Double Your Weight Loss Potential with Garcinia Cambogia
If you're working to lose weight, chances are you've seen many headlines promoting the benefits of garcinia cambogia. But is it truly effective? Absolutely, weight loss researchers say. This small, pumpkin-shaped fruit (also called tamarind) has been used for centuries by Asian and African villagers to help control appetite, shed pounds and maintain weight loss.
Garcinia cambogia originated in India and today is grown throughout Southeast Asia, West and Central Africa. It's used in many dishes including curries and chutneys. Its active ingredient, found in the fruit's rind, is hydroxycitric acid (HCA) and research shows that it can help to double, possibly even triple weight loss.
In one randomized placebo-controlled study that followed 60 obese participants for eight weeks, the group given an HCA dose of 1,320 mg per day lost an average of 14 pounds, compared to just 6.1 pounds lost by participants given the placebo. Plus, the participants in the HCA group invariably reported reduced appetites.
HCA works in two ways. First, it increases your body's levels of serotonin, a neurotransmitter linked with feelings of happiness and wellbeing. Serotonin can suppress your drive to react to stressful situations with food, thereby decreasing your appetite and your risk of emotional eating. Second, HCA blocks fat by inhibiting a key enzyme that your body needs to make fat from carbohydrates.
Proven results of HCA make garcinia cambogia supplements one of the most popular products offered by Metabolic Research Center. It's just one of the many tools that our weight loss counselors may recommend in helping you to effectively shed pounds. Call 800-501-8090 to schedule a consultation at the MRC location nearest you.
