Working of Garcinia Cambogia
The primary component of Garcinia Cambogia is hydroxycitric acid or HCA which basically influences the enzymes that convert unused glucose into fat. Glucose is the primary source of energy for bodily needs, it is made by breaking down the carbohydrates consumed as food. The residual glucose, that is not consumed by exercising or normal body energy needs, is stored as fat.
The enzyme that converts glucose into fat is known as citrate lyase. HCA inhibits this enzyme and prevents the production of fat. Another aspect of Garcinia Cambogia is that it helps in breaking down of stored fat cells and also increases metabolism. Metabolism is the rate at which the body consumes the fat by burning or using it for energy.
It also increases the production of serotonin. Serotonin is found in the brain and it is responsible for our moods and its increased level induces a feeling of general well-being. It also acts as an appetite suppressant.
Garcinia Cambogia is easily available over the counter as it’s a non-prescription supplement and weight loss aid. You can easily purchase it offline by picking it up from Walmart or by ordering it from online vendors like Amazon.
