Garcinia is a tropical plant that presently grows naturally on the islands of Indonesia. Garcinia finds its place both in traditional cuisine and in traditional medicine.
As a spice to food, Garcinia is widely used in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Burma, India, and Sri Lanka. In India Garcinia is used in curry. In Ayurvedic medicine, it is considered that the acid taste improves the digestion and usually, Garcinia is used in combinations for intestinal and stomach problems.
The use of Garcinia Cambogia is associated mainly with fat burning and due to this effect, it is advertised on the show of Dr. Oz. The useful properties of Garcinia are related with the main active ingredient in the fruit - hydroxycitric acid, known by its abbreviation HCA.
The main mechanism of action is the ability of HCA to block the enzyme citric acid lipase that is responsible for the formation of fatty acids - a process that is also called de novo lipogenesis.
According to some experts, Garcinia is not a weight loss product, but its main purpose is to block the accumulation of carbohydrates as fats, making it pure carbohydrate blocker.
