Who can take Garcinia cambogia or its extract HCA ?
In recent years, Garcinia cambogia has been promoted for weight loss due to various possible effects it may have on the body. First, it is believed to interfere with an enzyme needed to store fat, possibly causing more fat from foods to be eliminated from the body. More studies are needed to prove or disprove the effectiveness of Garcinia cambogia in weight control. Garcinia cambogia has appeared to prevent the development of stomach ulcers by reducing the production of stomach acid. Excess amounts of stomach acid may contribute to the development of stomach ulcers. Garcinia cambogia may also enhance the ability of the stomach lining to resist damage. No human studies have been performed to confirm this effect.
