What is Garcinia Cambogia?
An indigenous plant to India and parts of Asia, Garcinia Cambogia is a small fruit that resembles a miniature pumpkin. Garcinia Cambogia “Fit” uses this fruit’s extract and rind for its weight loss promoting properties.
HCA – What is it?
Hydroxycitric acid is a derivative of citric acid that is found in select tropical plants, including Garcinia Cambogia. It is also a common ingredient in Indian and Thai curries and chutneys.
HCA and Weight Loss
Research suggests that Garcinia Cambogia aids in lipid metabolism and glucose absorption. Animal studies have shown that HCA can delay intestinal glucose absorption, which prevents blood sugar spikes and absolves the body of the need to produce high levels of insulin. Sudden large spikes in blood sugar are known to be correlated with a higher risk of obesity. The slow release of glucose and insulin also means satiety, leaving you feeling fuller for longer.
HCA and Cholesterol
Studies are also suggesting that HCA can have a positive effect on lipids, reducing total cholesterol, LDL lipoproteins, triglycerides and serum leptin levels. Leptin circulates in the body in direct proportion to one’s body fat. It is also referred to as the ‘full hormone’ because it has been shown to send satiety signals to the brain to let it know that the body has finished eating. These same studies have shown that HCA increases HDL cholesterol levels and the excretion of urinary fat metabolites. Though further studies are needed, some researchers believe it exerts these lipid-regulating effects by inhibiting an enzyme in the body responsible for converting carbohydrates to fat for storage.
Take two capsules with breakfast and one with lunch.
