Caralluma Fimbriata: Move Over Hoodia!

Jul 14, 2008
Caralluma Fimbriata. Almost no one has even heard of it and those who have may be asking just what the heck it is. The first thought for most people is just another fad diet gimmick. But is it? Could it be pure gold in the world of weight loss? Let's find out.

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.

The locals in most regions of India have eaten Caralluma as a vegetable for hundreds of years if not longer. The green leafy parts of the plant are most usually and eaten with a little salt. It can be eaten cooked or raw. Among other things, it is also made into a variety of pickles and different chutney's.

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.

Modern science has now caught up with Caralluma Fimbriata and this new succulent cactus is making a booming appearance in the diet and fitness world. Not only does it appear to have the ability to suppress the appetite and give your endurance a boost but it also looks promising in lowering blood sugar levels as well.

Research has now discovered that extracts of Caralluma Fimbriata appear to act on certain hunger centers in the brain itself thereby causing a reduction in the feelings of hunger. Unlike most appetite suppressants on the market today, Caralluma does not seem to have any type of affect on the neurotransmitters within these hunger centers.

Recent studies also seem to indicate that one important extract, pregnane glycoside, appears to be effective in not only obesity, weight and diet disorders but also in the reductions of fat, BMI, reduction in hip and waste circumferences, blood glucose and blood pressure.

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

Caralluma Fimbriata is completely natural and contains no artificial ingredients. This supplement also does not contain any type of chemicals or preservative which are widely known to possibly interfere with your own body's dieting processes.

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.
