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

Comments about PRO NUTRA PRO-NUTRA Ultra Concentrated Garcinia:

I am an average person. I go to work for 8-12hrs sitting at a desk and always eating the "office goodies". By the time I get home, I have enough energy to eat and sleep. Then I repeat it all again the next day. My max weight was 320lbs. That is not where I wanted to be, but found it hard to get motivated and had no energy. I read about Garcinia and decided to give it a try. All I do is take one pill every morning and that's it. As I said, I didn't have the energy to do any exercise. 6 weeks later, I am down 20 lbs by doing nothing but taking one pill a day. Losing 20 lbs has made a huge difference cause now I do have energy and have added exercise into my routine. I no longer eat the "office goodies". I have read other reviews and as we are all different, we all won't get the same results. For me this works! It makes me feel full, so I don't eat as much as I did. I can turn down the junk food and rich pastas(which I really love). The only thing I caution is that if it makes you feel full, you will not want to eat. NOT EATING AT ALL IS NOT GOOD! I went two days before I realized I hadn't eaten anything. I was not hungry, but I know my body needs the nutrition to function better. So if you do take this and it makes you feel full, try to eat at least one sensible meal a day.

      Comments about PRO NUTRA PRO-NUTRA Ultra Concentrated Garcinia:

      I am not normally a skeptic.....I had high hopes for this product. I've been on it a couple weeks now and have not lost any additional weight outside of what my lifestyle would normally allow. I get up at 5AM and exercise 4-6 times a week, follow my structured eating plan and drink 80-100 ounces of water per day. I do like it says and take one after exercising. I'm losing what I should anyway, without adding this supplement. I haven't really noticed a decrease in my appetite either. Perhaps smaller doses throughout the day may be more effective.....not sure. Maybe I need to give it more time. I'm just not all that impressed. From what I've read, the pounds should be melting off. LOL

        Comments about PRO NUTRA PRO-NUTRA Ultra Concentrated Garcinia:

        After about 2 years of using this product, my weight is down about 13 pounds. This product is not meant to "whiz" pounds off, but does help take it off slowly, steady and pounds stay off. Just now people are noticing the change in my body, i.e., hips smaller, etc. Would not go one morning without taking this..

          Comments about PRO NUTRA PRO-NUTRA Ultra Concentrated Garcinia:

          I take this with my vitamin at breakfast and love the result. I took it to help with weight loss (along with a Dr. supervised weight loss plan) and it did help me but the exciting part for me was I found I could think more clearly than I had for a very long time. My energy level was normal rather than wanting to sleep during the day and I slept better at night. I went through two bottles and reached half my weight loss goal (lost 40 lb. so far). I ran out and quit taking this one for several weeks now and I am back to buy it again because I'm not sleeping as well, my energy is forced and again I'm searching for the words I'm trying to say during conversations, not thinking as clearly. I don't know that it claims to help any of that but I'm just sharing how it helps me. 42yr female.

              Comments about PRO NUTRA PRO-NUTRA Ultra Concentrated Garcinia:

              I originally bought this because of the other benefits like mood enhancement and energy, which this product provided. I did change my eating to eliminate as much processed food as possible, but my exercise habits did not change. I exercise 5-6 times a week for an hour each day. However the quality as far as energy improved. I did lose 15 pounds in the 2 months i took it. I took 1 pill every morning when i took my multivitamin. I attribute my weight loss to a combination of things, not just this supplement. There is no "magic pill" to help you lose weight, you need to make a commitment to changing your lifestyle. The pill that was promoted on Dr Oz you take garcinia in combination with a cleanse. The results are more impressive with that because you are losing a ton of water weight as you would expect to do using any cleanse. I would recommend this product. It worked for what my initial purposes were for. If you're looking for a silver bullet to help you lose weight and keep it off, the only silver bullet lies with inside you.

                  OK you have read the comments that say waste of time and money well now read the truth. There is no magic pill on the market. This pill helps you control your appetite and cravings. It helps your body not store as much fat. If you use this with some common sense and eat healthier you will lose weight. I have lost 4 pounds in a week by making a commitment to eat better and with the help of this pill I do not snack as much. Please don't blame this product for your lack of commitment to a healthier lifestyle. It took time to put the weight on and it will take time to get it off. stay focused on a goal and use the SUPPLEMENTS as a help to achieve your goals.

                      Not sure who I'm more disappointed in: the product or the GNC rep who strongly recommended this junk. Used it for 2 weeks. First week I used as directed. Second week I upped the dose. I also modified my diet...after 2 weeks, 0 pounds loss. ZERO! Not only am I not going to use this product, I may not go back to GNC...

                        This product is a definite waste of money. I used it for 30 days and not one pound nor one inch was lost. This garbage should be pulled off the shelves as the price is ridiculously high. There is no truth about this product and will not recommend no one to waste their hard earned money on it!!!
