Garcinia from Cambodia is a plant native to Southeast Asia that has been used for centuries by traditional herbalists. Garcinia's main bioactive constituent, hydroxycitric acid (HCA), has been extensively studied for its effects on citrate lyase, which is the main enzyme responsible for cellular synthesis of fatty acids. Scientific studies indicate that in the presence of HCA, cells produce fewer fatty acids from carbohydrates.
NOW Garcinia is standardized to 50% of HCA and tested to ensure 500 mg of HCA per tablet.
