NatureWise Garcinia Cambogia Extract is an appetite suppressant and weight loss supplement that uses only carefully selected natural ingredients for the task – an aspect that the manufacturer presents as the biggest selling point. Other features included are a concentration of 60% HCA (the Cambogia extract that aids in the objectives advertised), NSF certification, a generous supply of pills for the money and customer support staff that is well prepared to guide you.
With that being said, here is a summary of our experience with the product:
- A considerable supply for the money (180 pills)
- All natural, non-GMO ingredients
- No side-effects as far as medical research goes
- Its effectiveness is not scientifically proven
HCA is supposed to promote weight loss in two ways. First of all, it increases serotonin levels in your body. This hormone plays a critical part in ensuring the well-being and happiness of an individual. When its levels go abnormally low, depression and anxiety appear, leading numerous people to eat as a result of going through the considerable emotional troubles that appear. By increasing its levels, these situations become less likely to occur.
Another way that HCA is said to help lose weight is by blocking an enzyme called citrate lyase that is needed for the body to make fat from carbohydrates. This also lowers the levels of bad cholesterol.
Unfortunately, studies regarding the effectiveness of HCA in practice have been inconclusive so far. Seeing how you are taking a product that is not confirmed scientifically to work, we advise you to be careful in your expectations.
As for my own experience, I have to say I did not notice a huge difference when taking the standard dosage of 1 capsule. I do appreciate this it is a non-stimulant product and doesn't make me feel jittery all day, but the effects weren't as dramatic as the manufacturer claims. When bumping up to the maximum dosage of 3 capsule per day is when I started to notice more significant effects. I find this product provide maximum results when taken 3 times per day, once before each meal. The effects don't last all that long, but they do seem to curb appetite long enough to prevent you from over eating during your 3 main meals of the day.
The price is quite low and you receive a lot of pills for the money. Even at the maximum dosage of 3 capsules per day, one bottle will last you 2 months. There are also no side effects found in studies.
Overall, while this product is not scientifically confirmed to help you lose weight, I can say that I felt a noticeable reduction in appetite when used at maximum dosage. Whether this was placebo or not is impossible to say, but at a good price point and with no side effects, I find this product to be worth a shot.
