⇒ Forever Living Garcinia Plus.
⇒ The primary ingredient is a natural substance derived from the fruit of a Southern Asian tree, the Garcinia Cambogia, also known as the Malabar Tamarind.
⇒ The rind of this fruit is dried and used to produce Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA).
⇒ Chemically, HCA is very similar to the citric acid found in oranges and other citrus fruits.
⇒ The fruit of the Garcinia is about the size of an orange, but is more like a pumpkin in appearance.
⇒ For centuries, this fruit has been used for culinary and herbal purposes in Southern India and in Thailand.
⇒ Specialists in plant compounds became aware of the remarkable qualities of HCA in the late 1960’s, when they learned that this compound can reduce the body’s production of fats from carbohydrates. ⇒ During the normal metabolism of a meal, carbohydrate calories that are not used immediately for energy or stored as glycogen are converted into fats in the liver.
⇒ HCA works by inhibiting the enzyme (citrate liase) which converts these calories into fat.
⇒ As a result, the body will burn existing fat stores, thus aiding in weight loss.
⇒ When enough glycogen has been created and
stored in the liver, a message is sent to the brain indicating sufficient food has been taken.
⇒ This action is called a satiety reflex, and quells the appetite, reducing the desire for more food.
⇒ INGREDIENTS Garcinia Cambogia Extract, Safflower Oil, Gelatin, Glycerin, Medium-chain Triglyceride Vegetable Oil (MCT or Thin Oil), Purified Water, Beeswax, Lecithin, Carob Extract, Titanium Dioxide, and Chromium Picolinate.
