Two of them showed weight loss of a few pounds over a period of 8 weeks (9, 10), but the other two showed no effect (11, 12). So… unfortunately, froster weight loss effects appear to be both weak and inconsistent. A review published in the Journal of Obesity in 2011 that looked at 12 clinical trials found that Garcinia Cambogia can increase weight loss by about 0. 88 kg, or 2 pounds, on average, over a period of several weeks (13).
I would say though, still, that this was probably the third most effective brand I've tried with regards to actual number of pounds lost. The most was with a brand called LipoVida -- but I literally wanted to vomit ever day that I took them. Plus I heard that 80 HCA wasn't actually legal or possible (I'm not an attorney or a doctorscientist, so don't quote me on that - just passing along what I heard) The best so far for actual weight loss for me plus no nausea has been Pure GCE (I ordered mine through the site 'bestgarciniacambogiapills' dot com.
Again, if you don't mind the jitters and all that jazz, it may be worth your time to check out the LipoVida brand. Otherwise, Pure GCE gets my vote. Good product except the product isn't the best.
I've tried a few different brands and this isn't the worst but it's not the best. Personally I would recommend another brand. The best one I've personally tried and it's worked well for me and my friends you can find here: www. buypuregarciniacambogiapillsonline. com I know they currently have a special offer on and you can get a free bottle, just pay the 4. 99 shipping fee which is an absolute bargain, much better value than this product and a much better quality product.
Hope this review helped.
But remember, this is a natural supplement that does not carry the risk of side effects that medications do. The absolute most important thing to look for in a Garcinia Cambogia supplement is the purity of the pill. The higher the HCA(hydroxycitric acid) concentration, the more mileage you are going to get out of the supplement.
All brands will contain some amount of the extract from the actual fruit, but the amount of the active substance can vary a lot. There are plenty of fly-by-night products around(pretty much all of the ones in local stores) that only offer a very subpar purity. Often times such supplements(like ones sold at WalMart) only contain 20 or less HCA- even when they are marked as higher(this was the conclusion of a recent study). Such low-grade products(like the ones from GNC usually) are basically scams, replete with fillers and additives and dont do much to give you the true benefits of the natural extract.
One of the biggest advantages of GC is its ability to prevent carbs from becoming fatty acids once inside the body- which is a result of the HCAs effects. Remember to take the dosage that is recommended on the bottle and do not deviate from it. The best thing to go with is the Pure Garcinia Cambogia Extract brand, as these supplements contain a verified 60 HCA concentration and are 100 pure GC(the other 40 being other natural GC compounds such as Gorikapuli).
These were the results of the 12 week study, which was published in The Journal of The American Medical Association (a highly respected scientific journal): Heymsfield, et al. 1998 As you can see, both groups lost weight. But the group taking Garcinia Cambogia extract actually lost less weight (3. 2 kg 7 pounds) than the placebo group (4. 1 kg 9 pounds). The researchers also looked at body fat percentage. The placebo group lost 2. 16, while the group taking Garcinia Cambogia lost only 1. However, the difference was not statistically significant, meaning that the results could have been due to chance.
More Studies In another study with 89 overweight females, Garcinia Cambogia did lead to 1. 3 kg (2. 8 pounds) more weight loss compared to placebo, over a period of 12 weeks. They found no difference in appetite between groups (8). Overall, I looked at 4 more studies.
