Coming in at a close 2nd place, was LiveWell Labs. The company has been around for a while and has a great online reputation with a large community. Test results were solid as the brand does contain everything it claims. The only issue we found were customer reports of products taking between 7-10 days to be delivered, fueling slightly lower star ratings from users.
INGREDIENTS & EFFECTIVENESS
LiveWell Labs Garcinia Cambogia supplement meets a respectable daily dosage of 1600 mg, with added potassium to assist with absorption. This was the same dosage used in the clinical studies performed on Garcinia cambogia. In this case we believe it's a good thing. Sticking to a proven dosage as opposed to tweaking or adding to the formula is a safer bet.
LiveWell Labs came in at a close second as far as online opinion. We were surprised to find two supplement brands come in with an average rating over four stars. That doesn't happen often. Some online reviews spoke of helpful newsletters and tips and when we ordered our bottle, we were welcomed to be a part of LiveWell's online community; which at this point basically means you get exercise tips, special offers, and discounts occasionally. Not bad. When we called to test their customer service, it took us around five minutes to get through but we finally got to speak to a courteous customer service representative that took the time to answer our pre-written questions.
As we mentioned in our main article, some of the Garcinia Cambogia products on the market include unnecessary ingredients, like chromium, magnesium stearate, and silicon dioxide that act as fillers. While these ingredients aren't inherently dangerous on their own, they can potentially cause unwanted side effects.
With little regulation in the supplement industry, it is important to be aware of what you put in your body, especially when dieting.
LiveWell Labs Garcinia Cambogia passed testing for all claimed ingredients, HCA and potassium, and does not contain any unnecessary ingredients. It is free of contaminants, heavy metals, and other bacteria and toxins.
Garcinia Cambogia isn't known to interact with other medications or medical conditions, especially when the ingredients only include HCA extract, and potassium.
A strong product guarantee is one of the most important factors when determining which product to purchase and which brand you can trust. When we checked LiveWell's guarantee 6 months ago, they had a pretty solid 90-day money back guarantee. This time around it looks like they upgraded to a full one-year guarantee. This could be due to competition like Essential Elements that give a one-year guarantee with all of their products. Either way, it is a positive move for the consumer and we commend them for that.
LiveWell Labs came in very close to first place. They continue to be among the leading Garcinia brands due to their solid formula, customer service, and satisfaction among users. We might just see them at first place next month, but in the meantime, they'll have to settle for #2.
