    Garcinia Cambogia Extract in Weight Loss Medicines

    Garcinia Cambogia Extract is obtained through water extraction of fruits of Garcinia Cambogia which is grown in India. This extract has hydroxycitric acid (HCA) which prohibits the activities of enzyme Citrate lyase.

    Citrate lyase enzyme in our body convert extra carbohydrates into fat. Even if you do not eat fat  in the diet and consumed lot carbohydrates then Citrate lyase enzyme converts extra carbohydrates into fat so your lipid level in the blood will go up.

    This is the reason this Hydroxycitric acid from Garcinia Cambogia Extract is used in weight loss medicines.

    100% Garcinia Cambogia Extract is a Halal extract because water is used to extract it from fruits of the tree but in capsule or in tablet form it may be not available as 100%.

    Garcinia Cambogia Extract is reported as toxic in the medical literature. Garcinia cambogia extract is available in capsules too which may be made from pork gelatin.

    The active ingredient in Garcinia cambogia extract is Hydroxycitric acid but the capsules or tablets may also contain inactive ingredients which may not be Halal.

  • alsalam alikom, thank you my brother for the REXONA and DOVE advice. I will email REXONA to ask about presence or absence of alcohol in perfume . And as BHT is mentioned in DOVE PURE ingredients so i will ask them about any Animal Derived ingredients are used in their products. but may i ask about "TRIETHYL CITRATE, TRIETHYL ACONITATE, BUTYLPHENYL METHYLPROPINAL" are they hala ingredients as did not mentioned in your previous answer? - ahmed
  • AOA

    Butylated HydroxyToluene is a chemical and Halal but it is not available in 100%  vegetable oil or pork or soy glycerin is used as a carrier. Ask them what is the carrier they use in Dove. I am sure they use vegetable oil. If they say vegetable oil then BHT is Halal.

  • alsalam alaikom, please be patient to read the letter till the end as my question come at the last. First I apologize for the daily questions. But as per your education instructions jazak Allah khiran I am searching the suitable deodorant to use as we here in the Arabian Gulf region are sweating a lot. I tried my best as I learnt from the site and found two brands marketed to the Middle East. THE FIRST BRAND IS REXONA 0% ALCOHOL with “butane, isobutane, propane, aluminum chlorohydrates, cyclopentasiloxane, alpha isomethyl ionone, hexyl cinnamal, hydroxycitronellal, citronellol, limonene, disteardimonium hectorite, perfume, dimethiconol, benzyl salicylate, C12-15 alkyl benzoate, water, " AND THE SECOND IS DOVE PURE NO ALCOHOL , NO FRANGRANCE, NO PARABENS, NO COLOURANTS with “butane, isobutane, propane, aluminum chlorohydrates, cyclopentasiloxane, water, PPG-14, helianthus annus (sunflower) seed oil, C12-15 alkyl benzoate, octyl dysanol, propylene carbonate, citric acid" EVEN I SEARCHED ABOUT TRIETHYL CITRATE (E1505) AND FOUND IT IS HALAL BUT MY QUESTIONS IS: in Rexona I COULD NOT IDENTIFY SOME INGREDIENTS AND THEY ARE: “TRIETHYL ACONITATE, BUTYLPHENYL METHYLPROPINAL” and in Dove Pure I DO NOT KNOW ABOUT “BHT”) so please help me, are these ingredients are Halal so I can use or no? - ahmed
  • AOA

    Rexona contains perfume where alcohol is hidden ingredient. You have to contact the manufacturer about presence or absence of alcohol in perfume because they are only one who know it. Bht is not listed in both products.

    unknown BHA or BHT Mineral, Chemical, Synthetic based Ingredients A chemical preservative but always avaialble with fat based carrier. Halal if vegetable oil is used as a carrier. Not Halal if animal fat is used as a carrier. A Halal or Kosher symbol on the food package containing BHA or BHT indicate only vegetableoil is used as a carrier.

    In order to use Dove the company has to claimed No Animal Derived ingredients are used in their products.

I understand if you do not prefer to answer. Jazakallah khairan. - Anonymous user

    How could a Muslim practicing doctor prescribed a vitamin D2 containg gelatin which could be from pork. Muslims doctors make lot money but they do not care about Halal status of medicine they prescribed. I a food scientist has to help Muslims but not Muslims doctors. I think they are busy making money and I am here doing every thing free for Muslims. You need Vitamins D does not matter it D2 or D3. Here are Halal vitamins D:

    halal Natural Vitamin D 3 1000 IU Vitamins Solgar Available at Vitamin Shoppe Stores 09-08-13

    A doctor has argue me last Friday at a masjid about Halal status of food the masjid is selling after Juma Prayer, at one time they are providing crounton which could contain pork rennet Romano cheese. I told them there are no Halal croutons in USA. They also provide non Halal cookies. The doctor is defending it and questioning my Halal criteria. But they are very good Muslims doctors too.

    Masajid management do not care about Halal status of foods they sell because it taste good and appered good. But they have to answer to Allah on the day of judgement.

    Please provide above vitamins d to you are doctor ask what minimum Internal Unit of vitamin D 2 you can use and also ask about Vitamin D3.

    There are no Halal vitamins or Vitamin D at CVS or Walgreen or Riteaid or any phatmacy in USA.

               
    MUSLIMS ARE NOT PAYING ATTENTIONS TO HALAL VITAMINS

    Many Muslims are using non Halal vitamins from stores like Wal-Mart, Walgreen, CVS Pharmacy, GNC. This is because of lack of knowledge about the Halal status of those vitamins. MCG get every day a question from Muslims asking about the Halal status of xyz vitamins. MCG is providing help in picking up the Halal vitamins after it researched at Vitamin Shoppe stores which are located in every city of USA. MCG advises Muslims to check the Halal status of vitamins before consuming them.

    Many major brand of vitamins are not Halal such as: Centrum, Equate, Citracal, Nature Made, Vitafusion, One A Day, GNC, Flintstone, Nature Beauty, Walgreen, Geritol, Nature Bounty, Garliq, Estroven, Disney Gummies, Fiber Smart, Caltrale, Finest Nature, One Source, Lill Critteers, Culturelle, Philps, Ultimate Florea, Viactive, Elatins, Os-Cal, Spring Valley, Schiff, Stevia, Optimum Nutrition, Mega Red, Ocuvite, Alive, Centrum Kid, Active Kid, Spring Valley, Bayer, CVS Vitamins and Kirkland Signature. They are not Halal because they are not Halal or Kosher certified or do not have a Halal or Kosher symbol on the package.

    Even if they do not contain gelatin, they are still not Halal because they add without restriction any Haram hidden ingredient. Halal or Kosher certification protects Muslims from adding Haram Hidden or Processing Aid Ingredients which are not required to be mention under ingredients statement by FDA.

  • Alsom alikom,Sorry if I did not understand clearly your AOA answers sometimes. now I become very confused brother ... As you answered Naheel on 04/10/2014 when asked if all alcohol types are najes and which perfume and cosmetic to use so your answer was (Only alcohol free fragrance is Halal. Alcohol free and animal derived ingredients free cosmetic can be used if it does not contain carmine red color.) and in other hand I asked you on 21/09/14 about all alcohol types and what we can use in cosmetic care product ,and you answered me (Except Methanol is very toxic causes death if consumed. However, unlike ethanol, methanol is highly toxic and unfit for consumption. It is used to denatured ethyl alcohol in Denatured alcohol used in products which are not consume. Since denatured alcohol is a toxic and can not consume so ulema allowed to use in personal care product.) So now I have many cosmetic care product with alcohol denatured or biyotan alcohol or benzyl alcohol or cystil alcohol "from a halal origin", shall I use and my prayer will be acceptable or no. - ahmed
  • AOA

    Fragrances are never made with denatured alcohol but it is added as an ingredients in personal care products. There is no reason for confusion. Ulema allow denatured alcohol in personal care but they never say alcohol containing personal care products can be use.

  • Salam brother. I've seen the cosmetics in the list on this website but none of the brand is confirmed to be halal. About most of the brands its written that if they don't use alcohol and carmine , they can be used. But it's very vague term for a lay man like us who don't understand the chemical names by looking at ingredients. And some of the information has become outdated as some of it is from afew yrs back and companies keep on changing their products. Plz plz plz take some time out to find halal cosmetic . Allah has blessed u with knowledge and understanding, u can help alot of muslim ladies. I've stopped using cosmetics because of this big confusion. Recently I found gabriel cosmetics but problem is they r using st johns wort in their makeup and from a health point of view it's not good as it can interact with our body mechanisms at a molecular level. So it's not recommended to use it. Thanks - aiman

    The issue here is that I am the only person doing research on foods which is most important, restaurants, personal care products, medicine and cosmetic. I never go to cosmetic section to read the ingredients of lipstic, make up. I contacted the cosmetic companies for use of animal derived ingredients in cosmetic and alcohol in freagrance. In order to find caramine I have to read the ingredients of each cosmetic. Sisters who used cosmetic can help me to find carmine and alcohol in fragrance in this regard like many Muslim consumers send me about alcohol information in flavor of a food. There are some sisters who send information about animal derived ingredients in cosmetic. I appreaciate your comment about my knowledge which Allah has given me to help Muslims. From now inshallah I will try to update the cosmetic section if time allows me and my health allows me. I can not even spend time at supermarkets for foods reserach because I have two foot surgery in last 4 months and still I am seeing doctor every week. and I can not walk normal. Inshallah Allah will give me shifa of my right foot.

    The issue is with pigment in which alcohol can be used. 100% Natural and Vegan does not mean Halal unless they also claim alcohol free.

    Allantoin is a plant extract and I do not know what solvent they use to extract. Since you mentioned gel but I do not see any ingredient you mentioned provide gel. It need further investigation. The manufacturer is best source to ask any animal derived ingredients and alcohol.

    MUSLIMS ARE NOT PAYING ATTENTIONS TO HALAL VITAMINS

    Many Muslims are using non Halal vitamins from stores like Wal-Mart, Walgreen, CVS Pharmacy, GNC. This is because of lack of knowledge about the Halal status of those vitamins. MCG get every day a question from Muslims asking about the Halal status of xyz vitamins. MCG is providing help in picking up the Halal vitamins after it researched at Vitamin Shoppe stores which are located in every city of USA. MCG advises Muslims to check the Halal status of vitamins before consuming them.

    Many major brand of vitamins are not Halal such as: Centrum, Equate, Citracal, Nature Made, Vitafusion, One A Day, GNC, Flintstone, Nature Beauty, Walgreen, Geritol, Nature Bounty, Garliq, Estroven, Disney Gummies, Fiber Smart, Caltrale, Finest Nature, One Source, Lill Critteers, Culturelle, Philps, Ultimate Florea, Viactive, Elatins, Os-Cal, Spring Valley, Schiff, Stevia, Optimum Nutrition, Mega Red, Ocuvite, Alive, Centrum Kid, Active Kid, Spring Valley, Bayer, CVS Vitamins and Kirkland Signature. They are not Halal because they are not Halal or Kosher certified or do not have a Halal or Kosher symbol on the package.

    Even if they do not contain gelatin, they are still not Halal because they add without restriction any Haram hidden ingredient. Halal or Kosher certification protects Muslims from adding Haram Hidden or Processing Aid Ingredients which are not required to be mention under ingredients statement by FDA. MCG has a list of Halal multivitamins, individual vitamins, prenatal vitamins and fish oil or omega 3 on our website under "Vitamins". Please use this list of Halal vitamins.

    Most capsule are made with pork gelatin so avoid it or use fish gelatin capsule or vegetable based capsule.

    Gelatin in any food product or ingredient or Vitamins or medicine is not Halal unless it says Fish Gelatin under ingredients statement in USA and Canada

    MCG is receiving many inquiries about gelatin foods or ingredients or in vitamins whether it is Halal or not.

    The important point is none of the gelatin carrying food products or ingredients or vitamins are Halal unless it says fish gelatin under ingredients statement. The use of fish gelatin in foods in USA is on rise because of demand by Muslim consumers and Jewish consumers. Food companies have booths at IFT Food Expo in July 2013 in Chicago promoting use of fish gelatin. It is important to know the fish gelatin from cat fish is not consider Halal or Kosher. Beta Carotene suppliers use fish gelatin as  a processing aid ingredient or hidden ingredient in Beta Carotene powder form so that it mixes well with other ingredients and fish gelatin is not mentioned under ingredients list.

  • AOA

    Except Methanol is very toxic causes death if consumed. However, unlike ethanol, methanol is highly toxic and unfit for consumption. It is used to denatured ethyl alcohol in Denatured alcohol used in products which are not consume. Since denatured alcohol is a toxic and can not consume so ulema allowed to use in personal care product.

    03/22/14Gelatin in any food product or ingredient orVitamins or medicine is not Halal unless it says Fish Gelatin under ingredients statement in USA and Canada

    MCG is receiving many inquiries about gelatin foods or ingredients or in vitamins whether it is Halal or not.

    The important point is none of the gelatin carrying food products or ingredients or vitamins are Halal unless it says fish gelatin under ingredients statement. The use of fish gelatin in foods in USA is on rise because of demand by Muslim consumers and Jewish consumers. Food companies have booths at IFT Food Expo in July 2013 in Chicago promoting use of fish gelatin. It is important to know the fish gelatin from cat fish is not consider Halal or Kosher. Beta Carotene suppliers use fish gelatin as  a processing aid ingredient or hidden ingredient in Beta Carotene powder form so that it mixes well with other ingredients and fish gelatin is not mentioned under ingredients list.

    08/15/13Vitamins: What make them Haram or Non Halal

    The following factors make Vitamins as Haram or Non Halal:

    1. Gelatin:

    Gelatin listed under ingredients statement or part of the capsule makes vitamins

    as Haram if gelatin was obtained from pork or Non Halal if it was obtained from non zabiha beef.

    Only Fish gelatin is Halal and it should be mentioned under ingredients statement.

    The capsules must be made with cellulose to be consider Halal.

    2. Magnesium Stearate:

    Magnesium Stearate is helps in flowing the other ingredients and is a fat based emulsifier and it could be obtained either from pork fat or vegetable fat. Only vegetable fat Magnesium Stearate is consider Halal.

    3. Hidden Ingredients or Processing Aid Ingredients:

    Every vitamin is made with Hidden Ingredients or Processing Aid Ingredients because FDA allows manufacturer to add a maximum of 2% of formula as Hidden Ingredients or Processing Aid Ingredients. FDA also allows manufacturer not to mentioned under the ingredients statement. The hidden or processing aid ingredients must be from Halal sources.

    Halal or Kosher symbol on the vitamins package protects Muslims from added Haram Hidden Ingredients or Processing Aid Ingredients.

    4. Coating on Vitamins:

    Pharmaceutical glaze, vegetable beet glaze, Shellac, Lac Resin are used to coat the vitamin tablets to protect them from breaking. All glazes are made by dissolving insect secretion Shellac in alcohol and applying the glaze on the tablets. So please do not buy the vitamins with coating.

    5. Extracts:

    Many source of vitamins are also obtained from plant extracts such as Bioperine (black pepper fruit extract), Tomato Extract (lycopene), Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract and Panax Ginseng Root Extract. They become Non Halal if alcohol was used as a solvent. It is better to avoid those vitamins with extract otherwise you have to call the manufacturer to find out whether alcohol was used as a solvent or not. Most of the time alcohol is used for extraction from plants.

    6. Natural Flavor:

    Alcohol might be used as a solvent in natural flavor so it is better to avoid consuming vitamins with natural flavors. Majority of natural flavors are made with vanilla. If vanilla is used as a natural flavor then the natural flavor will not be Halal.

    7. Chewable Vitamins:

    All chewable vitamins specially for kids are made with natural flavor. You have to contact the manufacturer whether alcohol was used as a solvent or not.

    8. Ingredients where alcohol was used during its processing and they are added to vitamins:

    Alcohol is used during the manufacturing of some ingredients such as Stevia which is a natural sweetener called Steviol Glycol. It is extracted from Stevia plant by water but crystallized it by use of ethyl alcohol.

    06/08/13Pork in majorvitamins brands

     

    PORK IN ALL MAJOR BRANDS OF MULTIVITAMINS TABLETS

    MCG has found out that the following major brands of Multivitamins tablets or caplets on counter are made with pork derived gelatin or other ingredients:

They are not Halal because they are not Halal or Kosher certified or do not have a Halal or Kosher symbol on the package.

    Even if they do not contain gelatin, they are still not Halal because they add without restriction any Haram hidden ingredient. Halal or Kosher certification protects Muslims from adding Haram Hidden or Processing Aid Ingredients which are not required to be mention under ingredients statement by FDA. MCG has a list of Halal multivitamins, individual vitamins, prenatal vitamins and fish oil or omega 3 on our website under "Vitamins". Please use this list of Halal vitamins. How to search Halal vitamins on our website: Please write vitamins or prenatal vitamins or fish oil (for Omega fish oil) under the search box then click Food Product by Category then click Show Only Halal then click search. You will get a list of 45 Halal vitamins, 3 Halal prenatal vitamins, 6 Halal fish oil (Omega fish oil) and where to buy them.

  • As Salam o walekum, I am using "men solutions" by "Great Clips" for my hair, it contains Cetearyl Alchohol, which i found is to be halal. But there are also other chemicals(not specified as alcohol), which I never know. Please let me know if you can check this product and by checking the ingredients if you can suggest me if using this product is halal or haram. Jazak Allah - Akhtar Raaz
  • AOA

    I have no information. Here is defination of Ceteary Alcohol whose source only known to the manufacturer:

    From our FAQ:

    What are Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Butyl Alcohol, Lauryl and Oleyl Alcohol used in Personal Care Products. Are they Halal:

    All above alcohol are not Ethyl Alcohol but they are fatty alcohol or fatty waxes made from either animal fat such as pork fat or vegetable fat such as soy fat. Only manufacturer will know the source of these ingredients. If any personal care company says that no animal derived ingredients are used in their products containing above alcohols it means they are obtained from vegetable fat.

  • Hi, I know this website is based mainly on food but I was wondering about medication. When I'm tired because I haven't had enough sleep, I take my friend's dexadrine (capsules for ADHD) to keep me awake and alert at work and school. Is that haram? - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    This website has lot over the counter medicine and few prescription medicine and their Halal status. The capsule could be made with pork. But only manufacturer knows whether capsule is made with pork gelatin or non zabiha beef gelatin. There should be no animal derived ingredients used in the capsule. You have to contact the manufacturer. If they said pork gelatin was used in capsule but no animal derived ingredients inside capsule. In that cas eyou take the inside medicine put in a spoon of apple sauce and consume it only if company said no animal derived ingredients used in the medicine.
