I was referred to use this dietary supplement as an addition to my weight loss efforts. After two months of consistent daily use, at 1600 mg; I did not notice any benefits or changes whatsoever. There was no effect to my appetite, nor my metabolism. I didn't even receive an increase in my overall energy. I was informed that this product at maximum strength, combined with its' patented "Super Citrimax" would increase my weight loss results greatly. I was misinformed obviously. The product did no such thing. I have since discontinued Garcinia Cambogia, having considered it a complete waste of money. I found that I have better results with a high quality, easily soluble multivitamin regime instead. I would not recommend this product to anyone for any reason. There is a reason why all relative statements and claims have not been evaluated by the FDA apparently.
