A small fruit called Garcinia Cambogia, from South Asia has suddenly streaked to the top of the diet world products. The extract from its rind can contain up to 95% HCA, (Hydroxycitric acid) which has proven to eliminate fat cells and suppress appetites. With these promises, the market is swamped with brands declaring dramatic weight loss in one to eight weeks. The tested facts have determined that this product does work but depends on carefully controlled use.
How does Garcinia Cambogia work? The body uses enzymes to convert unused energy into fat deposits in the body. The HCA in Garcinia Cambogia blocks these enzymes, preventing the formation of fat. Stored fat cells are broken down which increases the metabolism and burns fat. HCA also increases Serotonin in your brain which decreases the appetite and gives extra energy.
To get all of this as proclaimed, it is vital that only the best product is used. The extract should contain at least 60% pure HCA with no additional ingredients other than a small portion of potassium to help with HCA absorption. Most brands do not pass this test. Many companies use supplements with cheap fillers, binders, and other synthetic ingredients. Few have quality control testing. The manufacturer should have a solid reputation, offer a high-quality product, and provide third-party monitoring and testing. A good company will stand behind the product with a money-back guarantee and a year’s warranty.
With Pure Garcinia Cambogia, it is recommended that a dosage of 1600 mg be taken each day. While the average adult can safely take 2800 mg, the lesser amount was used in all trials. Appetites will be suppressed best by dividing this into two doses each day. The best time to take Garcinia Cambogia is on an empty stomach, one-half hour before a big meal. So for most people that will be 30 minutes before breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
With no filler and only the HCA and potassium in the extract, there is little problem of side effects for the normal adult. However, there is a warning for certain conditions. It should not be taken by children, pregnant women, or nursing women. Anybody with any form of dementia should not use it at all. It seems to promote the symptoms. Diabetics are warned that it can lower blood sugar suddenly, and for those people who are on cholesterol-lowering drugs, there can be a reaction.
Some studies are being done to determine if Garcinia Cambodia makes it easier for the body to use glucose, the sugar cells need for energy. This may have an effect on type 2 Diabetes and High Cholesterol and should be monitored by the family physician.
The active ingredient in the fruit’s rind, HCA, has boosted fat-burning and suppressed appetite in studies. It appears to block an enzyme called citrate lyase, which the body uses to make fat. It also raises levels of the chemical Serotonin. Studies suggest that there is evidence to conclude that Garcinia Cambogia is effective for weight loss. No wonder so many people from around the world have a lot of success while using Garcinia Cambogia.
