Thumbs down What'll happen if add extra 8 acid in TCA cycle??



I hope this question will not be too stupid.
I am just very interesting in this subject and I am a beginner about biochemistry.

Well.
I found a new health supplement.
It said people need to supplement extra 8 acid (Citrate, Isocitrate, Oxalosuccinate....) to make TCA cycle work perfect.

What I know is TCA cycle produce these acid step by step and what will happen if add extra acid in it?
I just think it may break down the TCA cycle....or I am wrong???

Hello,

I am not too sure about the advice given by the health supplement people!

If you are interested, I think I would look up Anapleurotic sequences, particularly articles by H. L. Kornberg.
