As for garcinia cambogia supplements ...
If Your Garcinia Cambogia Supplement Contains This One Ingredient (And Most Do)...
...It's Almost Guaranteed NOT To Work!2
Keep Reading To Find Out Why...
When Dr. Oz called Garcinia Cambogia "The Holy Grail" there was a nearly-instant explosion online. Companies (as they always do) came crawling out of the woodwork to get in on the demand this claim generated.
Unfortunately, in their rush, most overlooked the actual science.
As you've probably already learned, its the active ingredient, hydroxycitric acid (HCA) that that makes garcinia work.1.
What most companies WON'T tell you is that studies have shown adding calcium to a garcinia cambogia product makes the HCA UNUSABLE to your body.2
When we did a simple google search for garcinia cambogia, we were very disappointed in what we found. We see companies using words like "pure" "ultra" and "premium"... yet every one we see lists calcium as the very first ingredient on the label.
(Most make you scroll to the very bottom of the page to even find the link to the label, but it's there.)
3 Things to Avoid When Buying a Garcinia Cambogia Supplement:
1. Avoid “Other Ingredients”—Especially Calcium!
Additional ingredients may look good—natural ingredients like mango and green tea extract may offer you similar benefits as garcinia cambogia. BUT, it’s not likely each capsule will have enough of any ingredient to be effective… wasting your time, money, and room in your pill box!
And as you just found out, calcium actually makes HCA less bioavailable, so you definitely want to avoid supplements with calcium.
2. Stay Away From Mega-Doses
Some companies use “ultra” or “mega-doses” of HCA—upward of 1600mg—which they claim makes their product more effective. Not so!
The dosage most effective in actual studies was 500mg of 65% HCA before breakfast and another 500mg before dinner.5 . (You shouldn’t exceed 1500mg.)
3. Watch Out For Fillers, Artificial Colors and Flow Agents.
• Things like magnesium stearate or rice flour can add up and have more effect on your health than you might think.
• Anything that sounds like it really shouldn’t be in your body shouldn’t be in your garcinia cambogia supplement! Think titanium dioxide, silicon dioxide, and more.
It’s best to find a vegetable capsule. That means the capsule is based on plant proteins—not weird animal byproducts like “gelatin”.
3 Things to Look For in a
Garcinia Supplement that WORKS…
1. A Legitimate Product That Has A Chance Of Doing What You Want.
The studies showed that only supplements with the highest amounts of hydroxycitric acid (HCA) produced results1. And, HCA with potassium should be used to improve bioavailability2. But there should be NO added calcium2. The dose should be 500mg twice daily, 20-30 minutes before meals5. Anything else will not produce the results you expect.
The product we recommend is HCA65™. It contains:
A full 65% HCA (the ONLY product we can find with 3rd party verification of correct HCA level)...
Potassium for added absorption
NO added calcium!
2. A Company With A Proven Track Record
How long has the company been in business? What's their rating with the BBB? Do they sell other products, or did they spring up just to cash in on this latest fad? Do they send the product out for 3rd party testing to verify the label claims?
Here at Rag Tag Health, the answers are: Since 2008. We've maintained an A rating with the BBB that covers not just this site, but everything owned by our parent company, JJSmith Group, Inc. (That means EVERYTHING we do meets a high standard.)
We also have stellar ratings from Google Checkout and Shopper Approved - both independent 3rd party sites you can verify in the links at the bottom of this page. And we have a full catalogue of higher quality products to help you take control of your health.
All of our products are sent out for 3rd party lab testing before they are sold. If they don't pass, they're rejected.
<--You can find the lab results on the supplement we recommend—HCA65™--from a third party lab here.

3. A Guarantee That Shows Confidence in Their Product
The truth is natural products work differently for everyone. We believe if ANY garcinia cambogia product is going to work for you, it will be the one we recommend. We've put a lot of research into making sure of it.
But if it doesn't, what happens then? If you bought from us, you have nothing to worry about. You have an entire year to return your empty bottles for a full refund - no hoops to jump through, no questions asked.
Most of our competitors want you to call in for an RMA number (probably so they can talk you out of the return) and quite a few will only accept returns of unopened bottles. What kind of guarantee is that?? ... not a guarantee we'd want to trust in!
So, What Should You Do Now?
First, go get the HCA65™ 3-Pack. (the 3-Pack is a better deal). Not only does it meet all the above requirements, it's also gluten-free and certified vegetarian.
Second, plan to take 2 capsules per day, one before breakfast and one before dinner. Yes — that's the amount shown to be most effective in the studies. This is a full 30-day supply at that dose.
Third, be prepared for the difference!
