Garcinia contains significant amounts of Vitamin C and has been used as a heart tonic. Research suggests that this natural extract may also inhibit the conversion of excess calories to body fat. Additionally, appetite is also suppressed by promoting synthesis of glycogen. Glycogen is the stored form of glucose, one of the body's primary sources of energy. Increased glycogen production and storage is the body's normal way of signaling the brain'ssatiety centre that enough food has been eaten. This has made Garcinia a very effective herbal medicine for controlling obesity and cholesterol. It is well established as a fat burning agent all over the world. It is recommended as a dieting aid supported by exercise and a balanced nutritional diet.
SIDE EFFECTS - None            DRUG INTERACTIONS - None       CONTRAINDICATIONS - None


FAQ - What is Garcinia?
Garcinia, also known as Garcinia Cambogia, Mangosteen, and Brindall berries, is an herb that is known to inhibit the synthesis of lipids and fatty acids lowering the formation of LDL cholesterol and triglycerides. Additionally, appetite is also suppressed by promoting synthesis of glycogen, thus sending the brain signals of satisfaction and fullness sooner.


Who can take Garcinia?
Garcinia can be taken by practically everyone, regardless of age and gender. Garcinia can be taken for the following reasons:
- Helps reduce body's ability to store fat
- Lowers body weight through appetite control
- Lowers serum triglycerides
- Creates a process in the body called thermogenesis
- Helps with catarrhal conditions of the throat, urinary system, and uterus

- Garcinia does not contain any addictive components and can be taken without fear of addiction for extended periods of time.
- Garcinia has been found to have no adverse or toxic side effects. However, consuming more than 10 g could prevent mineral absorption or cause gastric irritation.

What kind of action does Garcinia have on the body?
Garcinia's effect is to stifle the body's ability to turn-over the supply of carbohydrates into fat and augment calorie-burning. It is known to subdue appetite, slowing down the conversion of excess carbohydrates into fat. In this process, it will build additional stores of body energy (glucose). Garcinia has been shown to inhibit fat storage and is active as an appetite suppressant, burning fat via thermogenesis. Subsequently, it efficiently compounds glucose and builds up glycogen stores. The result is less hunger, a reduction in fat and experience of more energy. Garcinia, when taken over a period of time, has the ability to slow production of fat and help the body metabolize it more efficiently. Garcinia increases how much energy the body burns (basal metabolic rate). Garcinia helps reduces carbohydrate craving and appetite, overall and increases weight loss during dieting.
Herbal medicines provide progressive, long-term benefits. Certain classes of herbs work well in acute conditions to provide quick relief, however herbs like Garcinia need to be taken for at least 3-4 weeks before the benefits of taking it can be experienced. Optimally, you may have to take Garcinia for anywhere between 3 and 6 months to experience the full range of benefits. Individual results can vary.

Its formula has been subjected to the modern scrutiny of clinical testing to prove its benefits in gently addressing your health concerns, and its quality is controlled by the most sophisticated chromatographic "fingerprinting" techniques.
