Hydroxycitric Acid for Weight Control
Why Do Dieters Use It?*
Some dieters say that hydroxycitric acid helps promote fat loss.
What Do the Advocates Say?*
The promise of (-)-Hydroxycitric acid (HCA) is based on animal studies that suggest it inhibits fat synthesis and perhaps suppresses appetite. Human studies have not been consistent, however, with one reporting no benefits while another reported improved results when combined with a weight-loss diet.
