Garcinia Cambogia
Garcinia Cambogia 

Garcinia Cambogia is a tropical plant found in Indonesia.   The rind is used and known for having weight loss properties due to the hydroxycitric acid (HCA) that it contains.

Garcinia Cambogia's HCA is primarily used for weight loss and helping with exercise results.  It has also been used for treating worms and parasites, and severe diarrhea.
How does is work?
HCA is supposed to inhibit the conversion of  carbohydrates to fat and is thought to suppress appetite as well.  


Just take a pill or capsule
Lose extra pounds
Lose weight faster


Reported HCA percentages in pills deviate significantly from actual percentage.  The worst offender was Trusted Nutrients Garcinia Cambogia, 99.5% below its label claim.
There is little scientific evidence supporting the efficacy of Garcinia extract for weight loss/appetite suppression. 
Benefits of Garcinia Cambogia supplementation as a weight loss aid or appetite suppressant have no proof.


Side Effects:

Long term use of HCA has caused on case of severe acidosis
Long term use of HCA is thought to destroy the testicles
Risk of side-effects is low for up to 8 weeks with small dosages.
Some reports of nausea, digestive tract discomfort, and headaches.
HCA side effects include headaches, dizziness and dry mouth
A meta-analysis in 2010 revealed that gastrointestinal negative effects were twice as likely for users of hydroxycitric acid. 
HCA is not good in patients with Colitis or Inflammatory Bowel Disease (see your health care professional)

Does it work?  NO!

Clinical studies indicate that HCA do not contribute to weight loss or reduce fat mass.  Extracts have been used as appetite suppressants with zero scientific or clinical proof that they are effective.

There have been very few studies made regarding the benefits of Garcinia Cambogia, and all these studies have been with very small groups and for a short time span with the max at 12 weeks.  If this diet aid really worked, there would have been clinical proof long ago.  

The best FAT BURNER  is still a good exercise program.  The best FAT BLOCKER is a healthy diet.   Until proven otherwise, which I doubt will ever happen, Garcinia Cambogia should be avoided.  I give it two thumbs down!

Some day there may be a pill that will help us to lose weight, but that pill has not yet arrived.

Thank you for reading, my friends.  I wish you much success on your weight loss journey.

Kindest regards,

Weight Loss Pills and Supplements!

Many Weight Loss Supplements and pills simply do not work. 

Most have not been proven to work, since there is no clinical or scientific evidence to justify their claims.   

The few weight loss pills or supplements that do work, usually work due to the fact that they contain fiber or a stimulant.

Fiber helps you to feel fuller longer, so fiber can help you to curb your appetite. 

If a diet supplement or diet pill relies on a stimulant to help you to lose weight, the theory is that the stimulant will improve or increase your metabolism.  To the best of my knowledge, the kinds of diet pills that allegedly increase metabolism, have very little metabolic benefit unless you exercise.  In other words, for you to benefit from a supplement that claims to boost your metabolism, you need to exercise.  When you combine exercise with a metabolic stimulant, you will supposedly burn more calories.

Before You BUY:

Before you purchase a diet pill or a diet supplement, do your homework (research) and consider the following:
  • Many diet products have NO clinical or scientific studies or trials to back up their claims.
  • Many of the ones that seem to have clinical evidence that they work are based on their own trials, not of a third party.
  • For the ones that seem to have evidence, you will probably find that this evidence is 'not published'. 
  • Many diet products contain a watered down version of what you think you are buying.
  • Always consider the side effects.
  • In the case of the few pills that will help you to lose weight, the results are often minimal.
  • Most diet products are highly over priced when you consider that you can replace them with a natural alternative which is not only much more affordable, but also has less side effects.

My Opinion:

As you can probably see from this article, I am not a huge fan of diet supplements, diet pills, or diet products. 

The reason why I share this information about how I feel about these products is that although all the information on this site is based on diligent research, it is, nevertheless, my opinion.  (see disclaimer). 

I feel that it is only fair to inform you that 'my opinion' regarding diet pills is biased.  Since this article is about a diet pill, it is biased.
