I paused before I hit the “publish” button on this one, because my conclusion was a bit of a shocker. Super CitriMax caught our attention recently with its fat-burning claims. We decided to take a look at the ingredients, side effects, clinical studies and customer support. Then we picked apart hundreds of dieter reviews on the product. Here’s a condensed and summarized version to give you the info you need.
What is Super CitriMax?
First off, Super CitriMax ingredients include hydroxycitric acid 40-64%, potassium and calcium. The formula supposedly promotes weight-loss by suppressing appetite, reducing caloric intake and enhancing mood. The recommended serving varies by brand. One benefit is that it’s easy to use.
Super CitriMax is a patented form of garcinia cambogia extract from InterHealth Nutraceuticals. The company has been in business for nearly 30 years. It’s available in health stores and through online retailers. We like that it’s affordable and contains some natural ingredients, but read on…
Efficacy – “Does it Work?”
The first concern we have with Super CitriMax ingredients is its efficacy. “If you ingest up to 6 capsules of Super CitriMax per day, you expect to lose fat,” said our Research Editor, “but many users claim that the pills don’t do anything for them.”
“Does not do anything,” said one user.
“Supposed to help me lose weight, but it did not do that at all.” said another.
Side Effects–”Another Concern”
Concerns reported by customers on the web include Super CitriMax side effects. “I took this product as suggested and it provided no benefit as far as I could tell, it did however seem to give me a stomach ache,” said one customer online.
“I took for a few days and experienced a really bad headache. Stopped for about 1 week, and started taking again and headaches returned,” said another.
Our research shows that even one non-desirable trait in a product, such as adverse reactions, can limit long-term success. If Super CitriMax does induce headaches and cause other problems for customers, that could be a big problem.
The Science – “Clinical Backing?”
There is some clinical research pointing to success for some Super CitriMax ingredients. The problem is that the results were measured when individuals also used gymnema sylvestre and chromium. What’s also missing are the long-term effects of using this particular ingredient as a stand-alone supplement. At DietSpotlight, we like seeing science used to support claims. But, if the details to tell the whole story, we start to have concerns.
The Bottom Line – Does Super CitriMax Work?
So, here’s the final take on Super CitriMax. We like the longevity of the company and the low price, but we’re concerned because there’s no direct connection to long-term weight-loss. We became a bit skeptical due to the possibility of side effects and the lack of results reported by customers.
If you want to see substantial results from a fat burning product, we suggest you look for one that uses cutting-edge ingredients and has been clinically studied.
Among the best products we’ve seen in 2016 is one called Leptigen. It blends four different high-powered ingredients to help burn fat and boost metabolism. The formula has been clinically proven and we can’t find any word of adverse side effects. The reviews, from dieters on the web, also point to great success.
The makers of Leptigen are offering a Special Trial Offer to anyone interested in the product, and that is always a good sign.
