One of the Most Popular Weight Loss Health Supplements in the Market

Weight loss is a big, big industry and its turnover today is in billions of dollars. It is really surprising that in a time when people are so health conscious and take to exercising and dieting to stay lean and fit, more than half of the population suffer from obesity and overweight.

Men and women have a strong desire to get back into shape and they try different ways to somehow shed excess body fat. It is this strong desire to look and feel confident and attractive to others that has given rise to health supplements. If one takes a look at these health supplements being sold in the market, one will find that most of them try to burn fat for those who are either obese or consider themselves overweight.

HCA is the Ingredient Behind Garcinia Cambogia’s Weight Loss Effect

Coming back to Garcinia Cambogia, it would be better to term it as a miracle weight loss health supplement that works silently as the individual continue with his merry ways in daily life. The chemical or the main ingredient contained in all Garcinia Cambogia pills and extracts being sold in the market is called HCA or Hydroxycitric acid. HCA has built up a reputation for itself as a chemical that leads to weight loss in rodents. There have been many studies to prove the efficacy of this chemical in rats.

Garcinia Cambogia Prevents Conversion of Starch and Sugar into Fat

HCA, the main ingredient in Garcinia Cambogia, is not only appetite suppressant, it also causes weight loss. This weight loss is not direct but indirect as HCA blocks an enzyme called citrate lyase. This particular enzyme is believed by many scientists as the main culprit behind the obesity of most overweight men and women around the country. Citrate Lyase facilitates the conversion of starches and sugars into fat that later gets deposited into various parts of the body like hips, thighs, waist, arms, and legs.

Once this enzyme is blocked effectively, the carbohydrates consumed by an individual continue to work for production of energy rather than getting deposited in the form of fat inside the body. People who use Garcinia Cambogia find it much easier to lose weight than people who try other ways of shedding their body weight. This is because people who are not on this health supplement have citrate lyase working efficiently. They work hard inside a gym to burn their fat but carbohydrates eaten by them easily convert into fat to replace the burnt fat.

The appetite suppressing property of HCA inside Garcinia Cambogia works to send signals to the brain that the stomach is full and there is no need to binge or go for those in between the meal snacks.

Side Effects of Garcinia Cambogia

Despite its health benefits, and help in weight loss, some people have also reported some side effects of this health supplement. Side effects of Garcinia Cambogia includes an upset stomach and even diarrhea in some cases. However, most of these side effects vanish after using this health supplement for a few days. In the case of a few individuals, Garcinia Cambogia interfered with the working of the medications they were already taking. This is the reason why it makes sense to consult a doctor before starting on Garcinia Cambogia. If you have decided to start on this miracle weight loss health supplement, make sure you buy the extract from a reputed source. This way you are sure that you are consuming Garcinia Cambogia that is pure and does not contain fillers.
