Everybody’s talking about it, but does garcinia cambogia actually help you manage weight? Well, there’s been many studies on this small pumpkin-like fruit from South East Asia, and there’s definitely something to it.
Garcinia’s active ingredient is hydroxycitric acid, or HCA for short. It’s basically a derivative of citric acid and is found in lots of tropical plants including garcinia cambogia. What makes it so beneficial for weight management is how it works.
1) Garcinia cambogia may support the management of belly fat
HCA supports low levels of an enzyme called ATP citrate lyase which allows sugars to be converted into fats for storage. Low levels of ATP support weight management and help manage healthy fat storage.
2) It may help reduce feelings of hunger
Studies show those given garcinia cambogia tend to eat less. That’s because garcinia supports healthy levels of serotonin in your brain, the ‘feel good’ neurotransmitter that promotes feelings of satisfaction and importantly helps manage satiety or a feeling of ‘fullness’.
Other benefits of garcinia cambogia
- May support healthy blood sugar balance, as it supports healthy Insulin and leptin levels
- May benefit your digestive system by protecting against damage to the inner lining of your digestive tract, while supporting regular bowel movements.
