Frequently Asked Questions

What is Garcinia Cambogia?
Garcinia Cambogia is a herb that is useful in weight loss and body shape optimization. If you were to enter the term into a search engine, you would get over a million web pages on the topic. Let’s cut through the advertisements and go to a trusted source of consumer information: Dr. Oz for a short introduction video to GC, view video on the Burn+Control Coffee page of this site.

Why does Javita Burn + Control have Garcinia Cambogia in it?
If you consume Garcinia Cambogia ten to thirty minutes before eating, you will reach satiety sooner than you would otherwise and you will therefore eat less. Less calorie consumption typically translates into weight loss for most people.

Garcinia Cambogia also helps block an enzyme that turns carbohydrates into fat. Instead the carbohydrates are used as energy. This has a noticeable impact on weight loss for most people and a big impact on changing body shape since you put on lean muscle instead of fat. Many times people report losing inches around their waist while consuming Javita Burn + Control Coffee but their weight stayed the same or slightly increased. This is because lean muscle weights much more than fat but takes up less space.

Is all Garcinia Cambogia the same?
Garcinia Cambogia is a herb that is useful in weight loss and body shape optimization. For an herb to be effective it must be a variety of that herb that has proper amounts and quality of the active ingredient – HCA (hydroxycitric acid). The herb must be grown in the proper soils and temperature and sun conditions and the extraction of the active ingredient has to be done properly otherwise you end up with an extract of Garcinia Cambogia that is useless for weight loss.

That is why many people try other Garcinia Cambogia capsules and products and get no weight loss or appetite reduction benefits. Most manufacturers and marketers use cheaply sourced and cheaply made product that does not have an effective dose or effective type of Garcinia Cambogia extract. Javita Burn + Control Coffee has the highest grade and best extraction of Garcinia Cambogia and thousands of testimonials attest to the effectiveness of this product.

Who should drink Javita?
All adults can enjoy the energy and weight loss benefits of Javita. If you are a coffee drinker you will probably be surprised at the rich, non-bitter flavor of Javita which is unusual for instant coffees. We do not recommend Javita for children (persons under age 16), pregnant women or women that are breast feeding their infants due to the herbal content.

How much Javita can I drink
Your body will tell you when you have had enough Javita because of the caffeine and theobromine in Javita. Some people are very sensitive to caffeine and may need to limit their Javita to 1/2 a packet until their body gets used to it. Many people have been drinking coffee for years and can drink three or four cups of Javita and not feel “buzzed”. Weight loss is achieved by most people drinking just one cup of Javita a day.

How often should I drink Javita Burn & Control to lose weight?
It is important that you drink Burn & Control once a day. The effects of the Yerba Mate up-regulating the metabolism are cumulative and when you skip drinking a cup a day you are slowing and possibly stopping the beneficial increase in your metabolism. Many people make Burn & Control an important part of their weight loss program and drink it twice or three times a day, depending on their body’s tolerance and reaction to caffeine and theobromine. Caffeine and theobromine tolerance typically increase over time.

Will my body shape change?
Yes. As your metabolism increases and the fat burning & blocking effects of Javita Burn & Control take hold, you will notice parts of your body getting smaller and love handles slowly disappearing. Be patient, some people see rapid weight loss, then over the course of 6 to 10 weeks they see their body shape improving. Other people do not see appreciable weight loss in their first 4 to 6 weeks but notice their body slimming down or some body parts getting smaller. Women frequently see their rear end, hips and thighs reducing and sometimes their breasts too. Men usually see the belly decrease which is extremely important because most of the time that belly fat is inside the abdomen and around the organs. That type of fat is the most dangerous type of fat.

How long will the effects last?
As long as you continue drinking the Burn & Control. If you achieve your target weight and stop drinking it, your body’s metabolism will slowly return to the previous level and it is likely your weight will slowly increase unless you increase your exercising and control diet.

Is caffeine bad for you?
The latest studies indicate caffeine is GOOD for you, just don’t over consume it. A handful of old studies that said caffeine was bad or caused brittle bones have been re-examined and found to be flawed studies. The latest studies indicate moderate consumption of caffeine (up to 3 cups of coffee per day) has many health benefits. A recent article at: Dr. Mercola – Mounting Evidence Suggests Coffee May Actually Have Therapeutic Health Benefits

Will the caffeine and theobromine in Burn & Control make me shake or feel buzzed?
Compared to normal caffeinated drinks like tea and coffee, people say Burn & Control gives a better and smoother energy. It is possible the theobromine “buffers” the caffeine and that explains the smoother energy with no crash.

Is theobromine a safe ingredient?
Yes, theobromine is considered safe and is possibly the safest and best metabolic stimulant available. It is all natural and has consumed for thousands of years. People over 40 years of age can feel similar energy to when they were in their 20’s and 30’s and resulting increase in metabolic activity means more calories are being burned by their body even if they are lying on a couch watching TV.

Does Javita Burn & Control have sugar or artificial sweeteners in it?
No, we do not use sugar, sucralose or aspartame in any Javita product. The health community universally condemns “energy drinks” including Red Bull, Monster and those from network marketing companies because of their very high amounts of sugar, typically 18 grams per serving (4 teaspoons) and usually much more. The sugar free energy drinks use artificial sweeteners like sucralose or aspartame which are regarded as metabolic poisons by most health experts.

Does Javita Burn & Control have either guarana or taurine which are the stimulant ingredients in most energy drinks?
Javita’s metabolic stimulant is a unique mixture of caffeine from the coffee and yerba mate and theobromine from the yerba mate. Most people who are sensitive to caffeine do not get shakes, jitters, buzz or an energy crash from Burn & Control. Instead they get smooth, even energy that slowly diminishes. We do not use guarana which has a very harsh and high concentration of caffeine in it and has been implicated in health problems. We also do not use taurine, an amino acid that can have negative health effects when used in the quantity and form used in most energy drinks.

Is chromium picolinate a safe supplement and why is it not in Javita’s weight loss coffee?
Chromium picolinate is considered safe but many scientists and health experts are not convinced. There have been laboratory studies indicating DNA damage can result from consumption of chromium picolinate and use of chromium picolinate by companies formulating products for body builders and weight loss does not lend safety credibility to it.

How much weight can I lose and when?
Every person’s body, diet, nutritional uptake and physical activity is different. We cannot predict how much weight you will lose or when you will lose it. The average weight loss is 8 to 10 lbs per month and the weight loss ranges from 5 lbs per month to over 20 lbs per month. Your body may respond primarily to the increase in metabolic rate by burning more calories or respond to the fat blocking mechanism or to appetite suppression. If at least one cup of Javita is consumed daily we typically see weight loss begin by the end of the first week and weight loss accelerates for the next couple of weeks due to the increasing metabolic rate.

Does everybody lose weight?
Yes, eventually everybody loses weight when consuming one cup a day of Javita Burn & Control coffee. In order not to lose weight, you would have to increase the volume and caloric content of the food you eat or change your lifestyle, i.e.- become more sedentary or stop physical activities or exercise routines. Even then, most people report no weight gain as their metabolic “set point” has been raised by the Yerba Mate and their body consumes more calories which offsets the negative changes in their lifestyle.

When does the weight loss stop?
The Yerba Mate helps your body’s metabolic rate to increase and your body will establish a new “set point” for your weight. Once your body reaches that “set point” your weight typically stabilizes and to continue to lose weight you would need to increase your physical activity or decrease the calories you are consuming or both. Some people reach their new “set point” in a couple of months and some continue to lose weight for many months, there are too many variables to give you a better answer.

I don’t feel hungry when I take Javita, should I skip meals?
Skipping meals is a bad idea because your body will start hoarding food and store more fat. This is a hard-wired mammalian response that is beyond your control. It is better to eat multiple small meals throughout the day, optimally eating something every 4 hours, just don’t make it high caloric or sugary.

I sometimes feel a little dizzy when I drink 2 cups of Burn and Control coffee?
Typically we find that people drinking multiple cups of Burn and Control tend to skip meals which can result in low blood sugar. Make sure you eat some decent snacks every 4 hours, especially if you are skipping meals. Also, consult a nutritionist or doctor if you have questions about dietary suplements or vitamins.

Can I lose too much weight?
Your body will establish a balance point as your metabolism stabilizes at a higher level and as your fat stores decrease. Most “fit” people and athletes who drink Javita appreciate the additional energy and endurance and have not found excessive weight loss to be a concern. It is easy to increase your food consumption and regulate the balance of fats, carbs and protein you consume if you feel that you don’t want to lose any more weight.
