After being mentioned on Dr. Oz, the sales of Garcinia Cambogia have gone through the roof. This is in part due to the clinical study that was mentioned on his show. To be clear, Dr. Oz does not endorse any specific garcinia cambogia extract, but this study was mentioned and he does give specific guidelines.
Garcinia Cambogia Extracts have been all over the media and in published studies. The most famous clinical study, published in the Current Therapeutic Research® journal, uses a specific type of garcinia cambogia extract that contains 60% Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA) which is exactly what is used in Elite Gold's Garcinia Cambogia HCA™.
Participants were between the ages of 20 and 65 years and divided into two groups. The study was a randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled human study conducted on moderately obese subjects. Each subject underwent a computed tomography scan at the umbilical level at –2, 0, 12, and 16 weeks.
The study lasted for 12 weeks and 44 participants. In addition, the participants did not to make any changes to their diet or daily exercise habits. They were strictly monitored for the duration of the study. For a full review of that clinical study please CLICK below.
At the end of the study there was significant weight loss and had signiﬁcantly reduced visceral, subcutaneous, and total fat areas compared with the placebo group. Garcinia Cambogia reduced abdominal fat accumulation in subjects, regardless of sex, who had the visceral fat accumulation. That is significant on any level, but taking into account that they did not change their daily routines or their diet is extraordinary.
In addition, Food intake, total cholesterol, low-density lipoproteins, triglycerides and serum leptin levels were significantly reduced in both groups, while high-density lipoprotein levels and excretion of urinary fat metabolites increased in both groups.
To be clear, this study was done specifically on 60% HCA the same garcinia cambogia extract found in Elite Gold's Garcinia Cambogia HCA™. So, if you're going to buy a garcinia cambogia extract, make sure it says 60% Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA) on the label!
