Jarrow Formulas HCActive
Jarrow Formulas® HCActive™ is a 70-percent concentrate of hydroxycitric acid (HCA) stabilized as a potassium-magnesium salt extracted from the fruit of Garcinia cambogia. Many HCA products on the market are stabilized with a potassium-calcium salt, which inhibits absorption.
HCActive was tested at Georgetown University and found to be highly absorbed and more bioavailable than a leading HCA potassium-calcium salt. HCActive supports appetite control and weight management. HCActive is protected by nine U.S. patents.
