How does Garcinia work?

Preliminary research suggests that garcinia might prevent fat storage and suppress hunger; however, whether these effects occur in humans is unclear.

Are there safety concerns?

Garcinia appears to be safe for most people when used for 12 weeks or less. Long-term safety is unknown. Garcinia can cause nausea, digestive tract discomfort, and headache.

Do not use garcinia if:
  • You are pregnant or breast-feeding.

Dosing considerations for Garcinia.

The appropriate dose of garcinia depends on several factors such as the user's age, health, and several other conditions. At this time, there is not enough scientific information to determine an appropriate range of doses for garcinia. Keep in mind that natural products are not always necessarily safe and dosages can be important.
