A Short Review of Garcinia Cambogia

While some studies of Garcinia cambogia and its active ingredient, hydroxycitric acid (HCA), showed that it can help reduce weight, there was only an extra loss of two pounds over the placebo, which could have been due to reduced calories and exercise. Studies did not find that it suppressed appetite.

On the positive side, there is evidence that it may help control blood glucose levels, lower cholesterol. speed metabolism and enhance athletic performance. However, it has side effects such as dizziness, dry mouth, headache, upset stomach or diarrhea. There have been no studies on long-term use effects or interaction with prescription drugs.
