Dr. Oz has been looked at many as the doctor with all the weight loss answers. However, many critics have also been up his neck for promoting many weight loss products. Many claim that Dr. Oz is paid to endorse specific weight loss products.
However, Dr.Oz has denied any such claims and denounces any shops or manufacturers using his name to drive sales. But at a closer look, do the products that Dr.Oz recommends on his show for weight actually work? We will look at 3 of such products and their user reviews to see whether they work.
This is perhaps one of the most popular weight loss products since its feature on the Dr. Oz show. Garcinia cambogia contains an active component; Hydroxycitric acid (HCA). This component is obtained from the rind of Garcinia cambogia fruit after it is dried. HCA works together with the body to increase its metabolism. This leads to an increased calories and fat burn to produce the energy required by the body to maintain the high metabolism. HCA also controls the amount of food you consume as it creates a filling effect in the stomach.
HCA also works with emotional feeders to increase the feel good hormones and reduce stress hormones that lead to cravings of unhealthy foods. Scientific research and consumer reviews have shown that when 1500mg of the pure Garcinia cambogia extract with 50% or more HCA is taken, you lose about 10 pounds in 8 weeks without any changes in lifestyle and more if exercises are incorporated. This weight loss product definitely works.
African Mango Extract
With origins in the West African countries, African mango is a known food supplement or fruit. Recently, it has been in the weight loss limelight. The extract is obtained from the seed of the African mango. This means it contains high levels of fibre. The fibre when taken in form of the supplement creates a full effect in the stomach leading to a full effect. This leads to the consumer eating less food per sitting. The extract also contains high levels of the B vitamins. These are known to increase the metabolism in the body which leads to burning of fat.
African mango extract also lowers LDL cholesterol which reduces visceral weight loss. Consumers have reported loss of up to 1 pound per day upon consumption of 400-800mg/day of African mango extract per week.
