Garcinia Cambogia Health Benefits 

Garcinia Cambogia-trim-woman-with-barbellsGarcinia Cambogia, a citrus fruit that grows primarily in Southeast Asia, has become increasingly popular for its reported ability to increase weight loss.

The benefits of Garcinia Cambogia supplementation may also include:

Faster Metabolism

One of the reported health benefits of Garcinia is its ability to boost your metabolism. The hydroxycitric acid (HCA) found in the rind of Garcinia has the ability to stabilize your body’s metabolic chemical reactions helping your metabolic process work more efficiently. When your metabolism is working better, you will experience an increase in your energy levels, and burn more calories throughout the day.

Improved Immunity

Garcinia Cambogia also has the ability to improve your immune system, increasing your body’s ability to better respond to infections, diseases, and illnesses. Garcinia Cambogia fruit is a rich source of vitamin C as well as HCA and the combination may actually shorten the length of time you are sick from colds or the flu.

Lowers Cholesterol

The hydroxycitric acid in Garcinia decreases the number of lipids in your bloodstream, blocking the overproduction of “bad” cholesterol and allows production of more “good” cholesterol. In addition to improved cholesterol ratios, HCA also lowers your blood pressure, directly reducing your risks for developing heart disease.

Increased Weight Loss

The most publicized health benefit of Garcinia Cambogia is its ability to increase weight loss. In addition to the increase in your metabolic rate, Garcinia can reduce your appetite and help control cravings, allowing you to make it through your day on fewer calories and less sugar. Studies suggest that Garcinia and HCA may also slow the process by which your body converts carbohydrates to body fat by inhibiting the enzyme citrate lyase that your body uses to make fat from carbohydrates, known as fatty acid biosynthesis.

Scientists and Nutritionists continue to study hydroxycitric acid and Garcinia and have identified additional health benefits associated with Garcinia Cambogia including pain relief and reduced inflammation related to arthritis, detoxification benefits that protect your urinary and renal systems, improved digestion, and promotion of your natural healing process for wounds and infections.

Garcinia Cambogia has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine throughout India and Southeast Asia. If you choose to add Garcinia to your diet or through supplementation, increasing your fluid intake will increase the effectiveness of many of its natural health benefits. Drinking water will also enhance Garcinia’s natural ability to suppress your appetite and hunger cravings, allowing you to more easily adopt healthier eating habits.
