COCONUT CREEK, FL--(Marketwired - June 17, 2014) - NutraFuels, Inc. ("NTFU") (PINKSHEETS: NTFU), manufacturer of oral spray dietary supplements, announced today that it has produced and plans to launch a patented appetite control and weight management oral spray using Garcinia Camogia. NTFU will sell the product under the brand name SuperCitrimax.
Garcinia cambogia is a small, pumpkin-shaped fruit, sometimes called tamarind. Though native to Indonesia, it is also grown in India, Southeast Asia, and West and Central Africa. The HCA extract from Garcinia Cambogia supplement aids in weight loss by doing two things: It helps to block fat, and it suppresses your appetite.
HCA blocks fat by inhibiting a key enzyme that your body needs to make fat from carbohydrates: Citrate lyase. Usually carbohydrates or sugars that are not used immediately or stored in other forms are converted into fats. When HCA inhibits citrate lyase, the fat-making process is halted and the production of LDL (bad cholesterol) and triglycerides decrease.
HCA also suppresses appetite by increasing serotonin levels. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter in your brain that makes you feel good. It's a target of many antidepressant medications. Having low levels of serotonin may make you feel depressed or anxious; it drives many people into emotional or reactive eating. By increasing serotonin levels, HCA improves mood and suppresses the drive to react to stressful situations with food. As you eat less, your body senses this and it releases stored fat in your fat cells.
Many studies have shown promise. One randomized placebo-controlled study followed 60 obese persons for 8 weeks. With a calorie-restricted diet (1200 kcal/day) and an HCA dose of 1320 mg/day, the experimental group lost an average of 14 pounds (compared to 6.1 pounds in the placebo group). The participants also noted reduced appetite.
"We believe in the product and its benefits to consumers", said Edgar Ward, Chief Executive Officer of NTFU, "Now it's time for us to develop a recognizable brand for this new dietary product. Our retailers and consumers have been very receptive to the product so far and we expect this to continue."
