Natural ways to confident curves GARCINIA CAMBOGIA
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).
