Details about the garcinia fruit

Garcinia Cambogia FruitGarcinia gummi-gutta is a yellowish fruit, pumpkin-shaped fruit, also named gambooge, or souring fruit. This fruit is grown in Asia and Africa, necessiting a moist environment. There are also different variations of this fruit, with colors ranging from green, to red, to yellow.

People use the asam fruit (another name of Garcinia) to prepare various foods (consider curry, various food fillings, fish foods): garcinia is an essential ingredient, with a souring flavor.

Along with the nutrition use as an ingredient, Garcinia has several medicinal and treatment features. Extracts from Gambooge are used in various food preservation and preparation methods, or as a purgative, natural laxative (to treat constipation).

Using the Garcinia Cambogia Extract

The Garcinia Cambogia extract (also called HCA, hydroxycitric acid) was deemed by Dr. Oz*** as a highly recommended supplement for any weight loss effort.

Dr. Oz researched this fruit, together with other health and wellness specialists (as Dr. Julie Chen), and concluded that Garcinia is a revolutionary and amazing supplement to introduce and use in the daily nutrition.

The Gambooge extract acts as an appetite suppressor, controlling the food craving. Also, the extract blocks the forming of fat cells and decreases the amount of belly fat, while increasing the lean muscles mass. The garcinia fruit, ingested, helps decrease the levels of bad cholesterol and lowers the insulin resistance levels as well.

The daily dosage of Garcinia extract is to be consumed on an empty stomach, preferably around one hour before any meal.


Asam fruit side effects

There are several side effects that appear when trying to ingest the raw extract of the fruit.

For example, nausea and stomach discomfort, because some people cannot digest the fruit properly.

Then there’s headache, because the body has to adapt to the faster process of fat burning, accelerated by the fruit extract.

The extract isn’t recommended from pregnant women or when breast feeding, because it can harm the baby.

These side effects vary from person to person, and only if the daily dosage surpasses the recommended figures. Anything from 500 to 3000 mg of HCA / day is outside the daily dosage limit.


Don’t get scammed!

Now, if the extract was endorsed by Dr. Oz and several other nutrition experts, it doesn’t mean that what products are comercialized via media or in shops are the real deal.

How can you check if the product you’re buying has the real Garcinia ingredients? Do you believe what Dr. Oz recommended as a weight loss supplement?

First of all, make sure that the bottle label contains the HCA value (in a 50%+ percent). The product should also contain other elements, such as calcium, potassium, other vitamins. It shouldn’t contain any other artificial ingredients, fillers, etc.

The extract was tested by human clinic trials and especially designed, so its potency and effectiveness is guaranteed.

The Garcinia extract comes in a 90 capsule bottle and is available to be purchased online.
