On the other hand, studies on humans have shown us different results. One trial between two sets of people who used the real medicine and a placebo pill, showed no difference at all.
Garcinia Cambogia manufacturers in India ensure their products are safe to consume and responsibly label them. Some recent laboratory tests have shown that most online supplements contain substantially less HCA than the label claims. In spite of its popularity, it is quite difficult to track how effective the supplements containing it are.
Is it safe?
People can safely consume the fruit as it has been proven safe for the human body. Clinic trials has shown that it is safe to consume it by mouth. However, take it with caution – because it has many side effects. It may interfere with diabetic treatments of patients by lowering their blood sugar. This fruit isn’t sufficiently tested on pregnant women and women who breastfeed. This may also cause trouble to patients with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
A 2016 case study examined a scenario where the usage of Garcinia Cambogia had caused hepatic failure and resulted in a liver transplant. The patient had consumed a supplement containing Garcinia extract for many months before his liver had failed. The report mentioned that this was the first known case of liver failure to have come into the limelight that had been linked to Garcinia extract. Other causes of liver damage such as drugs and alcohol were ruled out, and Garcinia Cambogia was the only remaining supplement that was ingested by the patient.
A conclusion derived from this experiment is that there is more research necessary in this area, and in the meanwhile, people should be aware of the risks involved in consuming this supplement.
