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

          I lift weights for one hour 3 days per week. I walk on the treadmill 1 hour 2 days a week. I am in very good shape.. BUT I CONSTANTLY OVER EAT. I do this because I am always hungry. This stuff makes you NOT hungry and you do not think about food. I have been on it 4 days and I have lost 7 pounds. MUST DRINK WATER. 3 8 oz a day is always good.... 5 is better

            I bought this product being unsure it would work. IT DID! I took the product as label says. I also used the lean shake 25 once a day (lunch), and walked 1 mile most days. Total loss in 3 months 28lbs. May of lost more if worked out. Over all this is a great product.

            I'am a cyclist and I ride between 60 to 100 miles a week. I've changed my diet and stopped eating fast foods. I thought this would help with belly fat. I have used this product for about 3 months and no results. I'am a 54 year old male and eat salads and foods not high in processed sugar and have stayed away from cakes and all other goodies.This must not be the product Dr.Oz spoke of. If it is it does not work.

                I thought this product would work but it didn't. It should have the rind in it and it would work better. I wasted my money and still have a full bottle. I didn't like the fact that it was a pill instead of a capsule which would've made it easier to go down. I do not recommend it and will never buy it again.
