BRINDLEBERRY (GARCINIA CAMBOGIA) FOR WEIGHT LOSS
Extracted from the dried fruit rind of garcinia cambogia, it is a source of hydroxycitric acid (HCA).
The HCA extract helps to block fat, and suppresses the appetite.
Essentially, it stops the body from producing fat cells by inhibiting the enzyme, citrate lyase, that your body requires to convert fat from carbohydrates. Usually carbohydrates or sugars are not immediately used or stored turn into fats. When HCA inhibits citrate lyase, the process is interrupted and the production of LDL (bad cholesterol) as well as triglycerides decrease.
HCA also suppresses appetite by increasing levels of serotonin, a neurotransmitter in the brain that makes you feel good. It is believed that low levels of serotonin compel people to eat reactively (emotionally). By increasing serotonin levels, HCA improves mood and suppresses the drive to react to stressful situations with food.
As you eat less, your body releases stored fat in your fat cells.
