Garcinia Cambogia extract, well known as hydroxycitric acid, is generally extracted from the Garcinia Cambogia fruit and is a very popular natural supplement that is widely used as a dietary supplement. According to the USAMD (United States Army Medical Department) the extract helps to lose weight. This small tropical citrus fruit also known as brindle berry is primarily grown in Asia and South India. The Garcinia Cambogia fruit itself is very sour and not that pleasant to eat, although Indians normally use the rind of this fruit as a food preparation spice.
HCA, or Hydroxycitric acid as it is commonly called, enhances the signals sent by your body to the brain indicating that the stomach is full. Hydroxycitric acid also helps to supply energy throughout the body, although it is neither an appetite nor a stimulant suppressant. The pure garcinia cambogia extract has undergone very extensive laboratory testing and it has no significant side effects that have been reported.
