Before showing you how Garcinia Cambogia works, let's look at what the benefits are and what's in it first.
Garcinia Cambogia has been shown through clinical studies to benefit the body in the following ways:
Blocks and Burns Fat
Boosts Immune System
Increases Serotonin Levels
Not all Garcinia Cambogia formulas are created equal. Natural Herb Labs Garcinia Cambogia has other essential ingredients necessary to make Garcinia Cambogia an effective weight loss supplement with zero binders and fillers.
When looking for Garcinia Cambogia you should ensure it is from the fruit rind and has the following ingredients:
Potassium is essential for maintaining proper nervous system transmissions throughout the body. Often when dieting, potassium levels decrease. Including potassium helps maintain a good balance in your system.
Calcium improves weight loss by burning excess fat while reducing the amount of fat stored in your body. Calcium also strengthens bones and helps in the prevention of osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease.
Chromium is essential for energy and maintaining stable blood sugar levels. If your body has a chromium deficiency you can suffer from anxiety, fatigue, glucose intolerance, inadequate metabolism of amino acids, and an increased risk of arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries).
Chromium is also good for lowering bad cholesterol while rasing good cholesterol
Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA) is found in the fruit rind of Garcinia Cambogia. HCA has been shown to block fat that is normally produced by sugars and carbohydrates. Your body then turns to burning stored fat which results in weight loss.
Clinical studies have shown that Garcinia Cambogia with 60% HCA (Hydroxycitric Acid), a citric acid byproduct (the main active ingredient in Garcinia Cambogia) blocks fat by inhibiting the efforts of citrate lyase, an important metabolic enzyme. By blocking this enzyme your body turns to burning stored fat thus losing weight.
Under normal conditions, citrate lyase converts excess sugars and carbohydrates into fatty acids, cholesterol and triglycerides. What the body cannot use for energy it stores as fat. The vast majority of people end up storing this fat in the waist, hips, thighs and butt.
By interrupting the metabolic process, hydroxycitric acid (HCA) slows the conversion of carbohydrates into fats, thus "blocking fat". This is one of the primary reasons Garcinia Cambogia is so effective.
Garcinia Cambogia with 60% HCA has been shown to increase serotonin levels in the brain. Serotonin is a chemical that acts as a neurotransmitter responsible for a number of regulatory processes that affect appetite and mood.
Elevated levels of serotonin have been shown to promote weight loss by curbing your appetite and sugar cravings. If you're not hungry, you don't binge eat in turn taking in less calories for your body to burn before it starts burning stored fat deposits.
Just as HCA blocks fat production and storage by inhibiting the citrate lyase enzyme from transforming sugars and carbs into fats , it also reduces the amount of lipids in the blood stream. Lowering the amount of lipids in turn lowers the production of bad cholesterol and increases the production of good cholesterol.
Not only has Garcinia Cambogia been shown to lower cholesterol, it also has the positive effect of lowering blood pressure. Both cholesterol and blood pressure impact mood, heart health and quality of life.
Garcinia Cambogia has been shown to improve the immune system. Studies indicate that the high concentration levels of Vitamin C found in Garcinia Cambogia can improve the body’s response to infections, illness and disease. The herbal supplement may also shorten the duration of sickness such as the flu and common cold.
The metabolic process in your body is actually a sequence of chemical reactions that keep your body in a constant state of imbalance. Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA) helps to balance these reactions and make the process more efficient.
By creating this balance your body uses more energy than it takes in. The additional energy required for your body to operate is then created by burning stored fat.
Garcinia Cambogia with 60% HCA levels and greater have been shown to be more efficient according to clinical studies.
