The supplement Dr Oz calls ‘the Holy Grail of weight loss’
What is Garcinia Cambogia?
Garcinia Cambogia is a small, pumpkin-shaped fruit also known as Brindleberry or
Malabar Tamarind. Though native to Indonesia, it is also grown in India, Southeast
Asia, and West and Central Africa.
It has long been used in traditional South Asian dishes, including curries and
chutneys. Many also use the fruit for curing fish and preservation. It is also added as
a spice on meals to make them more filling and help with the suppression of
How does Garcinia Cambogia work?
The weight loss benefits of the plant are due to a natural substance found in the nutrient rich rind of the fruit.
The natural extract is known as Hydroxycitric acid (HCA), which has been found to dramatically hasten weight
loss efforts by doing two things: It helps to block fat, and it suppresses your appetite.
HCA is an active ingredient extracted from the rind of Garcinia. It inhibits an enzyme called Citrate Lyase. This
enzyme is responsible for creating fat cells from carbohydrates and converting carbohydrates into cholesterol
and triglycerides.
When HCA inhibits Citrate Lyase, the fat-making process is halted and instead of converting sugar to fat, the
liver will convert the sugar to glycogen – this glycogen is then used as energy. This prevents the formation of
new fat cells in the body .The production of LDL (bad cholesterol) and triglycerides decreases when Citrate
Lyase is inhibited.
Additionally the plant aids emotional eaters, as it balances moods, increasing serotonin levels, which may
improve temperament and enhance sleeping patterns.

Dr Oz’s interview with Dr Chen on Garcinia Cambogia
“How can I burn fat without spending every waking moment exercising and diet?” asked Dr. Oz in a recent
2013 show. His answer? “Well, thanks to brand new scientific research, I can tell you about a revolutionary fat
buster that you are hearing about here first”. His reference was to Garcinia Cambogia, the new scientific
discovery in the latest weight loss research.
Guest Dr. Julie Chen and Dr. Oz explained how this 100% natural ingredient is capable of suppressing the
appetite and preventing fat accumulation. Dr. Oz: “How much weight would an average woman expect to lose
if she uses this for a month for example?”
Dr. Chen: “On average, about four pounds… but, I always recommend diet and exercise with it, so if people
take the supplements with it, they actually will lose 2-3 times what they would normally lose with just diet and
exercise alone.”
Dr. Chen explained how Garcinia Cambogia not only suppresses appetite, but also has the ability to help those
who consume too much food when they are emotionally challenged. It seems this fruit helps people go to
sleep easier and their bodies no longer secrete cortisol, the fat building hormone.
Also discussed was how HCA (the active ingredient) “locks” citrate lyase, the enzyme responsible with
transforming carbs and sugars into fats that get stored in cells and cause weight gain. Additionaly,HCA is
known to decrease the LDL (bad cholesterol) triglyceride levels.
This fruit’s appetite suppressing qualities are known for increasing the serotonin levels. Low levels of serotonin
induce depression and stress. This leads to emotional eating that causes too much weight gain. HCA increases
the serotonin levels and causes the body to burn fats much easier.

Garcinia Cambogia Extract Research
Scientific reviews report positive results in weight loss, especially when the supplement is being used in
combination with a healthy diet and a regular exercise program.
In one such 8-week scientific study of 60 obese patients, a control group was given HCA, while the other was
given a placebo. By the end of the study, the HCA group met an approximate weight loss of 14 pounds, while
the placebo one lost only 6 pounds. Both groups were on diet consuming only 1,200 calories per day.
The study also revealed LDL, triglycerides and serum leptin levels were dramatically reduced, while HDL (good
cholesterol), serotonin levels, and excretion of urinary fat metabolites (biomarkers of fat burning) were very
much heightened.
Dr. Oz’s final recommendations were to avoid Garcinia Cambogia supplements that are made with artificial
ingredients, to take only the supplements that contain more than 50% HCA, to take 500-1000 mg capsules 30
minutes before each meal and avoid consumption in excess of 3000 mg per day.
Much scientific research is available on Garcinia Cambogia. Some evidence suggests that it may be effective for
weight loss and as an appetite suppressant.

Safety and mechanism of appetite suppression by a novel hydroxycitric acid extract (HCA-SX).
In a previous article it was shown that in the rat brain cortex a novel HCA extract (HCA-SX, Super CitriMax)
increases the release/availability of radiolabeled 5-hydroxytryptamine or serotonin ([3H]-5-HT), a
neurotransmitter implicated in the regulation of eating behavior and appetite control.
The aim of the present study was 2-fold: (a) to determine the effect of HCA-SX on 5-HT uptake in rat brain
cortex in vitro; and (b) to evaluate the safety of HCA-SX in vivo.
Conclusions: HCA is a safe supplement, lethal dose in rats is greater than 5,000mg/kg. HCA also increased the
levels of serotonin in the brain which may be beneficial in appetite control, depression, insomnia, migraine,
among other serotonin deficient conditions.

Effects of a natural extract of (-)-hydroxycitric acid (HCA-SX) and a combination of HCA-SX plus niacin-bound
chromium and Gymnema sylvestre extract on weight loss.
HCA-SX has been shown to reduce appetite, inhibit fat synthesis and decrease body weight without stimulating
the central nervous system.
Hydroxycitric acid (HCA-SX) alone and in combination with niacin-bound chromium (NBC) and a standardized
Gymnema sylvestre extract (GSE) on weight loss in moderately obese subjects was evaluated by monitoring
changes in body weight, body mass index (BMI), appetite, lipid profiles, serum leptin and excretion of urinary
fat metabolites.
A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled human study was conducted in Elluru, India for 8 weeks in 60
moderately obese subjects (ages 21-50, BMI >26 kg/m(2)). Subjects were randomly divided into three groups.

Group A was administered HCA-SX 4667 mg, group B was administered a combination of HCA-SX 4667 mg,
NBC 4 mg and GSE 400 mg, while group C was given placebo daily.
Results: At the end of 8 weeks, body weight and BMI decreased by 5-6% in both groups A and B. Food intake,
total cholesterol, low-density lipoproteins, triglycerides and serum leptin levels were significantly reduced in
both groups. A non-significant effect was observed in all parameters in group C.

An overview of the safety and efficacy of a novel, natural(-)-hydroxycitric acid extract (HCA-SX) for weight
This study was a 90-day toxicity study. The dose dependant effects of HCA-SX were assessed on body weight,
selected organ weights, hepatic and testicular lipid peroxidation and DNA fragmentation, hematology and
clinical chemistry, and histopathology in male and female Sprague-Dawley rats. No toxicity was found after this
Furthermore, clinical studies to evaluate the safety and efficacy of HCA-SX over a period of eight weeks were
conducted in 60 human volunteers. Subjects were given a 2,000 kcal diet/day, participated in a 30 min walking
exercise program 5 days/week and given an oral dose of placebo or 4666.7 mg HCA-SX (providing 2,800 mg
HCA) in three equally divided doses 30-60 min before meals, Body weight, BMI, lipid profiles, serum leptin,
serotonin and excretion of urinary fat metabolites were determined at 0, 4 and 8 weeks of treatment. At the
end of 8 weeks, body weight and BMI decreased by 5.4% and 5.2%, respectively. Food intake, total cholesterol,
LDL, triglycerides and serum leptin levels were significantly reduced, while HDL and serotonin levels, and
excretion of urinary fat metabolites (a biomarker of fat oxidation) significantly increased. No significant
adverse effects were reported.
Results: These results demonstrate the safety, bioavailability and efficacy of HCA-SX in weight management.
