Garcinia Cambogia

Garcinia cambogiais a small fruit that resembles a miniature pumpkin. The extract is hydroxycitric acid (HCA) and is claimed to suppress appetite and enhance fat-burning.

HCA inhibits an enzyme called citrate lyase that helps turns excess carbohydrates into fat. By inhibiting this enzyme, it is believed the body boosts carbohydrate oxidation. In animal studies, garcinia cambogia was found to reduce food intake by suppressing appetite, as well as to decrease fat.

The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) published a study that used a daily dose of 1500mg of HCA over a 12-week period on healthy, overweight adults. At the end of the study, the group receiving garcinia cambogia did not see statistically different weight loss from the control group.

Garcinia cambogia reportedly does not have any known adverse effects. It should be avoided by children, pregnant and lactating women, those diagnosed with diabetes mellitus, and people with Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia disease. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not regulate garcinia cambogia.
