Garcinia cambogia is one of the most tried and true fat burners available. As nature’s richest source of hydroxycitric aicd (HCA), Garcinia cambogia has traditionally been used for centuries as a condiment in Southeast Asia to make food more filling and satisfying. Nowadays, a significant number of studies have shown that extracts of Garcinia cambogia high in HCA effectively promote fat burning and inhibit fat synthesis, making it an essential supplement for effective weight management.
Higher quality Garcinia cambogia extracts come with standardised amounts of HCA ranging from 50-65%. Taking a standardised Garcinia extract ensures the user gets a minimum amount of HCA, with the recommended therapeutic dose of HCA said to be between 500mg and 1500mg. Garcinia cambogia also synergises effectively with other popular fat burning nutritients like l-carnitine and Gymnema sylvestre; with several studies showing this combination to be effective for fat loss.
