Garcinia Cambogiais has been creating a lot of hype because of its fat burning effects among others. No it isn’t some black market tapeworm, as horrible as it may look. Garcinia Cambogia is a pumpkin shaped fruit often used in cooking that grows in Southeast Asia and India. Medical researchers have been able to extract the fat burning compound from the rind of the fruit and put it in an easy to take and inexpensive capsule called Garcinia Cambogia Extract. Not only does it burn fat but it also raises serotonin levels which lowers stress and many patients have reported a positive change in mood and sleep. Another advantage to this nutritional supplement is that Garcinia Cambogia Extract blocks the body from producing fat and also suppresses appetite. When the body is not making fat it is burning it off. This allows the body to retain more of its muscle tone. Which is why this weight loss method is being praised for its overall wellness qualities.
