What is Garcinia Cambogia?

Also known as Malabar tamarind, Garcinia cambogia is a weight-loss supplement which advocates claim blocks the body’s ability to make fat and reduces appetite. The active ingredient in Garcinia cambogia, hydroxycitric acid (HCA), works by blocking an enzyme called citrate lyase, which the body uses to make fat. Garcinia cambogia is sold at GNC and other vitamin retailers in the form of pills as well as mixed in with other ingredients in diet products.

What’s the Problem?

Studies have found that not only is Garcinia cambogia unimpressive as a weight-loss supplement, but it may also be very dangerous to certain users. A 2010 review published in the Journal of Obesity [1] found that people who took Garcinia cambogia lost less than 2 pounds compared to those who didn’t take it, and the researchers couldn’t determine for certain that the weight loss was because of the supplement. It could have been from the lower-calorie diet and exercise programs the participants followed, the authors concluded.
