HCA has been demonstrated to reduce the conversion of carbohydrates into stored fat by inhibiting certain enzyme processes.

  • 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 thatHCAreduces body weight andBMI, 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
