Why Garcinia Cambogia is a Weight Loss Wonder Fruit
Are you looking to shed pounds? If so, you've likely heard of garcinia cambogia, increasingly promoted as a weight loss wonder fruit over the past few years - and with good reason. The rind of this small, pumpkin-shaped fruit contains HCA (hydroxycitric acid), shown to help people double, even triple their weight loss potential.
In one randomized placebo-controlled study that followed 60 obese participants for eight weeks, the group given a 1,320-mg dose of HCA each day lost an average of 14 pounds - more than twice the average 6.1 pounds lost by participants given the placebo. Plus, the participants in the HCA group invariably reported reduced appetites.
Also known as tamarind, garcinia cambogia originated in India and today is grown throughout Southeast Asia, West and Central Africa. It's a flavorful ingredient in multiple dishes including curries and chutneys. The HCA extracted from this wonder fruit 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 risk of emotional eating and your curbing overall appetite. Second, HCA blocks fat by inhibiting a key enzyme that your body needs to make fat from carbohydrates.
Study after study has validated the hype surrounding garcinia cambogia. That's why it's among the best-selling products of Metabolic Research Center, which specializes in helping clients to lose weight and keep it off by adopting healthy diets and lifestyles.
