What is Garcinia Cambogia Extract?
Garcinia cambogia is a fruit rich in HCA (hydroxycitric acid). This particular extract is standardized for 60% HCA.
Garcinia (Containing Hydroxycitric Acid) Benefits
This extract inhibits the citric acid lysase enzyme, which is required for fatty acid synthesis. Lab studies involving animals found that HCA resulted in reduced food intake and bodyweight. However, this has yet to be reproduced in human studies.
Despite this, garcinia is commonly marketed as a weight supplement.
Powder Dosage and Instructions
Take 2x 500mg capsules for a total of 1000mg 60% HCA garcinia cambogia extract. Take this up to 3 times daily before meals.
Garcinia cambogia extract is often taken with other weight health supplements such as raspberry ketones and green coffee bean extract.
