Bioefficacy of Garcinia Cambogia
Garcinia Cambogia: No fad support
With so many gimmicks out there in the weight loss world today from food and supplement products, it can be difficult to discern which are backed by sound science and which are just great marketing ploys. Metabolic Research Center is committed to offering evidence-based support with all of our suggestions. If you have read anything about garcinia cambogia, the tiny yellow-ish green tropical super fruit, you may be wondering if it can help you reach your weight loss goals. Let's take a closer look.
How a fruit can aid your weight loss goals
Garcinia cambogia brought to us via India contains an active bio-chemical compound called hydroxycitric acid (HCA). Not only does the research show that this compound can help manage weight loss effectively, it has also been shown to assist in mood regulation and curbing of appetite in some individuals.
If you are familiar with leptin, how garcinia cambogia elicits its affects is easy to understand. Leptin, a hormone in the body partially responsible for feelings of satiation may be affected by garcinia cambogia. In studies, garcinia cambogia was found to have leptin-like effects on curbing hunger. This is excellent news considering so many of us wonder if we are eating out of boredom or true hunger.
Because weight gain and obesity have been linked to depression, low self-esteem or feeling down, garcinia cambogia plays a role here as well. Low levels of serotonin have been linked to these feelings. Garcinia cambogia has been shown to help improve serotonin levels as well, helping to improve mood and overall wellbeing.
