Garcinia Camogia Extract is a fat loss formula extracted from the rind of the gummi-gutta fruit known as Garcinia Cambogia. This fruit wasn’t widely known in the U.S. until Dr Oz endorsed it as the “Holy Grail of Weight Loss” on his show. Since then, there has been a lot said about the extract and its fat loss capabilities.
No matter what you’ve heard, there is always another side to a story. Moreover, many people don’t know how this ‘wonder’ extract can benefit them.
In the midst of tons and tons of information, it’s important to isolate the facts from fiction and hype.
The Important Facts
This is not the first fat loss formula to be touted by Dr Oz, but what makes Garcinia Cambogia special is that it has been under close scrutiny from scientists and it has been subjected to many studies ever since it came to the fore of the fat loss industry.
In one research study, it was observed that the Garcinia Cambogia extract led to reduced body weight and body mass index (BMI) by up to 5.4%. It was also observed that participants had elevated levels of leptin (the hormone that regulates appetite) as well as increased levels of serotonin.
The scientists concluded that this extract can lead to profound weight loss if used alongside a healthy diet and regular exercise.
In addition to these observations, the scientists also discovered that in its purest form, the extract contains high amounts of Hydroxycitric acid (HCA), which is also the main active ingredient and one that blocks fat from being deposited in the body.
Although the study was carried out over a relatively short period of time, several other studies have revealed more or less similar results. So for now, the Garcinia Cambogia formula can be thought of as an effective weight loss formula.
