Ideal Supplement for Dieters

Updated on July 22, 2014

Garcinia Cambogia is a fruit extract that has its origin in South East Asia. It found very extensive use in India as an ayurvedic medicine, where its use has been known for centuries. In this form of medicine all treatments revolve around the use of natural products and rarely if ever have any side effects. The product is used to reduce liquid build up within the fat cells in a human body.

How Does It Work?

Garcinia Cambogia acts to lessen lipid quantities in the human body. This hormone adjusts food craving and acts to signal the brain when a body is feeling full. Higher lipid concentrations lead to a system giving signals of being hungry, and thus adding to the need for food. When the lipid levels are lowered the body instead gets a feeling of being full and this reduces the need for eating. Most extracts of this material are in the form of capsules, tinctures or as herbal tea. The fruit itself is very bitter and is used as flavoring in food in India. The extract forms a calcium salt of HCA or hydroxyl citric acid. The extract is made from the rind of tamarind and is high in anti-oxidants. This gives it the additional properties of acting as a suppressant for the appetite and ability to burn fat. This property of suppressing the need to eat and using the fat to provide a body with energy makes it an ideal solution for people on a diet, who want to lose weight. It is said that the use of this extract can lead to a loss of ten pounds in a month without any drastic change in the lifestyle.


It Is Safe To Use

Garcinia Cambogia can make for an ideal solution for people looking for a diet to lose weight, as it does not interfere with any other medications or diet products. It does not act like a stimulant, like caffeine does, and will thus not affect behaviour. This makes the use of this extract very safe and ideal for dieters wanting to lose weight. It is easily available in stores that sell health food or nutritional supplements. It is necessary however to be careful to see that the extract that is bought is the right one that will produce the effects that it is known for. Products must be pure and contain at least fifty percent of the active ingredient or HCA. Dosages of these extracts contain 500 mg to 1000mg and must not contain filler ingredients or additives.

Where Is It Contraindicated?

Garcinia Cambogia has never undergone any extensive testing and its use by pregnant women or those who have just delivered is debatable. People suffering from chronic illnesses like Alzheimer, blood pressure or diabetes do take in a lot of medications, and this may interfere with the way this extract works on the body. Most people who need to lose weight are generally also under some form of medication, and it is necessary that they take medical advice before they use this supplement.
