Bio-Citrin is a natural weight loss supplement that originated from the fruit Garcinia Cambogia, a fruit that is prominent in India. The fruit is sour, so it is not typically eaten fresh. Instead, it is used as a spice while cooking. Long ago, it was discovered that the fruit’s rind contains a beneficial compound called hydroxycitrate. Soon, researchers found that combining hydroxycitrate with BioPerine and chromium polynicotinate created an impressive and effective weight-loss medication.

How Does Bio-Citrin Work? 


The chemicals in hydroxycitrate work as an appetite suppressant when combined with the bioperine and chromium polynicotinate. Yet, it does not affect the nervous system adversely, as you might see in other weight loss supplements.  Hydroxycitrate inhibits the enzyme which turns carbohydrate into fat and has effects of appetite suppression, which then leads to feelings of satiety (or feeling full).  Research has indicated that hydroxycitrate assists in preventing the storage of fat in the body and controlling appetite. Additionally, you can see improvement in exercise performance by limiting the use of stored energy in the muscles, which helps prevent fatigue. 


Along with hydroxycitrate, Bio-Citrin also contains a pterin derivative called bioperine. The bioperine kickstarts the body’s thermogenic activity. Thermogenic activity is the process of heat production in the body. This typically occurs when the metabolic rate increases, causing energy to be produced from the food a person consumes and from what is stored in the body (such as body fat). Bioperine increases serotonin as well. When the body has higher levels of bioperine, people are more likely to have a higher metabolism which helps them burn calories faster. 

Chromium Polynicotinate 

Chromium polynicotinate enhances the effects of insulin and assists in the metabolization of fat, protein, and carbohydrates. During metabolization, it curbs the body’s cravings for carbs and sugars. Additionally, it helps to lower cholesterol and reduce the loss of lean muscle. 

Overall, Bio-Citrin is a fantastic weight loss supplement. Not only can a person lose weight from the increase in metabolism and the body’s ability to break down carbohydrates easier, but Bio-Citrin also assists in normalizing lipid levels, increasing insulin efficiency, lowering cholesterol, and enhancing energy. Keep in mind that every weight loss medication is more effective if you also have a healthy lifestyle that includes eating clean and regularly exercising.
