Anytime you consume anything into your system you run the risk of discovering side effects. From food to medication to supplements and anything in between there is always a chance that your body won’t react well. The product simply may not work for your body and therefore have no effect whatsoever or you might react extremely well and do better than anyone who has ever used it before, or you could get sick and have problems. Again, we are not just talking about Garcinia Cambogia here, we are talking about anything you put into your system. I strongly recommend speaking to your health care provider before trying any new diet or supplement.
Side effect studies are done to try to narrow down what causes bad results to come from innocent or good for you products, or to point out what the limit is that you can consume of a particular product.
Fortunately the studies conducted regarding HCA and Garcinia have been extremely positive. It is 100% safe to take for up to three months and there just hasn’t been time to give a full report about what happens if you decide to take it longer. The only known side effects of headache, gas, bloating, stomach upset have come into play when people have taken more than the recommended dosage of Garcinia Cambogia. When used correctly there have been zero side effects reported.
If you have any form of pre-existing condition you should talk to your doctor before taking Garcinia Cambogia. This is especially true if you suffer from any kind of diet related illness or if you have to be on a special diet due to medication or if you are diabetic.
There are no current studies regarding how Garcinia reacts with prescription medication or with other supplements.
As with any food, drink of supplement you may simply be allergic to Garcinia and not know it or have any way of knowing it prior to taking it. Be smart when starting a new supplement and keep a journal of how you are feeling day to day for at least the first 30 days. This will allow you to seek medical help faster if a problem arises.
Make sure that you get to know your own body before starting to take Garcinia. Know what you weigh and what your BMI is and keep a written record of where it is and how it changes. Knowing yourself is true key to safely and effectively losing weight.
