How Garcninia Cambogia Works
The extract from Garcinia Cambogia has been shown to aid in weight loss and appetite suppression. This extract, Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA), helps to block fat by inhibiting a vital enzyme Citrate Lyase, that your body needs to make fat from carbohydrates. When HCA inhibits citrate lyase, the fat-making process is halted and the production of LDL (bad cholesterol) and triglycerides decrease. HCA also suppresses appetite by increasing serotonin levels. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter in your brain that makes you feel good. Having low levels of serotonin may make you feel depressed or anxious; it drives many people into emotional or reactive eating. By increasing serotonin levels, HCA improves mood and suppresses the drive to react to stressful situations with food. As you eat less, your body senses this and it releases stored fat in your fat cells.
