The desperation over the need to lose weight and in keeping it off has made some people to go and spend thousands of dollars on different kinds of weight loss products just to end up disappointed, again, in the end. I’ve always believed that an organic way to anything especially when it comes to our health is best which compelled me to know more about garcinia cambogia.
I learned that experts have been doing the research on this plant for a while now and everything proved that the extract of this fruit can very well aid in the weight loss process of a person. After being featured on The Doctor Oz Show and being termed as “The Holy Grail of Weight Loss” weight loss with garcinia cambogia became well known. And after hearing what Dr. Oz thinks about it, I took it to myself to do some research myself and here is what I found out.
What is garcinia cambogia?
Originally found in Indonesia, pure Garcinia cambogia is a small tropical fruit that looked like a small pumpkin with thin rind and segmented fruit meat inside. It was found that the extract from the dried rind of this fruit has been used as an Ayurvedic medicine in India so long ago. Today, it was discovered that garcinia cambogia has high hydroxycitric acid content that can block the sugar-to-fats conversion in the human system. Not only that because it was also discovered to have the ability to suppress the appetite which makes it a very effective aid for losing weight.
How it works?
Garcinia cambogia prevents the conversion of sugar inside the body into new fat cells. As no new fat cells are produced, no fat cells can accumulate which will prevent weight gain. It can also help suppress a person’s appetite, improve emotion to prevent stress eating while maintaining a person healthy condition.
Clinical studies over the garcinia cambogia prove to have these other functions:
1. It modifies the liver’s natural process of converting unused sugar into fats;
2. By improving the serotonin levels in the brain, the person taking garcinia cambogia will experience improved mood which will prevent them from emotional eating;
3. It can prevent the buildup of bad cholesterol inside the bloodstreams; and
4. Garciania cambogia is high in flavanoids which promotes the body’s overall health.
What makes it different from the other weight loss supplements?
With proper diet and exercise, people who’ve tried the garcinia cambogia lost more weight compared to the previous weight loss supplements that they’ve tried. And since it’s an herbal weight loss supplement there are no side effects that were reported among all the subjects who participated in the clinical trials.
It’s quite noticeable that reduced cravings and hunger is experienced by those who take the garcinia cambogia. As explained by the experts, this is because of the improved levels of serotonin that makes a person feel good, and healthy, despite less food intake.
Garcinia cambogia also help stabilize the levels of cortisol improving the mood of the person which prevents any onset of depression or stress while on the process of weight loss. Cortisol is the hormone responsible for inducing stress and depression that are usually experienced by a person on a diet. People who can seem to ignore hunger urges, which results to binging, most likely have high levels of cortisol in their system.
Garcinia cambogia is now widely used in different weight loss supplements products but in order to get the above mentioned results, the supplement should indicate that it contains at least 50% hydroxycitric acid (HCA) and doesn’t use any kind of artificial fillers at all.
