Jana Skinny Water Review & Information
Water that makes you skinny? Yup, you heard it right. Or at least, that’s what Jana claims their Skinny Water product can do for you. Of course, water is a pretty good weight loss supplement all on its own, so one has to ask…
What makes “skinny water” so much more special than plain old H20?
One ingredient… SuperCitrimax™. SuperCitrimax™ is a supercharged version of HCA (HCA is hydroxycitric acid, or citrimax, which is reviewed here!) where the HCA is bonded to calcium and magnesium to increase potency and bioavailibility. Typically, HCA is derived from the garcinia cambogia plant.
Although real data is relatively hard to come by, one clinical study performed at Georgetown University Medical Center (1: Int J Clin Pharmacol Res. 2005;25(3):133-44 — you can review the details of the study here) showed that not only was SuperCitrimax™ effective, it significantly outperformed plain citrimax as a weight loss agent.
That’s good news, considering citrimax isn’t exactly a “home run” in the weight loss department. And while I’ve never been a huge fan of HCA, it certainly seems that this “SuperCitrimax™” version is the one to experiment with at this time.
And yes, there is plenty of SuperCitrimax™in Skinny Water. In fact, if you drink 3 bottles of Skinny Water a day, you’ll get about 2700 mg of hydroxycitric acid — an amount that’s on par with that found to be useful in the clinical trial.
The problem with Skinny Water is simply a practical one. It’s expensive — I found it online at Amazon.com for $32 (and that’s not including shipping, which will cost you and arm and a leg). Even if you buy it locally, it still doesn’t make any sense. SuperCitrimax™ is relatively cheap — I found it at BodyBuilding.com for under $13 for 90 750 mg servings. Skinny Water delivers 24 900 mg servings for $30. Hmmm… even if you factor in the cost of the water, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure it out…
If you’re interested in experimenting with Skinny Water, you’re much farther ahead to buy a case of “regular” water and a bottle of SuperCitrimax™ and go from there. You’ll save a minimum of $15 or so.
And of course…
Remember that studies demonstrating SuperCitrimax™’s effectiveness are in short supply — the one referenced above is the only one I know of at this time. So I caution you that it is not a miracle pill, and probably won’t do you a whole lot of good unless you make the appropriate changes to your diet and lifestyle.
