Garcinia Cambogia: The Fruit that Helps with Weight Loss*
Garcinia cambogia is a small, yellow fruit native to Southeast Asia. For centuries, this fruit has been used by traditional herbalists for its wide range of health benefits. Recently, scientific studies have focused on the fruit's primary bioactive constituent, Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA), and its effects on citrate lyase - the main enzyme responsible for cellular synthesis of fatty acids. These studies have shown that HCA may help to support weight loss by discouraging the body's production of fat.* NOW® Garcinia is standardized to 50% HCA and each tablet is guaranteed to provide 500 mg of HCA.
How Does Garcinia Cambogia Work?
When carbohydrates are converted into energy, they are first converted into glucose - which is then turned into glycogen and stored in the liver and muscles for later use. Glycogen can also be converted back into glucose and used for energy between meals. However, when there are more carbohydrates than can be immediately used or stored, the body will convert these excess carbs into triglycerides - which are then stored as body fat.*
The body's natural process of converting carbs into triglycerides requires an enzyme called citrate lyase. Hydroxycitric acid (HCA) found in garcinia cambogia inhibits citrate lyase, making it more difficult for the body to produce triglycerides from carbs.* Therefore, HCA may help to discourage storage of excess calories as body fat.*
In addition, HCA may also help to support healthy serotonin levels. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that plays an important role in mood and appetite control.* By supporting healthy serotonin levels, HCA may help to promote feelings of well-being.*
