 Garcinia cambogia Garcinia cambogia
An Ayurvedic herb that inhibits fat production and helps suppress appetite.*
Garcinia Cambogia, also known as the Malabar Tamarind Fruit, is used in India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka both as a food and for health benefits. Garcinia Cambogia's rind is rich in hydroxy-citric acid, which aids weight management by suppressing appetite and inducing weight loss through thermogenic action. It reduces the conversion of carbohydrates into stored fat by inhibiting certain enzyme processes. When less fat is available for use, the body burns calories at an accelerated pace.
