Life and Food Garcinia Cambogia Review and Giveaway!

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Garcinia cambogia is a small, pumpkin-shaped fruit, sometimes called tamarind. Though native to Indonesia, it is also grown in India, Southeast Asia, and West and Central Africa. Adding this ingredient to meals is considered to be effective in making meals more “filling".  In some villages in Malaysia, garcinia is used to make a soup that is eaten before meals for weight loss because of garcinia’s appetite-blocking abilities.
The HCA extract from garcinia cambogia supplement aids in weight loss by doing two things: It helps to block fat, and it suppresses your appetite. Read more on Life & Food's site!

For this review my I had my mother test these for me.  I decided the best way to get her feedback was in an interview format.  Below are my questions and her answers.

Laurel: How long have you been taking these supplements?
Alison: 30 days

L: This product boasts that it is stimulant free and also promotes a balanced, lighter mood by boosting Serotonin levels without giving you the jitters as some weight loss supplements do. Do you think that is true?
A:  I have been taking 2 in the morning (as per directions) and have noticed a definite coffee-like boost but not jittery. I was concerned that they might affect my sleeping at night but that hasn't happened at all. Balanced lighter mood? yes, I'd say it does get me out of the early morning doldrums - better than a cup of coffee. I've taken them on an empty stomach - no problems.

L: Calling the product allergen-free, they use a vegetable capsule with no fillers or binders, mixing Garcinia Cambogia fruit rind with calcium and potassium for added absorption your body needs. Did you have any adverse digestion problems?
A:  No digestion problems at all.

L: They say that the single biggest factor contributing to weight-loss benefits are dependent on the potency of the Garcinia Cambogia extract used. Since Life and Food uses a strengthened 800 Mg per capsule, as opposed to most 500 Mg capsule products out there, the upgraded strength formula enhances the effects and accounts for reduced absorption rates when taken by various individuals. Did you experience any weight loss while taking these supplements?
A:  I don't get the mid-morning blahs - maintains the energy level, thus keeping me from snacking. I have lost about 5 pounds without trying in the month that I've been taking the capsules.

L: Do you intend to continue taking this brand of Garcinia Cambogia?
A:  Yes I do! I am surprised and pleased with the results!
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.


  1. I'd like to try it mainly for the energy and reduced appetite -- or at least reduced cravings for "junk"!

  2. I lack energy but my appetite never goes away.. I would like to have more energy and have less cravings. Junk food is my weakness.

  3. I would gift it to a friend that said she wants to try it. kekagel(at)

  4. I want to lose ten pounds so this will help me.

  5. ill try anything that can help boost energy. I work over nights and if it helps me going through the night ill try it! plus the weight loss would be a much needed much appreciated side effect.

  6. My husband actually takes this daily! I would live to take it too!
