HCA in Tamarind an anti-obesity agent!!!

Most weight loss specialists don’t know about following fact
For centuries people in Indonesia, Asia, and Africa have used the Malabar tamarind to make food more filling. It works with your body to reduce appetite and shed fat, safely and naturally. The latest research by Francis et al confirms its hunger suppressing power. These Geneticists discovered that its active ingredient, hydroxycitric acid (HCA), actually switches on the genes that accelerate the breakdown of fat. It also switches off the genes that make you fatter. Researchers Rink et al took fat tissue from obese women and exposed it to HCA for two weeks. What they found HCA activated genes within fat cells that secrete several key compounds, one that breaks down fat and another that “starves” your fat cells of oxygen.
HCA also activate “leptin” which signals one’s brain that he has eaten enough. This means that one is shedding the pounds and feeling full without harming his body or altering its nutritional balance.
