Tamarind, Citrimax, Garcinia Cambogia

Currently the most highly favored weight-loss supplement. Enhanced metabolism of fat for increases in energy. The appetite is satisfied earlier in each meal. Reduced cholesterol. Hydroxycitric Acid and minerals. The herb Garcinia cambogia, a diminutive purple fruit native to India and southeast Asia, has garnered a lot of attention of late as a popular natural weight loss aid. The reason is that the rind of this pumpkin-like fruit is rich in a substance called hydroxycitric acid, or HCA, which is closely related to the citric acid found in grapefruits and oranges.

Animal and test-tube studies indicate that HCA may promote weight loss in two basic ways. First, HCA seems to work in part by blocking the conversion of sugary foods and starches into fats. Put another way, this means HCA is believed to help inhibit fat production. Second, recent findings indicate that by raising levels of certain brain chemicals such as serotonin, a key regulator of appetite control, HCA also may suppress appetite. Hydroxycitrate (HCA) promotes lipid oxidation and spares carbohydrate utilization. Garcinia may have gastric ulcer protecting properties. Hydroxycitrate (or hydroxycitric acid) derived from Garcinia cambogia, by itself, is unlikely to lead to weight loss, but in combination with other nutrients and herbs it could help.

Garcina Cambogia Extract, also known as Citrimax, contains 50% hydroxycitric acid (HCA) which suppresses appetite by redirecting calories away from fat production and towards the formation of glycogen. Glycogen is the stored form of glucose, one of the body’s primary sources of energy. Increased glycogen production and storage is the body’s normal way of signaling the brain’s satiety center that enough food has been eaten. HCA is not a central nervous system stimulant. HCA is most effective at influencing appetite, increasing energy levels and inhibiting fat and cholesterol production when used in combination with niacin-bound chromium (Chromemate). Citrimax is recommended as a dieting aid supported by exercise and a balanced nutritional diet.
