As always, we like to keep our readers up to date on many of the newest and healthiest ways to stay in shape, lose weight, build muscle and live a life that sees you living well into your later years, in a safe and healthy fashion.
One of the newest weight loss aids to hit the health and wellness scene is that of Garcina Cambogia. Taken mostly as a supplement, it is a dual action supplement that not only helps prevent fat from being stored, but it also suppresses appetite so you don’t have food cravings throughout the day. This is all done without having to cut calories from your diet, and without any special food restrictions to adhere to.
Garcinia Cambogia is a small, pumpkin-shaped fruit found in Indonesia, India, Southeast Asia, and Central Africa. The active weight loss ingredient is called hydroxycitric acid (HCA). This is found in the rind of the fruit and researchers claim that HCA can double or triple one’s weight loss. With proper exercise and dieting, the average weight loss for someone on a regular regimen of Garcina Cambogia is around four pounds a month.
HCA blocks fat by inhibiting the key enzyme that your body needs to make fat from carbohydrates called Citrate lyase. When carbohydrates or sugars aren’t immediately used or stored in other forms in the body, they are converted into fats. When HCA inhibits citrate lyase, the fat-making process is put on hold and the production of LDL cholesterol and triglycerides decrease.
HCA also suppresses appetite by increasing serotonin levels. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter in the brain that is responsible for making us feel happy and good. Low levels of serotonin may make you feel depressed or anxious; and is the reason that many people tend to emotionally eat. By increasing serotonin levels, HCA improves mood and suppresses the drive to react to stressful situations with food. As you eat less, due to this, the body senses this and releases stored fat from the body.
Recommended dosage for the supplement is about 500-1000 mg before each meal, and no more than 3000 mg total per day.
