Garcinia Cambogia is a fruit with the shape of a pumpkin, native to Central and West Africa, Indonesia, India and Southeast Asia. It contains the chemical hydroxycitric acid (HCA blocks body fat by preventing the function of enzyme called citrate lyase.
Normally, this enzyme transforms excess sugars into body fat, triglycerides and cholesterol. Garcinia Cambogia’s main weigh loss benefit is to prevent this enzyme by interrupting the metabolic function and reduce the conversion of fats.
Besides being a highly effective fat blocker, HCA can suppress appetite and balance out irregular eating habits. This is done by boosting serotonin levels in the body. Serotonin is a brain chemical that affects appetite and mood to some extent.
