Garcinia Cambogia is a pumpkin-shaped fruit that grows in Southeast Asia and India. Dr. Julie Chen, an integrative medicine doctor featured on the Dr. Oz Show, says while there a many expensive weight-loss supplements on the market, she loves that Garcinia Cambogia is fairly inexpensive as well as effective according to studies. It has been shown to increase weight loss by two to three times when combined with diet and exercise, with the rind of the fruit being the key compound that can be put into a pill form for people to take as a supplement.
This supplement has shown to have the following effects by the research study:
- acts as a fat blocker
- appetite suppressant and controls cravings
- reduce belly fat
- Helps in managing cortisol the stress hormone
- assists emotional eats in balancing moods
Dr. Chen is a firm believer in a healthy lifestyle. She says diet and exercise are the most important factors, with the Garcinia Cambogia offering the added benefit of increasing your weight loss by two to three times the amount you normally would lose with just diet and exercise.
Dr. Chen also indicated that garcinia cambogia has shown to be beneficial to patients who are emotional eaters. The studies have shown it causes an increase in serotonin so their sleep and mood is better, plus it helps to suppress appetite and actually blocks fat from being made. What might be most interesting to many folks is that Garcinia Cambogia works to manage the stress hormone called Cortisol, so a lot of times patients will notice a decrease in their belly fat.
Dr. Julie Chen calls Garcinia Cambogia a dual-action fat buster because it suppresses your appetite, leaving you feeling less hungry, and it helps to prevent fat from being produced in the body and moves it toward glycogen which is actually an energy source for your muscles when you exercise. This combination of benefits is something that makes it completely different than any other weight loss supplement.
Dr. Oz emphasizes that this is not just a pill to take. He says in combination with a healthy diet and regular exercise it can be a key to better overall health.
