Don’t waste your time and money trying the new weight loss pill Caldoxin because it is a pathetic scam! In this review I’m not just going to expose this product for what it is, but I’m also going to expose a scam empire of fake weight loss pills and fake review sites!
Caldoxin was created in January 2016 by a company called Sun City Research Group LLC. It claims to be the ‘new natural alternative to gastric bypass surgery.’ According to the information on the official website, Caldoxin helped the unnamed creator of the product to shed an astonishing 106 pounds in just 3 months. Yeah that’s right. 106 pounds in 3 months!
So how did this unnamed creator (let’s call him Dave) achieve this result? Last year he allegedly stumbled upon a research by an unnamed Viennese doctor who, after 14 years, found out the reason why some people eat much and gain little weight, while others eat less but still gain ‘pound after pound of ugly fat.’ Dave never tells us this reason, but goes on to say that he applied the doctor’s theory and bam … the more he ate, the more weight he lost.
How Caldoxin Works
Caldoxin allegedly contains an ‘X14 Formula.’ This formula purportedly contains ‘a combination of all natural acidic and plant extracts’ taken from ‘roots and plants found in uninhabited rainforests, jungles, mountain tops and preserves around the world.’ We are further told that the manufacturers went as far as ‘from the peaks of Mount Everest to the deep dark origins of the Amazon’ to get the ‘most powerful and effective weight loss ingredients’ for the formula.
Funny enough, we are never told anything about the ingredients constituting the X14 formula. Instead, the Indian plant Coleus Forskohlii is mentioned. This plant contains Forskolin, which has been found to increase the levels of the enzyme cAMP (cyclic adenosine monophosphate). A study found that this Forskolin has little effect in causing weight loss in humans, but has the potential for maintaining weight after weight loss. [NCBI].
That being said, let’s go to the reasons why Caldoxin is a scam:
1. Sun City Research Group LLC is A Shady Company
Caldoxin is supposedly marketed by Sun City Research Group LLC, located at the address 3848 Sun City Center Blvd. Suite 104 Ruskin, FL 33573. Well I checked the address using Google Maps, and discovered that it is the address of The Mailbox Store!
Here, take a look.
The above information was taken from the Terms and Conditions page of Caldoxin website. However when you do a Google search for this company, you will discover that it was registered in February 2016 with the address 625 West Lumsden Roa1 Brandon, FL 33511. Well I checked again using Google Maps, only to discover that it is the address of a real estate company and a financial corporation. These firms share the same building, which is located in a residential area.
Again, take a look.
It gets worse from here.
2. ENTIRE Scam Empire Exposed!
Sun City Research Group and the Caldoxin website domain was registered by a dude called Damien Carapella. With this name, I did a reverse Who.is search and the result? I exposed the entire scam empire of this guy!
Damien Carapella has registered 28 website domains since 2013. Here they are (with month and year of creation):
- HealthResearchSolutions.com (April 2013)
- ResearchSafeDietFormulas.com (March 2014)
- StubbornFatLoss.com (March 2014)
- TheUltimateDietPill.com (March 2014)
- Dexatol27.com (June 2014)
- Dexatol27.biz ( February 2015)
- Dexatol27.info ( February 2015)
- Dexatol27.net (February 2015)
- Dexatol27.us (February 2015)
- Caldoxin.info (January 2016)
- Caldoxin.com ( January 2016)
- CaldoxinReviews.com (March 2016)
- Alzaphen.net ( July 2016)
- AlzaphenSideScam.com (July 2016)
- AlzaphenSideEffects.com (July 2016)
- AlzaphenReviews.com (July 2016)
- Alzaphen.info (July 2016)
- MillcoResearch.com (April 2016)
- UnitedFitnessScience.com ( April 2016)
- SunFithealth.com (April 2016)
- WellnessFitScience.com (April 2016)
- FitHealthScience.com (April 2016)
- SunCoastScience.com (April 2016)
- USAFitnessScience.com (April 2016)
- Caldoxin.net (January 2016)
- CentralHealthScience.com (April 2016)
- CaldoxinSideEffects.com (March 2016)
- CencalFitScience.com (April 2016)
So as you can see, this Damien Carapella is marketing three fake weight loss pills (Caldoxin, Dexatol, Alzaphen) and is using fake review sites to generate sales.
Wait … there is more:
- Dexatol is supposedly produced by a company called Health Research Solutions with the address 235 Apollo Beach Blvd. suite 329, Apollo Beach, FL 33572. I checked this address, and it is a business/shopping center.
- Alzaphen is produced by the company Health Research Systems LLC, which has the same address as Health Research Solutions.
So what does this tell you? Damien Carapella is selling fake weight loss pills under two company names with fake addresses!
3. Fake Testimonials With Paid Actors, Stolen Photos
I have every reason to believe that the Facebook testimonial videos were done by paid actors. Caldoxin has a Facebook page, where they try to give the impression that they care about their customers. In the comments of one of the testimonial videos, one user asked why there was no before-after photos and Caldoxin replied, ‘No, it’s a video of someone giving a review…’ Translation: That woman may have never used the product!
To put the final nail to the coffin, a Contra Health Scam reader did her own investigation and sent me this report:
This is a weight-loss supplement that seems too good to be true. Some things I find in its favor are:
* Its price. It is way less than other advertised supplements
* No auto-ship
* Customer service that answers all my dumb questions (via Facebook chat, I’ve never tried to call)
Things that alert me to scammy-ness:
* Pics used on Facebook profiles have been used in other weight-loss “testimonies”. I have double-checked many of them on Google Images
* When I message “clients” to see if it works and ask if they’re for real or not, their profile mysteriously disappears, or I get blocked from it.
* I’ve only found one person who is for real and said she ordered it but hasn’t seen any results.
I’ve verified her findings as authentic. However, if you still have doubts, then feel free to go through these fake Facebook testimonials and confirm for yourself.
Final Recommendation: DON’T BUY Caldoxin. It is A SCAM!
Please know that it is impossible to lose over 100 pounds in 90 days. The only time this may happen is when you are suffering from grave diseases like full-blown AIDS. So don’t fall for all these weight loss programs that claim such results.
Alternatives to Caldoxin
Alternatives to Caldoxin that I recommend include the following:
1. Organic Total Body Reboot by Thomas DeLauer (useful if your weight gain is caused by chronic inflammation – read review for details)
2. 21-Day Sugar Detox by Diane Sanfilippo (useful if your weight gain is caused by bad food cravings – read review for details)
I don’t guarantee that these products will work for everyone, but they are legit weight loss programs worth checking out. Please use them under the supervision of a medical doctor for best results.
