Has anyone tried Garcinia Cambogia does it work

Recommended Posts

Here is a link to more information. http://www.ask.com/wiki/Gambooge And below is an excerpt.

Some things I noticed was the word 1-Purgative, 2-the fact that studies found only short term benefits yet some products with it in were removed from the market, 3- then of course the Hepatotoxicity. I'm not a doctor and perhaps the info here is not complete but it did influence what I thought of it.

For myself I know there's other options out there to make you feel "full" and have less side effects. Like fresh juice from a juicer before a meal.

No I haven't tried it but I'm glad you brought it up- I learned something.

Traditional medicine

Aside from its use in food preparation and preservation, extracts of G. cambogia are sometimes used in traditional medicine as purgatives.

[edit] Weight loss

Gambooge extracts are an ingredient in some herbal weight loss, appetite suppressant, and energy products. [4]A meta-analysis found a possible short-term small effect (under 1 kilogram), but also adverse effects that led to one preparation being withdrawn from the market.[5][6]

A 1998 randomized controlled trial looked at the effects of garcinia as a potential “antiobesity agent” in 135 people. The conclusion from this trial was that the pills were no better than placebo for weight and fat loss. [7]

[edit] Hepatotoxicity

Hepatotoxicity(liver toxicity) from weight-loss supplements which contain extracts of Garcinia cambogia has been reported.[6]
