Garcinia Cambogia For Weight Loss: Does It Work?

by Jackie on June 14, 2017

Garcinia cambogia is a popular ingredient in natural weight loss products. It is a tropical fruit that has its origins in Asia and in Africa and is also known as Malabar tamarind, red mango and brindal berry. The rind contains HCA or hydroxycitric acid, which is the active ingredient in Garcinia cambogia products.
HCA is believed to stimulate the body’s fat burning process and to reduce appetite. It works by blocking an enzyme called citrate lyase that is involved in producing fat for the body’s fat storage. HCA may also help to keep cholesterol and blood sugar levels within healthy limits.
Does it work? It is important to buy quality products that contain enough active ingredients. The recommended daily dose is usually measured as the amount of HCA in the supplement and it varies from 900 mg to 1500 mg a day. Some products contain less HCA than others so make sure to buy reputable products. Garcinia cambogia is available in capsules, as powder and as liquid, and it is also added to many herbal weight loss products together with other ingredients.

I'm a fitness nut. I know what you're thinking, one of these people who has never been fat a day in her life, and can eat whatever she wants. The truth is I struggled with my weight growing up and lived in a household where everything seemed to be fried. Once I got away from home I realized I had the choice to eat and exercise how I wanted. I've gained a lot of insight into working as a personal trainer, and feel I can relate to others that were in my situation. I think if I can do it then you can to, and if you want to start kicking butt then hop on board and lets get started.
