Garcinia Cambogia is a plant native to India and some areas of Asia. More specifically it is a fruit that has been used for both appetite suppression and increased energy metabolism. As part of the citrus family, many people have become interested in this fruit and its potential to help weight loss.


Garcinia Cambogia has one main ingredient: HCA. HCA is Hydroxycitric Acid. This ingredient is what makes Garcinia Cambogia an ingredient in many dietary and weight loss supplements.

Product Features

The Hydroxycitric Acid found in Garcinia Cambogia may have several different effects on the body. The most notable of these is it may inhibit the uptake of carbohydrates that are stored in the body as fat. By prohibiting the fat storage, the carbs are burned as energy thereby increasing energy levels and decreasing fat levels. HCA is thought to prevent cravings for sugar heavy and carbohydrate heavy foods, balance the blood sugar levels, and increase the sertonin levels in the brain which signal to us that we are full faster.

There are no known side effects for healthy adults, but for children, women who are pregnant or nursing and those with diabetes or Alzheimer’s disease, this is likely not a safe supplement to take. This is because of the decreased blood sugar and increased acetylcholine in the brain, which is known to be safe for healthy people.

Studies have been and are continue to be conducted on the fruit. So far, the studies have been inconclusive when it comes to being able to show the true benefits. Some studies have shown weight loss when using Garcinia Cambogia as compared to a placebo, while others have shown there is no remarkable difference. In either case, the fruit has been used for centuries as a weight loss aid.

Depending on the merchant and if you purchase Garcinia Cambogia alone or as part of another supplement, you will be able to find it at a relatively inexpensive price. Generally speaking, you will spend about $8 per month on the supplement and that is an incredible price for the benefits it claims to have. You will find Garcinia Cambogia as part of the ingredient list for many weight loss supplements on the market today.

  • Helps regulate blood sugar naturally.
  • Helps to reduce cravings.


  • Inconclusive studies to prove benefits.
  • May harm those who are diabetic or have Alzheimer’s.
  • Daily dosages differ from product to product and have not been completely established.


The good thing about Garcinia Cambogia is that is an all natural approach to weight loss, and is safe for the majority of adults to take. The bad thing is the fact that there are contradicting studies when it comes to whether or not it will work effectively for many, and it may be harmful to those with diabetes or Alzheimer’s. If you are looking to take a weight loss supplement, this is a great one in terms of price, but you may want to look to others that include Garcinia Cambogia as part of the formula.

    I took garcinia cambogia and colon cleanser one of each in the morning and in the evening. It’s worked for me. I lost about 5 pounds my first week. And the second week I lost like 9 pounds. Im on my third week now. And to be honest I feel fantastic minus the part about pooping more frequently. But otherwise it’s pretty chill. So hopefully my comment can help all you dudes and dudettes that know how real the struggle is. :)

    I bought this product back in November. I believe this product is a fake. Started taking pills right away. I was on 2000 or less calorie intake every day. Also I walk every day at least 2 to 3 miles 5 times a week. Took pills for three months with no weight loss at all. I have three bottles left and quit taking them a month ago. Very unhappy. I would send the remaining pills back and would like money refunded. Please send address son I can get my money back. Thank you

    I have been taking Garcinia cambogia for almost 4 weeks now and I have noticed some increased energy at first but the longer i took it the more i noticed I wasnt loosing any weight, I also noticed that my hair has started to thin out alot. So I started looking for more reviews about Garcinia Cambogia and all the recent reviews i found were negative. I dont recommend to spend your money on this product. I guess the only way to loose weight is the old fashion way. There are no short cuts.

    I researched this and did order one of these products. None of the good ones are less than $40. You have to do your research and make sure you use one that has the correct ingredients and no fillers. I hope this helps some people. If you want something that really helps it does not come cheap. I have been happy with one I ordered.



    Which did you end up picking?

    I took Garcinia Cambogia over a period of several months. I cannot really say that it had a major impact on my weight…perhaps about 5 pounds. But a more alarming issue arose…during that period, my PSA blood test changed from 4.3 to 11.3. The only variable in my routine was taking Garcinia Cambogia. The doctor had me cease this supplement and retest a month later… my PSA dropped back to 3.4. While correlation is not causation, persons taking this supplement may want to watch their PSA blood test.

    Slim 4 life has been working for me. I’ve been on it since october12013 and lost 22
    Pounds so far. It’s strict, but they have snacks that are actually good.



    I am trying the nutri system D, so far after one week lost 3 lbs. may not be much but it is to me. blood sugars are coming down also. really shows you just how much you should be eating. will continue until I lose 20 lb



    I took green coffee bean and nothing happened. I have pre diabetes Not good for diabetics. There is no magic pill. Eat a healthy diet with fruits and vegetables, avoid process and refined foods, exercise
