Garcinia Cambogia is a supplement that many people use to help them to lose weight. The fruit is actually used in cooking in some parts of the world. In fact, it is even added to some snack foods in the western world. The supplement is thought by many doctors to be perfectly safe and highly effective. The supplement has never really been shown to be unsafe, according to any known studies.
Garcinia Cambogia’s modes of action are all safe and easy on the body’s systems. For one, it helps to inhibit your appetite. This means that you simply eat less. In addition, it helps to inhibit the formation of fat in the body. It also helps to boost mood. In addition to making you feel better, this can have beneficial effects for weight loss.
A better mood would reduce emotional eating. All of these modes of action are safer than the modes of action of many weight loss supplements. Other weight loss supplements often use various types of stimulants to boost activity levels, decrease appetite, and increase metabolism.
Of course, stimulants can have nasty side effects. Also, weight loss supplements that work by burning fat can cause overheating of the body.
Dr. Oz feels that Garcinia Cambogia is a very safe and effective weight loss supplement. In fact, he has gone as far as to say that it is “the holy grail of weight loss”. Dr. Oz sees Garcinia Cambogia as being a better weight loss supplement than anything else on the market. Clearly, he feels that it is safe for people to take.
A study examined the safety of Garcinia Cambogia. What the study found was definitely quite encouraging as far as safety shows. There was no indication of any adverse reactions. No one in the study seemed to have any detriment to their health from taking the supplement.
Also, there were no suspected side effects from taking Garcinia Cambogia! It would be hard to find any other sort of supplement or medication that does not cause some type of side effects.
Also, the fact that the fruit itself has been widely consumed for a very long period of time speaks to its safety. The supplement comes from an actual natural fruit that is edible. In Indonesia, the fruit is commonly cooked into dishes. It has a citrus-like quality to it, and it can actually be quite tasty. There have not been reported to be negative health effects from eating the fruit.
In addition, it is used in snack foods that are available in the western world. It is seen as safe enough to be added to foods in the western world. These snack foods can actually often be quite healthy to consume. Clearly, the fruit itself appears to be quite non-toxic indeed.
Some medications and supplements tout themselves as “all natural” when they really are only loosely derived from a natural source. This is not true with Garcinia Cambogia. Garcinia
Cambogia contains a chemical known as Hydroxycitric acid (HCA). HCA is what is the active ingredient in the weight loss supplements that come from Garcinia Cambogia.
HCA is also what is responsible for the mood elevating effects that Garcinia Cambogia is thought to have. The supplements simply are a concentrated version of what is in the fruit itself. So, in effect, taking the supplements can be no riskier than consuming this perfectly edible fruit that grows in parts of Asia.
However, to be sure that you are taking the supplement in the correct and safest way, follow dosage guidelines. About 250-1000 mg of HCA is recommended for most people each day. However, higher amounts have been shown to be safe for many people.
Also, certain groups of people should refrain from taking Garcinia Cambogia. Pregnant women and women who are nursing should avoid this supplement. Those with Alzheimer’s Disease and certain mental disorders should avoid it due to the effects on serotonin.
Those with low blood pressure should avoid Garcinia Cambogia due to its effect of lowering blood pressure. If you are taking any kind of medications, talk to your doctor before using Garcinia Cambogia. If you are not part of one of these specific groups of people, Garcinia Cambogia has been shown as quite safe to take.
