The Health Benefits of Garcinia Cambogia
Last Updated: 05/30/2016

Garcinia Cambogia is the fruit of a plant also known as Garcinia gummi-gutta that mainly grows in India and Southeast Asia, and has been used for centuries in medicine and remedies in these areas.

The skin of the fruit contains a natural substance called Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA), structurally related to citric acid, a sour flavorant) and is the active ingredient which, is believed to help weight control.

The mechanism of action is inhibiting an enzyme called citric acid lysase which is required in the synthesis of fatty acids, known as de novo lipogenesis.

Garcinia Cambogia has proven to be safe and there are no serious side effects for healthy individuals.

Garcinia Cammbogia Pure 80% HCA for weight loss and weight management

Experts recommend that it is best to get a brand with at least 50% Hydroxycitric acid. The Ingenium Naturals Garcinia Cambogia Pure product contains 80% HCA and works in three ways to combat weight loss:

It prevents the conversion of carbohydrates to stored fat.
It improves serotonin levels to stop binge and emotional eating.
It suppresses appetite.

A review published in the Journal of Obesity in 2011 that looked at 12 clinical trials, found that Garcinia Cambogia can increase weight loss by about 0.88 kg, or 2 pounds, on average, over a period of several weeks. Although this may appear, on average to be a small amount of weight, experts have also indicated that slow weight loss is more effective long term (as the weight tends to stay off), compared to quick weight loss, or crash diet methods, where the weight returns quite easily.

In addition to supporting the weight loss process, Garcinia Cambogia Pure 80% can benefit your health in other ways.

Garcinia Cambogia Pure 80% HCA for your mood

Some studies have shown that HCA can boost serotonin levels over a period of time. As low serotonin levels have been linked to depression, adding this supplement to you daily routine may help improve your mood. However, depression is a serious illness, and if you think you may be suffering from depression, contact your healthcare provider and work together to get past it safely and effectively.

Garcinia Cambogia Pure 80% HCA for your blood sugar levels

Because decreased weight can help to reduce one’s blood pressure and sugar levels, it can only be assumed that by losing weight with Garcinia Cambogia can benefit individuals with unbalanced glucose levels. Additionally, because research indicates that Garcinia Cambogia also seems to reduce the rate at which glucose is absorbed into the intestines after eating it. It can help decrease blood-sugar levels, and this effect may be an indication that this particular supplement may improve glucose metabolism, which is often a goal that is associated with patients who have unbalanced sugar levels and are attempting to get their levels under control.

WARNING: If you are diabetic and take insulin or other medication for your condition, be careful about taking Garcinia cambogia because it could result in blood-sugar levels that fall too low. Always consult a doctor before trying a new supplement, especially if you have a health condition or take medication.

Garcinia Cambogia Pure 80% HCA for healthy cholesterol levels

Cholesterol is an important part of your cellular makeup, but it will have toxic effects on your body as it accumulates in the cell membrane.

The flavonoids contained in the fruit slow down the creation of new fat. They achieve this by reducing the activities of enzymes like isocitrate dehydrogenase and G6PD which are responsible for fat creation. This reduces bad cholesterol which in turn increases levels of bile acids and neutral sterols. These help induce the excretion of fat from the body.

HCA also helps in lowering cholesterol levels. When it inhibits citrate lysase thus stopping the fat-making process, there is a decrease in the levels of bad cholesterol and triglycerides.

Several research findings also indicate that Garcinia Cambogia does reduce bad cholesterol.

A small study was conducted on 58 obese people and published in “Phytotherapy Research” in 2008. One group took a placebo and the other took a combination of glucomannan and Garcinia Cambogia for a period of 12 weeks. At the end of the study, the group that had taken the combination was found to have greatly reduced cholesterol levels.

Another 8-week study carried out by Georgetown University showed that HCA supplementation reduced bad cholesterol levels by 12.9% and triglycerides by 6.9%.

In light of these research findings, we can conclude that this fruit cuts down the bad cholesterol. As the Ingenium Naturals Garcinia Cambogia contains 80% HCA and is 100% pure, it is safe to assume it can be a helpful option in supporting healthier overall cholesterol levels.
