCG, are thought to increase thermogenesis in the body, raising the temperature of the body and therefore burning more calories. Caffeine is known to directly boost the body’s metabolic rate slightly for a few hours after consumption. Both these effects will cause the body to burn more calories, but clinical studies do suggest that the effects are ‘small but significant’.
Studies also show that the effect is so small that it is easily counteracted by a poor diet, and so will only benefit people who are also following a calorie restricted diet.
As green tea is the only ingredient in Greenceutics Green Pura, the diet pill is unlikely to have a significant effect upon weight loss. There is no information available stating the composition of the extract used, and so it is even more difficult to compare this product to the relevant clinical studies.
No potential side effects are listed by the manufacturer. Green tea is the only ingredient used in this product. Side effects of consuming green tea are primarily linked with the caffeine that is naturally present in green tea. Consuming caffeine can cause headaches, increased urination, dehydration, jitteriness, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, heart palpitations and problems sleeping.
Not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women or those under the age of 18.
Consult your doctor if you are unsure about the suitability of using this supplement before purchasing.
Because the product is sold on Amazon, we were a significant number of customer reviews. Whilst many of them are positive, we and some other customers have concerns that a large number of them may be fake.
These are all fake reviews because when I checked out the other reviews for the “people” that reviewed this product they all have reviews for the exact same items on their recent activity. That is a pretty big coincidence if you ask me.
I’ve got this from a friend and it did not work for me. Since I didn’t know how long my friend had the bottle for I thought I’d order more to try some to make sure it was that one bottle or just the product in general. Overall, it doesn’t really work for me, I’m going to be trying now brand of extract to see if that works.
Doesn’t work. I don’t feel energized or losing any weight.
There are far more positive reviews than negative reviews for this product. However, almost none of the positive reviews are from verified purchases. The positive reviews below are from verified customers. They tend to mention an energy boost, but neglect to mention any weight changes.
Gives me energy I like the natural ingredients and love the antioxidant support.
Works well for energy.
I was a big zenergreen fan and have been searching for a replacement since I have been unable to find it for sale. This product fills the void but it isn’t quite as smooth on my stomach as the first product mentioned was. On the plus side it does make me feel good, not sure about the weight loss.
I purchased these because the reviews were great…I followed the directions and noted no significant difference. Then I started to take an additional pill. That was the trick…they work great now and I recommend them. Just need to be cognizant of the fact you may need to adjust dosage for personal use.
The sales page for this product states that Greenceutics Green Pura is a ‘Revolutionary yet powerful green tea extract diet pill’. We fail to see how this product is revolutionary, considering there are many diet pills containing green tea extract on the market.
Whilst green tea is known to mildly boost the metabolism and increase thermogenesis, it is still considered to be a moderate weight loss aid, with small weight loss results at best. Without knowing the strength of the extract, especially the quantities of certain polyphenols, catechins and caffeine, it is impossible to directly compare this product to other green tea extracts, or to establish its potential effectiveness.
However, we can speculate that it may cause a very mild effect overall. Some studies suggest that green tea can also reduce the appetite, although we feel that the claims that it will ‘reduce the appetite by as much as 60% by reducing food cravings and preventing overeating’ are exaggerated.
This product is available exclusively on amazon at a price of $14.99 per bottle, plus delivery costs. It is listed under the description ‘Green Tea Extract Diet Pill for Weight Loss, Fat Burn, Increased Metabolism, & Antioxidant’, but a search for Greenceutics will also lead to the same page.
There appears to be a 100% satisfaction guarantee on the product. However, this is only mentioned in the pictures of the product on amazon, and is not detailed anywhere else on the sales page. As there is no way of contacting the company except through amazon, consumers may want to establish the accuracy of this guarantee before ordering.
The product itself may seem relatively cheap for a diet pill, but considering that it contains only one ingredient, it is actually a fairly expensive green tea extract. As Greenceutics Green Pura has only a single ingredient, it does not appear to be very strong or effective at aiding weight loss.
The only ingredient is clinically proven to boost the metabolism, but is also not very strong, and so is likely to have a minimal effect upon weight loss when not combined with other common diet pill ingredients.
The manufacturers of Greenceutics Green Pura also have a dubious background; With no official website and no information available about the company, it is difficult to establish how trustworthy they are. They state that they offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee in one promotional picture, but this is not verified elsewhere.
There is also no contact information available for Greenceutics. As some of the reviews for the product appear to be fake, it may be that the company itself has been posting these fraudulent reviews, in hopes of boosting sales figures.
Overall, we are not impressed with Greenceutics Green Pura, as it appears to be an overhyped green tea extract. Its use will not dramatically increase weight loss, and the product is not revolutionary, despite the claims made by the manufacturers.
