Garcinia cambogia is an all-natural, non-stimulating, clinically studied fruit extract that has been shown to support natural weight management without stimulating the central nervous system. The best researched formulation of this natural product is Super Citrimax Plus which contains the following ingredients:
- Garcinia cambogia extract, (standardized for hydroxycitric acid, or HCA) which influences appetite and energy levels naturally by redirecting calories from fat production toward increasing glycogen production and storage. In addition, HCA inhibits the pathway of fatty acid biosynthesis and promotes healthy blood lipid levels.*
- Chromium polynicotinate, which enhances the effectiveness of HCA. Chromium inhibits the synthesis of new fat from carbohydrates, thus freeing the mitochondria to burn already stored fat. This mineral is also important for endocrine activation and may potentially promote Glucose Tolerance Factor activity, helping to maintain healthy glucose metabolism and supporting body composition.*
- Gymnema sylvestre, which supports pancreas function and healthy glucose metabolism. Studies reported that this extract is supportive of enzyme activity for glucose utilization and helps moderate glucose uptake into the intestines. Furthermore, Gymnema also has the potential to support healthy lipid and triglyceride metabolism.*
A recent randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial conducted by researchers at Georgetown University Medical Center and Creighton University School of Pharmacy, examined the effects of the Super CitriMax Plus formula on various aspects of body composition. The results indicated support for lean body composition, healthy serotonin levels, and improved body mass index. This concentrated formula also increased output of urinary fat metabolites, indicating increased fatty degradation. In addition, it decreased serum leptin levels, improving signals that moderate food intake in the brain. Researchers of the University of California, Berkeley, have recently confirmed that HCA is absorbed and retained by overweight subjects. At Creighton University, Super CitriMax Plus increased the release and availability of serotonin in brain tissue. Chromium polynicotinate supports healthy weight in combination with exercise for overweight females, as indicated by a study at the University of Texas, Austin. In a separate randomized placebo controlled trial, chromium polynicotinate promoted healthy body composition overweight women.
