Hydroxycitric Acid in Weight Loss Supplements
Hydroxycitric acid (HCA), is a herbal extract found in many commercial weight-loss supplements. The chemical, distilled from Indian plants, supposedly suppresses the appetite and slows down the conversion of carbohydrates into fat.
HCA supplements are available in many forms, including tablets, capsules, powders, snack bars, and chewing gum.
Hydroxycitric Acid - No Significant Weight Reduction
In a double-blind study published in the 1998, issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association, researchers from Columbia University gave HCA supplements (1,500 milligrams each day) to 66 overweight patients. Another 69 patients took a daily placebo or dummy pill.
All of the subjects were on a high-fiber, low-calorie diet throughout the study.
Twelve weeks later, patients in both groups had lost weight, but researchers concluded that HCA failed to produce significant weight loss.
