A wide variety of weight management strategies are presently available, and some involve the use of dietary supplements marketed as slimming aids. Garcinia extract, (-)-hydroxycitric acid (HCA) can be considered as one such aid. HCA is a derivative of citric acid and can be extracted in plant species native to South Asia such as Garcinia cambogia, Garcinia indica, and Garcinia atroviridis. It is usually marketed as a weight loss supplement either alone or in combination with other supplements.
Garcinia cambogia Desr, known also like “tamarindo malabar”, is a plant pertaining to the family of the Guttifereae. The yellow-orange fruit color has the shape of pumpkin with thin skin and deep vertical sections that form lobes and commonly used like spice or conserving above all of the fish. In the traditional medicine the fruit of the Garcinia finds is used for the stomachache and it is like oral antiseptic in the mouthwashes.

Some researchers have suggested that HCA causes weight reduction by competitively inhibiting the enzyme adenosine triphosphatase-citrate-lyase. In addition to that, HCA can increase the release or availability of serotonin in the brain, thereby leading to appetite suppression. Other suggested mechanisms include inhibition of pancreatic alpha amylase and intestinal alpha glucosidase, thereby leading to a reduction in carbohydrate metabolism.

The most important fact is Animal studies have suggested that HCA causes weight loss, and human trials involving the use of HCA as a weight loss supplement have been carried out and identified that that Garcinia extracts/HCA can cause short term weight loss.

Based on this information, we can suggest that, it is better to incorporate garcenia to your daily diet. But avoid overconsumption. Also don’t cook garcenia added foods in Aluminium pots. Furthermore, further research need to be focused on the effect of other fruits (Garcenia family) extracts on weight reduction.
