Japanese Clinical Trials

One group were given the Garcinia Cambogia extract and the other group was given a 'placebo'. However, neither of the two groups were told which group had been given the Garcinia Cambogia, and which group were only given the placebo.

Prior to the study commencing, measurements of every subject's height, weight, body mass, (BMI), waist and hip circumference were recorded: and, at the end of the first twelve weeks of the study, both groups were given a placebo for the next four weeks, in order to assess any possible 'rebound' effect.

Additionally, some clever checks and balances were built in to these tests; because, 2 weeks before the test started, at the 12 week point, and at sixteen weeks: after they had been taking the placebo for 4 weeks, the subjects were given computer assisted tomography scans around their middle areas to assess and record any changes.

It was found that, after sixteen weeks, the group taking the Garcinia Cambogia extract had significantly reduced their belly fat, their subcutaneous and total fat areas when compared with the group who had been taking a placebo.

The findings strongly indicated that Garcinia Cambogia did, in fact, reduce the accumulation of visceral and abdominal fat of the test participants, regardless of age and gender. Consequently, it was proposed that Garcinia Cambogia may be useful int he prevention and reduction of abdominal fat accumulation.

There are many different sources where the general public can buy G Cambogia; however, the Japanese studies clearly stated that there needs to be an optimum formulation in order to achieve the best weight loss results. So, we decided to do some research and discover which source gave the best formulation and the best value for money: here's what we found.
