GARCINIA CAMBOGIA
Articles by a Naturopathic Doctor (N.D.)
Last Updated: September 11th, 2015

Garcinia Cambogia extract, a source of HCA (Hydroxy Citric Acid) reduces the formation of new body fat - safely.

Garcinia Cambogia is a type of super fruit native to Indonesia, Asia, and Africa. Traditionally used as a nutritious food, and often used as an ingredient in curries and stews, a specific extract of Garcinia has more recently been researched as a supplement with potential weight loss support properties.

GARCINIA CAMBOGIA

This little fruit is sweeping the weight loss world by storm!

HCA
Garcinia Cambogia is a source of HCA, which is the active ingredient in Garcinia responsible for it's weight management reputation. HCA is believed to suppress hunger and therefore support healthy weight loss in individuals who are exercising and following a healthy calorie reduced diet.

HCA has also been studied for its potential ability to burn fat, as well as inhibit fat synthesis. HCA is believed to inhibit an enzyme in the body that is responsible for converting carbohydrates into fatty acids, cholesterol and triglycerides. This means that when you eat and take Garcinia at the same time, it is possible to make less body fat from the food that you've eaten.

Garcinia Cuts Appetite
There are also a few animal studies suggesting that HCA may increase serotonin in the brain. Based on these findings, some researchers believe that HCA may improve mood and prevent emotional eating. Further human studies need to be conducted before these claims can be made conclusive.

Garcinia Cambogia extract is often included in appetite suppressing/blood sugar balancing combinations. Along with herbs like gymnema, and cinnamon, and minerals like chromium, HCA may be especially helpful in cases of type II diabetes. Many diabetics need to be careful to follow strict guidelines in terms of portion sizes, along with avoiding sweets or foods high in saturated fats. HCA may help these individuals to feel satisfied with less food, and decrease cravings for high sugar, high fat foods, thus supporting healthy weight loss and better blood sugar control.

HCA and Garcinia:  Safe Super Fruit
HCA has been used as a food for years without negative side effects. Little is known about the safety of long-term use of Garcinia Cambogia extract as a supplement for weight loss, or potential interactions it may have with medications or natural supplements. None of the clinical trials to date have reported any serious side effects. Due to lack of information, it is not currently recommended for use in pregnancy and breastfeeding. Dosage recommendations range from 500 to 1000 mg before meals, to a suggested maximum dosage of 2,500 mg/day.
