On his television show, Dr. oz stated that any talk about research into the benefits of garcinia cambogia gets him excited. If you still have not heard about garcinia cambogia, here are some basic facts about it and also a summary of what Dr. Oz had to say about it on his television show.
Garcinia cambogia is a fruit that looks like a small pumpkin, but tastes sour like tamarind. It is native to South-east Asia, and has been used in cuisine there for a long time. It is mostly used to add a pleasant sourness to food, but has also been known for long to aid in digestion and weight loss.
Researchers have now researched into the weight loss properties of garcinia cambogia, and here is how Dr. Oz reviews it:
Garcinia cambogia, says Dr. Oz, could be the ‘magic ingredient’ that people have been looking for to help them lose weight without having to spend a lot of time exercising or dieting. Catering to the needs of those who have to conform to a very busy lifestyle, garcinia cambogia extract is a very easy and fast way to lose weight. On the Dr. Oz show, experts commented that unaccompanied by diet or exercise, people can expect to lose close to 4 pounds a month through garcinia cambogia extract. The extract prevents formation of fat in the body, which means already accumulated fat is burnt by the body, leading to weight loss.
Many advantages of garcinia cambogia extract as a quick and effective way to lose weight were talked about on the show. Dr. Oz made it a point to talk about how the herbal supplement is safe to take, as can be seen from how it has been used traditionally for a long time. However, he did caution that diabetes patients should be careful with the same, and pregnant mothers should also talk to their doctors before taking the extract.
On the Dr. Oz show, another wonderful property of garcinia cambogia was explained. It turns out that this miracle fruit can suppress sugar and carb cravings that arise out of stress and being too exhausted emotionally. Garcinia cambogia leads to the release of serotonin in the body, which makes you feel good, sleep better and not eat simply out of stress and not hunger.
Finally, Dr. Oz does not recommend any brands, but says that you should look for garcinia cambogia extract which has at least 50% of hca, mineral salts like potassium and calcium which make the extract effective, and no artificial fillers.
