Chemical Properties:
  1. Hydroxycitric acid ((-)-HCA) is an important organic acid. It is a derivative of citric acid. It is contained in natural Hibiscus plants. Its molecular formula is C6H8O8. It is composed of polyhydric alcohols and polybasic acids. The highly active Chemicalbook molecule of Chembook can not only prepare health products such as calcium salt and potassium salt with high content in the unit molecule, but also use its multi-active functional group as the prodrug intermediate of some new drugs; it can also be prepared by esterification reaction. Fine chemical products such as toxic special plasticizers.
  1. Hydroxycitric acid citrate lyase catalyzes the cleavage of citrate outside the mitochondria into oxaloacetate and acetyl-CoA. Citrate lyase is widely distributed in animal tissues and is believed to play a role in the conversion of carbohydrates to fat and gluconeogenesis.
  2. Hydroxycitric acid can inhibit the cleavage of citric acid into oxaloacetate and acetyl-CoA outside the mitochondria by inhibiting the activity of citrate lyase. Acetyl-CoA is a molecule that plays a key role in the process of energy storage as fat. . And Chemicalbook also, (-)-HCA may only work at a certain metabolic level, and will not directly affect the central nervous system like those typical appetite suppressants. Therefore, pre-intake (-)-HCA, and Performing aerobic exercise after the body absorbs nutrients (posta-bsorptively) can enhance the role of gluconeogenesis and help improve endurance. Moreover, carnitine and biologically active chromium may also help strengthen this endurance enhancing effect of (-)-HCA.
  3. Studies have shown that (-)-HCA can not only inhibit the synthesis of fatty acids and fats, but also reduce appetite and food intake, and ultimately reduce weight. In addition, (-)-HCA also has a good effect on appetite control . Serotonin (5-HT) is a neurotransmitter necessary for many body behavioral functions (such as mood, Chemicalbook sleep and appetite control, etc.), and it will affect the body’s feeding behavior and body weight. If the body’s serum 5-HT level increases, there will also be a decrease in food intake, a decrease in weight, and an increase in energy expenditure. (-)-HCA can significantly inhibit the reabsorption of 5-HT, and increase the body’s serum 5-HT level.
