Garcinia Cambogia has gained a lot of attention as an excellent weight management tool and dietary aid. This tropical fruit found growing naturally in the forests of Asia has been the object of numerous studies and scientists have isolated the active ingredient found in Garcinia. Hydroxycitric acid or HCA, is the active ingredient found in Garcinia Cambogia.
HCA may help to improve the liver's ability to create energy and to metabolize fat. This means that HCA may help to prevent the excess conversion of glucose into fat to be stored in the body. HCA has also been found to play a role in regulating appetite. Unlike many other dietary aids, Garcinia cambogia is not a nervous system stimulant but offers other properties to help support optimal weight management.
