What rate done with Simply Garcinia is concentrate all that HCA inside 7yh tiny vegetable capsule you take three times a day, before each meal, with a glass of water. Where Does it Come From.
Simply Garcinia is naturally extracted from the Garcinia Cambogia fruit found in India and Southeast Asia for its high concentration of HCA (Hydroxycitric Acid).
For centuries Garcinia Cambogia has been used in cooking and seasoning of the local foods there.
All of these studies are so-called randomized controlled trials, which are the gold standard of scientific experiments in humans. The biggest of the studies included 135 overweight individuals, which were split into two groups (7): Treatment group: 1 gram of Garcinia Cambogia Extract, 3 times per day, taken 30 minutes before meals.
Placebo group: The other group took dummy pills (placebo). Both groups also went on a high-fiber, low calorie diet. These were the results of the 12 week study, which was published in The Journal of The American Medical Association (a highly respected scientific journal): Heymsfield, et al. 1998 As you can see, both groups lost weight. But the group taking Garcinia Cambogia extract actually lost less weight (3. 2 kg 7 pounds) than the placebo group (4. 1 kg 9 pounds).
The researchers also looked at body fat percentage. The placebo group lost 2. 16, while the group taking Garcinia Cambogia lost only 1. However, the difference was not statistically significant, meaning that the results could have been due to chance. More Studies In another study with 89 overweight females, Garcinia Cambogia did lead to 1. 3 kg (2. 8 pounds) more weight loss compared to placebo, over a period of 12 weeks. They found no difference in appetite between groups (8).
Late in 2010 the peer-reviewed Journal of Obesity published a meta-analysis of studies testing the garcinia as a weight loss aid. Of the 23 trials they identified, 12 were methodologically sound enough to include in their analysis.
The analysis revealed that some statistically significant weight loss occurred, but the magnitude of the effect is small and the clinical relevance is uncertain.
They also found that gastrointestinal adverse events were twice as likely in the hydroxycitric acid group as in the placebo group. When you are considering the potential benefits of products look for meta-analysis studies that take in all the sound research available. One-off studies that get a significant result are not evidence of anything. Only when an effect is repeated in many studies by many scientists should you believe.

So, my Top Secret Garcinia experience was neither super impressive, nor super disappointing. I did like that there were no jitters and no feelings of nausea (some of the other brands, like Simply Garcinia left me feeling a bit woozy on an empty stomach).
The weight loss with Top Secret Nutrition was eh, average, but again, if you have a sensitive stomach, it's a pretty decent trade off.
