Also known as Malabar tamarind, this small, pumpkin-shaped fruit has been used as a food in India and Sri Lanka for centuries, lending its sour, fruity tang to yogurt, sauces and other recipes. Herbal traditions use Garcinia cambogia as a treatment for insomnia, inflammatory bowel disease and rheumatism. In recent years, the active ingredient in the rind of the Malabar tamarind fruit, known as hydroxycitric acid, HCA, has shown promising scientific evidence as a weight loss supplement.
