A few months back, I was sent two bottles of Garcinia Cambogia HCA from Healthy Bastards. Healthy Bastards is a healthy living company that provides assorted weight loss products that are GMO-free, Vegan, and contain no fillers or binders. Garcinia Cambogia HCA is their most popular product and is a natural fat burner.
I’m always looking for different products to try to help get of both fluid and extra weight, so I thought this might be something good to try. However, I ended up with very mixed results.
When I first started taking it, I followed the dosage on the bottle. I didn’t notice much of a difference at first, but after a few days I saw a very slight decrease in my weight. This kept up for two or so weeks, but then I started having random stomach cramps and slight nausea. I ignored it & didn’t think much of it. The following day, after eating lunch, I suddenly got very shaky and dizzy. Within a few minutes, I was throwing up. I wrote it off as some bad food, but the nausea persisted for several days. I stopped taking the pills for a few weeks until I was sure everything was back to normal, and then tried them again.
Like the last time, I had no issues until about two weeks in. We had eaten dinner, watching a movie, and had just gotten into bed. I hadn’t been in bed long before the nausea hit me. The next 8 or so hours were nothing but vomiting & I was sick for several days after (which I blogged about at the time & wrote it off at a stomach bug initially). Since then (over the past month), I’ve tried starting taking the pills again, but only taking one every few days or so. That seems to do better, but again, after just so long I start getting stomach issues so I stop again.
Overall, I don’t really know what to say. I know a lot of people who have taken it and had great results, and I wish I was one of them. I don’t know if it’s all coincidence, or if I’m eating or doing something I shouldn’t while taking it…but I do know I probably won’t try it again since it just doesn’t seem to agree with me. Healthy Bastards have several other products, including a join formula, krill oil, & a colon cleanse. You can check them out at their website.
I received the above mentioned product for free to help facilitate my review. All opinions are 100% my own.
