Garcinia Cambogia is one of hundreds of garcinia varieties many of which are used as food and flavoring in tropical countries such as India and Indonesia. A relative of this plant called Mangosteen or purple garcinia is also viewed as a “health food,” but with different properties. Garcinia Cambogia’s claim to fame is its ability to suppress your appetite and to lower your LDL cholesterol (the bad stuff). While you can eat the fruit (if available), the concentrated extract has proven most effective for weight loss.
