Herbal Magic’s Garcinia Extract has been formulated to help temporarily increase satiety (fullness) to support weight management. This formula contains the key ingredient Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA), which has been shown to reduce appetite, inhibit fat synthesis and decrease body weight without stimulating the central nervous system.

  • Core program product for clients aged 19+ in the Motivation and Determination stages of their weight loss programs.

Garcinia Extract helps reduce appetite by sending satiety (fullness) signals to the brain, helps control emotional eating, and helps inhibit your body’s ability to convert sugar into fat.

GENERAL INFORMATION
Herbal Magic’s Garcinia Extract has been formulated to help to temporarily increase satiety to support weight management. This formula contains the key ingredient Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA), which has been shown to reduce appetite, inhibit fat synthesis and decrease body weight without stimulating the central nervous system.

RECOMMENDED USES
Primary Use: Helps to temporarily increase feelings of fullness.

MECHANISM OF ACTION
Research Suggests
(-)-Hydroxycitric acid (HCA)
(-)-Hydroxycitric acid (HCA) is a principle component of the dried fruit rind of Garcinia cambogia, a plant native to Southeastern Asia. The dried rind has been used for centuries throughout Southeast Asia as a food preservative, flavouring agent and digestive aid.1

Research shows that Garcinia extract helps control satiety and support weight-loss by modulating serotonin levels and fat synthesis to suppress appetite. HCA helps stimulate serotonin release and inhibit reuptake in the body. Serotonin (5-HT) is a neurotransmitter involved in several behavioural functions within the body, including mood and appetite control. Studies show that serotonin impacts eating behavior and body weight; increased circulating levels are associated with lower food intake, reduced weight gain and increased energy expenditure.2,3,4 Therefore, increased serotonin levels can help address many of the emotional issues overweight people face.5,6

HCA has also been shown to be a competitive inhibitor of ATP-citrate lyase, a key player in the conversion of citrate into acetyl coenzyme A, a primary building block for fatty acid synthesis. Inhibiting ATP-citrate lyase directs carbohydrates away from fat synthesis and towards storing energy in the form of glycogen. Increased glycogen levels send satiety signals to the brain, ultimately leading to reduced food intake.7

A 2 week study showed that 500 mg of SuperCitriMax® decreases calorie intake and sustains satiety. In a randomized, placebo-controlled, crossover study, 24 overweight men and women consumed SuperCitriMax® an hour before lunch and dinner and two hours after dinner for two weeks. SuperCitriMax® significantly decreased 24-hour energy intake by 25% and snacking by 40% compared to placebo. SuperCitriMax® also decreased calorie intake at every meal, while satiety was sustained, and demonstrated a reduction in body weight of 1.1 pounds.8

Another randomized placebo-controlled study also demonstrated that 1500 mg of Garcinia Extract daily taken before meals for eight weeks resulted in 215% greater weight loss than placebo, and a significant reduction was in cholesterol and triglyceride levels was also observed.9

RECOMMENDED DOSAGE
For Ages 18+: 1 cap 3x/day before meals, a few hours before or after other medications.
