Garcinia Cambogia Review: What You Need To Know

What's Inside This Guide

What’s all the fuss about? Well, this fruit rind extract has been touted as a revolutionary way to lose fat, tone up and suppress those cravings all in one natural supplement. With virtually no side effects, not like the awful buzz of too much caffeine or the nauseous feeling that many appetite suppressants can bring, this supplement was featured on the Dr Oz show, where his team of dedicated professionals explained just how this new pill could help the body to use its excess fat stores AND block the ability to build new fat reserves whilst reducing the stress level cortisone.

So if you’re like me, and hold your excess weight around your middle, this could be the perfect solution. But, the reviews out there have been mixed with some people seeing good results and others seeing very little indeed. Could it be that this secret ingredient is nothing more than a marketing ploy, or are we being cheated by unscrupulous companies while we chase our dreams of a tighter, more toned body? I thought I’d check out GCE from my favorite store and see whether this really is a miracle weight loss supplement.

What is Garcinia Cambogia?

Before we get to the supplement, dosage, side effects and so on, I thought I’d include a little information about the source of the supplement. Garcinia Cambogia Extract is taken from the rind of the malaban tamarind fruit, a fruit native to South East Asia and India. It has been used medicinally and in food preparation in its native home for centuries, because it has been said to boast the following properties:

  • Souring agent, used in traditional Indian or South East Asian hot and sour curries[1]
  • Used for bowel problems and rheumatism[2]
  • Contains HCA (Hydroxycitric Acid) which has been under the spotlight for weight loss
  • Food preservative, coloring agent and curing agent
  • Used as a carmative to prevent or expel excess gas formed in the GI tract[3]

How is Garcinia Cambogia linked to weight loss?

Garcinia Cambogia is said to boost weight loss in two different ways. Firstly, it blocks the enzyme in the liver that is responsible for the default function of converting sugar and carbs to fat. So instead of the fat cells getting plumper, GCE ‘plugs’ the fat cells and directs any sugar and carbs to the energy stores to be burnt off. The body is processing less fat and is under less stress, so less cortisol (the belly fat-creating hormone) is produced. The second way that it works is by sending signals to the brain that release more serotonin, our happy hormone, and this happiness stops us craving stress foods like sugar, carbs and salty foods and could have a positive impact on appetite suppression.

About Garcinia Cambogia and its clinical studies

Several clinical studies have been undertaken to assess the efficacy of Garcinia Cambogia. At the moment the research is a little patchy and generally the medical community recommends more testing. I’ve written a longer article focused on Garcinia Cambogia research and clinical trials, but have included a summary right here for you:

  • In a four week trial[4], 150 obese subjects saw a significant, dose-dependent decrease in weight, LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, and an improvement in good cholesterol
  • In an eight week trial[5], 40 subjects saw an increase in weight loss against the placebo group
  • In a 12 week trial[6] with a reduced calorie diet, the group lost nearly three times as much weight as the placebo group
  • In a 4 week trial[7] with a reduced calorie diet, 89 mildly overweight women saw an increase in weight loss against the placebo group, but noted no discernible change to appetite
  • In an eight week trial[8] with a low fat diet and at least 64oz water consumption per day, 54 overweight subjects lost an average of 11.2lb per person
  • In an eight week trial[9] with a low fat diet and moderate (three times per week) exercise, 60 obese subjects saw a greater weight loss and reduction of appetite than the placebo group
  • In a 16 week trial[10] with a low fat diet and moderate exercise, all 39 subjects saw a reduction in belly fat and gained none of it when given a placebo for four weeks

Go to any medical site and they will be the first to say that the supplement and ingredients such as HCA need a ton more research. It’s the same with any new herbal supplement I guess. But the research that’s taken place to date is certainly encouraging.

Is It Trusted And Safe To Use?

Genuine Garcinia Cambogia has been noted to have been ‘well tolerated’ for up to 12 weeks in human trials.

By far the most well-publicized benefit of using garcinia cambogia is its ability to increase weight loss.

Whilst this is a little vague, it means that there are generally few adverse reactions. Be sure to read the ‘who should take Garcinia Cambogia’ section below, for a list of who should avoid the supplement.

Who Is Garcinia Cambogia For?

Being a natural supplement, there are few people that should avoid taking Garcinia Cambogia. However, until more research has been undertaken, it is recommended that the following people should avoid it, or use it under medical supervision:

  • Patients with diabetes (high blood sugar) or hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) should avoid the supplement
  • Patients taking any medication that affect blood sugar should use Garcinia Cambogia under medical supervision
  • Patients with a high risk or history of rhabdomyolysis (a potentially fatal disease involving the degeneration of skeletal muscle) should use Garcinia Cambogia under medical supervision
  • Patients taking statins, should exercise caution as the combined medicines may increase the risk of rhabdomyolysis
  • Those with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia should avoid Garcinia Cambogia because of the theoretical possibility of forming acetylcholine in the brain
  • Those trying to conceive, pregnant or breastfeeding should avoid until further scientific evidence can be undertaken

My Favorite Garcinia Supplement?

Once you’ve decided that you want to try Garcinia Cambogia, the most important element is finding the right supplier. I’m not pushing any particular brand as it can be difficult to know whether a brand has been replicated and is not in fact genuine. I know of at least two well-known doctors/celebs that have had to put out alerts to their users saying that they are NOT endorsing a particular brand of Garcinia Cambogia, as there are a lot of unscrupulous companies out there selling fake or poor quality goods. I strongly recommend this brand at Amazon. After buying from them, I received great customer support and they were able to provide proof that their Garcinia Cambogia had been tested by a third party lab.

In general, I would say:

  • Use a trusted brand or store like Amazon
  • Read online reviews about your chosen brand carefully
  • Check the small print and reviews if you choose a ‘money back guarantee’ option, make sure that people that have returned the product for whatever reason have actually got refunds
  • Choose a supplement that has at least 50% HCA
  • Choose a supplement that contains minerals such as potassium and chromium, as these seem to have better reviews online
  • Choose a supplement that contains at least 600mg per day
  • Choose a supplement free from fillers or binders

Taking Garcinia Cambogia

I chose a supplement to try from my local and trusted health food store, and took 500mg three times per day.

**ULTRA-IMPORTANT** It’s critical that you take the supplements on an empty stomach, around 30-60 minutes before a meal. Food will interact with the supplement and reduce its efficacy. Also, I’m not sure of the science behind this, but I recall one study saw fewer results because the subjects were on a high fiber diet. Somehow that interfered, so eat a balanced healthy diet rich in vegetables, fruit, lean meats and good fats.

I took a supplement that also contained potassium, because I trusted Dr Oz!! I didn’t take any additional extracts as I wanted to see what this supplement did on its own.

So I took the pills three times a day, on an empty stomach. Unlike some supplements I’ve taken, I had no nausea or restlessness, you know like those buzzy caffeine pills. After drinking each one with a big glass of water, it’s common sense that an hour later you’ll be less hungry than you were, but my appetite was definitely more satiated than if I’d just had water.

The results were pretty much from day one, I was less hungry and ate slightly smaller meals, but the biggest effect I saw was in the type of food I wanted and the impact on my snacking. I know that my excess weight is down to my continual grazing, I eat pretty healthy but I can’t sleep unless I’ve had a full carb-loaded meal. And – ladies – at THAT time of the month I have an insatiable appetite for candy, chocolate, crisps, crackers…you name it! But in the three months that I took Garcinia Cambogia, my cravings all but disappeared.

It won’t hurt if you take one because most diet pills are made using natural ingredients that have been found to lead to weight loss.

Always know the terms and conditions and be sure to check with customer service in cases of cancellation.

I ate when I was hungry (such a novelty for me, usually eating without even being aware of it) and saw the weight come off almost instantly.

I’ll be honest, we’re not talking total body transformations or anything. But I had stubborn belly fat that all types of exercise and diet had failed to get rid of for good. I guess I was carrying an extra 10lb over my ideal weight, and the majority of that was round my stomach. Garcinia Cambogia seemed to target that fat exclusively, which was a win-win for me as I didn’t want to lose any from my bust or butt. So in three months I lost around 9lb, but it was all from where I wanted it to go, and with no discernible change to my diet or exercise regime. I’m pretty fit so kept up the jogging and yoga, and it all seemed to work in harmony! I’ve now got a tighter waistline and am eating ‘mindfully’ for the first time in a hundred years!!

The million dollar question: Does Garcinia Cambogia work?

For me, it definitely worked. I saw reduced cravings to snack, and when I did eat, I was fuller faster, and on better quality foods. During my time of the month, I had little to no cravings. In fact, one time I went to the cinema and usually gorge on popcorn, but I only dipped in and out of this time (my husband was cursing me as he ended up eating it all!).

That said, it will only work if it’s a genuine product with a minimum 50% HCA. There are a lot of stores or vendors out there selling inferior products, which is why, in my mind, some people aren’t seeing the results they hoped.

What’s great about Garcinia Cambogia?

  • Natural supplement based on fruit used commonly for centuries
  • Helps curb cravings for sugar/salt/carbohydrates
  • Can boost weight loss, best used in conjunction with a healthy diet and moderate activity
  • No horrible side effects like nausea or headaches
  • Endorsed by doctors, models and celebrities
  • Cheap, compared to many supplements

Anything not so great?

  • Some people have seen minimal results – I say you can’t eat everything and expect to lose weight!
  • Some people have seen no results – I keep saying it, but check you’re buying from a reputable source and that the supplement contains at least 50% HCA
  • Can’t be used by those with blood sugar issues (see my full Side Effects of Garcinia Cambogia report)

What others are saying about Garcinia Cambogia?

I’ve researched many sources of Garcinia Cambogia users to bring you a consolidation of the most frequent opinions. In summary, there have been a lot of people ripped off and for them, they’ve lost money and not seen any results. For those that have bought reputable brands, they’ve seen moderate results which have been optimized by a healthy diet and moderate activity. Here are the views:

  • “I dropped from 13.5% to 11% body fat in time for my beauty show.”
  • “I have been taking for 2 weeks and have lost 8lbs, I love it!”
  • “I have been taking Garcinia Cambogia for 2 months and have lost 10lbs.”
  • “I have been taking it for two weeks and don’t see an extraordinary change, just 3lbs in two weeks.”
  • “After 1 week, I was surprised by the dramatic results…my energy levels were up and I wasn’t even hungry…after the fifth week my results were shocking. I lost an unbelievable 23lbs.”
  • “I’ve been taking it for a week and gained 3lbs!”
  • “Never buy from a site that appeared 1 hour after the Dr Oz show.”
  • “Took for a month and no weight loss”
  • “I purchased mine at GNC after talking to the sales person. She said her husband lost 60 lbs but she has only lost 10, but she admitted he works out more.”

My opinion: A summary review of Garcinia Cambogia

It’s not often you can find something that helps you lose weight without changing your diet or exercise habits, but Garcinia Cambogia seems to do just that. I made no changes but saw a drop of 9lb over my trial period, I’m now down to my ideal weight and have lost it all from my belly. I bought from a store I trusted, and went for a supplement with over 50% HCA, and it really worked, particularly in curbing my grazing and snacking. As with any diet supplement, there will be rogue dealers out there so always check reviews before buying online, use recommended products or buy via your trusted store. Here’s to the body you’ve always wanted!

Pure garcinia cambogia extract cheap

Some brands use deception and trickery to make it seem like an ok deal. A good value depends on purity and cost per mg (milligram) of garcinia.

If they list mg per SERVING on the label, customers don’t realize the 2 or 3 capsules they recommend per serving means, the mg per CAPSULE is 1/2 to 1/3 what they show in bold on the front of the bottle. They do this to trick consumers.

Heavily advertised and promoted is not necessarily Good

We are attempting to help the most people by providing guidance on brands they are finding in their research. The chart above compares features of some brands that are most easily found on the internet. Some good, some bad.

Some brands that are very bad values are actually the most heavily advertised. They sell a crappy product for ridiculously inflated prices, but are experts at advertising on websites all over the internet. So, we show some of those brands in the chart above, since they reach a lot of people that we are trying to help avoid being ripped off.

The fact is that many of these shady sellers are actually affiliates doing affiliate marketing. They spend a LOT of money advertising. It’s not uncommon for them to spend upwards of $2 per single click on their ads. But all they’re doing is sending you to free trial gimmicks (see below).

Once they do that, they’re done. They’re gone and out of the picture – you won’t ever talk to them again… The moment you fill out t he form for your free trial, they get paid from the “real” company. The real company is happy to do this, because now they have all your payment and personal information to lock you into a costly subscription. It’s a win-win for them, but you get ripped off.

Why? Because most of these companies don’t even have a true, physical location for their business. They operate entirely online… They:

        • Set up shop online
        • Recruit and pay affiliates to send them customers
        • Once they feel they’ve made enough or are close to being busted, they shut down
        • They set up a new shop online and rinse and repeat

We aren’t saying it’s bad to advertise or even advertise a lot. Not all of these companies will be scammers. Primarily look for:

        • The ads listed high on the right of search results and in the little Google ads box above search results. If they’re constantly showing up there, they’re paying a pretty penny to be there.
        • Combine that with the rest of the warning signs we cover here.

NO FREE TRIALS .

We feel very strongly about this. For many years now, scammers have preyed upon the innocent by offering a “free trial” of whatever is the hot new diet product. While it may seem like a good way to try a product to see if you like it – they are NEVER a good idea.

– Tricked into signing up for subscription

The scammers don’t really want to introduce you to the product. They get your credit card number to cover “shipping”. They then hide the terms of the “free offer” in very tiny print on one of the pages you go through and you are tricked into signing up for a subscription!

Even worse than being signed up for monthly deliveries, the terms usually start charging you $80 or more per month within days of the free trial – sometimes before you even get the “free trial”.

Scientists discovered that people who consume the fruit are some of the seemingly healthiest people in the world.

The victim doesn’t even know they have to cancel, and many times the company is very hard or impossible to find, contact, and cancel the monthly payments.

– Free trials make a LOT of $$$$ – for the scammers

These “free trials” rip off so many people and are very lucrative for the companies that offer them, so, they can afford to spend tons advertising. That is why the most heavily advertised brands are usually “free trials”.

In our experience, Free Trials are never used by legitimate brands that sell a quality product. They KNOW the victims won’t be happy with the deceptive scams, and won’t use these tactics if they want to grow their brand, but are only interested in the short term. So, the FIRST thing we look for in evaluating a brand is – Do they use Free Trials?

– Brands that use “Free Trials” and should be avoided
        • Miracle Garcinia Cambogia
        • Pure Garcinia Cambogia (many versions of this name)
        • Ultimate Garcinia Cambogia
        • Bio Health Garcinia Cambogia
        • Natural Garcinia Cambogia
        • SlimScience

Label Not shown

A good brand usually WANTS you to see their label, to brag about the quality of their ingredients and/or the quantity.

Of course a label may not fit in the the page layout or be the first thing you see. But if you click around and cant find the label easily, you can bet the seller has made it difficult to find for a reason.

– Look for the Label BEFORE you buy

By US law, the label on the bottle MUST list the ingredients and quantities. But there is no law that says it must be displayed on a website prior to sale.

So, shady brands will not show the label, so you won’t realize the puny quantity or quality of the product.

Of course, free trial always hide the labels of the product.

– Brands that don’t show the Labels before you buy
        • Miracle Garcinia Cambogia
        • Pure Garcinia Cambogia (many versions of this name)
        • Ultimate Garcinia Cambogia
        • Bio Health Garcinia Cambogia
        • Natural Garcinia Cambogia

MoneyBack Guarantee from a Trusted Seller

There are many brands that advertise a Moneyback Guarantee, but they make it very difficult to return their product. Even worse are those that are advertised heavily for a few months and then dissappear, so buyers have noone to contact. Those are usually the free trial brands, that don’t care about customer satisfaction, or building a good brand name for the long term.

These people have no established business or internet presence that they have to protect. So ignoring refund requests does them no harm. In fact, by the time you decide you want a refund, guess what? There’s a very good chance that you won’t be able to locate them, let alone contact them and get a refund. They’ve packed up shop and disappeared.

A good clue is if they only sell one product, you know they just made up the brand name to take advantage of the hot product and will be here today and gone tomorrow.

There is no set rule or guideline in place to say how many milligrams a Garcinia supplement is required to contain or how many servings. So as you look at different products you’ll likely see a range of numbers. Some may contain 90 capsules, but you have to take three capsules to equal a serving. So it’s still only a one month supply. The capsules just aren’t as powerful.

Because there’s no required guidelines for manufacturers to meet, there are some that produce HCA supplements that simply aren’t worth the money at all. In order to be effective, they should have a bare minimum of 50% HCA. Unfortunately, many suppliers (like the ones listed above in most cases) do not show you the amount of HCA that their extract has. That’s a bad sign. Before buying any garcinia supplement, you need to be able to verify the amount of HCA that it has.

If you seen Dr. Oz talk about garcinia cambogia then you’ll know that one of the reasons he was excited about it was the fact that it’s cheap. On average, you shouldn’t expect to spend more than $30 or so on a bottle of this supplement. Unfortunately, there are plenty of sellers jacking up the price and not even letting you know exactly what you’re buying (making the label available before purchase).

Price (per Milligram)

Just because something costs less doesn’t always mean that it’s a better value.

Getting The Most Out Of Your Diet Plan Obviously, exercising regularly and eating properly will help anyone whose goal is to get in shape.

If you do the math, you’ll see that you’re still spending more per milligram. How do you do that? It’s easier than you think:

You can see that NewLifeBotanicals is by far the best deal per milligram:

It’s a shame, but the diet industry is notoriously known for having less-than-honest people in it. It’s super easy these days to get scammed, especially when you’re buying supplements online. We hope that these reviews, warnings and tips will help steer you away from suspicious sellers. It’s extremely important to take your time when deciding who to buy from and remember that you should never buy anything if you can’t read the label first.

As far as Garcinia Cambogia goes, one of the very first things you should look for is the amount of HCA it contains. You should look for something with at least 50%. One brand we can whole heartedly recommend is NewLifeBotanical which you can find at some Whole Foods store, and sold online by Alivebynature.org, or also available at Amazon, as well.

This is the best we’ve found for several reasons:

  • It’s all natural (always a good thing)
  • 60% HCA – the highest available
  • Continues to receive amazing feedback
  • Has 600mg per capsule
  • You don’t get ripped off with it being full of fillers
  • You get the most amazing money back guarantee we’ve seen (no questions asked, no return authorizations, nothing!)

  • I was diagnosed with fatty liver in about 2005 from my primary care doctor. At the time I liked to drink a few beers with the boys and he said I needed to stop my drinking. Well I started to research on the topic. Much of what I read, pointed toward, and my doctor agreed that weight loss was the main issue. So I told him I wanted to look at getting weight loss surgery. Him and I disagree here because he thought I just needed to totally quit drinking, and I thought lets try weight loss surgery and possibly supplements to help. While we still disagreed some, he made me appointment with a weight loss center in Spokane Wa. To this day that was the best decision I have made. Ever since then my ability to help my own liver numbers have been much easier. I have been using milk thistle along with weight loss ever since and am doing very good even today with good blood work ups and so forth. My doctor though is still negative on what I did. Oh well its 2015. Liver numbers still good. I still drink some and take milk thistle.
