Nuvagenic Review

Nuvagenic Facts

  • Available in most countries
  • Marketed outside the US by British company Down Range Ltd
  • Contains popular superfruits such as African Mango and Acai Berry

NuvaGenic is a fairly new diet pill and appears to be the only diet supplement in the range. The website is glossy with lots of bikini-clad women showing off their toned tanned and thin bodies and there are supposedly genuine customer testimonials with before and after pictures.

Advertised as having been created following research at the University of Yaoundé (Cameroon) it promises to help you lose around 8lbs per month when taken in combination with a diet and exercise plan. African mango seeds are a popular ingredient in many health supplements so this diet pill looks pretty much like lots of other products on the market that can help support modest weight loss.

You are advised to take the pills twice daily and combine them with a healthy exercise and dieting plan but there is no guarantee offered to dissatisfied customers.

There have been numerous complaints about NuvaGenic. Many customers have not received their supplements and have been unable to contact the company.

NuvaGenic do not provide much company information and it is not clear where this diet pill is made. The company appear to sell all over the world, possibly with agents located in each country but it seems likely that all shipping is sent from the US.

NuvaGenic is shown as being part of Down Range Ltd a British company founded in April 2011. Further investigation shows that this business is currently listed as a non-trading company. This seems high questionable because NuvaGenic has a world wide web presence. Downs Ltd is situated in a residential area in Hertfordshire.

Nuvagenic Concerns:

  • Lack of a full ingredient profile
  • High amount of negative customer response due to non delivery of merchandise
  • No feedback or independent reviews

What Does Nuvagenic Claim To Do?

NuvaGenic claims help you “build the body of your dreams” and the four key benefits said to:

Nuvagenic web

The advertising claims that the pills have optimum ingredients and are recommended by the doctor. For added proof, there is picture of a doctor in a white coat holding a bottle of pills; however, he looks like an actor to us and is most likely a stock image.

NuvaGenic is also said to be recommended by users across the country regarding its results. Despite this, we have been unable to find any genuine positive feedback for the supplement.

So What Is Nuvagenic and What Are The Ingredients For Nuvagenic?

NuvaGenic is a diet pill that contains African mango seeds plus four other ingredients. These look good but amounts are not stated so you do not really know how effective this supplement will be.

Although the ingredients have all undergone clinical trials for weight loss it is important to note that this diet supplement has not been clinically tested or proven. Yes, there are some good ingredients but will they work for weight loss in this form? The lack of contents information is a cause for concern despite the unrelated clinical trials carried out on the various substances used in the supplement.

  • African Mango Seeds: Believed to regulate the hormone leptin responsible for managing the appetite and metabolism. Research carried out on obese subjects in Cameroon using African mango seeds in their natural form found that it did help reduce obesity and research urged that this natural ingredient should be part of the daily diet in this country. Taking African mango seed in tablet form was not tested and researchers believed that the high fibre content of the seeds in natural form played a major role in the weight loss.
  • Acai Berry Fruit: Brazilian Superfood fruit with high levels of antioxidants with proven health benefits in helping to minimise free radical cell damage. Also believed to increase the metabolism.
  • Green Tea Extract: Antioxidant rich substance believed to increase the metabolism and fat burning function. Green tea has undergone extensive clinical research into its role in weight loss. Although results look promising, but depends on the amounts and type used. Green tea extract also contains high levels of caffeine.
  • Caffeine Anhydrous: Caffeine powder in concentrate form that acts as a stimulant and will give you added energy. However, it can cause side effects of restlessness, the jitters, mood swings and other caffeine side effects.
  • Pomegranate: Natural anti-inflammatory that contains ascorbic acid (vitamin C) .Everyone knows that vitamin C is important for health and is vital for health so this is a good ingredient, although you could probably get the same effect from eating more fruit and vegetables.

These ingredients all have proven health benefits and can promote weight loss. However, the contents are not specified so it is unknown whether the doses are sufficient to create any effect at all.

So What Does All This Mean?

NuvaGenic may have all the right sounding ingredients but this does not make it a great diet supplement. There is a lack of clinical proof and very minimal contents information, which are both major causes for concern. This diet pill has not been tested and there is little independent information available about it.

NuvaGenic is shipped from the US making it inconvenient for international customers who may believe that their shipment will be sent from their home country.

The website provides very little real information and the contact details are not easy to locate.

Does Nuvagenic Have Any Side Effects?

We think that NuvaGenic looks pretty safe but there could be a high level of caffeine which will not suit everyone.

High caffeine will give you added energy and may make you feel more lively but there can be side effects. Restlessness, sleep disturbances, the jitters, increased heart beat, mood swings and headaches are all common caffeine side effects.

Caution: You should avoid if pregnant or breast-feeding or if you have any type of blood pressure or heart condition due to the caffeine content.

Any Nuvagenic Reviews From Customers?

There is very little independent customer feedback about NuvaGenic. Sadly, the most common feedback is that customers are still waiting for their supplements to arrive. Many dissatisfied customers feel that they have been victim of a scam.

A high number of customers from around the world have not received their supplements. There is a string of complaints about NuvaGenic, which makes this diet supplement company look decidedly dodgy.

The testimonials on the website do not look genuine and although there is response on the NuvaGenic Facebook page most of the positive comments seem to have been written by the same person under different names. There is a lot of negative response on Facebook due to the no show of the product. This supplement is not available from an independent websites such as Amazon or other popular UK retail outlets. NuvaGenic is only available from the product website, which makes it hard to evaluate true customer response.

So Does Nuvagenic Work?

NuvaGenic may help you lose weight. It may not. It recommends that you combine with a healthy diet and exercise plan and the weight loss claims are actually fairly modest once you get behind the hype.

Average weight loss is supposed to be 8lbs within a month so at 2lbs a week is perfectly do able, even without a supplement! The caffeine may help your energy levels and the other ingredients do not seem harmful. The individual ingredients have undergone clinical trials with positive results for health and weight loss.

The big problem is that you will really have no idea of how much of the active ingredient you will be taking. If this diet supplement really worked as well as advertised, it would have been tested. Showing a picture of a doctor on the website is not the same as clinical proof.

The other major problem with NuvaGenic is that whether or not it works, many customers have been unable to try it. There is a real issue with delivery and many customers simply have paid their money but received nothing in return. Five negative responses left on the Facebook page on the same day in different languages, show this is a real ongoing problem.

Where Can I Buy Nuvagenic?

You can only buy NuvaGenic direct from the website or via the company’s Facebook page. It is not in the High Street shops or available from online retailers such as Amazon, Boots or Evolution Slimming.

It is expensive when taking the cost of shipping into account. One month’s supply of 30 tablets costs £34.00 plus an added £8.50 for shipping and 65p insurance making a total of £43.15.

If you buy three bottles of pills, you get three free. Total cost for this deal is £108.85.
You are urged to buy in larger amounts because the “risk of running out of stock” for this deal is low. By contrast, the “risk of running out of stock” on the smaller order is High!

What About A Guarantee

There is no money back guarantee on offer. You can return goods damaged by shipping but you will have to contact the company in advance for a Return Merchandize Number. The company will not refund for goods marked return to sender and will not reimburse you for your shipping costs. You send at your own expense and are advised to send insured. You cannot return goods due to customer dissatisfaction or because it does not work.

Watchdog Verdict

NuvaGenic appears to be an overpriced dieting supplement that does not even have a customer guarantee. The ingredients look good but the contents are not specified and it looks as if this company has jumped on the weight loss bandwagon and invented a product that says all the right things but provides no proof.

There is a strong possibility that your shipment will arrive late or not at all and many customers think that NuvaGenic is a scam.

We’re not convinced by this supplement, there are simply too many red flags raised. With so many other supplements on the market at similar or cheaper prices we are compelled to reject Nuvagenic diet pills.

    I have placed order for this item they dont del i hv paid by cc and they dont response my email also…can u help me please

  2. Susmita says:

    Is there any way to get my money back

  3. Lory says:

    Nuvagenics pilla are only a trick to realize an international scam. After my order I never received my supplements and my money back.

  4. Kristie says:

    I received all my deliveries and am about to start taking them. I actually missed a delivery and emailed them so they sent me a whole new package for free then they all arrived on the same day so I have twice as much product ordered.

  5. Liz says:

    I ordered my in NZ just 1 week ago and received them today 7 days without any concerns. It states on the bottle they are made in the USA – not sure if this is helpful.

  6. Latte says:

    Ordered 1 set of Nuvagenic and 1 set of Solpria, as it was mentioned in the Nuvagenic website that Solpria helps to promote better weight loss results. All my orders arrived. However, I have received 2 sets of Solpria and was charged for this extra order, which I have NOT ordered. I tried calling their 24/7 customer service hotlines many many times; yet, it’s apparent that these lines are 24/7 UNATTENDED! Now I am beginning to wonder if these supplements are for real. It’s no longer my prime concern upon whether these supplements work, but whether they are safe to use at all. I doubt very much I could ever get my money back from the “extra” order, which I was not liable for!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    A scam, or not — it’s really up to you to determine……

  7. NELANIE says:

    I’ve placed an order for Nova Genic and Solpria 12/3/2013. Only received the Nova Genic at end of April, after I’ve send them a email and they actually replied to email with the apologies of delay because product has to be delivered to South- Africa. Still no Solpria. And in total I paid R 2368.37 (South African Rand). This was expensive “loss” and no weight loss. Rather stick to healthy eating and excerise

  8. Here's hoping says:

    I ordered my tablets early April, after 2 weeks I had not received anything. I was able to contact a telephone operator in Malaysia, and they said they would resend. I received all the tablets in the next couple of days. I am on day 4, so although I probably feel,their promise is to good to be true, will continue taking them. I have had no side effects. So will keep site updated.

  9. worried buyer says:

    hai,im from malaysia too. i’ve ordered my tablets 2 weeks ago and did’nt receive anything yet. i ordered it via cc. my questions to you are, how much did the company charge you. as mine, they charge me us84.60 or rm276…im just concern if the company will charge me with somethings else because it happend to one of my friend ….

  10. Here's hoping says:

    No they didn’t charge any additional charges, just look on the Internet & call the Malaysian number. Will keep you informed as to weight loss, now one week, maybe have lost a little. This second week will tell if they are for real or not.

    • kalaivani says:

      I have got mine (Nuvagenic) awaiting for the Solpria.
      Dont judge negatively very fast.
      for resons such as
      -Mailing takes time.
      -too many orders- takes time to go thru to handle.

      so call,
      not at peak hour or at midnight (their time)

      You will get your questions answered.

  11. Unsatisfied says:

    I received my order and have been taking 2 x tablets each morning for 3 weeks. No side effects and no weight loss. Thinking this is a scam… If anything I have put on a little weight. I haven’t felt it has curbed my appetite at all. Very unsatisfied with this product but will continue for another couple of weeks, paid for them so may as well consume them.

    • Here's hoping says:

      Hi, I would have to agree with you, has not worked at all. Have now done for 2 weeks. Old saying, if it is too good to be true, it probably is.
      IF you want to lose weight the old fashioned way, my mothers old diet, The Beverley Hills diet, by Judy Mazel, does work, as long as you don’t cheat. Good luck.

  12. Trying out says:

    Hi I’m from Malaysia too. I ordered one nuvagenic and one solpria just to rest the products. I received after 2 weeks from the order date. I did emailed them when I did not receive it on time. And they replied my email after one day.
    Finally I have my nuvagenic and also solpria.
    I eat nuvagenic after lunch only once a day. And i ate solpria once and the next day I have sudden knee swell. So i stopped taking solpria.
    Currently taking one nuvagenic a day for only 5 days per week. I had lost 2kg in 2 weeks. I’ve been exercising and also eating lesser fats.

  13. bhagya says:

    i also had issues in receiving ordered quantity, there is point to understand , they dont send the product which we ordered , first i received only one bottle instead 3 , after mailing i got rest , what’s reason to take second chance…. also i have started 3 weeks ago no change in weight , still waiting to see hopeful results.

  14. juliet spieker says:

    I ordered my products on the 7june this year. To date only excuses no products
    I feel I have been scammed! People be careful. This seems to be a company that does not really excist. They take your money and you see no products. Be aware!

  15. wait to see says:

    hi, I am from Malaysia. I ordered the Solpria and NuvaGenic on the 1/6/2013, but only received on 16/7/2013 after several call and email. I had took two tablets of NuvaGenic and 1 tablet of Solpria a day and looking forward to see the result. But I did feel lively and not be able to sleep at night…

  16. Agnes says:
