In short, that specific move to feature and endorse Garcinia had its place securely planted on people’s mind.

Garcinia (hydroxycitric acid)

Scientific Name(s): Garcinia cambogia (Gaertn.) Desr. Family: Clusiaceae (Guttiferae)

Common Name(s): Malabar tamarind , hydroxycitric acid ( HCA )

The medical literature primarily documents weight loss and lipid-lowering activity for the plant. However, trials supporting its use are limited.

The dosages of G. cambogia extract in clinical trials ranged from 1,500 to 4,667 mg/day (25 to 78 mg/kg/day). The equivalent hydroxycitric acid (HCA) dose in the trials ranged from 900 to 2,800 mg/day (15 to 47 mg/kg/day). G. cambogia is available in capsule or tablet form with a maximum dose of 1,500 mg/day.

Contraindications

Avoid use if there is a known allergy or hypersensitivity to any components of G. cambogia .

Pregnancy/Lactation

Information regarding safety and efficacy in pregnancy and lactation is lacking.

Interactions

The herb has documented drug interactions.

Adverse Reactions

At least 15 clinical studies involving approximately 900 patients document very mild adverse reactions. Most adverse reactions included headache, dizziness, dry mouth, and GI complaints such as nausea and diarrhea.

Toxicology

Toxicology studies resulted in no toxicity or deaths in animals at dosages of HCA 5,000 mg/kg, equivalent to 350 g or 233 times the maximum dosage of 1.5 g/day of HCA. In patients taking certain combination weight-loss supplements containing G. cambogia , severe or even fatal hepatotoxicity may occur.

The genus Garcinia is mainly distributed in tropical regions and includes approximately 200 species. G. cambogia belongs to the family Guttiferae and is found in India, Malaysia, and Africa. G. cambogia is commonly found in evergreen or semievergreen forests of southwest India, where 36 other species have been documented. 1 , 2 The plant species has variability in its branching pattern, fruit color, shape, and size. 1 The tree is small-to-medium in size with drooping branches. The leaves are dark green and glossy, oval-shaped with a narrow end, 5 to 12 cm in length, and 2 to 7 cm around. The tree is tolerant to drought and flowers during the hot season. The yellow, orange, or red fruit ripens during the rainy season and contains HCA. It is ovoid in shape, 5 centimeters around, has 6 to 8 seeds, and is listed in the US Department of Agriculture inventory of perennial edible fruits. 2

Dried fruit rinds have been used extensively for centuries throughout Southeast Asia for culinary purposes as a condiment and flavoring agent in place of tamarind or lemon. Additional culinary uses include the flavoring of curries, meat, and seafood. The fruit extract has been used as a flavoring agent for beverages and gourmet spices, as well as a carminative, thereby helping to prevent the formation of gas in the GI tract after a meal. HCA and other organic acids from the dried rind combined with salt help lower pH and provide a bacteriostatic effect used in curing fish. The herb is considered beneficial for overall health in the traditional Ayurvedic medical system. Rheumatism and bowel complaints are treated with a decoction of the fruit rind. A rinse is used from the herbal extract in veterinary medicine for some diseases of the mouth in cattle. HCA has also become popular as an ingredient for weight loss. 2 , 3 , 4

HCA is the primary medicinal component contained in the fruit rinds of G. cambogia . 5 HCA is present as up to 30% by weight in the pericarp of G. cambogia fruit. 6 Xanthones, xanthone derivatives, and polyisoprenylated benzophenones have been isolated. 6 , 7 Some salts used in commercial products are water soluble and bioavailable, and are a good source of calcium (495 mg) and potassium (720 mg). 8 Studies also document interest in production of HCA by using microorganisms. 9 , 10

Uses and Pharmacology

The medical literature primarily documents research on the weight loss and lipid-lowering activity of the plant.

In vitro and animal data

In 2 experiments using the human hepatoma cell line HepG2, overnight exposure to G. cambogia extract caused an upregulation of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor activity and an upregulation of the level of HMG-CoA reductase resulting in decreased cholesterol synthesis. 11 Flavonoids from the plant reduced lipid levels in normal and hypercholesterolemic rats. 7 Reductions were also documented in triglycerides, phospholipids, and free fatty acids. The mechanism of action for the flavonoids may involve: (1) reducing the rate of lipogenesis by reducing the activities of lipogenic enzymes, glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase, and isocitrate dehydrogenase; and (2) increasing the rate of degradation of cholesterol leading to higher levels of hepatic and fecal bile acids, as well as neutral sterols in rats treated with the herb. While dexamethasone typically elevates lipid profiles, G. cambogia extract maintained normal lipid levels in rats administered dexamethasone. 12

In a 4-week randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, 150 obese patients were treated with a dietary supplement ( G. cambogia extract 55 mg, chitosan 240 mg, and chrome 19 mg) together with a weight reduction regimen. Treatment groups administered the dietary supplement showed statistically significant dose-related reductions in weight, total and LDL cholesterol, and triglycerides, and improvement in high density lipoprotein cholesterol. 13

The suggested mechanism of action involves HCA-inhibiting lipogenesis, increasing lipid oxidation, and reducing food intake. 3 , 14

A study in obese rats found high doses of HCA-containing G. cambogia (154 mmol HCA/kg diet) effective in suppressing epididymal adipose tissue. This same study also found testicular atrophy and toxicity at dosages of 778 mg HCA/kg body weight/day (102 mmol HCA/kg diet) and higher. 4 Another study in rats administered a high-fat diet and a mixture of G. cambogia extract, soypeptide, and L-carnitine, led to a reduction in body weight and accumulation of visceral fat mass. 15 The mixture also improved blood and hepatic lipid concentrations or the induced dyslipidemia in the rats. Other combination products with G. cambogia are also effective in reducing weight gain and improving dyslipidemia, hyperinsulinemia, hyperleptinemia, and fatty liver in mice. 16 The antiobesity effect involves modulation of several genes associated with visceral adipogenesis. One study in adult, nonobese cats found no effect on fat-free mass or energy expenditure. 17

In an 8-week randomized clinical trial, 40 patients were given either placebo or G. cambogia extract (500 mg/capsule) by mouth before each meal. Patients administered the extract exhibited weight loss and improvement in cholesterol and triglycerides when compared with the placebo group. 2

In a 12-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, 40 obese patients were treated with a combination supplement containing G. cambogia 50 mg as well as a 1,200 calorie diet per day. Two tablets of the supplement were taken by mouth 3 times a day after meals. The treatment group attained a 3.5 kg weight loss versus 1.2 kg on placebo, and a more than 85% reduction in fat loss in body composition measurements. The majority of the active group participants did not follow the diet regimen. 18

In a 12-week, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel group trial, 89 mildly overweight women were treated with a 1,200 kcal diet along with 2 caplets of G.

Those claims include: — Garcinia cambogia is advertised, promoted, and marketed as a supplement that burns fat and controls appetite, despite the fact that modern science does not support any of these claims — Certain garcinia cambogia products may cause liver damage and could spike liver toxicity — Other health problems associated with garcinia cambogia include “adverse gastrointestinal effects”.

cambogia 400 mg or matched placebo 3 times a day before each meal. At the end of the trial, both groups lost weight, but the treatment group achieved greater reduction in body weight. G. cambogia had no effect on appetitive variables. 14

Numerous studies document the safety profile of the calcium-potassium double salt of 60% HCA preparation (HCA-SX), as well as its bioavailability and efficacy in helping patients attain a healthy body weight. 3 , 19 , 20 , 21 , 22 , 23

An 8-week, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study examined the efficacy of HCA-SX in 54 overweight patients. The treatment group was administered a combination supplement containing G. cambogia 500 mg 3 times a day while the control group received the placebo. All patients were asked to maintain a low-fat diet and drink 64 oz of water per day. The treatment group lost an average weight of 11.14 lb/person as compared with the control group, which lost an average of 4.2 lb/person. 19

Another 8-week, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study examined the efficacy of HCA in 60 obese patients. The dosage regimen for HCA was 400 mg 3 times a day before each meal. All patients were on a low-fat diet and also instructed to exercise 3 times a week. Results indicated weight loss for the experimental group compared with the placebo group and that 87% of the weight loss in the HCA group was because of fat loss. Appetite scores were also reduced in the HCA-treated group. 19

Visceral, subcutaneous, and total fat accumulation were reduced in 39 patients over 16 weeks in a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial. The dosage regimen included HCA 1,000 mg/day versus placebo. At the end of the treatment, both groups were administered placebo for 4 weeks and no rebound effect was documented. 24

Another clinical study documented that treatment with HCA failed to produce weight change and fat mass change in patients. 25 However, the design of the clinical trial, the lack of bioavailability, and dosage of HCA used have been criticized. 2

Other pharmacologic activity

Some studies found that supplementation with G. cambogia can reduce oxidative damage. 26

The fruit contains xanthones, which inhibit pre-neoplastic lesions in mammary and colon cancer. The xanthones may also induce apoptosis in mouth, leukemia, breast, gastric, and lung cancer cell lines in vitro. 27

Glucose metabolism may be improved by lowering serum insulin levels in mice treated with G. cambogia . Leptin is a hormone associated with appetite control. G. cambogia may have leptin-like activity as mice treated with G. cambogia had decreased serum leptin levels and a reduced leptin/white adipose tissue ratio. 28 HCA treatment delayed and reduced intestinal glucose absorption in rats; the treatment causes delayed intestinal absorption of glucose rather than delayed gastric emptying. 29

HCA promoted lipid oxidation and reduced carbohydrate use in mice at rest and during running. 30 The utilization of respiratory gases was reduced for mice treated with HCA at rest and during exercise. Some studies on herbal coffee supplements with HCA showed an increase in resting energy expenditure to enhance metabolic rates and promote weight and fat loss. 31 , 32

Antiulcer activity was observed against induced gastric mucosal injury in rats with pretreatment of G. cambogia extract that decreased volume and acidity of gastric juice. 33 A similar study in rats found activity against indomethacin-induced gastric ulcers. 34 The anti-inflammatory activity of G. cambogia protected against induced colitis in rats. 35

Red blood cell count

A G. cambogia extract caused an increase in the red blood cell (RBC) count in rat tissue. The activity may be (1) associated with the iron in G. cambogia , as iron is an erythropoietic agent; (2) antioxidant activity and may decrease the rate of oxidant-induced hemolysis, which increases the life span of the RBC; or (3) the content of bioflavonoids in the plant, which may increase the level of peripheral testosterone, which can stimulate erythropoiesis in humans. 36

The dosages of G. cambogia extract in clinical trials ranged from 1,500 to 4,667 mg/day (25 to 78 mg/kg/day). The equivalent HCA dose in the trials ranged from 900 to 2,800 mg/day (15 to 47 mg/kg/day). 2 , 14 , 18 , 19 , 23 , 24 , 25 G. cambogia is available in capsule or tablet form with a maximum dose of 1,500 mg/day.

Pregnancy/Lactation

Due to lack of clinical and scientific information, use should be avoided during pregnancy and lactation. One animal study in rats documented decreased maternal body weight gain during gestation. 37

Interactions

In patients taking medications for diabetes by mouth or insulin, G. cambogia may lower blood sugar levels. 28 , 29

G. cambogia contains iron and thus may have additive adverse reactions for patients taking medications for anemia. 36

Potassium and calcium supplements

Some commercial G. cambogia products contain adequate amounts of potassium and calcium. 8 Caution is advised for patients taking medications for heart disease, high blood pressure, or arrhythmia while supplementing with any product containing this herb.

A mouse study using a commercial polyherbal product containing G. cambogia found a potential serotonergic effect on food intake. Caution is advised for patients being treated for pain or taking medications for any psychiatric condition. 38

Singulair (or leukotriene receptor antagonists)

One case report documented fatal liver failure in a patient taking Singulair and 2 dietary supplements, one of which included G. cambogia and citrus derivatives. 39

A case report of rhabdomyolysisis is documented in a patient taking a combination herbal medicine containing G. cambogia . 40

In one case report, the international normalized ratio of a patient returned to normal after he stopped taking a combination herbal product containing G. cambogia . 41

Adverse Reactions

A total of 15 clinical studies involving approximately 900 patients documented very mild adverse reactions. Most adverse reactions included headache, dizziness, dry mouth, and GI complaints such as nausea and diarrhea. 2 , 42

Toxicology

Toxicology studies resulted in no toxicity or deaths in animals at HCA dosages of 5,000 mg/kg, equivalent to 350 g or 233 times the maximum dose of 1.5 g/day of HCA. 5 In patients taking certain combination weight-loss supplements containing G. cambogia , severe or even fatal hepatotoxicity may occur. 43 , 44 Some animal studies document testicular toxicity, 4 , 45 while other studies do not. 46 , 47

No unusual electrocardiographic effects (QTc interval or other electrocardiograph variables) were seen over 5 hours in patients taking half the recommended dose of a multicomponent weight loss supplement containing G. cambogia . 48 Patients receiving G. cambogia extract (1,667.3 mg/kg equivalent to 1,000 mg HCA/day) for 12 weeks exhibited no reproductive toxicity on serum testosterone, estrone, and estradiol levels.

Can I take Garcinia Cambogia while on Coumadin?

Responses (1)

It shouldn't effect the coumadin. That being said you should not take any supplements without talking to the dr prescribing the coumadin.

"Shouldn't"? Show me the evidence, please. I'm interested in the product, but am keeping my distance for the moment.

my doctor can not answer this unless he knows what in it. I need to find out what is in to take him the information.

Eat food that's low in salt/sodium

For the next 2 days you have to limit your salt to just 500-to-1500 mg a day and that's only two small teaspoons and If you find it impossible to keep your salt intake low…

You can use spices such as garlic, ginger & black pepper as salt substitutes (spices also help increase your fat-burning metabolism) and another good salt substitute is a product called Nu-Salt and remember…

You should exercise or safely use steam rooms or saunas to help you also flush out excess sodium & water and you need to take a multivitamin daily to replace any essential minerals you lose while flushing out excess sodium & water weight.

3. Limit your carbs by eating foods high in protein and low in carbs

The only carbs you should get for the next 2-to-3 days should only come from fruits and veggies and… Everything else you eat should be high in protein / low in carbs - See a list of high protein foods good for weight loss.

The amount of water weight you lose in 2 days depends on how much salt, carbs, and water you were putting in your body before you started this simple plan so… You could be carrying 0 (none at all) to 10 pounds (or more!) of excess water weight and…

You shouldn't gain too much water weight back unless…

  • You eat too much salt and then your body has to retain all that water to handle the excess salt. You can prevent water weight gain by eating no more than 2000-to-3000mg of salt or sodium a day and/or…
  • You don't drink any water at all - this will also cause your body to retain water and/or…
  • You eat way too many carbs - Every pound of carbs stored in your body holds 3-5 pounds of water. Just eat a balanced diet of carbs, proteins, and fats to prevent water weight gain and remember…

This plan will only help you lose water weight real fast so you need to pick one of these weight loss plans if you want to Lose BodyFat and keep it off forever.

I am in a weight loss challenge at work. Last year I took 2nd place out of 400 participants by loosing 36lbs (17.2%).

First place lost 19.6%.

I gained all the weight back so that I could go for first, so my goal was 20%.

In the last 6 weeks I have dropped from 210 to 178.5, so I have tied my loss from last year.

I'm not asking for advice.

I'm just posting this so that people can see that they are only in their own way. You body wants to be healthy, and it works with what you give it.

Stop eating sugars.

Carbohydrates, sucrose, fructose, lactose, etc., should all be treated like a special treat, and only consumed in moderation.

READ THIS***Ok I’m just befuddled. This is telling you to drink water on water on water and to NOT eat salt and sodium filled foods. When your drinking so much water it causes your electrolytes to go down as well as your sodium. You need to be eating foods with some sodium to keep those levels up or you could suffer from water intoxication, especially if you drink it all at once, which you should NOT be doing at all.

February 27, 2018

only if you drink distilled water this is true and maybe if you eat nothing at all.

no danger in this if you're drinking regular water and eating regualr food which has trace amounts of sodium

I'm 4'11 and weigh 115 lbs and drink about 2-3 bottles of water a day and starting to exercise. will this plan work?

February 26, 2018

yes but do you have a long term goal?

February 26, 2018

What do you recommend for protein that is low in salt

February 25, 2018

what about protein supplements? you can have salt provided you drink enough water to prevent and flush out excess water

I cannot stop eating junk food

I am 50 kg and want at least 44

I am 5'3 110 lbs

February 21, 2018

its the amount of calories you that is not

February 21, 2018

Until you replace "cannot" with "wont," in that sentence, no one can help you. Simply stop putting junk food in your mouth. When you see junk food, leave it alone. It's very simple.

Hi , i want to know why not distilled water? Then is tap water ok?

At the same time it increases good cholesterol and thereby helps in boosting the immunity.

Filtered water ? Bottle waters will b too expensive for me. And what happens if u drink distilled water. Im glad i found ur website everythings makes so much more sense than other diets. Thank you

February 01, 2018

the potential danger with distilled is that you flush out water without replacing minerals and electrolyes

February 01, 2018

Distilled water is the same as regular water it just has more things in it so it makes it harder to lose weight

February 01, 2018

hi . i am aman. i am 173 cm and a 102 kg. should i take prescription drugs to reduce weight as it is very difficult to walk for me now ?

You can always make time. Get up earlier, workout before school and then shower and have breakfast and you’ll have time to get to the high school. Or stay up and workout before bed or right after dinner.

I'm 23, 5'4" and I weigh 198 lbs. I want to lose weight. But nothing seems to be working. I don't eat very much at all. And I work in a lumber yard where I am basically exercising all day. And I still gained 8 pounds in the last 39 days. I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

January 14, 2018

On a side note. While I don't eat very much. I probably drink atleast 100 ounces of Pepsi a day. And I dont drink much water.

January 14, 2018

are you tracking your calorie intake

January 14, 2018

That's why you are not losing any weight. You are drinking your calories. If I calculated right, you are drinking 1250 calories which are, based on your height, is your minimal weight loss caloric limit.

Find a way to replace the Pepsi with water. I'm your height and close to your age, I started about 5lbs above your current weight and now I'm only 22lbs away from my goal weight. I had the same issue with drinking my calories. To get off it, I used Pump flavoured drops to put in my water and it has very little calories. Most of my drinks are now just plain water.

Another way is to buy something like an orange, lemon or other fruit/vegetable, slice a small bit off and put it in your water to let the flavour mix with it.

January 18, 2018

Not eating enough may be the issue, that or what you eat. Do you have insulin resistance? Do you have a healthy thyroid? Still have your gallbladder? These three factors may be why you're struggling. Also take into account that should you have a lot of muscles due to lots activity - muscle weighs more than fat. If you don't have underlying problems with thyroid, insulin, gallbladder, etc. then look at a Ketogenic diet mixed with intermittent fasting. The best would be to go and see a dietitian or nutritionist.

I have hypothyroidism and a missing gallbladder - apart from that I underwent a back operation and had to drink a lot of cortisone to aid healing infections and inflammation - I packed on 33 pounds in a year and even before that I wasn't at my ideal weight of 165lb (I'm tall as well and originally athletically built) so I ended up weighing in at 250lb and I have around 85lb to lose (already lost 11lb on the paleo intermittent fasting - yay!). I've gone off all the things not on the paleo list.

It's not going to be easy if you have bad habits to break, but in the end choosing healthy is the only way to go.

Hi Cyberry, you sound much like me and I would love to get your contact so we can be fitness partners. I am 24, 5'6.

130 is perfectly healthy for a 13 year old. Especially if you are playing sports because muscle weights a lot more than fat. :)

Im 300 lbs & 25 ive been a vegetarian for 20 years its so hard to do low carb even if i eat 1800 or 1600 a day i dont lose weight. What do you suggest?

January 09, 2018

How much carbs should we have a day?

January 06, 2018

to lose weight? it does not matter. total calories is what matters most although lower carb intakes do lead to less calories and more protein for faster metab

as for losing water weight? have as little carbs as possible

I've watched a few of your videos and I'm impressed. So i figured maybe you have advise for me. I am a 31 year old female suffering from severe asthma that at one time left me in a coma on life support that was two years ago. Since then I have gained 150 lbs and suffer from multiple problems. My doctor wants me to look into lap band surgery but it scares me so I would really like to loose it on my own. Ive been on very high doses of steriods and in and out of the hospital, I'm carrying alot of water weight. I'm also being considered for a procedure to reduce my asthma at this time im not healthy enough for it. My goal is too loose at least 70 lbs, would love to loose 150 lbs. I am currently 5'9" and weigh 370 lbs.

January 03, 2018

as far as physical/exercise do you have any limitations? Will your doctor be okay with you doing my type of workouts?

January 03, 2018

Hi I was really hoping you could help me lose a lot of weight by the beginning of February. I really want to lose at least a stone and I know it sounds ridiculous but i’m overweight anyway so I can lose weight really quick. Most days when I eat a little less, I tends to lose 3lbs.

Hi I’m 16 and I weigh 135 pounds and I’m 5’4. I was wondering what could I do to lose 15 pounds of belly fat in a day. Please help me I hate how I look.

December 30, 2017

15 pounds of FAT is not goign away in a day. maybe 15 pounds of water but at your height and weight I doubt you can lose 15 pounds of water in oNe day

January 01, 2018

For your height, weight, and age, I'd say you are EXACTLY where you are supposed to be!
