From the Dr Oz Site:The HCA extract from garcinia cambogia supplement may aid in weight loss by doing two things: It helps to block fat, and it suppresses your appetite.
What Is Garcinia Cambogia Extract?
Garcinia Cambogia is a small, pumpkin-shaped fruit, sometimes called tamarind. Though native to Indonesia, it is also grown in India, Southeast Asia, and West and Central Africa. It has long been used in traditional South Asian dishes, including curries and chutneys. Many also use the fruit for curing fish and preservation.
Adding this ingredient to meals is considered to be effective in making meals more "filling." In some villages in Malaysia, garcinia is used to make a soup that is eaten before meals for weight loss because of garcinia's appetite-blocking abilities.
This plant offers one of the least expensive herbal supplements on the market. The ingredient from the rind of the fruit could hasten your weight-loss efforts. The natural extract is called hydroxycitric acid (HCA), and researchers claim that HCA can double or triple one's weight loss.
With proper weight-loss efforts (dieting and exercising), the average person taking HCA lost an average of four pounds a month.
Garcinia may also be great for emotional eaters. Those who participated in the study showed an increase in their serotonin levels; hence, it may also improve mood and sleeping patterns.
Is It Safe?
The plant and its fruit have been eaten safely for years. The HCA extract is also likely safe in normal amounts.
However, don't take this supplement if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. If you are taking a diabetic medication (like insulin or glyburide), talk to a doctor before taking this to make sure this is right for you, otherwise this supplement may allow your blood sugar to fall even lower than normal.
Those taking a statin (a cholesterol-lowering drug) should use this supplement with caution because it can increase the risk of harmful side effects, like rhabdomyolysis or muscle degradation. Those with Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia shouldn't take HCA because of the risk of worsening dementia.
How Much Should I Take?
You can buy garcinia cambogia extract in health food stores or online. When looking for a supplement, look for "garcinia cambogia" or "GCE" with at least 50% HCA (active ingredient potassium). Some experts believe that the newly available HCA potassium salts are more effective than the other HCA formulations.
Take 500-1000 mg before each meal, and make sure to take no more than 3000 mg total per day.
When looking for supplements, make sure you can see and review the list of ingredients. Do not purchase if you can’t see any ingredients. Furthermore, there should be no fillers or artificial ingredients.
With no other changes, you may lose 2-4 pounds within one month. However, it is highly recommended that the person taking HCA also find time for moderate exercise a few times a week and eat properly portioned meals. Let the power of the HCA supplement work along with making healthier choices.

Garcinia Cambogia is a yellowish, pumpkin-shaped superfruit found in Asia that has been used traditionally by many cultures for centuries to address inflammation, gastrointestinal distress, hemorrhoids, rheumatism, women's menstrual issues, and many digestive issues.
Commonly known as "gamboge," "brindal berry," or "Malabar Tamarind," the rind of the Garcinia Cambogia fruit contains potent natural compounds called Hydroxycitric acids (HCAs) that are thought to support healthy weight management by supporting appetite control, disrupting fat production, supporting healthy fat metabolism, and supporting healthy insulin function.
Some Asian cultures also use Garcinia Cambogia in their traditional curries and other popular dishes because they believe that the sour flavor of the fruit is what activates and supports the digestive system.
