You may already know that carbohydrates and sugars that are not used immediately by the body for energy production are converted into fats and stored for later use. This is due to the function of an enzyme called ATP Citrate Lyase that plays a key role in the metabolism of carbohydrates and fatty acids. HCA from pure Garcina Cambogia extract naturally inhibits ATP citrate lyase, which serves to halt the fat production process. Additionally, the production of LDL (bad cholesterol) and triglycerides is decreased.
HCA has another amazing benefit in that it works to improve mood by helping to increase serotonin levels in your brain. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter which is known to contribute to feelings of well-being and happiness, and help regulate appetite and sleeping patterns. Low levels of serotonin are known to contribute to depression and anxiety; which commonly leads lead to “emotional eating” for many people.
