Slimaluma

A patented form of the Indian herb Caralluma Fimbriata, used to suppress appetite.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Supplements that are derived from native plants and have long been used to suppress appetite are gaining popularity as a weight loss aid in the U.S. For instance, products containing the African cactus plant, Hoodia Gordonii. More recently, a popular plant from India called Caralluma Fimbriata, which has been used for centuries as a famine food and appetite suppressant, has been manufactured into a weight loss supplement. Caralluma Fimbriata is cooked as a vegetable, used in preserves like chutneys and pickles, or eaten raw, but in the supplement form, the active components of the plant are extracted to create a concentrated pill or capsule.

Under the patented extract name, Slimaluma, the Caralluma Fimbriata becomes a weight loss supplement that can block fat accumulation. It also works by suppressing appetite by acting on certain areas of the brain that control satiety. Both of these mechanisms help to reduce caloric intake and therefore result in a loss of weight.

Slimaluma has been clinically tested for efficacy by two human clinical trials, one in India and one in the U.S., and has been validated as a safe supplement as long as it is consumed according to the label directions.

A variety of nutrapharmaceutical companies sell weight loss products that contain Slimaluma. Be sure to read the label carefully so that it includes the Slimaluma trademarked ingredient before purchasing it in order to ensure that you are getting the real deal.

INGREDIENTS

A supplement containing Slimaluma extract can contain a variety of other vitamins and herbs. There is no single manufacturer or retailer.

Some popular products containing Slimaluma are Country Life's GenaSlim, it contains Caralluma Fimbriata extract (Slimaluma) and green tea extract in the form of EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate); Now's Slimaluma Plus, which contains Caralluma Fimbriata, Yerba Mate and Green Tea; and Slim 10, which contains 10 popular diet pill ingredients like Slimaluma and Hoodia.

ADMINISTRATION

Slimaluma is typically taken one to two times per day one hour before lunch and again before dinner.

DIET and EXERCISE

There is no specific diet or exercise plan to follow while taking Slimaluma. Most weight loss experts will recommend that you follow a low-calorie and low-fat eating plan in addition to a regular exercise program in order to successfully lose weight.

CONCLUSION

Slimaluma is a weight loss supplement that can help you to lose weight by its ability to suppress appetite and block the formation of fat cells. This patented extract has undergone clinical trials and has been presented in the "First World Congress on Therapies Against Obesity" which took place in Paris in May 2006, under the category of being the latest innovation in the natural products field in the fight against obesity.

Even though this product does contain hope for those who are obese or overweight, it is still necessary to talk to your doctor before taking Slimaluma since the Federal Food and Drug Administration have not yet approved it and there may be contraindications to taking this supplement.

Moreover, supplements are not a long-term solution to sustained weight loss since the mechanism for how they work halts once you stop taking the product. Therefore, many people will gain their lost weight back. Sustained weight loss can only come from a committed lifestyle that includes healthy eating and regular exercise.
