You might be wondering what exactly is Garcinia cambogia extract? How does it help you to lose weight? Whether it really works for weight loss or not? These questions might be in your mind right now.
Garcinia is actually a plant extract, which is mainly found in Indonesia. It is a small fruit and the local people of Indonesia or Malaysia use it from centuries in some form or the other. It is said that in villages of Malaysia, this garcinia cambogia is used to make soup which is taken before meals in order to suppress appetite and help in losing weight. The world has just come to know of its amazing benefits but this fruit has been in use in some places from a long time.
There are many ways in which Garcinia can help in speeding up your weight loss efforts. It can act as an appetite suppressant. It also prevents fat build up in the body. It can also prevent people from indulging in binge or emotional eating.
As you might know, emotional eating is an ailment in which people who suffer from anxiety, stress, depression or bad moods turn towards foods to lift their mood. They indulge in bouts of binge eating just because they have got into the habit of eating for emotional comfort. Garcinia can help in preventing that because the hydroxycitric acid (HCA) present in Garcinia increases serotonin levels in the human body. This serotonin helps people feel good about themselves and lifts their mood. So, there is no need for emotional eating anymore.
