Garcinia is a genus of flowering plants in
the family Clusiaceae native to Asia, America,
Australia, tropical and southern Africa, and
The number of species is disputed; the Kew
Gardens recognize up to 400.
Commonly, the plants in this genus are called
sap trees, mangosteens, garcinias, or monkey
Many species are threatened by habitat destruction.
The fruits are a food source for several animals,
such as the archduke butterflies of tropical
eastern Asia which relish the sap of overripe
Garcinia species are evergreen trees and shrubs.
The fruit is a berry with fleshy endocarp,
which in several species is delicious.
The fruit of most species of Garcinia are
eaten locally; some species’ fruits are highly
esteemed in one region, but unknown just a
few hundred kilometers away.
The best-known species is Garcinia mangostana,
which is now cultivated throughout Southeast
Asia and other tropical countries, having
become established in the late 20th century.
Less well-known, but still of international
importance, are kandis with small round red
fruits with subacid taste and melting flesh,
the lemon drop mangosteen with yellow fruit
that looks like a wrinkled lemon, and the
thin-skinned orange button mangosteen.
In addition, mangosteen rind extract is used

Garcinia gummi-gutta yields a spice widely
used in South Asia, in particular in Kerala,
where it is called kodumpulli.
Most species in Garcinia are known for their
gum resin, brownish-yellow from xanthonoids
such as mangosteen, and used as purgative
or cathartic, but most frequently � at least
in former times � as a pigment.
The color term gamboge refers to this pigment.
Extracts of the exocarp of certain species
are often contained in appetite suppressants,
but their effectiveness at normal consumption
levels is unproven, while at least one case
of severe acidosis caused by long-term consumption
of such products has been documented.
Hydroxycitric acid, a chemical compound found
in mangosteen rind, is of high interest for
diets in weight loss programs.
Bitter kola seeds are used in folk medicine.

in western Africa, freshening the breath and

Let’s now have a closer look at the well known
Garcinia, which mainly dominates our markets
Garcinia gummi-gutta is a tropical species
of Garcinia, native to Indonesia.
Common names include Garcinia Cambogia (a
former scientific name), as well as brindleberry,
Malabar tamarind, and kudam puli.
The fruit looks like a small pumpkin and is
green to pale yellow in color.
Although it has received considerable media
attention purporting its effects on weight
loss, there is liver toxicity associated with
commercial preparations of the fruit extract,
with clinical evidence indicating it has no
significant effect on weight loss.
Garcinia gummi-gutta is grown for its fruit
in Southeast Asia, coastal Karnataka, in India,
and west and central Africa.
It thrives in most moist forests.
Garcinia gummi-gutta is one of several closely
related Garcinia species from the plant family
With thin skin and deep vertical lobes, the
fruit of Garcinia gummi-gutta and related
species range from about the size of an orange
to that of a grapefruit.
Garcinia gummi-gutta looks more like a small
yellowish, greenish, or sometimes reddish
The color can vary considerably.
When the rinds are dried and cured in preparation
for storage and extraction, they are dark
brown or black in color.
Along the west coast of South India, Garcinia
gummi-gutta is popularly termed “Malabar tamarind”,
and shares culinary uses with the tamarind.
The latter is a small and the former a quite
large evergreen tree.
Garcinia gummi-gutta is also called goraka
or, in some areas, simply souring fruit.
Although few high-quality studies have been
done to define the composition of the fruit,
its phytochemical content includes hydroxycitric
acid which is extractable and developed as
a dietary supplement.
Other compounds identified in the fruit include
the polyphenols, luteolin, and kaempferol.
In late 2012, a United States celebrity doctor,
Doctor Oz, promoted Garcinia cambogia extract
as “an exciting breakthrough in natural weight
loss”.Doctor Oz’s endorsements of dietary
supplements having no or little scientific
evidence of efficacy have often led to a substantial
increase in consumer purchases of the promoted

purporting impact on weight loss, the evidence
Cambogia supports no clear effect, while gastrointestinal
adverse events were two-fold more common over
the placebo in a 2011 meta-analysis, indicating
the extract may be unsafe for human consumption.
Adverse events associated with the use of
such supplements (“side effects”) � especially,
liver toxicity, as well as gastrointestinal
issues � led to one preparation being withdrawn
from the market.
As an adverse effect, it is known that Hydroxycitric
acid can cause dry mouth, nausea, gastrointestinal
discomfort, and headaches.
There is also a potential for Garcinia Cambogia
to interfere with prescription medications,
including those used to treat people with
diabetes, asthma, and clotting disorders.
For culinary use, we would note that when
the fruit is sun-dried for several days, it
becomes black with a shriveled body.
Garcinia gummi-gutta is used in cooking, including
in the preparation of curries.
The fruit rind and extracts of Garcinia species
are called for in many traditional recipes,
and various species of Garcinia are used similarly
in food preparation in Assam, in India, Thailand,
Malaysia, Burma, and other Southeast Asian

are said to activate digestion.

southern Thai variant of kaeng som, a sour
curry as well.
