“HCA interferes with an enzyme that triggers the formation of fatty acids, cholesterol and triglycerides. It helps lower blood levels of leptin (the substance that triggers hunger), increases serotonin and fat oxidation, and increases production of glycogen, leading to a filling of “fullness.” Study participants taking HCA ate up to 30% less food at every meal.”
– Dr. Harry Preuss
In other words it has a three-fold effect. Firstly it blocks fat formation, forcing the body to use carbohydrates for immediate energy, which will make the user less hungry, secondly it reduces levels of a hormone causing hunger, and thirdly it also raises levels of the so-called “happy hormone”, serotonin so you feel less unhappy about being on a diet. This third effect has the most benefits if the user decides to eat less in combination with the supplement.
HCA accelerates the liver’s ability to turn the glucose into energy, meaning the sugars you eat get burned rather than added as fat stores.
HCA lowers the level of leptin in the blood. Leptin is a hormone that triggers the feeling of hunger.
Garcinia Cambogia extract also helps the brain release more serotonin, the ‘happy hormone’ that controls our mood. Good humor should not be underestimated as a key component of a successful diet.
Garcinia Cambogia in its natural form is the tamarind fruit that grows in tropical climates. It has been widely used in cooking and as a natural medicine for centuries, proving that it is perfectly safe for human consumption.
Possible Risks and Side effects
Whilst most people will experience no side effects, extended use over a long period of time could cause some people digestive problems, and a very small percentage of people experience stomach pain and nausea. Allergy to Garcinia (very rare) causes hives and/or swelling. If any of these symptoms occur after taking Garcinia Cambogia extract, then stop immediately and see a doctor.
Buy products made in an FDA registered facility and which are cGMP certified.
Check HCA content is at least 550mg per serving do not diet if pregnant or breast feeding.
Check with a doctor if you are on other medication or are suffering from other illnesses, etc.
Do not take if you have existing digestion problems or are allergic to Garcinia Cambogia fruit.
Garcinia Cambogia accelerates the body’s ability to burn carbohydrates making it harder to add fat stores. You might want to consider combining it with a supplement like green coffee bean extract which liberates fat and converts it to energy. Note that by doing so you will have a surplus of energy and daily exercise would be an essential part of the program.
