Did you heard about Garcinia Cambogia? This fruit with an exotic name is relatively still unknown to the general population, but its increasingly gaining popularity as one of the most effective ingredients when it comes to weight loss.
Garcinia Cambogia is a plant growing in regions of Southeast Asia, India and Central Africa. Looks like a small pumpkin-sized orange and, depending on the area where it grows, can be found in yellow, green or red color shades.
Although in Asian countries Garcinia is a long time ingredient of the local cuisine (used as a spice), the positive effects of the extract that is produced from the dried fruit of the plant, have been discovered only recently.
The Garcinia Cambogia stops excessive appetite and food cravings that occur in stressful or emotional situations. Its extract is a rich source of hydroxycitric acid, which prevents the conversion of carbohydrates into fats and helps to reduce body weight.
How Garcinia Cambogia acts?
The main ingredient of Garcinia is hydroxycitric acid, or HCA, which stops the actions of a particular enzymes in our body. When these enzymes are working all the carbohydrates – that we fail to spend and convert into energy – are converted into fat reserves. In addition, Cambogia reduces the appetite by increasing serotonin levels in the blood, improves the mood and stops food cravings. By boosting serotonin it prevents the negative effects of stress hormones, reduces cholesterol levels and increases energy.
Because all of this, Garcinia Cambogia is certainly a must have food in a today’s world of stress, hurry, fast food and bad habits.
