At MuscleTech®, our team is passionate about supplements. Our mission is to develop the most scientifically advanced and effective supplements to help you build muscle and strength, lose weight, and improve athletic performance. Thanks to our millions of loyal customers, we are fortunate to be the best-selling sports nutrition brand over the past 20 years. Many supplement companies do not disclose their ingredients, or demonstrate a commitment to constant innovation. We are different. MuscleTech® invests heavily in product research and development, and quality control – and our supplement facts always tell you EXACTLY what you are getting.

MuscleTech® is the Leader in Bodybuilding – A portion of every dollar spent on MuscleTech® supplements is allocated toward scientific research to discover new and more effective ways to increase lean muscle and strength, and improve athletic performance. In fact, Team MuscleTech® has collaborated with researchers at over20 universities and research facilities around the world to study the various key ingredients found in our powerful formulas.

Platinum Garcinia Plus – Garcinia is a superfruit native to India and Southeast Asia that's been used for centuries. Platinum Garcinia Plus contains 1.56g of Garcinia cambogia per serving – three times more than you'll find in some other brands.

Lose Weight with Green Coffee – What's more, Platinum Garcinia Plus also supplies a scientifically studied dose of green coffee standardized for 45% chlorogenic acids. In one scientific study, test subjects using the same dose of standardized green coffee in our product lost, on average, 10.95 lbs. in 60 days vs. the placebo group, who lost only 5.4 lbs. Both groups followed a low-calorie diet. In a separate 8-week study, subjects lost an average of 3.7 lbs. vs. the placebo, who lost an average of only 1.25 lbs. Both groups followed a calorie-reduced diet and performed moderate exercise.

Health Notes

Garcinia cambogia

Garcinia cambogia
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Obesity
Dose: Refer to label instructions
HCA may aid in weight loss by suppressing appetite and by reducing the conversion of carbohydrates into stored fat.(more)
Obesity
Dose: Refer to label instructions(-)-Hydroxycitric acid (HCA), extracted from the rind of the Garcinia cambogia fruit grown in Southeast Asia, has a chemical composition similar to that of citric acid (the primary acid in oranges and other citrus fruits). Preliminary studies in animals suggest that HCA may be a useful weight-loss aid.1, 2 HCA has been demonstrated in the laboratory (but not yet in clinical trials with people) to reduce the conversion of carbohydrates into stored fat by inhibiting certain enzyme processes.3, 4 Animal research indicates that HCA suppresses appetite and induces weight loss.5, 6, 7, 8 However, a double-blind trial found that people who took 1,500 mg per day of HCA while eating a low-calorie diet for 12 weeks lost no more weight than those taking a placebo.9 A double-blind trial of Garcinia cambogia (2.4 grams of dry extract, containing 50% hydroxycitric acid) found that the extract did not increase energy expenditure; it was therefore concluded that this extract showed little potential for the treatment of obesity at this amount.10 Nonetheless, another double-blind trial found that using the same amount of Garciniacambogia extract significantly improved the results of a weight-loss diet, even though the amount of food intake was not affected.11

          from Oakland, CA, United States

          Comments about MuscleTech™ Platinum Garcinia Plus:

          Received this as a free sample. After use for about a month, I'd say its not that bad. To be honest, I've used garcinia cambogia products in the past with little results from them. The green coffee is a nice addition. Good product, good value, but not my favorite.

          Get shredded!

          from Bethlehem, GA, United States

          Comments about MuscleTech™ Platinum Garcinia Plus:

          This was a totally new product for me that I received as a sample. Looking into this product and competitive products on the market, there are a few notable differences. MuscleTech has included Green Tea and looks to have more servings per bottle than other products in the same price range! I also like that this is a non stimulant formula. This product has helped me to get shredded and stay there!

          Comments about MuscleTech™ Platinum Garcinia Plus:

          I got this as a Muscle Tech Field Representative and have been using it the past few weeks and have seen great results! Don't leave the pills in your mouth too long because it does leave a bitter after taste but why wouldn't you have water by your side when taking this anyway? Haha, it's priced competitively as well! I can't wait to get more.

          I received Platinum Garcinia as a sample and it provides more servings per bottle than any other garcinia product on the market. It also contains green coffee which no other product on the market offers.
