Key Health Benefits

  • Clinically validated for its potential use in weight management

Mechanism of Action

It is reported that HCA reduces weight gain by inhibiting ATP citrate lyase, an enzyme which catalyzes the extra-mitochondrial cleavage of citrate to oxaloacetate and acetyl coenzyme A (acetyl-CoA), a building block of fatty acid synthesis.

By reducing the levels of acetyl-CoA and subsequently malonyl-CoA pool HCA limits the synthesis of fats and cholesterol.

The overall impact of this results in

  • Suppression of food intake
  • Decrease in de novo lipogenesis
  • Increase in oxidation of  fatty acids
  • Reduction in glucose intake rates in tissues.
