									There are thousands of people (maybe more!) who are interested in weight loss and
keeping their bodies in good shape. They scour the internet looking for different ways
to keep from gaining weight such as suppressing hunger, eating foods that boost
metabolism, and the like. They may be surprised to know that a relatively unknown
plant from India may help them fight their battle against the bulge. Caralluma is a
natural, plant-based ingredient that is used in some appetite suppressants as a way to
effectively control food cravings and hunger.

Caralluma, also known by its scientific name as caralluma fimbriata, is a plant that
falls under the cactus family. A very salient plant, the caralluma is known for its
appetite suppressing and weight loss properties, making it a revolutionary ingredient
for weight loss supplements. It is also known to have the ability to lower blood sugar
levels, so those who are diabetic may benefit from this plant as well. Its roots (no pun
intended) go back to India, where it grows wild in parts of the country and is known
to be a food that enhances one's endurance. The caralluma is very similar to the
popular hoodia gordonii cactus found in the Kalahari Desert of Africa as they both can
suppress the appetite and lessen hunger pains.

But how does caralluma work to help promote weight loss? Research has shown that
the caralumma fimbriata plant has properties that blocks enzyme activity, particularly
those that are responsible for the formation of fat. It forces the fat reserves to be
burned, which of course results in weight loss or the prevention of weight gain. When
it comes to suppressing appetite, the caralluma plant does so by affecting the appetite
control mechanism of the brain, causing the person to not feel hungry for a long
period of time. For those who are apprehensive about taking weight loss supplements,
it may assure them to know that the caralluma fimbriata has no toxins or compounds
that could lead to serious side effects in the body.

In addition caralluma has undergone two human double blind, randomized, placebo
controlled human clinical trials. The safety of caralluma has been reviewed by three
toxicology studies. These studies were done by exacting OECD guidelines and
caralluma fimbriata has achieved self-affirmed GRAS [Generally Recognized As Safe]
status.

Although generally recoginzed as safe, it's always a good idea to talk with your doctor
before starting any weight loss supplements.
