Garcinia cambogia (Garcinia gummi-gutta), also known as brindle berry or Malabar tamarind, is a tropical plant native to Southeast and South Asia. Garcinia cambogia fruits resemble small pumpkins and range in color from green to pale yellow. Southeast Asian countries use Garcinia cambogia as a souring ingredient in many curry recipes. Ayurvedic cultures believe sour flavors stimulate digestion and use Garcinia cambogia for this purpose. The fruit peel is rich in hydroxycitric acid (HCA), a derivative of citric acid. Garcinia cambogia supplements come from extracted HCA and may support weight loss efforts.
Garcinia cambogia supplement powder may support weight loss efforts due to its high HCA content. Research shows supplements containing 50-60% HCA provide superior results compared to weaker concentrations. Several clinical trials have reported that Garcinia cambogia supplements contribute to weight loss efforts. Participants taking Garcinia cambogia lost two pounds more than participants taking a placebo in as little as two weeks.
Garcinia cambogia has a couple of mechanisms that may support weight loss efforts. Garcinia cambogia helps suppress appetite and promotes a feeling of fullness. Researchers believe this is because Garcinia increases serotonin—a known appetite suppressant—in the brain. Garcinia’s interaction with leptin hormones may also contribute. Leptin hormones regulate hunger and feelings of satiety. Overweight individuals often have leptin resistance, which disrupts the brain’s ability to feel sated. As a result, the brain triggers food-seeking behavior while reducing energy levels. Garcinia may help rectify this by decreasing leptin levels. Garcinia also appears to reduce fats in the blood and fatty acid production. It may inhibit belly fat accumulation in overweight individuals by blocking citrate lyase enzymes, which play an essential role in fat production.
Most healthy adults can take Garcinia cambogia supplements without issue. Garcinia cambogia may cause headaches and digestive upset. It may also interact with certain medications and medical conditions. Individuals taking depression medication that affects serotonin should not take Garcinia cambogia. Individuals with liver conditions should not take Garcinia cambogia. Garcinia may interact with diabetes medication, as it can lower glucose and insulin levels.
