Is the Garcinia Cambogia Extract Really the Holy Grail of Weight Loss?

Garcinia Cambogia ExtractGarcinia Cambogia Extract Review and Full Recommendation

As anybody who watches television or is up to date on medical breakthroughs knows, Dr. Oz is one of the preeminent doctors leading the charge for healthier living. Dr. Oz’s unique mixture of scientific and medical knowledge, passion for helping others and ability to reach the masses makes him one of the most influential doctors in the world; when he talks, people listen.

So, what does that mean for Garcinia Cambogia Extract (HCA), something that Dr. Oz recently called “the Holy Grail for weight loss” on his popular television show? Does Garcinia Cambogia Extract really provide you with the results Dr. Oz claims it does? And where does it come from? What are the side effects? There are many questions like these and we’ll answer as many of them as we can for you here in this Garcinia Cambogia Extract review.

What is Garcinia Cambogia Extract?

Garcinia Cambogia Extract is a supplement that comes from the rind of the Garcinia Cambogia fruit (a small pumpkin-shaped fruit which is more widely known as a tamarind in many areas). The Garcinia Cambogia fruit has been around for a long, long time. People who live in regions where the Garcinia Cambogia fruit grows in its native environment have known about its health-giving benefits and have been safely enjoying them for centuries thanks to its compound called HCA or Hydroxycitric acid.

Why is Garcinia Cambogia Extract Gaining in Popularity Now?

Dr-Julie-ChenThe recent popularity of the Garcinia Cambogia Extract supplement can be ascribed to Dr. Julie Chen, a well-known and well-respected specialist dealing in health and wellness. Dr. Chen’s work with the Garcinia Cambogia Extract caught Dr. Oz’s eye, specifically the findings on how safe the Garcinia Cambogia Extract is.

Dr. Chen’s studies proved that those taking Garcinia Cambogia Extract lost two to three times more weight than those not taking the supplement. This equates to an average of ten pounds per month. What’s even more amazing is that they did this without changing their dietary habits or exercise routines. In essence, Garcinia Cambogia Extract just made the people involved in the studies lose weight while doing nothing.

Clinical studies: Below you can find an abstract of some of the clinical studies made on garcinia supplements:

They showed:

  • The positive effects of the extract on reducing body weight and preventing visceral fat accumulation.
  • Lowering critical factors such as LDL cholesterol (also called “bad cholesterol”), triglycerides and serum leptin.
  • Increasing the levels of HDL cholesterol ( “good cholesterol”) and serotonin (strong benefits on Depression, migraine and insomnia).
  • Garcinia was showing a good safety profile with no significant adverse effects across 8 weeks in one of the studies.

This both intrigued and captured Dr. Oz’s attention.

How the Garcinia Cambogia Extract Works to Help You Lose Weight

The Garcinia Cambogia Extract works as a dual action fat buster. The first principle the supplement works on is suppressing your appetite. Next, it actually prevents fat from being made. These two reasons were enough (combined with the Dr. Chen’s findings) to cause Dr. Oz to anoint Garcinia Cambogia Extract as The Holy Grail of Weight Loss.

Dr. Oz also pointed out that:

does-garcinia-cambogia-work• Garcinia Cambogia Extract acts as a fat blocker, meaning fat cells will not be permitted to form. This leaves the excess fat that you take in nowhere to store inside the body, meaning it passes through your system more rapidly.

• Works as an appetite suppressant, helping to control your cravings. This means you’ll feel less hungry and in turn, take in less excess fat; you’ll only eat as much as you need

• Works by decreasing your current amount of belly fat. It specifically zeros in on belly fat and helps to eliminate it.

• Helps emotional eaters because the supplement has been shown to cause an increase in serotonin levels. This helps to balance out mood swings and alleviate the symptoms of stress and depression. Those who “stress eat” or look for solace in food will not do so as much, two of the major causes of overeating and weight gain.

• Further, Garcinia Cambogia Extract manages the levels of Cortisol in your body, a hormone that is directly tied to stress levels.

Does Garcinia Cambogia Extract Work?

It’s difficult for anyone to fully trust any weight loss supplement on the market right now, specifically because there are too many people who have tried to cash in directly on people’s desperation, caring little if they provided real deal solutions that actually work.

Luckily, Garcinia Cambogia does not fall into the list of modern-day snake oil solutions – it is an effective dual action weight loss supplement that both turns your body into a fat burning furnace by suppressing your cravings for foods that will make you happy while at the same time stunting your body’s ability to produce unnecessary amounts of fat in the first place.

body-distributionThe Garcinia Cambogia has been clinically proven to change the biochemistry of your internal systems that are responsible for creating new fat cells, helping you to slow down and in many cases completely stop the process of adding more and more body fat in the process. This shuttles all of those components directly out of your body – pushing them quickly through your digestive system and out as waste faster than you could imagine.

Garcinia Cambogia is also a powerful diet suppressant and craving killer, helping you to control the portions that you eat while at the same time helping your body feel full so that you don’t snack as often as you could. This has a transformative effect throughout your body and your life, as Dr. Oz and so many other weight loss professionals have said that it’s not so much the foods we eat that are making us fat as much as it is the indiscriminate snacking we do all throughout the day.

Are all Garcinia Cambogia Extract Supplements the Same?

Now that you can be sure that it works, there is one more thing you need to know, something we just slightly touched on. There are tons of companies that are making Garcinia Cambogia Extract supplements and putting them up for sale. Dr. Oz stressed the importance of certain qualifications you need to look for when choosing a Garcinia Cambogia Extract supplement. They are:

• The name Garcinia Cambogia (HCA) is on the bottle

• Contains at least 50% HCA (hydroxycitric acid)

• Serving Dosage: 1000 MG

• No Fillers, Binders, or Artificial Ingredients

pure-label

All in all, if you’re ready to take your weight loss to the next level, Garcinia Cambogia can give you the distinct advantage you’ve been searching so desperately for. To find a very special offer on Pure Garcinia Cambogia, a supplement that is in-line with Dr. Oz personal recommendations and guidelines for choosing a Garcinia Cambogia Extract, click the link below.

        Your Stomach organ is the size of your fist. You probably are speaking about your abdominal region the belly where your intestines are located. The Stomach is above that area and the belly / abdomen is NOT the same as the Stomach. if you lose 3.5 inches in your stomach there won’t be much of the Stomach remaining

      I started taking this about three weeks ago. I found that I am just not all that hungry during the day. I do, however, know that it is unhealthy not to eat anything, so I find myself choosing small, very healthy meals and I get extremely full on about half the amount of food that it would normally take to get me full. The main point I am making is, because it makes you not hungry, it pretty much eliminates cravings. The thought of eating something heavy is repulsive so I end up eating very plain and simple foods like skinless chicken with veggies. I also have lost the urge to snack, so mostly I just eat a tiny breakfast, take a pill about an hour before lunch, have something small for lunch like a salad or small sandwich, and that keeps me totally full for hours. I take one anyway an hour before dinner, and make chicken and veggies, and can usually manage only about half my plate. I don’t feel hungry or deprived, I don’t have midnight cravings, I don’t need or want unhealthy foods. Like I said, I have to force myself to eat just because it is unhealthy to starve yourself. I haven’t been weighing myself but feel better, have more energy to exercise, and have noticed my pants getting looser. It’s good stuff, I’m very happy with it, and I’m extremely happy that it is all natural (read: no caffeine or stimulants to make me jittery and hyper, no fillers, etc). I highly recommend.

            I take one after I eat in the morning and after supper in the evening. Am i suppose to be taking them before i eat? in that case ive been taking them wrong, will need more probably. Thank you for your reply. I’ve been on them a week tomorrow. Don’t notice much difference in my stomach yet. I’m urinating and having more bowl movements. Is that common/good? Are you suppose to diet and excerise while taking them also? Or will they work alone? I really want to lose some weight off my stomach.

    The bottle just says take 2 capsules a day – I’m reading above and Catherine is saying you have to take it before each meal. That would be more than 2 capsules a day – if we’re talking 3 meals a day, then that’s 6 capsules a day! So what is correct? The instructions on the bottle were very vague. It just says “Take 2 capsules a day” – no other information…

    Please help – I want to make sure I’m taking this properly.

    Thanks,
    Renee

      Hi Renee
      According to Dr. Oz, you are supposed to take it 1/2 to 1 hour before meals, Not after. So you take one capsule two times a day before two meals of your choice.

      Hi Renee,

      When I ordered mine it came with a recommendation list of taking the pill “4″ times a day. When I saw the Dr. Oz show he also mentioned 4 times a day. It works best if you drink it with 8 oz of water and 30 – 60 min before meals. I take mine at 7a, 11:30a, 3:30p and 7pm. The late night pill is meant to keep you from having late night munchies. I have only been taking it for a week and notice that I have more energy, sleep better and crave less. But if I don’t drink my pill with water I do find myself craving something. I guess the water keeps the stomach full until the pill takes over.

    Hi Catherine, I brought a bottle of garcinia cambogia made by source health labs it contains:
    50mg calcium
    200mcg chromium
    50mg potassium
    1000mg garcinia cambogia extract ( 60% HCA)
    The only other ingredient is vegetable cellulose ( veggie caps)
    The bottle says to take two capsules 30 mins before eating three times a day. So that’s six capsules a day….is this ok?
    I’ve been taking it for three days now and am worrying the dosage is too high, I feel fine but am just concerned I’m taking too much.
    Thanks, kelly

      If the serving=2 capsules=1000mg, then it’s ok to take 3 servings/day, but if every capsule contains 1000mg then you shouldn’t take more then 3/day.

      Garcinia is said to be helpful in treating depression by creating more of the “feel good” brain chemicals known as serotonin, which is the same mechanism of action of celexa. Talk about it with your doctor please.

    Hi Catherine-

    Just found this website last night and felt so happy because of all my questions about the product. I purchased Garcinia Cambogia 1300.

    The Suggested use is 2 capsules daily.

    The ingredients read 50 mg Calcium, 200 mcg Chromium, 50 mg Potassium and 1000 mg Garcina Cambogia (fruit rind) Extract (with 60% HCA)

    So do I take 1 pill in the morning and 1 at lunch Or should I take it at all three main meals? I’m confused because it reads different that some of the other folks bottles. Thank you for your time.

    Hi. I just received mine and excited also nervous to try it. Mine has 1600 garciana cambogia extract. Im not sure if this is the real one. I dont normally drink dietary supplement but with all the good reviews ive heard i think it is worth the try. I do exercise like 3-4 times a week and somehow watch what i eat for like a month and not losing even a single pound so im hoping that by taking this (if what i received is the real one) i will see some result. Need to lose 25 pounds

    Well…. I was a little skeptical because of so many different things I’ve tried. Last Monday (June 10th) is when I started eating clean and taking the pills. It has definitely helped a lot! Lost 5 lbs in a week…. I know without the pills I would be hungry all the time so it helped curve my appetite and in my belly area definitely feels flatter and not as bloated. So happy I found these!!!!! Thank you!!!

      Hi
      In general, the weight loss industry is geared towards a female audience, but that does not mean men who suffer from obesity and being overweight cannot benefit from garcinia. You should know that Garcinia cambogia works for men as well as women and the process of burning fat and stopping cravings is the same for both. You are good to go :)

    I have been taking this for a little over 2 months now. At first being very skeptical I was satisfied that it didn’t have a bad taste or odor like other pills and that it didn’t have any side effects with me. I have lost a total of 20 pounds so far and I don’t do any exercises or special diets. My cravings have decreased and my energy has increased. Being a skeptic at first, I am convinced it does really work and good luck to others.

    I’ve been taking it for 3 days now and lost 5lb. I’m noticing I don’t want to snack also as soon as I wake up I take 2 capsules and I won’t want to eat but making myself. All I seem to do is drink lots. I had to make myself eat a BBQ last night which I can say I never would have had a problem. Fingers crossed, also impressed as I sufferer from IBS and these do not effect me in anyway. I brought mine of a different website but wondering if I can purchase off here. Althought I’m taking 4 capsules a day 2 before breakfast and 2 before supper. Not sure it’s right but its doing the job.

    Its been 30days since I took the supplement and my waist went down 2 maybe 3 inches. ive losted a total of 15lbs. taking the supplement stopped all food hunger within 5 mins of taking it. I did 30mins before lunch and dinner way. I also worked out to make the weight lose increase by 100 sit-ups an pushups a day. I purchased the 3 month one and looking at probably to lose 20lbs within the next 2 months. I started at 256 and now 241. goal is to be 220. for military expectation. also I went from a XXL shirt down to XL and my pants from a 38 to a 36 depending on kind a 34. Works rate 5/5

    I started on my Garcinia Cambogia on the 22.7.13. I weighed myself after 14 days and was blown away by the new figure staring up at me from the scales! I had gone from 78 kilos to 65 kilos in that short space of time. I was certainl that this must be wrong, so I weighed myself at the hospital as their scales are set properly, (well should be) and only one kilo heavier as I weighed in clothes at the hospital. So there you have it an amazing little capsule I have never been satisfied with many diets I have been on over the years, this is the only weight trimmer that has worked for me. I still have 12 kilos to loose they will probadly go slower as my body will have to adjust to the sudden drop in kilos. I still have 3 months supply of the product, so I reckon that will be perfect. I have never felt hungry the whole time I have been on the capsule, some times I have to force myself to eat. I am a happy camper thanks to DR. OZ and crew.

    ABSOLUTELY a miracle in my life, I usually. Crave candy corn, or those types of sweets, after being on this for a bout a week, I bought some of these sweet treats the other day, and it’s still sitting in my car. Absolutely to sweet for me, the old me, would have devoured the bag. And looked for more . especially since I’m perimenopausal, And simply cannot stick to a diet even for a day.. I am an emotional eater as well. Now I eat whatever I want in half the quantity, am able to take bites of food I really enjoy with no guilt, full pleasure, and with a great attitude,. I AM FINALLY FREE TO BE ME!! I FEEL LIKE A KID AGAIN!

Do you have to take them forever to maintain a healthy lifestyle? Also what is the colon cleanse?? is this something you take along with it? I have ordered the Garcinia Camogia and am a little confused about the other cleanse product? anyone?
