Garcinia Cambogia Extra, with raspberry ketone
Before starting our Garcinia Cambogia Extra test, we asked ourselves: does Garcinia Cambogia (at all) work for losing weight?
The answer is YES? and NO! It sounds contradictory, but we’ll explain why!
You’ve decided to take the plunge and try to lose weight with Garcinia Cambogia, which you’ve CERTAINLY heard the highest praise for, especially for its appetite-suppressant and fat-burning properties?
And you want to be sure of your choice?
You want to know IF it will work for you?
We’re going to explain why two products based on the same ingredient, in our case Garcinia Cambogia, can have two different results and lead to contradictory outcomes.
One (another) Garcinia Cambogia-based product…
As its name suggests, Garcinia Cambogia EXTRA contains the extract of the famous Garcinia Cambogia fruit, to which raspberry ketone has been added.
It’s this synergistic combination that makes this product so powerful, and ultimately so effective.
Garcinia Cambogia has been praised on a number of TV programs, including the famous Dr. OZ show, which praised Garcinia Cambogia as a natural weight-loss and appetite-control product.
But beware… Poor Dr. OZ may himself be a victim of false advertising, just as many users of weight-loss pills are!
Many manufacturers and distributors announce that their products have been featured on Dr. OZ’s show. Playing on the confusion of similar names is clearly a fraudulent practice whose sole aim is to sell one’s own products at any price. We therefore advise you to check for yourself any claims made by a manufacturer or reseller.
Here’s a tip: Until you’ve verified with your own eyes, on one of the episodes of the Dr. OZ show, that any product was actually displayed and presented to the live audience… don’t believe anything you’re told!
And above all, pay close attention to the names – they’re very important! It’s all a question of dosage and authenticity!
What is Garcinia Cambogia?
If you’re one of our loyal readers, you probably know what it is.
If not, you should know that it’s a fruit from a tree that grows in India, tropical Asia and Africa. It has long been used in traditional medicine to treat digestive disorders and skin problems, as well as to flavour rice-based dishes.
The active ingredient responsible for fat melting and weight loss is extracted from its thick skin.
What does Garcinia Cambogia do?
Garcinia Cambogia’s benefits include :
- Reduces appetite ;
- Increases metabolism and burns more fat;
- Increases energy and makes you feel fitter;
- Helps reduce sugar intake.
Many studies have investigated the effect of garcinia cambogia on weight loss. We can’t list them all, but here’s a sample of recent studies carried out on this fruit.
The study entitled “The effect of Garcinia Cambogia as a coadjuvant in the weight loss process” suggests positive results for the effect of garcinia cambogia on the weight loss process. In particular, it noted that the ideal dosage has not yet been determined, and that there is insufficient evidence regarding its adverse effects. This study suggests that further, more in-depth studies should be carried out to confirm the effect of garcinia cambogia on weight loss.

How Garcinia Cambogia works?
The thick skin of the Garcinia fruit contains a powerful active ingredient called hydroxycitric acid or HCA (HCA).
Its scientifically-recognized action is to block the process by which sugars are converted into fat and, ultimately, into excess weight.
So how do sugars turn into fat?
When sugars are consumed, they are broken down to provide energy for the body’s cells.
If this consumption is excessive, part of it is transformed into glycogen and stored in the liver and muscle for later use. As this storage capacity is limited, and if the diet adopted is chronically high in sugars, the sugar is stored in the form of fat, and this time the storage capacity becomes unlimited. This is why weight gain can progress continuously and rapidly!
Cellular enzymes are involved in this process, notably Citrate lyase which, under the influence of insulin, converts excess sugar into Acetyl coenzyme A, which in turn transforms into fatty acids and fatty tissue. This is known as lipogenesis.
Excess sugars can be stored in the form of adipose tissue, providing an energy reserve that can be mobilized when needed, as in the case of prolonged physical activity.
How Garcinia Cambogia Extra prevent the formation of fat?
Garcinia Cambogia’s active ingredient, AHC, prevents the synthesis of fat from sugars by blocking lipogenesis. It blocks citrate lyase thus preventing it from transforming sugars into fat.
A considerable advantage, since AHC prevents the formation of adipocytes (fat-filled cells) in both number and volume.
These adipocytes, once reduced in number and fat-free, prevent the yo-yo effect, i.e. weight regain after stopping a diet.
Garcinia Cambogia Extra regulates appetite by considerably reducing the sensation of hunger. In this case, the body’s energy requirements supplied by food become insufficient, and the body is forced to produce its own energy by burning stored fat.
In addition to melting fat, it has a notable effect on the secretion of serotonin the pleasure hormone. This means that with Garcinia Cambogia Extra, you can lose weight while getting rid of the depressing effects caused by various slimming diets.
Garcinia Cambogia Extra is also naturally rich in antioxidants, including vitamin C. It therefore has an overall beneficial effect on health.
All these benefits are accompanied by excellent tolerability, as no toxic effects have been detected in the various studies on Garcinia Cambogia Extra.
The raspberry ketone and Garcinia Cambogia Extra
Garcinia Cambogia Extra contains raspberry ketone, naturally present in raspberries and other fruits.
As this extract is very expensive, most dietary supplements that contain it only use a synthetic extract. This brings us back to our umpteenth warning against this type of supplement!
Raspberry ketone’s effect on weight loss is thought to be due to its action on adiponectin, a hormone which prevents the accumulation of fat. This role has not been conclusively established. On the other hand, its high antioxidant content makes it an excellent product for combating the aging of all the body’s cells.
Garcinia Cambogia Extra’s promises are based on actual results obtained before it was launched on the market.
More concretely, here’s what you’ll get by consuming Garcinia Cambogia Extra, which, by dislodging fat from the most difficult places, enables you to have:
- A flatter stomach ;
- Firmer buttocks;
- Slimmer thighs.
The testimonials of Garcinia Cambogia Extra consumers show that this product really works, with visible results from the first month of use.
Who can take Garcinia Cambogia Extra?
Anyone who wants to lose weight by getting rid of stubborn thigh and belly fat, and is looking for a healthy dietary supplement with no side effects and proven action.
What’s more, the 60-day money-back guarantee is a guarantee of seriousness and reliability.
However, pregnant or breast-feeding women should not use Garcinia Cambogia Extra.
The same applies to growing children.
This contraindication also applies to people on anti-cholesterol medication, who should consult their doctor before taking Garcinia Cambogia Extra (or any other type of slimming pill).
