Garcinia Cambogia is a fruit native to parts of Asia and also can go under the names of brindle berry, and malabar tamarind. There are no known side effects of taking Garcinia Cambogia however we have had some customers share with us that they found better results when taking it with food.
A couple of customers have reported that it caused a slight tummy upset when taking Garcinia on an empty stomach, but found this went away when taking it with food. There are many weight loss supplements on the market that are packed with caffeine and other stimulants, which do deliver known side effects such as insomnia, adrenal fatigue and sometimes anxiety. When choosing a Garcinia Cambogia product we highy recommend steering clear of caffeine.
We have come across a couple of different Garcinia Cambogia products on the market that contain caffeine in the formula, this may give a short term stimulant effect, but doesn't improve the effectiveness of the Garcinia Cambogia itself. Caffeine when used in small doses can enhance weight loss, but should be taken separately to other weight loss supplements.
So in conclusion, there are no known side effects with taking Garcinia Cambogia, however if you are on any medication or breast feeding you should consult your doctor. The best time to take it is at meal times, with cold water. It works by blocking an enzyme called citrate lyase, which your body uses to make fat. It also raises levels of serotonin, the feel good hormone, which also helps to reduce appetite.
