Recently there has been much media exposure on Garcinia Cambogia presenting it as a new fruit with amazing weight loss properties. Its claimed abilities are accurate but it is not new. Many companies have been using it for years. I personally have been using it in several of my weight management products, with great success, for over 20 years. My many clients have attested to this over this period of time. With this long history of use we have been able to show that it is very effective and safe to use.*
Garcinia Cambogia has been surprisingly well-researched with a dozen different clinical trials carried out over the years. Time and time again, the research reveals the power Garcinia Cambogia extract has for fat loss, the creation of healthy eating habits and the increase of lean muscle mass. This is great; because the more muscle you have, the more calories your body will burn. This extract also helps decrease cholesterol and might also help improve insulin resistance.*
Garcinia Cambogia is a small, pumpkin-shabed fruit, sometimes called tamarind. The ingredient from the rind of the fruit could hasten your weight-loss efforts. The natural extract is called hydroxycitric acid (HCA), and researchers claim that HCA can aid one's weight loss.*
How It Works
The HCA extract from Garcinia Cambogia aids in weight loss by doing these things: It helps to block fats and sugar, suppress your appetite and prevent or decrease the formation of fat cells within the body.*
HCA blocks fat by inhibiting a key enzyme that your body needs to make fat from carbohydrates: Citrate lyase. Usually carbohydrates or sugars that are not used immediately or stores in other forms are converted into fats. When HCA inhibits citrate lyase, the fat-making process is halted and the production of LDL (bad cholesterol) and triglycerides decrease.*
HCA also suppresses appetite by increasing serotonin levels. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter in your brain that makes you feel good. It's a target of many antidepressant medications. Having low levels of serotonin may make you feel depressed or anxious; it drives many people into emotional or reactive eating. By increasing serotonin levels, HCA improves mood and suppresses the drive to react to stressful situations with food. As you eat less, your body senses this and it releases stored fat in your fat cells. HCA is also known for keeping the stress hormone Cortisol tightly under control.*
Garcinia Cambogia extract has been shown to serve these primary functions:
- It prevents formation of fat cells that result from the liver converting sugar into fat.
- It increases serotonin levels, improving mood and making it easier for people to control their eating habits and urges to binge.
- It helps remove bad cholesterol from the blood stream.
- It contains flavonoids that reduce triglycerides, phospholipids, and free fatty acids.
- Build lean muscle mass.
- Controls Cortisol.
- May help improve insulin resistance.
It is an herb native to the tropical forests of India. Gymnema Sylvestre has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for over two millennia to balance blood sugar levels, curb appetite, reduce cravings for sweets, support weight management, gastrointestinal problems, water retention, liver problems.*
Experimental research has shown that active ingredients isolated form the leaves of this herb can block sugar receptors in the tongue of laboratory animals, which could explain the herb's ability to suppress the sensation of sweet upon chewing.*
References to marshmallow root as a healing herb are found in Homer's Iliad, written over 2,800 years ago. The use of the herb spread from Greece to Arabia and India, where it became an important herb in the Ayurvedic and Unani healing traditions. It is a very safe and soothing herb used to moisten and lubricate tissues both internally and externally and the root is traditionally used to support a healthy digestive system.*
Although typically psyllium hull (husk) is thought of as colon cleansing or regularity supplement it can be very useful as a weight loss tool. Psyllium hull is highly effective when taken about 30-60 minutes before meals. This way, the hulls will have time to expand in your stomach and give you a "full" feeling. This will help you eat smaller meals and thus lose unwanted pounds.*
As a dietary supplement, take two (2) capsules 3 times daily (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) with an 8 oz glass of water, or as directed by your health care provider.
