Garcinia Cambogia

Garcinia Cambogia is a relative new-comer to the ranks of Western herbalism, but was apparently used for thousands of years in China as a food supplement. It is used as an appetite suppressant and to inhibit the absorption and synthesis of fat, cholesterol and triglycerides. In other words, it is a dietary aid. It is a brown hygroscopic powder.

The organic acid known as (-)HCA is the primary acid found in the fruit and rind of G. cambogia. The fruit rind and extracts of G. cambogia are used in many traditional recipes. HCA inhibits lipogenesis, lowers the production of cholesterol and fatty acids, increases the production of glycogen in the liver, suppresses appetite, increases the body's production of heat by activating the process of thermogenesis. Said to activate digestion and are used as purgatives, in the treatment of worms and parasites, tumours and dysentery. Neither acute nor chronic toxicity is reported with regular consumption of Garcinia products as either food or tonics.

Garcinia Cambogia works by suppressing appetite and inhibiting lipid synthesis.This latter mechanism is based on the theory that inhibition of lipid biosynthesis or enhance lipid metabolism interfere with mechanisms that produce and maintain obesity.

Specifically, HCA prevents the enzyme from catalyzing the cleavage of citrate to acetyl coenzyme A and oxaloacetate. This inhibition significantly reduces the synthesis of triglycerides, cholesterol and body fat, without diminishing energy production. The result is significant loss of body weight in animals made obese genetically and by hypothalamic lesions.

Animal studies demonstrate that fatty acid and cholesterol synthesis in liver are significantly inhibited after oral administration of HCA. Garcinia Cambogia is Used as 1 of the 21 Active Ingredients in Thermadrol
