QUESTION: Can you take pure garcinia cambogia extract and have the same results if you had gastric bypass surgery?
ANSWER: This is a topic that only a doctor can give advice on.
Gastric bypass is a major operation with obvious risks involved. It involves changing your physical structure (“shrinking” your stomach) which then influences your eating habits. Gastric Bypass surgery works to decrease your food and caloric intake. When followed by a doctor-recommended diet program, garcinia cambogia may decrease your weight, potentially in a dramatic way. No surgical procedure should be taken lightly or without a doctor’s recommendation.
Garcinia Cambogia works differently to produce a healthy body. It changes how your liver utilizes calories (which get broken down into sugar) to prevent fat cells from forming and instead convert calories into energy. This actually leads to an increase in lean muscle mass and a decrease in body fat, not just a decrease in weight. It works to change your body composition.
Additionally, Garcinia Cambogia positively influences Serotonin levels which helps limit ‘emotional’ eating and control cravings. It also leads to a decrease in the stress chemical Cortisol, resulting in a reduction in the accumulation of belly fat. Many subjects have also shown to get more restful sleep while taking Garcinia Cambogia.
Because Garcinia is a natural extract found in a commonly found fruit, the tamarind fruit from India, it is available at a great price. Gastric Bypass surgery is much more expensive.
Garcinia Cambogia is an all natural extract thatmany people experience weight loss results with. It is available without a prescription. With so many doctors and patients speaking positively about the weight loss effects of a natural extract, it may be worth it to give Garcinia Cambogia a try before committing to a major intrusive operation such as Gastric Bypass.
