Is pure garcinia cambogia is a useful supplement for weight loss or just another fraud?

Doubt any usefulness. Helpful weight loss diets have natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and leafy lettuce (little or no salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, but surely avoid sugar and simple starches.

Thoughts on weight loss supplement garcinia cambogia? Helping but I want to make sure its not doing serious damage

Lucky you! If it is helping, that is wonderful. Often it does nothing more than use up your money. As far as serious damage goes, it has not been tested over time or in a controlled manner enough to say. This is always the problem with natural supplements, since they are never held to FDA standards, even when they are tested. I have heard no bad reports about garcinia cambogia except for it not helping. Read more...
Don't use it. Garcinia cambogia is in most weight loss supplements, and can cause liver failure.It was also used in Hydroxycut which was taken off the market as people died from using it. I see a handful of patients per month with abnormal liver tests after using this medicine. I would NOT recommend it. There is no "magic pill" for weight loss. Diet and exercise remain the #1 way to lose weight and keep it off. Read more...

I'm a bit chunky, extreme difficulty w weight loss. Heard of natural supplement Garcinia cambogia, it claims to greatly increase weight loss. Thoughts?

Not impressed. As a doctor who specializes in herbal medicine I'm very open to the use of herbs but am not impressed with Garcinia Cambodia; there have been several research studies on it and most show it is has minimal if any benefits.

What I suggest. Hi. Take the $$$ you'd spend on that snake oil and give to a worthy charity, so it actually does some good. Then adopt a healthy lifestyle. Eat healthily, exercise regularly, and don't smoke. There are FDA-approved medications for weight loss with documented safety and efficacy if that's the direction you want to go in.

Garcinia cambogia pure extract 1600mg with 60% hca extract for maximum weight loss livetru nutrition (351)" should I buy this pill for weight loss?

Waste your money. Why would you waste money on snake oil? This product will not in any way lead you to real or lasting weight loss. It is just like every other fake product sold only in 'supplement' stores. If there truly was a real weight loss drug that worked every news channel would be discussing it and every physician would be prescribing it daily. This is a product designed only to make money for the producer. Read more...

Is taking pure green coffee bean extract and garcinia cambogia extract good and safe for weight loss?

Diet Frauds. Nope. It is purely one more in a long line or products designed to take money away from those who still hope for some magic way to lose weight. Caffeine will not lead to real or long term weight loss. This newest fad is nothing more than 'snake oil'. Read more...
