Garcinia Cambogia extract is derived from the fruit of a plant or tree, known as Garcinia gummi-gutta. Other names can also be Kudampuli, or Malabar Tamarind. These plants grow naturally in parts of Indonesia, Asia, and Africa, especially South India. The native people of these areas, usually use it to add a sour flavor to their sea foods. Another use, is for preservation of fish and/or curing fish. It seems that the natives also have found that this can also be used as an ingredient to make meals more “filling”. Some Malaysia villages use Garcinia Cambogia to make a soup that is consumed before meals, this has the effect of blocking their appetite and causing them to feel full sooner.
The fruit of the plant looks like a small green pumpkin. The active ingredients are found in the rind or skin of the fruit. There are large quantities of Hydroxycitric Acid contained in this part of the fruit. This HCA is something that occurs naturally, therefore producing an all natural substance. HCA is the primary ingredient in all Gracinia Cambogia extract products. The native people have used, and eaten this plant for many years. When used in moderation there should be no problems associated with it.
How does it work?
One of the first things that one will notice that HCA will do, is to block or suppress the appetite. This happens because the HCA increases the levels of serotonin in the body. You tend to feel better because the serotonin is the neurotransmitter in your brain that makes you feel good. Many anti-depression medicines work by increasing levels of serotonin. Low levels of serotonin cause people to feel anxious and depressed. These people tend to eat to relieve those feelings, causing them to over eat, this causes them to become overweight. Increased levels of serotonin will improve mood and cause people to react by eating excess food. Eating less will cause the body to release the excess stored fat for the body to use as energy.
Another way that Garcinia Cambogia works is to block an enzyme called citrate lyase. This enzyme is responsible for the conversion of carbohydrates or “carbs” in sugars and fats. So, fats that are consumed, don’t get to make it to the cells of your body. They passed along and expelled with the rest of your body’s wastes. This is another way that HCA also helps you to lose weight.
This fruit that is not native to the US, can be used as a powerful tool to help with weight loss. It can suppress the appetite and also cause less fats to be absorbed by the body. These two things working together usually result in steady weight loss.
