What Is Garcinia?
Garcinia cambogia, a citrus fruit native to Southeast Asia, has traditionally been used to treat a wide variety of ailments, from constipation to intestinal parasites. Today, when you do an internet search of the term "Garcinia cambogia," the result is more than 11 million hits, most of them having to do with weight loss.
An extract from the fruit's rind, hydroxycitric acid (HCA), is the key component responsible for Garcinia cambogia's weight-loss properties. Various studies have suggested that HCA promotes weight loss by means of increasing serotonin release, thereby leading to appetite suppression. Others postulate that HCA inhibits the release of certain enzymes responsible for carbohydrate metabolism, thereby increasing your body's ability to use fat as fuel.
No matter how it works, ever since it was mentioned on TV, you'll find plenty of people who swear by it as the next fat-loss hope.
What Are The Uses Of Garcinia Cambogia?
Most Garcinia cambogia products are marketed as fat-loss supplements, since the active ingredient, HCA, has been found to be effective in supporting satiety (feeling full) and reducing body weight.
Several studies have shown Garcinia cambogia extract, given in doses of 1,000-1,500
milligrams per day, reduced body weight and body fat in overweight participants, all without reports of serious side effects
Furthermore, 300 milligrams of HCA taken for 14 days has been shown to reduce body weight and the number of calories that subjects eat over the following 24 hours. And only five days of supplementing with 250 milligrams of HCA may be effective at increasing fat metabolism and enhancing exercise performance in women.
