Garcinia Cambogia extract is derived from the rind of the garcinia cambogia, a small pumpkin-shaped fruit. Our powdered garcinia cambogia extract contains 60% hydroxycitric acid (HCA), the active ingredient that may help with weight loss. HCA works by promoting thermogenesis to help block fat and suppress your appetite. It can also increase serotonin levels and may improve mood and sleeping patterns.
How to Take Garcinia Cambogia
The recommended dosage of garcinia cambogia extract is 500 to 1000 mg (approximately ¼ tsp) ingested orally 30 minutes before each meal; it is also important to take no more than 3000 mg total per day to minimize the risk of the side effects. Possible side effects include nausea, discomfort and headaches.
We recommend mixing the powder with water, juice, milk or a smoothie. Combine garcinia cambogia extract with a healthy diet and regular exercise to maximize weight loss.
It is best to avoid garcinia cambogia if pregnant or breastfeeding.
Garcinia Cambogia Benefits
1) Weight-Loss: A 2005 study published in the journal Mutation Research examined people taking hydroxycitric acid (HCA) supplementation as part of a weight-loss program with healthy eating and regular exercise. The average participant in the study lost an average of four pounds per month.
2) Ward Off Depression: Serotonin is a neurotransmitter released by the brain that is associated with improving feels of well-being, and supporting restful sleep. A 2001 study published in the journal of Research Communications in Molecular Pathology and Pharmacology found that HCA increases serotonin release in the rat brain cortex.
What Experts Say
