Viridian HCA contains Hydroxycitric acid extracted from the berry Garcinia cambogia providing 250mg of HCA per capsule.
Hydroxycitrate is a stable form of Hydroxycitric Acid which is derived from the Garcinia cambogia fruit.
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 (the primary acid in citrus fruits).
WEIGHT LOSS - Preliminary research suggests that HCA may be a useful weight loss aid. HCA has been demonstrated to reduce the conversion of carbohydrates into stored fat by inhibiting certain enzyme processes. 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. Further research indicates that HCA 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. One study examined the effects of Hydroxycitrate (HCA) ingestion on fat oxidation during moderate intensity exercis
