  • Scientific Background

    Garcinia Cambogia is a small fruit resembling a miniature pumpkin. Indigenous to India and other parts of Asia, the extract from its fruit and rind is popular in many natural weight loss products. The extract is hydroxycitric acid (HCA), claimed to suppress appetite and enhance fat-burning.

    HCA from Garcinia Cambogia inhibits an enzyme called citrate lyase that helps turns excess carbohydrates into fat. By inhibiting this enzyme, it is believed the body boosts carbohydrate oxidation instead, or simply put, burns the extra carbohydrates. When citrate lyase is inhibited, the fat-making process is halted and the production of LDL (bad cholesterol) and triglycerides decreases. Animal studies have shown that Garcinia Cambogia reduces food intake by suppressing appetite, and decreases body fat. While certain double-blind studies using Garcinia Cambogia and a placebo showed the HCA group as doubling or tripling weight loss over a 12-week period as compared to the control group, some other studies were less promising.

    HCA extract can aid in weight loss in two ways: by helping to block fat, and by suppressing your appetite. HCA also suppresses appetite by increasing serotonin levels. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter in your brain that makes you feel good. It’s the target of many antidepressant drugs. Low serotonin levels in the brain may cause you to feel depressed or anxious, which drives many people into emotional or reactive eating. By increasing serotonin levels, HCA may improve mood and suppresses the drive to react to stressful situations by eating. When your body senses you eating less, it releases stored fat in your fat cells.

    Those taking a statin (a cholesterol-lowering drug) should use this supplement with caution because it can increase the risk of harmful side effects, like rhabdomyolysis or muscle degradation. Those with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia shouldn’t take HCA because of the risk of worsening their condition.
