Vita Web Garcinia Cambogia Facts

  • Each bottle contains 60 capsules (one month’s supply)
  • Guarantee is valid for 90 days
  • Vita Web is a US online supplements company

Vita Web Garcinia Cambogia is a straightforward looking weight loss supplement. It essentially contains just one ingredient – Garcinia Cambogia extract with 80% HCA. There are also extremely low amounts of calcium, potassium and chromium contained in each capsule.

Garcinia Cambogia is a popular weight loss ingredient right now, and many people will be keen to try it out for themselves.

It has been widely touted for both health and weight loss. After it was featured on prime time TV show Dr Oz and described by Oz himself as a, ‘the holy grail for weight loss’ its popularity went through the roof.

Garcinia Cambogia is an Asian fruit similar to a Tamarind and is known for its sour taste. The fruit contains high levels of hydroxycitric acid (HCA) in the peel of the fruit. HCA is also present in other fruit skins including lemons and is a derivative of citric acid but Garcinia has the highest concentration.

It is this substance that is believed to help weight loss and has made it so popular with supplement manufacturers. According to some studies, Garcinia Cambogia (HCA) may help double or even triple weight loss.

The main way that it works is by inhibiting an enzyme called citrate lyase that works to turn unused carbs and dietary fats into body fats. Citrate lyase is an important step in fatty acid synthesis and is the link between the metabolism of carbohydrates and the production of fat.

Simply put, preventing this process means, that fat gain is stopped and as a result, the production of LDH cholesterol is reduced.

The second benefit for weight loss is that HCA is believed to reduce the appetite because some studies suggest it may affect serotonin, the brain’s feel good chemical. This is associated with weight gain because low serotonin often leads to emotional comfort eating. Some people say that Garcinia Cambogia prevents sugar cravings which ties in with this theory.

Vita Web Garcinia Cambogia is a high strength supplement that contains 1000mg of this active ingredient per serving. It also contains essential minerals calcium and potassium in low but safe amounts and chromium a trace mineral which means that your body requires very little of it.

How to Take Vita Web Garcinia Cambogia

As a dietary supplement take two (2) capsules daily with plenty of water.

Do not exceed six (6) capsules per day.

Vita Web is an internet based supplements company based in the USA. According to their information, all supplements are manufactured in the USA and conform to GMP (good manufacturing practices) standards in an FDA inspected facility.

We like transparency about the origins of the supplements we cover and our impression is that this is a good quality and safe product to use. Vita Web product a range of supplements aimed at health, anti aging and weight loss.

Other products include, Yacon Root Extract, which like Garcinia Cambogia is a one-ingredient weight loss supplement. Yacon Root may help lower cholesterol and reduce the appetite.

Other weight loss supplements include Colon Cleanse – a detox supplement and Probiotic Formula designed to improve digestive health. We have seen Vita Web supplements around for a while but Vita Web Garcinia Cambogia is the first Vita Web product we have covered in a review.

Vita Web Garcinia Cambogia Concerns:

  • The guarantee looks good. Will Vita Web keep to their promise?
  • Will it do anything at all? This supplement could be a waste of money for some people
  • There is a lack of evidence that proves garcinia cambogia works

What Does Vita Web Garcinia Cambogia Claim To Do?

According to the Vita Web advertising, Garcinia Cambogia will help you:

  • Lose Weight Faster!
  • Can Prevent Formation of Fat Cells
  • Appetite Control
  • Improved Well-Being
  • Get Back in Your Old Jeans!

The product description claims it will,

shrink your mid-section!

and is a,

Non-stimulating appetite suppressant.

That will curb your appetite naturally without hunger pains or side effects. The advertising mentions the research too but does not explain it beyond stating that,

Research shows 60% HCA has potential to burn that stubborn belly fat.

However, before we all hit the buy it button, it is important to know that most of the research into Garcinia Cambogia has been carried out via animal testing so this is not strictly proven to work in this way for humans.

So What Is Vita Web Garcinia Cambogia and What Are The Ingredients?

Vita Web Garcinia Cambogia is a general-purpose diet pill that may help block carbs and help you reduce appetite. Serving size is equal to two capsules. Amounts provided here are by serving and not per capsule.

  • Calcium Carbonate (50mg): Form of calcium naturally obtained from rocks and used in industry for a variety of purposes. It is a food additive often in toothpaste, used as a cheap calcium supplement and as an antacid. Calcium is a mineral and essential for healthy teeth and bones. The RDA for adults is set at 1000mg per day.
  • Chromium (200mcg): This is a trace mineral, which means the body requires very little. It may help improve the way the body uses insulin and may be effective as a treatment for diabetes but requires further testing. Safe amounts here.
  • Potassium (50mg): This is a vital mineral in the body and easily obtainable by diet. Potassium is present in bananas, cereals fruit and vegetables. Medical opinion is that there is no need to take potassium supplements unless recommended to do so by your doctor.
  • Garcinia Cambogia Extract with 80% HCA (1000mg): According to studies on rats, HCA inhibits an enzyme called Citrate Lyase making it hard for the body to produce fat from carbohydrates. Other studies show that HCA increases serotonin levels so may lead to reduced appetite and food cravings. The product information provides a link to an overview of clinical tests. One carried out on 60 human volunteers found that “At the end of 8 weeks, body weight and BMI decreased by 5.4% and 5.2%, respectively. Food intake, total cholesterol, LDL, triglycerides and serum leptin levels were significantly reduced, while HDL and serotonin levels, and excretion of urinary fat metabolites (a biomarker of fat oxidation) significantly increased”. The downside is that these promising results have not been seen in all clinical tests. According to the Journal of Obesity, Garcinia may generate some weight loss initially but the effect is so small it is not significantly proven. In another test on 135 overweight subjects, the conclusion was the exact opposite. It concluded that “Garcinia Cambogia failed to produce significant weight loss and fat mass loss”.

So What Does All This Mean?

Despite some positive results seen in some clinical testing, the overriding medical opinion of Garcinia Cambogia is that its weight loss results are weak and inconsistent. However some studies do show a small weight loss effect and according to the Journal of Obesity,

Garcinia extracts/HCA can cause short-term weight loss.


The magnitude of the effect is small, and the clinical relevance is uncertain.

The good news is that side effects are extremely rare and Garcinia Cambogia seems safe. Vita Web Garcinia Cambogia in turn looks to be a safe supplement that may help provide some support for weight loss.

Does Vita Web Garcinia Cambogia Have Any Side Effects?

Garcinia Cambogia appears to be safe and well tolerated but it may cause some mild side effects. The HCA content may cause a burning sensation. Other side effects include:

  • Nausea
  • Headache
  • Digestive tract discomfort
  • Skin rash

If you are taking a statin or are diabetic, you should avoid taking garcinia.

Speak with your doctor before taking garcinia if you fall into one of these categories.

We also do not recommend anyone with Alzheimer’s, dementia, pregnant, trying to conceive or breast-feeding to take Garcinia Cambogia.

Any Vita Web Garcinia CambogiaReviews From Customers?

There are plenty of customer reviews for Vita Web Garcinia Cambogia and the overriding opinion is very positive. However, Vita Web have been encouraging customers to review this supplement by offering it at a reduced price, which may have clouded some viewpoints.

One customer reported,

I have found Garcinia Cambodia to be an effective weight loss product in general and the Vita Web extra strength did a good job of helping to suppress my appetite. I have received the product at a reduced cost in exchange for an honest opinion and I am happy to give this product a good review.

Many customers have mentioned a reduction in food cravings without any weight loss,

I have tried this product for about 2 weeks. I haven’t noticed a dramatic weight loss from the product. It really doesn’t suppress my appetite. But it reduces my cravings for sweet and sugary things. …. all in all it is a good product.


Helps me with some of my cravings and gives me a little boost to energy. I’m pretty happy with this product.

Not everyone is as pleased. This customer found it actually led to increased weight and food cravings,

I was super excited to take this!! I work out 6 days a week and eat super healthy, but once I started this I started to gain weight which is crazy!! It also made me crave things more, more carbs and treats!

Another negative reviewer reported,

Have taken for 3 weeks and feel no different. Did not curb appetite nor did I feel any extra energy.

However we are impressed with Vita Web’s customer service who have responded to the few negative feedback comments with an offer of assistance.

So Does Vita Web Garcinia Cambogia Work?

There are thousands of Garcinia supplements on the market and despite the rather sketchy clinical evidence, this ingredient remains popular.Vita Web Garcinia Cambogia may be a good choice if you want to try it. It contains high quantities per serving and has a HCA content of 80%.

Although the effects are hardly likely to be earth shattering, many customers feel that it helps support weight loss if combined with a healthy diet and exercise programme.

It does not work for everyone but it seems to help prevent sugar cravings for some. There is not much clinical evidence and results are at best minimal but this supplement seems safe and many people seem to find it helpful. Side effects are not an issue.

Watchdog Verdict

We have reviewed countless Garcinia Cambogia supplements and have yet to be convinced with this ingredient. The scientific proof is flimsy and it is not actually proven to work very effectively, if at all for weight loss.

That said, this ingredient remains popular and we feel that Vita Web Garcinia Cambogia may be a good choice should you wish to try this out. This supplement contains a large serving of Garcinia with high levels of HCA so if Garcinia Cambogia is going to do anything at all, this supplement one will probably be the one to prove it either way.

We like that this supplement seems safe and is manufactured in the USA. The company seem reputable and we like that it comes with a good-looking guarantee and that there are plenty of customer reviews, which seem very favourable.

So should we add Vita Web Garcinia Cambogia to our approved list? Well no. There is nothing wrong with this particular supplement but we are not convinced by the claims that say Garcinia Cambogia is effective for weight loss. For this reason, we have no other choice but to reject it.

  1. I was very misled about the charges for this. I was told it was just the $4.95 S&H for the first bottle. No other charge. It was NOT a recurring, monthly product. You had to order every month. I told them after I got the bottle that I didn’t want any more, it didn’t work for me. They charged me $86.94. It says 90 days guarantee. How do I get my money back. When I called, they pretty much said, tough luck, the first bottle is that much.
