Growing Garcinia (Tamarind Plant)

The tamarind plant produces a fruit that’s widely used for many things all over the world. It’s used for cosmetic purposes, used in condiments and even in the medical industry.

Recently, Garcinia Cambogia has been getting lots of attention and has hit mainstream news shows, talk shows and leading medical conferences and studies. Now the top selling diet product on Amazon.com, there appears to be no end in sight for the demand of this product, which could greatly improve the food security for Indonesia since the plant it comes from is native to Indonesia.

It contains hydroxycitric acid, which is the main and most important ingredient found in Garcinia Cambogia Extract. This extract is quickly becoming the most popular and most effective weight loss supplement that’s hard for stores and sites like AlivebyNature.com that sell Garcinia Cambogia to keep in stock.

From studies, it’s been proven to reduce appetite, burn fat and even treat some types of illnesses. Medical professionals who study and research traditional medicine have found that it can often help with many things, such as:

  • Constipation
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Fever
  • Tumors
  • High cholesterol
  • Stomach ulcers

With its popularity on the rise, it would make sense to focus a decent amount of agricultural production on tamarind. The question that remains is how to increase that production, while also ensuring natural resources are protected and nourished.
