Caralluma is an ideal supplement for those wishing to lose or maintain weight. It does not have any stimulant effects. It has been used as a food for centuries to curb the sensation of hunger. Caralluma is an edible cactus native to India.
In one of the more recent studies testing the effectiveness of Caralluma Fimbriata extract on obese and overweight study subjects, a team of scientists found that comparing an extract group against a placebo group resulted in thinner waistlines in the Caralluma Fimbriata extract supplement group.
A dosage of 500 milligrams twice daily of Caralluma Fimbriata extract over a 12-week period resulted in a decrease in waist by 2 and ½ inches on average.
