HISTORICAL USES & PROPERTIES OF KODAMPULI - Garcinia cambogia


Kodampuli (Garcinia cambogia) is a relative new-comer to the ranks of Western herbalism, but has been used for thousands of years in the Orient as a food supplement. It is used as an appetite suppressant and to inhibit the absorption and synthesis of fat, cholesterol and triglycerides. In other words, it is a dietary aid.

KODAMPULI METHOD OF ACTION
The active principle in Kodampuli is (-)-hydroxycitric acid(or HCA). On a dry weight basis, HCA constitutes from 20-30% of the berry. Kodampuli works in two ways
1. by suppressing appetite
2. by inhibiting lipid synthesis
This latter mechanism is based on the theory that inhibition of lipid biosynthesis or enhance lipid metabolism interfere with mechanisms that produce and maintain obesity.

SAFETY FACTORS & TOXICITY
Toxicity tests have shown that Kodampuli extract is nontoxic and safe. Unknown decades of use by Asians has also yielded no known side effects. Research findings suggest that Kodampuli does not interfere with energy production, nutrient metabolism, prostaglandin synthesis, or any other essential biochemical process.
