Native Fruit

Garcinia Cambogia is a plant most native to India, Africa, and Southeast Asia. It is a fruit that is typically used for cooking and sometimes referred to as a “super fruit” because of its benefits to weight loss. This fruit is most sought after as a supplement for weight loss, and research has been ongoing since the early 60s as to its effectiveness.

1. Controlling Appetite

Because of its sour and bitter taste, it is reported that Garcinia Cambogia can promote appetite control. Typically, if we eat something sour and bitter before consuming our meal, we will likely have a greatly reduced appetite and become fuller sooner than normal. In addition, it is believed that this fruit also helps to boost serotonin levels, which also helps with appetite control.

2. Reduced Diabetes Risk

Since Garcinia Cambogia is known as a weight loss supplement, it is helpful in reducing the risk of developing diabetes. Garcinia Cambogia has anti-inflammatory properties as well as improving the regulation of your blood sugar. These two effects combine to create a lessened risk of the development of type 2 diabetes.

Weight Loss Pill
