Caralluma Fimbriata: The Next Hoodia?

Jul 14, 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.

In India where it is most popular, it has been eaten by locals for hundreds of years and probably longer. The plants green follicles are most often boiled and salted before being eaten although it can be eaten raw as well. It is also made into chutney's and used in making pickles as well.

Eons ago, the local people who ate this vegetable found that it seemed to contain properties that suppressed their appetite, quenched their thirty and gave their energy a boost as well. It became very popular as a portable "hunting food". In the more arid regions of India it also became known locally as a "famine food" which sustained the population during times of low food production.

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.

Clinical studies are also finding that one main extract of Caralluma, pregnane glycoside, is not only very effective in controlling appetite, obesity and weight gain but also is appearing as a major player in lowering your BMI, body fat, blood glucose levels and blood pressure as well. Reductions in hip and waste circumferences were noted 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.

Caralluma is just now coming onto center stage of the dieting world and I am sure you will be hearing much more about this future giant. Not only do I expect it to overtake Hoodia, which appears to be less effective and more expensive but also most other weight supplements which seems to be only minimally effective.
