Garcinia Cambogia Extract May Reduce Abdominal Fat






An article published in the July, 2008 edition of the peer-reviewed journal Bioscience, Biotechnology, and Biochemistry described a study in which an obesity-prone breed of mice were fed garcinia cambogia extract in order to determine the various biological effects that the popular herbal weight loss remedy would have on the animals' bodies. The scientists went much further than simply measuring whether the mice would lose weight using garcinia extract.

Mechanisms Behind Garcinia Weight Loss

They were actually interested in uncovering the potential mechanisms that might underly garcinia weight loss. In order to accomplish this, they fed the garcinia fruit extract to the mice on a regular basis and then studied the specific effects that the supplement had had on the mices' fat-producing genetic transcription. The scientists measured the levels of mRNA codings for various genes that are known to control the production of various types of body fat, especially "visceral fat" which forms in the abdomen.

Genetic Effects of Garcinia Extract

While garcinia kola has been known for quite some time to produce a noticeable reduction in abdominal fat in many human subjects, this study may shed some light on the reasons for why this might be the case. The mice fed garcinia cambogia extract showed much lower levels of belly fat as well as blood lipids that the mice who did not receive the garcinia tincture. A number of specific fat-producing genes were isolated which control the production and regulation of these and other types of body fat in the mice, which had been effectively modulated by garcinia cambogia supplementation.

Garcinia Cambogia Safety

This study did not thoroughly address issues surrounding garcinia safety or help to determine who should not use garcinia cambogia, but it did provide an incredible boon to future researchers in the area of fat loss and also the reversal of certain types of diabetes and insulin-resistance. Garcinia extract was also found to ameliorate some types of metabolic resistances such as these in the mice used in this study.

Garcinia Cambogia Extract for Humans

While this study was performed only on mice, and a particular genetically idiosyncratic breed of mice at that, it still may give indication of certain metabolic change that may be taking place in human subject when they take a garcinia cambogia extract supplement or even sit down to sip a cup of garcinia cambogia tea, since these individuals possess many of the same genes that were found to be altered in the mice in this study.

Future study of Garcinia Cambogia Weight Loss

Hopefully we will see more of this type of genetic research in the coming years not only so that we may learn about garcinia weight loss but also so that we may understand more about weight loss diets, and body fat accumulation and amelioration in general. Since obesity has been found in study after study to be directly related to overall death rates as well as rates of quality-of-life reducing degenerative diseases, this research into the mechanisms behind garcinia cambogia extract's help with weight reduction should help us to better understand how people can be more healthy.

Welcome to the Garcinia Cambogia Extract Research Center






Thank you for visiting the Garcinia Cambogia Extract Research Center. This blog has only one purpose, and that is to make the peer-reviewed clinical literature on garcinia cambogia fruit and extract available and accessible to the general public.

Garcinia Cambogia fruit extract has been described as an effective weight loss aid and has been investigated fairly extensively to that end. It tends to be difficult for the public to find straightforward information about garcinia fruit extract because, like other weight loss supplements, it has the potential to be a very lucrative product and so is highly attractive to marketers.

However, Garcinia Cambogia and its cousins Garcinia Mangostana, Garcinia Indica, and Garcinia Atroviridis have been found to have many benefits outside of being a potential weight loss aid. This blog will go through the available research carefully in order to allow you to draw your own conclusions about garcinia extract and its potential for use as a dietary supplement. Topics such as garcinia cambogia side effects will be addressed to the extent that they are addressed in the available literature. We will do our best to be comprehensive and to stick to what is written in the peer-reviewed research on the effects of garcinia extract. However, you will be ultimately responsible for contacting your doctor for any questions or clarifications before taking any action.
