There are hundreds of weight products in the market today. Most of the products promise amazing results with little or no effort at all. However, this is next to impossible as for you to actually lose weight you will have to adopt healthy living habits. Nevertheless, there are some good products that have been effective in weight loss over the past couple of months. The two most successful products are: Garcinia cambogia extract and African mango extract.
African mango extract
Scientifically known as Irvingiagabonensis, the African mango has been in use for many years as a fruit. It is found in many West African countries.
Though the locals eat the fleshy body of the fruit, it is the seed that is used in production of the weight loss extracts. The fat burning soluble fibre content of the seed is what makes it so attractive for weight loss.
The extract is available in capsule, liquid or powder form. Capsule is preferred by most people. For effective weight loss, you need to take 150mg of the capsules twice a day. The fibre in the capsule will help you eat less food. Furthermore, it will lead to lower body fat, decreased LDL cholesterol levels, modulated blood glucose levels and decreased fat cells growth. This leads to a natural loss of weight.
This is a small fruit found in most parts of South Asia. When dried, its rind is extracted for use in weight loss products. Unlike African mango extracts that work through its soluble fibre to reduce weight, Garcinia cambogia contains an active component called HCA. This component increases the body’s metabolism leading to fat breakdown to compensate for the high energy requirements.
HCA also works to make you feel less hungry thus you eat less and fewer times. It also releases serotonin, a feel good hormone which will stops you from feeding when you are emotional and suppresses stress hormones that inhibit burning of fat.
Other than making you lose weight, these products have some similarities as well as differences. One of the similarities is that they are both natural extracts and supplements with no artificial additions. They also complement the bodyworking through its mechanisms to burn fat or block fat formation; whereas Africa mango extract blocks formation of fat and Garcinia cambogia works to burn fat that is stored in the body.
Another similarity is that the two have to be taken 20-30 minutes before meals. They have also been medically and scientifically tested with no side effects. Nevertheless, people with cardiovascular and blood sugar complications should contact their doctor before starting on a weight loss program.
All in all, these two supplements are great for weight loss. However, Garcinia cambogia has been seen to be more effective in weight loss with consumers losing up to 10 pounds in a month. Garcinia is also known to be cost effective. It is therefore a number one choice when it comes to weight loss.
