And round we go again…Pure Tilt Garcinia is yet another scam of a supplement beset with scams. And the sales page links (I tried them all) don’t even go to a Garcinia Cambogia supplement—they all go to a page for a different supplement, called Forskolin, by the same “company.” Which ends up being copyrighted as something called “Pure” – until I opened up the Terms and Conditions. Lo and behold, our old friend Nutra Support. So you know what’s coming. 
yet another scam of a supplement beset with scams.
The Pure Tilt Garcinia page lists no ingredients other than a 60 percent concentration of HCA (hydroxycitric acid, the active ingredient in G. cambogia), and no Supplement Facts sheet is offered. They go on and on in their wild claims, and offer you a trial bottle for just the cost of shipping and handling, which you still have to go to the terms and Conditions to find—in this case, $4.95. Then we get to the heart of this supposedly sweet deal:
Your membership starts off with a fee of $4.95 to enroll you in the program and receive your first 30 day supply. After that you will be billed $74.25 plus $4.95 shipping per month until you call customer service at 1-855-380-8794 to cancel your membership. We ship the product the day after you place your order (orders placed Saturday and Sunday will be shipped the following Monday). Please allow 2-5 business days for the order to arrive. If you wish to cancel your membership you will need to contact a customer service agent. 
If you’ve read my reviews at all, you know by now this is called “negative option marketing.” 
Pure Tilt Garcinia Claims
I think Nutra Pure must have a new marketing guy or something, because the last few of these pseudo-brands I’ve reviewed don’t just scream that G. cambogia is the next great miracle ingredient—they start by psyching you out almost completely and then scream that G. cambogia is the next great miracle ingredient.
We’ll be the first ones to admit that losing weight is difficult. It’s a task that takes a lot of time, a ton of dedication, and even more confidence. In order to effectively lose weight, you have to stay on task at all times. How can you do that with such a busy schedule? The answer comes in the form of a weight loss supplement—Pure Tilt Garcinia. This fat busting, appetite suppressing diet pill has the ability to streamline and assist your weight loss. This pill is perfect for those with a busy schedule, because it helps you lose weight even when you’re not exercising! Of course, you’ll still want to exercise occasionally for the best possible results.  (emphasis added)
“…I’ll admit, even though it’s a scam, they’ve got a shrewd writer.”
Specifically designed to destroy your confidence before you even start, so you’ll be desperate to buy their product. I’ll admit, even though it’s a scam, they’ve got a shrewd writer.
But the truth is, getting healthy and losing weight isn’t always a chore. Especially if you don’t make it one. Trade your morning donut at the Seven-Eleven for an apple—they’re right by the checkout counter. Add a low-fat chocolate milk if you have to have something really sweet. Take the stairs or park further out and walk. Two or three days a week can start to make a difference.
But then, of course, you wouldn’t need to buy this. Which is the whole point of the confidence-shearing marketing in the first place.
Pure Tilt Garcinia Ingredients
The only ingredient mentioned is G. cambogia, in an unknown amount of 60 percent concentration. If there are other ingredients (as many even above-board Garcinia supplements can have), they’re not mentioned.
From a scientific standpoint, G. cambogia isn’t a miracle pill.
The Science (or Lack Thereof) Behind Pure Tilt Garcinia
So the claims are overblown. But let’s leave the brand for the moment and look at some real science behind this little pumpkin-shaped fruit.
From a scientific standpoint, G. cambogia isn’t a miracle pill. It’s not a fat melter. It’s not speed for your metabolism. But it’s not entirely useless, either. Pure Tilt Garcinia gives no science to back up their incredible (seriously, not credible) claims, but there is science out there for one specific issue.
“…there is still little evidence to support the potential effectiveness and long-term benefits of G. Cambogia extracts.”
What G. cambogia does seem to be is a mild-to-moderate appetite suppressant as a result of HCA’s ability to stimulate production and release of serotonin, a neurotransmitter in our brains usually associated with “feeling good.” Serotonin can also send messages to our brains that we’re “full.”
A meta-study (review of all current literature for the purpose of a summary) published in the 2011 Journal of Obesity states
HCA is usually marketed as a weight loss supplement either alone or in combination with other supplements. Some authors have suggested that HCA causes weight loss by competitively inhibiting the enzyme adenosine triphosphates-citrate-lyase. HCA has also been reported to increase the release or availability of serotonin in the brain, thereby leading to appetite suppression. 
What many of the studies compiling this meta-review also found is a short-term effect for appetite suppression and some help with weight loss—though more as result of appetite suppression and not so much as a fat burner in its own right.
None of the studies have shown whether these effects persist beyond 12 weeks of intervention.
It might be called a fat inhibitor, though. In several studies HCA has been shown to inhibit an enzyme—ATP citrate lyase—whose primary purpose is to convert carbohydrates into fat. If I understand the science correctly, this is the result: by inhibiting this enzyme, the carbs apparently stay carbs and get burned before any stored fat gets burned (the body always burns carbs first). So while that does nothing for weight loss—you still have to reach the point where the body has no carbs left to burn before it starts burning fat—it might help in preventing further weight gain. 
But even this conclusion has a few issues left to resolve.
None of [the studies reviewed] have shown whether these effects persist beyond 12 weeks of intervention. Therefore, there is still little evidence to support the potential effectiveness and long-term benefits of G. Cambogia extracts.  (emphasis added)
“…This is Fraud, pure and simple. I was charged on my credit card twice for the sample. I only received 1 set.”
G. cambogia did come under fire in 2009 when the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) identified the consumption of an HCA-containing supplement as a possible cause of liver damage. But several studies have indicated that HCA itself, and thus G. cambogia, may not be the culprit. Dr. Sidney J. Stohs, Pharmacy PhD from the University of Nebraska, and colleagues reported that while some cases of toxicity and specifically liver damage had been associated to the consumption of this brand of products, it was premature to blame HCA for that damage; mainly because some of the products tested did not contain HCA, but did contain up to 20 other ingredients. So while HCA might be involved, there was no conclusive evidence of such.   
Other studies, by Dr. Stohs and others, suggest that a moderate dosage of G. cambogia (HCA) by itself—with no other added ingredients—is safe, barring other pre-existing health problems: the maximum daily safe dosage was determined as 2800 mg/day (I assume 60% concentration, the most common concentration used in supplements, but the abstract didn’t specify). Of course, research is ongoing.   
Word On The Street About Pure Tilt Garcinia
There isn’t any, unless you go to the comments section of other review sites. Then you get an earful. From the Supplement Police review comments section (though, amazingly, SP gave it a favorable review):
Don’t even sign-up for free trial. They will add other products to your order without your knowledge and charge your credit card.
“Renee Plata” (2017): “Misleading!!!! Apparently, my two week trial was over in 5/28, I noticed my credit card charged on 5/30. I was not aware of the trial period, therefore was charged $79.94. They have no leeway and would not refund. Plus, if your suppose to see results in 4-6 weeks, what the hell good is a two week trial. Don’t fall for it.” 
“Zan” (2017): “This is Fraud, pure and simple. I was charged on my credit card twice for the sample. I only received 1 set. I was charged 2 weeks later for a full order that I have not received, 2 months later. The product is also worthless and their claims are absolutely false. It is simply a placebo. Dishonest company. Dishonest employees. Worthless product. SCAM!! Run!!” 
And “R. A.” (2016): “This is a Rip-Off company trying to scam people out of their hard-earned money. Don’t even sign-up for free trial. They will add other products to your order without your knowledge and charge your credit card. Then, they will not honor your request to cancel the order–oooh, it’s already shipped. Then refuse to issue credit for items not ordered. SCAM all around.”
All in all…RUN.
The Bottom Line: Is Pure Tilt Garcinia Worth A Try?
Definitely not. Scam, pure and simple. You can walk into Walgreens and find a single-ingredient 60 percent HCA G. cambogia supplement in a 100-count pack for less than $20. Or look on Amazon or in any number of supplement/drug/department stores, though most of them do add at the very least potassium. Just be aware with the multi-ingredient supplements, as most of the side effects do show up there. But run far, far away from Pure Tilt.
