Health Notes

Hydroxycitric Acid

Hydroxycitric Acid
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Obesity
Dose: Refer to label instructions
HCA may aid in weight loss by suppressing appetite and by reducing the conversion of carbohydrates into stored fat.(more)
Obesity
Dose: Refer to label instructions(-)-Hydroxycitric acid (HCA), extracted from the rind of the Garcinia cambogia fruit grown in Southeast Asia, has a chemical composition similar to that of citric acid (the primary acid in oranges and other citrus fruits). Preliminary studies in animals suggest that HCA may be a useful weight-loss aid.1, 2 HCA has been demonstrated in the laboratory (but not yet in clinical trials with people) to reduce the conversion of carbohydrates into stored fat by inhibiting certain enzyme processes.3, 4 Animal research indicates that HCA suppresses appetite and induces weight loss.5, 6, 7, 8 However, a double-blind trial found that people who took 1,500 mg per day of HCA while eating a low-calorie diet for 12 weeks lost no more weight than those taking a placebo.9 A double-blind trial of Garcinia cambogia (2.4 grams of dry extract, containing 50% hydroxycitric acid) found that the extract did not increase energy expenditure; it was therefore concluded that this extract showed little potential for the treatment of obesity at this amount.10 Nonetheless, another double-blind trial found that using the same amount of Garciniacambogia extract significantly improved the results of a weight-loss diet, even though the amount of food intake was not affected.11

          Comments about HNS Healthy Natural Systems® Garcinia Cambogia Chews:

          So I have been reading about Garcinia Cambogia for a couple years now. After doing a lot of reading and talking to my doctor her advice was do not get any that has calcium in it. I would further add to that do not drink any milk product while taking it either. Because it did not seam as effective when I did have a bowl of cerial.

          I have been taking this now for about 6 weeks or more. I have lost over 30# in that time and the only thing I have changed in my diet was just these chews. The first day I thought my tummy was going to explode because I felt so over full it was insane. I did not even eat for 24 hours after that. Now I am not over eating at all. I eat a ton less food that I was when I wasnt using this product. It did make me feel full. I only eat 1-2 meals a day now. If we go out to eat most of it comes home with me in a to go box.

          I also bought my brother these as well to try. He has a non stop hunger always did. He said he has to take 3 a day to keep from over eating. He is also loosing weight.

          As I stated do not use or drink milk with this product. As doing so may make it not work as well or at all.

          No I do not take it every day as I do not have that hunger feeling as much but I take it every other day or two. I am still loosing weight in the 1-3# a week ratio.

            The local GNC store's clerk suggested this product to me. Her Mother and her both use it. The flavor has been changed from last year. I lost half of a weight gain of almost 20 lbs. It doesn't prevent anyone from eating a healthy meal. I was told that it increased metabolism, and, even heart rate. I eat healthy anyway. The result is indisputable, because I was headed up from no daily walk with my Dad. Since, exercise is necessary for one's stamina and heart, I will returning to biking, too. (My Dad does not take this chew.) From a caregiver.

            I must have some kinda appetite because this does absolutely nothing to control it. I'm still just as hungry as I was before I had it. Bottom line it does not work. its just horrible tasting candy. for so much money. Definitely will not be buying this again.

                I have been taking garcinia cambogia for over a year you should take these 30 minutes to one hour before a meal. I don't believe they specifically make you lose weight however the ingredients will significantly improve your weight loss results. I recommend!!

Can any current users advise the best way to take them for the best results? For example with a meal, before or after a meal, with water. Anyones assistance would be grately appreciated.
