Can this supplement be taken by everyone?
This supplement cannot be taken by everyone as Garcinia Cambogia (Malabar tamarind/ brindle berry) contains hydroxycitric acid along with polyphenols, luteolin, and kaempferol which has side effects. It leads to headaches, nausea, dizziness and dry mouth.
Garcinia cambogia may cause a decrease in blood sugar levels & increase in the level of acetylcholine in the brain, hence people who have diabetes & Alzheimer's disease/dementia shouldn't take Garcinia Cambogia It's also not safe during pregnancy or while breastfeeding. It may interfere with the following medications & supplements too like iron, potassium, calcium, antidepressants, statins, montelukast (Singular) and warfarin (Coumadin).
Garcinia cambogia isn't monitored by the FDA for safety and effectiveness, hence the supplement should be taken only after discussing with their doctors. Garcinia cambogia as a supplement is a good Nutra product too, but as per my advice, losing weight naturally through exercise, proper diet & a healthy lifestyle pattern is the key to success.
How long does it take for its effect to be seen?
On average, Garcinia Cambogia has been shown to cause weight loss of about 2 pounds (0.88 kg)more than a placebo, over a period of 2-12 weeks. It also depends & varies from person to person & how regular and honestly is the supplement consumed.
Since Garcinia Cambogia is the Nutra product, what 's your view regarding the growing trend of Nutra / Health supplements in the world?
There's no harm in growing trends of Nutra
health supplements in the world as far as it shows results & improves one's diseased condition. In today's busy lives leading a healthy lifestyle & maintaining your weight can be really difficult & costly. Getting up early in the morning or eating salads in the night is not everybody's cup of tea & the sedentary lifestyle also adds to your misery. In case you are searching for a solution to losing weight while not compromising on your sleep or work then you have come to the right place.
