Garcinia cambogia complex:
Garcinia Cambogia is a tropical fruit native to South & South-East Asia including Indonesia, Sri Lanka and India. Shaped like a small, green pumpkin, the fruit has a sour taste that is most commonly used as a cooking ingredient in curries and soups. As well as this, Garcinia Cambogia has become widely used in powdered form as a weight-loss supplement in pills, teas and lotions since the 1960s.
The main benefits of Garcinia Cambogia include better appetite control, fat burning and potential weight loss through cholestrol reduction and the maintenance of blood sugar levels. This is largely put down to the presence of its active ingredient, Hydroxycitric acid (HCA). Research has shown that HCA can help to metabolise fats through inhibiting a particular enzyme in the body that 'blocks' the formation of the product, which in theory leads to a loss of fat over time.
Furthermore, studies have also shown HCA act as an appetite suppressant through increasing the levels of the chemical serotonin within the brain. In doing so, this could enhance feelings of positivity, curb cravings and lead to a reduction in stress-related snacking.
A combination herbal formula with garcinia cambogia powder, glucomannan powder, green coffee extract (20:1), kidney bean extract (4:1), Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA), cinnamon extract (30:1) and chromium picolinate - all in one easy-to-take capsule.
Take one capsule two to four times per day or as advised. To be taken 30 minutes before meals.
These capsules should be taken as part of a calorie-controlled diet designed to help reduce weight healthily.
Theories show that when combining the intake of Garcinia Cambogia with the ketogenic diet, the weight-loss effect is assumed more effective.
When on ketosis, the body uses fat as fuel instead of carbohydrates and therefore the body is able to burn more and lose more weight in the process. Through supplementing this with Garcinia Cambogia, which blocks fat formation, the body is forced to use the stored fat as additional fuel which can exaggerate the effect of ketosis.
Many believe combining this supplement with Apple Cider Vinegar will lead to improved weight-loss results due to their similar attributes. Apple Cider Vinegar contains acetic acid which helps to lower blood sugar levels, suppress appetite and improve metabolism. The theory is therefore that the two are able to compliment each other and prove more effective.
