With obesity on the rise, many people who have extra weight on their bodies have been turning to a natural supplement called Garcinia Cambogia. This supplement comes from the Pacific islands––in particular, Indonesia. Native people have been consuming Garcinia Cambogia safely for thousands of years. It wasn’t until recently that it has become mainstream.
If you have heard about Garcinia Cambogia, it is possible that you have been skeptical. “A supplement from a natural fruit that makes you lose weight?” It might sound too good to be true.
To help you understand the reality of the benefits of Garcinia Cambogia, this article will discuss what the reputable Dr. Oz has said about Garcinia Cambogia on his own show and his own website. Dr. Oz has been very positive about Garcinia Cambogia.
Dr. Oz starts off his argument in favor of Garcinia Cambogia by reminding us that it has been eaten safely for hundreds and thousands of years by the native peoples of Indonesia and other South Pacific islands. In addition, he reminds us that in safe amounts (3000 mg or less per day), Hydroxycitric Acid or HCA, the major fat fighting compound found in Garcinia Cambogia is totally safe.
On the Dr. Oz Website, Dr. Oz explains how Garcinia Cambogia works to fight off extra fat on the body. First of all, he says that the fiber in Garcinia Cambogia makes you feel more full. He reminds us that in some tribes in Malaysia, when food is low, Garcinia Cambogia is added to soups to make it more filling. It is also an appetite blocker. Another great thing about this supplement is that it is very cheap. Some supplements can cost tens of hundreds of dollars, but because this one is natural, it is very inexpensive.
Dr. Oz explains that the extract of HCA which is found inside the fruit and in the rind, helps to take away your appetite while at the same time blocking the buildup of fat. In fact, it helps to stop the fat making process all at once. Garcinia Cambogia does this by inhibiting an enzyme called Citrate Lyase. Citrate Lyase is in charge of turning carbs into energy or into fat. The Hydroxycitric Acid in Garcinia Cambogia stops this whole process so that no fat can be stored. It also speeds up the metabolism.
Finally, Garcinia Cambogia adds more serotonin to your brain. As Dr. Oz says, serotonin “makes you feel good,” and when you feel good, you do not experience as much reactive or emotional eating.
