Natural “magic Pumpkin” From India Helps Diabetics To Lower Weight And Cholesterol
For thousands of years, inhabitants of this remote South India region have known what the world is starting to understand. A staple in the Indian diet, this wild, exotic fruit has been recently tested by U.S. scientists as a remedy to help Type 2 diabetics overcome fatty weight gain and high cholesterol.
A wild-growing plant, shaped like a small yellow pumpkin, may hold the secret to improved diabetic health. It’s a small, yellowish fruit that looks like a pumpkin. Found only in India and Southeast Asia, it’s been used for thousands of years by natives to reduce hunger pangs and maintain lean body mass.
A natural fruit product, its dried rind yields a high level of the active ingredient HCA. This substance called hydroxycitric acid (HCA), has been clinically tested to reduce hunger, give the user a feeling of fullness and help to more efficiently metabolize fat in the body, resulting in weight loss.
This powerful compound was used for centuries by indigenous bush people, who used the “magic pumpkin” to slow hunger and to keep them in lean, fighting condition.
These people believed that it held the secrets to natural health and well-being and ate it whole or added it to their food.
U.S. scientists agree. After conducting double blind placebo tests on garcinia cambogia, this ‘magic pumpkin’ does, when subjected to impartial clinical measurement standards, help restore conditions and afflictions common in Type 2 sufferers.
Dr. Harry Preuss of the Georgetown University Medical Center found that this product helps make users feel fuller, less hunger, speed the metabolization of fat intake and lower cholesterol levels.
One of the leading providers of this ingredient located north of San Francisco has commissioned safety studies on the product. According to the Burdock Group, this natural substance has shown to have no short or long term toxic impact on users.
Diabetics often suffer from excess fatty weight. An additional benefit of garcinia cambogia is that it attacks only fat, not muscle, which providers a leaner body, valued today and by bush people from centuries ago.
How does it work?
The dried fruit rind of Garcinia cambogia is a rich source of HCA. Amazingly, it has also been used in more recent centuries as a spice, flavor-enhancer, preservative and digestive aid throughout Southeast Asia.
Thus, it has a long history of consumption by the peoples in countries where the plant is native. Structurally, HCA is similar to the common food additive citric acid, which also occurs naturally in citrus fruits such as oranges and lemons. Some forms of HCA have demonstrated a much higher bioavailability in humans; so all HCA is not equal.
A primary mode of HCA action appears to be its ability to inhibit ATP-citrate lyase, an enzyme that helps to form the building blocks of fatty acids and cholesterol.
