General Comments about Garcinia Cambogia and other health and dietary supplements
We are all very different chemically, so there is no “magic pill” for weight loss that works for everyone. As a whole, we are ultimately human beings, but the variations in our body chemistries have to be infinite.
What works for one person, might not for another.
Eating right for your body chemistry and metabolic type, plus appropriate exercise for your age and health condition are of more critical importance than dietary and health supplements.
Consult with your primary physician about any and all medications and supplements you’re taking, or contemplating taking, whether prescription or OTC (over the counter). Too much of anything can have bad side effects. Interactions between prescribed medications and dietary supplements are always a possibility.
Garcinia Cambogia is one of many supplements that contain natural plant extracts. Any side effects from ingesting these plant-based supplements are unknown and unproven.
Typically health supplements, including Garcinia Cambogia have not been reviewed by the FDA. That can be good or bad, depending on your opinion of excessive government regulation on our lives.
We are the guinea pigs for tomorrows health journals.
Considerations in taking Garcinia Cambogia
The instructions for Garcinia Cambogia include taking them 1/2 to one hour before a meal, three times a day. That may be difficult for some people to adhere to.
Any supplement takes time and patience. None of them should promise overnight weight loss.
Results will depend on your baseline: what your daily eating and exercise habits are.
If taking the clinically-proven “Weight-loss Dosage” of 9 capsules per day, each bottle will last 20 days.
If taking the “Satiety Dosage” of 3 capsules per day, each bottle will last 60 days.
Recommended dosages for Garcinia Cambogia may differ for your situation.
Different dosages are suggested for Garcinia Cambogia extract depending on the purpose it is taken for.
The “SATIETY DOSAGE” helps to curb appetite and reduce caloric intake whereas the “WEIGHT LOSS DOSAGE” helps to curb appetite, reduce caloric intake, burn fat, reduce body weight 3 times more than diet and exercise alone, and promote normal cholesterol and seratonin levels.
“SATIETY DOSAGE” : As a dietary supplement, take 1 vegetarian capsule ½ hour to 2 hours before meals three times daily, or as directed by a healthcare professional (that’s 1,500 mg per day).
“WEIGHT-LOSS DOSAGE” : As a dietary supplement, take 3 vegetarian capsules ½ to 2 hours before meals three times daily, or as directed by a healthcare professional (that’s 4,500 mg per day).
The ‘seen on TV’ recommendation is to take 500mg to 1000mg before each of three meals, and no more than 3000mg total per day.
Important Ingredient and Product descriptions from Manufacturers :
The Garcinia Gold™ Advantage
Garcinia Gold™ by Nutrigold® is formulated using Super Citrimax®, a patented all-natural, non-stimulant, safe and effective fruit extract used for satiety (at lower dosages) and weight loss (at higher dosages).

About Garcinia & Super Citrimax®
Super Citrimax® is an all-natural, safe and effective fruit extract from the South Asian fruit Garcinia cambogia. Super CitriMax® is standardized to 60% hydroxycitric acid (HCA), which has been clinically shown to suppress appetite, inhibit fat production, increase fat burning and increase weight loss without stimulating the central nervous system.
Garcinia Gold™ works by inhibiting the enzymes that convert carbohydrates into fat. If not utilized for energy, carbohydrates are converted into fat and stored in the body. Super Citrimax® inhibits the conversion of carbohydrates into fat and promotes an increase in the formation of stored energy as glycogen. This also signals the brain to turn off hunger signals.
Clinical studies show that Super Citrimax® increases fat oxidation (“burning”) as well as brain serotonin levels, a neurotransmitter involved in mood, sleep and appetite control, which may help address many of the emotional issues overweight people face, including binge-eating and mood disorders.
