Garcinia Cambogia Extract gained notoriety on the Dr. Oz television show back in 2012, when the host extolled its effectiveness as “the newest, fastest fat buster.”
Garcinia Cambogia is a rich, pumpkin-like fruit from Southeast Asia that's purported to hold the remedy to weight loss in the rind of its fruit. Adding this ingredient to meals is considered to be effective in making meals more filling.
In some villages in Malaysia, Garcinia is used to make a soup that's eaten before meals for weight loss because of its appetite-blocking abilities. Garcinia Cambogia is packed with high levels of HCA, helps naturally suppress appetite, prevents build up of bad cholesterol and reduces the amount of triglycerides, stopping new fat cells from forming.
Garcinia Cambogia acts as a fat blocker, not allowing fat cells to form and allowing the fat to pass through your system quickly instead of storing it inside the body. As a result, HCA helps enable the body to become more effective at burning off calories.
