Hydroxycitric acid (HCA) is a natural substance isolated from the fruit of the
Malabar Tamarind (Garcinia cambogia), a yellowish fruit that is about the size of
an orange, with a thin skin and, and deep furrows similar to an acorn squash. It is
native to Southern India where it is dried and used extensively in curries. HCA has
a chemical structure similar to that of citric acid

Key features of the HCA:
Weight loss
HCA has been demonstrated to reduce the conversion of
carbohydrates into stored fat by inhibiting certain enzyme
• HCA inhibits the enzyme ATP citrate lyase, playing a critical role in energy storage.
When calorie intake exceeds the body’s energy needs, the excess glucose is
converted into glycogen, which is stored in the liver and muscle for future
conversion. At this point, glucose from excessive calorie intake is converted into
acetyl coenzyme A via a metabolic pathway involving this enzyme and then into fat
molecules, which are stored in fat cells. HCA has been shown to bind to this enzyme
to reduce the production of acetyl Coenzyme A and also increase the ability of the
liver and muscles to synthesize and store glycogen.
Research conducted on 90 obese subjects at Georgetown University in Washington
concluded that at the end of 8 weeks, both body weight and body mass index (BMI)
decreased by 5.4%, low-density lipoprotein and triglycerides levels were reduced by 12.9%
and 6.9%, respectively, while high-density lipoprotein levels increased by 8.9%, serum leptin
levels decreased by 38%, serotonin levels increased by 44.5% and urinary excretion of fat
metabolites increased by 32-109%. No significant adverse effects were observed and the
results confirm that HCA reduces body weight and BMI, suppresses appetite, improves blood
lipid profiles, increases serum leptin and serotonin levels and increases fat oxidation more
than placebo.
• HCA also suppresses appetite and induces weight loss
Exercise Performance
Hydroxycitrate (HCA) ingestion may be effective because it promotes utilisation of fatty acid
as an energy source. HCA is a competitive inhibitor of the enzyme ATP: citrate lyase, thereby
increasing inhibition of lipogenesis in the body.
Dosage: 500mg of HCA three times per day (before each meal).
Known contraindications: HCA has not been linked to any adverse effects.
Interactions: At the time of writing, there were no well-known drug interactions with HCA
