Weight Management Breakthrough

In today's weight-loss industry it is rare to find a weight-loss product with more than one mechanism of action. In the vast majority of cases, most products help you lose weight in one way only - either by suppressing the appetite, boosting your energy level or blocking the absorption of dietary fat.

The problem with single-acting weight-loss product is that your body soon adjusts to its action and reverses the weight-loss process. How many times have you lost weight only to discover that the weight comes back faster than you took it off? Your body causes this "rebound" effect either by increasing your appetite for "fattening" foods or by decreasing the efficiency the process by which your food is converted into energy.

A Unique Fruit Acid

Citri-Shape is a unique weight-loss product developed by a major pharmaceutical company in the 1980's. It has also been studied in other research laboratories. The active ingredient in Citri-Shape is hydroxycitric acid (HCA), a natural extract from the dried rind of Garcina Cambogia, a small reddish fruit used for cooking, curries and medicinal purposes in India.

Numerous scientific studies have shown that HCA curbs appetite, reduces food intake, inhibits liopgenesis (the process by which your body produces fat) and lowers fat and cholesterol storage levels. All this without the adverse side effects caused by prescription drugs.

How Does HCA Work?

HCA exerts its anti-obesity effects through its inhibition of an enzyme called ATP Citrate Lyase, which plays a critical role in energy storage, and in turn, affects your appetite. The appetite comes from feedback signals between your stomach and brain that make you feel hungry. When you eat, your food is reduced to the simple sugar glucose, which is then converted into energy to keep you alive and healthy. When your calorie intake exceeds your body's energy needs, the excess glucose is converted into glycogen, which is stored in your liver and muscles for future conversion into energy as needed.

Weight gain occurs after your body's limited capacity for glycogen storage is reached. At this point, glucose from excessive caloric intake is converted into Acetyl Coenzyme A via a metabolic pathway involving ATP-Citrate Lyase and then into lipid (fat) molecules, which are stored in fat cells throughout your body. HCA inhibits this process by binding tightly to ATP-Citrate Lyase to reduce the production of Acetyl Coenzyme A, which reduces your body's production of fat and cholesterol. HCA also increases the ability of your liver and muscles to synthesize and store glycogen, which, in turn suppresses your appetite and cravings for food.

Weight Loss Effects of HCA are Dose Dependent

When Albino Wistar rats were fed a high-fat diet (with or without HCA) for 15 days by scientists at the Central Food Technological Research Institute in Mysore, India, they observed that the inclusion of HCA in the diet resulted in significant reductions in food intake, body weight, body fat, and serum triglyceride levels, as well as a significant decrease in the feed efficiency ratio. (Ntr Res, 8:209-212: 1988).

The doses of HCA used in this study ranged from 0.5 to 2.0 grams per 100 grams of food. With the greater amount of HCA used, the greater the weight loss exhibited by the experimental animals. The scientists concluded that the direct effects of HCA on food intake, body weight and food efficiency ratio was "supported by the fact that the magnitude of the changes in these parameters were found to be dose dependent."

HCA Induces Weight Loss in Humans

Trials of HCA at the University of South Carolina and the University of Arizona showed that HCA has no adverse side effects. A double-blind study in 1991 by Dr. Anthony Conte, of Hilton Head, South Carolina, studied 22 obese volunteers, using the combination of HCA, chromium and a caloric restricted diet. He found that over a two-month period, subjects who took the HCA/chromium combination, lost an average of 11 pounds, compared to an average loss of only 4 pounds in control subjects. (The Bariatrician, Summer, 1993, p. 17-19).

How Chromium Induces Weight Loss

A common condition in overweight persons is insulin resistance, in which their tissues become insensitive to the pancreatic hormone insulin; which transports glucose and other vital nutrients into our cells for energy production and tissue growth. Insulin resistance in the obese is especially true in muscle, adipose, liver and brain tissue, and is believed to be one of the causes of the excessive fat storage found in such individuals.

One of the best methods of enhancing the function of insulin in metabolizing sugar, fat and protein is the intake of the essential trace mineral chromium, which is not present in adequate amounts in the diets of most Americans. Clinical trials have shown that chromium lowers blood cholesterol and glucose levels and inhibits a process known as Glycosylation, in which protein molecules bind with sugar molecules to form non-functional structures that eventually cause some of the degenerative changes of aging.

Citri-Shape formula provides time-honored herbal remedies of ancient cultures along with modern nutritional advances. This formula contains gymnema sylvestre, used in ancient Hindu medicine to help balance blood sugar level and helps the body make better use of dietary glucose.

With Citri-Shape, a regular exercise program, along with good nutrition, you can lose weight and keep it off.
