Inperform Garcinia Cambogia Facts

  • Company address is a mailbox in Texas
  • No customer service department
  • Each bottle contains 60 capsules (1 month’s supply)

InPerformance Garcinia Cambogia is a diet pill that that comes with the advice “Don’t quit, commit to get fit. Let us give you your dream body!”

This is a big statement but Garcinia Cambogia does come with some big claims and is one of the most hyped supplement ingredients around today.

Garcinia Cambogia is a fruit similar to a tamarind, which grows in Asia. It has a sour flavour and is often used in Asian cuisine. However there are some extraordinary claims made about this ingredient for weight loss that have really got everyone excited.

InPerformance Garcinia Cambogia contains Garcinia Cambogia extract as its principle ingredient – there is 1000mg in each serving. In addition, it contains small amounts of chromium and potassium –two minerals that the body needs only in trace amounts for health.

According to the InPerformance advertising, this supplement is a weight loss solution that:

  • Increases Metabolism
  • Suppresses Appetite
  • Increases Energy Levels

The InPerformance website is not very glossy. It does not look like the work of a major company, rather more like an eBay advert with its old fashioned font style, spelling mistakes and prominent PayPal buy it now button.

The company sell only this one product and this combined with a total lack of company information does not make this supplement look very reputable.

The before and after pictures of customers are a matter for concern and a prominent “after “ picture looks as if the model is suffering from anorexia – she seems way beyond fashionably thin”. We are not sure if it is even the same person in both photographs.

What is good about the InPerformance advertising is the company’s Instagram page, which provides plenty of fun advice and appealing pictures.

To take InPerformance Garcinia Cambogia

Use as a dietary supplement and take 1 capsule twice a day. For best the best results take 20-30 minutes before a meal with an 8 ounce glass of water

InPerformance are the distributors of this supplement and not the manufacturers. According to a logo on the website, this supplement is made in the USA and conforms to GMP (good manufacturing practice) but there are no details.

InPerformance are based in Texas and give their address as a PO Box in San Antonio.

There is no customer service phone number and you can only contact them by email. They promise to reply within 24 hours. Not much good if you want an instant reply!

Garcinia Cambogia

Garcinia cambogiaAccording to some health experts Garcinia can reduce appetite and help you lose weight without effort. This is because of the high levels of hydroxycitric acid contained in the plants skin which helps burn fat plus it is supposed to have an effect of raising your serotonin levels.

The rise of Garcinia Cambogia can be traced back to TV health expert Dr Oz who featured this ingredient on his prime time US TV show. He described it as “magic” and as the “Holy Grail of Weight Loss” and said it would help you lose weight without any effort.

Unsurprisingly, this created a craze for Garcinia Cambogia supplements and companies, many like this one, sprang up practically overnight to jump on this bandwagon.

Although Dr Oz was strongly criticised by the Senate for making unproven claims, his public telling off got nowhere near as much publicity as his claims about various “miracle” ingredients.

You can see more about the “Dr OZ effect” in our earlier investigation.

Inperform Garcinia Cambogia Concerns:

  • Some of the advertising seems questionable. Are those before and after pictures genuine?
  • No customer feedback. Has anyone even tried this supplement?
  • Garcinia Cambogia has been overhyped. It will not work for weight loss in the way described

What Does Inperform Garcinia Cambogia Claim To Do?

According to the product information,

Our Garcinia Cambogia is proven to help people of all ages, sizes, and fitness levels.

According to the product information, Garcinia has the following benefits:

  • Weight Loss
  • Blocks Fat (Reduces Belly Fat)
  • Suppresses Appetite (Diminishes Sugar Cravings)
  • Detoxifies Your Body
  • Increases Metabolism
  • Increases Energy Levels
  • Mood Enhancer, Relieves the Body of Stress
  • Enhances Sleeping Patterns and Mood
  • Strengthens the Immune System
  • Reduces Cholesterol and Blood Pressure

In addition:

Many obese or overweight individuals have experienced exceptional, breathtaking and stupendous results within just a few weeks or months

None of these claims are proven for Garcinia and statements such as “detoxifies your body” have no relevance for this ingredient.

Neither is there is any customer feedback. If people really had experienced “stupendous results”, they would have been keen to share their story.

So What Is Inperform Garcinia Cambogia and What Are The Ingredients?

InPerformance Garcinia Cambogia is a diet pill based on this one active ingredient.

Serving size is two capsules and quantities here are in two capsule serving.

  • Calcium Carbonate (50mg): Form of calcium naturally obtained from rocks and used in industry for a variety of purposes. It is a food additive often in toothpaste, used as a cheap calcium supplement and as an antacid.
    Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calcium_carbonate
  • Potassium Chloride (50mg): Potassium is a vital mineral in the body and easily obtainable by diet. No need to take potassium supplements unless recommended to do so by your doctor.
    Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potassium_chloride
  • Chromium (200mcg): Chromium is a trace mineral so the body requires very little. It may help improve the way the body uses insulin. It may be effective as a treatment for diabetes but requires further testing. Can be dangerous in excess
  • Garcinia Cambogia Extract Complex (1000mg): The active part of Garcinia Cambogia is Hydroxycitric acid (HCA) and according to the product information, this makes up 60% of the content, which means that there is 600mg of HCA per dose. This substance is supposed to block fat and suppress the appetite.

    According to studies on rats, HCA inhibits an enzyme which produces fat, called Citrate Lyase making it hard for the body to produce fat from carbohydrates. Other animal studies show that HCA increases serotonin levels so may lead to reduced appetite and food cravings.

    The downside is that these promising results have not been seen in clinical tests carried out on humans and although its supporters claim that Garcinia Cambogia decreases belly fat and helps increase lean muscle mass there is no human evidence.

    The most extensive human test was carried out on 135 obese subjects and had promising beginnings but concluded:

    Garcinia Cambogia failed to produce significant weight loss and fat mass loss beyond that observed with placebo.

    Other smaller tests have shown the same.

So What Does All This Mean?

With the proof that Garcinia Cambogia works looking flimsy, there does not seem to be much point to taking this supplement. All of the facts and figures and benefits for Garcinia have been either invented, based on wishful thinking or have been taken from animal testing results.

When Dr Oz endorsed this ingredient, he did so in early days of clinical testing and he was too fast to say that it worked. In truth, it looked promising on animal testing but has yet to be properly tested for efficacy in humans.

Some people will benefit from a placebo effect and if you used this supplement as part of a new regime of weight loss and fitness, you may find that it helps a little, if only to give some structure to your diet plans.

Does Inperform Garcinia Cambogia Have Any Side Effects?

Garcinia Cambogia is a fruit extract so seems fairly safe but it may cause some mild side effects. The HCA content may cause a burning sensation. Other side effects include:

  • Nausea
  • Headache
  • Digestive tract discomfort
  • Skin rash

Caution:
Avoid if pregnant or breast feeding. Check with your doctor first if you have a medical condition or are taking prescription medication.

One of the problems with Garcinia supplements is that this ingredient has not been tested for long-term safety or side effects so as with all supplements it is probably best to use for a limited period. If you do experience side effects, cease taking.

Any Inperform Garcinia Cambogia Reviews From Customers?

We were unable to find any independent customer reviews for InPerformance Garcinia Cambogia. Some people have “liked” some of the pictures on the company’s Instagram page and there are a lot of before and after pictures. The problem is that they all appear to have been posted by InPerformance so cannot be classed as independent.

So Does Inperform Garcinia Cambogia Work?

We think it is highly unlikely to work. The principle ingredient does not come with any true evidence that it causes weight loss in humans in any way that could be described as consistent. True it has performed well in animal testing but this does not seem to have crossed over into human use.

According to the Journal of Obesity, Garcinia may generate some weight loss initially but the effect is so small it is not significantly proven.

In one test on 60 overweight subjects, the conclusion was;

Garcinia Cambogia failed to produce significant weight loss and fat mass loss

Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9820262

A major review of all the Garcinia clinical trials highlighted numerous problems relating to the testing conditions and accuracy of results.

The conclusion was that if Garcinia does anything at all for weightloss “the magnitude of this effect is small”.

Watchdog Verdict

InPerformance Garcinia Cambogia does not have the look of a premium supplement. Instead it seems like an attempt to cash in on the Garcinia Cambogia bandwagon and following Dr Oz’s TV show, hundreds of so called supplement companies sprang up from nowhere all offering the same thing! This looks like one of them.

It is likely that InPerformance have taken an existing Garcinia supplement and have simply changed the label and rebranded it. There is zero information about the company, no contact details and no real information about where this product is made.

Garcinia Cambogia does not have much going for it either, beyond a lot of hype. The clinical evidence is that it probably ineffective and if it does do anything at all, the results are so borderline it is hard to tell the difference between Garcinia and the placebo. All of the promising results have been achieved by tests carried out on small animals, not humans.

We like the InPerformance Instagram page but are not as keen on the so-called customer before and after pictures. In addition, if these were real we would have expected to see some customer feedback.

It is an easy decision. This supplement is just not good enough to add to our approved list so we have no other choice than to reject Inperform Garcinia Cambogia.

    I purchase of this “company” in October was told shipping was completed to be sent to new Zealand 3 days after.. end of November the item was apparantly ready to be collected from the new Zealand post shop. New Zealand may be small but there is two islands and plenty of courier companies and post shops through out I questioned via email as it wasn’t clear and asked to be reimbursed after I got told that the item being at a new Zealand post shop was enough and wasn’t a problem? I checked the same link for the postage sent and it seems that now the item is back in Texas. Between their email saying they had supplied sufficient info on collection being new Zealand post office to today I have had no communication and now the item is back in Texas. I believe by the email that was sent it is a scam and I have argued the pay pal charge as a fraudulent charge backed up with their unprofessional emailing and customer service processes. I would not recommend these people or these pills.
