Now I have nothing against Dr. Oz. In fact, I often quote him on this blog but it is almost always an intelligent quote in context. People who hang on his every word, often miss what he is saying. He cannot usually change your life or go completely into an area during a 1 hour show that is cut way down because of commercials! He went to school for years and reads medical journals, goes to seminars, etc and you think he can tell you everything you need to know on a subject in a matter of minutes. Another problem is that humans, who are only half listening anyway, tend to hear what they want to hear and miss the rest. That is where the title of this blog post comes in!
Americans have gone crazy buying Garcinia Cambogia because Dr. Oz claimed it to be the holy grail. Really? Did they listen to what he really said? Doubtful! Well now, guess who else was listening. That's right, manufacturers! So they started packaging the stuff as fast and as cheaply as they could. And guess what! They knew people weren't listening beyond what they wanted to hear. Whoa!
Check the package of Garcinia Cambogia that is in your house right now. Does it contain calcium? If so you might as well throw it away, flush it down the toilet, etc. Dr. Oz warned to make sure your product contains NO calcium. Why? It blocks the absorption of the HCA or hydroxycitric acid, the active ingredient in Garcinia Cambogia that makes it work! Studies have shown that adding calcium to a garcinia cambogia product makes the product unusable by the body.
I continually suggest reading labels on anything that goes into your mouth. But that doesn't do a lot of good if you don't know what you are looking for!
