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 belongs to the cactus family and is known as a succulent. It grows wild in much of India and as far north as Afghanistan and the surrounding areas.

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.

Of course, modern science has now caught up with all the benefits of Caralluma Fimbriata and the new arrival of this succulent cactus is just now becoming very popular for not only being able to suppress your appetite and boost your endurance but it also appears to lower blood sugar.

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

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.

There have never been any recorded instance of adverse reaction or toxicity in the extensive studies undertaken to determine it’s safety in human consumption. The fact that it has been eaten for centuries should be proof for certain of it’s benefits and long term positive effects on the human body.

Be prepared for a media avalanche as Caralluma Fimbriata becomes poised to overtake the current appetite suppression market. I fully expect this to become even more popular that the current Hoodia craze with this product being even less expensive while being far more effective.
