Garcinia Cambogia works by raising the natural serotonin levels of your brain, the natural chemical in our bodies that regulates mood. When a person eats carbohydrates, amino acids are pulled out of your blood to break down the sugar. During this process, room is created in the brain for chemicals used to create neurotransmitters like serotonin. In essence, the brain eventually knows that eating carbohydrates will stimulate these neurotransmitters and provide a feeling of happiness for the moment. This can often lead to the binge eating of carbohydrates. Garcinia Cambogia naturally enhances serotonin without the need of eating carbohydrates allowing you to feel happy and satisfied.
