Garcinia and Its Physiology
The active ingredient, hydroxycitric acid(HCA), is extracted from the rind of the fruit as a substance to promote weight loss. Studies have shown that HCA
decreases the activity of an essential enzyme in metabolism of fat. The conversion of carbohydrates into fat requires
an enzyme called citrate lyase. HCA temporarily reduces the action of this enzyme, blocking the production of fatty acids
making less fat available for cellular storage.
Where is it found?
Hydroxycitric acid(HCA) is found in only a few plants, with one rich source being the rind of a little pumpkin-shaped fruit called Garcinia cambogia, which is native to Southeast Asia. This fruit (also called Malabar tamarind) is used
as a condiment in dishes such as curry.
Garcinia cambogia is the fruit of the garcinia indica tree also known as Brindle berry, grown in southern India. Hydroxycitric
acid (HCA), the active ingredient of garcinia cambogia, is synthesized from the rind of the cambogia fruit.
This product is often sold in weight loss supplements in various forms and under various brand names such as Brindleberry
Extract, HCA, and the standardised form which is marketed as Citrimax HCA is a substance which has been studied extensively
for more than two decades.
HCA also increases the ability of the liver and muscles to synthesize and store glycogen, thereby suppressing appetite.
Weight Loss Effects
Studies indicate that hydroxycitric acid(HCA) helps people, including problematic "plateau" dieters, lose weight. Plateau dieters find weight loss especially frustrating
because they do lose some weight, but reach a point at which they cannot lose more weight. In a 1995 Israeli study, HCA was
gien to eight subjects who had been on a standard calorie-restricted diet for two months and had stopped losing weight.
HCA also promotes stable weight loss - what you lose stays off. In a 1994 Danish study, 28 subjects took 750 mg. of HCA and 125 of chromium for six weeks. Over this
time period, the subjects lost an average of 8.21 pounds (3.73 kg). The last two weeks of the study were conducted without the HCA.
During this period, there was further weight loss of 1.7 pounds (0.8 kg). No weight gain was seen.
