Everyone wants to know if there are Garcinia Cambogia extract side effects? This a great question so we did some investigations to find out for ourselves.
Dr. J Kerr Explains
With the new Garcinia Cambogia craze, its easy to be sceptical of the product. Many people are asking the question “What about Garcinia Cambogia extract side effects?”. The question is found all over the internet, in forums, on websites, and even in chat rooms. The general answer to this burning question doesn’t seem to be what many people were expecting. According to the clinical trials, and reports from people who have taken the extract, the Garcinia Cambogia extract side effects seem to be minor, if the person taking it has any side effects at all.
One thing that a lot of people overlook when hearing about the Garcinia Cambogia extract, is that it has been used in traditional medicine long before practical medicine an certainly before this latest craze. This plant has been tested by ancient cultures for a long time and is still in use today in traditional food, home remedies, and now as a weight loss supplement. For a fruit to stand the test of time and still be in use now, must mean that it must have more positive effects on the body than negative, and in this case it means that the Garcinia Cambogia extract side effects are minimal, or none exist at all.
According to most sources, the Garcinia Cambogia extract side effects are usually limited to nausea and in some cases digestive tract discomfort. These problems have been accredited mainly to the individuals stomach being sensitive to new foods. In some cases, people report also having the same reaction to pumpkin or other pumpkin like foods, and some think there may be a connection between the two (Garcinia Cambogia and Pumpkins).
Caution Low Blood Sugar
Another reason you may see minor side effects to occur is by taking the supplement without consulting a doctor before starting this extract as everyone is different. Some of the effects of the Garcinia Cambogia can lead to side effects for certain groups of people who suffer from medical conditions, such as diabetes. Because of the nature of the extract it is known to lower blood sugars in the human body, which can have positive effects for some, and dangerous effects for others. This can be an obvious problem for someone with diabetes or any other condition that shows negative effects from low blood sugars.
Garcinia Cambogia extract side effects can also be caused by the use of the extract with other medications that you may be taking for a health condition. It is not recommended for anyone with Alzheimer’s, due to a potential conflict with their medications.
It is also not recommended for women that are pregnant or lactating, simply as a medical precaution. That is why consulting your doctor is a key if you are pregnant or have any existing health conditions.
Aside from these conflicts with other medications, or negative effects created by a health conditions, there are no known Garcinia Cambogia extract side effects in dosages of up to 2800mg per day. Aside from possible effects caused by another drug, or a foreign variable, this is possibly one of the safest extract that has ever been used as a weight loss supplement.
All the studies that have been conducted and patient interviews show us that there are no serious side effects with this supplement. It still too soon to tell what long term effects there may be but considering that a pure supplement is made with natural ingredients and the Garcinia Cambogia fruit has been used for centuries it’s looking very promising for positive and safe weight loss.
