Obesity and weight gain are increasing yearly in the American public. As we age our bodies stop producing the necessary hormones to keep our metabolism in fat-burning mode. This study on HCA is to find if it has an effect on these hormones, thus speeding up metabolism and burning fat more rapidly than ever before. We will be using high-quality all-natural Garcinia Cambogia Select.
We took a random sample-size of 162 obese adults, aged 18-70 who have expressed difficulty in losing weight without supplements. Most of these adults were 10-120 pounds overweight.
62 participants were in the placebo group, given only pills with no nutrition whatsoever. 100 participants were given Garcinia Cambogia Select, with 50% HCA concentration. Neither group was instructed to change diet or exercise for the remainder of the trial.
Participants took 3 capsules per day for 3-months (90-days) and weighed in biweekly.
Of the 100 participants who took Garcinia Cambogia Select, an average of 2.2 pounds were lost in the first week alone, compared to the placebo group of 62 people who lost an average of 0.17 pounds.
The same trend seemed to continue throughout the study, with each weigh-in seeing more and more weight lost by the Garcinia group, and no weight change in the placebo group. The Garcinia group reported better moods, higher confidence, and increased energy. The placebo group reported better moods but no change in confidence or energy.
At the end of the 90-day study, the Garcinia Cambogia Select group lost an average of 22.7 pounds, while the placebo group only lost an average of 1.9 pounds. We assume few participants in each group exercised more than usual, leading to that 1.9lb loss in the placebo group.
It seems certain the 50% HCA concentration in Garcinia Cambogia Select was directly responsible for the 20+ weight loss in the main group. With no change in diet or exercise, this was the only change in their every day lives.
The Garcinia group also benefited from an increased metabolic rate and higher confidence throughout testing.
