So, Pure Garcinia Cambogia Extract, what is the big fuss all about? A popular Doctor with a television show gives one good review of a product and people just go nuts. How legit is this product and can it really live up to being the “miracle” or “holy grail” it claims to be?
First of all, what is this stuff?
Garcina itself is small, greenish in color and looks something like a gourd or pumpkin from the outside. It typically comes from warm, wet regions across the globe such as India, Central Africa, Karnataka/Kerala and Southeast Asia. The rind of this plant contains a very special, all natural chemical called hydroxycitric acid.
What is Hydroxycitric Acid?
Hydroxycitric Acid is most commonly referred to HCA and if you are doing your homework and researching Garcinia Cambogia Extracts then you are going to see those three letters pop up all over the place.
HCA is the key to any weight loss that Garcinia Cambogia can provide. The way that it works is that the hydroxycitric acid blocks and enzyme in your system causing your body to have to turn carbohydrates into fat cells. That doesn’t sound very helpful does it? Why would you want to add more fat cells to your body?
The reason that this method is able to specifically target getting rid of stubborn tummy fat is that by switching carbs to fats they are now easier to burn off. It can take days or even up to a week to burn of certain carbs but as long as you are mildly active on a daily basis burning off fat is no problem for most people.
So is it really a Holy Grail of weight loss?
It can be if you are smart with it. No pill can just magically make you lose weight and not end up killing you or hurting you down the road. Pure Garcinia Cambogia extracts have an appetite suppressant ability that can greatly help you to get off of unhealthy foods and give you energy to be more active.
