Garcinia Cambogia is a fruit that grows in India, Southeast Asia and Central Africa. It has been used for centuries for its weight loss and appetite suppressing abilities.
Garcinia Cambogia contains a key ingredient, HCA (hydroxycitric acid) which is extracted from the fruit. This is truely natures answer to weight loss!
The HCA extract from garcinia cambogia supplement aids in weight loss by doing two things: It helps to block fat, and it suppresses your appetite.
HCA blocks fat by inhibiting a key enzyme that your body needs to make fat from carbohydrates: Citrate lyase. Usually carbohydrates or sugars that are not used immediately or stored in other forms are converted into fats. When HCA inhibits citrate lyase, the fat-making process is halted and the production of LDL (bad cholesterol) and triglycerides decreases.
Garcinia Pure works in two ways, by blocking the fat creation process in the body and suppressing your appetite. Typically, your body takes excess sugar and carbohydrates and converts them to fat. The active ingredient, HCA, in Garcinia works by blocking the enzyme responsible for this process.
What makes Garcinia truly fantastic, is it not only stops fat creation, it suppresses appetite as well. Ancient cultures have been cooking with Garcinia for centuries so their meals make them feel full and satisfied. Garcinia Pure will do the same for you, taking it before meals will help you feel full sooner and accelerate your weight loss.
How does HCA work? Our bodies convert the calories we eat into energy. During and after meals, calories that are not immediately used for energy are stored in the body in the liver and muscles as glycogen, which is a ready source of energy for the body.
When glycogen stores become filled, monitors in the liver send satiety signals to the brain indicating we are full. This is one of the primary ways the appetite is reduced during a meal. However, when we take in too many calories and glycogen stores are filled, the leftover amount is converted through several steps into cholesterol or into fatty acids, which are stored throughout the body.
The conversion of carbohydrates into fat requires an enzyme called ATP-citrate lyase. HCA works by temporarily inhibiting this enzyme, which essentially means it blocks the fat production. Prevention of converting excess calories into fat in turn slows the production of LDL cholesterol and triglycerides.
At the same time, the liver is able to synthesize more glycogen, amplifying the satiety signal to the brain and suppressing appetite and food cravings. The increased production of glycogen in the liver can also lead to greater and more sustained energy for those with glycogen storage problems.
