Garcinia: natural ingredient of Kalospeed

Garcinia Cambogia (Botanical name: Garcinia Cambogia Desr. - Fam. Guttiferae), a plant native to Southeast Asia, which is used in herbal weight-loss products for the presence in the skin of the fruit of hydroxycitric acid. It seems that the acid acts on the enzyme citratoliasi or directly on the acetyl-coenzyme A, blocking the synthesis of fatty acids, avoiding the formation of adipose tissue.

While the process is positive, since it leads to the consumption of fats circulating (with reduction of triglycerides), the other is negative because the acetyl-coenzyme A is critical in the production of energy. The part used is the peel of the fruit.

Grows spontaneously in tropical climate areas of southern India, Indochina, Cambodia and the Philippines, the Garcinia cambogia (whose synonyms are known Citrin (TM), Citrimax (TM) - Names foreigners Engl. - Gamboge, Cambodia ) produces opposite leaves, solitary flowers and large yellowish fruits (berries) in the shape of pumpkins, salty taste astringent, provided with tough skin and contain large seeds enclosed in a pulposus aril.

The hydroxy citrate content in the skin of the fruit of Garcinia cambogia, acts on the liver and in other districts (adipose tissue, small intestine, etc..) Reducing the production of cholesterol and triglycerides up to 27%) from sugars.
This leads to a reduction in the accumulation of body fat also, having available a large amount of energy derived from the complete demolition of the sugars through the citric acid cycle, does not feel the need to ingest additional food decreased sense of ’appetite.

The mechanism of action of the hydroxycitrate, described below in detail, is shown in the diagram on the back. The final demolition of sugars, proteins and fats ingested occurs in the mitochondria via the citric acid cycle (Krebs cycle) with energy production through the respiratory chain directly linked to this.
When the ingestion of food, in particular sugars, is in excess, a portion of the citrate (product key to the operation of the Krebs cycle) comes out in the cytoplasm and here, by the enzyme citratoliasi, gives origin with subsequent steps to fatty acids, cholesterol and consequently storage of excess energy in the form of fat, which is deposited in the adipose tissue.

The hydroxycitrate strongly limits activity of the enzyme citrate lyase therefore blocks this process drastically storage in the form of fat instead favoring the complete demolition of the food with the production of energy, consequently gives the sense of satiety.
