Weight control is a constant and frustrating struggle for many people. They try every new technique and fad, give up their favorite foods and spend countless hours sweating at the gym, often with disappointing results. According to whatworks.org there is a new product on the market, Garcinia Cambogia, that is showing promise for improving the effectiveness of your weight loss efforts.
Millions of people first learned about this supplement when Dr. Oz, one of the most prominent health gurus in the world, introduced it on his television show. Garcinia Cambogia is a natural extract from a small Southeast Asian fruit called the Tamarind, which resembles a small green pumpkin and is a common ingredient in Asian cooking. The active ingredient in the extract is a compound called hydroxycitric acid (HCA). Studies have shown that HCA suppresses citrate lyase, an enzyme that your body requires for converting sugar and carbohydrates into fat. Without citrate lyase, the body’s ability to produce fat, triglycerides, and bad cholesterol (LDL) is impaired. HCA also inhibits the liver’s ability to store what little fat the body does produce, which leads to greater weight loss.
Studies have also shown that the extract can lead to increased levels of serotonin, which is a neurotransmitter that reduces stress and may help suppress your appetite and eliminate emotional eating. All these actions, combined with a moderate exercise program, can double or even triple your weight loss. It’s important to note that for the greatest effect, the supplement should contain at least 50 percent HCA.
Most commercial preparations of Garcinia Cambogia recommend that for optimal weight loss results, you should take 500 mg of the supplement, three times a day, 30 minutes before meals. A more conservative approach is to start with 500 mg twice a day, and assess your weight loss in 2 to 3 weeks. You can then increase or decrease the dosage according to your weight loss goals. Although side effects are rare, users may experience mild digestive problems, so it’s a good idea not to ingest more than 3000 mg per day.
If you’re tired of coming up short in the diet game, up your advantage with this new and natural supplement. Not only will you be turning that fat belly into a flat belly, you’ll soon be turning heads at the beach as well.
