Nat­u­ral ways to con­fi­dent curves GARCINIA CAMBOGIA

The Sun (Malaysia) - - SUNBIZ -

POOR diet, a lack of ex­er­cise and our in­creas­ingly seden­tary way of life are pri­mary con­trib­u­tors to the rise of obe­sity in our coun­try. Be­sides the neg­a­tive health im­pact, be­ing over­weight can af­fect our life in other ways such as by dis­tort­ing our out­look on life and de­stroy­ing our self­con­fi­dence.

While diet and ex­er­cise are rec­om­mended meth­ods to shed the pounds, there are var­i­ous ways to man­age weight is­sues, in­clud­ing di­etary sup­ple­ments.

The key to ideal weight is to aim to be healthy and strong in­stead of be­ing thin. More women to­day are em­brac­ing their beau­ti­ful curves. In ef­fect, it makes them feel good in­ter­nally, thus boost­ing their self­es­teem and con­fi­dence lev­els. For those who need a lit­tle help in get­ting started on man­ag­ing their weight, Garcinia or more specif­i­cally the hy­drox­yc­itric acid (HCA) ex­tracted from the Garcinia Cambogia trop­i­cal fruit, is a widely recog­nised nat­u­ral prod­uct used in tack­ling obe­sity and aid­ing in weight man­age­ment. Used for cen­turies through­out Asia for culi­nary pur­poses, gen­er­ally as a condi­ment and flavour­ing agent (usu­ally as a sub­sti­tute for tamarind or lemon), it is also known to make one feel sa­ti­ated.

Fat stored in the body is a by-prod­uct of un­used en­ergy or glu­cose which has been con­verted by par­tic­u­lar en­zymes. What HCA (ex­tracted from Garcinia) does is: It blocks th­ese en­zymes and pre­vents the for­ma­tion of fat de­posits. The body then works to burn the fat cells by break­ing down their pro­tec­tive pro­teins known as per­ilipin, thus in­creas­ing me­tab­o­lism. HCA also in­creases the re­lease of sero­tonin in the brain and in­flu­ences the neu­ropep­tide Y func­tion, thereby sup­press­ing ap­petite and the de­sire to binge-eat.

Hence, HCA from Garcinia is ben­e­fi­cial in re­duc­ing vis­ceral fat (the fat stored within the ab­domen or around a num­ber of im­por­tant in­ter­nal or­gans) and sub­cu­ta­neous fat (the fat that is stored just un­der our skin). HCA also helps cut down belly fat, waist and hip cir­cum­fer­ence. Along with low­er­ing LDL (bad choles­terol) and triglyc­erides, HCA also in­creases HDL (good choles­terol).
