What is Garcinia Cambogia?
Garcinia cambogia is a plant, also known as Garcinia gummi-gutta.
The fruit of the plant looks like a small, green pumpkin and is used in many traditional Asian dishes for its sour flavor.
In the skin of the fruit, there is a large amount of a natural substance called Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA). This is the active ingredient in Garcinia Cambogia extract… that is, the substance that produces the weight loss effects. “HCA does do that—but in a petri dish,” says Steven Heymsfield, M.D., the former head of the Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Baton Rouge, La. “Converting that to actual weight loss in humans would take 1,000 steps beyond that,” he says.
