GARCINIA CAMBOGIA EXTRACT – is a plant that is a source of hydroxycitric acid (HCA), which is a slimming chemical. Hydroxycitric acid is an inhibitor of the citrate lipase enzyme. Its presence reduces the amount of acetyl-CoA, which is available in the process of fatty acid synthesis. Consumption of preparations containing Garcinia extracts may have an appetite suppressing effect. It helps to reduce the amount of food consumed, while helping to block the production of fatty acids and increasing glycogen synthesis in the liver.
Garcinia cambogia extract is recommended for use during periods of fat reduction. In sports supplementation, it occurs in the form of a mono-preparation or as an addition to complex thermogenics.
Dosage: 500-1000 mg per day.
