Now that garcinia cambogia has been in the news and in the markets for awhile there is much that has been learned about this new weight loss supplement. For some people it has worked great and for others it has not worked at all and there are some very good reasons for this.
As you know when Dr. Oz first introduced us to garcinia he spoke about a few key factors to ensure your safety and results but us as consumers tend to got a bit overboard looking for the most effective, pure garcinia cambogia supplements available and this then sparks waves of different types and every manufacturer telling you theirs is the best one to buy.
Which Pure Garcinia Cambogia is Best?
Out of all the different types of garcinia out there to choose from, let’s look at what you need to do to ensure you getting maximum results for the best way to lose weight.
High Levels of HCA Warnings!!
HCA 50% – The doctor recommended dosage for garcinia is 50% – 60% HCA (hydroxycitric acid) and not one percent more. HCA is the key component in garcinia that blocks carbohydrates in the liver and prevents energy to be turned into fat, forcing the body to burn fat that is already in the body, thus making you lose weight.
At a strength of 50% there is no tissue damage in the liver and it’s consider safe to use. As you go higher in HCA strength there are concerns about higher toxicity levels (ethanol and dexamethasone) induced by HCA and did you know that there is NO solid evidence to support it’s safety in the liver with higher dosages?
Data provided by Newtree Inc. (a South Korean company) in the United States showed that many of the supplements on the market today actually tested HCA levels between 1% – 60% “hydroxyl citric acid” even though the labels indicate a higher dosage. In fact one company in California was caught selling garcinia online as 50% HCA when in fact it contained just traces (<.6%) of HCA.
Who do you trust?
What is know is that taking garcinia with 50% – 60% hydroxycitric acid is the safest way to lose weight and the best place to buy garcinia cambogia online is always for Canada because Health Canada has very strict guidelines and what you read on the label has to be accurate.
How to Spot Pure Garcinia Cambogia
- Look for “Made in Canada” on the label to ensure product credibility
- Look for Potassium calcium and chromium on the label.
- Look for a maximum of 60% HCA on the label.
The Garcinia 1300 in Canada label indicates serving size as 2 caps which means 2 caps a day BUT not at the same time which is understandably misleading. What it means is to take 1000mg twice a day for a total of 2000mg/day.
The reason doctors (like Dr. Oz on his TV show) recommend taking calcium with garcinia is the fact that calcium has many weight management attributes on it’s own beside just health benefits for bones.
If you were told that calcium can “slightly” reduce the effects of HCA, you are correct! BUT calcium also plays a key role on boosting your metabolism which burns fat. This far out weights the minor effects on HCA and it’s this reason that calcium is found in almost all garcinia supplements.
A great reference on this topic is a book called “The Abs Diet for Women” where the editor-in-chief David Zinczenko explains the key role calcium plays on weight loss.
NOTE: Stay away from garcinia mixed with other ingredients! For example products like garcinia detox and garcinia cleanse as these products tend to originate for sources in the USA where there is question about garcinia strength.
Also when garcinia is mixed as peer ingredient it may not be pure at all and is often times synthetic meaning it’s chemical created in a lab to simulate the effects of pure garcinia cambogia.
Stick to these guidelines and you will have better success with weight loss using pure garcinia cambogia.
