A double blind study conducted by Anthony A. Conte, M.D. found that 23 subjects taking a capsule containing 250 mg of HCA plus 100 mcg of chromium three times daily lost an average of 11 lbs. Over two months compared to 4 lbs. For 17 subjects taking a placebo (control group). The volunteers taking the HCA plus chromium lost over 2 ½ times as much weight as those on the placebo. The study included male and female subjects 21 to 55 years of age. Dietary instructions were given to all subjects in an identical manner; emphasis was placed on the values of low-fat, low sugar, low sodium, high fiber, variety, moderation and balance. The study was published in the The Bariatrician (June 1993), the official journal of the American Society of Bariatric (Weight Loss) Physicians.
HCA is extracted from the all-natural fruit rind of Garcinia Cambogia, an exotic species of the citrus family that grows in Southern Asia. Its properties, according to available published scientific investigations, are such that it acts as a safe appetite suppressant and cholesterol-lowering agent. The properties of chromium have been known for many years. It is a key natural mineral that “keeps insulin levels in check by making the hormone more efficient at regulating blood sugar levels” says the U.S. Department of Agriculture. In addition, chromium (GTF): reduces cravings for sweets, increases metabolic rates, helps the body burn fat “preferentially”, helps the body to “preserve” lean muscle mass, increases levels of energy and produces weight loss without undue severe dietary restrictions.
Spontaneous remarks from the subjects taking the capsules containing HCA and chromium included: (1) the easy, convenient way of taking only one capsule three times a day, (2) having nothing to mix or stir, (3) being allowed the variety of ordinary grocery foods, (4) not having to count calories, (5) having an adequate amount of food, (6) eating the same food as other members of the family and (7) above all, they liked looking good and feeling good.
