If one looks at the people on average city street in Asia and then surveys a typical population in a North American mall, they may well notice a preponderance of thinner people in the Asian setting. One could suggest that genetics were involved, that the average diet was a factor, or you could even propose reasons less flattering and be deemed partially right. However, I’m suggesting here that one traditional ingredient found in Asia is also a partial reason. That ingredient is Garcinia Cambogia. Garcinia cambogia
Garcinia Cambogia grows in Asia and particularly in Indonesia where it is native. The ripened fruit is eaten but an extract of Garcinia Cambogia is used in making some popular curries. It’s been recently discovered that the sour curry ingredient has the effect of burning fat and suppressing the appetite. And here we were all thinking that Asian people were often thinner because they just hadn’t been ‘super-sized’ at fast food outlets yet. To the complete reverse, an item in their everyday food is helping them to remain trim. Hey! I want my burger with Garcinia Cambogia curry! cambogiagarcinia
So what does Garcinia Cambogia do exactly? It really runs the gamut of a fat burning diet supplement. It is an appetite suppressant to help the dieter stave off between meal snacks. Garcinia Cambogia extract is an actual fat burning enhancement agent and it is an energy booster as well.
Now you might well be asking if Garcinia Cambogia to suppress appetite really works. I have to say that there are mixed reviews on the subject. I read of one clinical study that suggested people using it for fat loss and appetite control experienced only a little more gain than those who were taking a placebo. Personally though, I believe placebo studies are not ideal in the first place because of the psychological benefits of the placebo effect so I don’t put much store in those. I prefer first hand accounts or at least a study that compares the results of using a particular weight loss supplement versus a test group that used no supplements or placebos at all.
I can also insert an observation on my own situation. I’m currently on a long-term stay in Southeast Asia and I do like curry. My body type is North American but I’ve experienced a pleasant and unexpected loss of fat lately. Is this appetite suppression a function of the Garcinia Cambogia that I’ve been eating in my curry meals? Is it my increased perspiration and fat burning due to the climate being hotter than I’m used to? Has my diet that now includes far more rice than wheat flour products helped me lose the weight or is it a combination of all of the above and more? I don’t know for sure but I sure like it.
I want to end here by saying also that the sour curry that contains the Garcinia Cambogia extract ingredient is delicious and you should look to try it for its flavor as well as its fat burning effects. If you’re primarily interested in obtaining Garcinia Cambogia as a fat burning and appetite suppressing diet supplement you will find it readily available.
