HCA (Hydroxycitric Acid) is a natural compound extracted from the rind of the fruit called Garcinia Cambogia. HCA has the ability to increase the activity of fat-burning enzymes in the body, making the conversion of excess carbohydrates to body fat more difficult.
HCA inhibits a certain enzyme, e.g. ATP citrate lyase which is responsible for the conversion of dietary carbs into fat. By inhibiting this enzyme, HCA accelerates the body’s own fat losing capabilities.
Chitosan on the other hand is derived from chitin, an amino polysaccharide fiber found in the shells of crawfish, lobster and other shellfish. Chitosan goes through a process called deacetylation which refers to the removal of acetyl groups. This process increases activity by improving solubility.
Chitosan is an extraordinary fat binder. It has the ability to bind lipids in the stomach before they are absorbed through the digestive system into the bloodstream. When Scitec Nutrition’s HCA-Chitosan is taken prior to eating (preferably lunch and dinner) it can significantly reduce the body’s absorption of dietary fats and the conversion of excess carbs into body fat, making this supplement an outstanding fat-loss product.
Sizes: 100 capsules – 50 servings
Directions: Take 2-4 capsules (depending on your body weight)30 minutes prior to lunch and dinner. In order to avoid any type of nutrient deficiency take other supplements (vitamins, minerals or medications) in the morning when Chitosan is not normally used.
