Hydroxy Citric Acid (HCA or Citrin)

Definition: Found in the herb Garcinia cambogia, HCA is a form of citric acid which inhibits the ability of the liver to make fats from carbohydrates. When HCA is present, carbohydrates convert to glycogen rather than fat, ensuring more efficient energy reserves, stamina and weight control. The ability of HCA to augment weight loss without artificial stimulation is impressive.

Applications: Endurance, obesity, appetite suppressant and high cholesterol.

Recommendations: HCA is usually sold as citrin or in Garcinia cambogia supplements. Look for standardized products with guaranteed potency.
