Garcinia HCA
90 vegetarian capsules
Item Catalog Number:
01738

HCA (hydroxycitric acid) is a close relative of citric acid, the agent that gives citrus fruits their characteristic tart flavor. HCA occurs in Garcinia cambogia, a small fruit from southern India, where it has been used for centuries as a food preservative, flavoring agent, and digestive aid. HCA is a safe, natural supplement for weight management.1

When calorie intake exceeds the body’s energy needs, the excess glucose is converted into glycogen, which is stored in the liver and muscles for future conversion into energy. Weight gain occurs after the body’s capacity for glycogen storage is reached. At this point, glucose from excessive calorie intake is converted into acetyl coenzyme A via a metabolic pathway involving the enzyme ATP-citrate lyase and then into fat molecules, which are stored in fat cells. HCA is a competitive inhibitor of ATP citrate lyase, a key enzyme which facilitates the synthesis of fatty acids, cholesterol and triglycerides. HCA may reduce the synthesis of fatty acids in humans during a persistent excess of energy intake as carbohydrate.2

It has been suggested that HCA promotes weight loss by increasing serotonin levels, reducing hunger and appetite, and suppressing carbohydrate conversion into fat by inhibiting ATP-citrate lyase,2-9 thus regulating fat and related genes.10 HCA may also attenuate the increases in oxidative stress, and insulin resistance.11

This supplement should be taken in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular exercise program. Results may vary.

      Order 4 bottles. I followed the directions to the 'letter'. Half way thru the 4th and final bottle and had lost nothing, decided this was yet-again, another waste of time. One more useless weight-loss supplement.
      Thank goodness for L.E.'s great return policy.

          My wife and I used the Garcinia HCA for 2 months; 3 caps 45 mins. before all meals (label directions). We have also been exercising 6 days/week. And eating usual Vegetarian low sugar and fat diet. NO advantage over usual exercise and diet. Note: we even added 2 caps of Life Ext. Green Coffee with each dose of Garcinia HCA

              I choose this brand after a long research on the company. Since garcinia cambogia has become a media crazy I wanted to get a reliable one with a an ffordable price. After 5 days of taking I have to say that I don't feel as hungry as before and with my regular diet and my 3 day 30 min exercise I have lost 2 pounds. I can wait to see the results after a month! Fast shipping.

                I have been taking this product for over a month & have not lost anything. I am wondering if it has taken others this long. I don't want to give up!!!!! And, do you really have to take this before meals or at anytime when stomach is not full?

                      I bought this for me and my wife. I tried it first because she has a sensitive stomach. I have been taking this for almost three weeks twice a day and have lost 12# and almost 3" on my waist, without exercising or changing my food intake. Can't wait to see what happens when I workout. The only side effect I can see is, you go to the bathroom more often, as the fat has to go somewhere when it is being burned off. My wife is amazed with my results and is starting now that she see's there is no stomach upset.

                          I take two capsules each day. I do not crave sweets or carbs any more. I used to be a sweet addict. I don't eat sweets any more and bread occasionally. I walk 30 minutes every night, and eat healthy. I have lost 130 pounds since a year ago May. I weighed 286 lbs. I was trying to get surgery (bariactric) and my insurance turned me down. I am thankful I have this product to curve my cravings and keep my appetite under control.
