Garcinia Cambogia Extract – there ARE side effects

surprised-girl-garcinia-has-side-effectsWhen taken in very large quantities, garcinia may have mild side effects such as nausea, headaches, and some laxative effects.However, these instances are very rare, and occurr only when the amount taken is way above the recommended dose.There have been several studies to test Pure Garcinia and there were never any side effects reported during testing with controlled quantities and quality products

It DOES help with weight loss

This is the hottest weight loss supplement on the market right now.
Dr. Oz says Cambogia is:

The newest, fastest, fat buster

Blocks fat and hunger

If you’re familiar with Dr Oz, you might know he also likes Green Coffee Bean Extract , and Raspberry Ketones for their fat burning capabilities. He also likes African Mango for hunger suppression. So, if he recommends all these products, many people wonder,

What is so special about Garcinia Cambogia?

There are many benefits with Garcinia Cambogia, but we don’t believe it is a stronger fat burner than Green Coffee, or, is more effective at blocking hunger than African Mango or 5htp. But what really draws so much interest and got Dr Oz so excited about it? It is the only one that:

Blocks Fat AND Stops Hunger

Many weight loss product help with one or the other, but the HCA in “Gambooge” is effective at both. That is why it is such a powerful weight loss aid.

Used in advanced weight loss formulas for many years

garcinia cambogia superfruit diet
Garcinia Cambogia is a safe and healthy weight loss aid all by itself. But where it really excels is in combination with other products. Because it is more mild than some other diet aids with no caffeine or other stimulant properties, it has been used for many years to enhance the effectiveness of other products without making users nauseous, nervous, or edgy.

It isn’t really “new” to the weight loss industry, but is just recently made popular by Dr Oz.

Fat blocking different than fat burning
The “fat blocking” properties are different than fat burning like Raspberry Ketone and Green Coffee, so it is complementary to those products. They work better together.

Hunger suppressants not all the same
Even the hunger suppressant is a bit different. It raises serotonin levels in the brain, whereas 5HTP makes the serotonin more readily accessible. So both have similar effects, but may work differently for different people. And they also can work better together.

SuperFruit Diet Formulas
NewLifeBotanicals includes Cambogia in 3 of their popular Superfruit Diet Formulas. Our customers have been reporting more positive results with these products than any other we offer – in particular the SDF-1 and SDF-2.

what is garcinia question markWhat IS Garcinia Extract?

It’s a truly natural product that is made from the rind of the tamarind fruit, which resembles tiny pumpkin. This fruit is full of tons of anti-oxidants, and ingredients that help in combating fat and also reduce the effects of aging.

Anti-oxidants are very important and they attack free radicals in the body that cause disease and build fat cells that are otherwise so hard to get rid of.

What are the benefits of Cambogia supplements?

* Fat burner
* Appetite suppressant
* Energy booster

Studies show the HCA helps weight loss by suppressing appetite AND increased fat burning. You can take just one capsule an hour before you eat your food with a glass of water. Most people experience a significant reduction in your intensity of hunger, with no side effects

Warnings About Garcinia Extract

garcinia warning

It  IS safe for most people. But there are a few cases where you wouldn’t want to take it:

  • Pregnant
  • Breastfeeding
  • Alzheimers or dementia

You should not use this supplement if you suffer from Alzheimer’s disease or other similar cases of dementia, as it can increase the negative effects of that disease.

Lastly, if you take cholesterol-lowering drugs like a statin then you should avoid using Garcinia. The likelihood of muscle degeneration and rhabdomyolysis are just a few of the dangers you could face if you do – so definitely steer clear.

  1. just received your raspberry ketone product
    question: how many milligrams of caffeine are in each pill, or by serving when taking 2 pills (in case you only have the caffeine data on a per serving basis)?

    Thank you!

    1. The Raspberry Ketone capsules are 1200mgs per serving size. Serving size is 2 capsules that is 600 mgs per capsule. The caffeine amount is very small. Approximately, 10mgs per capsule.

      1. What do u consider dinner? U say at least take one before breakfast and dinner! Do u mean dinner as in lunch dinner like 12pm or dinner as in night time like 6 or 7 pm?

        1. I mean dinner as in when you eat dinner in the evening.

          But definitely take at least twice a day (if you forget to take before dinner then still take the supplement when you remember)

  2. after 3 days of taken Garcinia Cambogia my kidneys staring hurting, is there a reason for that? I do drink lots of water

  3. I don’t normally have caffeine after 3pm as it keeps me awake at nite, which sdf so you recommend for me?

    1. I would definitely recommend a supplement that is a bit more mild, but still has great benefits.

      SDF-3 is a supplement you should look into.

  4. what items to recommend for me if I want to lose weight?the dosage to be taken.Please do let me know what is the cost?thanks.

    1. What are you looking for exactly?

      Are you looking for a fat blocker, fat burner, hunger suppressant, to speed up metabolism, boost energy or a combination of two or more?

    1. We don’t see any reason why not.

      But we do recommend consulting with a doctor before purchasing any of our supplements.

  5. I bought this on ebay but the bottle is blue and the cover is white with a green lable and i am seeing a different kind of bottle her. Is this one i ordered ligit

    1. I am sorry, but I do not know what supplement you purchased online. I cannot give you accurate information on whether it is a legit product or not.

      1. hi there,

      2. Hi I recently bought 3 bottles of advance garnicia cambogia on Facebook thru Internet. It stated buy 3 get 3 for free. So I have paid the money and still waiting for the shipping. I did call to their customer service, they replied I’ll get my product within 9 days. Is that any wholesaler from Malaysia that’s currently take stocks from you?

  6. Hey, I have just recently started taking this product.. If i were to go on a diet and hit the gym everyday while taking three tablets a day.. How much weight can i possible loose in two months?

    1. It depends on how much weight you need to lose. But diet and exercise helps you to lose weight at a faster rate. I would think at least a 2-4 lbs a week.

  7. I have been recently diagnosed as prediabetic. I have not started taking medication and if I lose 10 lbs, I think I can reverse the diagnosis. Can I use Garcinia Cambogia or Rasberry Ketone? I will consult my doctor, but I would appreciate your educated opinion or recommendation on this issue.

    1. Yes you can take them together or Garcinia Cambogia with Green Coffee as well.

      And yes please consult with your doctor before ordering either supplement.

  8. H, do you ship this medication to the middle east (Lebanon) and if yes I’m 17 years old, can I take this medication ?

  9. So my serving size is two and equals 1000mg. Can I add one more for lunch instead of just breakfast and dinner?

    1. I am not sure what company you ordered from. Ours are 600mgs per capsule. You may want to consult the company you purchased from.

  10. I am uneasy about purchasing online. What stores would have them in B.C. Canada if any? shoppers or special health food stores? i would like to be able to see the label in person.

    1. I am sorry, we are only an online store. You can see the label on our page or I can email you a copy. We do ship to Canada.

  11. Really wish the admin would answer the questions presented to them in the comments, not just a couple few easy questions, but all the questions. That these questions have not been answered speaks volumes and until they are I’m not buying anything.

    1. I am sorry for my delayed response. What questions would you liked answered? I will be glad to assist you


  12. Hey guys, I’ve been taking garcinia cambogia for about a month now (the one from vitamin shoppe, white bottle blue writing) and I started to get some minor headaches that would only last a few seconds, but were getting more frequent. Last night up to this morning my stomach would not stop hurting (girls, it felt like the period pain) and when I googled my symptoms it took me here. I’m definitely not taking these pills anymore, not sure if it was the high dose (2 pills 3X a day) or just my body. I wish I could continue as I have lost 3 pounds, but I don’t think it’s worth it.

    1. We cannot give any information regarding your products because you did not purchase them from us.

      We have never heard of those issues, but we only recommend 4 capsules a day.

  13. Hi there,

    Are these pills available in South Africa, Im so conscois and scared to purchase any brand. Is there any particular brand that you can suggest which is available in South Africa?

    Do these pills have any affect on your liver, and are they high in caffeine? (Affect anxiety?)


  14. Three bottles is for three months if you take three a day?
    Can you tell me how many mg of 50%HCA has one capsule?
    Thank you!

    1. I do believe it is a 60 day supply if you are taking 3 capsules a day. Our Garcinia Cambogia has 600mgs. 500mgs of Garcinia Cambogia extract (50%hydroxycitric acid)

  15. i bought garcinia cambrogia extract 750mg pit out by Hi tech pharmaceuticals, is this a good brand to use, its my first time using these pills, can someone help me?

  16. I just bought these pill the green coffee bean extract n the garcinia cambogia together how do i drink them since they were both mail to me at the same time

    1. Brenda- Do you mean take them? Since we do not sell them in a liquid state. But you should only take 2-3 capsules a day. A maximum of 4 a day total.

  17. You stated that this raises serotonin levels of the brain. In that case, I would imagine they are not safe for anyone taking anti-depressants.

      1. I suggest you to consult your doctor. Because some antidepressant work by inhibiting seretonin reuptake in the brain. The selectivity of garcinia in increasing 5ht(seretonin) in the brain is not known, so the effect of taking both together is not known too. Hope that helps

      1. Marie- We have not heard of it doing that, but you may want to consult your doctor before ordering if that might be a problem for you.

  18. Does the combination of your superfruit formulas 1,2,3&4 cupsules contain the same ingredient amount and effectiveness as the single bottle formulas for the raspberry keytones and the Garcinia Cambogia capsules and in potency benefits on the same scale or are the single bottled formulas separately purchased and taken, more potent and effective? Example: instead of purchasing a bottle of one of the best fit for me superfruit,would it be more beneficial and same potency if I were to purchase 2 or 3 of the same ingredient list one bottle each and take for the same weight loss?

    Although I will ask our family doctor, can any of your products be used with Benicar HCT 40/25 mg tablets once a day for one with high blood pressure also for someone else with no health problems that casually drinks wine?
    thank you

    1. The SDF products have lower amounts of each product in them in order to have them all in one bottle. The best thing about the SDF products is that it has a combination of supplements that all have the same goal so they are most likely going to work for most people.

      You could take multiple supplements to reach the same goal or you can up your dosage of SDF products to 4 capsules a day and still have the same effect while being more convenient.

      I don’t see any reason why it would (depending on the supplement that you are looking at). Unless it contains caffeine or anything similar to that. So yes we do recommend consulting with your doctor.

      1. Please advise if this can be shipped to Malaysia , I am interested in the Green Coffee bean extract. Please advise the price including shipping cost.
