Below we take an in-depth look at Healthy Natural Systems Garcinia Cambogia Chews to see how effective they really are at aiding weight loss, and to see if they are an affordable and sustainable weight loss supplement.
Healthy Natural Systems Garcinia Cambogia Chews is a chew type sweet that contains Garcinia Cambogia. It is marketed as an appetite suppressant and fat burner.
Garcinia Cambogia has been featured as a key or even sole ingredient in many diet pills since it was featured on the Dr Oz Show. Fans of Garcinia Cambogia who dislike taking pills or capsules may be interested in Healthy Natural Systems Garcinia Cambogia Chews, a chewable sweet that contains a similar dosage of Garcinia Cambogia that would be typically found in a capsule supplement. Some people believe that by eating a chew, rather than taking a supplement, the consumer feels as if they have eaten a snack, and so are more likely to feel some kind of appetite suppressing benefit.
Healthy Natural Systems Garcinia Cambogia Chews are manufactured by Healthy Natural Systems Global. There is very little information available about this company. Their official website merely states that their products are sold through GNC.com, and link to the sales page on the GNC website. There is a contact email, [email protected], but there is no phone number or company address listed.
As a dietary supplement, adults take 1 to 4 chews daily as needed.
GNC provides the following list of benefits of Healthy Natural Systems Garcinia Cambogia Chews:
Each serving of a single chew contains two active ingredients, chromium and Garcinia Cambogia. Consumers are instructed to take up to four chews per day, as required. The ingredient quantities listed below are per single chew.
Garcinia Cambogia is seemingly a fairly unpredictable weight loss aid. In one study that is often misquoted, the participants who took garcinia cambogia did lose weight whilst on the trial, but the placebo-taking group actually lost significantly more weight than the garcinia cambogia-taking group. There are also studies that show no changes in metabolism, appetite or weight loss whilst using garcinia cambogia. At best, Garcinia Cambogia could aid weight loss in some people, but its mechanisms are not well understood, and it seems to be highly unpredictable at best.
Chromium appears to work consistently to help lower blood sugar levels, which is useful for anyone with pre-diabetic symptoms. This could lead to a tiny amount of weight loss in the long run, but the amounts provided in Healthy Natural Systems Garcinia Cambogia Chews are nowhere near enough to make even this tiny impact to the speed of weight loss.
Despite there being only two active ingredients used in Healthy Natural Systems Garcinia Cambogia Chews, it is still possible for consumers to develop some side effects.
Garcinia Cambogia can cause some side effects including nausea, digestive tract discomfort, and headache. Its long term safety is unknown, as clinical studies typically focus upon short term use of up to 12 weeks.
Chromium lowers blood sugar levels. For most people this will not cause any side effects, but in people who already have low blood sugar levels, this can cause dizziness, light-headedness and even fainting.
Not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Not intended for use by those under the age of 18. Consult a doctor if you are unsure about the suitability of this or any other diet supplement before purchase. Consult your physician prior to use if you have high blood pressure or heart problems or are taking prescription drugs. Do not exceed the recommended daily intake.
There are numerous customer reviews for this product on the GNC website, one of the online retailers that stocks this product.
Not a miracle but a good product. Started taking this two weeks ago and bought it again. I try to eat well and exercise regularly – I am not looking for weight loss, more for maintenance. I’m in my 50’s, this is a challenge. Its not a miracle, its a good appetite suppressant and it’s real benefit for me is it’s a mood and energy booster.
Maintained weight. I have been taking this for over a month, 2 a day was to much, so I have taken 1 a day and maintaining my weight I do not see any weight loss or weight gain. Depends on your size and how much your trying to lose I recommend 1 if you only need to lose few pounds and 2 if you need to lose more. No side affects from this so far, I’d recommend this product especially if you can’t swallow pills.
I would buy this product again! Easy to take! Convenient to take with you! I use with B12 chews. I take the B12 first thing in the morning. I then take this product throughout the day to curb appetite and cut fat. Sometimes they are sticky and hard to swallow.
I am about 5’3″ and use to weigh 153 but gained a few and now weigh 190lbs. I want to lose some weight feel healthy so, I took these chews for three weeks and it did not work for me. I have a busy schedule. I work 5 days a week, 1pm to 10pm in a clothing retail and I am on my feet all day and thought these chews would help curb my hunger but I feel like it made me less conscious of what I should eat. So instead of curbing my appetite, I felt more hungry and had bigger meals. I tried portioning my meals while taking the chews but it did not work.
I followed as suggested taking 1 chew about 30 mins to 1 hour before a meal. The first day I felt the same as any other day, still having an appetite. The next few days I decided to do some workouts and the chews helped control my hunger for only that hour because usually when I workout, I get shaky and hungry. It did curb my appetite ONE night and it made me feel really full after two slices of pizza, but the rest of the nights afterwards I felt hungry and the need to eat. These chews did not work for me.
I am trying to eat as clean as possible, and wanted something to suppress my appetite so I wouldn’t feel sooo hungry and crave a bunch of junk. They didn’t work for me, but everyone is different. I saw a youtube review for one woman, who they worked wonders for. They didn’t affect my appetite at all. Also, the taste is like a salty starburst. I wasn’t too fond of that either.
Looking at the clinical evidence available, whilst it is possible that some consumers could lose weight using Healthy Natural Systems Garcinia Cambogia Chews, there are also likely to be many customers who are not satisfied with the product’s performance and a potential lack of results. Garcinia Cambogia has incredibly mixed clinical evidence, with no clear proof that it definitively works to aid significant weight loss.
The dosage of chromium used in this product is not enough to make any difference to weight loss. Even if a larger dose was provided, chromium has a tiny impact upon weight loss, even over long term use.
Overall, it seems that the majority of people would not feel any benefit from Healthy Natural Systems Garcinia Cambogia Chews.

Garcinia Cambogia is at best an unpredictable weight loss aid – whilst some studies show that it does aid weight loss, there are also plenty of available studies that show no link between Garcinia Cambogia and an increased metabolic rate, a suppressed appetite or weight loss. The other active ingredient in Healthy Natural Systems Garcinia Chews is Chromium, which could lower blood sugar levels and aid a tiny amount of weight loss; however the amount used in each chew is far too low to have any real impact upon weight loss.
Considering that consumers are instructed to take up to four chews per day, a single bag of the product could last anywhere between 8 and 30 days. For consumers who want to eat numerous chews per day, this makes the product expensive to use in the long term. There is a money back guarantee for this product if purchased through GNC, but this is also the most expensive supplier of the weight loss aid.
Overall, we do not recommend Healthy Natural Systems Garcinia Chews to our readers. Whilst Garcinia Cambogia may work for a few people, it is unreliable in both studies and anecdotal reports from consumers, and so many consumers of Healthy Natural Systems Garcinia Chews could be left disappointed.
