WHAT IS GARCINIA CAMBOGIA?
Garcinia cambogia is a plant that is native to Southeast Asia. It’s also grown and readily used for cooking in India and other parts of Asia and Africa. The most useful part of Garcinia is the yellow-coloured, pumpkin-shaped fruit, which is also called assam fruit.
HOW DOES GARCINA CAMBOGIA WORK?
There’s a phytochemical found in Garcinia, called hydroxycitric acid (HCA), and it has a dual effect on supporting weight loss. Firstly, it can support healthy serotonin levels and help reduce appetite. Secondly, HCA can have an impact on enzymes related to fat metabolism in the body.
THE SCIENCE OF HUNGER AND FAT ABSORPTION
HCA from Garcinia cambogia has the ability to support a reduction in appetite by way of supporting healthy serotonin levels in the brain. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that affects mood and sleep patterns. Healthy serotonin levels have been shown to help decrease food intake, enhance mood, and help reduce weight gain. HCA from Garcinia cambogia can support weight loss by helping reduce the activity of an enzyme called ATP-citrate-lyase (ACL). This enzyme helps convert excess carbohydrates (sugars) into fat in the body. When HCA reduces the activity of ATP-citrate-lyase, fat build-up and storage can be reduced in the body.
