Natural Health Trading Garcinia Cambogia 1300 60% HCA 60 Capsules
Style number: gaca
Garcinia Cambogia is a small, pumpkin-shaped fruit also known as Brindleberry or Malabar Tamarind. Though native to Indonesia, it is also grown in India, Southeast Asia, and West and Central Africa. It has long been used in traditional South Asian dishes, including curries and chutneys. Many also use the fruit for curing fish and preservation.
The plant is also added as a spice on meals to make them more “filling” and help with the management of appetite.
The weight management benefits of the plant are due to a natural substance found in the nutrient rich rind of the fruit. The natural extract is known as Hydroxycitric acid (HCA), which has been found to dramatically hasten weight management efforts.
Additionally the plant aids emotional eaters, as it supports balanced mood , and healthy serotonin levels, which support balanced temperament and normal sleeping patterns.
What is HCA (Hydoxycitric Acid)
HCA is an active ingredient extracted from the rind of Garcinia. It inhibits an enzyme called Citrate Lyase. This enzyme is responsible for creating fat cells from carbohydrates and converting carbohydrates into cholesterol and triglycerides.
How does HCA work?
The HCA extract from Garcinia Cambogia supplement aids in weight management by doing two things: It supports healthy fat metabolism and it helps manage your appetite.
HCA supports healthy fat metabolism by inhibiting a key enzyme that your body needs to make fat from carbohydrates: Citrate lyase. Usually carbohydrates or sugars that are not used immediately or stored in other forms are converted into fats. When HCA inhibits citrate lyase, the fat-making process is halted and Instead of converting sugar to fat, the liver will convert the sugar to glycogen – this glycogen is then used as energy. This process supports lower levels of fat cell production in the body and supports healthy balance of good and bad cholesterol and triglycerides.
HCA also helps manage appetite appetite by supporting healthy serotonin levels. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter in your brain that makes you feel good and low levels may drive many people into emotional or reactive eating.
By supporting healthy serotonin levels, HCA supports balanced mood and discourages the tendency to react to stressful situations with food. As you eat less, your body senses this and it releases stored fat in your fat cells.
