Garcinia Cambogia Extract Tested

It seems that there is always some flavor of the month when it comes to weight loss supplements. For most people, the Garcinia Cambogia extract would have appeared to be yet another pill to try since it appeared on the Dr Oz show. However, more than two years later, people are still raving about it so it would seem that it is here to stay.

The problem is that there are people who have not yet heard about it or are worried about it all being to good to be true.

The sad thing is that there are several brands out there that have jumped on the bandwagon since the Dr Oz show aired without any concern for how effective it is. This has led to some bad press so let’s dig a little deeper and find out what the real story is.

It Started At Dr. Oz Show

The expert on the Dr Oz show that first introduced the Garcinia Cambogia Extract, Dr Lindsey explained that it worked in a few different ways to promote weight loss. First as an agent to block the conversion of sugar to fat, then as an agent to increase the use of excess sugars as energy. In addition, it helps to slow down the rate at which sugar enters the blood and so you don’t have sugar highs and lows. According to her the extract has been proven safe.

Garcinia Cambogia Premium

Some healthy skepticism was warranted here so I decided that it was best to see for myself whether or not the supplement worked. I chose one of the more popular brands – Garcinia Cambogia Premium – the same type as the one Jamie Pressly was raving about. I liked what they offered – it ticked all the boxes in terms of what Dr Oz said was necessary, it clearly listed the ingredients and had a great refund policy that was easy to find out about. I also liked this brand because there was no other rubbish in the capsules, just Garcinia Cambogia Extract and some Potassium.

Results – actually, I was pleasantly surprised. I lost 4 pounds in the first month and didn’t really adjust my diet much. It does help to make you feel fuller and so it was easier to eat less. I also found that it didn’t make me grumpy and moody like so many of the other appetite suppressants had.

My conclusion – this works if you take some time and look for a good product. Putting in the effort upfront is definitely the way to go for those needing to see results.
