Nature’s preservative Garcinia Cambogia is a mangosteen-like citrussy fruit that has grown naturally in the spice gardens of Ceylon from ancient times. The carefully harvested rind of the fruit is sun-dried naturally and milled to make this powder. Ceylonese Garcinia is a sour spice that is a natural meat tenderizer and preservative. A popular Ceylonese fish curry ‘Ambul Thiyal’ is made with Garcinia Cambogia. It was the way our ancestors cured the fish to preserve it, making it a picnic favorite to this day! It works well to cure any meat or vegetable to enhance its keeping properties.
Garcinia Cambogia gives seafood a tangy taste and can also be used in place of Tamarind in curries/soups and stews or used for its citrusy/ acidic flavor in smoothies. The dark color of the powder and the tangy taste also makes it a great ingredient for meat rubs. Use in powder form for cooking or mixed in small daily doses (1/8 tsp – 0.6ml) as a hot herbal tea. Allow the powder to settle and drink the infused clear tea discarding the sediment at the bottom.
Ceylon Garcinia Cambogia has a smoky, citrusy, tangy taste.

Advice when spices are used as a supplement: Most of these ancient spices have flavored our foods for centuries and are safe to consume regularly when used as a spice; a small proportion of ingredient when making foods. It would be very hard to overdose on a spice when it is a minute part of a food recipe. With recent research and articles highlighting the medicinal properties and health attributes of these spices, rather than just consuming it straight away as a supplement, it is always advisable to consult a nutritionist or doctor, if using this product as an ongoing treatment for a health issue. A health care provider may recommend a specific dosage depending on a person’s age, weight, and medical condition.
