Garcinia is a natural remedy to help prevent obesity. The hydroxycitric acid in it helps in breaking down the fats in the body system which leads to weight reduction.
Garcinia contains many anti-diabetic effects that increase insulin sensitivity, reduce inflammation, and improve the overall blood sugar balance.
Garcinia is used as an ingredient for healthy calorie-reduced diets.
Garcinia grows in small to medium-sized trees and is native to Sri Lanka, India, and other Southeast Asian countries. This fruit contains a chemical hydroxycitric acid (HCA) which is linked with having effects on one’s appetite and is responsible for most of the weight loss benefits.
The fruit of Garcinia Cambogia looks like a small pumpkin and is usually green or light yellow in colour and the size may range from dark brown to black during the drying and curing process of the fruit.
The fruit is primarily used in the preparation of curries. The fruit has a sour taste and is used to help the digestion process in Indian Ayurvedic Medicine. One of the main uses of Garcinia is to flavor and preserve fish curries.
