Garcinia cambogia is a rich source of hydroxycitric acid (HCA), a compound shown to inhibit citrate lyase, an enzyme responsible for the conversion of carbohydrates into fat. HCA helps prevent new body fat formation and inhibits the synthesis of fatty acids, cholesterol, and triglycerides.
Studies have found that Garcinia cambogia helps with weight reduction by promoting a feeling of fullness, which helps reduce caloric intake. This ability to increase satiety may result from an increase in serotonin levels. Low levels of serotonin affect appetite control and eating behaviour. This natural extract has also been shown to support blood glucose and blood lipid management.
Natural Factors Garcinia Cambogia, standardized to contain 60% HCA, is suitable for vegetarians and vegans, and offers effective, stimulant-free support for weight management in combination with a healthy diet and regular exercise.
The ability of Garcinia cambogia to help curb food cravings and assist with appetite control appears to be related in part to HCA increasing the levels of serotonin, a neurotransmitter involved in appetite regulation and emotional well-being. Low serotonin levels are thought to be a key trigger for food cravings.
HCA improves the synthesis of glycogen in the muscles, which helps enhance stamina and muscle recovery. It also appears to significantly improve fatty acid synthesis and insulin sensitivity after meals, with benefits for liver health and blood glucose regulation.
HCA has also been seen to lower low-density lipoprotein (LDL cholesterol), total cholesterol, triglycerides, and serum leptin levels, offering support for blood glucose and blood lipid management. Garcinia cambogia may also have anti-inflammatory activity as it contains garcinol and other compounds shown to inhibit the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines (signalling proteins).
