•Caralluma is a flowering succulent plant in the dogbane  family, with about 140 species.Caralluma grows in Africa and has many medicinal purposes. Caralluma is also found in East India, where it is often used as an natural appetite suppressant. .



Like hoodia, caralluma fimbriata has been used to suppress appetite, and enhance endurance, as well as a portable food for hunting. It is also sometimes considered a "famine food," used during periods of famine to re. For centuriesduce hunger pains.


Caralluma fimbriata contains pregnane glycosides, a phytochemical that blocks the enzyme citrate lyase. When this enzyme is stopped, your body cannot produce fat. Caralluma Fimbriata blocks the enzymes responsible for breaking down and producing fatty acids in the body. It

also blocks Malonyl Coenzyme A, another enzyme used by the body in fat production. It interfiers with the activity of both of these enzymes, forcing your body to burn its own fat reserves, resulting in fat loss.

What digestive enzymes do

Digestive enzymes occur naturally in the body. Their purpose is to add to the food enzymes that are already present in raw food, to digest food.


Digestive enzymes are secreted from the pancreas into the stomach and small intestine. They are responsible for breaking down the foods we eat so that nutrients get to all of the cells in the body. They also flush out toxins and protect us from bad bacteria’s.


We are given a certain amount of enzymes when we are born, and then we have to replenish our supply ,so we have enough for proper digestion of food. Researchers suggest that The length of your life, may depend on the rate of enzymes being used up, in an organism. The increased use of food enzymes promotes a decreased rate of exhaustion of enzymes in the body, and therefore you should live longer.


When foods are not well-digested, they remain in the stomach and can rot and putrefy.


This can cause a buildup of waste in the colon. This build up starts decaying, which creates bacteria and toxins. The toxins seep through the walls of our bowels, into the blood system , and move them into the body.

This causes symptoms like constipation,gas, bloat, bad digestion, fatigue, weight gain or weight loss, headaches, and more.

Digestive enzymes hep the body to digest your food more thourghly, which helps eliminate toxins.


When you cook your food at 118 degrees, or higher, it destroys enzymes. There are no living enzymes in cooked foods over this temperature.


Digestive enzymes also support your body’s ability to maintain optimum pH level, which is crutial to your Health.
