A Natural Weight Loss Supplement – Garcinia Cambogia Review



With more and more discussion about ways in which you can assist your body in losing weight, there is more awareness and interest when it comes to natural supplements that can potentially do just that.


A natural weight loss supplement such as Garcinia Cambogia Extract is certainly an ingredient which has become more widely known because of its potential benefits.





Background on the Ingredient


Garcinia Cambogia is a tropical species of fruit which is native to Indonesia. It is a green colored fruit and shaped like a small pumpkin. The skin of the fruit contains hydroxycitric acid (HCA), this is the active ingredient in Garcinia Cambogia Extract, which is marketed as a diet pill. The ingredient is one of a number of natural ingredients that are on the market and used in dietary supplements that have authentic natural ingredients.


It is important to differentiate the true natural ingredients in diet pills as given that many dietary supplements are not prescribed, therefore are not regulated quite as much as prescribed drugs or medication. This means that some supplements that do not contain natural ingredients are still marketed as containing ‘natural ingredients’ when in fact this is not the case.

Effectiveness and potential side effects – Garcinia Cambogia Extract


By inhibiting a fat-producing enzyme in the body and increasing levels of serotonin, this can potentially help to reduce cravings for food. It has been found that on average, it can cause weight loss of about 2lbs over several weeks. This is when used properly as a supplement and alongside other dietary changes and exercises to increase the chances of having the best possible impact.







It is always advisable to use supplements with a degree of caution, particularly if you are already using medication, have any long standing health issues or are pregnant. If this is the case seeing your doctor prior to use is highly recommended.


Having used dietary supplements before, I know they can be beneficial and effective but must be used in the right quantity and in tandem with other key lifestyle changes. Each product will have directions on when to use, with meals is often a good idea unless directed otherwise.


My personal recommendation is the branded product All Natural Garcinia Cambogia (Potent Organics), as this brand has the best approach to catering for and making sure all their products are produced naturally whilst still maintaining the effectiveness of their products.



Garcinia Cambogia is an important and natural ingredient that has a number of benefits to the human body when used correctly. All the above supplements do have benefits to offer, so of course the information provided helps with any potential decisions.

    Hey Josh!

    Thank you for your presentation of these health supplements. You sad we should combine work out with the intake of the supplements. How often per week would you recommend doing exercises to reach the optimal state of weight loss per Garcinia Product?

    • Josh April 23, 2018 at 10:26 am

      Hi Johann, I always recommend a bit of trial and error when it comes to exercise as people have different levels of fitness and it is important to tailor duration and types of exercise according to what has most effect on your body. However, I would normally suggest a workout of 4 times a week with each session a minimum of 1 hour and a rest day between.
      I would also advise that each session has a variety of both cardio and muscular training. Also note that the rest of your normal diet is important, such as keeping within the daily calorie intake for your body mass and cutting out processed carbs and increasing protein intake.

      Thanks for your comment

    Hi Josh,
    Garcinia Cambogia is definitely of the very popular and advertised supplements. I have heard a lot of feedback regarding it and was very happy to read your post pointing out not only on how it really works but also on that it needs to be taken together with the proper diet and exercises.
    You see, there are a lot of people who would like to lose weight but instead of making it happen the healthy way by correcting their diets and do exercises, they are relying on ‘magic pills’ instead.
    As you mentioned Garcinia Cambogia might be a very powerful supplement for the weight loss combined with the proper well-balanced diet and exercises. It can help with hunger and if combined with low-carb diet may also stimulate the fat burning process.

      Hi Anna, The boost in metabolism definitely helps the fat burning process and they can be very effective in preventing food cravings but are designed as supplements and not replacements for healthy diets and more regular exercise which sometimes people fail to realize. Thanks for your comments.

    I like Garcinia Cambogia, and used to use it quite often. I do like the CB Essentials brand the best. I think I just might have to get back into the habit. They do work. Glad I found this information! Would this be the brand you would recommend from the selections that you have?

    • Josh April 23, 2018 at 10:53 am

      I would recommend the Potent Organics brand, as I used them after being recommended them by a friend who was a vegan and she liked the fact they were marketed as 100% suitable for vegan’s. I found them particularly useful in preventing my food cravings. Thanks you for the comments.

    Hi Josh, thanks for this review of garcinia cambogia. I’ve been curious about its effectiveness for a while now. Do you think this works as a fat burning supplement. That is in place of it?
    I usually workout with high intensity 3 days a week and the fat burner helps me get through it. Since garcinia cmabogia has fat buring qualities I was wondering whether a like for like substitution is possible

    • Josh May 24, 2018 at 11:51 am

      I would recommend using this as an alternative fat burning supplement. Some of the benefits of Garcinia Cambogia supplements such as boosting metabolism, blocking fat build up and suppressing appetite all help in losing weight/fat burning and is particularly effective when used alongside a regular workout regime as you do. I’m not sure what fat burner you use currently, but the fact Garcinia Cambogia is a natural ingredient certainly makes it completely safe to use compared to other dietary supplements that aren’t produced with natural ingredients and sometimes the content is not fully known. Thank you for reading the post and for your question.
