Reviews on the effect of Garcinia Cambogia on weight loss are completely inconsistent. Some reviews revealed that taking Garcinia Cambogia extract that contains 50% hydroxycitric acid (HCA) for 8-12 weeks doesn’t decrease fat breakdown or energy expenditure in overweight people. While others suggest that it absolutely improves weight loss when taken for 12 weeks. The use of a specific Garcinia Cambogia extract product containing about 60% HCA and above orally as recommended, 60 minutes before meals for 8 weeks, while consuming healthy diets, seems to improve weight loss more than just diet alone. Reasons for the inconsistent results might be the dose, duration of treatment, or formulation of Garcinia Cambogia extract used by the different users.
ConsumerLab.com selected 13 Garcinia Cambogia supplements/brands for reviews; seven contained only 14% to 81% of the listed amount of HCA, which is a plant compound believed to be important to Garcinia’s biological effects.
What Scientists said about Garcinia Cambogia
The use of Garcinia Cambogia extract, Hydroxycitric acid (HCA) from a tamarind fruit for weight-loss can only be considered to be effective if the quantity of the HCA is above 10%. With most manufactures of Garcinia Cambogia not willing to show sincerity to her consumers, who knows how many victims they have recorded? Secondly, where are the reviews of the considered victims? Dr. Oz recommended taking 500-1000mg before each meal. That means Garcinia Cambogia requires an empty stomach for absorption. I feel this important recommendation can be easily overlooked. But it’s very important if a positive result is expected. Aerobic exercise is very helpful to the fat-burning process, since Garcinia Cambogia facilitates the fat-burning by converting fats and every available carbohydrate to energy.
Cambogia Garcinia Reviews
Immediate effects observed: decrease in appetite and a bit more energy throughout the day. I did not lose weight while taking these pills, but they did give me a nice little boost for the slow afternoons

This product is amazing!! With moderate exercise and healthy eating habits I’ve lost about 25 lbs in just one month! Sure everyone’s body is different, but I’m ecstatic! Definitely worth a try 😀

It did not work as well as I thought it would but at least it did help me detox a little bit. Honestly, I was disappointed in the product.
