Here are just a few of them:
A study involving both rats and humans called ”An overview of the safety and efficacy of a novel, natural(-)-hydroxycitric acid extract (HCA-SX) for weight management“ was published in the Journal of Medicine. Looking at the human part of the study, this was an 8 week trial with 60 people involved. Everyone was given 2,000 calories per day, walked 30 minutes a day, 5 days per week and were randomly given either a placebo or about 750mg HCA. At the end of the study, these results were observed:
- - 5.4% reduction in body weight
- - 5.2% reduction in body mass index (BMI)
- - Significantly decreased food intake
- - Significantly decreased total cholesterol
- - Significantly decreased LDL (bad cholesterol)
- - Significantly increased HDL (good cholesterol)
- - Significantly decreased triglycerides
- - Significantly decreased leptin levels
- - Significantly increased serotonin levels
Note. Leptin is a hormone made inside fat cells. Leptin plays a role in hunger.
A study published in the Asia Pacific Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 2007 involved 50 obese women (18-75 years of age) who were randomly split into a placebo and Garcinia group.
The Garcinia group received 1.15 grams before meals, three times per day (3.45 grams total per day).
All the women in this trial were tracked for 2 months after being placed on a 1,000 calorie/day diet. Body fat was determined using skin fold analysis and bioelectric impedance.
At the end of the study, women getting Garcinia lost significantly more weight (6.1 lbs) than women who received the placebo (3 lbs).
Which supplement is the best to take?
While there are many Garcinia Cambogia supplements on the market, I highly recommend using a supplement that contains at least 50% HCA (60% is preferred) and is made without the use of additional ingredients.
What do other customer’s think?
Megan noted, “I’ve been taking these pills for almost three weeks. First thing I noticed, I am sleeping more soundly at night. Previously I had been getting around 3-4 hours of sleep per night and now I am getting almost a full 8! I also have lost 8.5 lbs, 1.5 inches off my waist, 1 inch off each thigh, 1.5 inches off each arm, and 1 inch from my chest. I am truly grateful to have found out about this because cortisol is the #1 enemy for women and when you’re stressed and not sleeping properly the cortisol levels just go up. I started going to the gym 3 times a week and don’t plan to stop.”
Monica writes, “I call it my motivation pill. I’ve been taking Garcinia for two weeks now and already lost 7 pounds. I’m a horrible nighttime snacker, but Garcinia cuts the cravings. I usually take my last pill before dinner and I’m fine for the rest of the night. I think at first it was just in my head, but after the first week I noticed a physical difference.”
Travis Wilson from Kansas City lost 130 pounds using Garcinia Cambogia.
“I have talked several close friends and family members into trying Garcinia Cambogia, too, and all of them have started to lose a few pounds a week without making any other changes. Once they see it working, they have begun to eat better and try to piggyback on the success that it starts for them, but it’s the extract that kicks things off. Do you need to eat less and better? YES! Do you need to move around more? YES. Does this help you get started? MOST DEFINITELY!”1
As a Garcinia Cambogia user, Kristen was finally able to mitigate her association between emotions and destructive eating habits:
“I’m a HUGE stress eater and put on a bit of weight when I moved to a new town for my work. I’ve been on GC for 15 days now and noticed way less cravings. I’ve already lost 4 lbs so you can imagine how thrilled I am for these next few weeks. I finally have time to mix in exercise, so this finally has me optimistic about getting my belly flat again.”
