  • Full spectrum garcinia cambogia to support weight management

  • A 5:1 extract of this traditional Indian herb

  • Delivers 80 mg garcinia cambogia per capsule

Garcinia cambogia contains hydroxycitric acid (HCA), which can help support a healthy weight. Garcinia is a plant native to Asia, Australia, southern Africa and Polynesia. Its fruits have been eaten by local populations for centuries. It has also been used to give flavor to culinary dishes. Each capsule delivers 80 mg garcinia cambogia.



Q: How much hydroxycitric acid (HCA) is in this product?

A: With full spectrum of whole herbs, we do not specify a particular amount of HCA or assay for it. HCA will be present as a natural component of Garcinia, but concentration will vary in each batch with variations in growing conditions, time of harvest and other similar factors. 

Q: What does the 5 to 1 ratio mean?

A: This is another form of extract as opposed to a percentage of a particular component like milk thistle and its active ingredient 80% silymarin. In this case, 80 mg of a 5:1 concentrate is equivalent to 400 mg of full spectrum Garcinia. Here's an analogy: frozen orange juice has to be diluted up to a single strength juice with additional parts of water. The full-spectrum equivalent of Garcinia is not standardized to the HCA content and will vary with the strength of the original full-spectrum herb.

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 74 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Less intense as the other comparison I hadn't tried this product before buying it off Swanson and I was curious because of how many health benefits I have heard about it. I wanted to try it more for energy than appetite control but it helps a lot with eating out of boredom which is something I struggle with. Depending how sensitive your system is to caffeine and stimulants this might either be perfect for you or not strong enough. I didn't realize that they have another one that is 500mg with 90 tablets for $14.99 and is buy o get one free right now. I think the concentration might be different because of his one having the "5:1" ratio. Regardless this product has worked great for me and it doesn't get me edgy or give me the jitters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product; Great value This product really works if you watch calorie intake seriously and exercise regularly. December 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Production date is not new The date of production is not new, and if the date of production is new, that would be better. The price is relatively cheap. December 15, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Did nothing.. 22 year old female, healthy, average figure. I gained 10 pounds after college so I starting taking this in conjunction with the Swanson Best Weight-Control Formulas Double-Strength Apple Cider Vinegar as well as watching my calories. I noticed nothing in the two months I took it. No change in appetite or energy. No weight loss. I love Swanson and vitamins but this one just did nothing for my body. July 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well priced These are very inexpensive and they work June 21, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointed. I was taking the Garcinia Cambogia 400mg which I loved and is no longer sold. This product did not work for me at all. February 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I was very pleased with this product and am still using it,have loss 1/2 the weight I was looking to drop .Haven't had any shakes taking it. Thank you Swanson products. January 28, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by I have concerns about this supplement I have always been happy with supplements from Swanson Vitamins, so I did not think to look too closely at this newer product. I have been taking it for about a week, so it is probably too early to observe any substantive results. I just read up a little more on garcinia cambogia, and now I am puzzled. The general recommendation seems to be for a capsule or tablet that contains at least 1500 mg. of the active ingredient, at least 50% HCA (hydroxycitric acid), no fillers, and possibly added calcium and potassium. The product I ordered does not seem to meet any of these requirements! It is said to contain 80 mg (of what?) The meaning of "5:1" is not at all clear to me, although maybe I missed an explanation somewhere. It would really be helpful if Swanson Vitamins would explain in detail what this product actually consists of and why it does not (at least to the lay, non-nutritionist reader, and at the recommended dosage) appear to offer the minimum amount of HCA considered effective. I'm starting to wonder if I'd do better to incorporate some tamarind in my cooking! October 4, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Maintenance I am using this to maintain an overall well shaped figure for a 53 year old. After less than a month, I do not believe however that it has curbed my appetite but I am not gaining weight amid a very insatiable appetite. September 4, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not strong enough to do anything. Unfortunately I saw no difference with this product. I originally got it because it is cheap. You get what you pay for right? But after some research I'm thinking maybe doubling up and taking 4 pills a day Instid of two. With that I might see more difference. (If you check the milligrams on this and one from Naturwise or the more expensive one on here. The milligrams and dosage seem to be the only difference. August 5, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Tried it for a couple of months I tried this product in combination with several other Swanson products that they recommend for weight loss and did not find it helpful. I like Swanson's products and recommendations in general July 13, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Didn't have any effects This product had absolutely no effect whatsoever. June 24, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by ISN'T WORKING Been takeing this for about 6 months & it has not worked at All ... June 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Garcinia Cambogia 5:1 Extract This is one of my few “Loosing some weight by killing my cravings” pills that has worked for me, so far I’ve lost over 30 pounds. I take 1 pill at a time, keeping it in my system so I don’t have cravings that is hard to control, I use so food is not on my mind all the time. It’s important to take the pills when they will do you the most good, this I keep in my system in my waking hours so I am loosing weight slow, safe but sure so 2-3 pounds a week is about right for me. Being a great cook does not help but now I can cook anything, and only enjoy a few tasty bites. June 17, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not for dieting I have gained 10 lbs and 2 inches on my waste in two months with this. Don't touch this product to lose weight or inches April 21, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by I've been using this for a 2 months and have not noticed much change. Will keep it up for another couple but I don't think this works fast. April 15, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by garcinia cambogia I wish Swanson would come back with their 400mg Garcinia Cambogia. It worked GREAT. This works, but you have to take a lot more. March 4, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Too Soon to Tell Got this for my wife, at her request. However she has been using it only a very short time, so we really cannot comment yet on its quality, efficacy, or our satisfaction. However, as this product is currently in vogue, I CAN say the price at Swanson's is far, far superior to any other brand of Garcinia Cambogia. If it works well, I will be back to update this review. But it is definitely a less expensive option when compared to any other brand. February 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by it works! i use this as part of my supplement regimen and it works great to keep me on track and to make better choices. won't be without it! February 14, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Dr OZ's Recommendations I purchased a 6 month quantity of the two products "guaranteed by Dr OZ to provide weight reduction WITHOUT exercise or change of eating habits. My wife and I took the dosage noted and CONTINUED with daily exercise and watching calories. We expected a lot more weight loss. Weight loss was what was expected WITHOUT taking the pills. Have continued with the exercise and eating regimen and NO pills and the weight loss remains the same. February 11, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Doesn't work... Tried it for 3 months with no results. After doing more research, for this product to be effective it needs to have at least 60% HCA and requires a recommended dosage of 1500 mg daily. While the price is great, it obviously doesn't have enough HCA to be effective. February 8, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not for me.... Sorry the very first time in 30 years I tried a Swanson Product and did not see any results. February 4, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Should have paid better attention. I heard about Garcinia Cambogia from Dr. Oz like I'm sure many others had. My mistake was not listening clearly to what strength would be effective the first time. I listened and thought I'll just see if Swanson has it, they are generally cheaper. It is here, but while Dr. Oz recommended 800 - 1000 mg twice daily, what I bought here was only 80 mg. I'd finish a bottle in short time if I took the recommended amount. I ended up buying the stronger caps for a lot more money. I kept what I got from Swanson because I didn't want to deal with mailing it back. Pay attention to what you are looking for. February 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by it works This Garcinia is pure not mixed with anything, therefore it works, since I began taking it 3 weeks ago or so, I have lost 3 pounds, and have no appetite, I take two pills in the morning and that is it, I am going to have my boyfriend take it also February 3, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by No results Took as directed but it did absolutely nothing. I might as well have taken a placebo. Returned product. January 31, 2014
