Super CitriMax® PubMed. Int J Obes Relat Metab Disord. 2002 Jun;26(6):870-2. The effect of (-)-hydroxycitrate on energy intake and satiety in overweight humans. Westerterp-Plantenga MS, Kovacs EM>. Abstract OBJECTIVE: Assessment of the effects of 2 weeks of daily administration of HCA on energy intake and satiety in overweight men and women. DESIGN: A 6-week randomized placebo-controlled single-blinded cross-over trial. SUBJECTS: consumed three times daily for 2 weeks 100 ml tomato juice (placebo) and, separated by a 2 week wash-out period, 100 ml tomato juice with 300 mg HCA.Subjects: Twelve males and 12 females (body mass index 27.5+/-2.0 kg/m(2); age 37+/-10 y). MEASUREMENTS: After 2 weeks, 24 h energy intake (EI), appetite profile, hedonics, mood and possible change in dietary restraint were assessed in the laboratory restaurant. Prevention of degradation and bio-availability was documented. RESULTS: Twenty-four-hour EI was decreased by 15-30% (P<0.05) with HCA treatment compared to placebo, without changes in the appetite profile, dietary restraint, mood, taste perception and hedonics, while body weight tended to decrease (P=0.1). CONCLUSION: HCA treatment reduced 24 h EI in humans while satiety was sustained. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12037659 Read More

Super CitriMax® PubMed. 2004 May; 6(3):171-80. Effects of a natural extract of (-)-hydroxycitric acid (HCA-SX) and a combination of HCA-SX plus niacin-bound chromium and Gymnema sylvestre extract on weight loss. Preuss HG1, Bagchi D, Bagchi M,Rao CV,Dey DK, Satyanarayana S. Abstract AIM: The efficacy of optimal doses of highly bioavailable (-)-hydroxycitric acid (HCA-SX) alone and in combination with niacin-bound chromium (NBC) and a standardized Gymnema sylvestre extract (GSE) on weight loss in moderately obese subjects was evaluated by monitoring changes in body weight, body mass index (BMI), appetite, lipid profiles, serum leptin and excretion of urinary fat metabolites. HCA-SX has been shown to reduce appetite, inhibit fat synthesis and decrease body weight without stimulating the central nervous system. NBC has demonstrated its ability to maintain healthy insulin levels, while GSE has been shown to regulate weight loss and blood sugar levels. METHODS: A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled human study was conducted in Elluru, India for 8 weeks in 60 moderately obese subjects (ages 21-50, BMI >26 kg/m(2)). Subjects were randomly divided into three groups. Group A was administered HCA-SX 4667 mg, group B was administered a combination of HCA-SX 4667 mg, NBC 4 mg and GSE 400 mg, while group C […] Read More

Super CitriMax® PubMed. Int J Clin Pharmacol Res. 2005;25(3):133-44. Efficacy of a novel calcium/potassium salt of (-)-hydroxycitric acid in weight control. Preuss HG, Garis RI, Bramble JD, Bagchi D,Bagchi M, Rao CV, Satyanarayana S Abstract The weight-loss efficacy of a novel, water-soluble, calcium-potassium salt of (-)-hydroxycitric acid (HCA-SX) was re-examined in 90 obese subjects (BMI: 30-50.8 kg/m2). We combined data from two previously reported randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical studies in order to achieve a better statistical evaluation based on a larger population. This re-examination of data also allowed us to reflect more intensely on various aspects of weight loss studies. Subjects were randomly divided into three groups: group A received a daily dose of HCA-SX 4, 667 mg (providing 2,800 mg HCA per day); group B was given a daily dose of a combination of HCA-SX 4,667 mg, niacin-bound chromium (NBC) 4 mg (providing 400 microg elemental chromium), and Gymnema sylvestre extract (GSE) 400 mg (providing 100 mg gymnemic acid); and group C received a placebo in three equally divided doses 30-60 min before each meal. All subjects were provided a 2,000 kcal diet/day and participated in a supervised walking program for 30 min/day, 5 days/week. Eighty-two subjects completed the […] Read More

Super CitriMax® Nutrition Research. January 2004 Volume 24, Issue 1, Pages 45–58 Efficacy of a novel, natural extract of (–)-hydroxycitric acid (HCA-SX) and a combination of HCA-SX, niacin-bound chromium and Gymnema sylvestre extract in weight management in human volunteers: a pilot study Harry G Pruess Abstract In this pilot study, the efficacy of a novel, natural extract of a highly bioavailable, calcium-potassium salt of (–)-hydroxycitric acid (HCA-SX) alone and in combination with a niacin-bound chromium (NBC) and Gymnema sylvestra extract (GSE) was evaluated for weight loss in moderately obese subjects by monitoring changes in body weight, body mass index (BMI), appetite, lipid profiles, serum leptin and serotonin levels, and enhanced excretion of urinary fat metabolites. Garcinia cambogia-derived (–)-hydroxycitric acid (HCA) has been shown to reduce appetite, inhibit fat synthesis and decrease body weight without stimulating the central nervous system. NBC has shown the ability to restore insulin function, metabolize fat, turn protein into muscle, and convert sugar into energy, which plays a role in appetite regulation and facilitates weight loss. Gymnema sylvestre is a traditional herb that helps to promote weight loss possibly through its ability to reduce cravings for sweets and control blood sugar levels. A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled […] Read More
