What You Should Know
Caralluma Fimbriata is a succulent star shaped plant that has been eaten in rural India for centuries. It is eaten raw as a vegetable, with spices or preserved in chutneys or pickles. It is also traditionally known in India as a famine food since it supposedly suppresses hunger and appetite. As a result of this, manufacturers of weight loss products are becoming increasingly interested in Caralluma Fimbriata and we are beginning to see it as a featured ingredient used by some weight loss supplements.
Caralluma Fibrianta is not the name of a weight loss supplement, but rather the name of an ingredient, which has captured the interest of manufacturers of weight loss supplements.
Caralluma Fimbriata is being increasingly compared to the wildly popular appetite suppressant Hoodia Gordinii. Hoodia Gordinii is, of course, a cactus that has become an extremely common ingredient in weight loss products. Hoodia Gordinii is used by tribesmen in South Africa to stave off hunger while they are hunting, and it is for these reason that Caralluma Fimbriata is said to have similar properties. This Indian plant is also used by tribesmen in India to stave off hunger while on long hunting trips. Caralluma Fimbrita is thought by some weight loss manufacturers to be the perfect alternative as a weight loss ingredient to the now banned metabolic stimulant Ephedrine. A small clinical trial carried out in India has shown that Caralluma Fimbrita does have modest appetite suppressing qualities. One of the main weight loss products that contains Caralluma Fimbriata is a product called Slimaluma. Slimaluna can be ordered from online stores and costs $19.99 for sixty capsules.

Manufacturers of weight loss products are becoming increasingly enthusiastic as regards Caralluma Fimbriata. Some diet experts, however, urge caution as they say that there simply has not been enough research carried out on Caralluma Fimbriata. No one wants to see a repeat of the recent ephedrine recall. Doctors say that although some clinical trials to date have shown modest appetite suppressing benefits there is no evidence that the small amount of Caralluma Fimbriata present in some products is actually enough to yield weight loss benefits. Best to wait and see what further research into Caralluma Fimbriata turns up.
