About Garcinia Extract (Hydroxy Citric Acid)
Garcinia cambogia extract is the calcium salt of hydroxy citric acid (HCA), which is obtained from water extract of Garcinia cambogia fruit . It is non-toxic, tasteless, odorless powder and found to be very effective herbal alternate for controlling obesity and cholesterol by inhibiting lipogenesis in our body.
Garcinia Cambogia is a relative new-comer to the ranks of Western herbalism, but has been used for thousands of years in the Orient as a food supplement. It is used as an appetite suppressant and to inhibit the absorption and synthesis of fat, cholesterol and triglycerides. In other words, it is a dietary aid.
The most common health benefits of garcinia cambogia extract are as follows:
Lowers Cholesterol and Blood Pressure: Researchers have found that garcinia cambogia naturally lowers cholesterol levels by reducing blood lipid levels. Likewise, it also has been shown to increase your body’s production of HDL cholesterol, which is the “good cholesterol.”
Suppresses Appetite: Obviously the biggest reason for weight gain is due to diet. Garcinia Cambogia helps to increase serotonin levels in the body, which are responsible for appetite and also control our mood. This can help reduce caloric intake significantly.
Blocks fat storage: One of the biggest advantages of Garcinia Cambogia over other weight loss supplements is its’ ability to block new fat cells from being formed. Excess calories from carbohydrates are normally converted into fat cells, but garcinia cambogia blocks this from happening. Therefore, the carbs are immediately burned off and no weight is gained.
Improves metabolism: Our metabolism is a series of chemical reactions that are affected by numerous factors. Garcinia Gambogia helps to stabilize these chemical reactions, which in turn will increase the rate at which you burn fat. Obviously, this is beneficial to your health and waist line and you can significantly reduce your weight within a short period of time.
Improves immune system health: Garcinia Cambogia has been shown to help improve your body’s ability to fight disease and sickness. Likewise, researchers noticed a significant reduction in the symptoms of those suffering from the flu, mono, or common cold after taking garcinia cambogia for only a few days.

Stuff works. Been taking 1000mg of garcinia cambogia half hour before I eat for about 3 years now. Lost about 20lb at the start and now my weight stays pretty steady no matter what I eat!

This product does the job. I was taking it morning, noon, and night and I was never hungry. I did, however, have to just go to two times a day because I was never hungry and when I did try to eat something, it was nowhere near enough food to eat to keep calorie intake and that was not healthy for my body. Nonetheless, it is excellent for bodybuilders and weightlifters who what to cut and control their physic all year long.
