•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.
