Garcinia CambogiaIf you are a regular viewer of Dr Oz then you will know that in one of his past episodes he spent some time talking about a new weight loss supplement known as garcinia cambogia. Dr Oz referred to it as a ‘revolutionary fat buster’.

Now, Dr Oz doesn’t sell garcinia cambogia nor did he recommend any particular brand, so it left people wondering just which brand is the best. Fortunately Dr Oz, or should I say the guest MD, did state exactly what you should look for when purchasing garcinia cambogia.

These included the following:

  • The label should contain the words ‘garcinia cambogia’ or ‘garcinia cambogia extract’.
  • It should contain at least 50% Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA).
  • It should contain potassium and/or calcium.
  • It should not contain any fillers, binders or artificial ingredients.

I have struggled with weight gain for a number of years now and have tried various things to lose weight with varying degrees of success.  Knowing that Dr Oz has a reputation for only endorsing products that work, I have decided to try garcinia cambogia and am just waiting on my supply to arrive.  I will document my results on Just Loving Life and I must say I am looking forward to getting started.

So with this in mind, I went looking for some brands that met the criteria advised by Dr Chen. There weren’t a lot of them and in many cases, they missed the calcium/potassium or they were full of fillers and so on.

Remember that if you are going to buy garcinia cambogia that you will need a couple of months worth of tablets, and three months would be better. This is to ensure you give it a chance to work.

So assuming you take 3 tablets a day (500mg tablet taken before each meal) then for one month you will need 90 tablets, two months – 180 tablets and 3 months – 270 tablets. This is at the lowest dose. If you take the highest recommended dose of 1500mg before each meal (which would be 3 tablets before each meal) then you are looking at  270 tablets for one month, 540 tablets for two months and 810 tablets for three months.

I have decided to go for the higher dose as recommended by Dr Oz.

So at the end of the day, this is what I came up with, in no particular order.

1. Garcinia Cambogia Select

We actually contacted the manufacturer directly to find out more about this product. We were able to get the label sent directly to us so we could see exactly what is in it.

As you can see it meets the criteria as set out by Dr Oz plus it is made in the USA.

2. Garcinia Cambogia Gold

This is one of the biggest sellers of garcinia cambogia on eBay. Interestingly enough it gets very mixed reviews. Even some of those who have lost weight using it have left only 3 stars!! Why wouldn’t you leave 5 stars if you had lost the weight while using it?! I don’t get it.

This is the one that I have purchased because simply because was the first one I found that had the right ingredients. And I just wanted to get started asap – I’m not known for my patience.
