Garcinia Cambogia for Weight Loss: Fact or Fiction?

Garcinia Cambogia for Weight Loss: Fact or Fiction?

money in toiletIf you’re wondering about garcinia cambogia for weight loss, you may have been swept up in the hype surrounding this product – hype that was largely instigated by Dr. Oz, who called garcinia…

“The newest, fastest, fat buster.”

Yes, despite clinical evidence dating back to 1998 showing that it simply does not work. Like, at all.

A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association concluded…

 “Garcinia cambogia failed to produce significant weight loss and fat mass loss beyond that observed with placebo.”

In other words, it didn’t work any better than a sugar pill.

“But, but, but… Dr. Oz said it was good.”

Uh-huh. And Dr. Oz got his ass handed to him at a U.S. Senate Subcomittee in 2014, where he was accused of hyping weight loss miracles that simply did not have any supporting evidence to warrant the hype.

Clearly, this product is one of those that he hyped without merit. And no, in case you’re wondering… there is no new evidence that contradicts these earlier findings.

But say you’re not convinced.

Say you still want to try it for yourself, and judge the merits of garcinia cambogia for weight loss for yourself.

Fine.

But don’t bother with the plain stuff. You may as well flush your money straight down the toilet.

Instead, try something called, “Super Citrimax.”

The active ingredient in garcinia is something called “hydroxycitric acid” (or HCA) which is sold under the brand name “Citrimax.” Super Citrimax is a special, more potent form of HCA.

It, at least, has been proven moderately effectivive in a 2004 clinical study.

However, study participants were dieting (limited to 2,000 calories per day) and exercising (5 30-minute sessions of walking per week), so you can take Oz’s claim that this is a…

“… magic ingredient that lets you lose weight without diet and exercise”.

… and flush that right down the toilet as well.

And, if you don’t intend to diet or exercise moderately, don’t expect to acheive the same results (about 8 lbs. in 2 months for a 150 lbs woman, just under 11 pounds for a 200-lbs man).

Where Can You Buy This Stuff?

You can buy SuperCitrimax at a reputable online retailer like iHerb for just over $15/bottle.

If you expect to duplicate the results obtained by the study, you will need to use a dose identical to those used by the study participants (in addition to dieting and exercising like they were, of course). That dose is 2800 mg of active ingredient per day in 3 divided doses. That means 6 capsules daily of this product!
