Garcinia Cambogia For Teens

When it comes to the most popular supplements to help you lose weight, Garcinia Cambogia Extract ranks top of most people’s lists. The extract even has Dr Oz’s stamp of approval. On hearing about it, I decided to do my own homework as to whether or not it was good for young adults and teenagers as well. My research turned up some interesting facts and has convinced me that this extract is the safest and most effective for teenagers. Here’s what I learned:

Garcinia Cambogia – What Is That?

Garcinia Cambogia For TeensOkay, so unless you are from somewhere in Asia, you’ve probably never heard of it. It is actually a fruit that looks a little like a pumpkin – but much smaller. In fact, it has been used for years in Malaysia as an ingredient in soups that are eaten just before the main meal. Ever wondered why you don’t see a lot of overweight Malaysians? Now you know.

Hydroxy- What?

Hydroxycitric Acid is what makes this such an effective weight loss aid. This is found in the fruit’s rind.

Wanted A Safe Way To Lose Weight As A Teenager?

Let’s face it, going on diet is no fun at all – you can’t meet your friends for a burger at the mall and you miss out on a lot of fun activities as a result. That’s probably why diets very seldom work. Well, here is the solution – the Garcinia Cambogia will help to curb your appetite so you will naturally eat less. You do have to do your bit and try to eat better but the extract makes that a lot easier.

There is no more feeling miserable and hungry on diet anymore – the extract will help with the hunger pangs and help you to feel better too. No more dieting blues for you. All you have to do is start waiting for the compliments to roll in on your weight loss.

Personally, I’ keep them guessing as to what my secret is – Garcinia Cambogia extract is so popular today that your parents might want to take yours for themselves!

How It Works – The Clip Noteslose-weight-fast

  • It reduces the fat your body makes.
  • It decreases your appetite.
  • You not only feel full more quickly but also for longer periods.

How It Works – The Full Explanation

  • The body needs Citrate Lyase in order to convert carbohydrates into fat. HCA stops this enzyme from working and so the body needs to burn the carbs instead and you have more energy. It is also good for your health as the levels of triglycerides and LDL cholesterol in the blood drop.
  • HCA also amps up your body’s production of serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter and it is what is often used in happy pills. If you are an emotional or stress eater, this is going to help you out. You are going to feel better and less likely to want to binge. It also makes coping a lot easier.

The Proof

Of course, you don’t have to just take my word for it, there are a lot of studies that have been done on Garcinia Cambogia. In one study, some participants took HCA at 1320mg daily for two months. All the participants were put on the same calorie restricted diet. Those taking the supplement lost more than double what the others did. In other studies, weight loss has been tripled. It’s hard not to like G.C. now, isn’t it?

Garcinia Cambogia For TeensSafety First

There are some rules though:

  • Don’t exceed the recommended maximum dose. It is safe within these parameters.
  • It is not advisable for a woman who is pregnant or nursing to take it.
  • If you are on some form of medication for lowering you cholesterol or blood sugar, you need to consult your doctor before taking this drug.

Recommended Dosage

Look for a supplement that has at least 50% HCA – anything below that is a waste of time. You would take between 500mh and 1000mg at least half an hour before each main meal. Take with a glass of water. Do not take more than 3000mg a day – you can get too much of a good thing. Look for a supplement that is as pure as possible. Just the extract and maybe some Potassium but no other ingredients.

What To Expect

Teenagers can safely expect to lose at least 2-4 pounds in the first month, with no other changes to their lifestyle. If you feel you would like to lose more, start a healthy eating plan and also start an exercise program.

Take the capsules a half an hour before you eat your main meals and make sure that you do not take more than 3000mg daily. If you are on some form of medication that you take regularly, check with your health care practitioner before you start taking this.

That said, this has proven to be a safe and effective supplement in doses up to 3000mg a day.  If your parents want to check it out, refer them to Dr Oz’s program or the tons of articles online.
