Laguna Beach, CA (PRWEB) June 13, 2013
When Dr. Mehmet Oz, the influential host of TV’s “The Dr. Oz Show”, called Garcinia Cambogia Extract the “holy grail of weight loss” that will help people shed pounds and tone muscle quickly and naturally, many of the millions of viewers who tune in to the program daily sat up and took notice.
But can this “miracle” weight loss product really suppress appetite, promote lean body mass and help the body burn fat faster?
The claims made by Dr. Oz are 100 percent true, according to a recent clinical study described by Dr. Julian Hakim, a graduate of the UNAM Faculty of Medicine.
The two-month randomized, double-blind study was conducted on 60 human volunteers who were given a 2,000 kcal diet/day and participated in a 30 minute walking exercise program 5 days/week.
In the study, which was conducted in Elluru, India, some of the subjects were given hydroxycitric acid (HCA), the key ingredient found in the plant Garcinia Cambogia, while others were given a placebo.
At the end of the eight weeks, food intake, total cholesterol, low-density lipoproteins, triglycerides and serum leptin levels were significantly reduced in the group that used HCA, according to Dr. Hakim, while the subjects who were given a placebo showed a non-significant effect.
“HCA inhibits an enzyme in our bodies named citrate lyase,” Dr. Hakim stated in his summary of the study. “This enzyme is responsible for converting carbohydrates into fatty acids, cholesterol and triglycerides. HCA also has the ability to suppress hunger.”
Dr. Hakim added that HCA also increases the level of serotonin, the chemical neurotransmitter found in the brain that is strongly associated with depression.
“Increasing serotonin is believed to improve mood and decrease emotional eating,” Dr. Hakim said.
The study is only one of several new clinical reports that show the effectiveness of Garcinia Cambogia for weight loss, according to Dr. Hakim.
Garcinia Cambogia is a pumpkin-like fruit native to Indonesia, Asia and Africa. It is known to be rich in HCA and is commonly used to make a variety of native foods, including soups and curry.
For centuries, the plant has been used as a natural remedy by native populations for a variety of conditions, including menstruation problems, edema, removing parasites from the intestines, rheumatism and constipation.
On a recent popular syndicated television program, Dr. Oz recommended that people seeking to lose weight fast consider using Garcinia Cambogia Extract, but only if it contains HCA on the label, has no fillers, binders or any other extra ingredients, and is 100% pure. He also suggested taking at least 2,000 mg/day.
A lot of people have been wondering where to find Garcinia Cambogia. Pure Cambogia is an all-natural product that meets all of Dr. Oz’s criteria and can be purchased from Amazon.com. It has 60 percent HCA, the highest amount of active ingredient available in the marketplace today.
