Garcinia Cambogia has been used for many years as a condiment in Thai and Indian cuisine; however, more recently it has grown in popularity as a health food supplement.
The rind of this Garcinia Cambogia is dried and extracted to produce Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA) whihc has been found by researchers to inhibit the enzyme in your body which converts excess blood sugar into fats.
It also reduces the production of fat and cholesterol in the body and it has been demonstrated that this extract has the ability to reduce fat production by 40 – 70%, up to 12 hours after eating a meal and even accelerates the breakdown of excess body fat you may already store.
An 8 week double blind control study in 1993 confirmed that people who took HCA in combination with chromium lost an average of 5 kilos over an 8 week period. Further research at Brandis University revealed that HCA plus Chromium helps curb the appetite, reduce food intake and help regulate obesity without the side effects associated with most appetite suppressant drugs.
Garcinia Cambogia is a completely natural food, being used in foods for hundreds of years and researches have satisfied themselves that HCA has no adverse side effects and is in fact even safer that the citric acid commonly used as a preservative in foods today.
Also known as Brindleberry, Malabar Tamarind and HCA.
