Garcinia cambogia, a plant of the genus Garcinia in the family Garcinaceae, is used as the extract of Garcinia cambogia. After the fruit matures, the pulp and seeds are taken, and the peel is left to dry in the sun and in the shade. Extract its active ingredient HCA (Hydroxy Citric acid; Hydroxy Citric acid), containing 10-30% citric acid like substances. The extracts of Garcinia tenuifolia can be divided into two types: water insoluble and water soluble, mainly due to different production processes. Water soluble products contain potassium salt and magnesium salt; Water insoluble products contain calcium salts. Therefore, the ash content of Garcinia tenuifolia extract is higher.
Increase fat consumption: HCA, a quick acting fat burning ingredient, can quickly activate adrenaline to increase fat consumption, decompose and burn a lot of fat. Reduce fat absorption; The plant cellulose makes the stomach saturated, so that the human body reduces the food intake, thus reducing the phenomenon of fat accumulation caused by excessive fat intake. Accelerate fat decomposition; Malic acid can promote the activity of mitochondrial lipolytic enzyme, rapidly decompose fat accumulated in waist, abdomen and buttocks, and reduce waist circumference.
The weight loss of Garcinia grossedentata is mainly attributed to hydroxycitric acid (HCA), which is present in the exocarp or exocarp of Garcinia grossedentata, accounting for 20~30% of the dry weight. It has been reported that the obese rats were fed with 500 mg HCA twice a day. The results showed that taking HCA could promote the weight loss and the reduction of fat content, visceral fat, total cholesterol and blood glucose curve. The weight-loss mechanism of HCA in Garcinia tenuifolia discussed by researchers is mainly as follows:
(1) HCA is a competitive inhibitor of ATP citrate lyase, which catalyzes the decomposition of citric acid into oxalate and acetyl CoA outside the mitochondria, thus limiting the availability of acetyl CoA, which plays a key role in the synthesis of fatty acids in carbohydrate rich diets. Therefore, HCA can inhibit the synthesis of body fat
(2) In addition, the increase of citric acid not converted to acetyl coenzyme A will accelerate the glycogen production of glucose. Therefore, HCA intake can also stabilize the glucose level in the blood, thus inhibiting hunger and reducing intake.
