I've read much more on this product after I've bought it, as I always treat these 'weight loss' pills with a lot of skepticism. I took one the first day, but couldn't tell any difference, then took two (the recommended daily dose) the next day, and again am not sure it made any difference. I am very careful about taking these - I don't take any other products during this time, and always take after a meal. A few days ago, after getting out of the shower, I noticed weird pale red splotches on my torso, back and arms, in no particular pattern. This is very strange for me, and I read about possible side effects including skin rashes after taking this supplement. So, I've quit taking it as of yesterday. Oh well, was hoping this might be the magic pill to suppress my appetite. I have to say, that I haven't felt hungry yesterday or today, but could be in my head, knowing that I need to drop a few lbs before a Half Marathon next month.
The benefits of Garcinia Cambogia are both due to the high percentage of Hydroxycitric Acid as well as the complimenting minerals such as Chromium. Garcinia Cambogia from Genetic Solutions may be a healthy way to control appetite, and manage healthy lean body mass already within a normal range. Hydroxycitric Acid has been clinically studied because of its unique ability to inhibit the enzymes necessary to convert carbohydrate into triglycerides, which are the building blocks for stored body-fat. In other words, the Hydroxycitric acid found in Garcinia Cambogia may act as buffer that prevents excess calories in the diet from being converted to body fat. In addition to its unique effect on fat storage, Garcinia may also decrease appetite, and may be especially effective at controlling cravings for sugar and starchy foods.**
