Hydroxycitric acid, aka HCA, is a substance isolated from the exotic fruit Garcinia Cambogia. HCA is a safe, natural supplement for fat loss and weight management. HCA works by inhibiting the Key enzyme (called citrate lyase) that synthesizes fatty acids, cholesterol and triglycerides in the body. HCA also acts as an appetite suppressant and helps control cravings. Due to its ability to both prevent body fat from being made while suppressing appetite, HCA has been dubbed a “Dual Action Fat Buster”.
Supplementation with 2800-3000 mg/day of HCA has been shown to result in the following beneficial effects after 8 weeks of use 1,2:
• Reduces body weight.
• Curbs appetite and food intake.
• Increases excretion of urinary fat metabolites (a biomarker of fat burning).
• Lowers after-meal insulin response (and thereby indirectly help the body burn fat throughout the day).
• Boosts fat burning during exercise and enhances glycogen synthesis in exercised muscle .
• Helps overcoming obesity-related complications, including exercise-related inflammation, oxidative stress, and insulin resistance .
The HCA-induced elevation in serotonin levels, also known as the "feel good hormone", is especially beneficial for those with carb/sugar cravings, and as an adjunct to low-carb diets 5-9.
Superior bioavailability of Lean Body Garcinia Cambogia /HCA Until recently, HCA products were in a form that was not well absorbed. Lean Body Garcinia Cambogia /HCA contains a novel calcium-potassium salt of HCA derived from Garcinia cambogia, called Super CitriMax (aka HCA-SX), which has superior bioavailability, especially when taken on an empty stomach 10.
No significant adverse effects have been reported with HCA supplementation 1,11. Super CitriMax is thus a safe, highly bio-available and effective way to stimulate fat loss and help with food craving control and weight management.
In contrast to stimulants like caffeine and ephedrine, which are often included in fat loss supplements, HCA doesn't cause any jitteriness or blood pressure elevations. It is thus also safe fat loss supplement to take for people with high blood pressure, and for those who dislike the jitteriness and tremor that stimulant-based supplements cause.

I'm normally a sceptic when it comes to taking any type of pill. I've always feared allergic reactions so I steered clear of any type of pill supplement. I saw these pill on a post in my weight loss support group and all I saw were good reviews from real people (people that I know and trust). Last Monday I started taking these pills and I've lost a total of 9.4lbs since then. My late night snacked has ceased!!! That was my only downfall to losing my remaining 75-80lbs. I'm almost in disbelief but it's real. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who's trying g to lose weight, especially those who struggle with bored eating or late night snacking. I'm very very satisfied with my results!
I have been taking this product now for 15 days and have noticed a loss in appetite and my craving. I also noticed I have been sleeping better! I ordered another 2 bottles as you are supposed to give it 2 months, in hopes I start seeing some weight and inches lost. I have tried another brand of Garcinia cambogia and had really bad acid reflux from it but I am not experiencing that with Labrada brand. Will post again in 6 weeks and give my final results!
This product works combined with working out & eating good. I love it! I'm so happy to finally find a supplement that works & is reasonably priced. I suffer with many health issues mainly fibromyalgia & can only work out in a heated therapy pool... I lost 5.2 pounds my first week & feel great from it!! Thank you for manufacturing a great product!!
I have (sort of) tried to lose weight in the past but found it difficult to get past the intense sugar cravings and the "Starving" feeling. I tried Garcinia Cambogia at the recommendation of the guy at The Vitamin Shoppe and absolutely love the results. Not only are the cravings gone, but I've steadily lost 16 lbs in the first 3 weeks. 255 to 239 lbs. I have to be careful with suppliments as I sometimes react to them, but this product has had NO side effects.
IM NOT FAT AND IM NOT SKINNY.. IDK.. I HATE THE WORD (DIET) IT TRULY SUCKS!! WHILE MY FOLKS CHOW DOWN THAT RASBERRY ED'S ICECREAM, I FEEL LIKE IM DYING INSIDE. WELL I WANT TO LOSE SOME INCHES OF MY STOMACH SO I COULD LOOK LIKE THEM MODELS OFF OF THE GQ MSG =) I JUST PURCHASED THIS PRODUCT AFTER WATCHING IT ON DR. OZ SHOW. IF DR. OZ SAYS ITS OKAY, THEM ITS OKAY!! LOOK AT HIS LONG RECORD OF SUCCESS. I HOPE TO LOSE SOME WEIGHT WITH OUT SIDE EFFECTS. THIS IS THE TOP PRODUCT ON SHELFS FOLKS AND IT WONT HURT YOUR POCKET.
I can't say enough about this product. I am loosing weight. Feeling better than ever. I need to lose a lot more. I am a believer. For all of you out there, try this it works. You will feel good about yourself. I am from California. Currently working in Arizona.
I bought these about three weeks ago at the Vitamin Shoppe and I must say I am pretty pleased. The snacking alone is a huge help for me...I haven't craved the greasy potatoe chips and sodas that I normally do...I haven't bought any either.If those items are eliminated from my daily, I know the weight loss will come. These pills also makes me eat less.
At first I was a skeptic but after reading so many positive reviews I figured why not give it a try. Besides what's the worst I'm out less then $20 bucks. I picked up my first bottle mid December 2013. I noticed right away I could no longer eat the portion size I was used to and my cravings for snacks were gone. I felt full longer. After the first week I dropped 2lbs with no exercise. The following week I dropped a little more. I did notice a little plattoe and fluxuation up and down a few pounds. But as of today I have been in it for 2.5 months taking them regularly and I have lost 14 lbs. Mainly with just smaller proportion sizes and trying to eat healthier but I do have a few cheats here and there. I just need about another inch off the waist and I can go down a pant size. I'm now a firm believer in this product and have gotten 3 of my friends hooked as well. I still have another 50 lbs to go. Thank you Labrada for providing this great product at a great price.
Hola mí comentario esta en español porque habemos muchos latinos que también estamos en la búsqueda re algo que nos ayude a perder peso. Yo tengo 2 senanas usando este producto y baje la cantidad de 10 libras así que ya comencé mi segunda botella. Ahora no fue que solo la pastilla trabajó sola. no asi no fue. Cambie mi alimentacion y no cimuda pesada después de las 6 de la tarde. Caminar 3 veces por semana y seguro que si. 3l fin de semana hice una trampita. Y el precio de estas son muy bueno!! Asi que a seguir adelante. Si se puede!! Lo recomiendo!
ok I know that 99% of people don't believe these testimonials but here's one more. I got the garcinia cambogia about a month ago and I was skeptical at first. After I started taking it though I was pleasantly surprised. It has only been a month of taking the supplement and I've already lost 5 Lbs~! I'm going to continue with this until I reach my goal!
I consider myself a pretty fit woman. My body fat % was around 16% when I went to the Dr. last. I exercise on a regular basis but I just wanted a little extra help. I saw Dr. Oz talk about this product so I was willing to give it a try. I am hooked! My stomach is flatter then ever before. I have been taking this everyday for 6 weeks now. That's about 3 bottles worth. Well worth the money!! High recommended
I had a very bad habit of eating ice cream while watching late night television. Now that I take 2 pills before each meal, dinner is usually around 8pm, my cravings have gone down a lot. I am falling asleep faster and definitely sleeping better. I am not sure if it's the supplement or the lack of ice cream. Either way I really like it., and have recommended this product to all my friends.
I was taking this product for 4 weeks, I didn't change my diet or exercise, to be honest, because I was lazy. I saw really minor results. So I decided to suck it up and really try. I started to eat better meals , for 2 weeks I have lost 6 pounds!!! Food really makes a difference. I hope to start exercising more and really see how much fat I can lose with this product! Very happy with the results so far.
I have a lot of weight to lose. I mean a lot! I was very discouraged at the beginning but I went to talk to a nutritionist and have a good plan in place. I have lost a significant amount of weight taking this product over 2 months now. Very happy with the results.
I just bought this product, and would like to give Labrada Nutrition a HIGH FIVE for not only making a great product but taking the time to do the research and provide it to me. I went through and found several of the studies listed on the product page. They all had compelling evidence on the advantages of Garcinia Cambogia. I can't wait to start taking this product. Thank you again Labrada for helping me understand.
I asked my Dr. about this product he told me to try and out for 2 months to see if it would help with my bad cholesterol (many years of bad food choices) to my surprise it worked better then expected. With a new clearer diet and these pills I am back on track. My Dr. is very happy with the results. Great product recommended to my wife and friends.
Lost 6 pounds in a month, been trying to make better food choices now that I am spending money of fat loss supplement. It's been a great self motivator. This product has really helped me stay away from the late night sweets. Thank you Labrada Nutrition.
I couldn't believe all the health benefits you can get from a single extract. I am no scientist thats for sure. :) So I decided to try it. I was pleasantly surprised. This is a part of my daily routine now and will stay that way for a long time. I feel better, my stomach is looking tighter. Can't wait to see what I can do in the future.
Great product it really curbs your appetite! I will definitely order this again real soon as i just ran out.
This is a great product to help curb your appetite. Both my husband & myself are losing weight, but even better, now we don't feel that urge to snack at night. I have a heart problem and cannot have caffeine, so I was a little worried at first. I started with only 2 tablet, then 4 with no side effects. If you want fast results, this product might not work for you, but we are happy with a 1 pound loss a week and more energy. We are on our 5th bottle and have spread the word to our children who need to lose weight. Its nice to know companies out there are searching for healthy alternatives to fat loss. The more time we spend walking at night the better off we feel.
Needed help with controlling my appetite. I wanted to lose weight but it seems I'm always hungry, (go figure) Since using this product I have found that I can eat a good deal less and not be hungry. I have been using about a month and have lost 3 pounds. I think this is good because I know it's better to lose slowly and steadily. I definitely will be reordering and would recommend it.
I've been taking this product since the end of May and it helped me lose weight. I have noticed a change around my belly and hip area. I have been exercising at least 5 days a week for 45 min. Recommended to friends and family. We will see if it helps them too! I wasn't doing much physical activity before hand so this was a big change for me. I don't expect the weight to keep dropping as fast but the results are great so far!
I usually don't buy weight loss supplements since I've had bad experiences in the past (increased heart rate, feeling anxious, and found out this was caused by stimulants in the products themselves. Dr. Oz's special on the positive effects on the Garcinia Cambogia fruit and the other benefits (such as better mood, decreased cravings, more energy, cholesterol control) made me want to try some out. I was recently told by my doctor that I had very high triglycerides even though my diet was better than most around me and I wasn't overweight - found out high triglycerides runs in the family. After using it for 2 weeks and only 3 pills a day, I was losing 2 lbs a week. I continued to exercise and eat well while taking the pills which is the reason for the increased weight loss (you can't expect to lose anything if you're not a least somewhat active). I trust this product. I can only imagine how much I'd lose if I took the recommended dosage. I asked my doctor about this supplement and she couldn't find any negative effects, just recommended that after using it for 3 months, give it a month break and start again. Just follow the directions and you should notice a difference as well (but don't expect to take it today and lose weight tomorrow!).
This product works VERY well. Best if taken 30 minutes prior to eating OR if hungry...either way it will reduce the amount of food you eat, When I get hungry I have trouble controlling myself, then I overeat. This product really helped. A very worthwhile purchase!
I just purchased Garcinia Cambogia a week ago Tuesday. And I am totally impressed. It really has curbed my appetite - restless nights gone-and piece of mind. No racing thoughts which is big for me! This has gotten me back on my clean eating track and I can't wait to get back in gym to see more results!
