Weight loss supplement question – counteraction/compliment

I’ve been trying to do my own research and can’t seem to find an answer to my question. Would it be safe to take Garcinia Cambogia Extract along with Shaklee Metabolic Boost? Would it be too much or not necessary? Do the two products have different benefits or work together to do different things? I’m trying to figure out if these two would counteract or compliment each other or is it not wise to take the two together? It appears the only thing the Garcinia Cambogia has in it is 150mg Calcium, 150mg Potassium, and 1600mg of Garcinia Cambogia Extract HCA (no fillers, binders, etc) that one would take twice a day. The Metabolic Boost, one would take three times a day.


Hi, thanks for your question. Garcinia Cambogia has some evidence of being useful for fat loss, however the bulk of these studies were in animals and not humans. To date I am not aware of any significant studies that say it is effective for fat loss in humans In addition in those animal studies one of the side effects was testicular toxicity. Regarding the other product, I am not familiar with it, but taking a brief look at the ingredients, there was nothing that would contribute to accelerated fat loss. Green tea supplements have not shown to be effective and have not provided the health benefits that drinking real green tea has either. From a cost, health and efficacy perspective I cannot recommend either product.
