Project Title S-Shape
Project Category Innovation
Abstract S-shape is a product made from natural ingredients extracted from selected fruits and vegetables which originate from Sarawak. The chosen fruits and vegetables have high hydroxycitric acid (HCA) content that can help to increase metabolic rate and weight loss. Therefore, packing these fruits and vegetables into dietary supplement in the form of capsule will help people to enjoy the benefit of these fruits and vegetables in a convenient way. This product is made up from 100% of natural resources and there is no risk of chemical effect. Hence, consumers can take the capsule twice a day after meal without any harmful effect to drop pound fast. Instead, HCA which is an active ingredient functions as an active inhibitor of enzyme ATP citrate lyase. The inhibition of ATP citrate lyase would limit the availability for lipid synthesis during consumption of carbohydrate. HCA is famous in the marketplace as weight loss supplement whether it alone or combined with other supplement. HCA can burn excess fat in the body, suppress appetite to avoid over eating and increase the production of glycogen in the liver. Thus, S-shape has the great potential to be marketed as an effective dietary supplement product.
