The Whole Truth About Garcinia Cambogia And The Research Behind What It Does To Your Body

2008_07040004

I heard about this new weight loss fad or craze or whatever you want to call it called Garcinia Cambogia. Apparently, Garcinia Cambogia is one of the hottest new weight loss supplements because there were a couple of recent medical studies that showed how effective it was for  weight loss. Dr. Oz even featured the supplement on his show and praised it for its ability to prevent fat absorption and enable weight loss without the need for additional exercise or dietary changes.

Garcinia Cambogia is also known as the Malabar tamarind and is a pumpkin-like fruit grown in southeast Asia. It has been used in eastern cultures for centuries as an appetite suppressant and weight loss aid, but only in the past year or so has it received a lot of notice in Europe and the U.S..

What is the truth behind Garcinia Cambogia, though? Is it truly effective for weight loss? Does Garcinia Cambogia work? I decided to put it to the test. I tried one Garcinia Cambogia product and thought it worked pretty well, but then I heard about another company’s product that was supposed to be more potent and more effective, so I decided to give them a try. I was amazed at how much better it worked than the first product. That was when I decided to start testing a bunch of different companies’ Garcinia Cambogia products so I could find out exactly which Garcina Cambogia product was the best one out there.

The first product I tried was one I found at Walgreen’s. Like I said before, it worked pretty well and I felt like it was keeping me from absorbing too much fat, but I started to do some more research about Garcinia Cambogia on the internet and that’s when I found another product by a company called Whole Body Research. The Whole Body Research Garcinia Cambogia is over 60% concentration of HCA or Hydroxycitric Acid, which is the active weight loss/fat blocking ingredient in Garcinia Cambogia but it also contains potassium which is supposed to help the HCA be better absorbed by the liver.

I used the Walgreen’s Garcinia Cambogia product for a month and I definitely felt like it was working and by the end I felt like I had actually dropped some pounds, but when I started using the Whole Body Research Garcinia Cambogia, I really noticed a difference. Right away, I felt like it was giving me more energy and so my workouts were definitely enhanced. Of course, that also helped my weight loss.

Here’s what I found when I looked into the research behind Garcinia Cambogia and what it actually does to your whole body.

A Study conducted by Kyushu University in Fukuoka, Japan found that Garcinia Cambogia was able to effectively improved glucose metabolism and promoted production of the weight loss hormone leptin.

Another study on Garcinia Cambogia, this one conducted by the University of Kerala, in Kariavattom, Thiruvananthapuram, India found that the flavonoids in Garcinia Cambogia caused lower lipid levels as well as lower cholesterol.

Garcinia Cambogia was also found to cause a significant reduction in food intake, body weight, epididymal fat and serum triglyceride levels in a study by the Central Food Technological Research Institute in Mysore, India.

Garcinia Cambogia has also been shown to have anti-ulcerative properties, meaning it can help with digestion as well.

So it seems that the research surrounding Garcinia Cambogia would indicate that it does in fact help prevent the absorption of fat, reduce appetites, and aid in weight loss.

But what is the best Garcinia Cambogia product out there? Well, Dr. Oz has some recommendations about what to look for when you shop for a Garcinia Cambogia supplement. He suggests you find a supplement that contains at least 60% HCA (hydroxycitric acid) and one that also contains potassium so it can be better absorbed by the body. He also recommends that you find a supplement that uses pure Garcinia Cambogia extract, and not synthetic Garcinia Cambogia

The Whole Body Research Garcinia Cambogia fit all of the requirements and I think the reason why it worked so much better than the rest of the products that I tried is because it contained the added potassium. I think in the other Garcinia Cambogia products my body wasn’t able to absorb the HCA like it was with the Whole Body Research Garcinia Cambogia.

I’m really surprised by how well the Garcinia Cambogia seems to help me control my appetite and fat absorption. I guess that’s probably why it’s been such a talked about weight loss supplement. Because it actually works!

If you have been looking for a Garcinia Cambogia supplement to try to get your metabolism out of fat storage mode and into fat burning mode, the Whole Body Research Garcinia Cambogia is a great supplement that was the most powerful and potent I could find.
