If you watched the Dr. Oz segment about Garginia Cambogia Extract you know that he started and ended the presentation with a warning that he does not sell, recommend, or endorse any particular brand.
If you didn't see the Oz Show but are being bombarded with magazine and TV ads, online pop-ups, served ads (which appear when reading or searching for something related), and unsolicited (spam) e-mails about this revolutionary fat busting supplement, please let me fill you in.
What Dr. Oz Said About Garcinia Cambogia Extract

Dr. Oz' Advice on How to Choose a GCE Product
Look for Garcinia Cambogia Extract or GCE with at least 50% HCA (naturally occurring Hydroxycitric Acid) with Potassium added, but no binders, fillers, or artificial ingredients.
Research shows 1500 to 3000 mg a day to be safe and effective for appropriate people. If you eat three meals a day, that would be 500-1000 mg before each meal. The efficacy of GCE is dose dependent: the more you take the more benefit you can expect. Dr. Oz cautioned not to exceed 3000 mg a day without your doctor's approval.
How to Take a Garcinia Cambogia Supplement
Garcinia Cambogia pills should be taken on an empty stomach 30 to 60 minutes before eating. If there's food in the stomach, the ingredients bind to food particles and become ineffective. Potency in the body peaks about two hours after taking. You want that to occur when your body is processing the meal just eaten. That is the moment in time when the GCE will prevent maximum sugar and carbohydrate calories from going to fat and cause them be converted to energy instead.
Who Should Not Take Garcinia Cambogia
Be aware that Garcinia Cambogia is an herbal supplement. Therefore safety and possible drug interactions have not been studied. Cautionary advice is based on current knowledge of how Garcinia Cambogia works.
Garcinia Cambogia should not be taken by pregnant or breastfeeding women, diabetics or those on medications that affect blood sugar unless doctor approved.
If you would like to take more than 3000 mg a day, check with your doctor first.
