Hydroxycitric Acid Update
On May 1, 2009 the FDA issued a warning to consumers to stop taking Hydroxycut-branded products. Over more than 7 years they have received 23 reports of health related issues with those taking Hydroxycut-branded products. The main health concern appears to be serious liver-related problems. Iovate Health Sciences Inc., the makers of Hydroxcut, have voluntarily recalled all of the products under question in the FDA’s report
Common symptoms of liver complications include:
- jaundice (yellowing of the skin)
- brown urine
- light colored stools
- unusual tiredness
- stomach pain
- loss of appetite
In light of the recent FDA warning concerning the possible dangers of Hydroxycut-branded diet pills, many believe that the associated health risks are likely due to the inclusion of the commonly used ingredient Hydroxycitric Acid, or HCA. And while according to the FDA, “The agency has not yet determined which ingredients, dosages, or other health-related factors may be associated with risks related to these Hydroxycut products. The products contain a variety of ingredients and herbal extracts.” you can never be too cautious.
So, while further study and research is needed to confirm the link between HCA and the liver problems, until proven otherwise any products that contain HCA are no longer recommended on this website.

Garcinia Cambogia has been proven to contribute to weight loss. However, since JavaFit Diet Plus fails to list how much garcinia cambogia it includes, it is impossible for this JavaFit Diet Plus review to determine if there is enough garcinia cambogia to contribute to weight loss.
Advantra-Z contains synephrine, which has been proven to contribute to weight loss. When it comes to synephrine, the important thing is the concentration–the higher the better. JavaFit Diet Plus fails to list the concentration of synephrine it contains.
Extra Caffeine (1 mg) Caffeine has been shown to contribute to weight loss. However, 1 mg isn’t going to do much.
JavaFit Diet Plus Cost

For real weight loss results, look for a diet pill that includes proven ingredients in sufficient amounts.
