A tropical fruit known as malabar tamarind is a popular weight loss supplement. People say that it blocks the body’s ability to reproduce fat and stops your appetite. This can help maintain blood sugar and cholesterol levels.
How does it work?
The active ingredient in the peel of the fruit, hydroxycitric acid or HSS increases fat burning and reduces appetite. It blocks an enzyme called citrate lyase, which your body uses to reproduce fat. It also raises brain serotonin levels, which makes you feel less hungry.
The best and worst diet for diabetes.
According to a number of publications, people who took garcinia cambogia lost about 2 kilograms more than people who did not take it. It is difficult to prove that this is due to this miraculous supplement. It may be due to the low calorie diet and exercise programs that people follow during the diet.
Diabetes and high cholesterol
Garcinia cambogia can make it easier for your body to use glucose when your cells need energy.
In studies with mice that took garcinia, they had lower insulin levels. This is important to mention, as it often happens that a person who is on a diet and taking garcinia along with other blood sugar control medications can find themselves with dangerously low glucose levels. Therefore, always consult a doctor before taking supplements.
