    Garcinia Cambogia

    Seen this on Dr. Oz. Has anyone tried this and did or does it work?

    Have you googled this? Seen in WebMD http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supple...tName=GARCINIA

    Like anything, there may be a few side effects, and there has been very little scientific study on it for interactions, etc. Sounds very intriguing, though. I didn't see the program.

    Dr Oz always has some sort of miracle "drug" - one does have to be careful of potential side effects. Check with your druggist to see what he/she says.

    Boy does Dr Oz talk about a lot of "Miracle" weight loss products. And he stands behind every one. Seems like a person could spend a lot of money trying all of these.

    Yelp! Looked into it, they want you to also buy another product and only pay shipping per bottle, then they want to charge u $89.00 for your next lot , I don't know if it is the same product as Dr. Oz, but I know it was Green Coffee Bean.

    Dr. Oz is turning into a real quack. I used to have respect for him, but not anymore. Every other day is some "MIRACLE" pill. Wonder how much money he is making off them.

    Interesting article here. Long, though.

    Also, read the reviews on Amazon. Almost exactly evenly divided between good and bad.

    I would not try any of that sort of stuff. I don't watch him. No secret to weight loss, less calories in - more calories used. Hard to do but, it works, no possible side effects.

    I don't watch much of Dr. Oz anymore. He seems to just "sell" anything these days for ratings. Just doing what he's told to do so everyone can make money. He doesn't support all these products.

    I got an email from my DGD when someone hacked her email address from the same jerks with their green bean junk....I had to go to my bank and get them to stop my debit card because, like a dummy, I ordered it. I'm still waiting for a refund...cost me $99.00 to let them stick it to me....but I filed a complaint with the BBB in Utah where they're based and also had my bank put a fraud alert on them, AND let the "Dr. Oz Watch" know what happened. I am po'd...can you tell? Leave that junk alone...it's NOTHING BUT A SCAM!!!!!

    If you watch the show you will know Dr. Oz does not endorse any brand, none. He says if you see any brand with his picture or his name it is a fraud. If you see a his picture online on any product brand, it is a fraud. He says do not buy it.

    I ordered it but not the site listed. It wasn't very high but after 2 bottles , no weight loss noted. I ,too, have lost respect for him. I had not been watching him but watched that show and have seen several after that . I see he is after the almighty dollar.

    Garcinia has been around for many years. We had it when I worked in the herb shop over 12 yrs ago. Like anything else it is NOT a miracle pill but it does help. Along with being sensible. The herbs are not scams but the sellers are.

    Garcinia Cambogia

    Try SwasonVitamins.com as a source to buy same at a good price ($2.99/60 caps, 400mg [take 800mg/day]; says it is an Indian herb for weight management). I have been trying to use daily, but owing to DH health issues, have not been faithful. I recognize that my jeans are feeling looser at my waist and belly when clean and not stretched. I also feel no sides effects.

    Dr. Oz has to keep his ratings up. Seems there is always some herb, oil, bean or berry he pushes that will cure what ails you...if not, it will prevent it from happening, make you thin, give you energy and keep you from aging.

    Always a high pricetag attached.

    If it worked I would buy it all!

    But you would be very poor/broke! Stopped watching him over a year ago.
