(Newswire.net -- May 2, 2013) Denver, Co -- Dr. Oz, the popular host of the daytime talk show host who took the coveted Oprah Winfrey time slot, has created buzz in the health world after he endorsed the then unheard of Garcinia Cambogia extract, which has now become a global phenomenon, flying off health store shelves and leaving stores out of stock and people out of luck. Like any breakout discovery in the weight loss world, questions are being raised about the effectiveness and safety of Garcinia Cambogia, and for good reason. With few to no regulations by the FDA, it is crucial that people understand exactly what is going into their body and why.
Garcinia Cambogia is a small native fruit to the islands of Indonesia. It has been used for centuries in ethnic food and is now gaining attention because of its extract’s ability to suppress appetite when it is taken before meals. The fruit’s extract is comprised of hydroxycitric acid (HCA). In recent studies, HCA has been shown to help people lose weight faster without altering anything about their diet or exercise plan because not only does it suppress appetite, but it actually blocks fat as well.
According to Dr. Oz’s website, taking Garcinia Cambogia with HCA may also improve sleep and elevate mood because of the elevated levels of serotonin that are produced in the body in response to the extract. When taken in appropriate amounts, Garcinia Cambogia extract (or GCE) can help people lose weight (Dr. Oz notes 14 pounds in 8 weeks) more than twice as quickly as people who do not take the extract.
So what is the Dr. Oz dosage? GCE is safe and effective when 500mg – 1000mg are taken before each meal. No more than 3000mg should be taken in a 24-hour period.
It is also important to make sure that when purchasing Garcinia Cambogia extract the ingredients are clearly listed (no fillers, no artificial ingredients) and that there is at least 50% HCA. While there are many safe places to buy Garcinia Cambogia, there are just as many companies that are not regulated and who do not follow safe practices when formulating their products. Be sure to always purchase any health supplement from a trusted source, such as GNC, Elite Gold Solutions, or Earth’s Design.
