Caralluma Fimbriata: The Next Weight Loss Heavyweight?

Jul 11, 2008
Caralluma Fimbriata. Say what? I can almost hear you now..."not another fad diet supplement!" Well, yes and no. First, lets get into just what the heck Caralluma is...and what it's not.

Caralluma, which is a succulent, is a not so well known member of the cactus family. It grows profusely in India and the surrounding areas but can be found as far north as Afghanistan.

For literally hundreds of years it has been eaten by the locals of the region as a vegetable and can be eaten both raw and cooked. The green follicles of the plant are usually boiled, salted and eaten. It is also very popular there in making a variety of different chuntney's and pickles.

For generations the local people found this vegetable seemed to contain certain properties when eaten. Not only did it as an appetite and diet suppressant but also seemed to quench their thirst while boosting their energy levels. Because of this it became wildly popular as both a "hunting and famine food" sustaining the people when food stuffs became scarce.

All the apparent benefits have now caught the eye of modern science and this once native plant of Indian culture is making an impressive appearance on the world dieting scene. Besides having the ability to suppress the appetite and boost endurance it also appears to be a factor in lowering blood sugar levels as well.

Researchers believe that Caralluma extracts act on the brains main hunger centers thereby reducing your feelings of being hungry. More importantly, research indicates this appetite suppression action takes place without any significant disturbances in the functions of your neurotransmitter functions unlike many of the best known appetite suppressants on the market today.

More recently, studies are finding that pregnane glycoside, an important extract of Caralluma seems to be not only an effective appetite suppressant but also a major player in the reduction of BMI, fat, blood glucose, blood pressure and a noticeable reduction in waste and hip circumferences as well.

Benefits do not appear to stop there as an increase in lean body mass, capillary health improvement, memory function and hearing improvement and the lowering of joint inflammation are also some noted as major benefits. Further studies are also concluding that there appears to be enhancement in HDL/LDL ratio's in the blo

Surprisingly, Caralluma Fimbriata is a completely natural appetite suppressant and does not contain any artificial ingredient, chemicals or any type of preservative which more recent studies indicate can possibly interfere in the body's natural dieting process.

As far as any know toxicity or adverse reaction associated with the use of Caralluma, there have never been any recorded instance of either. In fact, there have been numerous studies done of late to determine the safety factor in human consumption. The main facts remain. This vegetable has been eaten by countless generations without any know consequence. Not sure there are any better studies than that.

If you haven't heard much about Caralluma yet you will in the near future as this newcomer to the weight loss arena is poised to take the appetite suppression market by storm. I expect it will overtake Hoodia, which is not only more expensive but less effective and not as readily available.
