Garcinia became a rock star in the dietary supplement world after a 2012 endorsement by television host Dr Mehmet Oz, who called it a “revolutionary fat buster.” (The endorsement was removed from the Dr Oz website following a USA Senate hearing on questionable weight loss products.)

This opinion by a pharmacist who is an Assistant Professor, Department of Physiological Sciences, Eastern Virginia Medical School in the USA, and published in Medscape, concludes that “Currently, not enough research is available to recommend garcinia or HCA-containing products for weight loss”.

 Note, dosage is important and her conclusions need to be read with this in mind for many products use even less than the dose studied.
