How Garcinia Cambogia Extract Works for Weight Loss


WeightLoss-Express.com New Look During his latest TV show, celebrity healer Dr. Oz recommended the extract of Garcinia Cambogia for fast and natural way for burning fat. The garcinia extract found in the tamarind, or gambooge plant has long been used in Southeast Asia in cooking and food preservation, and now it becomes popular with its weight loss properties.

The Garcinia Cambogia is a yellowish or greenish fruit in the shape of a pumpkin and as big as an orange or grapefruit. It is native to Indonesia and it’s commonly used in Asia and Africa as a curry compound and fish curing. Traditionally the fruit and the extract are believed to activate digestion due to the sour flavor. In India and Sri Lanka the garcinia extract is also commonly known for its antibacterial qualities which make it both nutritional and healing essence.

The application of the garcinia extract for weight loss is not newly discovered – in traditional food preparation it is used as an appetite suppressant. Although there is no scientific evidence of the efficiency for burning fat of the extract alone, now researchers claim that when combined to regular exercises and a well-balanced diet, the garcinia extract can accelerate weight loss process, so as green coffee bean extract or raspberry ketone.

According to results from a recent study, people who take the natural garcinia cambogia extract, or hydroxycitric acid (HCA), can drop averagely four pounds per month.

HCA has been observed in human body to inhibit citrate lyase, an enzyme that plays a crucial role in fatty acid biosynthesis. When the body doesn’t use immediately the carbohydrates they are usually changed into fats, but this process can be stopped by preventing production of citrate lyase. The HCA not only stops the production of fat, but it also slows the construction of bad cholesterol, or LDL, and triglycerides.

The extract also leads to greater production of serotonin which suppresses appetite. The neurotransmitter in the central nervous system which contributes to feelings of well-being and happiness, serotonin, improves your general mood and attitude and erases anxiety and depression. So in general, if you overeat when you’re upset, you will eat less when you’re happy.

Of course, if you want better results, take supplements with the garcinia extract paired with regular exercise and controlled portions. The extract alone isn’t magical at all, so without a proper weight loss strategy, it will do you no good.
