HCG Platinum X30 Plus Review
What You Should Know
HCG Platinum X30 Plus is a weight loss liquid with a small amount of vitamin B12 and African mango. There has been a lot of media attention on African mango with support from celebrity doctor Mehmet Oz. The formula contains a few other ingredients that lead us to believe the supplement is designed for women, but these ingredients do not increase weight loss or suppress appetite, so there is really no need for them in HCG Platinum X30 Plus. HCG stands for human chorionic gonadotropin; a pregnancy hormone. There are no clinical studies supporting weight loss claims when HCG is taken as part of a diet and exercise program.
List of Ingredients

- African Mango Seed Extract

There are a number of clinical trials proving weight loss and fat loss when African mango is used as part of a controlled study. The study included 102 participants – half in the control group and half in the active group. The active group was given 150 mg of African mango twice daily. The active group consumed about 2,700 calories per day, on average. The control group consumed about 3,100 calories per day, on average. At the conclusion of the study the active group lost more weight than the control group, but the active group also consumed fewer calories, which could have contributed to the weight loss. HCG Platinum X30 Plus does contain 150 mg of African mango.
We were happy to find caffeine and green tea in the supplement. There is no indication how much of each is included, but we do know the two ingredients are part of a proprietary blend of 240 mg. There are other ingredients in the blend accounting for some of the weight, including black cohosh, dong quai, wild yam and chaste tree berry. None of the other ingredients promote weight loss.
- Ingredients are listed online.
- There are clinical studies supporting African mango in weight loss.
- Contains caffeine and green tea.
- The dieter is not given the total amount for caffeine and green tea.
HCG Platinum X30 Plus may promote weight loss, but there are some issues with the formula that leave us wondering just how much support the dieter will receive. There is no indication HCG is included in the formula. We have no idea how much of the two best ingredients are included in the formula – a huge oversight by the company.
