Garcinia: What It Is & Why It’s Popular
It’s just a plant. Found naturally in India and Asia, garcinia has been eaten over there in its raw form for millennia.
Recently (in just the past few years), garcinia finally made its way into the eye of the western world… and it’s become significantly more popular over here than it ever was over there. The amount of users who take the extract supplement every day has very quickly climbed into the millions.
It’s not popular because of the taste. Truth be told, we’ve tried it, and it’s nothing to write home about.
But when taken in capsule form, users can do nothing else but swallow a single capsule every day (tasteless) to slowly lose weight.
Ding ding ding! That’s why it’s so popular – easy, passive weight loss. In fact, it’s been featured multiple times on the “big” primetime shows (like Dr. Oz), and doctors are even starting to recommend it to patients directly.
Something this big has to be more than smoke and mirrors, right? The answer is yes – it’s not a hyped up miracle pill, and there is science to back up how users are seeing these weight loss results.
It works in two simple ways
But first, we’ll start with the one ingredient that makes it all possible – hydroxycitric acid (HCA).
This is a compound that’s found almost exclusively in garcinia cambogia. Plants will usually have a 20% to 30% concentration of it, but when we get ourselves garcinia extract, we can go all the way up to 50% to 60% (the optimal dose for human weight loss).
Here’s how garcinia extract (and the HCA within) is actually going to make you lose weight.
Way #1 – Makes existing fat an energy source
When your body needs to expend energy, it pulls that energy from somewhere. Usually, the necessary energy is taken from the food that you eat. Your fat stores are only used if the situation is dire (like you’re starving in the wilderness or you’re running a marathon).
This is why it’s so difficult to lose weight – your body doesn’t want to lose weight. It wants to keep its fat stores, even though they serve no real purpose in our modern society.
HCA to the rescue!
In a nutshell, hydroxycitric acid forces your body to rely more on your fat stores for energy and less on the food you just ate. You end up burning more fat off of your body without actually doing anything differently – no weird meals, extreme workouts, or anything of that nature.
Just fat loss because you’re taking energy from another source. Simple.
In addition to making you lose weight, garcinia cambogia…
Way #2 – Makes you not eat
Not in an unhealthy way – just in an “oh, I’m full… I think I’ll stop eating” kind of way. Of course, you can always continue to keep putting food in your mouth, but if you’re trying to lose weight, garcinia can be the “golden ticket” to being able to just stop.
It’s not entirely known why garcinia has this effect on us – however, the results have been confirmed over and over again, and from empirical evidence, we see that garcinia does in fact help with appetite suppressant. You’ll still get hungry – everyone needs to eat – but you’ll be ready to stop at your body’s natural level.
If you take garcinia, what should you expect?
That’s a good question. Some fat loss supplements are over the top in how they work (increasing your internal temperature to the point where you’re sweating, etc.), and others seem like they are doing nothing at all…
…garcinia is the best of both worlds. Physically, you won’t feel any different than if you weren’t taking it. The HCA works “in the background” – all you have to do is make sure that you’re consistent with taking it every day and you’ll see the number on the scale drop without feeling a thing.
Over time, that is. Nothing can get rid of fat instantly besides surgery. Get at least one bottle and see how you’re doing a month in – most users report 5-10 lbs lost in the first month with no changes to diet or exercise.
Side effects (aka, “is this thing safe?”)
The only side effect of garcinia cambogia is an upset stomach… if you take it on an empty stomach. It’s a fat soluble compound, so make sure that you take it with a meal.
Other than that, there are no side effects… and taking it is super simple. As long as you get the extract in the form of capsules, all you have to do is take one with your breakfast (recommended) or lunch.
So yes, garcinia is 100% safe to take. Long term dosing has not been studied much, but as a user trying to get the weight loss benefits, you’ll only have to take it for 1-3 months to see the full effects, and that range has been confirmed as safe.
Who should get garcinia?
As we’ve said over and over and over again, this isn’t a magical pill that will bring you from overweight to fitness model in a night. It’s more of an aid.
Ask yourself this – would shedding 10, 15, or 20 pounds of fat have a significant effect on your physique? If yes, get garcinia. Nothing can replace diet and fitness completely, but garcinia can be the quick shortcut to “just looking good”.
