Extracted from the South Asian fruit, Garcinia Cambogia (standardized to 60% HCA) is a clinically proven, all-natural, non-stimulating, safe and effective extract shown to curb appetite (satiety), reduce caloric intake, increase lean muscle mass while simultaneously burning fat, lower body weight three times faster than diet and exercise alone, and maintain healthy serotonin and cholesterol levels - all without any negative side effects. Scientifically Proven Results In 2004 and 2005, the U.S. National Library of Medicine published two randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled studies that evaluated the impact and safety of Garcinia Cambogia extract (60% HCA). Over 8 weeks, participants lost an average of 5.4% of their body weight and body mass index (BMI) using the same recommended "Weight Control Serving" of NatureWise Garcinia Cambogia Extract. What's more, food intake, triglycerides, and serum leptin levels were all significantly reduced; serotonin levels and fat oxidation (fat burning) significantly increased; and a healthy cholesterol balance was maintained, without negative side effects. How Does It Work? If carbohydrates are not immediately used for energy, they are converted to fat and stored in the body. NatureWise Garcinia Cambogia blocks the enzymes in your body from converting carbohydrates into fat. It also helps to convert fat into glycogen, a highly usable form of energy for your muscles to burn, and increases serotonin levels, positively impacting peoples' mood, sleep, and experience of feeling full between meals - an important benefit for anyone who struggles with binge-eating.
