Garcinia cambogia (Garcinia indica) or Malabar tamarind also known as “Vrikshamla” in Sanskrit has been used for centuries in Ayurveda as vata and kapha dosha pacifying dravya and as food ingredient.
The active constituent of fruit rind of Garcinia cambogia is hydrocytric acid or HCA, which hinders the work of citrate lyase in the body. Citrate lyase is an enzyme responsible for changing carbohydrates into fatty acids. By halting the carbohydrate conversion process, HCA blocks fat formation.
Hydrocytric acid (HCA) also increases serotonin levels. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter involved in a wide range of mental and physical functions, including sleep, mood, and eating behavior. Serotonin deficiency causes conditions like depression, low energy, anxiety, overeating, insomnia, schizophrenia, migraine headaches and Bulimia. Garcinia increases serotonin levels, which helps in curbing overeating and increases feel good factor.
