What is Garcinia Cambogia?

Garcinia Cambogia is the scientific name for the Garcinia gummi-gatta fruit. The fruit is also known by the other names, such as brindleberry, Malabar tamarind, or gambooge, and is native to Indonesia. The fruit has the appearance of a small pumpkin, and is usually green in colour.

The fruit is popular in Southeast Asia and India, and, along with the rind, is used in many traditional recipes, such as curries, where the sour flavours of the fruit are seen as a crucial ingredient said to activate digestion. The fruit is also used in chutneys, as well as curing fish and preservation. We also use it as an ingredient in our diet drops.

How does Garcinia Cambogia aid weight loss?

Within the skin or rind of the fruit, there is naturally occurring substance which research as shown could help to increase the rate at which someone loses weight, as well as possibly helping to reduce appetite and improve mood.

It is thought that this substance works by blocking the body’s production of Citric Lyase. This is an enzyme that your body uses to make fat from carbohydrates, which are usually turned into fat when they are not stored or used for other purposes in the body. Research suggests that the introduction of Hydroxycitric acid will prevent the formation of fats from carbohydrates, and consequently decrease the production of bad cholesterol and triglycerides.

The Hydroxycitric acid in Garcinia Cambogia is also thought to increase the production of serotonin in the body. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that operates in your digestive tract to regulate intestinal movements, as well as in the central nervous system where it regulates mood, appetite and sleep. If your serotonin levels are low, you can begin to feel depressed or anxious, and feeling like this will cause a lot of people to turn to food for comfort.

 

How effective is Garcinia Cambogia?

Garcinia Cambogia is thought to work in two ways, preventing the body from creating fat, and also suppressing your appetite. Taking Garcinia Cambogia could encourage these two factors within the body, and may help to increase your weight loss alongside a healthy diet activity plan.

Seeing the results from your possible weight loss, and feeling the suggested loss of appetite and serotonin boosting properties of Garcinia Cambogia, could also help you to have a more positive outlook on life, and maintain a great sense of motivation that will see you commit to a healthy diet and lifestyle long-term.
