Miracle Weight Loss Supplement?????

I haven’t done a blog post in a while, but this is a message that I would like to convey to you. We launched our new Garcinia cambogia and Green Coffee Bean supplement on the 1st of July, and some of you may be wondering what our reasoning was for producing this product...

As many of you know, I have mentioned in the past that there is no magic weight-loss solution. I still believe this is true.

We have been aware of this ingredient for many years, but thanks to Dr Oz who touted it as a miracle weight loss supplement on his show back in November 2013, a sudden increase in garcinia products became available on the market. It seems that some of these 'marketers' were selling questionable products and scamming vulnerable consumers.

Garcinia can benefit some people in helping them attain their weight management objectives and indeed some of our customers have got positive results from these other products, but, then others felt uneasy about the quality of the products they were taking and approached us to see if we would produce a Garcinia product.

We listened and decided to create a supplement that could give our customers direct access to a high quality Garcinia product containing high levels of HCA.

We did a simple comparison of our Garcinia product and compared it to brands like GNC, Blooms and Vita-Web…all good quality products. Based on pricing, it was interesting to see just good our value for money it. That was quite an interesting exercise in that I know many people think that we are expensive because they compare our Total Balance with a multi-vitamin product which it is not. The multi-vitamin component is the cheapest part of Total Balance.

*Fillers are ingredients such as calcium, chromium, iodine, and potassium, which are used to bulk up the product and may interfere with the efficacy of the Garcinia ingredient.

There is good clinical data to support Garcinia cambogia and its benefits for weight management, but I am certainly not saying that this is a miracle solution. Without changes to diet, lifestyle and levels of exercise, any weight lost will quickly pile back on.

Weight loss needs to be both effective and safe. I find it irresponsible for companies to promote situations where a person has used a product and lost eight kilograms in two weeks. Extreme weight loss is not healthy for the body and can cause stress on organs and cells. Ultimately these hyped up stories cause confusion among many consumers who expect such results, and it also encourages extreme weight loss without paying any regard to its effect on overall health.

Healthy weight management is a step in the right direction toward better health as it can help to lower risk factors for many diseases. However, it is only one piece of the puzzle and needs to be combined with high quality nutritional supplements for maximum benefits on health and wellbeing.

If you feel Garcinia could help you with your weight loss goals I would recommend adding it to our Total Balance,Omega-3 and Kiwi-Klenz. They work in synergy to strengthen organs, protect cells and promote overall health and to give you more years and ultimately a better quality of life.

I can personally guarantee the quality and the potency of all our ingredients, and that what is stated on the label is in the product. If you have any questions on our Garcinia product, you are welcome to email our award-winning customer relations team at customer.service@xtend-life.com.
