There are two forms of fat in the human body: triglycerides and fatty acids. Human fat/adipose tissue/love handles – whatever you call it – this is the fat stored as triglycerides. Fatty acids are burned for fuel. Inside the fat cell, fatty acids continually ‘cycle’ across the cell membrane and back out again. Fatty acids can be used as fuel during this process (or recycled/stored if they are not used).
Garcinia Cambogia is found naturally in India and parts of Asia, and also on the Pacific coast of South and Central America all the way from Peru up to Mexico, and likes a humid forested environment. Also known as Brindall berries, garcinia is believed to act as an appetite suppressant and allows you to lose weight by diminishing your desire for food. Not only does Garcinia Cambogia suppress your appetite, but it also limits the body's ability to turn carbohydrates into fat. This factor, combined with increased calorie burning and a suppressed appetite, prohibit the body from converting excess carbohydrates into stored body fat. In fact, instead of increasing your body fat, you'll increase your energy.
Highly refined sugar, in the form of table sugar or high fructose corn syrup, is kryptonite to optimal health. Your energy, immune system, metabolism, hormones and inflammatory markers are all negatively affected. The overwhelming availability of this ingredient in the developed world has given rise to obesity and diabetes. With increased sugar intake, the signs of aging, weight gain, fatigue, bone loss, poor sleep, mental fatigue and depression escalate.
Native to India and Africa, the climbing shrub Gymnema Sylvestre has a long history of use in Ayurvedic medicine. Today, it is gaining support from the National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health as helpful in controlling blood sugar levels in people with type 1 and 2 diabetes. Gymnema Sylvestre is renowned for its use in promoting healthy blood glucose levels and supporting the proper function of the pancreas. A little Gymnema Sylvestre on the tongue has the power to dull the taste buds to the sense of sweet, thus it is known as the ‘killer of sweet’. It promotes the healthy production of insulin and supports the body’s natural metabolic process. Gymnema Sylvestre also promotes healthy management of the appetite and sugar cravings.
