Does Garcinia Cambogia Help with Colon Cleansing?

No. Absolutely not. Garcina Cambogia has nothing to do with colon cleanses. Saying the two work entwined is like a plumber selling you on repainting your house so your plumbing will work properly. He’s up-selling you, and he’s winning big time. I’ll demonstrate why they don’t work in a second. First, let’s look at some search results you may see on the web. We’ll hop on Google and search something like, “Garcinia Cambogia colon cleanse” Here’s what we get. Example of websites touting relation of garcinia to colon cleanse Do you notice anything funny or strange about the domains–the websites in the picture? I highlighted them in red so you could see. They all sell Garcinia Cambogia and/or colon cleanses. In fact, each of the websites is pushing both at the same time: they want you to accept a quasi-researched answer so you can buy; and there’s a good chance that if their writing is persuasive, they may get you to.

(Okay, to be fair, we actually sell both–but they’re in entirely different categories. I’m not even going to link to them because I feel bad now.)

What does Garcinia Cambogia do?

Garcinia Cambogia is well known as a “superfruit,” and is praised for its highly sought-after extract called Hydroxycitric Acid, or HCA–but it’s not in the colon cleanse business.
Garcinia Cambogia helps naturally suppress appetite.
It was brought to the public light after some television doctors and health zealots talked about its benefits. HCA, though, only comes up in conversation when referred to as a “weight loss supplement” per scientific verbiage. Its primary uses are to help suppress your appetite and [possibly] increase the release or availability of serotonin in the brain. While the bulk of these Garcinia test methods are performed on persons with high Body Mass Indexes (BMIs), the benefits of this superfruit are pretty well attested. Garcinia has been identified in the last few years as a “potential supplement for weight management and… antiobesity agent“–but that’s it. I mean it’s great if you’re looking for weight management, but it’s not going to cleanse your colon.

How else do you cleanse the colon?

There are several colon cleansing methods out there, but some are definitely gentler to your colon than others. Your intestines, both small and large, are addressed in a different way–a way that Garcinia can’t touch. A colon cleanse interacts with both the small and large intestine. When you are looking to cleanse the colon, you are tackling a few issues:
1. The “push” of your intestines (peristalsis). 2. The build-up on your intestinal walls. 3. The consistency (hardness/softness) of your stool. 4. The amount of liquid passed to soften the tool (and become chyme).
All of these reasons, and more, can be addressed by a healthy, herbal colon cleanse. You may have trouble with bowel movement infrequency and choose a gentle detox; or you may have hard or painful bowel movements and are looking for a gentle cleanse.

Paving Your Way to a Greener You

It’s a hot topic right now: a push toward a greener earth, a rapprochement with international green thumb agencies, a call to redefine and rediscover our energy methods. I get it. Vegetables and dietary supplements help you achieve your weight loss goal fastI find it silly, though, that in the wake of this wave, we are getting less and less fit. We find ourselves caring about the dumps in which we throw our fast-food wrappers more than the corporal wrapper we’ve worn since birth. The average American consumes fast food over 150 times a year, which is about 3 times a week.[1] I don’t know about you, but the last time I went to a drive-thru I did not order a salad. If I did, I ordered some nuggets atop the salad, in a sweet, faux French accent to legitimize my pitiful gluttony. I was under the impression that as long as nuggets are contiguous—or touching—greens then they are transformed into healthy morsels, and the calories average out between the two foods. No? This is news to me. Versus this statistic, we visit the other end of the stem: How do I compare to the average intake of vegetables? Well, if you eat more than 1.5 cups of vegetables a day, you are in the upper-half echelon of Americans, at least according to your intake of greens.[2] You are the cream of the crop (like, some of the crop). Now, if you are there, Is that a manageable intake? Could it be easier, or more difficult?   The cake is a lie.

It’s not cake. (The cake is a lie.)

I reckon it depends on several factors: your work, your social structure, your habits and upbringing, and your supplemental help. I’ll get to that in a second. Take, for example, a young buck (a smaller human), and look at his/her dietary habits. Eh, I’ll just recall my habits from “a few” years ago: Breakfast: Some type of cereal, either one with or… with sugar. Top that off with some fruit (that has natural sugar, like grapes, strawberries, cantaloupe, etc). Brunch: Poptart. Sometimes I’d deviate, but I would almost always choose the Strawberry one, because it was adorned with a galaxy of sprinkles that put me in Candyland with each bite. Lunch: Chicken or a sandwich, or a chicken sandwich; or chicken and a sandwich. You may have been more disciplined, with a guardian sneaking green mutant trees (broccoli) into your lunch; or you just preferred to eat leaves (salad) like the rabbits  that run too fast for you to pet them. But you get the gist. Unless you have the genes of a leek or the restraint of an acolyte, you’re gonna have a hard time getting all the vegetables you need. Here is probably the greatest of factors that will either help or inhibit your input of greens.  

Work, lurk.

Unfortunately, the bulk of your eating habits–your potential to be green–revolves around what you do during the week. And if you’re like the most of us, you frequent something of a 9-5. Most workers are in two categories: solid or fluid, as I call ’em. If you have a solid work schedule, you are likely stationed in the same spot and are given the option to buy food around your work vicinity on lunch break (and doing so you may befriend the vending machine), or bring your own food from home (a sack lunch/Power Rangers lunch pail). For the first scenario, I’ll just tell you: I’ve seen only one salad vending machine in my life. You may get up, squeeze that tight 30-60 minute time frame, get in your car, drive a mile and hustle to the nearest grocery store for a pre-packaged meal; or you may with ground-gazing eyes leer at the McDonald’s at the corner of the street (it’s only, like, 50 steps away).
Monday is like eaten, burnt toast: sad, dejected, and gross tasting.
A candid picture of Monday.
You’re going to have a bad time. But here you can also pack your lunch, provided you have the right foods at home (that were bought from the store when you weren’t hungry). I’d always recommend either shopping with an Allura Trim on you or packing one in your lunch. Work days are long (about half as long as Monday work days). Then there’s the the fluid work schedule: the one in flux. Like molecules in the fluid state that fill and conform to their container, so a worker with a fluid schedule fits her lunch to her time frame. This avails her hardly any time to tactfully buy and consume food. What’s near me? Oh, seventeen fast food chains? Nice. I’ll eat water (maybe choose a safer way…).  

The verdict.

Incorporating greens in your diet is difficult. It’s going to take time and discipline–and failure and discipline, and then some failure–and then SUCCESS (with drops of failure, of course). But we know you can do it. What’s beautiful is that greens act as a natural detoxifier. They may not be so “gentle,” but they will assist in your daily bowel movements and bodily health. And when you hike up the green intake, your body will react at first a bit strangely: “Why are you feeding me rabbit food?” Just kidding. It will put your weight loss and your overall bodily health in hyper mode!   So what are your green goals?   [1] [2]

Garcinia Cambogia: What It Is and Why You Need It

When I was growing up, there was only one type of “fruit” that I would consume, and consume voraciously I did: Fruit Loops. However, I realized that real, natural fruit was better and—sometimes—sweeter than artificial sugars. Still, there aren’t many successful diets out there that consist only in fruit consumption: but there’s one fruit that must be in your diet.Garcinia Cambogia, the wondrous fruit For the past decade Garcinia Cambogia has sent competing diet trends into a maelstrom of worry, because nothing works better than this fruit for your metabolism. Handfuls of companies are now launching weight loss products line featuring bottles of Garcinia Extract. You will notice, however, that store shelves and e-commerce sites aren’t stocked with Garcinia Cambogia products compared to other ingredients. Why?
  • If I told you one key component to losing weight is to exercise, would you disagree? Probably not.
  • If I told you may need to eat less food to acquire a caloric deficit, would you disagree? Unlikely.
  • But if I told you to lose weight you need 3000mg+ of an ingredient and I sell you 500mg, would you lose weight? Definitely not.
This is why we work; this is why we’re different: we give you more than enough Garcinia Cambogia!

Why are we different?

With 3300 milligrams of natural 60% Garcinia Cambogia in each stick (which is more than 3 times what other companies sell you in pills!), there’s no quibble to be had about which product to choose: the Allura Trim Fitness Stick.[1] You might now be asking, “What will this fruit do for me?” Just about everything you need. Here’s a few things I like about the fruit Garcinia Cambogia. It’s…
  • Natural
  • Sweet
  • Fat-burning
  • Metabolism-boosting
  • Energy-giving
  • Fun to pronounce

Why you need it

But hey, let’s get technical and talk about this fruit’s credentials. I’ll tell you exactly why you should be ingesting this fruit—and plenty of it—daily (ideally in a water soluble form for the best and fastest absorption). The weight-shedding ingredient is Hydroxycitric acid (HCA), the active ingredient extract from the rind of Garcinia Cambogia, an Indian-grown fruit. This ingredient, while integral to a multitude of biochemical processes, reduces the acetyl coenzyme A pool and thus limits the carbon units required for fatty acid and cholesterol biosynthesis.[2] In a double blind, randomized study, the subjects who completed the testing after 12 weeks (each of whom took 1000mg of HCA per day) experienced “reduced abdominal fat accumulation in subjects, regardless of sex, [especially those] who had the visceral fat accumulation type of obesity.” The study concluded that there were neither rebound nor adverse effects in the subjects, and that the fruit evinced the “prevention and reduction of accumulation of visceral fat.”[3] A parcel of what the studies demonstrated is that high-carbohydrate diets led to visceral fat accumulation, which in turn heightens one’s adiposity (or body fat). While it is true the efficacy of HCA is best demonstrated in subjects with higher adiposity, seminal studies are poised to continue for Garcinia Cambogia as people eager to lose weight pursue healthy solutions. If that news isn’t great, here’s greater news: Our Garcinia Cambogia is supremely sourced and made convenient for you. There’s no need for sketchy pills—or handfuls of them at that! With only one Allura Trim Fitness Stick per day, you will have more than threefold the amount of HCA in competitors’ formulas, and will be ready to face the day with unremitting energy!
