Garcinia cambogia is an Asian fruit that contains naturally high amounts of (-)-hydroxycitiric acid (HCA). For people trying to lose weight, HCA is the compound that has been found by researchers to help curb the urge to snack and to inhibit fat production.
DietWorks Garcinia Cambogia is formulated using a form of garcinia cambogia called Super CitriMax® -- a patented version of this ingredient that has been scientifically validated for both efficacy and activity in ten different studies.
HCA suppresses appetite by increasing serotonin, a neurotransmitter in your brain that makes you feel good. Low levels of serotonin cause emotional or reactive eating in many people. By increasing serotonin levels, HCA improves mood, which suppresses the emotional need to eat. An added benefit to this process occurs as you eat less, your body must burn energy by releasing stored fat in your fat cells.
HCA blocks fat production by inhibiting citrate lyase, an enzyme used to turn carbohydrates into fat. By inhibiting citrate lyase, HCA helps to halt the fat-making process, which also results in a decrease in the production of LDL (bad cholesterol) and triglycerides.
