In contrast with other diet supplements, Garcinia Cambogia Extracts are best imbibed before meals or on an empty stomach. When taken with food or drink, some of chemicals in food can reduce the efficacy of the HCA extract. As most clinical studies have indicated, it is best to take GCE supplements 30 minutes to an hour prior to each meal. You may want to skip the supplement if you are certain that the food you are taking has no fat content since its flat-blocking ability won't be of much use. But if you think you could end up indulging in foods that love to consume, take one as its appetite suppressing ability becomes effective in controlling your food intake to the barest minimum.
Recommended dosage GCE's recommended dosage depends on the person's age and general health condition but can be pegged at between 500 mg and 1000 mg prior to each meal and not to exceed 3000 mg each day. The HCA in the Garcinia Cambogia suppresses appetites and works best when taken an hour before a meal Current medical and scientific information has yet to determine an appropriate range of doses for the GCE and it is best to bear in mind that while naturally formulated diet supplements are generally safer than prescriptive artificially formulated drugs, they may not always be safe so that dosing is important. Consult with your doctor, pharmacist or health care practitioner before attempting to use any diet supplement and follow the recommended dosing prescribed or indicated in the directions on labels of legitimate diet supplements. Also, be aware that there are imitation or fake diet supplements advertised with GCE that are no better than placebos.
