Garcinia cambogia is a small tree with reddish-yellow, pumpkin-shaped fruit, native to India and Southeast Asia. In India, Garcinia cambogia (commonly known as Malabar tamarind) was considered to make food more filling and satisfying, and the sour fruit is added to Thai and Indian dishes. The rind of the fruit is a rich source of the metabolically-active hydroxycitric acid (HCA), which is proven to have stamina building and fat blocking capabilities. Garcinia extract could therefore support lifestyle changes such as enhancing one’s weight loss or physical activity regimen. Studies have found that HCA can restrain an enzyme that turns carbs into fat.
