Bombay Green is presented as a way to simplify the decision making process when choosing a green coffee bean extract. But how can you really tell if this is the one you should go with, and if you’ll get the results from it that you’re seeking?
Green coffee bean extract is of course a natural source, and is therefore preferred by dieters over other weight loss pills and supplements that contain chemicals and other manmade stimulants that can have plenty of adverse side effects. We did a full write up on whether or not green coffee bean extract itself works, so be sure to check it out.
The makers of Bombay Green say that they’re using green coffee bean from India, and that their formula includes 850mg per day. They say that it helps your body block the sugar that you consume, and at the same time it’s able to boost your metabolism so that you’re burning more fat. They say it is made up of 50% chlorogenic acid, which reduces the absorption of fat and further boosts your metabolism. They say if you’re worried that you’ll get caffeine jitters like you do from coffee you won’t get them from this because it’s jitter-free.
They’re right, green coffee bean extract is trending right now and has shown up on talk shows as being an all natural way to lose weight. That’s why you have to be careful not to get swept up in the craze and make purchases you later regret.
They have a 2 for 1 offer on Bombay Green which means that the original sales price of $10 gets two $7 shipping charges on it and the total cost comes to $24. They’re including a $15 voucher for a purchase of another As Seen on TV product, which is designed to offset the cost, but really just entices you to make another purchase.
The main draw to these pills and any others claiming effortless weight loss is the effortless part. Who wants to diet and workout when you can simply take a pill? Nobody! But what we’re seeing across the board is that the only pills that work without diet and lifestyle changes are the ones that provide negative side effects and end up getting pulled from shelves. You’re expected to commit to at least changing your diet and getting a little more exercise, and that’s when diet pills show the best results, as a supplement rather than the main reason.
This is the first time that we’ve seen a supplement get quoted by the day, usually it will say how much is in each pill, or how much is in each serving if you need to take multiple pills. Either way, Dr. Oz recommended taking 400mg capsules three times per day so there doesn’t seem to be a way you can do this with these pills, you’d either be getting too little or too much.
While green coffee beans have been studied and evaluated, we’re left in the dark as to whether Bombay Green itself works. Were any studies performed on its effectiveness? No testimonials are provided, and no sort of authentication of the ingredients is shown, so we’re left taking the word of a corporation that you’re actually getting what is claimed to be in it. When you compare this with competing products you’ll see that there is a big difference, and other products will provide you with FDA inspected facilities, and a detailed ingredients list.
Final Bombay Green Review
Bombay Green is getting our Thumbs Down rating, due to a lack of transparency on the ingredients, and a cookie-cutter FAQ page that doesn’t answer any of the most pressing questions that a person would have when considering buying a weight loss supplement. Important questions like what exactly is in it, how many pills are required each day, and what sort of facility are the pills made in. Also, they refer to studies in the infomercial but do not cite these studies or provide links to them for further evaluation.
They noted that there are many green coffee bean extracts to choose from, and that’s a good thing because we’re recommending going with a brand that puts all of their cards on the table and provides the details you need to make an informed decision. This is a classic example of a company riding on the hype of a new weight loss trend and hoping to cash in. On top of all of that they’ve set this up so that if you try it and don’t like it and try to get a refund you’ll only be getting $10 back and you’ll be out $14 plus return shipping costs. All of the risk is on you, and that doesn’t sit well with us.
