Lead is a very dangerous element. It can be harmful to you if you ingest or inhale it. According to the United States Environment Protection Agent, lead poisoning can cause a number of severe effects to the neurological system.
According to a 2010 article posted by the New York Times; mercury, lead and arsenic are finding their way into most herbal dietary supplements. A good number of herbs tested by the FDA were found to contain traces of heavy metals.
Most of the samples tested were further found to contain pesticide residues. So, this leads to the big question
“Does Garcinia Cambogia contain lead?” The answer is NO.
The mother-plant thrives naturally along river-banks in South East Asia where it is native to. No pesticides are needed to nurture it to maturity because it’s extremely resilient to changes in weather and infestations.
An average Garcinia tree takes about ten years to mature. It does not require much care to thrive. Weeding may be necessary at some point but not mandatory. Pruning may be recommended but only in very rare circumstances.
The Garcinia tree is ever-green. No wonder it is a respected symbol of resilience in most parts of Indonesia and Malyasia.
Since the tree does not require pesticides to thrive, it goes without saying that the end product is 100% natural. Free from any of the heavy metals discussed above.
This therefore confirms our stand that Garcinia Cambogia is free from lead or any other hard metal for that matter.
Proof Is In The Eating
The Garcinia brand was launched here in the US some two years back as a weight loss supplement. Since we started selling, we can confirm to you that we have never come across even one complaint about it containing a heavy metal.
The only complaints we’ve heard are pretty minor and quite tolerable and include:
* Minor headaches within the first few days of use
* Stomach discomfort if taken alongside meals
* Minor rash to people who have skin issues
These complaints comprise 1% of the feedback we receive regularly from our customers. So far, we stand by the fact that Garcinia Cambogia is 99% safe for you. No any other supplement or even commercial drug in the market can rival with this high efficacy rate.
So, it is very clear that Garcinia Cambogia does not contain traces of lead. But since not all Garcinia products are equal, it is best to run a thorough check to ensure you’re getting something genuine.
- (a)Make sure the product is FDA certified
- (b) Read the ingredients list and avoid products that feature binders, sugars, caffeine and fillers in this list
- (c)Only buy from trusted merchants.
So now you know, for sure, that Garcinia Cambogia DOES NOT contain Lead, Mercury or any other hard metal that might prove dangerous to your health.
