    Is Garcinia cambogia extract diet pill safe to use for weight loss?

    Many people who want to lose weight are asking about the uses of garcinia cambogia extract diet pills. Some health experts are saying they’re good for the body while others are telling the public that they’re dangerous to our health.

    Just like any other diet pills, we don’t know what’s inside these pills. They may contain garcinia cambogia but the amount may not be enough to provide health benefits.

    Since these pills didn’t undergo clinical trials, you can’t be sure of their safety and effectiveness. In fact, their use has been linked to several hospitalizations.

    What’s more is that we don’t know if the manufacturers of garcinia cambogia extract diet pills have added other ingredients that might be harmful to the body.

    In fact, some brands of these pills failed the tests conducted by independent laboratories. In 2005, there has been a study by the Food and Chemical Toxicology about the use of garcinia comabogia extract in high doses. According to that study, this extract caused toxicity and testicular atrophy when tested in mice.

    If you still wanted to use this extract for your weight loss goal, it’d be best to look for a product that doesn’t contain fillers and other harmful chemicals. Or

    Note: Garcinia cambogia is different from mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana). Although these two fruits look almost similar in appearance and are related, they’re not the same.
