Blocks Carbohydrate Conversion
Hydroxycitrate (Super CitriMax, HCA) is a substance isolated from the fruit of the Malabar tamarind (Garcinia cambogia). Some studies suggest that HCA may inhibit conversion of carbohydrates into fat. (2-4) It also may suppresses appetite.(1-2)
Use HCA with carbohydrate-containing meals. Great support formula for a low calorie diet.
Super CitriMax contains standardized levels of hydroxycitric acid (HCA), which has been clinically shown to suppress appetite and inhibit fat production, without stimulating the central nervous system.
Super CitriMax inhibits the conversion of carbohydrates into fat and promotes an increase in the formation of stored energy. This also signals the brain to turn off hunger signals. To help regulate sugar levels and cravings, this formula also contains chromate, a very high quality chromium supplement that has been shown to be 18 times more active than other forms of chromium commonly found in supplements.
Hydroxycitric acid may help:
- Curb appetite (1-2)
- Decrease lipogenesis (fat storage) (2-4)
- Maintain healthy cholesterol levels (2)
Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement, adults take two (2) capsules, three (3) times daily, one (1) hour before mealtime, or as directed by a health care professional. Store in a cool, dry place and away from direct light.
Keep out of reach of children.
