A few years ago became quite the rage in the diet and health arena in Italy, as it has been credited with considerable weight loss by simply taking supplements that contain the substance.
Garcinia cambogia is a melon like fruit that grows in Southeast Asia and India. The locals have used the food for centuries as a seasoning and for large meals so that people won’t eat so much.
The supplement has somewhat the same effect in that it does work as an appetite suppressant because it contains a substance that is called hydroxycitric acid which blocks an enzyme that stimulates the hunger urge in us all. This does work because if we are not as hungry, we simply will not eat as much, thus we will lose weight. This is certainly a great start, but this is not the end of the advantage of this fruit.
Garcinia cambogia is also a fat burner, meaning that instead of letting the fat that we eat enter the digestive system and then be stored in fat cells, the garcinia cambogia metabolizes the fat into energy prior to it being full digested. This cuts down on the storage of fat, but there is even more. It will also go into already stored fat and burn it as well, thus it helps to take off the pounds.
The Garcinia Cambogia craze began several years ago when Dr. Oz emphasized it on his television show. He explained all of the benefits and attributes of the substance, and then he announced that he had commissioned a proprietary study to determine if the product really worked, and the results were in that it had worked very well.
This started a demand for the product that has not ended even unto this day. As more and more people began to use the product with great success, there were many private companies who began to put the product on the market, and soon there was a world-wide boom.
Not just Italy but all of EU
Of course, there were the detractors who said that the product was really not all that it was cracked up to be, but it is impossible to totally fool the public, especially people who had actually used the product and who have had a good experience with the product.
It really boiled down to the fact that the Garcinia Cambogia substance reacted differently to different kinds of people. Some people experience very good results, whereas others did not experience much of a difference at all. Part of the differences were due to different concentrations of the garcinia cambogia in the tablets, and because of different physical makeups of people’s physical capabilities.
The product worked well enough that to this date, millions and millions of dollars of supplements have been sold over and over again to people all over the world, with most people having positive results with it.
This sort of result is going to basically be true with just about any product, and to this date the conclusion would have to be that Garcinia Cambogia is just as successful as Dr. Oz said it would be.
