Garcinia cambogia is marketed primarily as a natural weight loss method with little or no effort. Some companies claim that supplements can help people lose weight without exercise or diet.
It is true that HCA garcinia has been found to increase the ability to burn fat in the body.
One review posted in Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine has shown that garcinia promotes weight loss in most cases. But the results are very different.
Some studies using HCA have produced amazing weight loss results, while others have shown that the supplement was ineffective.
Researchers note that most studies conducted on garcinia or HCA use animal species. A small study of humans found that the effects of the fruit were so widespread that they seemed to be beneficial. It may work, and it may not work.
