Garcinia Cambogia vs. Raspberry Ketone for Weight Loss

In today’s time, the market is full of miracle drugs and supplements with claims of helping you drop weight before you know it. While not all have been subjected to research enough to have supportive evidence in favour of them, we are going to talk about two most used components in a fat burner.

What is Garcinia cambogia?

It is a tropical fruit popular for aiding in weight loss. Studies suggest that it controls the appetite, could play a role in keeping blood sugar and cholesterol under control. The active ingredient in the fruit’s rind, known as Hydroxycitric acid (HCA) is the main fat burning properties. It is said to block the activity of citrate lyase which is an enzyme that takes part during fat synthesis. Additionally, HCA also increases the levels of serotonin in the brain, which makes you feel less hungry and thereby, reducing hunger pangs.

What are Raspberry ketones?

Their function appears to increase the production of adiponection, a protein that helps brain upregulate body’s metabolism thereby inducing fat oxidation.

Which works best?

Going by the studies, both when used as a part of a supplement, work. The raspberry ketones help increase the metabolism and burn fat, ultimately. While, Garcinia cambogia helps suppress the appetite and reduce the instances of taking in more calories. With a combined effort of eating less, eating healthy and working out regularly, the results appear good.  For some who are stuck at a plateau, this works as the push in the right direction that was much needed.

It is not just one thing that will help achieve fat loss, whether it is a singular habit change, change in the food habits alone or just popping any one particular supplement in the hope that it will burn away all that fat. Nevertheless, using both these fat burning compounds together does have a positive effect on the way metabolism works, since both the components work synergistically albeit, on different pathways but ultimately helping you inch towards the same goal.
