Dried fruit rinds have been used extensively for centuries throughout Southeast Asia for culinary purposes as a condiment and flavoring agent in place of tamarind or lemon. Additional culinary uses include the flavoring of curries, meat, and seafood. The fruit extract has been used as a flavoring agent for beverages and gourmet spices, as well as a carminative, thereby helping to prevent the formation of gas in the GI tract after a meal. HCA and other organic acids from the dried rind combined with salt help lower pH and provide a bacteriostatic effect used in curing fish. The herb is considered beneficial for overall health in the traditional Ayurvedic medical system.
Rheumatism and bowel complaints are treated with a decoction of the fruit rind. A rinse is used from the herbal extract in veterinary medicine for some diseases of the mouth in cattle. HCA has also become popular as an ingredient for weight loss.
Aids in Weight Loss
Garcinia Cambogia’s sudden popularity is based on its claim as a highly effective weight loss ingredient. In fact, it is often referred to as the miracle cure in fighting obesity and other weight problems. So how does it control weight gain? Hydroxycitric acids have been proven to prevent the build-up of calories that are stored as fat. Our body naturally produces enzymes that slow down metabolism or the ability to digest food products. When metabolism decreases, the body begins to generate fat deposits from all the calories we consume. As a solution, hydroxycitric acids prevent the production of these enzymes, thus fat deposits are minimized while the calories are converted into glycogen.
Glycogen is essential in building muscles while also improving stamina and energy. The overall effect when regularly taking Garcinia Cambogia is physically and mentally healthier body and mind.
As a testament to this claim, a study was conducted wherein people suffering from weight issues were divided into two groups. Both groups were subjected to the same diet and asked to do the same exercise routines. The only difference is the first group was required to take Garcinia Cambogia Extract, while the other was not. Results showed more efficient weight loss rate experienced by the first group by as much as 40% compared to the other group. The Garcinia Cambogia users also experienced higher energy levels and urge to do regular exercises.
