Plenty of people are buzzing about pure garcinia cambogia dr oz – thanks to some extent to an Internet scam that illegally used the Women’s Health brand likeness and copyrighted materials (as well as the likeness and materials of other respected health brands) to market the pills. We wrote regarding the scam at length here, as well as how you can identify if you’ve been scammed.
But here’s something diffrent super troubling about this all: All backstory about scammers aside, this type of diet pill may be dangerous to your health.
Garcinia cambogia, which alone is fairly darn delicious and healthy, is a tropical fruit grown in Indonesia. (Additionally, it goes through the name tamarind fruit.) According to Purdue University, it’s full of calcium, phosphorus, iron, thiamine, riboflavin, and niacin. All great things, right?
Well, here’s where things get tricky: Its rind contains a compound called hydroxycitric acid (HCA), which proponents claim decreases appetite and prevents your body from storing food as fat. However, since dr oz garcinia cambogia are supplements, not drugs, the meals and Drug Administration doesn’t regulate their use or review their effectiveness or safety unless, as was the case with OxyElite Pro, their use becomes linked to multiple hospitalisations, says medical weight-loss expert Dr Sue Decotiis. Because of this it’s approximately manufacturers to make a decision how much garcinia cambogia their pills pack, along with what other health-impacting ingredients are put into the mix.
“Most brands of garcinia cambogia extract weight loss pills, including big names, have failed independent laboratory quality and quantity testing,” says Decottis. “Also, we have seen no large-scale dexupky67 comparing garcinia to placeboes or some other supplements. There probably will never be any objective data on garcinia.”
What’s more, a 2005 study in Food and Chemical Toxicology found out that high doses of garcinia cambogia brands recommended by dr oz caused testicular atrophy and toxicity in mice. Even when you don’t have testicles, that’s sure to help you become cringe.
