In this article, we put Pure Garcinia Cambogia Gummies to the test to find out if it really can help you to drop the pounds.
Pure Garcinia Cambogia Gummies are sweet and juicy just like that sugary filled gummies that you know are no good for you. The difference is that these gummies contain just 5grams of sugar per serve, yet they still feature delicious fruit burst flavors. They contain no artificial colors or flavorings. They are also non stimulant and gluten free.
Pure Garcinia Cambogia Extract is, a supplement that originates from the rind of the Pure Garcinia Cambogia – a green pumpkin looking fruit. Garcinia has been used for centuries where it grows native, but its effective health benefits are only recently being studied by scientists. People who live in areas where the Garcinia Cambogia fruit grows in its native environment have actually known about its health benefits for centuries.
Garcinia cambogia inhibits the production of new fat in the body.
When we eat food, our liver enzymes turn the sugar, bread and carbohydrates into fat cells. Our fat cells swell and absorb this fat, getting larger and larger. Garcinia cambogia blocks these liver enzymes and creates a new pathway to move the sugar, bread and carbohydrates into energy. By doing this, we prevent new fat from being formed. The fat cells will also begin to shrink and convert the stored fat into energy.
Scientific research shows that people using garcinia cambogia lose two to three times more fat than with diet and exercise alone. The Purely Inpsired website cites two studies which show the effects of garcinia cambogia for weight loss compared to a placebo. In one study, carried out over 60 days, those who took garcinia cambogia lost twice as much weight as those who took a placebo (10.95 pounds versus 5.40 pounds).(1)
In the second study, study participants who took garcinia cambogia over an 8-week period lost an average of 3.75 pounds, compared with 1.25 pounds in the placebo group. In both surveys, the study particpants followed a low calorie diet along with moderate exercise.(2)
As well as helping with weight loss, garcinia cambogia also helps emotional eaters by increasing serotonin levels. It also makes it easier to get a good night’s sleep. Your mood will be elevated when you take this product. Your appetite will also be suppressed.(3)
In these ways, garcinia cambogia acts as a dual fat buster. Firstly, it suppresses appetite so you are not hungry. Second, it prevents fat from being stored by changing fat into glycogen for energy that your muscles will use when you exercise.
Garcinia Cambogia is a completely natural product, being derived from the green pumpkin like garcinia cambogia fruit. There are no other ingredients in Garcinia Pure. This gives you the absolute confidence that this product is completely safe and will not provide you with any negative side effects at all.(4)
Caffeine is a powerful stimulant associated with weight loss. However, it isn't the only fat loss benefit that comes from coffee beans. Raw green coffee beans contain high amounts of a powerful fat fighter called chlorogenic acid. Studies suggest that chlorogenic acid inhibits the enzymes responsible for the production of fat. It also slows down the absorption of sugar from meals.(5)
In a recent study, subjects who supplemented with 1050 mg of green coffee bean extract per day enjoyed an average weight loss of 17.5 pounds over a 22 week period. However, you cannot get the same fat burning effects simply from drinking coffee. That's because, as soon as green coffee beans are roasted, the chlorogenic acid is destroyed. So, to lose fat the key is to take green coffee beans. (6)
Other green coffee bean extract benefits are that it reduces carbohydrate digesting enzymes and shifts the site of glucose absorption to more distant parts of the intestine. In this way it helps to boost secretion of the gut hormone GLP-1. Green coffee bean extract also supports blood levels of adiponectin, which is a hormone that is secreted by the pancreas. Adiponectin boosts fat burning as well as helping to balance out insulin levels and healthy blood glucose levels.(7)
Pure Garcinia Cambogia Gummies contain two key ingredients that both have a raft of scientific evidence that they have powerful fat burning effects. Both garcinia cambogia and green coffee bean extract are completely natural ingredients and act as appetite suppressants. The flavorings in this product are completely natural. However, you do get 5 grams of sugar per serving. You simply take two gummies, three times per day about 45 minutes before meals.
Some reviewers have reported an unpleasant taste with this product, while other have said that it tastes fine. In the end it is matter of personal preference. However, you should be warned that you may not like the flavor of these gummies.
Pure Garcinia Cambogia Gummies deliver two key ingredients that can help drive weight loss and suppress the appetite in an easily digestible, pleasant form.The combination of garcinia cambogia and green coffee bean extract make for a powerful one-two punch against fat stores. However, this is somewhat negated by the fact that there are 5 grams of sugar in each serving.
Overall, we feel that this is a beneficial weight loss stimulant that is offered at a reasonable price point.
