How Does Garcinia Cambogia Help You Get Ripped?

There has been a lot talk about this fruit called Garcinia Cambogia. Unless you are living under a rock, you might not have heard of it. Garcinia Cambogia is a pumpkin shaped fruit which is mostly found in South Asia. It grows in southwest India, Myanmar, and Indonesia. This fruit is also called Malabar tamarind. This fruit was used in cooking and as an aid in stomach aches. In later years, that is around 1960’s, scientists found a substance called Hydroxycitric acid (HCA) in the outer skin of the fruit.

There was a lot of confusion regarding HCA. The scientists were not sure of the properties of HCA. Experiments were conducted on rats during all these years. The rats did show weight loss. But for this experiment to be successful, it needed to show positive results on human subjects. There was a report in 1998, confirming this bad news.

So How Come HCA Is Effective Now?

There has been extensive research on HCA. The research shows that HCA is a supplement which helps reduce weight if teamed up with exercise and diet. You cannot just consume Garcinia Cambogia extract and expect it to work miracles. How does it work? Read carefully. HCA suppresses your appetite by increasing your level of satiety, tricking your body to eat less.

When you eat any carbohydrates, an enzyme called citrate lyase turns all sugar and starch to fat. HCA blocks this enzyme, turning those carbs directly to energy. As your satiety – satisfaction of full stomach- level is high, you eat less. It also increases the serotonin levels, which helps emotional eaters. No more emotional eating.


What Does Research Say About Garcinia Cambogia?

Further researches have proved that a right amount of HCA can be a great tool in weight loss. In these researches, it was found that there are three types of HCA’s. One blends with calcium, second with potassium and third with magnesium salts. The salts in the supplement help the free HCA in not becoming an inactive compound. These salts will help absorb HCA easily in your body. The most remarkable result of HCA supplements is appetite control.
