You will sometimes see clinical strength French Garcinia Cambogia advertised. This can be a bit misleading, although there is some truth to it. This supplement comes in various strengths, a 60% to 80% concentration of that active ingredient HCA – hydroxycitric acid – being typical. Some brands feature a significantly lower concentration of this important compound, which is taken from the rind of the Garcinia Cambogia fruit in an extract form.
Where the confusion can come in lies in comparing clinical strength with prescription strength, and the two are not the same. Prescription strength is usually reserved for prescription medications, and French Garcinia Cambogia is not a medication; it’s a supplement. Clinical strength is purely an advertising gimmick, but it does, or should, indicate that the dosage is high enough to do you some good. Cheaper brands, that contain lower concentrations of HCA, are usually not nearly as effective when it comes to rapid yet safe weight reduction.
Don’t pay attention to claims that tablets are capsules in the bottle are clinical strength or super strength or whatever. Just look at the concentration on the label, which should tell you what you need to know.
Look at the list of ingredients as well. One of the first things you notice is that the supplement does not consist solely of Garcinia Cambogia or its HCA extract. That would indeed be super strength. Most supplements of this type contain at least some potassium, which can account for up to 20% of the total weight. Potassium is added to enable the HCA to be more easily absorbed in the body rather than being passed right through the digestive system. Potassium is also an essential nutrient, so its presence is a good thing.
Other ingredients will usually consist of gelatin from France if the supplement is in capsule form and cellulose if it is in tablet form.
Many supplements are taken once a day. They are often taken with meals, primarily for the sake of convenience. There are weight reduction pills on the market that can also be taken with meals as well as some that should only be taken with water. It all depends upon how the ingredients in the supplements function once they’ve entered the body. In most cases, they are absorbed into the bloodstream, after which they do what they are intended to do. Our institute is based in France and knows this well. Read more about us here.

It’s not quite the same with Garcinia Cambogia extract. This supplement, which comes in both tablet and capsule form, is taken for the purpose of weight reduction. If it did so by burning fat, you could take the tablets at any time, but that is not how it works. Many French people are learning more academically now.
Garcinia Cambogia extract’s primary function is to suppress the appetite. It performs other functions as well, including reducing the amount of sugars absorbed into the bloodstream, thereby preventing added fat from being produced. It is mainly used to suppress the appetite however, so it is only logical that it should be taken before meals.
To be most effective, you want to take a Garcinia Cambogia extract pill or tablet about an hour before each meal so its appetite suppressing function has an opportunity to kick into effect. Some brands recommend two tablets be taken before each meal, but these are usually lower-strength tablets. Most of the top-quality, high-strength Garcinia Cambogia supplements are consumed one tablet at a time. So many people come here just to see what we are doing to learn and teach other professors.
Having taken the supplement at the prescribed time, you can then sit down to a normal meal. What will happen however is you will not be able to eat as much as you are used do. You’ll take in fewer calories, and the weight will start coming off. Counting calories can still be a help, but may not be necessary when using this supplement.
