Caralluma fimbriata, is an edible cactus found in India shown to suppress hunger, enhance physical endurance, burn fat, and improve muscle tone. Has been used for centuries to help tribes survive famine, drought, food shortage, and long hunting trips.
On the fat front, Caralluma fimbriatacontains pregnane glycosides, a phytochemical that blocks the enzyme citrate lyase. When this enzyme’s activity is stopped, your body cannot produce fat!
Caralluma fimbriataalso blocks Malonyl Coenzyme A, another enzyme involved in fat production. By halting the activity of both of these enzymes, Caralluma fimbriataforces your body to start burning its own fat reserves, thereby promoting fat loss.
When it comes to suppressing appetite, Caralluma fimbriatais believed to act directly on the appetite control center of your brain, specifically the hypothalamus tricking your body into thinking its full!
But Is It Safe to Use?
Based on centuries of traditional use, there appears to be little to no adverse effects from Caralluma fimbriata when used responsibly. To this day, many people in India eat it daily with no issues. And of those taking the extract during the studies, few complained of any side effects.

On my first day of taking Caralluma Fimbriata I took the pills at around 6 pm, an hour before dinner time. When dinner was ready at about 7 I didn’t even finish my whole plate. I just wasn’t really interested in eating and then after dinner I just tidied up and watched T.V for a couple of hours and then went to bed. Getting a snack didn’t even cross my mind!
There are no side effects other than a slight increase in thirst. I drink water all day, so increasing that intake is okay. No light headedness, stomach upsets, or intestinal disruptions. I limit my salt intake very closely, but I noticed I have even less desire for salted foods when taking Caralluma. And sweet intake is reduced significantly. I'll stick with it and see what happens over the winter - my worst season for eating comfort foods!
Finally - a product that works to reduce my hunger! I have taken a lot of different products, but nothing has worked until now. Taken as directed, I am not so hungry and I eat less at each meal.
