How Garcinia Cambogia Can Help You Lose Weight and Belly Fat
Garcinia Cambogia is a popular weight loss supplement.
It is derived from a fruit of the same name, also called Garcinia gummi-gutta or Malabar tamarind.
The peel of the fruit contains high amounts of hydroxycitric acid (HCA), which is the active ingredient believed to be responsible for most of its weight loss benefits
May Reduce Your Appetite
Studies have shown when using Garcinia Cambogia supplements you do eat less.
May Block Fat Production and Reduce Belly Fat
Most importantly, Garcinia Cambogia impacts blood fats and the production of new fatty acids.
Human and animal studies show that it may lower high levels of fat in your blood and reduce oxidative stress in your body.
One study also suggests it may be especially effective at reducing the accumulation of belly fat in people who are overweight.
In one study, moderately obese people took 2,800 mg of Garcinia Cambogia daily for eight weeks and drastically improved several risk factors for disease:
- Total cholesterol levels: 6.3% lower
- “Bad” LDL cholesterol levels: 12.3% lower
- “Good” HDL cholesterol levels: 10.7% higher
- Blood triglycerides: 8.6% lower
- Fat metabolites: 125-258% more excreted in the urine
