Garcinia Cambogia and Your Metabolism Posted on March 01, 2016 by , 0 comments
Every year at least one or two new miracle weight loss supplements take the market by storm. There’s a lot of buzz in the beginning, usually accompanied by segments about it on television and before you know it the new ingredient will be available everywhere you look. But all too quickly the buzz fades and people begin looking for the next big thing. The reason for this is simple: no single ingredient supplements work. In order to reach and maintain healthy weight management goals you have to support your appetite, mood, and metabolism, and that is going to take much more than just a single ingredient.
Body Regime understands this. Each ingredient in the formula has been selected not just for how the ingredient functions on it’s own, but how it functions when used in the formula. In this blog series we will explore the history, application, and source for each ingredient used in Body Regime. First up: Garcinia cambogia.
The Source and History:
Garcinia cambogia (Garcinia gummi-gutta) is a tropical fruit also known as the Malabar tamarind and is native to Indonesia. The fruit resembles a small, green pumpkin about the size of a baseball. The sour taste of the fruit makes it ideal of adding sour notes to curry dishes. It is a popular cooking ingredient in Southeast Asian countries such as Thailand, Burma, and Malaysia.
While Garcinia cambogia has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries, Western culture became familiar with Garcinia cambogia extract in 2012 after popular daytime television programs backed it. The newfound popularity of the product spurred additional studies and research into how the fruit could be used to help support weight loss goals.
The rind of Garcinia cambogia contains a chemical called hydroxycitric acid, or HCA. The isolated HCA interacts with an enzyme called citrate lyase, which the body uses to create fat. HCA also interacts with insulin levels, which may help support healthy blood sugar levels. In addition, HCA may help support healthy serotonin levels in the brain as well as healthy cholesterol levels already within the normal range.*
Garcinia cambogia is included in the Body Regime blend to help support blood glucose levels, which may in turn help support metabolism. When used alongside the other ingredients found in Body Regime, it may also help support mood and appetite.*Body Regime™ is an intelligent blend. Learn more and try it today!
