Other Names: Brindal Berry, Brindall Berry, Brindle berry, Gorikapuli, HCA, Hydroxycitric acid, Malabar Tamarind.

Brindall Berry Extract contains 30% Hydroxycitric acid by weight. Hydroxycitrate is a competitive inhibitor of citrate co-enzyme in fatty acid biogenesis and inhibits carbohydrate absorption. Hydroxycitric acid is extracted from the pericarp of Garcinia cambogia whose supplements are derived from the fruit and rind of these plants native to India. Garcinia cambogia has been used as a condiment in Thai and Indian cuisine and has been promoted for weight control.

Animal studies investigating Brindall Berry Extract revealed that it suppressed fatty acid synthesis, suppressed food intake and decreased gains of body weight. There are only a few human studies examining the use of Brindall Berry Extract. In a study containing 135 patients, the effect of Brindall Berry Extract on weight and total body fat was examined. When the study was finished, the investigators found no changes in either body weight or amount of fat in either the group using the extract or the control group of patients. The investigators were surprised by this result as previous information reported that Brindall Berry Extract had a significant effect on body weight or fat mass when used alone or in combination with other ingredients. The results were disappointing.

At present, therapeutic effects of Brindall Berry Extract supplementation are not supported by sound clinical data; therefore its use is not recommend for weight loss or any other reason.
