Garcinia Cambogia is a fruit of the citrus family. It’s grown in SouthEast Asia. The fruit takes a small pumpkin shape when mature. The rind of this fruit has hydroxycitric acid [HCA] that for a very long time, has been used for cooking purposes. The same fruit has also been used in making a weight loss supplement, in form of a pill or powder.
According to some researchers, the organic acid contained in this product affects your metabolism by way of feeling full and lack of appetite. However, this is yet to be confirmed although the study had positive results with some animals. Secondly, there has been conflicting evidence on positive effects of the product on weight loss as there has been no remarkable results yet obtained. Thirdly, the fact that the product speeds metabolism contradicts itself in that when tested on mice they tended to increase their fat metabolism. But the fact that the supplement has positive effect on athletics has been partially confirmed as true.
HCA is a drug like product, which can have negative or positive interactions with any other medication. It is therefore advisable to consult your doctor in case you are under other medications before you start on the product.
The fact that HCA is a natural supplement does not mean that it is all safe. This is according to the Food and Drug Administration. Some natural plants are medications themselves. Others have proved poisonous and can negatively react with any other medications. Surprisingly, some food Supplements including garcinia cambogia are never approved, checked, or even tested by FDA. Therefore, the effectiveness and safety of these food supplements are never confirmed before they reach the consumer.
It is claimed that one of the garcinia cambogia product was once discovered to have caused problems of the liver. Some research follow-ups later proved that this product could cause serious liver damage that can lead to emergency transplants. Your doctor can recommend you on this.
Long Term Use
Researchers have not yet confirmed the safety and effectiveness of this supplement for any longer than 12 weeks. It is yet to be studied. Note that its use is not regulated meaning it can be overused.
According to the FDA, any drug like product, be it man made or natural, can cause side effects.
Concerns have been raised on serious side effects that can come with the use of HCA. These are; liver failure or damage, digestive problems, dizziness, fatigue, loss of appetite and anxiety. Other side effects include skin rashes, headaches, dry mouth, and diarrhea.
The FDA recommend that you think twice before you decide to use anything that claims to be free or work faster than normal in reducing weight. This is because what you think is cheap could end up being expensive. The best weight loss plan is one that involves good diet and exercises.
