Nutrastar Dispels Common Myths About Garcinia Cambogia
Marketing Hype Leads to False Claims, Could Spell Trouble for Weight-Loss Enthusiasts
An example of a video of someone claiming to be a doctor to warn people before buying any brand of Garcinia Cambogia
A cursory search on the Internet on the term "garcinia cambogia" would lead to videos, articles, and websites with people claiming to be doctors and testifying about the weight loss effectivity and additional health benefits of the said supplement. With all the noise about this weight loss pill, it's getting harder and harder to filter fact from fiction.
So which claims are true and which ones are false? Here are some of the more common myths surrounding this "holy grail":
1. Dr. Oz, the famous doctor and talk show host, endorses a brand of garcinia cambogia.
Too many brands claim that Dr. Oz is endorsing their product. Indeed there are even a number of user reviews expressing disappointment in the doctor because the brand that the doctor allegedly endorsed didn't work for them.
The truth is, Dr. Oz is not endorsing and has never endorsed or sold a garcinia cambogia supplement brand. In the episode of the Dr. Oz Show featuring the supplement, he specifically stated: "I warned everybody that I'm not gonna mention specific brands... And remember, you should never see my picture next to it ‘cause I [would] never sell it. If you see my picture next to it that means they're stealing from you; and I guarantee you, as soon as this show airs there's gonna be thousands of fake ads out there; so don't go for those."
2. Garcinia cambogia can cure certain health problems, including obesity.
All garcinia cambogia products are herbal dietary supplements. They are NOT intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. Herbal dietary supplements are not medicines.
Today, western scientific research on the extract is fairly limited. However, the garcinia cambogia fruit, known as the gambooge, has been a relevant traditional aid in Indian medicine. It was used to treat maladies such as edema, intestinal parasites, delayed menstruation, and constipation. It is also a common ingredient in South Indian cuisine, as it is known to be easily filling.
While garcinia cambogia are not medicine, many anecdotal feedback state that it does have the ability to suppress the appetite. Along with proper diet and exercise, this supplement could aid the body in speeding up the process of weight loss.
3. Garcinia cambogia is safe for everyone.
Garcinia cambogia is not safe for everyone, particularly pregnant or breastfeeding women. Those who are taking prescription pharmaceuticals and other herbal supplements should consult their doctors first before using this product.
Most anecdotal reports give positive feedback on the supplement, including feeling more energized, craving less food, and eventually losing weight. But there are a few who experience side effects, including stomach upset, headache, and nausea. Those who experience negative side effects should discontinue the use of the supplement and consult a doctor immediately.
"Especially since the summer is upon us, those desperate to lose some weight easily fall into the the trap that many garcinia cambogia sellers put up. This leads to unrealistic expectations about the product." says Maureesha Jackson, a representative of Nutrastar. "It's a danger to other small businesses selling this supplement as well - it affects our own credibility", she adds.
When asked about how to prevent falling from marketing traps, Jackson advises: "Be vigilant, do your research, and don't fall for marketing hype. If the claim is too good to be true, it probably is."
