Garcinia cambogia is a citrus fruit that is grown in India and Southeast Asia. The fruit was used in the past in various culinary preparations, and is currently also used to obtain nutritional supplements for weight loss.

The rind of the fruit contains a compound called hydroxycitric acid (HCA), a derivative of citric acid. This compound is the one included in weight loss supplements. Some preliminary studies have suggested that AHA may prevent fat storage, control appetite, and increase endurance.

As mentioned above, Garcinia Cambogia products are generally promoted as effective in weight loss and increasing the body's resistance to exercise. In addition, many people use supplements containing AHAs to treat intestinal parasites, speed up digestion, and treat joint pain and diarrhea.

What does Garcinia extract contain?

Garcinia mangostana (L) pericarp extracts contain a high concentration of prenylated xanthones, such as alpha-, beta- and gamma-mangostin and related molecules. These extracts possess a wide range of biological properties, including anticancer, anti-inflammatory, anti-proliferative, antioxidant and pro-apoptotic activities. Until now, alpha-, beta- and gamma-mangostin have been extensively studied due to its applications in nutritional supplements, herbal cosmetics and pharmaceutical preparations.

It also contains hydroxycitric acid, vitamin C, B group vitamins and large amounts of potassium.

What is the pharmacological action of Garcinia extract?
  • Antioxidant effect
The antioxidant effect is manifested by the neutralization of free radicals that are responsible for the appearance of various imbalances in the body. Garcinia contains a wide range of antioxidants.
  • Antiviral, antibacterial and antiparasitic effect
These possible effects may be due to xanthones, which are found in very large numbers in the composition of garcinia. Xanthones are compounds that act against bacteria, fungi and parasites. B group vitamins can increase the body's resistance to infections.
  • Anti-fatty effect
Hydroxycitric acid could prevent fat storage, control appetite and increase endurance.
  • Increasing athletic performance
Garcinia cambogia is also marketed as a supplement that can improve athletic performance. Researchers have found that both animal and human studies have provided some evidence to support this claim.

The use of garcinia or hydroxycitric acid can increase the level of resistance during physical exercises.
