Hydroxycitric Acid (Hca)-A Potent Nutraceuticals
On a global scale, obesity has reached epidemic proportions and is a major contributor to the global burden of chronic disease and disability . Currently, more than one billion adults worldwide are overweight and at least 300 million of them are clinically obese (WHO, 2018). Currently, there are many treatments available for obesity; one such method involves the use of anti-obese molecules. Compounds such as Orlistat, Lorcaserin, Sibutramine, Metformin and Hydroxycitric acid (HCA) are used as anti-obese molecules. Among these, Hydroxycitric acid is the preferred molecule since it shows high efficacy in controlling obesity, with minimal side effects. Several pharmaceutical companies extract HCA from the fruits of Garcinia cambogia, a native tree grown in south India. Due to geographical and seasonal limitation of Gracinia fruits, an alternative method of producing HCA is necessary.
