It is also used as a fat burner because of HCA Hydroxycitric acid which is an excellent weight loss food which is all natural.

Consuming it early morning is better after cleansing your systems. Soak a piece or two of the Brindleberry overnight and drink the water early morning on empty stomach.
Don’t be mistaken this is not kokum. Kokum is a deep purple fruit which is round and looks similar to Mangosteen and is known as Garcinia Indica. Whereas Garcinia Cambogia has ridges on the surface. Dried Garcinia Cambogia has a thick peel even when it is shriveled, it also gives the feel of ridges whereas Indicia has a plain texture with skinny peel which also lacks the complex and intense flavor imparted by Cambogia.
Some of the common names are as follows.
Garcinia Cambogia – Garcinia Gummi-gutta – Brindle Berry – Malabar Tamarind – Kudampuli (Pot Tamarind)
