Supports a healthy body weight Promotes a healthy metabolism Promotes healthy serotonin and cortisol levels Jump start your metabolism to put you on the path to fitness with the dual-action dietary support of Swanson Superior Herbs Garcinia Cambogia. Native to Indonesia and grown throughout India and Southeast Asia, Garcinia cambogia (also known as tamarind) is a pumpkin- shaped fruit that has long been used in curries and other traditional Asian foods to make them more filling. Now it's gaining worldwide acclaim as a fat-buster because of the unique properties of a compound known as hydroxycitric acid (HCA) found in the rind of the fruit. What makes HCA so helpful for weight management is that it supports the process of making their calories available as glycogen to fuel your muscles when you exercise. The net effect is to promote a healthy change in body composition by encouraging lean muscle development over fat storage, but that's not all. Garcinia cambogia also helps address stress-related appetite issues by supporting healthy serotonin and cortisol levels.
