Garcinia Cambogia, also known as Brindleberry and Hydroxycitric acid, contains a biologically active compound which is known to inhibit the synthesis of lipids and fatty acids and lower the formation of LDL and triglycerides.
Brindleberry has a rind rich in hydroxycitric acid, and is the primary source of this substance, according to the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, or BIDMC. Hydroxycitric acid is similar to the citric acid found in oranges, grapefruit and other citrus fruit. Some research supports the use of brindleberry and HCA for weight loss, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center.This recipe is a very popular dish in Sri Lanka.
