Super CitriMax is a patented weight-loss supplement containing a 60 percent concentration of the supplement's active ingredient, hydroxycitric acid extracted from the dried fruit or rind of Garcinia cambogia, states Natrol. Garcinia cambogia, a South Asian fruit resembling a small pumpkin, contains the acid, which inhibits the body's fat production.
Super CitriMax is a blend of calcium, potassium and hydroxycitric acid extract that the body processes much more easily than calcium-based hydroxycitric acid ingredients, notes Natrol. Studies show that hydroxycitric acid helps people eat less and keeps the body from manufacturing fat, notes the National Center for Biotechnology Information. For hundreds of years, Southeast Asians have used dried Garcinia cambogia rinds to preserve and flavor food, and to prevent and relieve gas.
