Title: Hydroxycitric Acid in the Treatment of Obesity: a Critique of Previous Findings, Journal of the American Medical Association

Mainstream medicine is slowly trying to increase its knowledge of nutritional products.

One product used in some nutraceuticals is hydroxycitric acid which is derived from a plant rind. For some patients, it may curb appetite without being dangerous. I do not know if it works, but felt the study done on it was flawed in many ways, including a lack of understanding of the fragility of this plant product and the great variation in various products.

Technical and not easy to read for those without a strong biochemistry background.
