Each Natrol Pure Citrimax capsule contains 250 mg of Citrimax brand of hydroxycitric acid (HCA) from 500 mg of standardized garcinia cambogia. Citrimax works by inhibiting fat creation (lipogenesis) where the body normally converts carbohydrates to fat. When you eat carbohydrates, they are digested into glucose (blood sugar) to be used as energy. Glucose molecules not immediately needed for energy are stored - either in muscle tissue as glycogen or in fat cells. Muscle tissue can only hold a limited amount of glycogen, the rest must be stored as fat - when you consume too many carbohydrates. The enzyme needed to convert glucose to fat is called ATP-citrate-lyase. Citrimax is a competitive inhibitor of this enzyme ATP-citrate-lyase. This enzyme converts citrate to Acetyl-CoA, which is the last carbon source necessary for fatty acid synthesis. The enzyme is also important in maintaining that Acetyl-CoA pool necessary for fatty acid and cholesterol synthesis, especially during high lipid producing states induced by high carbohydrate feeding. Inhibition of this enzyme eliminates the 2 carbon source used for manufacturing fatty acids and cholesterol. In animal studies, administration of HCA (Citrimax) caused lower food intake. This may be due to the liver reducing the conversion of carbohydrates and fatty acids to fat, and instead making them available for hepatic glycogen stores. This may also be the mechanism for observed appetite suppression in animals. Curbs appetite - Results in reduced food intake. Inhibits Production of Fat and Cholesterol - Increases clearance of LDL cholesterol Increases Production of Glycogen - Test subjects report increased energy Safe, Non-Stimulating - Will not cause side effects like central nervous systems stimulants such as insomnia, nervousness, depression or rapid heart rate. Little or No Development of Tolerance - Won't become ineffective over time. To maximize weight loss, Take one capsule three times per day 30 to 60 minutes before meals. (Note: CitriMax contains 50% HCA. Thus, 1,000 milligrams CitriMax equals 500 milligrams HCA.)

Folic acid (or folate) is a B vitamin found mainly in green leafy vegetables, beans, asparagus, citrus fruits and juices, whole grain foods and liver. However, it is difficult to get enough folic acid through diet alone. You can make up the difference by taking a multivitamin or folic acid supplement. If you are a woman in your reproductive years, it is especially important that you get adequate folic acid. Folic acid is important if you may soon become pregnant or you are in the early weeks of pregnancy. It can help protect your baby against birth defects of the spine and brain, like spina bifida, or "open spine". You and your baby need folic acid most during the period that starts one month before you conceive through the early months of the pregnancy. Folic acid's potential to reduce the risk of neural tube defects is so important that the Food and Drug Administration is requiring that by 1998, food manufacturers fortify enriched grain products with folic acid. This will give women another way to get sufficient folate: by eating fortified breads and other grains. Nutrition information on food and dietary supplement labels can help women determine whether they are getting enough folic acid, which is 400 micrograms (0.4 milligrams) a day before pregnancy and 800 micrograms a day during pregnancy. You should not take more than 1000 mcg. daily unless instructed by your doctor.
