This little fruit is similar to a pumpkin. It is popularly used as a weight-loss supplement. The studies have shown that hydroxycitric acid (HCA) is an acid component that is found in the grind of the fruit. It has anti-obesity effects that produce a reduction of the consumption of foods and accumulation of body fat by regulating the serotonin levels which are related to satiety.
It also enhance the oxidation of fats and reduces the lipogenesis. HCA is a powerful inhibitor of adenosine triphosphate-citrate liase, which is a catalyst for the process of conversion of citrate to acetyl-coenzyme A, which plays a key role in the synthesis of fatty acids, cholesterol, and triglycerides.
