What You Should Know
Goji Active is a weight loss supplement that capitalizes on the Goji Berry for its angle to customers. Goji berries are healthy for you, but do they really play such a major role in the ability to burn fat, suppress the appetite and lose weight? Is this product worth the investment or simply just another gimmick on the market? We will take a closer look at the ingredients to see if there is any value to customers.
List Of Ingredients
Goji Active contains: Chromium (as polynictoinate) Green Tea Extract (EGCG), Caffeine, Goji Berry, and L-Theanine. Other Ingredients: Gelatin, Magnesium Stearate, and Cellulose.
The Goji Berry is native to the Southeast Asia area and has been used in Chinese medicine for many years. This formula claims to be able to help boost energy levels, promote weight loss, improve circulation, boost the immune system to help battle sickness, and help get more antioxidants into your system to fight free radical cell damage. The Chromium in the formula helps stabilize blood sugar levels to prevent food cravings, while the Green Tea and Caffeine will produce a thermogenic or fat burning effect by slightly elevating the body temperature. The Goji Berry doesn’t serve any weight loss purpose but provides nutrient value. The benefits of the Goji berry have not been scientifically proven.
- Green Tea is a known fat burner.
- The product promotes an active program which takes into account regular exercise and a balanced diet for more effective weight loss.
- Goji Active does not contain enough Green Tea to be an effective fat burner. The formula contains 225mg per serving, while the recommended daily serving for effectiveness is 1000mg. Even taking the supplement as directed, twice daily, only gives about half that.
- Since the product contains enough caffeine to bother sleep patterns, it is not recommended to use other caffeine based products while using this supplement.
- Those who are sensitive to caffeine and other stimulants should not take this supplement within five hours of bedtime to avoid side effects.
- There is a refund policy, however, to qualify, the bottles must be unopened, and there is a $10 restocking fee applied, and shipping and handling is not refunded.
- The free trial bottle requires users to enroll in an automatic shipment program.
The Goji Active product seems to be a gimmick. Though Green Tea is in the formula and there are health benefits, we know there is not enough Green Tea to be effective. Nothing about the Goji Berry suggests weight loss. Though we like the fact that the product promotes a healthy balanced diet with exercise and increased water intake, we believe you can get better results combining those principles with a different, more effective weight loss product.
