Research for this article done by our friends at Whatworks.org. Garcinia Cambogia is a type of fruit that is grown natively in Indonesia. Although the plant is from the Indonesian region, it can be found all across India, throughout certain parts of South East Asia, and even in certain regions of Centralized Western Africa. For ages it has been considered a tradition in many food dishes in Southern Asia, including tenacious curries.
Although the fruit falls short, in terms of taste, it does add dietary fiber and protein to any meal, and is added to make dishes more filling. In some areas of Asia, Garcinia Cambogia is the main ingredient of a soup that is to be eaten before meals. Because of the powerful appetite curving abilities of the plant, many consider it to be an end all to over eating and obesity.
Because the market is full of designer weight loss drugs, it can be hard to believe that there is in fact, an alternative. Research scientists believe that a portion of the rind of the fruit is a powerful, natural extract that can speed up the weight loss process. Many marketing companies have tried to bury the wondrous powers of this plant. In fact, until just recently, it was nearly impossible to distinguish designer products from Garcinia.
Scientists call the extract of the plant hydroxycitric acid (HCA), and also believe that with daily use, the potent HCA can triple a persons average weight loss! The average weight lost during a one-month span is four pounds. This is ground breaking information; never before have these numbers been achievable in such a short amount of time.
The way in which the plant extract HCA works, is that it puts a block against fats by stopping an important enzyme from converting carbohydrates into fatty tissues. The body usually turns carbs that arent used immediately into what we call fat. The fat cant continue to build up if the enzyme isnt allowed to convert carbs to body fat. This fact has been a well-kept secret and has been known, used and treasured by celebrities and others.
As well as blocking the fat creating enzyme, HCA also plays an important roll in increasing your bodys natural serotonin levels. Serotonin is produced when the body feels satisfied, in terms of appetite, stress levels, surrounding and mood. When all of those are in good condition, serotonin will help balance your weight.
